About the property

GR735

The Villa Adriana and Studio, a romantic Venetian 19th century pink-stuccoed house with thick stone walls. One of the landmarks of Lakka. Newly restored to very high standards, our home is set in one acre of ancient majestic olive trees offering complete seclusion, tranquillity and privacy. Yet it is only 5 minutes walk down the hill to Lakka village's harbour with its excellent tavernas and beaches with crystal clear water. And 2 minutes to a hotel swimming pool. Adriana’s interiors are decorated in a comfortable contemporary style, while preserving original features such as the olive wood lintels and stone window alcoves. Large shuttered windows and high ceilings give a luxurious atmosphere of spaciousness and light. Beyond the large terraces, paved walks through the gardens, with its pavilion look out onto spectacular views of Lakka Bay with its famed turquoise waters and the open sea. The lower half is a light, airy studio . A paradise for families, walkers, honeymooners and other romantic couples. Greek GovernmentTourist licence EOT1238/TT.

Why Kenneth Rea chose Paxi (Paxos)

We spend 30 summer holidays travelling round the Greek islands in a happy search for the perfect house on the most idyllic island and we think this is it.

Romantic villa Adriana is about 150 years old, has a wonderful atmosphere, surrounded by gardens in the middle of our centuries old olive grove. We have restored it completely: the traditional outside hides a modern, very light, open plan house that has kept it's Greek roots. It is very peaceful and quiet, but only an 8 minute walk from the beach and five minute walk from the nearest cappuccino in our lovely local village: Lakka with its out door restaurants and shops.

Our guests can use the large local hotel pool for free. This pool is a two minute walk from the house.

In the studio, we love reading in the hammocks, having breakfast on the terrace or in the garden, the short walk under the majestic olive trees to the village. At the villa, we while away many hours in the garden pavilion looking at the view of the boats coming into Lakka bay and admiring the sun setting in the sea. beyond.

What makes this apartment unique

Huge garden with ancient olive trees and lots of flowers, quiet, very private and still so close to the village.

Both the villa and the studio have their own part of the garden and olive grove.

The villa has two large terraces and a garden pavilion with a stunning sea view.

The studio has a large terrace and many secret places to sit in the garden, Both the villa and studio have hammocks underneath the trees.

The studio is light, airy and large ( 6 by 5 meters). The villa is light with high ceilings and a large comfortable living room with a smart open plan kitchen. Ceiling fans, excellent beds, great showers, good modern indoor and outdoor furniture: an unbeatable combination of comfort, stunning nature and architectual beauty. Paradise.

Most peaceful place

One of the most striking things here is the atmosphere – relaxed, laid back. You really feel you are on holiday. Just what I needed. I will keep Villa Adriana and Paxos in my heart.

A lovely villa in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Adriana is wonderful place to stay...set in a quiet and peaceful location on the hill top with the beautiful secluded Orkos beach and Lakka both within walking distance and sunset views over Lakka Bay....we had a delightful and relaxing holiday....so much so we booked up the villa again for 2017 as soon as we got home.

The Perfect Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing time spent on Paxos once again. Very sad to be leaving Villa Adriana. I will miss all of it, from the best spinach pies in the world at the bakery, to walking to Orkos beach through the olive groves. We’re leaving well rested and emotionally restored.
