Overview

About the property

Villa in Boikatika, Paxos, Greece - Spectacular Location on West Coast

Perched two hundred metres above the magnificent horseshoe bay of Ahai on the west coast of Paxos, the view from Villa Petritis’ terraces is simply stunning. The villa is very comfortable and homely and is arguably the best location on this beautiful island.

Villa Petritis nestles in the tiny hamlet of Boikatika which is a 5 minute walk from the village of Magazia & its bakery, grocery stores and tavernas.

About Richard Watrous

My parents bought Petritis in 1973 and set about its extensive renovation. They chose its location because the East Coast and its three ports become quite frenetic in peak season but Petritis, on the West Coast, remains secluded and tranquil all year round.

I first visited Paxos with my family in 1968 and have visited every year thereafter ... The island will always be my 'second home' as the locals are kind & welcoming and the scenery is idyllic.

A fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Villa Petritis was fabulous. The little extras in the villa like the pool towels, the backgammon set, the books and other really useful day to day things made a real difference both to our luggage weights and to our enjoyment of the holiday. The gardens and views are so beautiful and exactly as shown on the website and the pool was lovely and a perfect size for 2.

The location is great for walkers like ourselves - we didn't hire a car although we did get a scooter for a couple of days. Magazia (10 mins walk) was able to provide for most of our needs via the mini market (which has fresh local bread). The new supermarket next to the fire station looks very comprehensive but only opened a couple of days before we left. The taverna in the middle of the village (O llias) was our most regular stop for dinner and the people there were lovely and the food very good. We were also regulars at the Sunset Taverna at Kastanida where the food and views were fantastic and the people lovely.

Mahi looked after us very well. She kept the villa and gardens immaculate and was easy to contact and really helpful when we had any queries.

Our biggest challenge was leaving the villa to explore the rest of the island but it was lovely to get back after a good walk and cool off in the pool. Can't wait to do it all again....

Very relaxing villa with great views.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in Villa Petritis for 10 days in July and had a lovely time. The villa is perfect for 2 people and the pool is more than enough. Great sun terraces to have breakfast and dinner and the view is breath taking. Rick was great at keeping in touch and helping with ferry info and collection from the port. I would highly recommend hiring a car as other parts of the island are beautiful and also for shopping in Gaios. It is possible to walk to a Taverna just take the torch provided.

Stunning views and lovely, romantic villa

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Villa Petritis. Once you enter through the gate into the courtyard it's as if you're in a world of your own. It's completely away from the touristy bustle of Gaios so if you want a quiet holiday with privacy this is the villa for you. The swimming pool was fabulous (and necessary in the 30+ degree heat) and Mahi was brilliant - sorting out any little glitches and going the extra mile by picking us up at the port when there weren't any taxis available. We were sad to leave.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words & SORRY again that the big storm prior to your arrival caused the pool to be 'out of action' on day 1 for its required ph adjustment. I hope you'll choose to stay at Villa Petritis again in the near future.

Wonderful Villa with a wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place! We had a great time at Villa Petritis and were constantly stunned at the view from the numerous patios. The weather was very hot for us and the variety of sitting areas afforded us shade or sun whenever we wanted. the pool is lovely too and a welcome respite from the heat. The local restaurant (Emeritis) was the best we found on the island and was within a five minute walk. Recommend hiring a small boat to tour around the calm waters and swim or snorkel in the majestic bays around Paxos and Anti Paxos. We had a great time and look forward to visiting again one day.

Romantic hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Villa Petritis.

The villa is a perfect escape. It is very spacious inside and in a beautiful part of the island. Think best for a couple looking to just relax and do nothing in an idyllic setting.

There is plenty of outside seating areas in which you can relax, sunbathe and admire the incredible, uninterrupted view over the sea.

The pool is a very good size, with ample seating area around it, and again facing out over the sea.

It's all very secluded. Quiet, peaceful and very relaxing.

The local village has good places to eat but worth hiring a car for a few days to explore the island, though it doesn't take long. Taxis are plentiful and reliable.

Would wholeheartedly and unreservedly recommend Villa Petritis.
