About the property

Villa in Boikatika, Paxos, Greece - Split level villa with pool in extensive private gardens. 2 double and 1 triple bedroom

Villa Paparouna is hidden away off the Boikatika lane from Magazia to the Erimitis Cliffs and is within easy walking distance of both. It is set within extensive private grounds of which a considerable area has been beautifully landscaped to take advantage of the different levels the villa is situated in and the natural lines of rock that once formed the terraced gardens of the house. There are many colourful and interesting plants to be found.

The private grounds incorporate a 10 by 5 metre infinity pool surrounded by a stone terrace that offers breath taking views of the Cyprus forest overlooking the rugged West Coast down to the horseshoe bay of Ahai just above the famous blue caves. On clear days the southern islands of Lefkas and Cephalonia are visible.

EOT Certificate 0829K91000436901

The villa is built on two levels and has many areas to enjoy both sun and shade in privacy. The upstairs terrace leads out to a large partly–shaded terrace that has a flight of stone steps leading down to the pool. There is a large Pergola that has been built to provide both shade and tranquillity and offers a relaxing place to sit adjacent to both the pool and Barbeque area.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week we have had in gorgeous Paxos and the stunning villa.

Chris was so helpful from start to finish. Always answering questions and giving us so much information.

The villas was perfect. Gorgeous views, super swimming pool area and spacious inside. The maid came twice in the week which was fantastic too.

We hired a boat for one day which was a super day and great to see the whole island and gorgeous beaches.

The mountain taverna in Fontana was so delicious and such good value too.

Already wondering when we can book another week there!

Thanks so much to Chris. A truly memorable holiday.

A quiet retreat in a fabulous location.

  • 4 of 5

Our party of six arrived at Villa Paparouna and were extremeley pleased with the Villa, facilities and location.

The villa is located on a quiet road away from everthing and has a pool that is cleaned reguarly. All the rooms are very spacious and have en-suite bathrooms that were larger than we expected. The kitchen is adequate and has a dishwasher. The view from the Villa is outstanding and in the evenings the BBQ can be used after buying fresh produce from Giaos.

The property was well maintained with excellent Wi-fi and all bedrooms were cleaned twice during our stay and towels changed.

There are several restaurants nearby with superb views and the local Erimitis beach which is a jewel to have so close to the Villa.

If you want a quiet getaway then this is the place.

Many thanks to Chris Wilkinson and all the people who look after Villa Paparouna for a most wounderful stay.

Daniel, Emma, Phil, Charlotte, Louise and Mahmoud.

A little bit of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my husband stayed in this beautiful Villa for a week.

The property was exceptionally clean and every aspect was maintained to a very high level from the villa itself to the wonderful gardens and the pool. There was a handy man available if any problems arose(which there wasn't) and a lady came to clean three times over our stay.

I also was very impressed with the attention to detail provided by the owners down to a hamper when we arrived with little necessities and treats to start our holiday, also instructions and directions concerning the location. The island itself is wonderful but I do recommend hiring a car so you can explore all the little beaches & Villages. The restaurants which impressed us most were Carnayo in Gaios & Bens Bar in Loggos(best octopus ever!!!).

There is no question I will be recommending this Villa to all my friends as it was more than I had hoped for

Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at “Villa Paparouna” in Paxos in May of this year. We found it to be such a special place, very unspoiled and the accommodation was excellent. The Villa was very comfortable – a home from home-and had every facility you could want on this type of holiday. The pool was a great asset and spotless as was the Villa, lovely decor and gorgeous soft furnishings , plenty of bedroom and bathroom space and a very well equipped kitchen. We even had a barbecue one night as there is a barbecue area beside the pool. All in all it was a terrific experience and a beautiful place made all the more enjoyable by the great accommodation “Villa Paparouna”. We will definitely be back.

Just what the Doctor ordered! Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Booking an independent Villa can sometimes come with a little risk. Fear not! Chris made our journey to probably the most beautiful Greek island trouble free from start to finish. The crossing from Corfu to paxos was very easy and having used the hydrofoil going and the ferry on the return , I agree with Chris that the ferry was the best mode of transport however it depends what timing fits in with your arrival or departure. Eating out featured very strongly in our holiday as I always planned to leave the pots and pans behind. Our favourite restaurant was just a short walk down the lane. Erimitis restaurant was the most atmospheric cliff top paradise with amazing sunsets and if you are lucky live classical music. We always booked ahead to guarantee the best seats in the house. We hired a boat for 5 days which was brilliant for getting around the island and visiting anti Paxos where the most beautiful view in the med is to be seen from the cliff top restaurant 200 steps later. Crystal clear water.. Many other wonderful eateries......

The villa was of a high spec and a nice retreat after a hard day walking or at the beach. A super sized pool for swimming, relaxing and ball games. Excellent maid service, so a true holiday, and help on hand when your daughter locks her keys to the annexe in her room, no trouble for Dimitri. To rescue them in time to get to the restaurant! Excellent all round and highly recommended.

We would recommend this place to anyone and hope they enjoy it as much as we did!Sitting down by the pool with the BBQ going,drinking the local wine is definitely where we want to be right now...bliss!

Thankyou for a great stay!!We will be in touch for next summer!

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended


Paxos is blessed with a unique coastal formation of coves, bays, grottoes and quiet beaches and many of the best are within a 10 minute drive. Hiring a boat is simple and can be done at Loggos, Lakka or Gaios.

Anti Paxos offers some of the best sandy beaches in the world and can be reached by one of the many fast boats that leave from Gaios daily. Alternatively you can take your own hired boat around the Island and over to Anti Paxos


Car hire or motorbike is essential to enjoy the Island as, although distances are fairly small, the Island is mountainous and steep at times.

Walking is a favourite must do and some of the best walking experiences of the Island are literally on the doorstep of Villa Paparouna.

Erimitis Cliffs and what must be one of the best sun set locations in the world is a 10 minute walk.

The best beaches, along with Loggos, Lakka and Gaios, are within a 10 minute drive.
