The perfect Greek Island Villa

  • 5 of 5

We travel a fair amount each year, and are no strangers to hiring apartments and cottages, but Villa Lilac was different.

It is seldom that we stay at a property and think that for two weeks (apart from my scratching the hire car!) there was not a single thing that we would have changed or wished for.

From the evening that Andreas the owner of the villa met us at the ferry, till he so kindly met us at the harbour at dawn to say goodbye, he was the perfect host.

From batteries to bulbs, advice to assistance, he was friendly, discreet and helpful. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble, and all done with courtesy and a genuine interest in making our holiday a special one

The villa is in perfect order, very well equipped, with a powerful wi-fi connection. The quality of the fittings is high – offhand, I cannot think of anything that we needed.

It is serviced and kept spotless almost every day by Lora, who was cheerful and helpful.

Villa Lilac is situated about a kilometre from the town of Gaios, up a (very!) steep track, some 50m from Andreas’ other villa on a hillside overlooking the town.

Surrounded by oak trees, scrub and olive groves, the fabulous infinity pool and poolside dining area is totally private.

Because of its location, you really need a hire car. I would recommend Angelo’s to hire from, but be sure to establish the terms of insurance before you turn a key.

The view is stunning. It was a delight to get up at dawn each morning to watch the loom of the sun break over the distant Greece coast and reach towards Paxos.

Of the three towns on Paxos, Gaios is the one to be near – there are many restaurants, bakeries and shops to visit, plus an ever-changing harbour side as the yachting flotilla’s come and go.

The other two - Lakka and Loggos - are certainly worth visiting. Each has a special charm.

We are boat savvy, and hired a planning motorboat from Spyros Boat Hire in Lakka most days. I can’t recommend him enough – knowledgeable, helpful and most helpful, with well-equipped easy to use boats.

Don’t waste your time with the other boat hire establishments! (See separate Tripadvisor reviews)

The boat took us to those hard to get to coves, and also South to the little island of Antipaxos. The coves there are stunning, and a day at anchor swimming in your very own cove with fish for company, is unforgettable.

In summary, one of the best breaks that we have ever had, largely due to a beautiful Villa, and a perfect host.

We will be back soon!

Superbe semaine

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une magnifique semaine sur l'île de Paxos et dans la maison d'Andreas.

Avant notre arrivée il nous a aidé pour la location d'une voiture et les informations concernant notre arrivée à Paxos. Une fois sur place, il nous a accueilli chaleureusement. Andreas a été attentif au bon déroulement de notre séjour jusqu'à dans l'urgence. En effet notre bateau de retour sur Corfu a été annulé à la dernière minute et grâce à Andreas nous avons pu trouver un bateau qui nous permette de rejoindre Corfu et de ne pas manquer notre vol de retour. MERCI encore!

La villa offre une vue magnifique sur Gaios et la mer. L' espace intérieur et extérieur est très confortable et la piscine est magnifique même si un peu fraiche fin octobre. Mieux vaut à cette période profiter de la température agréable de la mer.

Nous recommandons sans hésitation cette villa tant pour son confort et sa vue que pour la gentillesse de son propriétaire. Nous conseillons tout de même la location d'une voiture qui permet d'explorer cette magnifique île.

Lovely Lilac Lilium with fabulous view over Gaios!

  • 5 of 5

Last year was our 2nd stay at Lilac Lilium. A family of 5 we have been going to Paxos for 8 years now so know the island well. The villa is located a short, but steep, walk from Gaios port which is great for access to the small town, to the restaurants and to the ferries to Antipaxos.

The villa itself is very well appointed. Outside there is a lovely terrace and outside eating area, around the pool, with views out over Gaios to sea. Inside the kitchen and living areas area well equipped and the bedrooms and shower rooms attractively finished. There is a 3rd double bed up a ladder on an open mezzanine - good for young teens.

Andreas is a fabulous host who will take care of every little thing with no fuss. He has the help of Plami, the maid, who comes in daily, although you would never know she was there unless you needed her. We would be very happy to return to Lilac Lillium!

Fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

Our visit started with a friendly coffee with Andreas in a harbour cafe where he gave us lots of information about places to go and made us feel very welcome. The villa is up a steep hill and the views are spectacular though still very close to town. The facilities in the villa were excellent with striking artworks inside and a great outdoor seating area by the pool. I would thoroughly recommend this property and we are planning a return visit!

Autumn weekend

  • 5 of 5

Lilac villa made our long weekend exceptional. The property is located in a very nice area with great view and it is also very close to Gaios, main port.

The inside of the villa is very convenient and makes you feel home. The owner was very kind and helpful with useful information for the island.

I would defenetly recommend this property to friends who want to enjoy their stay in Paxos and have a lovely time at the house.
