About Luca & Christine-Aurore
I came to Paxos for the first time in 1978, with my parents for a holiday, I was 8 at the time. My parents fell in love with the island and decided to buy and restore an old house. Ever since 1978 I’ve been coming to Paxos every year, for unforgettable holidays, first as a young kid, then as a single adult, and eventually as a young married couple with my wife Christine-Aurore.
Luca & Christine-Aurore purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Luca & Christine-Aurore chose Paxos
The beauty of Paxos is that despite the years have gone by, it has not lost its authentic spirit and sheer natural beauty, maintaining its position of best kept secret island of the Mediterranean. As our family grew with the arrival of our 3 daughters, Christine-Aurore and I decided to buy a house that would not only be the summer house of our family, but also the centre of gravity were we could invite our best friends and loved ones to spend amazing holidays together on this beautiful island. And so in 2008 we decided to buy Panos House. We hope you will enjoy our house as much as we love it : for its comfort and authenticity, its beautiful scenery, its welcoming pool or for the privacy and quietness among the olive trees whilst being only few minutes away from the picturesque little fishing harbour of Loggos with its typical tavernas and cafés.

What makes this Villa unique
What we love about our house is that all the bedrooms and lounge area are overlooking the swimming pool; waking up in the morning, opening the door-windows and jumping straight into the water is simply priceless! And the marble table by the pool for long morning breakfasts or evening barbecues watching the Milky Way and the incredible spectacle of millions of stars is what life should always be about, right ?!

Lovely villa in a fantastic location
The villa was perfect for a week's stay on the island. Its location is ideal, being close to the three villages of Loggos, Gaios and Lacca. The sea views are lovely, the kitchen/living room area is spacious and the outdoor area was perfect for drinks and supper in the evenings. There is a sweet little restaurant at the bottom of the drive which you can walk to for a delicious meal! Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in Panos House.

Everything was as good as promised, stunning villa, location and pool. Meet and greet, communication and taxis very well done. Lovely couple Luca and Sam.
Lovely house with great pool on a beautiful island
Panos House is very spacious with well equipped bedrooms and great living areas both outside and in. The pool is well looked after with a man coming to keep it clean as does a maid to water the garden and check everything is clean.
Paxos is a beautiful island with a good choices of beaches and restaurants as well as a couple of sunset bars.
I would thoroughly recommend Panos House.
Many thanks for your kind words we are so happy you enjoyed the stay in Panos House !! You were great guests ! We hope to welcome you again.
Simple house, nicely located in olive grove
Panos house is located in an olive grove below a small road (dead-end for vehicles) in the hamlet of Zernatika. The main house has two bedrooms and one bathroom. The two other bedrooms are only accessible from the terrace. In our view, its best features are the dinner/lounging area under a big olive tree (illuminated in the evening – we had nice dinners there), the well-maintained pool and the living room with its beautiful lime-stone wall. The view from the terrace is – by Paxos standards – not spectacular, but nice. The presence of (rather slow) mobile Wifi (to be paid separately in Gaios) and a dishwasher was a nice surprise, but in other respects we found that the facilities and services offered – given the price of the villa – leave room for improvement. As indicated by a previous reviewer the kitchen is simple (e.g., the “coffee maker” mentioned on the website is a percolator) and offers very little room for your groceries. The bathroom (we got access to only one) is the typical Greek bathroom with shower-without-curtain corner and items like an ironing board, hair dryer, safe and wash tub are absent (so we did our laundry in the sink). Also absent were beach towels - although promised on the website at the time of booking - and the rather common and convenient “extra’s” in Greek holiday villas of this price range (we visited 18) like free dishwasher tablets, hand soap in the bathroom and kitchen and toilet paper. If you (like all previous reviewers) have no problem in accepting these little inconveniences you can have a pleasant time in Panos house. Do not forget to visit the nearby church and churchyard of Zernatika and the surprising Ipapanti church with beautiful bell tower on the nearby west coast.
We thank you for your comments regards the property & are glad you had a nice stay despite a few minor issues/queries which we are sorry for. Our house manager couldn't have spoken more highly of you & your wife.
The property has an Italian style cafetiere/perculator as opposed to an electric coffee maker, we are Belgian/Italian so that reflects the use of a cafetiere instead of an electric American filter coffee style machine.
Due to the village location we are unable to have a land line, so we have tried to assist clients' 21st century needs and installed a pay as you go wifi dongle which up until now has appeared adequate, we're sorry if it didn't meet your expectations but in the absence of an available land line its the next best thing we can do.
The property does have an ironing board & wash tub but it transpires that they were locked in the additional annexe which you didn't rent as there were only 2 of you so we are very sorry for this oversight & we have reviewed this with the housekeeper & she has moved it into the main house.
We could have rectified this for you immediately had you mentioned it our house manager who I believe you spoke to on arrival regards the beach towel query, which we have now updated on the Home Away advert (no beach towels at the property, but they can be bought very reasonably in any of the villages)
We have also noted & totally agree with your comments about dishwasher tablets, toilet & kitchen roll for the duration of the stay & again have reviewed this with our housekeeper.
Thank you for your constructive feedback & we hope to see you in Paxos again soon
Panos House is the perfect holiday let if you want peace and quiet. The absolute silence we experienced in May was wonderful and just what we needed.
The living room is spacious and comfortable, the bedrooms light and have enough space for holiday clothing, the kitchen is adequate. We were surprised there was no 'welcome pack' as this is the norm with holiday lets these days. However the pool and outdoor space is lovely with shade and sunny spots for all. There were 4 of us on this holiday and the villa felt spacious. I don't know how it feel for 8 people.
You definitely need a car for this property unless you are avid walkers . The bars, restaurants and shops of Logos are nearby and the shops deliver food purchases free of charge.
All In all we had a brilliant week at Panos House, and would return for another relaxing week.
Super holiday home in peaceful surroundings
Lovely 2 weeks in this comfortable home. Main house has 2 bedrooms and good bathroom with open plan living /kitchen and there are 2 further en suite bedrooms with individual entrance doors from pool area. Blissful much needed air con in bedrooms. We ate out or bbq'd - kitchen might be updated if you wanted to cook more inside but this wasn't a concern for us. Lovely views from terrace and the seating area was fabulous for daytime shade and evening gathering. Stuart, the manager, was terrific and there to help with anything and cleaning/bed changing arranged to suit us as we had visitors arriving at different times. House situated up a quiet lane off main road so beautifully quiet and peaceful in the olive groves. We could walk to lovely Kipiadi beach in 25 mins (bit longer on return!). Pratigos taverna at the bottom of the lane had fantastic food and views, Loggos longer walk or easy drive. Wonderful family and friends holiday.
Many thanks for your comments. Really happy you had a good time in our house and look forward to welcoming you again.
Panos House is situated in the sleepy hamlet of Zernatika, just 2mins drive from the pretty fishing village of Loggos.
Excellent traditional taverna within 5mins walk with possibly the best views from any taverna on Paxos.
