Both houses are independently tucked away in the interior of Antipaxos, in the center of the old village but just a short distance from any of the sandy beaches. Phoenica is one of the oldest houses on the island and we have now added modern comforts to the original, simple home. The properties each enjoy amazing sea views, gardens of mulberry, almond and lemon trees, each with their own shaded terrace &/or sitting area. Private swimming pools are on hand if the 15 mins walk down to one of Anti Paxos's 'Caribbean like' beaches is just too much for you. Those in the know, will know that AntiPaxos is virtually undiscovered & what better to watch the last Caiques departing at 17:30 taking wannabe Robinson Crusoe's back to Paxos, all the time knowing that this place is now all yours to share with just a few locals until 10am the following day when the caiques return. Excellent tavernas serve traditional fare daily including fresh fish on the stunning beaches of Vrika & Voutoumi.

Two sisters, Faye and Nancia born and raised in Gaios decided to build the two independent villas on family land. The holiday maker spending time in one of our villas will probably get to meet with Faye, who personally takes care of the pools and garden and supervises all services. She speaks several languages and is very much involved with the cultural life of the island. She is also a Paxos festival trust board member. Nancia is a lawyer and proud mum of the handsomest little boy on Paxos!
FAYE purchased this cottage in 1949
Villa Phoenica was built probably 300 years ago & renovated 3 years ago. Villa Violetta was built 25 years ago by our father.
Being the first opportunity for Owners Direct clients to stay in Anti Paxos these are currently a unique chance to actually be part of Anti Paxos life for your stay, to wake up on the island & sample its beauty & isolation before anyone comes to the beaches for the day. At night a recent client said that he actually thought "he'd gone deaf" as it was so silent & peaceful. Less than 30 people live on Anti Paxos full time, so enjoy this little piece of virtually undiscovered heaven whilst you can.
