Meliti traditional stone villa is located in the picturesque village of Fontana in Paxos island. The villa overlooks the Ionian Sea and the Greek mainland. The villa yet quite modern in facilities, was build with the famous Paxos stone with respect to traditional architecture and style. It is surrounded by a big garden with swimming pool and wide terrace, which offer privacy and relaxation throughout the day and night. One of the advantages of the house is that visitors can enjoy almost absolute privacy in the house as it is situated in the middle of olive grooves, and at the same time they can walk to the village of Fontana in two minutes time, where one can find mini market, tavernas and bar. The Villa is in two levels. The villa is very sunny, decorated in country style. The villa is kids and pets friendly.
Ioanna is the notary public of the island as well as the keeper of the Land Registry of the island. She came from Corfu 20 years ago and fell in love with the island, so when she eventually decided to built this house she tried to to find harmony between tradition and modern interior design. Ioanna together with her nephew Akis look after the villa and welcome the guests. For many years Ioanna has been an active member of the Cultural Association of Paxos. She now participates in the Philharmonic Band of the Paxos Community. She loves music and travelling.
Because of the energy it emanates and for the surrounding landscape. The feeling of calmness and relaxation.
The total privacy and tranquillity and yet so close to the village.
The property is set in a perfect location. The owner is friendly and more than helpful. We recommend this property for its layout, well kept grounds, facilities and cleanliness. A perfect villa on a beautiful, although small, Island. A fantastic way to chill out.
Ioanna , Akis & Arco the dog made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. The villa built to a very high standard and the garden and pool areas are a delight, with lots of attractive seating and shade. We love Paxos and this location is ideal for exploring the rest of the island by car although you can walk to the restaurant in the villge in a couple of minutes. Ioanna has created a fabulous holiday home full of personal touches including original artwork .
We will be back.again.

We had never booked before with Owners' Direct, and being naturally inclined to pessimism, I arrived at Villa Meliti armed with bin-liners, detox wipes, spare towels and a readiness to possibly be disappointed. We had, after all, head some gruesome scare stories about booking directly with owners. That said, our dealings with Ioanna, the charming and efficient owner, has been excellent, so perhaps I needn't worry...
Arriving at Villa Meliti, every anxiety I had, melted away. Ioanna and her nephew Akis welcomed us like old friends, collecting us from the port and being patient and kind as we wearily blinked under the un-used-to sunshine. Meliti is a home-away-from-home, decoarated with style and flair (and certainly appealing to more artistic temperaments) and posessing much that sterile holiday lets do not: an ecclectic CD library; multi-lingual book collection and decorated with original art and 'objets' which make it feel so special. The space is generous - the outside space alone houses a day-bed, perfect plunge pool, hammock, various sitting areas and outdoor kitchen, all lushly planted and situated amongst the olive trees. Maid service is frequent, discreet and thoughtful, and even a welcome pack awaited us on arrival.
The house is a two-minute walk from the oldest - and in our opinion, the best - taverna on Paxos, plus a bakery, market and walks across the island along ancient footpaths in shaded olive paths leading away from the house in every direction. This is also a nature-lovers' paradise and the garden alone teems with flowers, butterflies, bees and bird-life.
The situation, house, garden, host, location and ambience were perfect for us, and we have determined to return. In fact, we should probably have suggested that the Villa is dreadful. That way, we could keep this hidden gem of a property all to ourselves...
We had had the most amazing week away at Ioanna's beautiful house. Ioanna was a great host and stayed in touch throughout the whole booking process. She even booked our rental car and boat transfers from Corfu and these turned out cheaper than I found anywhere else.
It was a beautiful house, perfect for two couples or family with kids or just a couple, the downstairs is completely self contained and almost like an annex so perfect if you want some separate space.
There was a lovely bottle of wine and lots of other Greek food in the house too.
We both absolutely love Paxos and will be returning next year and would certainly stay here again if we could.
The best host and amazing house, thankyou Ioanna.

Accueil excellent, hôtesse charmante, maison toute mignonne, île relaxante, criques et plages tranquilles, nous y avons passé une excellente semaine et en gardons de merveilleux souvenirs.
Inconvenient avec des petits enfants, les chambres ne sont pas communicantes mais divant lit dans le salon. Si non, rien à redire : propreté impeccable, les draps sont changés tous les 3 jours et la femme de ménage passé également tous les 3 jours. Adresse que nous recommandons vivement !
