Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Paxos, tiny and incredibly beautiful, has always attracted yachtsmen and Lakka has always been a very special port of call, with its fine sheltered bay and exquisite setting. Green hills drop down to a bay where the water is of an intoxicating shade of turquoise, fringed with white beaches.
Alexander has its own large and very attractive swimming pool, and beautiful pool terrace with a corner viewpoint that will prove hard to get up and walk away from! Quiet beaches are just a short walk away.

The beach below the villa, with an excellent taverna, is accessed via a small coastal path. (The path down is approximately 180 metres and takes less than 5 mins to walk.) The beach is fine sand and white shingle, but once you are in the sea there is soft sand underfoot. There is also a rocky cove at the foot of the cliff behind the villa, reached by a 300 metre goat track.View from beach, with taverna, towards Villa Alexander.

The Ionian Islands region
Paxos is the smallest of the Ionian Islands, lying just 11 km from the southernmost tip of Corfu. Many visitors return year after year to Paxos to experience the intimacy of this peaceful haven, the genuine friendliness of the local Paxiots, and the captivating scenery. Paxos is covered in many olive groves intersected by dry-stone walls and paths, that often lead to a derelict villa or abandoned stone olive press! The gnarled and twisted olive trees, some of them hundreds of years old, shelter numerous species of wild flowers at their roots, while here and there, small vineyards flourish. This serene and unspoiled landscape is what makes a holiday to the island of Paxos truly memorable.
Faros Lakka: is the headland just opposite the bay of Lakka. On top of the headland is the Victorian lighthouse (Faros in Greek means lighthouse.) From the water-front of Lakka there is a short coastal footpath which leads you to the Faros headland.
Lakka lies in the north of Paxos at the head of a long natural inlet of the most startling shade of turquoise - reminiscent of a Caribbean bay. It is a perfect harbour and is filled with a fascinating array of yachts in summer. The village itself is small and focused almost entirely on its harbour-front, with a selection of useful shops and several good restaurants and bars, including a very good Italian restaurant. The shores of the bay are fringed with beautiful natural beaches, shaded by trees, and it is possible to walk to other, more unfrequented, beaches on the other side of the headlands.
