There are two taverns, one bakery and a mini market in the village near-by (Fontana). The closest beaches are 700 m. and 1 km. from the house. Plenty of hiking trails nearby and all over the island.

Paxos is a cluster of small islands that also includes, apart from the main island (with a total surface of 19 sq. km.), Antipaxos (3 sq. km.), Daskalia, Kaltsonissi, Mongonissi, Agios Nikolaos and Panagia. Paxos is located in the North Ionian Sea, 7 miles from the south coast of the island of Corfu and 10 miles from the coast of mainland Greece (Epirus). It is easily accessible by hydrofoil, ferry-boat, cruise boat, and sea-taxis.
Paxos is covered by countless, over 500 year-old olive groves, as well as cypress trees and rich vegetation, whilst Antipaxos is one large vineyard. The eastern coastlines of the island are smooth, while the west coasts are bold and abrupt with remarkable natural formations: caves, arches, dome-shaped forms, sheer cliffs etc. The capital of Paxos is Gaios, a picturesque village build around a port which is protected by the two small islands of Agios Nikolaos and Panagia. At the northern tip of the island sits beautiful Lakka, whilst on the east coast nestles the picturesque village of Loggos. Apart from the endless array of charming beaches and hiking trails, other attractions include the cliffs and the caves on the wild, western coast, the numerous churches scattered around the island (the most prominent being the Church of Ypapanti near Lakka, Agioi Apostoloi in Gaios and the ruins of Agia Marina, an early Christian church in Porto Ozias), the old oil-mills and water cisterns, the Venetian castle of Agios Nikolaos and the monastery of Panagia that celebrates on August 15th. Today, Paxos has a permanent population of approximately 2,500 inhabitants, but during the summer months the island hosts thousands of visitors, day trippers and yachts.
