Home description and location
Early 19th century olive mill fully reconverted into a 55 sq.m. self-catered stone-built cottage, that sleeps 2-4 persons. It is set in a tranquil and secluded 500-year old olive grove of 2 acres in the island of Paxos (Ionian Sea-Greece). Situated near the village of Fontana (Platanos), 4 km. from the main port of Gaios, 3 km. from Loggos and 700 m. from the nearest beach. Plenty of hiking trails nearby and all over the island.
The cottage consists of one double room, a separate spacious bathroom and a large, atmospheric sitting area that includes two built bunk beds, a dining area and a fully equipped kitchen. The thick stone walls and the ceiling fans ensure a comfortable temperature in hot days.
Outdoors, there are two terraced courtyards, one of which is covered with a wooden pergola, with an open air cook oven and a BBQ, a dining table with chairs, sun-beds and a hammock.
There is also a separate utility room with a washing machine and an ironing board. Water supply comes from the adjacent recently refurbished pre-industrial cistern that collects the rain water.
There is plenty of parking space within the private olive grove. Please note that it is advisable to bring over or hire locally a car or a motorbike for easier access to the premises.
Maid service is provided every other day, whilst linen change is every 4 days.
