Monolitharo Paxos

Traditional accommodation in Paxos island

Monolitharo Cottage

Home description and location

Early 19th century oil mill fully reconverted into a 55 sq.m. self-catered stone-built cottage, that sleeps 2-4 adults (or children over 12). It is hidden deep in a tranquil and secluded 500-year old olive grove of 2 acres in the island of Paxos (Ionian Sea-Greece) . Perfect hide away, yet ideally located close to beaches, hiking trails, shopping, eating and other attractions. 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 beaches.

The Cottage

The cottage consists of one double room, a separate spacious bathroom and a large,  atmospheric sitting area that includes two built beds, a dining area, a fully equipped kitchen and wi-fi. The thick stone walls and the ceiling fans ensure a comfortable temperature in the summer, but for those really hot days, the house is also equipped with two very effective air-condition units.

Outdoors, there are four terraced courtyards (two covered with a pergola), 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.
