Nice house a bit outside of lovely little harbour village Gaios (a bicycle or scooter is helpful to travel on the island). Charis is a very nice host with good tips about the island and is always helpful. We had a great time there! At the moment the kitchen is not very well equipped for making diner, for breakfast it's fine.
We spent 4 nights at the beautiful M House in Gaios. Just a short distance from Gaios center, the room is very comfortable and airy. There is a lovely terrace where we had our breakfast. Charis was very quick to respond to our questions and shared good tips about the island. We'll definitely come back again soon!
What can I say? This place is amazing!!! We would happily move in! It's beautifully quiet, with huge stone walls that keep it cool even on the hottest days. The patio is a lovely space to have breakfast and the whole place was spotlessly clean. We would come back in a heartbeat. There is a fantastic restaurant just down the road and gaios is walkable in twenty mins. To make the best of the island it would be useful to have a car from this location. Communication was helpful and accurate, so thank you Charis!!
We loved EVERYTHING about Charis' place!!! The house is very comfortable. It is roomy and light, with a lovely distant ocean view from the top floor. It has a delightful feel about it. Being on the hill above Gaios, it catches the breezes, so on cooler nights we slept with the windows opened - all the windows are fitted with excellent screens, that you have the option of removing or keeping. It also has an air-conditioner and ceiling fan, so if it gets warmer, you can cool down. The armchairs upstairs are incredibly comfortable, and we enjoyed a number of hours in them, with the juliet balcony doors open, reading and enjoying the breezes and views. The downstairs dining table and divans were great to have, but we used the outdoor table and chairs most. We appreciated all the helpful things in the house, including having a drying rack. Also, everything was scrupulously clean. The location of the house is wonderful: it has the feel of being in a rural village, but only 5 minutes drive from the centre of Gaios. We walked several times to Gaios, and it took us 20-30 minutes, depending on which way we went (there are two alternatives, one a more back road). From the house there are many lovely walks - more details on that later. First, I want to emphasize what an incredible host Charis is. Before we arrived, he was amazingly helpful, sending us invaluable information about how to arrange the boat tickets from Corfu and get a rental car. He organized a taxi to collect us from the ferry, and helped us with the taxi on the way back. Arranging to check in was seamless, and when we arrived, Charis went way beyond anything we could have hoped for to help show us around, help us find the walking paths in the area, let us know about restaurants that might suit us (we are a vegetarian/pescatarian couple), beaches we would like, and so on. We took his advice on everything, and it was perfect!!! We can't recommend Charis' place highly enough, especially to those who want to get the authentic feeling for a place, while having a home-away-from-home. Now to the walking. We walked one day to Mongonisi island, doing a loop up to Gaios and then back to the house - that is probably about a 2 hour round trip in walking time, but we stopped for coffees, swims, photographs, so it took us half a day! On another day we walked on absolutely delightful paths to the gorgeous Trypitos Arch, and then back to the windmill ruins near Tranakatika, cutting across to Mouzmouli viewpoint, and back to the house (only 10 minutes away). This was probably only about 90 minutes walking time, or even less, but again, lots of stopping for pictures! On another evening we walked from the house to the headland south of Galazio beach, which had incredible coast views. There were others we could have done...
Charis has been a fantastic host, very prompt to respond and giving us lots of tips and good recommendation for our stay. The M house is located in a very quiet area among olive trees but not far from Gaios. The house is wider than expected and well equipped. Even if it was very hot outside, we got fresh air inside thanks to the air conditioning. We will come back for sure!
we spent 6 beautiful days on the marvellous island of Paxos. Charis was a fantastic host and though he could not welcome us , he sent his very nice family to open the house with us ang give us good advice on where to travel on the island! The house was perfect for us and our two kids. Thank you so much for the air conditionning in the house!
