Frequently Asked Questions
Whilst planning your stay in Paxos, there may be a number of different questions on your mind. Take a look below at our frequently asked questions. If you can’t find the answer you are looking for, a member of our dedicated team will be happy to assist you.
Will my property be quiet?
Paxos is a peaceful and tranquil fishing village away from the main tourist areas. There no officially licensed discos or nightclubs in Lakka and Loggos. The local tavernas and bars often play music to encourage enjoyment of visitors and locals on the hot summer nights. Whilst most of our properties are not affected by this, some villas located near the villages may experience some noise in the peak season. We will endeavor to provide you with the best information.
Do I need to bring plug adapters?
Greek wiring is slightly different and more primitive than in most other parts of Europe. We also recommend that you bring an adapter for any electrical appliances that you are bringing.
Water on the island is a precious commodity and is supplied by rainwater from the two reservoirs and desalination plants. Water can also be imported by tender from Corfu when it is needed. Because of this, we ask that we use water supplies sparingly in accordance with local guidelines, to help preserve the supply for the rest of the island. Furthermore, none of our houses are fitted with washing machines or dishwashers. Not many properties have baths, therefore showers are much more common.
Can I drink the water?
The public drinking water in Greece is safe to drink, although the quality of the tap water on Paxos may not be what you are used to and we recommend you drink bottled water which can be bought everywhere very cheaply.
Do the apartments have air conditioning?
Many of our houses have air conditioning installed. Details are given on each property’s description. Where houses do not have air conditioning, an electric fan will be available in each bedroom.
What is the weather like?
Generally, the best time to visit Paxos during May and late September where the weather is very warm and bright in the day with a cooler temperature in the evening. Temperatures reach a peak of around 31 degrees during July and August. Take a look at our temperature guide to help you decide when best to visit.
Insects and wildlife
We encourage all visitors to take precautions to ensure unwanted guests do not intrude upon your holiday. Please ensure that you do not leave unattended food in open spaces to ensure pests are not attracted into your living space. If you do experience any problems, our local office have effective ways of removing the problem.
Can I have an extra bed in my villa?
Please feel free to ask us about moving extra beds into our Villas. If we are able to accommodate your needs, we will be happy to oblige. Furthermore, charge a discounted rate for any extra extra person added to your package. Please also note that extra beds will always be Z beds.
