This is the most wonderful holiday destination. Pam and Keith are genuinely two of the most fantastic hosts you could ever hope to meet. The house is beautiful, thanks to Pam's wonderful eye and talents and neither of them could be more helpful or attentive. The attention to detail is amazing and they always go the extra mile.. nothing is...

Well what can I say. The only holiday we have been on where we miss the hosts as much as the place! A truly special home that is so well thought out and designed with such perfection and style- a real labour of life! From the moment Keith picked us up in his jeep to the final evening with prosecco...

We booked for 6 nights and stayed for 8 and would happily have stayed another 8 if we could. Pam and Keith have created such a beautiful piece of paradise here, it's hard to know where to look first.

In May we returned to this little slice of heaven. If you're looking for a place to relax and be pampered, this is the place to go. I can honestly say that it's my favourite place to be. The accommodation is beautiful and decorated to a really high standard. You also get little extras like fresh flowers in your room,...

We had such a lovely stay in September it really is a beautiful place and of course a stunning island! Weather not on our side entirely, we still had a few days of sun but who cares when you are staying somewhere so stunning! We totally recommend staying here if visiting Paxos but we don't really need to just look...

Our 5th year now with Pam and Keith and every year it just gets better. This small boutique family run B&B is a very precious find and comes highly recommended. The family's standards are very high in terms of style, service, food preparation and presentation, comfort, decor, cleanliness, the list is endless ......
