Paxoi Island

Neptune, the god of the sea was in search of a beautiful and peaceful island, away from people and other gods and in the preamble to live there with his beloved Amphitrite.

South of Corfu with his trident rang loud and formed Paxos. But he lost his trident which he found the inhabitants later, when the first settlement was formed and used by it as their emblem.

Idyllic and unspoilt island of Paxos looks like a little piece of heaven that fell to earth. The endless groves live harmoniously surrounded by turquoise waters.
Churches, monasteries, archaeological museums, museum of olive, picturesque streets, the harbor, are some elements that give color to that particular island.
Lush countryside scattered with picturesque villages, to sites with great historical and mythological interest, Paxos is the perfect place to sync with the relaxed pace and the good will of the people.
