Frequently Asked Questions
The time has arrived when you start planning your stay in Paxos,
but 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 team will be happy to assist you.
Will my property be quiet?
Paxos is a very peaceful and tranquil island away from all the main
tourist attractions elsewhere in Greece.
There no officially licensed discos or nightclubs in either 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 properties located near the villages may experience some noise in
the peak season. We will endeavor to provide you with the best information.
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.
Can I have an extra bed in my villa?
Please feel free to ask us about moving extra beds into our properties.
If we are able to accommodate your needs, we will be happy to oblige.
Furthermore, a charge of a discounted rate will be added to your bill,
for any extra extra person added to your package.
Do I need to bring plug adapters?
Greek wiring and plugs are the same as in most other parts of Europe.
Nevertheless, if you are visiting the island from either the United Kingdom
or the U.S.A. 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 mainly by rainwater
and from the two reservoirs and their desalination plants.
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, almost 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?
Tap water on Paxos is not safe to drink, although the quality of the tap water on Paxos may
be used for showers, cleaning your teeth etc so we strongly recommend you drink bottled
water which can be bought everywhere very cheaply.
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.
Furthermore, due to many mosquitoes it is advisable to buy repellents from the local chemist
as well as using plug-in repellent tablets from the local shops.
What is the weather like?
Generally, the best time to visit Paxos is during May and late October where the weather is
very warm and bright in the day with a cooler temperature in the evening.
Temperatures reach a peak of around 30 C to 35 C degrees during July and August.
