It's easy to find superlatives to describe this diamond but the reality is genuinely overwhelming. Such impeccable accomodation, wonderful food and warm hospitality made our first trip to Paxos a delight. Pam, Keith and Adam have obviously worked so hard to achieve their dream and have triumphed with style !

We stayed at the Olive Press for 6 days at the end of September, followed by another 8 days at the VR. We had an amazing time and have nothing but praise. The Olive Press is beautiful and has a relaxing, restful feel about it. When we first saw the Retreat, we couldn't quite believe how spectacular the outside space...

Pam and Keith are quite clear about the rule and any infractions are dealt with emphatically. The rule - relax, you are on holidays. As soon as you arrive it is clear this is designed to be an island of calm and style on a calm and stylish island. Your job is just to relax and enjoy it. If you...

Pam, Keith & Adam have clearly worked hard to create this idyllic retreat on the lovely island of paxos. The attention to detail is amazing and there are so many personal touches that make you feel at home & relaxed from minute one. It was my birthday during my stay, so the complimentary bottle of fizz went down a treat...

The two of us stayed in the vellianitatika retreat for 3 nights at the end of a 2 week trip in Greece. This was undoubtedly the best place we stayed. We were picked up by Keith in his legendary jeep and driven up the hill to what was a beautiful and picturesque home. From the moment we arrived we didn't...

Vellianitatika Retreat was recommended to us by family that had stayed there on honeymoon for 2 weeks the previous year; they raved about The Olive Press (they'd stayed there the first week), Vellianitatika Retreat (they'd stayed there for the second week) and Adam, Keith and Pam (the owner / hosts) .... As soon as I arrived I could see why....

My husband and I have been feeling guilty over the last year, as we had an amazing stay at the Velliantatika retreat and have only just got round to writing the review!
