“Beautiful apartments on a beautiful island.”
Reviewed 12 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed at Villa Casa Bianca purple apartment for a week, with some of our friends in another one of the apartments (orange I think). Fotis, the owner, met us at the harbour and also gave us a lift back on our way home, which was very kind as it was early morning.
The house is beautiful and our apartment was spotlessly clean. The purple apartment is smaller than the orange one below it, but you get the large veranda which is awesome and gives an amazing view out to sea. The shared pool area is really nice and we spent several days just hanging out there because it is so lovely. There is a BBQ and plenty of table and chairs etc. We were in Paxos for a wedding and had friends staying in several different hotels and apartments over the island. Everybody who visited us remarked on how nice Casa Bianca was, which i think says a lot.

Casa Bianca is on a hill about 10 mins walk from Gaios where there are supermarkets, bars and several nice restaurants. The harbour area is lovely, and we walked down every day for a drink or food. Fotis' family own a small bar on the harbour front and they all made us very welcome when we went there.

Overall, I really loved both the apartment and the island. I would recommend for a romantic getaway, a holiday with friends if you rent out more than one of the apartments, and also for families with small kids as it feels very safe and easy to keep an eye on them. It's very quiet and a great place to relax.

My only criticism would be that there are no extra sheets or blankets in the apt. I didn't need one, but as i needed the aircon on to keep cool at night my wife got cold, as women seem to run about 10 degrees colder than men.

One of the best things we did on paxos was hire a motor boat from one of the guys at the harbour and go around the island, and to antipaxos. Highly recommend it as it's a great way to see the island and caves on the western side.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 31 August 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed with our children & grandchildren at Casa Bianca and completely enjoyed the stunning view, gorgeous villa and relaxing atmosphere. Fotis and his family were extremely welcoming, helpful and kind. In fact we all loved it so much that we have booked to go back and stay there again next year! Can't wait to be back in Paxos at Casa Bianca and look forward to seeing the Gounaris family again.

“Perfection at its best!”

Stayed at Casa Bianca july/Aug this year. The house is beautiful with the most stunning views over Gaios and to the ses. Everything was perfect, Fotis and his family are wonderful, their hospitality second to none. Having been to Paxos 18 times, I can honestly say that I have never stayed in such beautiful accomodation before. Well worth a visit. Myseif and our party are hoping to return again next year, I will never tire of this stunning island and now we have found this villa it is even more special.

“Amazing view, very pleasant place to stay. Recommended.”
Reviewed 27 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

It is a 10 minute walk up a steep hill from the town but if you can hack that or rent a car/ moped I would definately highly recommend this beautifully maintained and decorated villa with stunning views onto the Port of Gaios and sea below it.

“Fabulous! friendly, private and stunning views.”
Reviewed 24 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Absolutely loved this place. We stayed at Casa Bianca for the 2nd week of our holidays, as a chill-out after a very lively wedding in Corfu the 1st week.
It gave us just the chill-out we needed.
Fotis and his family were so welcoming and helpful, making sure we had everything we needed. They whole family very friendly and would happily have done anything for us.
The villa is so lovely - clean and spacious with fantastic views and a big balcony, barbecue (though we didn't use this - we were too lazy and just went out to eat) lovely pool and pool area that is private and has everything you need.
We would definitely stay here again if we returned to Paxos and I would recommend it to anyone.
Thank you to Fotis, Ava, Loula, Alex and Alexander the Great! haha
