“Relaxing, quiet spot well located for Gaios by foot or car”
Reviewed 14 March 2014 for a stay in July 2013

We rented the whole villa last Summer for a week with friends, who stayed in the purple apartment, whilst we were in the blue. Lovely, clean and modern facilities, Fotis and his family are friendly and accommodating. Location is good, not far from Gaios Centre and only a 4 euro taxi ride if the heat is too much for the walk back. We are annual visitors to the island never usually staying in the same villa twice as there's so many nice places, but we would happily stay at Casa Bianca again when we have friends with us - we're not one for shared facilities with strangers, but separate apartments with friends/family means you can still have some 'you' time and be socialable around the lovely pool and BBQ area,

“Orange Apartment - Brilliant !”

Did we have a good stay … Yes we did :-))

Our 10 night stay was perfect … great location, very well equipped, regularly cleaned and ample/easy parking.

Directly outside the Orange apartment is a large private patio/garden/sitting area with views stretching out to sea and mainland beyond over local olive tree.

The purpose built BBQ area around the shared pool proved to be a perfect location for al fresco dinning.

Fotis who along side his father Alex and family own and manage the villa perfectly as well as their bar located on the quayside in Gaios. A great place to sit and relax watching the boats moor up, the sun go down with a well earnt holiday drink :-)).

Casa Bianca did it for us, so we will be returning !

“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.

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.
