“Loved It”
Reviewed 26 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I really liked this villa. It is rustic in places but clean, charming and private. There are three bedrooms, a kitchen, two reception rooms, and, more importantly, two patios – and a bbq for hazy evenings eating, drinking wine and playing cards. There were five of us but it didn't feel cramped.

The lady who runs it was lovely, always had a smile on her face. I know if we’d had a problem with anything she’d have moved mountains to help. And then there is Olive the cat. She turned up each morning and evening, meowing on the step and rubbing against our legs. She was so thin and gobbled up everything we gave her, so if you go stay please feed her!

The location is about a five minute walk outside Lakka and another two minutes or so to a beach. Lakka itself is rammed with nice restaurants and places to rent boats, buy food etc, and the locals are so friendly. The sea is as clear as cut glass and just breathtaking. At the end of the week we all decided on something: we’re coming back here for sure.

The only thing missing was a pool. But the sea is only 5 mins away, so it's no biggie.

“lovely old house in olive groves”
Reviewed 28 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed at Villa Christina for two weeks in May 2013....well it was our honeymoon really, we are getting married when we get back!
Everything was just right for us, the owners are a friendly Greek family who have owned the house for a long time. It has been sympathetically renovated, keeping many of the old features. There are two pleasant terraces, so you can decide if you want sun or shade. It sits on the outskirts of the village of Lakka, up the hill and in the olive groves, as we walked back at night we watched fireflies hovering in the trees. In the morning we strolled into the village to get fresh bread and croissants for breakfast. Some evenings we ate at the local tavernas and others we stayed at the house and had a barbeque.
The family were very helpful in every way, even meeting us in Corfu and taking us to the ferry. The house is clean and comfortable and very very peaceful. Lakka is a great little place with friendly locals also if you like walking there are manny walks you can do from the house. If we come to paxos again we will definitely stay in villa Christina!! By the way ...if you stay there please feed the cat!! We called her `Olive`...she is very thin and hungry!
