We shall be
running the villas as one unit so that all
participants will have the use of the external facilities
at all villas. We
will advise you at the time of booking, if it becomes
necessary to arrange additional accommodation, which we
will endeavour to ensure is of a similar standard and in
the same vicinity. If this is not possible, then the
difference in the standard and location will be
reflected in the cost.
Accommodation in a shared twin room is included in the price
and a limited number of twin/double rooms are available
for single occupancy upon payment of a supplement of
£125 per person per week.
Allocation of rooms
We are not able to allocate rooms until we know the
final make-up of the group. It is therefore not
possible to book specific rooms, although you may make
special requests, which we will do our best to meet.
You may, however, state your preference for a double or
twin room if two people are booking together.
will, as far as possible, allocate what we consider to
be the best rooms to early bookers but we will need to
reserve twin rooms, rather than doubles, for sharers,
unless a double has been specifically requested.
Prior to the start of the holiday we will ask you what
you would like for breakfast and we will then provide
you with an initial supply of breakfast provisions, which we will
A meze-style lunch
with local wine is included on Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Dinner with local wine is
included on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and
Sunday. These meals will be taken in local tavernas
which will be selected by the holiday leader.
In addition, there will be welcome and farewell drinks

Dinner in Loggos
Transfers between Corfu Airport and the villas are included. All
transfers will be by shared taxis
and the scheduled hydrofoil/boat service, unless stated
otherwise on your Booking Confirmation and Confirmation
Invoice, or dictated by local circumstances. If the hydrofoil/boat service between Corfu and Paxos is suspended for any reason eg adverse weather
conditions, mechanical failure or industrial action, we
will do our best to arrange alternative transport for
you. Where we are able to do this, it will be subject to
the payment by you of any additional charges incurred by
us. If we are unable to arrange alternative transport,
then we will help you to find accommodation, which again
will be at additional cost to you. It is essential that
your insurance policy includes cover for delayed
departure, missed departure and missed connection.
We can also arrange transfers using the sea
taxi from Corfu
but these will incur an additional charge. Details of
all the transport services that operate between Corfu and Paxos are on the Getting to
Paxos pages of this website.
cost of travel to and from Greece is not included and we
do not arrange this. If you are travelling via Corfu,
you should choose a flight that lands by
13.00 at the very latest in order to be sure of catching the afternoon
hydrofoil/boat service to Paxos. If your flight lands later
than 13.00, then you may have to spend the first night
of your holiday on Corfu at your own expense.
On the return journey, the early morning hydrofoil/boat from Paxos will normally get you back to
Corfu in time to catch flights leaving after 11.00. If
you are at all concerned about getting back to Corfu in
time to catch your return flight to the UK, then you
might like to consider extending your holiday and
spending an additional night in Corfu town. We are
always happy to discuss the options with you.
It is a condition of booking our
holidays/courses/activities that you have comprehensive
travel insurance that includes cover for the
holidays/courses/activities in which you intend to
participate. The cost of insurance is not included in
the cost of the holiday.
If you have already taken out travel insurance, you will
need to check your policy to
ensure that it provides cover for all the holidays/courses/activities in which you will be participating.
If it does not, then you will need to contact your
insurer to arrange additional cover. For holidays to Paxos it is particularly important that your insurance
policy includes cover for delayed departure, missed
departure and missed connections, as
transport links with Corfu can sometimes be disrupted.
For Further Information:
Please read our
pages, and then complete and submit an
Booking Form. Our painting holidays are open to anyone aged 18 or over. However,
Paxos is a relatively hilly island and we therefore
do not feel that they are suitable for anyone with walking
