Accommodation

This will be in villas with private swimming pools no more than a 20-minute walk from Loggos, one of the three main villages on Paxos. We shall be using villas such as Villas Poseidon and Amphitrite, Villa Stelios and Villa Maria. We shall be running all the villas that we use as one unit and participants will have the use of the external facilities at all villas. 

Single supplements

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.

We will, as far as possible, allocate what we consider to be the best rooms to early bookers but we need to reserve twin rooms, rather than doubles, for sharers, unless a double has been specifically requested.

Meals

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 provisions which we will replenish mid-week. There will be pre-dinner drinks at your villa on Monday and Sunday, followed by dinner (with local wine) in a taverna selected by the holiday leader. There will also be a meze-style lunch on one day of the holiday to be selected by the holiday leader.

Transfers

Transfers from Corfu airport to your accommodation on Paxos are included in the cost of all courses and you will be met on arrival at Corfu airport. All transfers will be by shared taxis/minibus and the scheduled hydrofoil/boat service, unless stated otherwise on your Booking Confirmation and Confirmation Invoice. 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.

Flight timings

The cost of travel to and from Greece is not included in the cost of the course and we do not arrange this. If you are travelling via Corfu, you should choose a flight that lands by 13.00 at the 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 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. 

Holiday insurance

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 Writing courses.  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.

We will ask you for details of your insurance policy before you travel to Greece and before you are allowed to take part in any of our courses or activities.

For Further Information: Please contact us

To Book: Please read our Booking Conditions and the Important Information section of this website, and then complete and submit an On-Line Booking Form. Our writing courses are open to people of all ages and abilities aged 18 or over.  However, Paxos is a relatively hilly island and we therefore do not feel that it is suitable for anyone with walking difficulties.
