Paxos is covered by countless, 500 year-old olive groves, as well as cypress trees and rich vegetation, whilst Antipaxos is one large vineyard. The eastern coastlines of the island are smooth, while the west coasts are bold and abrupt with remarkable natural formations: caves, arches, dome-shaped forms, sheer cliffs etc. The capital of Paxos is Gaios, a picturesque village build around a port which is protected by the two small islands of Agios Nikolaos and Panagia. At the northern tip of the island sits beautiful Lakka, whilst on the east coast nestles the picturesque village of Loggos. Apart from the endless array of charming beaches and hiking trails, other attractions include the cliffs and the caves on the wild, western coast, the numerous churches scattered around the island (the most prominent being the Church of Ypapanti near Lakka, Agioi Apostoloi in Gaios and the ruins of Agia Marina, an early Christian church in Porto Ozias), the old oil-mills and water cisterns, the Venetian castle of Agios Nikolaos and the monastery of Panagia that celebrates on August 15th. Today, Paxos has a permanent population of approximately 2,500 inhabitants, but during the summer months the island hosts thousands of visitors, day trippers and yachts.

The cottage is located just off the little village of Fontana (Platanos), 4 km from the port of Gaios. It can be accessed either by taxi, or by hired or private car. The closest beaches are Alati and Kipiadis, 15-20 mins. by foot or 700 m. from the house.
