When bought, the house was a ruin, with no floors and no roof. We have enjoyed restoring this lovely old building into the home and business it is today. Our dream to open a unique and comfortable bed and breakfast has been enhanced by the furniture and fittings we bought back from Africa, Asia and Europe. Between us, we have spent a total of eight years in Africa and have a passion for the continent as a whole, but East Africa in particular - we met each other in Zanzibar, so it has a special place in our hearts! Paxos is our home, but we also love to travel in the winters, gaining fresh perspectives on life through seeing a variety of other cultures all over the world. See our 'winter travels' page for where we have been recently! Our home in Paxos is a reflection of our love for travel and our enjoyment of Greek life and culture.
We are keen gardeners - our garden is a great place to relax and unwind. In addition, we both love to cook - the breakfasts offered are all either home-made or natural products sourced from our travels in europe. We enjoy opening our home to people, we aim to provide a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere with comfortable furnishings. Please feel free to email with any questions or information you may need about our unique bed and breakfast.
Helen & Nick
"Most of all our hosts Helen and Nic just made this holiday perfect. They are so welcoming, friendly and helpful in planning your day and eating out ideas.
This is a special place run by a fabulous couple. We feel lucky to have stayed and highly recommend this experience.
Perfect and Amazing
"Having travelled all over the world Helen and Nick were the best hosts we've had so far. They have the perfect little hideaway and spoil you rotten without you even noticing until the holiday is over."
"Zakspitaki is the most peaceful place, quiet & pretty. Helen & Nicks hospitality is warm & generous. Helen's breakfasts amazing as ever & the chance to make lunch with tin foil provided is useful & novel. Her knowledge of Paxos & willingness to guide us with walks & beaches is so helpful too. We found new & beautiful places even on a third visit thanks to her."
We love to make your holiday special.
