The team at GIC The Villa Collection travel extensively visiting hundreds of properties and only selecting those which ‘tick the right boxes’,  so we were thrilled to receive some lovely feedback from our guests Alison and Peter Clewes during their stay at Villa Somnium in Loggos, Paxos.

This delightful villa is perched in the olive groves with glorious views across to mainland Greece and just a few metres back from the idyllic Marmari beach. From Alison and Peter’s comments below it appears that all the right boxes were well and truly ‘ticked’….

 

What a fantastic villa this is. It has exceeded all of our expectations, however it is exactly as GIC described it on their website, a credit to them, no embellishments in their text!!

The furniture, linens, towels, kitchenware, glasses – just everything is to a very high standard/quality and really feels like a home from home. The views are to die for, this villa has been built with the magnificent views of the sea in mind, even from the kitchen sink……!!  ( but who needs that when there’s a dishwasher) washing machine, oven, hob -all great appliances and standard sizes too and all used, unusually for us, but there has been some bad weather so we took advantage of the villas’ amenities.

There’s also a good stock of books left behind by other guests which we found useful when we’d finished ours, so have added them to the library too!! Hot water is plentiful and pressure is good. Towels and linen are changed Monday’s and Thursday’s, the owner comes along every other day, late afternoon, to clean the pool. Pool towels are also provided, which was a great bonus.

It is a really quiet and private villa, waking up only to the sounds of the ocean and the cockerels, but is within minutes to Marmari beach below, through the olive groves, and about a 10 minute very pleasant walk down into Loggos harbour for dinner on an evening, maybe 15 on the way back up due to the hill and the retsina!!!

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this villa or GIC, it was our first experience with them and so far has gone smoothly, very efficient transfers from Corfu airport to Paxos.

The hire car provided by GIC has been more than adequate and instructions to get to the villa really made us laugh, but were so accurate, we couldn’t have gone wrong!!
