Concierge.com's insider take:
The best way to experience Paxos would be to rent a tiny villa nestled among some of the island's 300,000 olive trees (for info about villa rentals, contact Ileana Von Hirsch at the London-based Five Star Greece rental agency: 44-20-8422-4885; firstname.lastname@example.org; fivestargreece.com). But booking one of the 27 apartments at this family-owned hotel (one of only two on the island) is the second-best option. The no-nonsense units are equipped with the standard comforts (A/C, TV), and all have kitchens and balconies or verandas. Three of the units overlook the central pool where visiting celebs (including Jude Law) have frolicked. The pool complex also has a hot tub, kiddie pool, and small playground—but the showstopper of the property is the dining room, housed in the original 1893-built home where the owners' ancestors lived.
Closed October through May.
