About the villa
A stunningly creative blend of simplicity and sophistication, this very chic hotel in Paxos is an intimate, atmospheric and entirely unique romantic retreat – definitely designed for grown-ups. Nestled on a hillside strewn with big boulders and ancient olive trees, Torri e Merli is a building brimming with character. Its origins as an 18th century fortified manor house are still clearly visible in the turrets and battlements from which the hotel takes its name, which makes the exquisite interiors even more surprising. Muted hues and bright white furnishings meet bare stone walls and old tiled floors. Romantic bedrooms with piles of plump cushions are offset with ultra-contemporary bathrooms. And moods are set with modern lamps, bouncing light off glass and chrome furniture. Each of the seven suites has a comfortable sitting area with a big soft sofa and armchair, and either a balcony or a small garden terrace with a view of the sea or on to the grounds. An air of undisturbed relaxation is enhanced by a swimming pool and restaurant among the olive trees, and by the hotel’s creatively converted cellars, now home to a massage room. The lovely harbour village of Lakka is a leisurely 800m stroll away, with stylish restaurants and ample shops.
- All suites have either garden or distant sea view, and a balcony or a verandah. Rooms are large with a sitting area and almost all have a sofa bed suitable for one adult or two children.
- Satellite TV (limited English speaking channels)
- Air conditioning
- Molton Brown bathroom amenities

Service & Staffing
Paxos is so small—about twelve kilometres long and four kilometres wide—that a practised walker could explore virtually the whole island without the aid of bike, taxi, or bus. Its population—about 2,300 permanent residents living in Gaios, Loggos, Lakka, and a scattering of tiny hamlets—is about that of a small village: you could get to know most of them personally. Still unspoilt and covered in olive and pine trees, it attracts people who come to unwind, to get away from it all. It is popular with itinerant yachting folk, a magnet for visitors from Corfu and from the mainland resort of Parga, who arrive by ferry or hydrofoil. Villas in Paxos provide a fantastic, self-sufficient base to explore this laid-back, cool and beautiful island.
