Location

Adamantia Hotel is located in a traditional village full of character, 1 km away from Gaios, the capital of the island, and 1.5 km from the nearest beaches.

 

   

  

The beautiful island of Paxos, the smallest of the Ionian Islands, is located in the Ionian Sea in northwestern Greece. According to Greek mythology, Poseidon created the island by striking Corfu with his trident, so that he and wife Amphitrite could have some peace and quiet. Paxos was the love nest of Neptune and Amphitrite. Paxos is a cluster of small islands and islets, the largest of which are Paxos and Antipaxos. It is located 7 miles south of Corfu and just 8 miles from the coast of Epirus. The capital of Paxos is picturesque Gaios, which is naturally protected by the two islands Panagia and Agios Nikolaos.

 

  

 

Paxos is characterized by dense vegetation, small vineyards and endless olive groves – dating back hundreds of years. Paxos is an island with many caves and sulphur springs.


Visitors can admire the sheer beauty of a nature which has maintained its pristine quality up to the present day. They can enjoy the harmonious coexistence of olives, stone and pine. Furthermore, they can cool themselves on countless natural beaches that surround the island with their turquoise waters. The seaside villages Loggos, Lakka and Gaios, await the visitor to experience Ionian cuisine and to enjoy the wonderful wine from Antipaxos.
