Dreaming of a getaway to Greece? For a taste of traditional culture away from the crowds, head to Paxos. This dreamy island is the smallest in the Ionian Sea chain and the lesser-visited neighbour of famous Corfu. With no airport, there’s an undiscovered feel here, evidenced by tiny seaside villages, soaring sea cliffs and hidden coves. Whether you’re looking for a sleek spa resort, boutique property or private apartment, here are some of the top hotels in Paxos – all bookable with Culture Trip.
