Glyfada Beach villas has 2 Tavernas one close to the sea with a beach bar and a large terrace with a beautiful sea view. Here we serve breakfast every day from 08.00 - 10.15 and Greek lunch from 13.00 - 17.00. Our taverna for dinner will be closed this year. All our food is freshly prepared in the Greek traditional way with the finest Greek ingredients.
The small Museum in Glyfada is very interesting as it presents a variety of artefacts found on Paxos. For example, there are oil lamps and old tools used for collecting olives (a speciality on Paxos). The musem can be found on the left, as you walk up the hill with the villas on your right. We recommend paying a visit because it provides a good insight into how people lived in the early days on Paxos.
There are 2 swimming pools in Glyfada Beach. One pool is located on the hill near the tennis court (closed during season 2020). The second swimming pool and Jacuzzi is located near to the beach and our Greek taverna. From both our pools there are spectacular views of the Ionian See towards the Greek mainland and Corfu.
Both pools have a good mixture of sea and salt water, which is constantly refreshed with a state of the art filtering system. There is also a pool bar at the pool near to the beach with soft drinks, spirits, ice creams and coffee. At times during the day both pools are mostly quiet, perfect for some relaxation and sunbathing on the comfortable sun loungers.
There is strictly no diving in both pools for your own safety. The deep end is 180 cm (just less than 6ft) and the shallow end is 90cm, ideal for children.
The tennis court is situated near the main entrance of Glyfada near the reception and pool.
It is a hard court which is surrounded by traditional stone walls and cypress trees which offer plenty of shade in late afternoon.
If you are a very keen player, you are advised to bring your own rackets and balls because number are limited. All sessions need to be pre-booked at the reception or with the manager in Glyfada. In 2020 non-residents will not be able to rent our tennis court (Covid-19 protocol)
Glyfada Beach villa's has access to 2 wonderfull beaches. On the one hand Monodendri Beach just below the villas and Glyfada Beach, which can be reached by the path opposite the swimming pool. Most of the beaches on Paxos are pebble beaches. For your own comfort and safety we advise you to wear jelly shoes or something similar.
