Admire the yachts After a mouth-watering traditional Greek meal you could spend the afternoon admiring the many yachts that gently bob up and down in this curved harbour. Shopping Lakka and the island of Paxos in general might not be known for its shopping but with a couple of quality craft shops you can expect to pick up some quirky Greek souvenir or gift in Lakka to take home and remind you of your holiday on Paxos. Fantastic walks The tree-covered hills and emerald headlands that surround Lakka are also waiting to be explored. As for the early hours, Gerry claims the Excel charter flights almost guarantee holidaymakers arrive on time.
It's hard to remain grumpy about the journey, however, when you have left the overcast hubbub of Corfu and are steaming into the sun with a beer in hand watching a school of dolphins playing in the ship's wake. The Planos brochure is reassuringly homely, with pictures of the staff, all of whom have been to Paxos, and luscious photographs of the island, complete with turquoise seas and tiny, white-painted tavernas with yellow-and-blue fishing boats bobbing politely in the harbour. Nothing could be that good-looking in real life. It is, believe me. You could hear the assembled gasp from Paxos first-timers as the ferry rounded the island's rocky northern tip and chugged into Lakka.
Our holiday organiser, Mary, directed a team of tough-looking matelots to unload luggage and invited guests to walk or take a short 4x4 journey to their apartments.
Planos offers a selection of apartments in Lakka, or neighbouring and smaller Loggos, as well as houses dotted round the hillsides, the farther-flung houses get a 4 x 4 thrown in, although the size of the island means you are always less than a mile from the water. We stayed in Sula, an airy, three-bedroom, self-catering flat on the harbour front. Fine in May, but perhaps a bit noisy in midsummer when the harbour accommodates up to 70 yachts from Italy and Greece, as well as braying British yachties on flotilla-sailing holidays.
While the sun will scorch you even in May, temperatures then are not a patch on the well-over 40C highs of late July.
Dissapointing - Ionian Cruises
Few of the Planos houses and flats are air-conditioned, but the sea and the frequent strong warm winds do moderate temperatures somewhat. But British families with young children do come in high summer and don't seem to find the heat excessive. Local requirements and customs are few and don't take much getting used to: Our apartment proved a perfect place to enjoy the tiny port and the balconies front and rear were idyllic vantage points for cool midday eating or aperitifs at sundown.
With firm beds, a ban on traffic in the village at night and active days, sleep came easily, although a turf war between the village ducks, geese and donkey could be noisy at times. You also become acutely aware that Paxos motor scooters seem to work on an entirely different principle to those found in Britain, needing a massive burst of noisy revs between each gear change and before switching off.
We quickly got into the swing.
