A quiet, beautiful retreat from normality. Set in the hills of lefkas (very beautiful, unspoilt, and rugged) Pavezzo is a very special place. Everything is considered here, the staff are warm, helpful and incredibly kind , it's decorated perfectly, and the food and drink are reasonable and delicious. It's small, family run and it really works. The village itself is... More

We stayed at Pavezzo this summer, the location and the village is fantastic. There are certain things though that the people should take into serious consideration if they want to keep the standards of a five star destination. In order to keep it clean they should hire more people for service and cleaning . They must throw all these left... More

We first stayed at Pavezzo a few years back, booking the Honeymoon villa; I can honestly say that was the best time we've had in our lives, and everything was perfect. So we went back a couple more times, and although the other houses were not (naturally) as good as the Honeymoon villa, it still was great. This year, however,... More

Breakfast, was different, with... More

We have spent in Pavezzo a dream week. We have really enjoyed the special charm of the place, the kindness of Apostolos, the calm and relaxing atmosphere, the trees and flowers, the enchanting swimling pool. Attention is paid to all details and everything is done to make the guest hapy. Excellent breakfasts served in a lovely restaurant.

Pavezzo is a very beautiful boutique hotel, located in Katouna village. The accommodation is offered in separated stone houses, nicely decorated from Maria Matsa, who owns Pavezzo. Maria, Alexandros, Odysseas and Apostolos provide a warm welcome and a personal service. We will come back!

Arriving and staying in Pavezzo is something words cannot describe, so I will be brief...Stunning view from the retreat, beautiful and peaceful little village on the top of the island and this wonderful hotel (let's call it a hotel, but it doesn't feel like one!) with an amazing attention to details.

I spent a week at Pavezzo Country Retreat over the Easter holidays and I am very glad to say that It fulfilled more than my every expectation and I'm a somewhat demanding traveller.

Pavezzo is a very romantic beautifully decorated hotel surrounded with all kinds of trees, plants and flowers. It is most suitable for couples vising Lefkada and looking for some quality time. Apostolos and the staff made everything to make our stay pleasant.
