My 8th visit to Anaxos and I can honestly say I never tire of this laid back, friendly, safe, unspoilt, typical Greek village. From the friends I have made over the years to the welcoming hospitality of all the local villagers I cannot imagine a warmer (and not just in climate) holiday destination. The wonderful locals are not rich in monetary terms however their wealth and richness shines forth from every pore of their being and their soul is deep with goodness. Imagine waking up to the lapping of waves, the warmth of the rising sun, the donkey rising in the field, the cockerel crowing, the birds singing, men watering their crops, the smell of freshly baked bread and a friendly Kalimera to all. Slowly the village comes to life and children are playing with an old water tub, a stick or a piece of rope. Not an ipad, computer in sight, no daytime TV, just the basic simple innocent pleasures of quaint village life. The day passes with coffee and cake from a villager who welcomes you to their home. You attempt to converse with what little Greek you know however this is not important as the greeting you get and the smile and hug says more than any words can do. The beach is scattered with local families having time together. No rush, come and join us, have some olives, bread, ouzo, be our guests. Evening falls and the sunset is to die for. Suddenly Anaxos 'comes out', no, not as a night-life village but a welcoming big family affair. Families join families, children play with friends, men chat, women cater, laughs abound and all at a slow sedate pace. Yes, ouzo is drunk and food is eaten, fun is had dancing is amazing and music is played but not one frown is seen upon a face. Oh for 12 months a year of this! Paradise is Anaxos!

    Anaxos sounds divine. Over the years we have enjoyed wonderful holidays in Greece and have never met such welcoming people anywhere. The ideal holiday.
