About Paxos

The beautiful island of Paxos lies in the Ionian Sea, just south of Corfu. Barely 12 km end to end and 4 km at its widest, Paxos is unusually green, being covered in olive trees which were first introduced by the Italians in the 14th century. The rocks and cliffs of its unspoilt coastline make way to crystal clear waters and exploring the island by boat, stopping to swim and explore, is one of the greatest pleasures of a visit to the island.
The smaller island of Antipaxos to the south boasts beautiful sandy beaches and brilliant blue water.
In Gaios, Loggos and Lakka  the main town and principal villages of the island visitors can enjoy numerous bars, tavernas and restaurants.

Paxos is also renowned for walking, and there are miles of tracks running through the olive groves, along the dramatic west coast cliffs and down to secluded beaches all round the island.
There is a variety of accommodation on the island, from its two hotels to numerous villas, apartments and studios.

The Paxos Music Festivals were the idea and inspiration of the late John Gough, a passionate musician and long-term resident on the island. The first performances in 1986 took place in John’s garden, close to Loggos.

The Festivals

The Paxos Festival Trust organises two festivals each year: the Spring Festival in June with an emphasis on contemporary music and the International Festival in September with a more classical repertoire.

The Autumn Chamber Music Festival

The Autumn Festival has undergone many transformations in the 26 years since its inception. Artistic leadership has come from eminent musicians including violinist Jagdish Mistry and pianists Caroline Palmer and Julian Jacobson. Since 2010, Australian pianist Lara Dodds-Eden has been Artistic Director.

The Spring New Music Festival

In 2004 the Trust inaugurated a Spring Festival devoted exclusively to 20th Century Chamber Music. Directed by four soloist members of the Ensemble Modern of Frankfurt on behalf of its International Academy, IEMA, the purpose of this new development was to provide selected Greek students and young professionals with intensive study and performance experience in new repertoire for ensemble.

25th Anniversary

In September 2011, the Festival celebrated its 25th Anniversary Year – read all about it.
