Paxos Biennale Sponsors:

Essentiel Antwerp and The Thinking Traveller

About Essentiel

What started out as a basic T-shirt collection in 1999 grew into a colorful Ready-to-Wear collection for men and women. Essentiel Antwerp operates in 40+ own points of sales in Belgium, France, Spain, The Netherlands, Germany and UK, you will also find our collection in numerous multi-brand stores both nationally and internationally.

“Essentiel Antwerp’s owners, Esfan Eghtessadi and Inge Onsea have a particular attachment for the beautiful island of Paxos as well as the arts in general. They are excited to take part in this beautiful journey to inspire and promote the culture and the heritage of the island.”

About The Thinking Traveller

Since 2002, The Thinking Traveller has been offering privileged and exclusive access to the most desirable rental properties in the heart of the Mediterranean, more specifically in Sicily, Puglia, the Ionian and the Sporades Islands, and Corsica. The company’s success – including being voted Best Villa Rental Company three times at the Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Travel Awards - is based on three founding principles: exceptional villas, unrivalled local knowledge and expert personal service.

“When we were approached about becoming a Premium Sponsor for the Paxos Biennale, we were delighted to accept. We’ve long been in love with Paxos, its people and its wonderful mix of beaches, olive carpeted hills, dramatic cliffs and picturesque little harbours, so to be part of a cultural initiative that will promote sustainable, quality tourism is a great honour. We can’t wait to see the artists’ work and we know our clients are excited too.”

About Fougaros Tailored Travel

Fougaros has been in business for over 20 years now and offers a large choice of exclusive villas and studios for vacation rental on the island of Paxos. We also rent cars, bikes and boats making otherwise trublesome chores a very pleasent one-stop experience.

We are ourselves residents of Paxos and we are enchanted by the island. We share this feeling with our guests, having earned a fine reputation for our warm hospitality and the quality of Paxos accommodation we offer. We will help you to choose the place you will stay and to explore the island by car, bicycle, bike, boat or on foot in order to discover the unique beauty of the island.

“I grew up in Paxos and as a businessman I had the opportunity to travel a lot around the world. In all my journeys I never saw art works so well integrated with the local landscape. In 2018 I was very impressed by how the artists involved in the Paxos Biennale managed to merge their work with the infinite beauty of our island. We will definitely want to support this beautiful festival again this year!” Stefanos Fougaros
