Once famous for its white marble quarries, Paros villas now attract guests seeking more leisurely pursuits. With golden beaches and a wealth of watersports, this Greek Island in the Cyclades is one of the best spots to windsurf or kitesurf on the Aegean Sea.
Perched like sugar cubes in the Paros hills, our white-washed Paros villas offer either beach access or private swimming pools. Whichever Paros villa you choose, the golden sands of Paros beaches are never more than a couple of miles away. Large sandy beaches such as Santa Maria offer windsurfing and kitesurfing rentals onsite, while Kolymbithres Beach appeals for its calm, clear water and impressive rock formations.
Spend a day exploring the capital port city of Parikia, and its Byzantine church, reportedly founded by Saint Helena (aka Constantine the Great’s mom). Feel your everyday cares fall into perspective as you wander its 4th century grounds. Another unique excursion from our villas in Paros is a visit to the forests of Petalourdes, the Valley of the Butterflies, where the islands’ tiger moths return each summer. Enjoy a traditional Greek meal in the hilltop town of Lefkes and be sure to bring your camera – this picture-perfect town is one of the prettiest spots on Paros.
