Luxury in Paros: Summer time splendour
There is a perfect bit of golden sand for everyone on Paros, whether for a family picnic, a party or a honeymoon moment. For the water enthusiasts there are scuba diving, sea kayaking, wind surfing, kite surfing, snorkelling and water skiing. Alternate this with walking, horse riding or visiting the Venetian Fortress of Naoussa. Visit the archaeological sites and get linked in with people from the Palaeolithic times to the present. Catch your breath in a little bar or tavern before you join the energy in one of the legendary clubs filled with loud music, dancing people and strong drinks. Stroll through the Parian traditional villages, which are perfect samples of Cycladic architecture with whitewashed houses and blue-domed churches. The shops are open seven days a week, enticing you to exchange your money for a concrete memory of an exquisite summer holiday in a private rental villa in the Cyclades.
Walk in the footsteps of ancient poets or follow the traces which are left of former civilisations. This jewel of the Aegean Sea, with its 120 km of coastline, is entirely encompassed by a well-developed network of bus routes, which makes it easy to become part of this cultural hub in the Cyclades. Historically known for its fine white marble, this fertile island is now an attentive host to the residents of any luxury villa on Paros. During summer time, regular air services connect Athens and Paros, and from Paros, there is a variety of ferry connections to all of the Cyclades. The coastline of Paros varies with rocky and sandy spots rimmed in by the always clean and crystal water. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the small islet of Antíparos, lying southwest of Paros, which can easily be reached from Poúnda or Parikiá by boat.
