Whitewashed walls and blue-shuttered domes dot this quintessentially Cycladic island, famed for her quaint fishing villages and golden sands.
Exceptional villas curated by our experts
Somewhat in the shadow of her chic Cycladic sister Mykonos, Paros is perhaps all the more charming for the lack of crowds that descend her shores. There’s a relaxed charm to this little island - colourful fishing boats jostle for space in pretty walled harbours, splashes of bougainvillea tumbling down over traditional yet stylish seaside cafes.
Explore the labyrinthine old town of Parikia or walk the whitewashed streets of stylish Naoussa, peppered with pretty boutiques, before poring over treasures housed in the blue-domed Byzantine museum. Sailors will appreciate the notorious summer winds, enabling you to savour the scenery by sea - exploring hidden coves and quiet bays, or island-hop to laid-back Antiparos with its off the beaten track vibe.
Retire to your hilltop villa tucked among olive groves. Revel in tranquility as you gaze out over the Aegean, sparkling sapphire shores melting into the horizon. As darkness falls, dine under the vine covered courtyard, dripping with fresh figs. Have your chef prepare local delights - a squid ink risotto straight from the sea, as the curtains billow in the balmy breeze - harbour lights shimmering far below.
