Paros Island

Second only in the Cycladic pecking order to Mykonos, Paros has become firmly established as a quality holiday destination.

You may choose the lively, cosmopolitan atmosphere of the main port and town of Parikia. Although not eye-catchingly attractive, a visit to the original, old part of town will unearth a wealth of interesting shops, old houses with balconies that almost meet across the narrow streets and some delightful restaurants.

Piso Livadi by contrast still possesses that quaint, fishing village atmosphere so beloved of true grecophiles. The standard necklace of taverns and cafes surround the sandy, village beach. A small quayside attracts the fishing boats like a magnet; their gaudy, yellow nets laid out to dry in the bright sunshine like a massive spider's web.

The stunningly attractive village of Naoussa is our third holiday base on the island. A harbor crammed gunwale to gunwale with brightly painted caiques, narrow, winding alleyways "a la Mykonos" and some of the best taverns we have had the pleasure to frequent make this the ideal choice should Parikia be too busy or Piso Livadi too quiet for your tastes.

Last but not least, on the east coast, lush, relaxed Drios boasts one of the best beaches on the island, Chryssi Akti, as well as a number of other sandy coves that will delight beach lovers.

Hydra Island


Welcome to Hellas (Greece) and welcome to Hydra! it's probably impossible to fit all of Hydra's fascinating beauty in this small pamphlet. We have attempted, however, to give a short description of the island that has enough to offer the visitor and guarantees a memorable vacation.

The healthy dry climate, the friendly people, the sparkling warm waters and the picturesque harbor that at sundown transforms into a cosmopolitan city full of sports, scuba diving, trips to the islander historical monasteries, donkey rides in town, shopping In the stores along the harbor, good food in the taverner and restaurants, and all night partying at the bars and music clubs around town.

The high quality and exquisite service characteristic of the hotels and other shops and restaurants fit perfectly the strict standards of the highest class visitors and the jet set from all over the world that come to Hydra every year.
