The house in Marpisa is an excellent base for exploring beautiful Paros. We were given additional access to the vacant guest room which was really good as that has the best outdoor living.
The house has all the mod cons except internet, phone or a DVD player. As described, it has plenty of character.
Welcome drinks were a nice touch.
A car is recommended and we found it very useful to have one.
Plenty of room for the nine of us and we look forward to returning again!
Lovely picturesque village in the beautiful island of Paros. The house is in a quiet "pedestrian only" zone and is recently renovated keeping the traditional greek architectue untouched. Traditionally and elegantly decorated it has a lovely view from the big terrace and from every window of the house. Nice little taverna with great greek food only a minute away and also small super market within 2 minutes walking. I loved my time there and would definitely come back. I strongly recommend it.
My first trip to Paros landed me in this oasis of calm and I am very gratefull to you for this.
I have lovely memories of birds chirping in the courtyard in the air.
I can't wait to get back.
It’s a true Greek experience.
Its a perfect starting point for visiting beautiful Greek island destinations and enjoy nature.
The village is charming, slow-paced, with nice alleys and lots of character.
The house is recently renovated, but having kept the original character.
My room was quaint and the view was perfect. Every morning I could hear the chiming of church bells, what a brilliant way to wake up.
I would completely recommend this
hotel to any family or friend planning on spending time in Paros.
The attention to detail is everywhere .
The view of the sea , and the rest of the island was mesmerising.
I believe this is the among the best places I had stayed. A real gem...
See you soon ..... Gregory !
