Welcome to Paros, perhaps the most royal of all the Cyclades islands! Beautiful, sandy shores, crystalline waters, the gentle breeze of the Meltemi wind, and adorable whitewashed architecture will make you feel love struck at first sight! Definitely one of the most versatile Greek islands, Paros can enchant every kind of traveller, infusing their stay with countless authentic, less touristy (compared to Mykonos or Santorini) experiences.
Particularly famed for its marble quarries, Paros was the go-to place in ancient Greece when people wanted to build a temple for their favourite ancient Greek god. No wonder the Acropolis and some of the most famous temples of the ancient world (i.e., the temple of Apollo and the temple of Zeus) have been created using Parian marble.
That aside, though, Paros also provides all-around entertainment through its vibrant after-dark scene. It might not be the high-octane nightlife you can have at Mykonos, but it certainly covers all needs for nightly fun.
As for its accommodation, Paros is home to both fantastic luxury hotels and VIP villas that epitomise grandness, elegance, chicness, Cycladic architecture, and luxury. Offering ultimate pampering to their guests, the exclusive mansions entice with a plethora of modern amenities, world-class facilities, and high-ranking services. Plus, you can always boost your overall holiday experience by requesting concierge services that cover even the most eccentric requirement.
Through this guide, we will try to help you decide on key aspects of your Paros luxury accommodation. Expect insider’s advice about things like where to stay in Paros so your needs are fully met. Also, how to choose the most suitable property for you and your loved one(s) and why booking a villa comes as a higher value-for-money option than others.
Why choose a villa in Paros?
Renting a Paros villa is a far more beneficial move than any other that will bring you better value for your money if you only consider the details of your stay. For instance, with a Paros villa, you get:
A profound abundance of space
Whether private or communal, a stylish villa allows you to enjoy as much personal space as you desire. From commodious en-suite bedrooms to huge outdoor dining and lounge areas, you can claim your fair share of precious me-time. Not having to share the same areas and rooms with strangers, which is the case with other accommodation options, living in a chic unit will also get you a wide range of entertainment alternatives. Feel like swimming at your infinity pool? Basking under the sun by the lounge area? Enjoy your breakfast in your garden, veranda or terrace? Share a glass of wine while savouring a meaty BBQ? You get to choose!
Unique culinary experiences
Eating out and tasting the local cuisine is one way to experience the local culture and gastronomy. However, this can also turn out quite costly if you have to dine out every single day. Renting a villa gives you the opportunity to choose how you would rather live this particular aspect of your Paros holidays. For starters, you can cook your own meals at the fully equipped kitchen (can even be a professional kitchen, depending on the villa amenities). Secondly, you can have us arrange a cooking class delivered at the premises of your property, where an experienced chef will teach you how to make the most popular Greek dishes! Or you can have a private chef prepare all your meals with hand-picked ingredients from the local food market featuring fresh produce, herbs, spices, fish, poultry, and meat.
Taking into consideration the fact that all Paros mansions are actually private properties and residences, it goes without saying that you get high levels of privacy. In fact, all the private villas in Paros that eventually make it to our portfolio after going through a stringent selection process are hand-picked for being able to provide a home-away-from-home experience. Feeling safe and enjoying your time with your loved one or ones away from prying eyes, noises, snoring sounds, and next-room screaming is definitely crucial for a gratifying getaway at Paros.
Plus, you don’t need to settle with things like shared laundry facilities and people eagerly waiting for their turn at the very moment you are relaxing at a Jacuzzi, letting off some steam at the gym, or unwinding at the sauna. Not to mention the cramming around the swimming pool. All these are not a point of concern when booking an exclusive villa.
Autonomy and flexibility
A Paros villa does not limit your autonomy or freedom of choice. Instead, you get to make your own schedule every day as you please and change it according to your desires at the time. You don’t need to follow the dining and lounging plans of others or rub shoulders with strangers sharing the same facilities as you. If you wish to have breakfast, for example, at your private veranda or your garden at 11 in the morning, you can certainly do so. Want to have a get-together with friends and family over a meaty BBQ in the backyard? You can. Want to taste something different than usual? You or your private chef can get in that fully equipped (or even professional) kitchen and create culinary masterpieces (or just have fun in the process). A villa, in short, offers flexibility, in every sense, which you can’t get elsewhere.
A fantastic upgrade of services
Utilising a villa’s concierge services, you can live the ultimate Paros dream, no matter the colours, shades, flavours, activities, or aromas you wish to inject into your Paros getaway or vacation.

Tips to choose the best Paros villa
We have broken the basics down depending on the type of Paros experience most travellers usually seek.
Visiting Paros for its sandy shores
If a stellar beach experience is at the core of your Paros holidays or escape, then a villa near the Chrisi Akti region (means Golden Shore or Golden Sand) is your best bet. Some of the most elegant Chrisi Akti units within close proximity to the best Paros beaches are Villa Aella, Villa Amadeus, and Villa Noella that can sleep from 6 and up to 15 guests. Depending on the available villa amenities, expect to be spoiled with perks like a playroom, built-in BBQ, private pool, spacious indoor and outdoor dining areas, a fully equipped kitchen, and, of course, spectacular views of the Aegean Sea.
Living like a local
Many tourists seek the most authentic experiences when visiting a foreign destination, especially when that involves a trip to Greece. Renowned for its hospitality and friendly vibes, you can get the most out of your Paros ventures if you select to stay at a villa close to the scenic traditional villages that dot the beautiful Paros landscape. That way, you can easily mingle with the locals and get a full understanding of what it feels like to be a Paros inhabitant!
Some great picks are Drios, Ambelas, Alyki, and Piso Livadi – all captivating with their unique charm and magnetism. Some of the properties that can grant this wish are adorable Vila Alby, Villa Koa, Villa Noemi, Villa Kenzie, and Villa Aura. Designed to accommodate between 7 and 12 guests (depends on which one you choose), they pamper with amenities like private terraces, plenty of outdoor and indoor living, lounging, and dining spaces, lavish en-suite bedrooms, a professional kitchen, a gym, and amazing garden and sea views, to name a few.
Being close to every available option
Renting a villa at picturesque Naoussa village sitting on a gorgeous bay is the best alternative if you want to get a taste of every single option available during your Paros endeavours. This includes from bars and clubs to restaurants, tavernas, and beaches. Some of the units you could consider, in this case, are 5-bedroom Villa Austin, 3-bedrooms Villa Maroon, 2-bedroom Villa Calvin, and Villa Aniya that can sleep up to 16 guests. Elegance, style, carefully selected decorations and furniture, adorable Cycladic architecture, and a long list of facilities lay the foundation for memorable Paros experiences.
