If you’re looking to escape the crowds of Mykonos and Santorini then this high-end, high-design boutique hotel on the north-east coast of picture-perfect Paros could be just what you’re after.
Constructed using traditional white-block architecture, the 33 suites are part modern, part classic, and for all their simplicity feel organic, warm and welcoming. At the very least you’ll have a terrace with sunbeds; upgrade a bit and you’ll find yourself with a jacuzzi or an inviting private pool.
The communal pool is a tempting one as well, flanked by comfy sun loungers and tall, cream umbrellas. There’s a small, discreet spa for more serious pampering, and an excellent restaurant called Mr. E, which puts an international spin on fresh and seasonal Mediterranean cuisine.
Should you wish to explore, the staff at the front desk will give you the lowdown on what to see and do on Paros, from the finest fish restaurants by the harbour in Naoussa, to rural villages, Byzantine churches and a clutch of idyllic beaches.
