About
Nature Reserve Area - Lounge Cafe. Every year in the summer months, swarms of butterflies come and settle in this small oasis situated on southwest part of the island. Sitting on the leaves or trunks, hundreds of them rest during the day and fly during the night. Panaxia Quadripunctaria is the name of this nocturnal moth that is attracted to this area from June to September. We could say that nature is calling them in this place to find the peace and the energy that is required to migrate back to where they came from. After your walk, you can enjoy a coffee on those hot summer days surrounded by a light breeze. A playground is also an option for our little friends. You are welcome to visit, have a walk & witness this rare phenomenon.

A must do! Beautiful spot.

This is a beautiful little alcove in Paros! Even if you spend only 20 minutes in the reserve, you’ll be enchanted by the overgrown trees, vine covered walls, and gorgeous fountains. The butterflies are abundant, and the owner of the reserve is kind and welcoming. Don’t miss it!

Beautiful and relaxing
May 2021 • Couples
What a beautiful and relaxing place to spend an hour or two. Nature at it’s best. When we came to the Butterfly Valley it was still (officially) closed but they opened it for us. So nice! There is a little shop and very nice cafè. Highly recommend it for a perfect stay on Paros.

what a great spot to spent your afternoon in Paros. We were lucky to see loads of butterflies, ripe fruit on the trees and even a close look at an amazing falcon that landed to meters from us...

Beautiful oasis!! And love the butterflies!
Jun 2021
What a beautiful oasis with fascinating butterflies!! Madeleine and her father were wonderful, taking the time to explain the butterflies and some of the amazing horticultural items in their reserve. Just walking along the botantical path, in the cool, quiet and peaceful reserve, would have been worth the trip, but the amazing butterflies (yes, there is only 1 variety), are unique as we observe them in their natural habitat. And when they fly, their red underside is quite brilliant against the greenery. But, difficult to get a photo of them in flight!

Do your research before complaining
Jul 2019 • Friends
I don’t understand people expressing their disappointment over the only-one-kind-of butterfly . Don’t you search about the place before you go? There’s a website with written information about the place. My experience was lovely. I walked through
the small park, relaxed in an quiet place and enjoyed the shade. The price is 2,50 to enter. Which I find logical. You should definitely read the information and respect the butterflies as it would kill them to bother them. Would recommend to people that want to see something different and are nature lovers

Would not recommend
Jun 2019 • Couples
Ok as a park with nice trees. But if you want to see cool butterflies, don’t go. There is mostly just one kind, see picture.
Disappointing to say the least.

Save the 2,50€ for a nice gyros in pita by the port instead.

Go for the sandwich
Aug 2018
The butterflies were so-so but those 2 euro sandwich’s is well worth it. Cheap eats for tourists so go ham on the ham for the savings.
