We fell in love immediately walking up to this place. Very good location, friendly staff and beautiful landscape. Perfect for our time on Paros and added to our experience on this lovely island. The moonflowers and animals were an added bonus.

Extremely pleasant stay at delightful pension Sofia. Run by a polite and very sweet couple, who go the extra mile to make you feel welcome, it is definitely a place you actually feel love. Charming clean rooms with balcony and beautifully cared garden, walkable distance from port, beach, restaurants and shops. Wish I was still there.

We chose to stay here as we were looking for a base for our trip to Paros. We booked direct and Sofia was helpful on emails and the price was very reasonable. We were collected on arrival from the port by her husband who was very informative showing us where the supermarket was and the main town. The apartments are in a great location 10 minutes from the main port and town and 5 minutes from the bigger beach in the town. There are some great restaurants along the front only a few minutes away also. The pension is set in beautiful gardens and some rooms have a slight sea view. It is very quiet and peaceful. Our room was basic and not huge but well equipped with fridge, air con, safe and a very good powerful shower. The WiFi worked well also. We had booked breakfast which was 8 euros each each morning and it was good, the highlight the freshly squeezed orange juice and the nice coffee. We had a good stay at the Sofia pension and I would recommend it as a great base as the location is excellent. It is comfortable and nice and peaceful.

After spending time in Santorini, this lovely pension was just what we needed to unwind and get away from all the tourists! Sofia and her husband make you feel at home. The rooms have a nice cozy feel and have everything you could possibly need. The gardens are big and absolutely beautiful, the breakfast is delicious featuring homemade baked goods from Sofia's kitchen. Add to that Nala the dog and several friendly cats and you feel like you are home! You can't find a better place on Paros. We took a bus ride to Naousa to walk around and have lunch. We were glad we were staying in Parikia. More vibrant and more to do.

We stayed at Pension Sofia in September 2018. If your visit is anything like ours, a warm welcome awaits you. We arrived early from Athens before our room was ready. We were welcomed with some freshly squeezed orange juice and some home-made cake whilst we sat in the garden. The garden is beautiful, with lots of flowers, lush foliage and water features. In the garden, there are various shaded nooks and crannies with seating to relax in. Our room (Room 4) was clean and very well equipped with TV, air conditioning, hair drier, full size fridge, kettle (great to make a ‘proper’ cup of British-style tea - with your own tea bags), cups, glasses, cutlery, room safe, private balcony. Wi-Fi was available but we found it a bit patchy at times. The room was simple but nicely decorated. The bed was well presented with some towel ‘swans’. We found it a little firm for our tastes - but it was clean and reasonably comfortable. A breakfast buffet is available from 08:30 to 10:30 for 8 Euros per head, with fresh, homemade items. If you can’t find what you are looking for, Sofia can provide more. The pension is set back a hundred or so metres from the sea front and a short walk from the centre of the old town and the port (about 600m). There is a vast range of restaurants and bars nearby along the seafront and in town. You can also find numerous places to rent a car or motorcycle if you wish - or there is a bus service running from the centre of town that covers most of the island’s key locations. Sofia, her husband and daughter work hard to make your stay a pleasant one. We thoroughly recommend Pension Sofia if you want a pleasant stay on Páros.

A nice pension which is immaculately clean. Free lifts to and from the port. A good base in Paros if staying in the port area. A few streets back from the waterfront and a 10 minute walk into the town.

Sofia and her husband, as many reviewers stated, are tremendous hosts and the rooms and garden are beautifully maintained. We really wish we had booked more nights here. The location is excellent as well - close access to both the beach and the cute walkable streets of Parikia. We strongly preferred Parikia over Naousa and this is the place to stay!!

You can tell this small hotel takes great pride in maintaining their garden, which is filled with green grass, lush plants, two rabbits, a bird and a few cats, and lots of swings, seats and hammocks. It would be a great place to stay with young kids, as they could safely run around the garden and explore while parents sit and relax. It is a very short walk from a lovely beach and from restaurants, and is less than a 10 min walk from the beautiful old town of Parika. They also offered airport transfer. The rooms are fairly small (e.g. could not fit a cot in the room for our baby) but are decoratively sweetly.

Pension Sofia provides superb value for money. This property can’t be beaten anywhere in Greece, in my 26 years’ experience visiting much of the mainland as well as about a dozen of the islands including much of Crete. It is in a central yet quiet location in Parikia, within short and easy walking distance to Livadia Beach and multiple beachside tavernas, shops in the old town, and not far from the bus station and ferry port. Sofia’s husband met us at the ferry with their car on our arrival, and the day of our departure Sofia took us back tothe ferry by car. We had a fair bit of luggage, and the car rides were much appreciated in the July heat. Both hosts are very friendly and helpful. Both speak English, and the husband speaks French as well. We had a clean, very comfortable, tastefully decorated, quiet room with a private balcony equipped with a marble-topped table and two chairs, a clothesline cord and clothes pegs. The room had a clean and well-designed en suite with an excellent shower, daily cleaning and linens/towels, very good air conditioning, a room safe, good password-protected wifi, and access to a computer and printer in the office if needed. We ate our breakfasts in the beautifully-landscaped, quiet and cool garden. It was the best B&B buffet breakfast I’ve ever had in Greece, well worth €8 each. It included fresh-squeezed orange juice, yoghurt with honey and nuts, breads and cheese, excellent pastries (usually spinach or cheese pies), fresh fruit, hard-boiled eggs, small cakes, tea, and excellent filter coffee. The high ratings on Trip Advisor, as well as in the Lonely Planet Guide, are richly deserved.

My wife and I stayed 4 nights for our honeymoon and couldnt have picked a better place. Sofia and her husband Manoli keep the grounds and rooms immaculate. Manoli picked us up from the port and gave us a quick tour on the way to the property. Everything is within a close walk (10 minutes) and there are some restaurants even closer. This place is located on a quiet street so you can relax when you need to. If we ever come back to Paros, we will definitely not stay anywhere else. Wifi is solid as well and theres a computer thats public if needed.Σας ευχαριστούμε για όλα Σοφία και Μανόλη! Χαρήκαμε πάρα πολύ που Σας γνωρίσαμε και που καθίσαμε μαζί σας. Καλή συνέχεια!
