We only stayed here for one night as we were flying out the next morning. Emailed with Sofia prior to our arrival who was very accommodating. Met Sofia's father upon arrival who was very nice. He even drove us to the airport the following morning. Two blocks from the water. Mini-market a couple of blocks away. Parikia is a charming... More

STAY HERE! Ok, now that I've gotten that out of the way, I'll tell you some reasons why. Arrival and Check In: We arrived very late because our ferry from Mykonos was delayed because of high winds. When we got off the ferry, we were pleasantly surprised to be greeted and driven to the property. It was a nice surprise... More

Wonderful garden hotel in lush green oasis minutes from the port of Paros. The owners make you feel like you've arrived home with caring and wonderful relatives, without ever being intrusive. Our ferry was hours late due to high winds, and they met us with a sign at the port to take us to the hotel. Charming rooms, all with... More

We loved staying at Pension Sofia. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and the place is lovely. The garden in particular makes this place stand out - it is big and beautiful, and there are several places to sit and relax or have breakfast, so it feels very private. Breakfast was freshly made and delicious, and we were served... More

Once more with my Greek Family...have said it so many times, but never enough, how wonderful it feels every time I come back. If you search heaven on earth you will find that piece of Paradise in Paros, place Pension Sofia. Manolis, Sofia and Evita will look after you, always with a smile on their face. The place just beautiful... More

Loved our stay at this hotel. Its a simple charming family run hotel, great value, walking distance from the main shopping area and ferry, with nice gardens. The rooms are simple but homely. Its of course not 5 star but what it lacks in luxury is more than made up for via the hospitality of the lovely family who run... More

My friend and I stayed 4 nights at Pension Sofia during our trip around the Cyclades islands and we literally loved it!! We were picked up directly from the port even if the pension is 5min away. Our room was great, very clean and comfortable, with a small fridge and everything we needed to prepare our diner that we enjoyed... More

Stayed at Pension Sofia for 3 nights during our Greek island hopping trip and Sophie and Emmanuel were excellent hosts! The room was comfortable and clean and the balcony looked out over the beautiful garden and sea. My husband had breakfast which was €8 and included fresh orange juice, filter coffee, bread, jam, honey and homemade cake, also boiled egg... More
