I've been reading all the wonderful information on Trip Advisor for months. Have purchased our tickets from Toronto to Athens, arriving June 9, 2014. Have 14 days to spend in Greece. Thinking of 2 days in Athens, then splitting the other 12 days between the islands of Naxos and Paros.
Love: sightseeing, history, beaches, hiking, biking, sailing, tours, exploring on own
No interest in night life or bars
Want: Very comfortable and quiet accommodations with sea view, like small/boutique hotels.
Willing to be on a budget for meals... eat in, etc. Prefer to allocate more of my budget for better accommodations than better restaurants/dining.
I'm strongly considering booking a suite for 7 nights at Mitos Suites in Agios Prokopios, Naxos.
Has anyone stayed there? Can anyone recommend a place to stay on Paros similar or less expensive than Mitos Suites, and any budget accommodations in Athens? Would like to have one week at a really fantastic place - as Mitos appears to be.
Open to all suggestions from those who are experienced in these areas of Greek travel. This is truly the biggest trip of our lives (I have been saving for years) and we have never traveled internationally.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
