“Wonderful stay at a stylish traditional Paros house!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We stayed at Anezina for a week in the first week of July. It was a wonderful experience because we felt like we were staying in our own traditional but very stylish island house. The complex has a wonderful garden with paths leading to each house. The owners, Maria and Stavros are very friendly. Stavros is always so willing to give out all kinds of information and tips about where to go on the island, where to swim and what to expect from each beach, where to eat, what you can do every day. The pool area together with the restaurant have very nice furniture and relaxing atmosphere. It is only a very short driving distance to many famous and beautiful beaches. You should definitely try the restaurant! We ate at a lot of places and we came to the conclusion that it is one of the best on the island. Once you try you will return to eat most of the times there! The food is amazingly cooked, very tasty with selected ingredients and in addition to that the whole atmosphere and set up is so nice. There is nice soft music playing and you always feel most welcome.
It was a lovely stay for us, we were sad to leave the place, we will propose it to our friends and we look forward to staying there again next summer!

Anezina Village is a set of apartments/ houses around a pretty traditional courtyard. The hospitality was warm and welcoming, the food was terrific and we enjoyed the selection of Parian wine. i would definitely recommend the Greek night, the cooking evening and also the excursion to AntiParos. I really hope that we can go back because it was a very relaxing holiday. Maria and Stavros have developed something very special.

We stayed at Anezina Village in May 2013 and had such a fabulous time that it was very sad to leave.

Anezina Village is a collection of rustic, traditional cycladic houses with a very pretty garden in the middle. The pictures on the internet are seriously old and do not reflect how nice it is now. In fact, it had one of the loveliest, romantic settings for eating al fresco with twinkling lanterns, and I can't say it was beaten anywhere either on Mykonos or Paros. The food was seriously nice too and Stavros at front of house is a real foodie and it shows! Everything was beautifully prepared and presented. The restaurant is available to non-residents, but it is fairly unobtrusive from the main road, so it is generally relaxed and the music is cruisy and chilled, which suits the atmosphere very well indeed. At the end of the meal, they bring you out a free dessert which was usually orange drizzle cake (the best on the island for sure) or a greek yoghurt with cinnamon and nuts.

As for the hotel, this is not a "luxury hotel" in a standard way. It is comfortable though and our "house" was a really big 2 storey affair with 2 balcony areas, one of which was extremely large. The place is very pretty though and it was so very much nicer than we had expected (having booked it on the strength of the reviews of happy times by other travellers and not on the strength of the facilities or pictures).

Maria and her husband Stamatis run day excursions during the low seasons such as hiking tours (20 euros pp), or trips to Anti-Paros and Despotika (53 euros pp) with a chance to see sea caves (which we could not do sadly because the weather was really windy and the boat could not get close to the caves - so worth checking on the day whether sea caves are an option if this is important to you). They bring such a brightness to the trips, with loads of information and they seem to enjoy them too. I understand that they also arrange day trips to Santorini, but these depend on demand.

Something not to miss though is the Greek night (25 euros pp - though I don't drink and Stavros let me have it for 20 euros) and also the Greek cooking class (25 euros pp) and including eating the fruits of your labours, so excellent value too. These were so much fun and such a great way to interact with the other guests. We had such a blast that we came back for the following week's Greek night even though we were no longer staying at Anezina Village. Lots of dishes to try, lots of drink, Greek music with live band and singer and even the chance to do a spot of Greek dancing, which everyone who took part in seemed to enjoy.

There are beaches close by or a small pool in the hotel, and Drios is a very relaxed place to stay. Check out Anna's restaurant across the road too and make sure you have space for her roast baby chicken with herbs and lemon (with lemon potatoes) or you will be sorry.

We had such a wonderful time and the welcome was unbelievable. My friends sadly opted instead for a more "upmarket" place in Naoussa, and missed out on this lovely experience!

Thank you to Maria, Stamatis, Stavros and the rest of the Anezina family for such a memorable stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in "Stavros" which had a giant balcony upstairs

As has been said in earlier reviews, Anezina is a family business. It is well run, well appointed and made my birthday trip a really enjoyable one. A time-share exchange, we were looking for something not too touristy and found this an excellent venue. Going so early in the season meant there were only a few people at the resort and eight of us, guided by Stavros - the owner's son - went on a day tour of the island. It packed a lot into the day. We climbed up to a monastery at the top of a hill and had some fantastic views from up there. We went to the idyllic town of Naoussa and wandered round the harbour. On another day six of us took a Greek Cookery Masterclass with Maria - the owner. We created a meal, which we actually ate and survived. It was fun to do and tasted great. We have even tried to replicate this at home. It's not quite the same without the sun. The apartment we had was big and comfortable. The large terrace was a suntrap. It's the place to go if you want to relax, yet there is sufficient to do, if you want to wind surf or swim in the pool or in the sea. There's a bus which isn't frequent, but costs very little to visit other places: Naoussa, Parikia or Lefkes, without leaving the island. We didn't have a car and we didn't need one. The birthday meal by the way was filled with my favourite Greek foods and done in a different way. Oh and Parian wine is a must. I hope you enjoy the place as much as we did.

DELICIOUS, animal friendly, cosy place. Loved it!!

We stayed at Anezina Village for a week in July, having exchanged it for a timeshare in the US. We were so happy that we chose this simple, pretty complex instead of a touristy resort. Anezina is a family business run by Maria, whose grew up at the hotel as her parents ran it originally, and her son Stavros. Units are simple but clean and functional, though they have the luxurious aspect of having marble floors from the ubiquitous Parian marble, renowned for its translucent qualities. The restaurant and common area are lovely and we ate some of the best food ever -- especially at the weekly Greek night, when a buffet followed by several meat and dessert courses will challenge even the hardiest eaters. And the OLIVE OIL! When I asked Stavros where the olive oil came from, he pointed to the garden and said "From that tree." We were the only Americans at the resort; most guests are Greeks who return year after year. The Greeks and other guests -- mostly British or Scandinavian -- couldn't have been friendlier, and by the end of the week we all knew each other. If you are into major American style luxury, this place is not for you...but if you want an authentic Greek experience and friendly hosts, I highly recommend this resort. We found Paros to be a charming, quiet island with beautiful vistas and excellent opportunities for swimming and walking. A good place for an active vacation.

Room Tip: As for a second-story apartment; you can see the sea from the balcony.
