We spent several weeks during the summer of 2017 in this beautiful house - having various friends join us for a week or two at a time. The location of the house is fabulous, in the hills above Alyki, with no immediate neighbors, surrounded by a garden with a great diversity of trees, and above all with a spectacular view over the Aegean sea and Antiparos and other islands.
The house is extremely well designed, very spacious and well equipped, beyond what is normally available in a vacation home. And the view from the main terrasse, especially at sunset, is unforgettable!!!
The owners, Sophie and Michael, living next to the house, are very discreet, but always available when needed, also providing great tips for excursions and festivals on Paros. From our initial contact for booking a few months ago to the departure at the end of our stay, it was a smooth and very pleasant experience, which all of us will remember with great fondness. The perfect place to meet up with family and friends for a wonderful Greek vacation in stunning surroundings!!!
The place is located five minutes away from the coast (by car).
From there you can reach every place easily and still have your privacy.
The rooms are bright and light-flooded.
Every morning, when you wake up and open the curtains, you can feel the energy of the new day coming. At least, i felt like that.
If you want to enjoy your wine or beer with a beautiful sunset, you can do that on the big terrace, surrounded by a large garden with exotic plants.
I was there in October and could still go into the water.
That's also the reason why i loved it so much! No place was packed of tourists, you had the beach for yourself and could decide where to make a stop for a sunbath.
What else to say?
If you want to meet two great hosts, you should meet Michael and Sophie.
You will gain two new friends, who try to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Apart from that, they will provide you with insider tips regarding the best local spots of the island.
As Michael is also a multilingual tour guide, you can book him for some day trips to the other islands, if you like.
Enjoy your stay, guys! You will not regret it.
The location is absolutely perfect, secluded with expansive views out of the sea and only a short ride by car or scooter into the main town with plenty of smaller villages close by. All the amenities work and the building is modern, including tv, stereo and swimming pool. The staff are friendly, helpful and accomodating in every way.

This was one of the most beautiful and comfortable homes we have ever rented. From the beginning, interacting with Michael (and Sophia) was a great process. I received responses very quickly and all directions and details were extremely easy to follow.
Once we were at house, it was heaven! The living room and kitchen are beautiful—nice high ceilings, windows everywhere, and all modern appliances. The bedrooms were all very clean, had super comfortable beds, and also had amazing windows and views. The bathrooms were beautifully designed with the master having one of the most heavenly showers I have ever been in!
If this all was not enough, the outside area was unbelievable! The panoramic view of the surrounding islands seems to never end. We loved sitting at the table here and probably spent most of our time on Paros in this place, eating, cooking, barbecuing, talking, laughing, and just appreciating this beautiful house and island!
It’s also very easy to explore the island from here with some beautiful beaches and lovely town of Aliki being only about 5 minutes away.
In the end, this was a place that I truly felt was home! Thank you Michael and Sophie for sharing your beautiful place and I was so happy to be renting from such great people!
