“Just Great! Explore the resort especially the narrow streets.”
Reviewed July 5, 2011

Just returned from a lovely 2 weeks at Aleka's in Parga. After reading some of the previous reviews about the location of these apartments I was a bit worried, however I can honestly say I needn't have had any concerns at all. We were greeted by Aleka who was very welcoming she showed us round the apartment, which was spacious, spotless and very well equiped. The maid came in 6 out of 7 days sheets and towels changed regularly. The apartments are set just above the main road but the road noise just isn't a problem it's not exactly a busy road. As for the "hill" again we didn't find this a problem and if anything the location was perfect close enough to the centre but far enough away not to get disturbed and was particularly nice in the evenings catching the last of the days sunshine whilst sipping on a cold glass of wine. Parga is great it's not a huge resort but seems to have so much variety, the Harbour is alive at night, perfect for people watching whilst enjoying the Greek food and wine but explore because you can find some lovely taverna's down the narrow streets. There are also tavernas above Valtos beach which are some of the best we have eaten at in Greece, you may have to wait for you food but at least you know it's been cooked well, and after all you are in Greece relax, sit back and enjoy.

Booked through Monarch Holidays (Cosmos).
Plane like a cattle truck but when we arrived at Preveza Airport the journey faded away.
Great panoramic views on the coach transfers to Parga with a very good rep highlighting the history of the area.
Aleka Studios very clean and the views are second to none from the first floor balcony.
Good maid service and place kept spotless.
Greeted by the owner who made us feel welcome but disappointingly did not see her for the rest of the week. Would recommend air from June onwards as the temperatures really rise - we tried to but could not get hold of the owner.
The piano practice each morning gets a bit monotonous from below.
The worst part of the Aleka is the location at the top of a hill which after either a warm day or good meal with a few drinks is the last thing you want to climb back up.
We ended up using taxi most evenings at 4euros plus the expected tip and only one young driver will deliver you right to the door - none of the older ones attempt the last past of the slope!
All in all you get what you pay for and this was good value for the cost of the holiday.

Location - On road to Anthoussa just up from the cemetary. It`s a quieter part of town and although set up from the road the traffic is minimal and extremely quiet day and night. Walking down is 5-6 minutes and back up from the taxi rank in the centre of town takes 10 minutes at snail pace. If you complain about the slight gradient then it`s time you went to the doctors ! There are 2 alternative paths, one oppsite and one by the gravestones, both a slight bit quicker and an alternative in daylight hours. Although people seem to ask for top floor studios ( including us ) for the view, I gather it isn`t all that exciting and the ground floor ones have bigger terraces and are sheltered from what little traffic noise there is. The studios are massive and modern by Greek standards with comfy king size beds, good kitchen facilities. lots of storage/wardrobe space and 10 out 0f 10 from my wife for having dressing table with mirror, light and electric sockets all close at hand. French doors to balcony/patio and rear entrance doors are upvc and therefor soundproof and bugproof. Aircon and deposit box came to 50 euro for the week ( a must for me who gets eaten alive by the mosies ). Aleka lives in, and don`t worry about the piano playing, you should be awake by 8.00 am anyway and you can hardly hear it. Aleka herself is very pleasant and very forthcoming ( we actually very rarely saw her ). My one complaint, although it isn`t one really, is on arrival we did not have a TV as she explained it had broken down and a new one would be there in a couple of days.....it never arrived ( room105 ). It would never have been switched on anyway ! I say do away with T.V`s and lets have the safety deposit box free. Unless I find something exceptional we will return. P.S. booked with monarch holidays, very good deal.

This is a mixed bag.. on one hand it's the best standard of room we're seen in Greece, large double bed spacious room, lovely accomodation, spacious, clean, modern and stylish, but unfortunately the owner lives with her kids in actual rooms in the building, and they have a piano! if this doesn't bother you this will be a fabulous holiday, but perhaps you may want to sleep after 8 a.m. or nap on a hot afternoon, without repetitive piano practice, the odd banging of a drum, loud T.V. and/or radio and gereral noise. Also when will it become acceptable internationally to have Do Not Disturb signs, so you don't have to call to someone after they open your door despite your sleepy protestations, and also, sleeping with a fridge in a room will never be easy... unless you do in general.
It really is a terrible shame, because, the noise and that alone is really it's pitfall, otherwise it'd be almost perfect.... oh the hill would be a bit difficult in hot weather, it's not that long, but with mobility problems, i wouldn't recommend it.

Aleca's was a delight - set back away from the town centre, but only a short walk (uphill on the way back but not strenuous). Great views overlooking the sea and the town. Some parking at the back. Rooms are very good for Greece - large studio. King size bed and nice pillows make a difference, as does the cubicled shower.

Aleca herself was very friendly and approachable, we were welcomed with a bottle of wine.

This was an ideal base for Parga, amongst the olives groves, peaceful and quiet.

We chose the Aleca for the views and booked through Direct line Holidays. We were not to worried about the lack of a pool as we were told we would be able to use the pools in the local hotels.
Upon booking we requested a 3rd floor apartment as they were the ones with a harbour view. However when we arrived we has a ground floor apartment with a view of a lemon tree. Direct line did not pass on our request to Aleca. This really upset me and the Lovely Aleca the owner said that she could move us to the 2nd floor in a few days. We decided to stay put as we soon discovered that there is a large communal balcony with sating and views in the 2nd floor.. The apartments were the biggest and the most well equipped we had stayed in . The owner is lovely and the Maid service is fantastic.
Don't be put off by the mention in other reviews of the long steep hill to the apartments from he town. I really is not that bad. I am a slow walker and managed the hill with no problem.
The best Bakers in town is by far the local traditional bakers down the hill turn right at the 1st supermarket and it is n the left just past the hotel. Bread @ 80cents a loaf.
Take plenty of tea bags and coffee as these were so expensive @£4.50 FOR 40 .
We were upset that the resort was closing down. the pools were all empty, the water taxis had stopped running and there were no tours ruining. but holiday companies are still booking till the end of October. We had 4 days of really bad weather.
Parga in itself has so much to offer . Would we go back? yes we would. Would we choose to stay in the Aleca? YES

Lovely studios, spacious and very clean. Situated above a main road, although the double glazing keeps out the traffic noise.
I was surprised to see reviews recommend the accomodation for young singles and families with small children. It is much better suited to people over thirty and families with teenagers due to the distance from the beach and harbour front, a long, steep walk with a pushchair or a hangover. The owner is very friendly and will go out of her way to be helpful.

  • Liked — The spacious rooms and friendly welcome.
  • Disliked — Long steep walk from beach but it's ok for anyone of reasonable fitness, regardless of age.
