“Fantastic!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2009

Paros island, this hidden gem of the Cyclades has a gem in the small town of Naoussa, the Yades Studios. Charming, beautiful, original, spacious, done with taste. Stunning view of the whole town and the bay from the upper floors. Modern, clean, air conditioned, with all of the amenities of a modern room and beyond. (It comes with a complimentary pair of slippers for Her and for Him, changed as needed).

We stayed at Yades for 5 Days in Mid Sept – Paros being the first of 5 Cyclades Islands we visited.
This small self catering group of apartments is very well situated in an elevated, quiet location 5-10 minutes walk from the centre of the village of Naoussa and Piperi Beach.
I should imagine that in season central Naoussa will be packed and noisy – the location of this accommodation is thus ideal – close walking proximity to the beach and the village action but very little noise as it does not overlook the village centre itself... (No point in taking your car closer to the centre as there is little or no parking)

We enjoyed our walk down to the village at dusk each day , each time taking a different route through the beautiful streets and walkways , the inhabitants really take pride in the appearance and cleanliness of their buildings –the walk back a little more strenuous (probably 4 flights of stairs ) – but good for the digestion!!

Alexandros (the owners son) was available when required – there is always someone around – he was charming and most helpful when asked about island issues – the service was discrete and efficient.
We had a top floor Junior Suite in this new building, it was well equipped and comfortable (especially the bed - with beautiful linen) Alexandros , the designer of the building obviously took a great deal of care in detail and furnishings , the overall impression is perfect.

A good view of part of the town and part of Piperi beach (despite the spaghetti of telephone wires along the frontage)
This is not low-med budget accommodation however given its exclusivity , quality and comfort , I think our money was well spent.
I agree with Reissunainen that for dining Karinas Dream just down the road presented innovatine greek cuisine with a difference – and well priced! (not much of a view though- but you may get a meal with a better view @ the waterfront at 2-3 times the price)

Naoussa is a tourist jewel , great atmosphere (expensive along the water front) – the centre really comes alive at dusk , the people very friendly and we had a great deal of fun here, we will certainly be back and would in all likelihood stay at Yades again.

  • Liked — Location and stylish comfort of the accommodation
  • Disliked — The relative lack of privacy on the shared outside balcony.(2 units share balcony)

I spent a week in Naoussa and did not come across a more beautiful apartment hotel than Yades. The only thing I missed was a pool, as in June it is already very hot.

I had a junior suite, which consisted of a nicely decorated spacious room and a little kitchenette. Great for two people, perfect for one! The terrace is large with cushioned benches and chairs, and has a great view. The hotel is beautifully maintained and spotless throughout, a lot of attention to detail, including noise proof doors and modern appliances.

The reception may look shut, but people are always around, just need to pick up the phone and they will be with you within a minute. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. I hired a car and that was delivered to the hotel in 10 minutes.

The little Piperi beach down the road is ok, but like a lot of beaches in Paros, it has rocks and pebbles at the waterline so water sandals are recommended! Also, this is not a serviced beach. There is a better one on the other side of the port, but the best sandy beaches in Paros are on the opposite shore (Golden beach) accessible by car.

For me the location was not a problem, and compared to a lot of other Greek villages the climb was quite easy - in fact I was happy about the exercise.

Dining tip: Karina's Dream, just a few steps down from the hotel is a wonderful place with delicious local food and fantastic service! Another great place is Meltemi at Naoussa harbour.

My husband and I stayed at these apartments for initially 4 nights in July - we added another night to our stay as we loved it so much. The apartments were spotless and very spacious and provided everything you would need. A very nice touch was to have some water in the fridge some coffee/tea and milk and jams etc for breakfast.
The balcony was huge with plenty of seating and a lovely built-in bench seat with cushions from where to watch the sunset - perfect!
The owner was extremley helpful and went out of his way to find us accommodation on Mykonos (where we were headed next) and booked it up for us.
A recommendation: there is a fab taverna at the bottom of the hill called 'Karina's Dream' - I had the best Mousakka I have ever tasted in Greece - and I have been going to Greece for 20 years!!!
Naoussa itself is wonderful, the prettiest greek town I have seen - definately recommend.

we have spend there 9 night.
the apartments was amasing, stuff really helpful to be honest, but...
it is 300m away from the municipal beach, but vertically....
it is 400m from the city, but verticlly as well.
don't think about see view apartments. It is only small part seen.

but it is really quite and nice.

We originally booked 3 days in Yades Studio Apartments. After the first day we then booked 4 more nights. The rooms were spotless and clean. Sheets felt like they were all freshly washed. The whole place is built in a traditional style with lots of curves and in built sofa's etc. Staff were more than helpful and extremely friendly.

The only thing that I could possibly pick on is the TV had about 15 channels and 13 of them were Greek. (Funny enough!) However the reception was poor at times. However we didn't care because we spent all out time out.

* Views were excellent and I think every room looks over the beach and mountains.
* Its a maximum of 5-10 minutes by foot to the town centre.
* 5 minutes to the beach
* 20 minutes by car to the Port.

If its the first time on the island I would recommend grabbing a car or bike, roughly 20-25 euro's a day.

We are looking to go back to Paros for a month and we will be definitely staying in Yades again.

We enjoyed our stay in Yades Studio Apartment. Although the reception is closed most of the time, the staffs are very helpful, welcoming and friendly. The room is very spacious and has a huge balcony overlooking the sea. We really enjoy having a lazy morning just sitting by the big balcony and enjoying the peaceful quiet moment. I would recommend it to anymore who need a break or just to relax. The staff recommend us a really good restaurant (i think it's called sign of pisces) to go to and we have the best Pasta Mussels ever in our life. The shrimp pie and grilled octopus are awesome too. After we checked out of the apartment and waiting for the taxi to pick up in the reception, the staff offered us a bottle of cold water and chilled fruit juice as to counter the heat :) We really appreciate it. We will definitely come back and stay at this apartment again!
