Sea, sun, and fun. The iconic triptych has been long associated with Paros holidays, ever since the whitewashed, fertile island in the middle of the Aegean was first discovered by the bohemians of the 60’s. And though nowadays the “hippie trail” has ceased to exist, Paros beaches continue to remain perhaps the most essential lure and reason for which to embark on Paros holidays.
Often dubbed as the “new Mykonos”; it has also been termed the quintessential wind -and kite-surfers’ paradise; a romantic haven for newly weds and couples; a convenient stop for Greek island hoppers; a paradisiacal, child friendly destination for families with kids; the place to be for history aficionados and nature enthusiasts.
Granted, with its paradisiacal beaches, whitewashed villages and vibrant nightlife, Paros is archetypal of the glorious Greek summer. Yet it is equally alluring throughout the four seasons. For those who don’t like the heat, nor the crowds; autumn is in fact a fantastic time to visit. Nature with its sepia hues and blooming wild flora paints a postcard perfect picture- and one that you’ve most likely not seen nor imagined, at that! The weather is still mild, allowing for long walks, cycling and riding- even swimming for the bravehearted!- while the annual grape harvest is followed up by days of zestful local celebrations-in which you’re most cordially invited to partake.
Tranquil or cosmopolitan beaches in technicolor blue and gold; whitewashed picturesque villages; romantic sunsets; glamorous lounge bars and vibrant clubs; traditional tavernas and elegant contemporary restaurants; ancient monuments, monasteries and churches; age old legends, culture and mystique; luxury resorts and suites in Paros; designer shops filled with all kinds of treasures. Our island indeed has it all.
Great food is amongst the most essential holiday delights: Boasting a distinctly epicurean philosophy, at Yria Boutique Hotel & Spa in Paros island, we take matters of the palate very seriously. That is why our gastronomic offerings are one of the major fortes of our hotel; indeed renowned throughout Paros island; and a reason to visit Yria whether you’re a resident or not. But it’s not in our mentality to just rest on our laurels.
Diachronically a magnet to the world’s adventurers and bon vivants, cosmopolitan Paros island, is at its most alluring at Easter, when ageless mystique and time honored customs blend with springtime’s abundant beauty.
