A Wonderful, Relaxing Place

I found Agrikia to be exactly like it's description; the rooms were clean and well maintained, the facilities were excellent and the location was accurately described. The garden is beautiful and contains some really interesting plants (including Swiss Cacti!). If the beach wasn't so enticing, I would have been happy to spend all day lounging on the day beds under the canopy by the palm tree.....
Marcello and Muriel are SUPERB hosts! The breakfast was good and fresh and we enjoyed several different homemade cakes each day (and got a recipe for one particular favourite) As well as providing prompt and charming service, M&M were interesting and easy to chat with.
Aliki is a small, but busy village with a good many tavernas all selling good, honest Greek food. They pretty much all have the same menu but it's all delicious and we did not have a bad meal during our two weeks there. If you are after a beach holiday then Aliki is perfect, however, if you want to see more of Paros, although the bus service is surprisingly efficient, i would recommend you hire a car so you can explore both Paros and Anti Paros at your leisure.
Two things I would do differently before I return: reserve a cab to pick me up from the port on arrival as that was a desperate scrum and we ended up almost hi-jacking a cab going to Aliki with another couple who had pre-booked. I am sure M&M would book a cab for you. I would also hire a car for my whole visit as I found sitting on the beach a tad boring after a couple of days.....
Agrikia is a charming, wonderful place and I will definately return one day!
