Overview

About the property

Relax in the bliss of your mountain hideaway with views of 5 Cyclades islands

Α centuries-old renovated gem of a farmhouse in the mountains, for people who love nature, the tinkling music of goat bells, and each other! With spectacular views of five Cycladic Islands and the surrounding rugged hills, it is perfect for those seeking peace and a chance to hike, paint, write or think.

We've taken great care in updating two separate traditional structures surrounded by an herb garden and fig, pomegranate, almond, and olive trees. The upper cottage sleeps three (in twin beds) and has a charming kitchen. In the past, three generations of farm families lived there with 7 children each, now every detail has been impeccably and artistically designed. The lower building was the “Goat House,” and is now converted to sleep another four (2 in the queen-size bed in the master bedroom, and 2 in twins/bunks in the kids' room). This mountain retreat blends the historic with artistic design, sparkling cleanliness, and all amenities.

This is the quintessential “Old Greece,” a bit off the beaten path, but within fifteen minutes of four villages, a dozen beaches, and several delicious tavernas.

Only for those who seek magical settings.

About Alexis

We are a family with Greek roots and we make Paros our summer escape.

Why Alexis chose Paros

This is our beloved family home. We have renovated and designed it with comfort and beauty in mind. We visit every year and it is part of the wonder of our lives.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We love the tinkle of goat bells as they graze in the mountains and olive groves and relaxing in our secluded home wrapped in patios and gardens --- with thrilling views to the sea and the islands beyond.

Idyllic perch overlooking the Mediterranean

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything you could possibly want for a Greek island getaway: the property is nestled on a spot overlooking a stunning expanse of hills and sea. The two lovely adjacent buildings, decorated with sweet touches, look like they belong on a postcard, have comfy beds, a great well-equipped kitchen, and a wonderful porch that is perfect for enjoying the view (cannot say enough about the view!). And this is all just a short drive from local stores, nearby towns with great restaurants (amazing food - come prepared to eat!), and scores of beautiful beaches ranging from public, right in town, to hidden spots. A perfect day went something like this: lazy breakfast of local bread and fresh eggs on the porch, quick drive to a beach, lunch at a lovely restaurant, back home to rest (as one should!), then back out to explore a beautiful old town with winding streets and crafts, another amazing meal for dinner as the sun sets, then back to the house for a quiet night where the only sound is wind in the trees. The manager was easy to access and everything was spotless.

Beautiful Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property with a beautiful outdoor space where you can eat and relax under the stars. There are nice spaces for that afternoon siesta as well. Inside, there is a quaint but well provisioned kitchen and livingroom in the main house. The bedrooms in the other building are very nice as well. One is perfect for kids and the master suite is quaint and comfortable. The place was clean and well maintained. We enjoyed visiting a variety of beaches, touring some of the outlying towns, going over to Little Paros for pizza (and wandering about) and eating at the many fine restaurants in town. Very enjoyable!

Relaxing, Quaint Cottage with Mountain Views

  • 5 of 5

My favorite part of this rental is the wonderful patio complete with a slate table for dining out in the beautiful garden. There are also lovely spots to take that afternoon siesta, while listening to the tinkling bells of the goats on the next property over. The two cottages provide ample space for sleeping and relaxing inside as well. It is not far from stores, restaurants, and other attractions yet far enough away not be right in the middle of a lot of people. Just what we needed for rest and relaxation.

Outdoor natural elegance

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful place has become a part of my life. I am fond of even the journey up the mountainside dirt road, because of the views and the jackrabbits. The house is welcoming and has everything necessary to come and stay awhile as a base for exploring beaches and the small towns of Paros. The outdoor patios and porches are perfect for dining, reading, and napping. My time at the property was spent making meals, hiking around the mountaintop past the monastery, climbing nearby hills, or just chilling out listening to the bells of goats. I will definitely go back.

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The place is beautiful: lovely views of the sea, tinkling of goat bells, and nice spots to read and relax outside. It is very private, quiet and peaceful. There are trails and dirt roads for walking if you want to get some exercise & everything you need is a short drive away. Can't recommend it enough.

Amazing, magical place!

  • 5 of 5

The house and garden are just wonderful. I loved eating breakfast in the garden, gazing at the sea to the music of tinkling goat bells. There are multiple outside spots to hang out - perfect reading, resting, or eating. There is a beautiful view of the sea and several other islands in the distance. There are also dirt tracks and roads for walking from the house, which I enjoyed. Can't recommend it enough!

Paros sits at the center of Greece's Cycladic islands in the Aegean sea. Its immediate neighbors include the islands of Syros and Mykonos to the north; Naxos to the east; Ios and Sikinos to the south; and Antiparos and Sifnos to the west. Also to the north is the archaeological site of Delos, one of Greece's most historically significant. Paros is truly an island with something for everyone -- perfect for families with small children, older travelers, and honeymooners alike. Beyond the obvious delights of the sea and sun, visitors will discover rich historical treasures, a diversity of art galleries, and excellent locally produced food and wine.

Other Activities: Paros is internationally known for fantastic kitesurfing. Shopping.

We highly recommend booking a 4x4 vehicle in case roads are rough during your stay.
