|Further details indoors|
The house is formed from a pair of small semi-detached houses which we made into one. Consequently the twin-bedded room is a through-way and there is a great deal of outdoor terrace space. The house has marble floors throughout and is furnished with Greek antiques. The kitchen area is small and on a raised split-level section of the living room. The large ground-floor double bedroom has its own sink, kettle and fridge while the the upper double bedroom reached by a steep staircase from the living room and has a French window onto its own roof terrace with separate access from the garden. The fourth bedroom is in a separate dovecote style building adjoining the dining terrace and has a bamboo ceiling and built-in small double bed.There are plenty of books including histories of Greece and the Cyclades and recent novels.
|Further details outdoors|
There are four shaded terraces, 2 in front, 2 at the back, and a further shaded pergola with a futon. As well as the dining area there are two sets of tables and chairs on the terraces, one under a palm tree, and another set on the roof terrace with a glorious sunset view.
The house is available for let only in July and August
The Aegean Islands region
The islands of the Cyclades are the tops of a submerged mountain range. Small and scattered they provide a constant backdrop wherever you look on a clear day. They are known for their benign summer climate with a fresh prevaling breeze as well as an occasional stiff wind, the Meltemi, which blows on summer afternoons in continuing brilliant sunshine, allowing Paros to host one leg of the annual World Windsurfing Championship.
The islands were the setting for an advanced Neolithic civilization, followed by Minoan, Mycenean, Archaic and Classical settllements and later occupations by Romans, Venetians and Ottomans.
Paros was one of the most prosperous Greek islands in antiquity, due to its translucent marble (which made the Venus de Milo) and its harbours. It has a splendid early Byzantine church in Parikia as well as an icon museum and an archaeological museum with finds from the island. It is a classical blue and white rocky island with diverse and intimate sand beaches, pretty hill villages and ferry connections to Antiparos and Naxos as well as day excursions to Delos, Mykonos and Santorini.
Naoussa sits on a landlocked bay with a chapel-crowned island in the middle overlooked by the ruins of a Mycenean acropolis. Its tiny inner harbour is guarded by a ruined Venetian fort, and its narrow pedestrian alleways are now full of boutiques and jewellery shops. Across the bay is a watersports park, and at Santa Maria beach, 10 minutes from f rom the house, there is wind-surfing and a diiving school.

We spent 3 wonderful weeks in this lovely house. Extensive gardens, numerous spacious terraces to use depending on the time of the day - what more do you need! We (5 adults) used this property as a ba… More

"Que du bonheur!!!"
Nous sommes arrivés un week end et avons découvert cette maison sans en croire nos yeux. Une bouteille de vin local nous attendait en signe de bienvenue avec un gentil mot. Elle est tellement grande et jolie, bien arborée que les photos du site (pourtant déjà excellentes) ne rendait pas cette qualité de prestation Située à 100 m de la mer, où nous avons pu mouiller notre bateau, la maison dispose de plusieurs chambres, d'un séjour et de plusieurs terrasses où nous prenions soit le petit déjeuner, soit le repas du midi ou du soir ou encore des apéritifs avec mezze. Les terasses ensoleillées sur le toit offre une vue magnifique. Le jardin est immense, arboré avec de magnifiques essences. La maison est du plus pur style cycladique (nous avions même le blues en la quittant).
La baie de Naoussa où se trouve la maison est superbe et la plage (quasi privée) qui se trouve en bas de la maison permet à tous de profiter au maximum de l'eau limpide.
Enfin, il faut ajouter que la communication avec la propriétaire (Deirdre, une personne charmante) a été excellente. C'était la première fois que nous louions une maison via tripadivsor et nos amis/famille sont aussi tombés sous le charme. A réitérer, peut être bien au même endroit.

This is a rare example of a holiday house that is as idyllic as the photos suggest. There was a terrace for breakfast, a terrace for lunch, a terrace for dinner and a terrace for watching the sun sink over a gin an tonic. The beach across the lane was usually empty and with the warmest sea on the island. Paros manages to indulge its tourists without harming the natural simplicity that lures them there.
