Overlooking the Bay of Faragas, this minimalist villa on Paros Island is perfect for a family holiday
For those who want to unwind in a natural setting, Villa Haroula is the ideal choice. The sunsets which can be enjoyed from the villa set the scene for a romantic dinner under the stars, while the large infinity pool is great for refreshing on sunny days.

Located in the southern part of Paros, the exterior of this six-bedroom property for rent was designed according to the traditional Greek style with geometric forms, neat lines and shining white walls.
The style of the interior preserves the Cycladic features with minimal use of furnishings and flat surfaces. Throughout the house, the white walls offset the elegant Italian furniture and the colourful art pieces that are displayed, and the large windows of the living area offer breathtaling views of the surrounding countryside.
The high arches separating the spacious, bright living room, kitchen and dining areas add an element of sophistication and elegance. The living area offers comfortable sofas and a raw-wood coffee table, a dining table and a modern, fully equipped kitchen.
The six bedrooms, with their calm ambience and designer furnishings have access to verandas which offer spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. The two independent guest houses offer the ideal environment for couples seeking privacy.

Paros has a well-deserved reputation for being a friendly island and the main port of Parikia welcomes guests with open arms. Beyond the port, the island rises gently to Mt Profitis Ilias (770 m). Paros is famous for its white marble which has contributed to the prosperity of the island since the Early Cycladic period: the famous Venus de Milo statue was carved from Parian marble, as was Napoleon’s tomb.
The other major settlement, Naousa on the north coast, is a charming resort with a colourful fishing harbour and a developing waterside lounge area that may one day rival that of Mykonos.
On the east coast is the charming, low-key resort of Piso Livadi and deep in the heart of Paros is the peaceful mountain village of Lefkes.
Close to Paros is the smaller yet charming island of Antiparos, best known for its spellbinding stalagmite-filled cave.
