My husband and I are planning on travelling early September 5n Milos, 5n Sifnos & then 5n Antiparos but now thinking of Paros (instead of Antiparos) so the research process starts again of where to stay. We loved our last Greece visit which included Naxos in 2011 with a basic but lovely 2/3 star studio with a tiny balcony overlooking Ag Georgios to enjoy a glass of wine and then a casual dinner with our feet in the sand at a friendly beach taverna so no need for 5 star resort. Pool is a bonus but not required but want a nice beach close by. A beach view is preferable but not absolutely necessary, otherwise some ambiance about the studio etc would be good (garden, nice decor etc) Looking at up to 70-80 euro max per nite if possible for mid Sept. We can increase the budget a bit if needed but expect to be out all day so not spending a lot of time in studio. We plan to eat out each nite & have basic lunch & happy to make our beakfast subject to what accommodation offers etc.
So, do we stay around Naoussa which has a good vibe or maybe a different beach area? Will we need a car like on Milo's? We will probably explore the island beaches and tavernas and the want to walk to dinner (no driving or maybe just once). So many bays, beaches and places to stay. I don't think we want to stay in Parikia. Due to international flights (not booked yet) we may have to reduce our Paros stay to 4n but not sure yet). We have fantastic tropical deserted white sandy beaches at home so looking for something differnet, the quaint relaxed Greek beach & taverna experience, beautiful views, rocks , pebbles but nice clear water. Appreciate any advice and suggestions. Thanks very much.
