My Husband and I have just returned after our 1st visit to Parga, We stayed at the Valtos Beach Hotel which was excellent. Lovely food, Lovely Family and staff and beautiful views. The dissapointment was Parga it self.
After reading reviews on this site about Parga for the last year I do not feel that they reflect what the Harbour area is really like. From reading this forum I got the impresion that the harbour was very traditional and was not at all touristy. Infact what we found was a place that was full of nothing but tourists queing around the walls to get into one of the many restaurants that lined the harbour. Tacky tourist shops selling cheap souvenirs and balloon sellers.
If you turned away and faced the sea the views were amazing and you could forget the mini 'Blackpool' that was behind you. Very dissapointed as we had looked forward to our trip but we would never return.
Also we will not take so much notice of a forum in the future as often bad reviews are removed which surely will give no one a true reflection of what a place is really like.
I do respect people's opinions and hopefully people will respect our's.
