You’ll be counting the days until your holidays when you choose to stay in Villa Abacus, located on the south coast of Paros, one of the Cycladic islands in the Aegean Sea. Villa Abacus is a one hundred and five square metres detached two-storey villa, with magnificent sea views over the cobalt blue waters of the Aegean Sea towards the sister island of Antiparos. The villa has three spacious double bedrooms, and three bathrooms, and can comfortably accommodate up to six guests, ideal for a family or a group of friends sharing.

The villa is part of a small complex made up of six unique detached properties, located in the valley of Petaloudes, in Glisadia on the southern coastline of the beautiful Greek island of Paros. These architect-designed properties are built in the traditional Cycladic style of whitewashed stone, on the slope of a large two-acre plus estate, set in an ancient olive grove. The villas have been purposely positioned to be protected from the north winds, and maximise those enchanting turquoise Aegean Sea views. The villa interiors are light and airy, furnished with contemporary pieces, with lots of natural light-coloured woods, and decorated in a palette of crisp cool whites and soft hues of blues, which gives them a classic beach house vibe. All the villas come with independent entrances, private parking for two cars, and complimentary Wi-Fi and air conditioning throughout. Use of a shared fourteen metre by eight-metre sea view swimming pool, set in a generous five hundred square metre terrace, is included.

The pool is surrounded by sun loungers and shady parasols, and there is an adjacent relaxing lounge and bar, and changing facilities too. The villas benefit from an on-site Concierge, who can arrange anything from yacht charters, daily boat trips, and sight-seeing tours, to in-house dining, restaurant reservations, and yoga and wellness therapies. The property can be booked in advance and by prior arrangement to host social events and the wedding of your dreams. Most importantly, the nearest family-friendly sandy beach is but a short drive away.

Enter Villa Abacus at the lower level, where you will find a light and airy holiday home of open-plan living. The elegant seating area has floor-to-ceiling French doors with billowing white curtains, which lead onto the sea view terrace, and lets in lots of natural light and cooling breezes. There are two matching white sofas with blue trim and cushions, two swivel chairs, white coffee tables, and a forty-two-inch smart television. The adjacent dining area has a long wooden table and seats six guests. The white and stainless steel galley kitchen is fully equipped with all the appliances you will need to cater for a happy holiday, including a family-size fridge freezer, and that must-have Nespresso coffee maker. A bathroom completes this floor.

Take the internal staircase to the first floor, where there are three spacious beautifully appointed double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, a forty-inch smart TV, and an ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen size bed, and a sea-view furnished balcony. The third bedroom has a king-size bed and a balcony that opens onto the terrace. There is a shared bathroom with a shower, hand basin, WC, and complimentary toiletries. On this floor, there is a very useful storage room and a laundry room. Villa Abacus boasts two sea view terraces, and the lower level has direct access to the shared pool, and a soft seating area to seat six. The upper level has a relaxing lounge area and swing chair, and a dining set for six, where you can eat alfresco under a Grecian sky.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • The villa has three beautifully appointed bedrooms, all with double beds, there are no single beds, great for three couples sharing
  • Villa Akaste does not have its own pool, but it does have direct access to the large shared private pool
  • We recommend hiring a car to see all the sights you’d like to see on the island, although there is an excellent public transport system across the island

Villa Abacus is located in the stunning setting of an exclusive six-villa enclave, on the south coast of Paros, one of the Cycladic islands, in the heart of the Greek Aegean Sea. The villas are built on the slope of an ancient olive grove, with panoramic sea views as far as the eye can see. The villas are near the beautifully named Petaloudes valley, which means Valley of the Butterflies, in the area known as Glisadia. The villa is only four kilometres from the international airport of Paros, and for those who are island hopping, it is just four kilometres from the port of Pounda.

The villas are near lots of lovely sandy beaches with calm, easy entry, shallow waters, most notably the nearby secluded Paralia Agia Irini, and Kite Beach. Other recommended slightly further afield beaches include, Kolymbithres for its amazing rock formations, golden sands, and crystal clear waters, Faraggas and Monastiri especially on windy days, as they offer natural shelter, and the popular cosmopolitan Santa Maria, and Golden Beach. Take time for a day trip to the town of Parikia, the historic capital of the island, on the west coast.

Make sure you visit the fourth-century Byzantine Greek Orthodox gem of Panagia Ekatontapiliani and admire the marble screens and original icons. Walk up to the top of the town to see the Frankish castle with thick marble and rock walls, built by the Venetians in the thirteenth century. Here you will find a blue-domed church and sweeping scenic views. Visit the Archeological Museum, charting the cultural history of the island from antiquity to Ottoman times, and noted for its collection of statues. Amble down the cobbles streets, with its charming blue and white houses, and colourful overhanging bougainvillaea. Lose yourself in the labyrinth of souvenir shops selling hand-crafted artefacts, relax in a local ouzo bar, and enjoy lunch in one of the many restaurants. Hit the beaches, choose from Parikia’s laid-back white sandy beach, go slightly north to busy Lividia, or south to Delfini, set in a small cove. At the end of the day, find your spot and watch the famous sunsets, a glass of wine in hand.

Go further north to the holiday hot spot of Naousa, a picturesque fishing village, that has managed to retain its original rustic charm. Walk the maze of stone streets to discover tiny churches, admire the thirteenth-century icons in the Byzantine Museum, visit the Venetian castle, then find yourself a seafront taverna and dine off freshly caught fish. After dark Naousa is known for its nightlife, here you can dance till dawn. For those who want to get active Paros has thirty-eight hiking trails, nine running ones, and six road bike riding tours, take your pick. Go kitesurfing in Pounda, windsurfing at Golden Beach, and water skiing and wakeboarding at Naousa. Take a tour of one of the island’s many vineyards, sample the results of the harvest, and take home a bottle or two. Venture further afield with a day trip to the sister island of Antiparos, just across the water from the port of Pounda, for a fabulous laid back relaxing day seek out the beautiful beaches of Faneromeni, Agios Georgios, and Sifneikos Gialo.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

There are lots of things for your kids of all ages, to do and see on the island of Paros. Starting with the villa, there is a large shared swimming pool, in which they can swim and play on-site. The villa is within a short driving distance of many family-friendly beaches with organised facilities, cafes and bars. Particularly recommended especially for children, with easy entry shallow waters, and soft golden sands, are those on the south coast, including Kolymbithres, Golden Beach, Faragas, and Marcello.

The villa is located near Butterfly Valley, which has a family hiking trail, where your kids can spot the local flora and fauna, walk to the waterfall, and see the native flutterby in season. Other worthwhile routes with established family-friendly walks are Lefkes Valley and the Ancient Marble Quarries. For those who prefer four legs, horseback riding and lessons are available at the Kokou Horse Riding Centre and Thianos Farm. Improve their forehand with a course of tennis lessons at the Paros Tennis Club in Parikia. Get on their bikes, and cycle around the island’s well-worn routes, stopping at off-the-beaten-track villages, and discovering the real Paros. Learn the art of Greek mezes with cookery classes specially designed for kids. Take to the sea for some fun on the water with a whole host of water sports to appeal to your offspring of all ages. Swim and snorkel in the calm Aegean Sea, learn to scuba dive and discover an underwater aquatic world of colourful fish, kayak, paddleboard, and windsurf in the windy north of the island, or learn to sail and island hop to see the neighbours. Have some fun in the sun at Aquapark Paros in Naousa, slip down the thirteen slides, designed for different ages, swim in the lazy river, and enjoy the onsite amenities.

All the family will enjoy a day out at Petra Farm, ten minutes from Parikia. This organic farm has traditional Mediterranean crops including olives and grapes, as well as goats and chickens. After a tour, taste and take home the delicious delights that the farm produces. A day trip to Parikia is fabulous fun, wander the streets of the capital town, and visit the castle, churches, and museums, before enjoying the famous homemade pastries and gelato ice cream. No trip to Paros is complete without a family day at sea, whether aboard shared caiques, or you charter your own yacht with its own captain. Enjoy a lazy day, swimming, snorkelling, and sunbathing, dine aboard on homemade mezes, and then sail home as the sun sets. Take it up a notch and venture further afield with a Rib Ride island hopping tour and visit nearby Naxos. As the sun sets, take out a telescope and go gazing, there’s a whole galaxy up there, and specialists on the island will teach your kids to star spot.
