Overview

Pool Modern Self-Catered Ideal for Kids Parking Space

The star of the show is the super spacious Villa Leonidas, situated on the south coast of the island of Paros, part of the Cyclades in the turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea. This ultra luxury two-storey detached villa is a spacious one hundred and ninety square metres, set in its own grounds with a private swimming pool and gardens. The villa enjoys uninterrupted sea views over the azure Aegean towards the sister island of Antiparos. Villa Leonidas has five spacious double bedrooms, and four bathrooms, and can comfortably accommodate up to twelve guests, ideal for a large family or 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.

Villa Leonidas is set on its own grounds, surrounded by a stone wall, and tiered terraces. Enter the villa at the upper level, where you will discover a light and airy, spacious open planned luxury holiday home. The all-white sea view lounge can seat up to twelve guests, with two comfy sofas, one of which can be made into a bed to sleep two, matching armchairs, contemporary wooden coffee tables, a forty-two-inch flat screen smart television, and an open fire for those cooler months and evenings. The adjacent elegant sea-view dining area has a table that can seat up to ten guests. The kitchen is fully equipped with built-in appliances, a family-size fridge freezer, and a must have Nespresso coffee maker. A handy guest cloakroom completes this floor. Take the internal Cycladic staircase down the lower level where there are five superbly appointed double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, a flat-screen TV, and an ensuite bathroom, with floor-to-ceiling French doors that open onto the pool terrace. The second bedroom has a queen size bed, an ensuite bathroom, and a sea-view window. The third bedroom is an ensuite twin room. The fourth bedroom has a queen size bed, and a sea view, whilst the fifth has a king-size bed and a furnished balcony. These two bedrooms share a bathroom. There is also a computer desk, shared wardrobes, storage space, and a laundry room.

Villa Leonidas takes the prize when it comes to outside living space, there are six separate alfresco areas in which you can sunbathe, wine and dine, and watch the sun sets. The upper veranda wraps around the villa and has a built-in sunbed strategically positioned with views of Antiparos. There is a twelve-seater lounge and dining area, and hammock chairs in which you can laze away the days. The lower terrace is home to an impressive fourteen square metre infinity swimming pool, there is a Jacuzzi, and a sea view soft seating area. Discover other tiers that are home to deeply cushioned sun loungers, and twelve-seater dining sets, and find that secret haven just made for two.

Villa Leonidas 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 Gialos

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 flutterbys in the 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 especially 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, Wandering 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 a shared caiques, or 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.

    on 01/08/2022

    The architecture and the design of the suites were pretty much amazing! Our suite was extremely spacious, convenient with many private relaxing areas and a marvelous infinity pool for the daily sunset moments! The hosts were uniquely generous and rather assisting in anything we asked for ! I will definitely visit the property once again soon!
