PAROS

Join us for a 7-night stay in an exclusive and spectacular private villa on Paros, one of the many beautiful islands in the Cyclades.

You have the option to arrive a day or more before our Takeover and spend the time in Athens, or you can arrive on September 23 in the morning and we will catch an afternoon flight to Paros together. Once we arrive in Paros, we will transfer to our villa for check in and a group dinner.

We will spend our days relaxing in this island that has all the amenities and facilities that you want but still retains its small Greek Island charm and hospitality. You have the option to relax by the clothing-optional pool in our private villa or explore all the fun activities Paros has to offer, plus we will have day trips to nearby islands like Nexus, Mykonos, etc.

For our Paros accommodation, we are excited to stay at an exclusive group of three private villas for a full Takeover! This secluded and tranquil property has an infinity pool with stunning panoramic views over the Aegean Sea. 

Villa Acqua has four bedrooms, Villa Moonlight has five bedrooms, and Villa Oliviers have three bedrooms. All bedrooms are air-conditioned and have Queen beds, with ensuite bathrooms with showers, while some bedrooms have a balcony [+US$125/C$175]. We will have a designated Playroom with a Sybian for you to use.

Please note: Room decor may not be exact and subject to change

You get to choose which villa you like to stay in or if you have no preference, you will be assigned a room. Breakfast is included and we will have snacks and beverages during our stay. There is a full kitchen in each villa, so you are welcome to pick up any groceries for meals plus there is the option of going out for dinner each night.

Since we are in Paros for a week, we will have a vehicle with a driver to drive you anywhere on the island. We also have a fun itinerary planned with both included and optional activities, such as an Island Hopping Boat Excursion to some of the nearby islands, a historic tour around Paros and its ruins, or hang out at one of the many beautiful beaches. All the options will be available in June 2020 for you to book.

At the end of our Takeover, we will take the ferry, a ubiquitous mode of transportation of the Greek Islands, to Athens, home of the Acropolis and Parthenon, where we will say good bye or you can join us for the Greek Isles Pre-Cruise Package for some Pre-Cruise fun with those who have booked the sold-out Desire Greek Isles Cruise!
