The house is situated within one of the most beautiful and traditional villages of Paros, Marpissa. It is 120 sqm and was re-built in 2000. It was the house of our great grand-father from 1919 till 1957 and since we inherited back in 1999, we decided to re-built it. We renovated and painted it in the Summer of 2017.
It is 10 meters away from the central square of the village and close to iconic places of the village such as the sculpture museum of Nikos Perantinos. It is 1.7 km from Logaras beach, 2.4 km from Molos beach and 15 km from Paroikia (port). There is plenty public free parking around and a bus station in 2’ walking distance.
The house has a ground floor and 2 upper floors with a bathroom in all of them. The ground floor consists of the living room, a wide kitchen, a bathroom with bathtub and double sofa-bed.
First floor has an air-conditioned room with two single beds and separate closets. There is a third single bed just outside the room with each own closet. There is a bathroom with a wash-bin and a toilet.
Second floor is the master bedroom with a double bed and two sets of closets. There is a ceiling fan that keeps the floor cool. There is also a bathroom with toilet, wash-bin and a shower. A big balcony with a beautiful view of the hill, where St Antonios monastery is situated at the top, and a view of the sea on the other side is the perfect place to relax.
Two nice outside areas on the ground floor and the second floor, where you can sit and enjoy breakfast, have a barbeque or chill at night, create an ideal combination for the perfect vacation.
