Really like the hotel. Private balcony with a mini grape vine setup where you could pick and eat grapes. Great location, right near the ferry, the beach and the town. Easy access to buses and island transport. Would highly recommend the pension Sofia. The owners live on site and are very nice.

This was my favourite stay in all of Greece. Sofia and her husband Manuel are very welcoming and friendly. They have lovely smiles and are always asking how your stay is and if they can do anything. It always felt extremely genuine and they really want you to have a great experience there. They are more than happy to pick...

Sophie pension is a very relaxing hotel. The location is ideal for walking into town and many tavernas are on the door step. You can walk to a local beach or go further afield on the water taxis to other beaches which are lovely. Our double room number 2 was small but contained everything you needed and immaculately clean. Sati...

We travelled with our two children aged 10 and 7 years of age and we loved the hospitality we received from the owners Sofia and Manolis who ensured we always felt at home. The rooms were more than adequate, extremely quiet and always kept spotless by the excellent cleaner, and they have lovely private balconies. The property is situated within...

We only stayed here for one night as we were flying out the next morning. Emailed with Sofia prior to our arrival who was very accommodating. Met Sofia's father upon arrival who was very nice. He even drove us to the airport the following morning. Two blocks from the water. Mini-market a couple of blocks away. Parikia is a charming...

STAY HERE! Ok, now that I've gotten that out of the way, I'll tell you some reasons why. Arrival and Check In: We arrived very late because our ferry from Mykonos was delayed because of high winds. When we got off the ferry, we were pleasantly surprised to be greeted and driven to the property. It was a nice surprise...

Wonderful garden hotel in lush green oasis minutes from the port of Paros. The owners make you feel like you've arrived home with caring and wonderful relatives, without ever being intrusive. Our ferry was hours late due to high winds, and they met us with a sign at the port to take us to the hotel. Charming rooms, all with...

We loved staying at Pension Sofia. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and the place is lovely. The garden in particular makes this place stand out - it is big and beautiful, and there are several places to sit and relax or have breakfast, so it feels very private. Breakfast was freshly made and delicious, and we were served...
