Our stay at the Sofia Pension came after completing an extraordinary Rick Steves' tour of Greece. This pension was highly recommended in The Lonely Planet book on Greek Islands. We were warmly welcomed by the owners, Sofia and Manolis Barbaris after arriving on the Blue Star ferry in the town of Parikia on the island of Paros. The beautiful pension,...

This little pension is situation in a yard with beautiful gardens and little sitting spots all over. Almost makes you want to stay there instead of going to the beach. My family and I were able to walk here from the ferry with all of our luggage (there was a lot) with no problem. The owner (Emanuel) was kind enough...

We stayed at Pension Sofia for 5 nights. I had picked it from the reviews (and the very reasonable off season rate) and we were not disappointed. We could not fault it. Manolis kindly picked us up from the airport (9km away) and we were in Room 9. It is the largest room there (i think) with a huge balcony...

Third time in Paros but has always been a transit place to Santorini, so decided to stay 1 night. Wrong move. Because most shops are closed for the season and the election. so its almost a ghost town. However there are still taverns to fill your stomach. The owner pick us up and i must say the hotel is cosy...

Excellent Service! The owners, Sofia & Manolis are always there for absolutely everything and anything. It was a very comfortable stay with a beautiful view of their green garden. The beach is only about 2 minutes away and can be seen from the place. It's also very close to the town centre, bus stop, supermarket and bakery. Manolis will personally...

We absolutely loved Sofia's! The owners are simply lovely people, very accommodating and they looked after us really well. They were more than happy to pick us up and drop us off at the port and added such a personal touch to drinks, breakfast etc. Very friendly people. The pension itself was also a gem. Plenty of shade in their...

We stayed at Pension Sofia for a week in June 2009. We were impressed by the fact that the owners kindly picked us up at the harbour and drove us to the hotel, although our ferry arrived very late. The room service incl new bath towels and bed linen was daily! The facilities were absolutely sufficient - a small bath,...

http://www.sofiapension-paros.com/ A great little pension in the one of Paros' bigger towns, Paroikia. Just some minutes' walk from the port, it is ideal to access the old part of the town (at night), or the port, the bus station and the taxi piazza. Sofia's husband will pick you up from the port when you arrive and will gladly take you...

Pension Sofia is a beautifully maintained pension in Paros. Sofia and her husband and great hosts. The rooms are bright and impeccable. The garden is amazing (green grass and trees in Greece in July!) and it is a treat to just relax there. Well located. Quiet but close to everything.

Lives up to it's billing and was exactly what we expected. Beautiful gardens meticulously maintained and presented. The accomodation could not be cleaner and the owners could not be more friendly and attentive, always only too happy to help. Very reasonable pricing and a truly great place to stay as a base to explore Parikia and the rest of Paros....
