With a wonderful garden, wonderful hosts, two-minutes to the beach, 5 minutes to town and excellent value for money, this is a great place to stay while in paros.

We loved our stay here - walking distance from the beach and such helpful owners who picked us up from the ferry - most helpful! Although we didn't have a view of the sea, a two minute walk to the beach meant we could spend as much time there as we wanted, or sit at one of the many beach... More

We booked our stay direct with Sofia who was very prompt in returning my emails. Arrived at the port and was met by Sofia's Husband. We thought the pension was a little out of town but were plesently surprised to only have to walk about 5 minutes to be in the centre of town. We were actually given a triple... More

Easy to see why tripadvisor devotees rave about this place. Terrific value at $40 euro a night in September. Located close enough to town and beach for easy walking, yet far enough away to avoid the madness when the ferry boats and cruise ships come in. Lovely gardens, with abundant bouganvilla offsetting the basic white wall, blue-shutter motif so common... More

Sofia and Manolis Barbaris run a genuinely friendly and welcoming hotel in the centre of town with a beautiful garden. The rooms are larger, more modern and cleaner than usual and we thought very good value for money. In addition to this we arrived towards the tail end of the busy season and their welcome was as warm as as... More

The owners, Sofia and her husband Manolo, were super nice! We felt so welcomed. Manolo picked us up from the port and dropped us off. Their garden is beautiful.. so well-kept. It felt like a second home. Upon entering our room, we were in awe of the decor and every room was decorated differently. Very neat place and we would... More

Myself, my sister and mum stayed at Pension Sophia for four nights on the recommendation of Trip Advisor's high ratings for it. It was simply excellent.

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary. It is a nice family run hotel. The place is quiet and is within walking distance of the main town.

This was one of the most beautiful settings we have been to in Greece. Large and delightful gardens, fountain and terraces in the middle of olive trees gives you the impression that you are in a 5 star resort! The owners certainly have the "green thumbs" The room we had was on the second floor facing the ocean. We could... More
