Are you looking for an authentic island house to rent?

JOYANNE is a perfect example of a typical Aegean island house. It has been owned by us for nearly 40 years and sympathetically restored and fully modernised so as to retain features associated with the architectural culture of Paros.

Interaction with guests
We have a local lady agent who will always meet guests at the port and walk them to our house. Her name is Lori and she is available at all reasonable times to help out with any problems which might arise and she will change bed sheets every week.
There is a washing machine in the house but it is for use by our house-keeper only. Washing of clothes can be arranged however.

Easy access to buses and ferries. Very friendly and helpful locals. Wide variety of places to eat. Accommodation very comfortable and nicely located in old town. Perfect for a short or long term stay. Very impressed that English was spoken by everyone. Many thanks to Lori (landlady) for her help and availability. Would definitely stay here again.

Management response:

Dear Wendy - thank you for your review and I'm so pleased your stay was a happy one. Paros is a very special place and so is Lori. Best wishes, Martin

So, we came back again!!! This was our 3rd stay at this lovely house and the best yet. Previously we had rated it 4 stars, but this time, it deserved a 5 star review. The owners have really responded to feedback from customers, with new furniture and a new kitchen. This has made a massive difference to the feel of...

About the neighbourhood
PARIKIA is a bustling small town, compact, but with good road links and excellent bus services. It is the transport hub of the Aegean with ferries calling daily for many other islands. But within a few minutes walk there are long, quiet sandy beaches with very safe swimming. All over the island there are historic buildings and sites, in particular the Church of One Hundred Doors in Parikia which is 1,500 years old.
