A total revamp of a jaded old property, this Design Hotel opened with a bang in 2019. Even the smallest rooms are spacious and sunny, though the pale, stripped-back interiors feel slightly soulless. It’s the common areas where this hotel really shines: a huge, sexy pool with a proper bar, a modern Mediterranean restaurant, a small gym and spa, and a brilliantly curated Anthologist gift shop.

Operated by Kanava Resorts, who also own Cosme on Paros and several leading hotels on Santorini, the service is on point and the concierge is knowledgeable.

At first, the location might seem a little scrappy, but it’s handily placed between the coves of Kolymbithres and the bars and restaurants of Naoussa (both a 10-minute drive away). The swampy beach across the road is unappealing, but most guests barely stray from the cross-shaped pool during the day.

Please note - we hope to one day have live prices for you, but for now, here are some useful links for you to compare prices...

Panagia Ekatontapiliani

Panagia Ekatontapiliani

Paros, Greek Islands, Greece[6.7 miles]

This huge church, whose name derives from the Greek for ‘100 entrances’, has architectural, artistic, and historic interest. Look out for the 11th-century frescoes and 4th-century sculptures taken from the temple of Demeter nearby. The Byzantine Museum on site has an interesting collection of icons and wood carvings.

Kiteboarding at Pounta Beach

Kiteboarding at Pounta Beach

Paros, Greek Islands, Greece[13.3 miles]

A wide, sandy beach on the narrow strait between Paros and Antiparos, Pounta is the island’s kitesurfing centre, thanks to the steady sideward winds. Even if you aren’t a kite boarder, it’s entertaining to watch the action from the comfort of a sunbed.

Portara, Temple of Apollo

Portara, Temple of Apollo

Naxos, Greek Islands, Greece[14.2 miles]

The conspicuous ‘Gate to Nowhere’ should have led to the never-completed Temple of Apollo, but today it’s is the perfect place to watch the glorious Aegean sunsets. It was allegedly built on the spot where the cad Theseus abandoned faithful Ariadne who’d helped him kill the Minotaur.

Venetian castle of Naxos

Venetian castle of Naxos

Naxos, Greek Islands, Greece[14.7 miles]

Naxos was the capital of the 13th-century Venetian conquests in the Cyclades, and the Kastro fortifications bear witness to its importance. Gothic gates, cobbled narrow streets, Roman Catholic cathedrals, mansions with heraldic coats of arms, an Ursuline school (now the Archaeological museum) – are all still lived in.
