A SOPHISTICATED ESCAPE FROM THE MAINSTREAM

Antiparos is a beautiful small island located at the heart of the Cyclades complex, very close to the known isle of Paros

INSIDE INFO

Scattered churches, stark white houses and a variety of beautiful beaches made Antiparos a very popular day trip destination. Yet the visitors were captivated by the serene landscapes and easy-going atmosphere and overtime, the island gained a reputation as an alternative vacation haven.
The main village is a charming, friendly place, built around an imposing Enetic castle. Attracting more sophisticated crowds, Antiparos is the ideal destination for those who wish to escape from the mainstream but still enjoy the peaceful landscapes and laid back lifestyle of the islands.

WE LOVE

The busy waterfront where the streets run deep inland, leading to quiet alleys with flower filled houses.
