About Parga

Northern Greece has yet to become a much talked about holiday destination, but it's an interesting region, as well as being beautifully perched on the edges of the Mediterranean. It does however have excellent tourist infrastructure so when it comes to accommodation the best places to stay in Parga come in all price ranges from campsites to smart hotels. Parga is undoubtedly a beautiful little resort town, but it looks much more like a little red-roofed Italian town, rather than the square whitewashed buildings people think of as being typically Greek. As is the norm the castle sits at the top of the hill and charming little alleyways run downwards to the shops, homes, bars and restaurants, and the sea. In the past the majority of visitors have been Greek, but word of its beauty is spreading.

What Not To Miss

  • Parga's castle/ fortress sits on a headland just to the west of the town, keeping watch over things. It dates from the 14th Century and has seen much use - this little hamlet has been battered by pirates several times over.
  • The renowned beaches are well kept and some have good facilities, including, Kironeri Beach, right by the town centre, Valtos Beach, on the other side of the castle, and further to the west Lichnos Beach. If you don't fancy the walk there are regular boats ferrying people to and from these main beaches.
  • Just west of the town is a second castle, Ali Pasha castle, from which Ali Pasha tried to destroy Parga's castle using cannons. If it's a clear day you can see all the way to Corfu from here! The walk back to Parga is through orchards and olive groves.
  • Enjoy a plethora of activities at the Acheron River, with everything from rafting to zip lining all set in breathtaking surroundings that contrast wonderfully with Parga's beaches

Whilst Parga is still relatively unknown compared to neighbouring holiday destinations - the best places to stay in Parga are still in hot demand, especially in the peak months, so book quickly to avoid missing your dream hotel.

For luxury

  • The Salvator Hotel Villas & Spa is a great choice for couples or groups, with villas (with fully equipped kitchens and private pools) sleeping up to five. Stylish and modern, the mood and decor here are bright and friendly, plus there's a poolside restaurant serving modern Greek cuisine and a spoiling spa for total relaxation.
