Parga Area

Parga Area holidays

Terracotta-topped and ready to dazzle, this traditional piece of Greece has “real deal” written all over it. Think rainbow-coloured houses, chequered-cloth tavernas and swoon-worthy seafront harbours, complete with wraparound greenery. This sensational spot may be part of the marvellous mainland, but a curling coastline of bay after bay gives it an idyllic island vibe. And that’s just the start – this is a region rich in forest-backed shores and dreamy lagoons, where spectacular scenery comes as standard and adventures await. Throw in a welcome as warm as the weather and you’ve got an old-school Mediterranean stay on your hands.

HD scenery 

Forget camera filters, this region’s colour palette is off the chart. Parga Town’s buildings have an Italianate feel and come in luscious lemon yellows and stunning sky blues, while up in the old town, bougainvillea petals cascade like confetti in the wonderful warm breeze. And the beaches? Well they’re proof that all that glistens is gold.

Days of discovery

When it comes to resorts, the pretty beach of sparkling Sivota beckons, along with its promenade cafés and bars. But Parga offers so much more than just chocolate-box towns. Nature lovers, visit Acheron River’s waterside pathways, while culture fans should check out the local festivals. Sailing’s big round here too.

Nights to delight

Parga harbour calls as soon as the sun falls. The scenery is as enchanting by night as it is by day, with twinkling lights and a buzz of activity. It’s lined with traditional tavernas, chic bistros and cool little cocktail bars. Trust us, there’s plenty of choice!

Beaches

Splashing the shores with glimmering gold, this is a region rich in beaches. From low-key Lichnos, with its tree-blanket backdrop, to Valtos with its dine-al-fresco restaurants, there’s a perfectly pebbled plot with your name on it here in Parga. Spectacular scenery comes as standard round these parts.
