Imagine a tumble of colourful houses set against fragrant olive groves and overlooking an idyllic bay; now see it for real! Holidays to Parga are ideal for families and couples looking to enjoy a quiet slice of Greek hospitality. Surrounded by stunning scenery, this is perfect for those who want to soak up the local sights, such as Ali Pasha Castle and the Vlachena Monastery. However, for dedicated sun-worshippers, Parga is blessed with some Greece’s most beautiful beaches, complete with powder-soft sands and clean, clear, aquamarine waters. While Parga holidays offer a laid-back and tranquil atmosphere, the restaurants and bars along the seafront add a little sparkle as the sun goes down. With plenty to see and do, you can make your holiday to Parga as upbeat or as low-tempo as you want it to be!
Things to do
Start your holiday in Parga with a walk to Ali Pasha castle. This hilltop, Venetian castle is well worth the climb, just for the stunning views across the town. Explorers will also enjoy wandering the cobbled streets of the Old Town, where you can find a variety of shops, bars and tavernas. If you’re visiting during the summer, you’ll find plenty of beaches on which to get some serious bronzing under your belt. Lychnos Beach offers white sand and clear, turquoise waters, while Valtos Beach is the place to go, if you’re a fan of watersports.
If you want your holiday to be splashed with Mediterranean sunshine, book your break between May and September, when the temperatures creep into the high twenties.
