Feel like home
Right in the heart of the Cyclades complex, is the magnificent island of Paros. We established Alea in Naousa, the medieval and traditional white-washed fishing village, the most popular destination on Paros. Famous for its picturesque architecture, colorful small streets, numerous extraordinary beaches that surround it, the exquisite cuisine and its lively nightlife, Naousa is the must go destination when you visit Paros.
A family run establishment, Alea is a small complex of traditional apartments. Here you will have a chance to relax, close to the sea and enjoy the island, the sun and Filoxenia, the greek culture of hospitality and friendly atmosphere. And ofcourse you are welcome to lots of gaming hours with more than a thousand boardgames in our collection!
The Varrias Family as well as the staff will do its best to guarantee that your holiday at Alea Paros will be one to remember.

The definition of Greek HOSPITALITY! Simos & Maria looked after us like family. Clean and spacious rooms. Beach views. Perfect location, a walking stroll to Nausa, and with two beaches nearby (Little Piperi was just the best!). Exceptional breakfast, with local foods selected on a daily basis.

This has to be one of the best accomodations I have stayed in for many reasons. It has a great location-an easy 10-15 min walk into town but far enough out that you can get some peace and quiet, has as small rock beach just down the street thats never busy with an amazing sunset, is right next to a bus stop that takes you directly to Parikia ferry port. The rooms are spacious, clean, have great AC (especially in summer) and comfy beds. Breakfast: Everyday you get an excellent traditional breakfast basket with locally sourced produce and Natasha who curated it explains what you are eating and is happy to provide any further beverages you may want. Simos and Maria: Simos the host and his mother Maria are accomodating and passionate about making their guests have the best stay. Providing recommendations to help you get the most out of your time on the island, giving free history lessons about Paros and if you’re lucky like we were getting a dancing lesson from Maria. I cannot express how much we enjoyed our stay in Alea and encourage others to do the same! Wewilldefinitelybeback!
We'll be glad to host you
