Parga Beach Resort Hotel


While the Greek islands are popular for good reason, more fool anyone who overlooks the mainland. Not only does the Epirotic coastline (‘the Greek Amalfi Coast’) have colourful fishing towns, coves and white sand beaches, but there’s also great value to be had when looking beyond Corfu and Crete. There are few better examples than low-key Parga on the western coastline, whose open-sided tavernas spill out on to the streets below a medieval citadel. Parga Beach Resort has a prime location on Valtos Beach among

immaculate gardens and centuries-old olive trees. With two beach-front restaurants and a bar, food is to the fore, with savvy chefs avoiding the temptation to let buffets slip into ‘global cuisine’ and staying true to the locale with souvlaki, gyros and simply cooked fresh fish for an honest taste of the Ionian.
