Parga is justifiably referred to as the jewel of Mainland Greece. It is an incredibly beautiful town, and the most perfect place by the sea. There are very few destinations in Greece to compete with the diversity on offer in this region.
Known for its scenic beauty, Parga lies on the Ionian coast between the cities of Preveza and Igoumenitsa, uniquely combining both the mountains and the sea. Imagine the Cote d’Azur without high rise hotels, rows of millionaires’ yachts squeezed into glitzy marinas, traffic jams, crowds of people and you have a secret Greek Riviera with stunning natural scenery and wonderful beaches.
The Epiros region runs for 60 miles from the village of Sivota down to the mouth of the River Acheron. Although part of the mainland, Epiros has much more in common with the Ionian islands. The hills and mountains rising behind and the Ionian Sea and islands in front, create an impression of being cut off from the mainland world.
Built in the style of an amphitheatre, the main village of Parga sits in a wide valley with tree clad hills on either side. Parga is a perfect base for a leisurely exploration of this fascinating region, either by sea or land. Seasonal ferries and caiques run to Corfu, Paxos and Anti Paxos – or a motor boat can be hired to discover the innumerable little bays and islets in the vicinity. By car, the town of Ioannina, gateway to the Zagori and Pindos mountains, is less than an hour’s drive east through fascinating countryside on relatively traffic free and well surfaced roads. Smaller side roads lead through fertile valleys to traditional villages, far removed from tourist development, where rush hour might consist more of donkeys than cars.
