Paros , Greece

A week of Swimming in the Aegean, hiking, eating and cooking.

I’d like to introduce you to Paros, Greece and one of my favorite places in the world.

Margarita Studios is in the village of Ambelas, on Paros in the Aegean.

It’s simple but oh so comfortable and welcoming. Best food on the island and a 10 min walk to some lovely coastal swimming. We’re a short hike to Naoussa for shopping. We’re a short hike to Taos for some yoga. We have a myriad of beaches to sample and afternoons and evenings to relax and cook.

Included is double occupancy room, 3 dinners and all breakfasts.

Also included is open water instruction as well as 3 -45 min pool lessons.

Not included is transport to the island, but once you’re there we’ve got you covered.

A Price TBD but hoping to keep it at around $1200.00

It’s a long way to go so I suggest planning an extra day or two on the islands or in Athens.

Hope you can join me.
