Sailing Naoussa

It’s a late November afternoon, wind gets a bit stronger and we get a call from our friends at Naoussa Sailing Team for an afternoon adventure! And of course we are up for it.

By this time wind is perfect for some sailing, the temperature is great and the last bit of sunlight for the day makes the bay and Naoussa at the background look even more magical!

NOTES

Naoussa Sailing Team offers classes for children and adults at the beach of Kolimpithres in the bay of Naoussa, from March to December.

A Relaxing Day at Glyfa

After a couple of hours under the sun and a bit of swimming, we moved to the restaurant of the area, only meters away from the beach.

Greek Design on the Island – Clothing

Today we are going shopping in Naoussa. We are after some contemporary greek creations.

Greek Design on the Island – Accessories

Accesories, objects and jewelry which combine simplicity and forms deriving directly from the rich greek tradition

Sea kayaking around Antiparos

The sea was calm, so paddling was easy and relaxing, while the proximity to the surface of the sea gave us a unique perspective of the wonderfully blue waters of the Aegean.

Hiking & Herbs

The mountains of Paros are full of nature’s pharmacy’s pure products.

Hiking around the lighthouse

The monumental rock formations together with the low vegetation of wildflowers, herbs and bushes form a magical setting for an afternoon walk.

Coffee & Snack in Naoussa

After finishing off what has to be done, it ‘s time for a coffee and a quick snack, before leaving the village.

Walking around Ampelas

… a little fishermen village, on the eastern coast of Paros.

Day cruise to Koufonisia

The flirt between the yellowy rocks of the islands and the clear waters of the Aegean sea results to various turquoise hidden paradises.

Paros on a motorbike

Getting around Paros by bike is easy, since its morphology and roads make it one of the most accesible and bike friendly islands.
