"There’s isn’t enough time in a life to see all the thousands of gorgeous islands across Europe. But those looking for the best of the best should head to the Greek island of Páros, according to the readers of Travel + Leisure, who voted it the best in Europe in their annual World’s Best Awards," said Cailey Rizzo, Travel + Leisure July 2018.
Well, although we are pretty sure Wanderlista would have liked to keep it a best-kept secret forever, "I am elated to see one of my darling Greek islands make the World's Best list," said Andria Mitsakos, founder of Wanderlista. "You see, I’ve come to realize that, over the years, if I really love a place, then I’ll leave a bag of clothes there. Such is the case with the Cycladic island of Paros, which I did the first time I visited there a few years ago. What was to be a two-day stay at my dear friend Chef Argiro Barbarigou's hometown turned into a yearly visit - and yes, although I continue to leave some article of clothing behind, I always pick up new discoveries, meet new friends and create more memories."
Her third trip to Paros this year, with the most recent the day after her birthday in July, was part of an island-hopping jaunt to the Cycladic islands with friends. Paros was certainly on Wanderlista's itinerary and on top of that radar, in perfect Cycladic tradition with contemporary architectural style blending harmoniously within its environs, was Mr & Mrs White Paros - a luxury hotel in the quaint village of Naousa in Paros, Greece, half a mile near Agioi Anargyroi beach.
As part of the multi-awarded Greek hotel management company HotelBrain's portfolio, Mr. & Mrs. White Paros features sea view suites, two-floor villas and rooms with impressive garden and pool views. The hotel also boasts three freshwater swimming pools, a restaurant renowned for its breakfast, a Pool Bar and Lounge offering drinks, cocktails, Greek bites and other international delicacies and a Shisha bar.
Take the jaunt with us this Wander Wednesday as we explore Wanderlista' stay at the instagrammable Mr. & Mrs White Paros.
Travelers can start their Páros trip in Naousa, a traditional fishing village that’s considered to have one of the most beautiful ports in Greece. The town’s whitewashed alleyways are some of the most picturesque places to enjoy a glass of ouzo.
