Paros is situated right in the center of the Cyclades, between Mykonos and Santorin, which are famous for their white houses, blue windows andcrystal clear water, as well as gleaming lights and beautiful little villages. Numerous little bays invite for a swim or a rest on sandy beaches.
The retreat-center Tao’s Greece rests on a hill above Ambelas, a small but serene village on the east coast of the island with a stunning view to Naxos. The village has a beautiful sandy beach and some restaurants and taverns and offers quietness to ground yourself and find inner peace. A nice walk of 20 minutes leads you from the hotel to the retreat-center.
Naoussa, a small town with a beautiful harbour, is much livelier, can be reached by a 5 minutes drive and attracts numerous visitors during summer. October in Noussa is much quieter as some of the many cafés, restaurants and shops begin to close their doors for the winter.
You can rent a car or a scooter to explore the island. Please let us know in the registration form or by email, so Tao’s can organise the car to be waiting for you upon your arrival. We recommend to rent a car to be able to explore the island. A pickup service from the harbour, the airport or the hotel will be available on request.
Little mountain villages, excavation sites, Parikia – the main town of the island with its Church of the 100 doors – remote beaches and the neighbouring island of Antiparos famous for its limestone cave are picturesque places for excursions.
