The villa is located half way between Agia Irini and Pounta, on a quiet hill called Kaminakia, overlooking the bay of Agia Irini and Antiparos.
The location is very peaceful, has exquisite beaches nearby and allows for easy access to the island of Antiparos, a 10 min ferry trip.
A convenient path from the house will lead you straight to a small private beach; the sea is only 150m away!
The villa is situated 7km from Paroikia port (main access point to Paros island through sea), 19km from Naoussa and 1.5km from Pounta port (where visitors can take the ferry to visit the island of Antiparos).
For.... water sports' lovers, Pounta, the region around the port of Pounta, is the perfect spot, to learn or practice wind surfing, as well as the fast rising extreme sport of Kiteboarding with many training centers around!
The villa is also conveniently located near Paros' Airport (a 6.5 klm distance), and Alyki, a small and charming fishing village known for its sandy beaches and fish tavernas, ideal for families and children.
From peaceful secluded beaches to best-in class water sport activities, and easy access to the neighboring island of Antiparos, it's true that this neighborhood has something for everyone!
Bus station is at 200m from the villa.
Nearest mini market is a 4-5 min drive.
To better experience all that Paros has to offer, hiring a car is recommended.
Please keep the villa tidy. In case of damages, please report them as soon as possible so that they can be dealt with promptly. Have fun and enjoy the property as well as your stay in Paros!
We (2 people from England and 2 from new Zealand) spent 8 days at Villa Gelly on Paros. We had a wonderful time and were very sad to leave. Vasia's Mum was there to show us around. Her warmth and welcome made us feel like part of her family. (Thank you for the delicious homemade dessert, wine and fruit - there on our arrival!) We did not hire a car as we are all very happy to walk but Gelly (Vasia's Mum) did take us to the nearest supermarket for provisions and one day drove us to Lefkes - a stunning village in the central hills of Paros.
The villa is lovely and the views from the terrace are amazing. We felt very at home in this beautiful house, which is extremely well-equipped. The very short walk to the sea takes you to a small, private beach used by a few local people. Fantastic! Also, 15 minutes walk away there is a sandy beach with a small, but excellent taverna. The local bus service is also excellent - buses are on time and very reasonably priced. We explored several places on the island using public transport.
Contact with Vasia was great. She was always quick to reply and extremely helpful in answering any questions we had.
We highly recommend Villa Gelly - a peaceful place where you can relax and reflect on the good things in life. Thank Vasia and Gelly - we (the English couple) are already planning our next visit!
We just returned from staying 4 weeks at Villa Gelly and it was a fantastic month's vacation. The house is clean, well organized and very comfortable. The location of Villa Gelly is ideally located on the island, close to the larger port and also a smaller quaint village with a beautiful beach and many restaurants and tavernas. The description of the property by the hosts is very accurate but you have to stay at Villa Gelly to fully appreciate the natural beauty it affords. Although Villa Gelly is close to other villages, your time spent at the Villa is quiet, private and peaceful. Having a small beach at the end of the lane made this property especially valuable. The hosts for this property were very helpful from start to finish with great knowledge of the island and suggestions of special places to experience. We highly recommend Villa Gelly for your next trip to Paros.
Maison très belle et pratique avec plage privée galet et petits poissons accessible pour le matin tôt ou le soir tard, gâteaux et vin de paros nous attendaient a l'arrivée avec la maman de vasia.
Wonderful house with private beach couple of minutes from the garden. We were there with 9 persons (2 couples with 5 childs from 2 to 10) and it was fantastic. I totally recommend vasia's house. And her Mother was really nice to welcome us.
So sorry that I didn't have the chance to meet you but my mother told me that your family and company of friends and children were all adorable and kind, and left the house in excellent condition. I sincerely cherish the note you left. Hosting you has been a pleasure, and we truly hope to see you back!
Villa très bien située à une centaine de mètres de la mer, d'autres villas autour mais sans gêne. Coin tranquille de l'île à 5/6km de la ville principale.
Maison dans un très bon état, avec tout le confort (la clim est un vrai plus). Bref, que du bonheur, nous avons passé un moment merveilleux.
Les hôtes sont parfaits : accueil à la descente du bateau, qqs victuailles de bienvenue dans le frigo, serviable, etc.
Nous recommandons chaudement
Our stay at Vasia house was simply amazing ! It is located in a very calm area of the Island, but not far thus from main points of activity, which was absolutely perfect for us. We enjoies the little pebble beach located near the house a lot, made some delicious fishes in the barbecue and spent much time in the patio. Does anyone need anything else during holidays ? :) Besides, Vasia & her mother are terrific hosts : they helped us with the car rental, gave us much advice, and even let some delicious food specialties in the fridge for our first night. I recommend it warmly and will be very glad to go back there !
La villa è veramente splendida, comoda e molto spaziosa! Dal momento che è un po isolata dal centro abitato è necessario affittare una macchina o motorini per spostarsi! Sia Vasia sia sua mamma sono state molto gentili con noi e si sono preoccupate di organizzarci l'arrivo e la partenza dalla casa! Questa villa è ottima per gruppo di amici come noi!
