On the south part of the island, 12 km from the port of Parikia, the traditional houses «Maria's Village» are a paradise of tranquility for tired city dwellers who seek comfort and relaxation. Located in the picturesque fishing village of Aliki, away from the bustle of the island, they offer a wonderful holiday, just 50 meters from the sea.
This small complex consists of seven detached houses and is designed as a Cycladic village with flowering gardens and cobblestone paths. It is situated at a privileged position just 50 meters from the beach of the village Piso Aliki, with its crystal clear waters.
The houses are spacious and comfortable. Decorated and furnished with taste, they make the visitor feel at home. All have lovely sea views.
The family Skandali will welcome you warmly and will give you all the useful information on tours around the island as well as many useful "tips". The owners take care of the comfort of their guests, but their presence is always discreet.
Depending on the season, they will offer fresh produce from the farm (without pesticides) such as fresh vegetables, fruit, eggs, olive oil and dairy products of their own production.

We had a very nice stay in Maria's village. Maria is very welcoming and helpfull. The location is very nice in a small village on the coast with all facilities available but away from the busy parika. The house is very nice and perfect for a family. We had a nice stay.

We were at Maria's village at the beginning of August. We'd like to thank you for everything. We came back in France last week (the weather is not sunny here...) and we still have a taste of Greece : we prepared last evening a greek salad with the capers and the olive oil you gave us ! Thanks again, they're really a great place to be.
Notre séjour en Grèce avec guestinn s'est très bien passé tant à Paros qu'a Santorin, j'insiste sur la qualité de ces deux hébergements , l'accueil et la sérénité des lieux, le côté magique des maisons troglodites de Santorin... bref, c'était parfait. En ce qui concerne plus spécialement Maria's village, nous avons été conquis par la disponibilité de Maria et Mathéo, leur gentillesse, leur professionnalisme...ils ont rendu notre séjour si agréable qu'au final nous avons eu une petite préférence pour Paros. C'est aussi un lieu idéal pour des familles ou l'on se sent chez soi. Nous recommanderons vivement ces deux lieux.
Nous avons été enchantés par notre séjour à Maria's Village. La maison était très jolie, agréable et propre. L'environnement est très beau et l'emplacement très pratique. Les propriétaires ont été très accueillants et chaleureux, faisant tout leur possible pour nous faire plaisir. Nous recommanderons votre site et Maria's Village autour de nous.

Nous avons été ravis de passer 4 nuits chez Maria's village, ce fut un moment inoubliable pour toute la famille. Maria, Mateo et leurs enfants sont des hôtes d'exception, un accueil chaleureux, une générosité inoubliable avec chaque jour une surprise qui nous attendait sur notre terrasse/gîte: panier de produits de la ferme: un vrai régal! Le gîte était impeccable et la vue de la mer turquoise tout en étant près du petit port d'Alyki restera dans nos mémoires et nous avons déjà communiqué l'adresse à nos amis en France. C'était la première fois que nous testions votre label mais nous sommes des inconditionnels de gîtes de France (ou maisons d'hôtes de charme). Bravo et continuer à promouvoir ce genre d'hébergement en Grèce.
Nous sommes revenus enchantés de l'île de Paros ou nous avons été très bien reçus par Maria et son mari Mathéo, nous avons pu apprécier leur discrétion ainsi que leur professionnalisme. Quant à la maison elle nous a donné entière satisfaction.
