An introduction to Naousa Villa

How would you describe Naousa Villa in a nutshell?

Naousa Villa is a beautifully restored villa with a saltwater pool overlooking the sea. It is set among exotic Mediterranean gardens on the edge of the historic village of Naousa on Paros island. It has been designed with a contemporary interior that retains the simplicity of local traditions. 

What is the story behind Naousa Villa and your inspiration to create it?

This is the family house that my parents stayed in over many years of visiting Paros. When we purchased the land, there was a one-level house on it with a large amount of land relative to the village. This is quite rare in Naousa, as most of the houses are small and positioned right next to one another. We decided to add an extra floor to get the panoramic views across the village and the bay. 

How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design of Naousa Villa?

We work as architects and furniture designers in Paris, so we did all of the interior design ourselves. We were inspired by the context and what was local while also bringing a contemporary touch. Most of the buildings in Naousa are protected, so you’re limited in terms of what you can do architecturally. 

As a result, most of our contemporary interventions were in the interior — the fireplace, the pivoting oak doors and the sliding doors — as well as in the design of the swimming pool. In the bathrooms, we designed washbasins using beautiful marble from different parts of Greece. There’s a roughness, which is part of the Cycladic identity, but also a sophistication in the contemporary décor. 

For the garden, we worked with a French landscape designer who specialises in creating dense, arid gardens. We are excited as it grows and matures over time. 

The house combines traditional Cycladic architecture with contemporary interior design and decoration; inspired by Californian modernism, Scandinavian and Japanese design, and the Art Déco and Arts & Crafts movements. Noble building materials, such as chestnut wood beams, extra-large flagstone floors and precious Greek marbles, feature throughout the house, giving an understated, timeless sense of luxury and elegance.

Naousa Villa rooms & rates

On the lower level are two bedrooms — one is a little smaller and the other is designed across two split levels. All of the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and a private patio area and we have tried to position them at the maximum distance from one another to ensure an intimate atmosphere. It means that families or friends staying can spend time together but also have privacy. 

On the upper level is another bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, a terrace and views of the sea. The kitchen is also upstairs and is connected to an outdoor dining terrace with sweeping views over the bay of Naousa. It has an indoor/outdoor feel due to the bamboo shading of the roof. The terrace features a large table that seats six comfortably and there is an outdoor lounge space, perfect for cocktail hour or post-dinner discussion. The adjacent kitchen opens directly onto the dining area and is completed by an outdoor kitchenette.

There’s also an outdoor living space and stairs leading up to the rooftop where you feel like you are on top of the world. As we are facing west, we get really nice sunsets and golden light streaming into the house in the late afternoon. 

The village size garden that envelopes the house is a fragrant sanctuary of Mediterranean plants, herbs and citruses. Certainly, however, the swimming pool takes the spotlight and has built-in benches and ledges as well as two sun chairs for lounging and sunbathing. There is also an outdoor shower to wash off before and after swims.

Naousa must be one of the most charming seaside villages of all Greece. The Old Port and its Venetian Fort are emblematic of the village which is quiet in the day and buzzes in the evening.

Within a 5-10 minute drive are some of the most beautiful beaches of the island including Santa Maria, Lageri (naturist beach), Kolymbithres and Monastiri. In high season, the last three beaches are accessible by a fishing boat that leaves regularly from the port of Naousa. There are so many beaches to explore on the island.

Directly across the bay are a natural park with several secluded beaches and a beautiful lighthouse that I like to visit.

Paros also has so many little villages to explore. When driving around the island, you’ll encounter a village every 15 minutes, each of which has restaurants and cafes. If you prefer to walk, there are also several trails that take in the island’s nature. The littoral trails often have hidden coves for a dip to cool off and enjoy a moment alone on this island paradise.

Kite surfing, windsurfing, snorkeling, diving, sailing, stand-up paddling, kayaking, jet skiing and other water-borne activities are all possible and there are a number of well-equipped establishments to meet the needs of beginners through to experienced.

And of course, you can wander through the charming villages of Parikia and Naousa where there are a number of chic boutiques, wine bars, restaurants and cafés of good repute scattered throughout the typical Cycladic streets, shaded by bougainvillea and grapevines.

From June until October one can enjoy the Festival at the Park summer program at the Archilocus outdoor theatre on the Ai Yiannis Detis Peninsula with various performances, concerts, opera, ballet and cinema.

We are of course happy to help organise any activity or excursion; vehicle rentals, boat and yacht charter, fishing trips, helicopter rides, yoga, pilates, massages, cooking classes, winery tours, and so on.

The location of Naousa Villa

Paros truly is a magical island that has everything one could ask for from a Mediterranean getaway: a diverse landscape of rolling hills dotted with olive trees and prairie fields, dramatic cliffs, and numerous pristine beaches and coves to swim at.

Naousa is a traditional fishing village around 20 minutes from Parikia with the port and 30 minutes from Paros Airport. Naousa Villa is located on the edge of the village, which really is the perfect location. The village has several bakeries, butcheries, wine caves, supermarkets, organic food shops with local farm produce, restaurants, bars, boutiques, all within walking distance.

There are three different beaches in the village, all of which are less than five minutes’ walk from Naousa Villa and there’s also a natural rock pool where you can swim. Naousa is a pedestrianized village, so it’s not possible to drive inside. But as we are on the edge, we conveniently have a garage you can access and park your car.

Naousa has lots of charm, with small boats bobbing in the bay, and it tends to be very quiet during the day. In the evenings, people come from around the island and other islands to dine here as the village has very nice restaurants. 

Paros has a very central position in the Cyclades and it’s really easy to get to other islands. There are good ferry connections (Mykonos is just 30 minutes away) and it’s an easy island to explore. 

When is the best time to visit Cyclades?

For me, it’s the off-season months of May/June and September/October. The weather is comfortable and it’s quieter. If you prefer a more animated atmosphere, then I’d recommend the summer months of July and August. I also like Easter because of the Greek Orthodox processions and rituals taking place. 

From November to March, it’s quiet on the island, even though there are people living here year-round. In my experience, most people want a bit more animation than you’ll experience at this time.
