Parga, Greece Parga, Greece

After all the concerns of the Covid-19 pandemic and whether we would ever get back to Greece, I'm pleased to say we did and had a lovely time once again in Parga!!!

The issues with completing documents prior to departure were somewhat fraught but we managed them with a bit of helpful advice from the Sunvil team. We left a message with a query and they promptly called us back in good time.

Anyway we got to Parga, after a very easy trip which was actually better than usual as there were less people everywhere. At London Gatwick they checked we had our QR codes from the PLF documentation but on arrival into Parga there was less obvious scrutiny but a great welcome nonetheless. 

Most shops and restaurants in Parga were open and functioning very similar to before the pandemic. All the waiters wore masks and there was more space between the tables in the tavernas and cafes. The beach was also quieter and sunbeds easily available and we tried out our new full-face masks and went snorkelling in the crystal clear waters.

During our holiday we had great weather despite the customary couple of short thunderstorms, excellent food (including too many cakes) and wine and enjoyed leisurely walks in the hills in the early morning. To discover and explore those 'out of the way' places we hired a couple of scooters - the perfect way to experience the real Greece. It was so good to be back in a place we both love and to be welcomed by the very friendly people of Parga.

Our Sunvil representative the delightful Debbie, was very attentive and knowledgeable, but sadly for her for now we were her only customers.

The form-filling for our return, using only our mobile phones, was more fraught than our departure but we managed and had our email QR codes with us ready to show. Although proud of our achievement, unfortunately no one looked at them at the airport either end, however we strongly advise that you complete these to avoid being denied boarding on departing the UK.

All in all a very enjoyable, and slightly unexpected holiday in this time of Covid-19, in a beautiful part of the world. A holiday in Greece is recommended and we have already booked ours for next year!

Christine and Gene stayed at the Achilleas Hotel in Parga. One of the resort's established hotels, it occupies what must be the best location, directly above Piso Krioneri beach and just a 5 minute walk from the pretty harbour.

Parga. Almost too pretty for its own good!

Picture colourful houses set against cedar trees and olive groves and overlooking a picturesque bay - welcome to Parga. Surrounded by stunning scenery, this is perfect for those who want to soak up the local sights, such as Ali Pasha Castle and the Vlachena Monastery. Parga is also blessed with some of  Greece’s most beautiful beaches, complete with powder-soft sands and clean, clear, aquamarine waters. A holiday here offers a laid-back and tranquil atmosphere with the restaurants and bars along the lively seafront adding a little sparkle as the sun goes down.
