I can't deny that Greece is in my top 3 of favourite destinations. I’ve visited many Greek islands, but the mainland not so much. That is why I had decided to spend the day exploring the picturesque alleys of Parga.
I found an authentic tavern by the water where I enjoyed a Greek salad. I looked around and saw all kinds of cottages in different colours. What a cosy town! ‘Those are Venetian cottages’, the friendly waiter told me as he approached my table. ‘Would you like anything else?’ I asked him to recommend his favourite beaches in the area. He smiled, started talking and I wrote everything down in my notebook.
It wasn’t long before I found myself in a water taxi on my way to Valtos Beach, as recommended by the Greek waiter. It was a short journey and I jumped into the sea the second we arrived at the beach. How refreshing! I found a beach bar, ordered iced coffee and was served by yet another friendly man. We struck up a conversation and he asked me where I’d be staying that night. ‘That’s a good question’, I replied laughing. The waiter went inside and returned with a map. Villa Ioanna’, I read out loud. ‘It was once built by Dutch owners and will be a perfect place for you to unwind’, he said. Let me take you there!
When we arrived at Villa Ioanna, I was received by the Greek couple Fotis and Riki. They took me to the apartment and I got comfy on the porch. Before Fotis and Riki walked away, Riki said: ‘Stay as long as you want, Eliza.’ A pleasant prospect as I listened to the sound of water from a stream and the chirping sound of crickets. Yes, the waiter was right! This is a perfect spot to unwind.
