Bringing Your Pets To Paros, Greece !

Do you want to bring your pet along with you when you travel?

IMG_2720Here, you’ll find some useful information to better plan how to bring along your furry friend to our beautiful island Paros,Greece.

If you are considering traveling to Greece with your pet, it’s important to begin planning way ahead of your intended time of travel. Proper planning will help better prepare you and your pet for the trip, lessen the stress on both of you and provide realistic expectations of international pet travel.

Suggest you contact the airline you plan on traveling with to ask about  papers ,rules …

Have a look also at the page of Embassy of United States in Athens  about Bringing Pets to Greece

Traveling by Ferry

The ferry journey is generally considered to be easier on pets. Most of the ferry companies provide reasonable facilities and kennels and will allow you to visit your pet during the journey.

Blue Star ferries  is one of the more commonly used companies for the journey between Piraeus and Paros. This journey takes around 3hrs and a half in total, but you will be permitted to take your pet for a walk on the deck, and visit it as often as you wish during this time. Please do note, however, that you will be expected to provide food and a water bowl.

Here you can find more information about PET ACCOMMODATION on board

“A limited number of Pet cabins are available on board. It is necessary to reserve these cabins in advance. Should these be fully booked, a small number of kennels are also available. For reasons of public hygiene, pets are not allowed in cabins (other than the specially designated pet cabins), bars, restaurants and the ship’s indoor public areas. When walking on the open deck, they are required to wear muzzle and be on a leash, accompanied by a guardian. Passengers traveling with a pet should hold updated health documents for their pet and are responsible for the pet’s care, safety and hygiene.

Special areas for the pets’ daily hygiene are available on board. Unaccompanied pets are not accepted for embarkation”

So, there’s no need to feel guilty for leaving your furry family member at home as our “Margarita Studios” family boutique style hotel & restaurant are PET FRIENDLY.

Margarita Studios features pet friendly accommodations and plenty of dog walking space, special water bowls, goodie bags or chew toys, dog walking arrangement. Leashes, pet waste bags, food bowls, water bowls, and emergency pet food are available upon request.

Margarita Studios is located in 4.000 sq m of gardens and grounds, which means there are plenty of walking opportunities for you and your dog, even if you do not want to leave the hotel. Although Margarita studios is very dog friendly, we politely ask that dogs are kept on a lead at all times whilst in the hotel, you clean up after your pet and a carrier is recommended if you need to leave your pet alone in the guest room.

Here at Margarita Studios every guest, including those who bark, 🙂 will experience our exceptional service and a warm Greek welcome. If you need any advice on walks or places to take your pet, please just ask us and we ll be more than happy to help.

This fabulous pet friendly hotel is located in the area of Ambelas, in a small fishing village, just 3 kms from cosmopolitan Naoussa in the beautiful island of Paros and only 2 min walk to the seaside road, with its many beaches and attractions to take your dog.

Dogs love the coast. The Ambelas coast line is a prime walking area for your dog and the coastal paths and bridleways are very dog-friendly.

With so many interesting walks to enjoy within the surrounding Ambelas area, it seems a shame to leave your dog at home.

Promises from a dog…dog1

We hope that you have many happy hours exploring the surroundings of our beautiful hotel.

Please Note. We always recommend that dog friendly breaks are booked direct with the hotel on 00302284052362 or email us info@margaritastudios.com, so that you are allocated a suitable room.

Hope to see you and your dogs soon!

Always at your disposal ,

Brush up on your Paros expertise

Brush up on your Paros expertise with these quick travel tips — all of which will help you make the most of your time here,of your Paros holidays.

Map1

1. Paros is situated in the centre of the Cyclades; it has 168km coastline, 25 km x 20km the island is located west of the Naxos Island, east of Antiparos and 91 n.m. SE from the port of Piraeus.

If you are island hopping, you can get directly to Paros from almost all the other Cycladic islands. You can get also even from places like Crete, Ikaria, Andros, Mykonos, Tinos or Rhodes and if there is not a direct boat, you get a connection from another island.

It is the third in size island of Cyclades and among the prettiest of them. It is a real island paradise filled with first-rate sandy beaches, bays, tiny churches, Byzantine monuments, photogenic whitewashed villages, cobblestone streets, sun-filled days, and vibrant nightlife adds to the charisma of this fun-loving island.

The island’s communications are fairly well developed offering to its inhabitants and its visitors all basic services: port, airport, marinas, civil services, banks, post offices, public transport and more.

2. No place on the island is more than 15 minutes from any other place 

•Parikia-Naoussa 11 klm

•Parikia-Lefkes 12klm

•Parikia-Aliki 13klm

•Parikia-Marpissa 18.5klm

•Parikia-Kostos 8 klm

•Parikia-Drios 25klm

•Parikia-Punda (for Antiparos) 10 klm

•Parikia-Ambelas 13.5 klm

By your car or by renting a car, (prices variety from 25 Euro & up per day, depending on model and season) or a motorbike (from 10 Euro & up), by bus or taxi you can easily stroll around. Free to discover the last corners of Paros. The roads on Paros are all pretty good.

We can arrange the rental and a car or a bike should be waiting for you in the port or the airport, so just follow the signs to Ambelas and Margarita Studios.

3. The weather is just perfect 

Paros has a very mild climate, you can swim in the sea from beginning of April until end of November, so for basically, more than half a year. But, please don’t forget the sunscreen. Paros sees an average of 300+ days of sunshine every year.Visit us in April, May, September pr even October, when the island is at its greenest and you will have a beach to yourself. It’s a great place to consider for spring and autumn sun. Note that the hottest and busiest months are July and August, with temperatures in the mid-thirties, whilst earlier in the year during April, May and September temperatures are nudging the mid-twenties.

4. Paros Nature –flora and fauna

Paros, gives the impression of being dry, especially in summer months.

A closer look, however, reveals the particularly rich and interesting flora. The specific weather conditions allow the vegetation close to the shore, of an amazing variety of plants, wildflowers, myrtles, cedars and of therapeutic herbs.

Parian countryside is blooming wild flowers such as cyclamens, anemones, mandrakes, medicinal and aromatic herbs, sage, rosemary, oregano, thyme.

The cultivation of cereals and grapes, olives, garden produce and fruit trees in terraces on the hillsides lends special beauty to the landscape since, from a distance; the ground appears to undulate in the Aegean Sea breeze.

More than 200 species of birds have been recorded on Paros.

We mainly come across seabirds, raptors, nocturnal and other. The Aegean area with its many islands, the rocky islands and the aquatic biotopes constitutes a “network” of valuable stop-over for the migrating birds.

Specifically in Paros, there are 11 small aquatic biotopes, in Santa Maria, in Kolimbithres, in Molos, In Golden Beach, in Aliki, in Campos, in the area of Pounda, at Livadi in Paroikia, in Antiparos and on the rocky island of Cavouras.

  • It is worth one to visit the Wild Animals Care and Protection Association “Alkioni”, which is located in Kamares (internal road that connects Paroikia with Naoussa), where the hospital instrumentation is and to admire closely the praiseworthy effort of the volunteers and as many of the birds that are in condition, of course, to stand the human presence.

5. Paros beaches 

Paros is noted for its countless soft-sand beaches and clear turquoise waters. They suit to every taste, ranging from long and sandy to very small, popular and more isolated ones, featuring beach clubs, umbrellas and sun beds or offering unspoiled natural beauty.

Serviced beaches are usually long and shallow, always sandy, easily accessible by car and also public transport or small boats, with beach bar-restaurants, some quiet with chilling music, others more uplifting. At some places there are water sports schools with national and international championships in the summer. “Punda “, «Kolimbithres», «Monastiri «, Krios «, Parasporos”, Golden Beach, New Golden Beach, Santa Maria.

Less crowded beaches with a few umbrellas and trees for shade, and a couple of tavernas to dine. They may have fine or thicker sand, very shallow water, ideal for families with young children. Santa Maria”,”Ambelas”, Laggeri, Xifara, Molos, Kalogeros,Logaras, Drios, Marchello, Ag. Irini

More isolated beaches range in size. If you are in an adventurous mood, along Paros’ coastline searching for that special beach, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Please do not hesitate to contact me personally if you have any questions or if we can be of any assistance to you and we would be very pleased to welcome you at the Margarita Studios in the near future.

Yours sincerely,
Margarita studios

HARVESTING OUR OLIVE TREES.

Our guests have asked us in the summer many times, how olive oil is made in the winter. Yesterday dawned bright and clear in Paros, a perfect day for picking olives, so for two days we have harvested our olives together with family & friends.  With great pleasure, we produced again our high quality and tasty olive-oil, our “early harvest, cold pressed, extra virgin” olive oil.

Each year has a different olive produce, this year is not such a good year, but the final product is really good! You will taste our olive-oil, on the table for your next summer!

Some of our olive grove is around Margarita Studios in Ambelas and in the area of Marmara village, where we have 40 olive trees.
