Yes, Greeks love egg dishes for dinner!
Eggs in Greek cuisine are not really associated with breakfast as they are in other countries, they are more of a night food.
Dinner, is most of the times for us, a lighter meal than the lunch, which is our largest meal and eggs is a perfect solution, easy, healthy, maximize energy, keeping us full all the way to breakfast.
And be sure here in Margarita Studios we love eggs at anytime and we know that a good day begins with a good breakfast! With loving attention to detail, it is me who takes care of the breakfast buffet. You’ll be amazed! It has everything your heart (and stomach) could ever wish for – from freshly baked local bread specialities to freshly cut fruit.«Stella’s breakfasts are legendary, with the best Cretan yoghurt, the freshest Fruit, and homemade cakes, jam, and fresh juices.»
Eating is never rushed in Greece!
So here I am, I have for you a traditional Greek dish for any time of the day – breakfast, or as a side dish at lunch or dinner.
Tomatoes and eggs (Strapatsada)
salt & pepper
(feta or xinomizithra)
Wash & grate the tomatoes. Throw their skin away. In a frying pan sauté them, add the olive oil, some salt and pepper.
Once they absorb their liquids we beat the eggs and pour them over the tomatoes.
Cook for about 4-5 minutes, stirring gently. When the eggs are cooked and slightly colored,remove the pan from the heat.
They have to stay juicy.
Feta or Xinomizithra ,our local fresh cream cheese of Paros and some crunchy bread are the ideal accompaniments to this dish.
Kali orexi ! Buon Appetit !
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.
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-Kostos 8 klm
•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.
