Resting up high, with sweeping views across glittering Parikia Bay, this unique villa delivers the height of luxurious Cycladian living. Offering a crystal clear infinity pool, magical sea-view balconies and even your own poolside bar, you could happily spend your whole vacation here. If you decide to venture further, quaint Parikia, the Paros capital is rich in character and history. Its within reaching distance, and the nearest beach is even closer.
The infinity pool reflects the clouds above as you experience weightless bliss, gliding through its topaz water. Recline on one of the comfortable loungers, catching glorious rays of Grecian sun. When its time for some shade, stop by the poolside bar for a refreshing cocktail. Drink in hand, head to the outdoor lounge, a shaded area housing cozy chairs and a delightful swing seat. Al fresco dining is always a special occasion. Gather around the banqueting table, where dinner is served against the Parikia Bay backdrop. For a magical end to your evening, take a seat on the villas veranda, where you will witness the rainbow of colors revealed at sun down.
A subtle nautical theme starts in the living room and runs throughout, reflected both in the color scheme and furnishings. If there are keen cooks among your group, they will delight in the opportunity to serve up from the large professional kitchen at Villa Althea 2. For daytime snacks, the upper levels cute kitchenette will be your friend. Or if self-catering isnt for you, theres also the option to add our talented chef service to your stay.
Choose between three king-size fairy tale bedrooms. From the two upper level bedrooms, your morning will not have truly begun until you part feather-like curtains to reveal your private sea-view verandas. Step into the soft daybreak sun, take a deep breath and bask in the moment. Climbing plants and blue painted woodwork lend these verandas a lovely traditional charm. Three en-suite and one shared bathroom all possess their own individual character, one of which holds a mystical cave-like beauty and gifts a unique bathing experience. Three single couch beds reflect the more the merrier philosophy of Villa Althea 2.
A pretty town, dotted with whitewash houses and centered round a quaint harbor, Parikia offers traditional tavernas, laid-back cafes and restaurants showcasing the best of Cycladian gastronomy. It is a hub of architectural history, playing home to numerous byzantine churches and a 13th century Venetian castle in the oldest part of town. The islands airport is a short 8km transfer.

We were very happy to discover that the villa was even better than we'd imagined after having seen the photographs and having read the comments. The location is beautiful, very secluded and at the same time near to conveniences, the view is amazing. The villa is very nicely furnished and well equipped. The service (cleaning, laundry, a.s.o.) is very efficient and friendly. The concierge is always helpful and also very friendly. All what we asked for was seen to very quickly. The swimming pool is beautiful and very well looked. after.
We had a wonderful stay at Villa Althea 2. Akis met us at the port and was readily available to assist with any questions or needed recommendations. The property is as beautiful as it is in pictures, and the views from the massive pool area are unrivaled. We also utilized the 24 hour concierge service, which was both effective and prompt. Highly recommended!
Perhaps we didn't read the description properly but we were surprised to discover there was no connection between the downstairs bedroom and the 2 upstairs bedrooms. We have 4 young children so we had to put 2 of our children on the fold out couch upstairs. For many families with older children sleeping seperate may be a good thing. The villa itself is spotless and the view and outside pool/entertaining area is why you would book this villa. At first the villa seems a long way from all the action but in reality within 10 minutes you are at the Port and in just a couple of minutes at the beach with many restaurants to choose from. I believe there is an adjoining villa you can rent making Althea 2 perfect for traveling with friends. We really enjoyed the outside bar. A connection for iPhone to the sound system would make a nice addition as well as a BBQ. Overall a great stay.
The villa is immaculacy presented and incredibly well stocked with all the equipment you need to cook or relax. The view from the deck over the island is amazing and a great place to relax and drink wine! Akis was very willing to take us anywhere we wanted to go and his knowledge of the island was extensive. The extra sofa bed/trundle upstairs is perfect for families who want their own space. if you want a place to really soak in the gorgeous aegean views, then this villa is for you.
When we arrived at the Villa - it was exactly like the pictures on the site. It took our breath away
Everything at the Villa is perfection, from the decor to the cutlery, the view - everything.
The cleaning crew arrived daily and before we knew it the place was spotles. The cleaning staff were not intrusive, and they did an excellent job
The villa manager was brilliant. If we needed any assistance, be it from arranging a taxi to helping to find the trip box for the power - he was always on hand. Always friendly and happy to assist -m and his english is excellent
We could not ask for a better venue to have our holiday.
We will use Luxury Retreats again
This was our first time to Greece and after a few days in Athens we arrived to the splendour of Althea 2. The staff was there upon our arrival and was very helpful showing us around. We loved the set up of the actual villa with its many terraces and cozy seating area. But the outside space was spectacular. We took advantage of the outdoor table and various seating areas and the pool. The fact that the pool is chlorine free is a huge bonus. We joked that new pool toys kept appearing each day to the delight of our boys. Also, the housekeeping staff was excellent and unobtrusive.........also loved our home made baked goods received as a surprise one night!!
