The village of Lefkes, the ancient Capital of Paros is situated approximately 19 km from the domestic airport at Aliki and approximately 11 km from the port of Parikia and the cosmopolitan Noussa. The village of Lefkes lies on a hillside with pine forest and is surrounded by verdant olive groves, many olive trees are cultivated for some 2000 years. At 300 m above sea level, Lefkes offers breathtaking views over the island of Naxos. The well-known for environmental care and beauty with Blue Flag awarded beaches of Paros’s south coast are within 10 minutes driving distance.
The architectural richness, Lefkes’ historical inheritance, gives the village a special unique charm. Built like an amphitheatre, the typical white washed Cycladic houses appear, combined with Venetian mansions and picturesque dovecotes, overlooked along the hillside by ancient windmills. In appreciation of their architectural value, the renovation of these wind mills has begun. This beautiful scenery is dominated by the church of Aghia Triada, built in 1830 and whose bell towers are built with translucent Parian marble. It seems the entire countryside around Lefkes is dotted with the Greek orthodox blue domed chapels, where the Lefkes villagers meet to celebrate their name’s day.
In attractive natured surroundings Lefkes offers the ambience of a peaceful holiday.
From Lefkes the famous paved Byzantine way begins, leading down through vine yards and olive groves to the village of Prodromos and further to the sea.
All in all Lefkes offers the most attractive environment of a holiday where you can linger with typical Greek Kafenions. And for culinary delight Lefkes offers at least two Family Taverns (the most famous of the island) who serve local dishes traditionally cooked in the way of the famous Mediterranean Diets.(Since 2010 on Unesco’s list of Intangible Heritage) For the eye, souvenir shops provide traditional handicrafts, weaving, ceramics and decorative arts.
