Situated on the island of Paros, the Afendakis Hotel is a small, vine-covered building only half a mile from the beaches of Pounda and Piso Livadi. The 13 guest rooms and apartments all have a beach house vibe, with sparse white walls, simple wooden furniture, and private terraces with views of the sea or garden. Each room has a fully equipped kitchen, and there are several grocery stores within walking distance. The hotel is also just a 20-minute drive from the capital of Parikia, home to attractions like the Archaeology Museum of Paros and the fourth-century Church of Panagia Ekatontapiliani.
