Paros Creative Holidays are the brainchild of Stefan Freedman, a well known British circle dance teacher, choreographer and musician. He has brought together the most talented teachers in creative and expressive arts to provide you with the opportunity to combine relaxation on the beach and cultural exploration with learning a creative art of your choice.


Just before and just after the main tourist season the heat of the sun is tempered by a refreshing breeze; the temperature is comfortable for exploring swimming and basking.


We can help you plan your journey, what to bring and whether to extend your trip.

What Else Can I Do on Paros?


Active people are spoiled for choice on Paros:



Windsurfing at our hotel beach (excellent teacher available), swimming, snorkling, sailing or horse-riding.



Coastal walking in both directions, and a local small climbable green mountain with lovely views.



Choice of organised day outings by ferry: Santorini, Delos, Naxos or Mikonos. There are famous stalactite caves on nearby Antiparos.


Culture and enjoyment

Local spa. Tavernas. Historic churches and museums. Seasonal dance and music festivals.


And Further Afield?


Paros is bang in the middle of a cluster of islands you can reach by ferry: Naxos (castle and lovely beaches), Syros (old Venetian capital), Delos (full of ancient temple ruins) and Santorini (stunning sunset views) - also just 10 mins by little ferry is Anti-Paros which has a nice port and stalactite caves. There's a lot of contrast on Paros too and some of the inland villages are little discovered, authentic and full of charm.
