A Piece of Greece: Valtos Beach Hotel Parga

 

Just relax

Valtos Beach hotel is a small family run resort daintily placed in a mountain hill surrounded by lemon and olive trees with fabulously relaxing views onto the bay, ocean and nearby castle.

Lemon trees

As with most businesses around Parga – it’s a family thing, and you will see names of families hung up outside restaurants and cafes around the town. Valtos Beach Hotel appeared to be a tight ship with mum and dad still rolling up their sleeves and remaining in the thick of things – they went out of their way to talk to all guests and make everyone feel welcome, and said a personal thank you/goodbye to each guest before we left with a wave off!

A Greek Hideaway

The smell of fresh flowers permeates the grounds of the hotel, adding to a botanical garden feeling, along with the chatter of the birds.

A welcome gift

Junior suite with sea view

Plenty of storage

Kalimera!!

At One With Nature

All you need is a waterfall and bottle of ‘Herbal Essences’ shampoo (if you’ve ever seen the adverts you’ll get what I mean).

Bites

Trip Adviser warned me but I still had hope that it wouldn’t happen with the current lower than tropical temperatures. Hmmmm, well I did get a few bites – mosquito bites I think!

You will need something of this nature when you’re at the mercy of nature! The Valtos Beach area is beautifully filled with trees and flowers, which I guess attracts an array of biting insects, so be prepared.

Steps

If your mobility weak, the resort isn’t really equipped to accommodate this. There are a lot of steps, in fact there are stairs everywhere, around every turn and corner.

There are no lifts and no rooms that you can get to without some stairs.

The main reception is up two flights of stairs.

The hotel is built into a mountain hill.

Our holiday rep explained that as new businesses open, they are expected to the make necessary adjustments to accommodate mobility needs.

Generous food portions

The reviews were not lying!

There’s no such thing as a small portion; if you’re on a diet Β – don’t go to Parga.

I ordered this from the ‘snack’ menu, and was greeted with a mountain of chips and sandwiches with three slices of bread per sandwich!

Mousakka

Baklava (so sweet!)

Chicken and mushroom risotto

Pannacotta

A hearty soup

Breakfast:

If you like bacon and eggs you will not be disappointed as there is plenty of it every mornings.

The Beach

Beach beds cost five euros per day, and include a lockable box for you’re small items.

The sand varies from grainy to pebbles

Be sure to bring a pair of swim shoes otherwise it’s really hard work walking along the beach and the shore.

Crystal clear water

The water is so clean and clear…

 

Further down the beach

If you stop for lunch at this place you get one of those yellow sun beds for the rest of the day – for free!
