Scarlette is hoping to make a splash with the 5 great options she’s lined up for their £140,000 budget, but will they love any enough to take the plunge

Paros

Why buy here?

The Greek island of Paros lies in the in heart of the Aegean sea. There aren’t any direct flights there from the UK – you can get a half hour connecting flight from Athens – which is around 3 and a half hours away - or get a ferry there from several of the islands nearby, including Mykonos and Santorini. Paros is small but perfectly formed – it’s just 13 miles long and ten miles wide. The island first became popular with tourists in the late 1960’s and it’s loved by holiday makers for its tranquility, crystal clear waters, and traditional Greek architecture. Paros is the third most sought after Greek Island famous for beautiful beaches, tranquil waters and stunning landscape. It caters for everything holidaymakers could want with plenty of bars, restaurants, villages and shops to explore.
