The most distinct stories are written in the most distinctive and beautiful places
And Parga is just the place. Built surrounding a Venetian castle with obvious Ionian architectural influences, it resembles an isle in the heart of Epirus.
Nestled amphitheatrically on Mount “Pezovolos”, with its preserved multi-coloured settlement overlooking Paxi, Antipaxi and the distinctly blue waters of the Ionian Sea, Parga enchants you.
The history of Parga begins in ancient times, which was then known as Parageiros, Paragaia and Ipargos, the latter lending it its modern name. It was once occupied by the Normans, who built the first fort in the 14th century, followed by Venetians, French, the English and the Turkish. In the years of the Venetian occupation, Parga revelled in great privileges and economic prosperity and bridged Turkish-occupied Greece with Venice.
In Parga, there existed oil mills and soap factories. In this same period developed an important educational growth with well-known initiating teachers such as Priestmonk Filotheos, Anastasios Mospiniotis, Andreas Idromenos, Christoforos Perraikos, Agapios Leonardos etc.
During Ottoman rule, several Souliotes crossed through Parga onto the Ionian islands. In 1797 Parga went from Venetian to French occupation and then to English occupation in 1814. The English proceeded to sell Parga to Ali Pasha by treaty in the beginning of the 19th century and consequently loses the privileges of past centuries. The locals adversely react to the treaty since this comes with a significant loss of their property and in order to avoid enslaving themselves, escape to Corfu in 1819. The collective memory has salvaged their lamentation and their escape to Corfu as an important and tragic event in the history of the city.
the breakfast, the swimming pool, meditation & beauty, activities
The unforgettable stories are those which leave a significant impression on us
At Racconto Boutique Design Hotel we want you to begin your day in a distinct way, as such, we offer an exceptional breakfast. Our breakfast is made up of exclusive products that carry their own stories from different regions in Greece: thyme honey from Epirus Mountains, juicy olives from local olive groves, distinctive cheeses from Metsovo and complimentary traditional offerings from various regions in Greece. Naturally, there could never be a lack of homemade marmalades, freshly baked cakes and bread from the breakfast table. Ingredients, products and flavours which come together to transform a seemingly simple meal into a unique and unforgettable experience for your palate.
Our pool offers multi-faceted revitalisation, at all times. The unique and breathtaking pool area offers a great deal more than a cool-down and sunbathing space.
It is a space which reminds you each morning that today will be unlike any other day. Perhaps the aroma of fresh coffee will awaken the urge to head to the beach, perhaps not. The space invites you to enjoy your book or newspaper and whets your appetite for a tasty journey in the afternoon. Your ultimate late-day treat may consist of a glass of wine or signature cocktail from the pool bar which may act as a catalyst for your night out, or further sink you into a blissful “dolce far niente” mood.
In proximity to the pool, we have created a unique meditation space which is readily available to hosts your soothing stories and experiences. It is a peaceful space set with harmony and balance in which you can burry and lose yourself for a moment or a while when you most feel you need to.
Parga offers an array of activities which not only fill your day but nourish new experiences, knowledge, moments and unforgettable memories. We are available to organize any activity which suits your fancy. Simply let us know.
we would be happy to hear from you !
