Dracos Aparthotel  

Loading

Wrapped in olive groves on the edge of Parga, this place has a peaceful setting and beautiful mountain views.

Dracos Aparthotel has a tranquil setting, tucked away among hills carpeted with olive groves on the outskirts of Parga. There’s a handful of quiet tavernas just up the road, and Parga Town is about 20 minutes’ walk away. This small hillside town, set in a peaceful bay, is home to a castle and 2 small sandy beaches. From the harbour, you can catch boats to tiny islands like Antipaxos, which has fewer than 150 residents.

The hotel looks like a quintessential Mediterranean escape, with stone-clad walls, terracotta roofs and wrought-iron balconies. Inside, things are more contemporary, with a focus on quality. The lobby, for example, has marble floors and sleek leather sofas. And bedrooms are simply decorated with polished stone floors, pale colour schemes, and pendulum lights. Bathrooms have a luxurious feel thanks to marble quarried in Greece, India and Morocco. Studios, meanwhile, come with a little more space and the addition of kitchenettes.

The pool is set in a stone terrace with views of the surrounding hills. There’s a pool bar here serving a buffet breakfast in the morning and simple snacks like salads and sandwiches throughout the day.

Perfect holiday

Dracos is a lovely apart/hotel we had a room on the ground floor which was perfect for our needs as a family. The rooms are immaculate and the beds made andapartment tidied every day. The pool area is lovely and we were never not got a sunbed no matter what time of day. It is a lovely ten fifteen min stroll into Parga passing our favourite restaurants Yannis, Perivoli and El golf which is right n the beach and the music nights there are very enjoyable. All in all a great place to stay. Oh and I thought the beds were fine despite other reviews.More

True gem!

Just returned from Dracos. This was my second visit to Parga and first to Dracos. We had a ground floor room (7), which had been recently added to the building and everything was brand new. This was very convenient for us, since the our son spent most of the time in and by the pool. The hotel facilities are spotless! The staff was always helpful and smiling. The guys at the bar are great, always joking (greetings to Spiros from Bulgaria, I had a nice chat with him). The girls would met with with smile and the service was always perfect. Cleaning service is provided on an everyday basis. Dracos is a top-notch hotel with a top-nothc service! Definitely recommended.More

Lovely Parga and lovely Dracos!

Spent a lovely 2 weeks in Parga. Dracos suited us perfectly. Staff are friendly and helpful, rooms were spotless and spacious with plenty of wardrobe space, and the bathrooms were excellent. There was always plenty of beds at the pool after a hot afternoon at one of the beaches. Guest were of various nationalilties which was nice, although very few people used the bar at night. Recommend hiring a car to get a feel of the area, roads are fine. Nice tavernas nearby. Love Parga and would definitely return. More

foxxielady,

brilliant

we stayed at the Dracos First 2 weeks in July at first we were disappointed with the room as it was dark and gloomy but the owners changed the door and let all the light flood in and it was ideal even though we could here every ones toilet flush from above it was close to the pool. The girl at the bar called Vicky was amazing she seemed to be there 18 hours a day always smiling and she taught us Greek every day with a test. There are tortoises everywhere which worried me when people walked on the grass squashing the tiny things, Parga town is amazing with loads of bars and 100s of restaurants of a high quality plus locals too which is a good sign food is good. Everywhere is beautiful the harbour, Valtos, Anthousia above valtos 4 euros in a taxi! Go to neon Bar see Nikkos soooooh Friendly and hospitable, We never go back to same place but it is so pretty and hospitable its amazingMore

First impressions rubbish! Skipfulls of it! (But it got better!)...

Arrived at Parga early evening to be greeted by a very mediocre track leading off the main drag with literally two heaving wheelie bins of stinking rubbish and twice as much on the floor around it - the smell was disgusting and therefore the junction turning off to Dracos was unbelievably hideous - so that was my first impression on arrival ( as the week went on the bins were emptied twice only to be full again by evening - if I had a property near this I would make damn sure it was kept tidy).. Up the hill approx 200 yards, is Dracos Aparthotel - and apart from a good old weeding needed on the drive, it looked pretty much like the pics on the web - always a good sign. We were allocated a room on the second floor with a balcony. The decor was a bit in need of a refurb, the plaster had 'blown' on the wall above the skirting board, where the 'wet room' was, and a few unsavoury brown stains on one of the the walls, but it was clean, and having a view over the pool was a bonus. We opted for the self catering option - but the room was not really conducive to this - yes it had a kettle, toaster, hob, fridge and one cupboard above, with mis matched china but having given you the tools to keep and cook food - there was absolutely nowhere to prepare it - no worktop, no interior table/anywhere to slice bread, butter your toast - in fact, nowhere to do anything - so we were always painstakingly trying to do everything on the small sink draining board, which ended up in a chaos of crumbs and plates most of the time! If you offer a self catering option - then surely, you need to give people the neccesary space in which to do it! Carrying everything out on to the balcony (where there was a small metal table) was a no go - who wants to slice bread on a balcony in 35* heat? So, that had started to grind by the end of the week! The bar offered snacks, nothing major, but adequate - my son had pizza one night, which was soggy and gloopy with enough stringy mountains of cheese for five people, which was duly scraped off and on the last night too tired to move we both had cheesburgers as an easy option, with fries, which were good. The staff here were welcome,helpful and friendly the whole time, as were the hotel reception staff. They were always ready to help in any way they could.. This is a nice looking building,well thought out shape wise,even though the pool was a bit on the small side - especially in busy August..I was glad that I was there with my son - wouldn't have wanted to end up there as a 'couple' as it was over- run with kids of all ages, and to even swim one length without being battered on the head with an inflatable crocodile was a chore. But on quiet times, when timed properly, it was wonderful...Poolside also offered a nice seating area (big rattan sofas) with colonial type umbrellas which was a welcome retreat from the sun if you wanted a change from the bar or your room.. The Dracos is way out of the main drag - and in such heat, was a bit of a struggle.We managed it twice a day, but by the end of the week were very tired of the same old hot dusty walk down to the harbour (15- 20mins) and the road is busy, and quite dangerous too of an evening - the pavement becomes a car park for visitors outside Parga coming in for the night, and they all park on it - which means that everyone has to walk 'on' the road, with cars, mopeds and pick ups whizzing past...on our last night we booked a taxi at reception - we were told it would arrive in 20m as they were busy - taxi actually came 1hr 10m later by which time we were just starting to walk back down the hill! So with that in mind, this place is not great or anyone who cannot walk any distance... Dracos has a lift to the upper floors, should you require it - and on the ground floor there was a 'shower and changing room' for those of us with later flights and in need of a freshen up before heading for the airport- having had to vacate the room since mid day.Very useful... All in all a very enjoyable break, not sure whether I would go back on my own with a teenager - there is literally,apart from swimming - 'nothing' for them to do there - my son was hoping for a pool table or some ping pong at least, where he might meet others of the same age... Return? Yes, I would - but not in August - far too busy, too packed, too hot - like the owner of the supermarket down the road said - 'June! Come back in June! Clean roads,clean sea, perfect weather, much quiet....' so June it is then!More
