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.

The best again!
We have stayed in Dracos many times since it first opened. Every year there are some little improvements to the public areas which are immaculate and stylish. Rooms are a good size for four and the cleaning staff amazing . We booked direct this year rather than use a tour company and travelled down from Thessaloniki airport - a breathtakingly beautiful journey and very easy. Breakfast, air conditioning and safe were included in the price so excellent value. Staff are superb and we will continue to keep coming back. We prefer rooms that are not on the ground floor so you don't have to look at a hedge in front of your balcony but if you have little children ground floor is great as they can play safely directly directly outside as ours used to do. They now love lazing on the massive canopy bed making good use of wifi! Go - you won't regret it and you will love Parga More

Perfect for us!
Just returned from a fab two week stay at Dracos! First impression is very similar to other reviews... You are dropped off at bottom of a side road next to two smelly bins! Fortunately the Dracos is up the road and when you walk up the driveway to the Dracos the area is spotless. We had a second floor apartment with a pool view! Lovely and spacious with a fantastic 3 part bathroom (toilet, sink,shower)! Yes the kitchen area is small and basic but having stayed in many self catering apartments in Greece we were not surprised by this. We managed perfectly making a breakfast and the odd sandwich lunch, we didn't come away to slave over a cooker! Nice big double bed (no bed is like your own but we thought the bed was pretty comfy) and a lounge area (which is turned into beds if more than two staying in room). Room cleaned daily, can't quite remember how many linen/ towel changes we had during our stay but what I can say is that it was plenty! Great pool area and bar with plenty of sun loungers. We were there at a peak time in August and loungers were pretty much always available! Very friendly staff working at the bar, special mention to Spyros who was always very friendly and welcome (and makes a fab cocktail!). Food served at the bar was pretty much what you expect, Greek salads, pizza, burgers and toasters just a sample of what's on offer! We stayed as a couple and yes there were lots of families with children stopping at the same time but that just made for a great atmosphere! If you want no kids then book an adult only hotel! "Wild" tortoises live (and breed) in the grass area within the Dracos grounds! They are an added bonus for both children and adults and they love a nice bit of tomato! Walk into town is about 15 mins and yes if you stick to the main road it can get crazy with cars parked everywhere, however there is a back walk into town( passing some nice restaurants) which avoids most of the traffic! There is lots of litter around the sides of the roads which does let the walk down slightly however Parga town itself is kept spotless along with the beaches. We had a fab holiday and met some lovely families and couples! Would definitely return!More

A Lovely Hotel..!!!
Myself and my wife,children and mother-in-law loved our 2 week stay at the Dracos. The staff were wonderfully friendly and always had a smile. A special mention must go to the bar staff and especially Spiros who worked tirelessly from morning till night. Rooms were spacious and clean. The pool area was lovely with plenty of beds throughout the day. We met some lovely couples and families during our stay which helped us to enjoy Dracos even more. Well Done...!!!More
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

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
