An inland village on the island of Paros with nothing but positive experiences to offer visitors, from meals in traditional Greek taverns to peaceful, relaxing walks.

If you don't happen to be looking for peace and relaxation, this is probably not the place for you: you'll be bored to death.
Summary:

Lefkes is known for being the prettiest inland village on the island of Paros, and in my opinion that reputation is entirely deserved. I spent two incredible days here, walking around its little white streets, which reflect the light of the sun, and noting with pleasure the flowers in all the windows and the dark blue of both the doors and the aforementioned windows.

And if those weren't reasons enough to visit this village, which has not yet found itself inundated with tourists and has managed to keep all its traditionally authentic character intact, here are two further ones. The first is the main church, that of Santa Trinidad, which offers a contrast to the rest of the buildings in terms of both style and size: it creates the impression of a big sister quietly watching over the village. The second reason is the fact that with the village located on a hill well above sea level, it offers visitors unequalled views of the island of Naxos.
