How do I get to Efi's from the port of Parikia?

By bus: There is a frequent bus service between Parikia/port and Drios. The bus terminal in Parikia is situated at the port. The bus journey is about 40'. The rooms are just 80m away from Drios bus stop. Anna's restaurant is just opposite the bus stop.
For updated information on the bus schedule and prices, please check the Paros public bus website:

By Car/Motorbike: Drios is situated on the main road that goes all around the island, therefore there are various ways to reach the village from all directions. The shortest one is via the village of Lefkes. Leaving the port, you head towards Lefkes (about 10km from Parikia). Once you pass Lefkes, you follow the signs to Marpissa, Drios or Golden Beach. At the entrance to Drios village you will see a plant & flower shop on the corner. Turn right there and you have arrived! There is free parking space directly opposite the rooms.

What kind of activities are available near the rooms?

The area is full of activities!

Water Sports: You can choose between water related activities, such as Snorkeling, Scuba Diving and Windsurfing. These are mainly provided in Golden Beach (at 1km) and New Golden Beach (3km). There you can find several water sports schools to rent equipment, get advice or sign-in for lessons.

Daily cruises: There are organised daily cruises leaving from Piso Livadi (5,5km) every morning, returning in the evening. While on board you visit nearby islands and you swim in turquoise blue waters. Ask Anna for more information and reservations.

Foot-trails: If you prefer to stay on land, Drios has an old and well-preserved footpath network, which is easy to spot and easy to follow. Drios is connected via these trails with other villages, such as Prodromos, Aspro Horio and Lefkes. Distances vary. Ask Anna for a map of the area.

Can I drink tap water?

It is best you didn't. Tap water in Drios is not dangerous for your health but it has a lot of minerals, so it is advisable to drink bottled water. You can cook using tap water.

Are towels and bed sheets provided?

Yes. Towels are changed every two days and sheets every three days. There is daily cleaning service.

Is there internet connection?

There is free wi-fi access in all the rooms and in the garden. You need to have your own computer or smart device to connect to it.

Is there a children's area?

Directly opposite the rooms, there is a small park and open-air playground area. Children can play there freely during the day. There is also a basketball court in the village. Windsurfing instruction may start at the age of 10 and scuba diving at the age of 8.

Do you accept credit cards?
