The fertility of the largest plain of Paros, “Kambos”, is partially based on a small number of natural subterranean streams ending in wells with impressive architecture.

The Green Surfing Mare Villa was built in 2007 around one of these wells connected to an old watering cistern, in the middle of a relatively calm, secluded and private lot with an olive grove.

What makes Green Surfing Mare really special?

 

The Villa was awarded the Green Key certification in 2018.

The owners named the Villa Green to emphasize their commitment to a culture promoting social and environmental responsibility consistent with sustainable-development ideals. The fact that Cycladic islands have followed this tradition for centuries is made evident by the numerous old windmills spread over their windy mountain slopes. This led to building an eco-friendly 100 sq. m. Villa not only based on traditional Cycladic architecture finished with eco-friendly white paint, but also with a minimal environmental footprint:

·        the needs for electric power are met exclusively by photovoltaic panels

·        the needs for non-drinking water are met by a rainwater deposit (on Paros, mineral water has to be purchased for drinking consumption)

·        the needs for warm or hot water are met by a solar water heater

·        wastewater is treated by a natural biological mechanism

·        non-toxic cleaning agents are used

·        Exclusive use of energy-efficient light bulbs is made, although the Villa was designed with many openings not only in order to maximize incoming sunlight, reducing the need for artificial light, but also to catch refreshing Mediterranean breezes, rendering air conditioning or hair dryers redundant.

·        Moreover, recycling of plastic, aluminum, glass, paper is encouraged and organic food can be disposed in natural composts.

The owners then added Surfing to the name, since the Villa is located just in front of one the most famous places for kite and wind-surfing in the world, i.e. the Paros-Antiparos straits offering strong winds and short waves.

The most obvious name  ingredient, Mare, originates from the Villa’s beachfront location right on the west coast of Paros, offering a mild, usually non-humid, climate, unforgettable sunsets and magnificent views over Antiparos nearby.

In a mission to prove that eco-tourism can be at least as much fun as regular tourism, Green Surfing Mare is inviting visitors to spend holidays in one of the most beautiful and intimate retreats of the world, eager to advise and guide them in every step of planning and fulfilling their dream vacation.
