The lovely old house with a courtyard garden is situated in the middle of Parikia, Paros’s port town. The owners bought it a while ago and haven’t used it much, so the garden was very overgrown, a real jungle with spiky bougainvillea and other climbers suffocating roses, fruit trees and invading even the neighbors garden. It was a real challenge. While working in the garden an old lady in black popped her head through the garden gate. ‘I grew up here, and just wanted to see what you are doing. ‘-she said. So I promised her that we are going to restore the garden to it’s formal glory. I hope we did!
