Exotic Garden Estate at the Water's Edge...
One of the most unique features of Agia Irini Villas is that they sit on beautiful and colorful gardens that stretch right to the seaside, a truly exceptional setting on Paros.
Though the Cycladic islands are, of course, justifiably well-known for spectacular seasides, the gardens at Agia Irini owe their particular distinctive beauty to the loving care and expertise of the owner, Kostas. When he bought the land it was a rocky field along the shore and his vision and love of exotic plants and gardening has transformed this piece of earth into one of the more unique stretches of seaside gardens in the Cyclades.
By bringing in rich fresh soil, Kostas has been able to carefully cultivate trees and exotic plants from all over the world, most of which were of course not indigenous to the Mediterranean and many of which might never have been grown elsewhere in the Cyclades. The colorful foliage includes such exotic fare as Aztec Gold, Crinum, Raspberry, Papaya and Samoan Fluff.
One can happily wander through the many garden paths and read the botanical names of all the exotic plants from all over the world or just enjoy being surrounded by the sweet scents and colorful gardens while making your way to secluded beach for a swim.
