Where to stay in Parga, Greece: the best Parga self catering apartment with a view

Let me tell you that I went to Parga in 2019 and it is still one of my all time favourite trips and that is mostly because of where we stayed in Parga.

We decided to drive to the coast of Greece and just book somewhere random so we could spend an extra night near the sea. On the way, I booked a Parga self catering apartment for £63 for one night. When we arrived, it turned out to have the most spectacular view and I still talk about this apartment to everyone planning a trip to Greece to convince them to stay here!

If you’re looking for ideas of where to stay in Parga or planning cheap holidays in Parga, I’m sharing the beautiful apartment we stayed in, and lots of similar ones, in this guide.

Parga is a very affordable Greek town which means you have a great opportunity to plan a Greece beach holiday with cheap accommodation in Parga and affordable food and activities to do in Parga.

View from Martha’s Studio balcony

When I stayed in Parga, I stayed at Martha’s Studios.

I booked this unassuming apartment because it’s just 20 metres from the Venetian Parga Castle, it’s in the old town, it’s cheap, has free wifi, views looked good and the owners run the coffee shop downstairs and we’re big on coffee.

I paid £63 for one night in early September.

When we arrived, we were taken to the top floor apartment (as far as I can tell there are only 2, maybe 3 apartments in the building, all with balconies). I was absolutely blown away by the view, as in I cried because it was so beautiful.

We had a whole apartment to ourselves, a full kitchen, bathroom, living space, double bedroom and a huge terrace balcony.

There are plenty of Parga self catering apartments but I couldn’t believe how lucky we got with this one. You can book it here.

Even in July the price only goes up to £71 per night and in May, it’s available for £50 if you want to beat the summer crowds.

The owners were so wonderful, welcoming and friendly, offering us food and coffee from the coffee shop downstairs.

The location was perfect to walk into the town and explore, we were also able to see the castle on our doorstep and the amazing Taverna Stefanos seafood restaurant with views of Valtos beach was just steps from our door too.

But we honestly just loved coming back to the apartment with a drink and sitting on the terrace to soak up the incredible view as much as we could.
