No airport on this small island so you need to fly to neighbouring Paros, via Athens. From there the you’ll need to take a ferry to the island.

By now, you know that I’m a big fan of Greece. Many of the new hotels in the past few years have all been in Mykonos, which I hear is really too crowded and less authentic now. Which is why I was really excited to hear about the Rooster on Antiparos.

I had listed the Rooster in my post of 2021 new hotels and now it’s open for bookings.

Antiparos is one of the unspoilt and largely undiscovered Aegan islands.  Taking its inspiration from the beauty of the natural landscape and the laid-back attitude of the locals, The Rooster embraces the idea of ‘slow living’ alongside the luxury of a quality boutique resort.

Beautiful and spacious suites or villas – all with private pool

The Rooster is a collection of 17 private houses, each with its own unique take on the idea of laid-back natural style, with an air of elegance and space.  

The rustic furnishings have been chosen carefully to really enhance the idea of nature and peace, with no corners being cut on the high level of interior design.  The owners embraced the “wabi-sabi” aesthetic – a Japanese concept for the appreciation for the beauty of things in their natural, imperfect and unaltered state. Hence using materials such as wood, marble and cotton.

You can choose between suites or villas. Both categories either have views of the garden or of the sea and all have freshswater swimming pools.

The  suites are perfect for couples and small families with a King-size bed, sofa bed and crib available on request. With comfortable living space, plus a private terrace and sundeck, you can enjoy your surroundings followed by breakfast or an evening meal on the patio.  

For larger groups and families the Villas offer accommodation for up to 5 guests.  With 2 King-size or Twin beds and a sofa bed, the Villas offer a flexible living option, with unrivalled views of landscaped grounds.  

Food and Wellbeing are at the core of The Rooster

The Spa at The Rooster provides a luxurious escape, with treatments and packages available that focus on the holistic approach that the resort embraces.  With two treatment rooms and a yoga pavilion, guests can really unwind and recharge, taking advantage of the peaceful surroundings.

With an Organic farm on site,  you and your children may appreciate picking your own seasonal ingredients to create your  meal.  We did that in Corsica at Murtoli and it was really nice to have fresh courgette flowers and strawberries picked fresh just one hour before.

Of course there is a restaurant  serving freshly made local and international dishes, utilising the home-grown organic produce.

The sunsets here are magical and can be enjoyed from the bar which has stunning views of the Aegean Sea.  The nearby ‘Secret Garden’ offers a more intimate space where you can enjoy a meal or drinks for a unique experience set within the lush grounds of The Rooster.

Island adventures for all the family

The Rooster offers a fantastic base for exploring the ancient island of Antiparos.  

Beaches in Greece are often very family friendly with shallow clear waters and fine sand.  

 For a change, why not visit the caves of Antiparos, set deep within the landscape offering a unique experience for all the family.  

The Rooster can prepare an organic beach basket to take on your adventures full of fresh produce and beverages.

I really like the look of the Rooster and as soon as we can, it’ll definitely be on my bucket list for a beautiful escape in Greece.
