Small But Gold

The beautiful Chora is also really quaint, filled with whitewashed buildings of classical Cycladic architecture and perfect little shops for souvenirs you can take with you, bringing a piece of the island back home. Not to mention the traditional taverns with the amazing Greek cuisine, as well as the colorful flowers all around… In such an island, life seems to be going on like an idyllic fairytale.

However Tom, Matthew and their families, are not the only ones who’ve seen the appeal of this paradise island, since it’s been visited by the likes of the talented actors Nia Vardalos, Billy Zane and Harisson Ford, the phenomenal actress and comedian Whoopi Goldberg and allegedly –the Queen- Madonna herself! Not only have those famous people stayed in luxurious villas in Antiparos, but some of them have also gone the extra mile of actually buying a villa or a house in the island. Tom Hanks and his family visit their Antiparos home every summer, being practically Greek at this point, and the same goes for a number of other distinguished names…
