Back in the 80’s when George Georgoudakis (the owner) and his dad first visited Paros, they immediately thought that this remote beach on the channel of Pounda had the potential to turn into an ideal destination for water sports. Their vision started being formulated on that first holiday. The winds and the water are perfect, all you need is a place to rent some surfing equipment, a place to get some food and drink and a place to lay your head after a full day on the sea. Wake up, put on some flip-flops, get a coffee and go surfing, it is a simple as that! The beginning was back in 1993 when the first windsurf school was started… and 28 years later, following the creation of two world class water sport centres and a relaxed beach bar, the Anapnoe Resort is now a reality.
Anapnoe’ is the first and only accommodation right on the shores of the Pounda Beach in Paros, a kite surfing mecca that draws kite and windsurfing lovers from all over the world. An intimate complex of 7 rooms, Anapnoe is purposefully designed for those who are driven by their passion for water sports. The same passion that George and the team share is evidenced in the premium quality in every corner of Anapnoe and the hand crafted attention to detail in the resort’s furnishings, many of which were constructed in the PAROSKITE workshop.
Defined as high-end water sports boutique hotel, Anapnoe features a harmonious blend of contemporary and traditional decor. The use of natural, endemic textures throughout the premises makes the accommodation experience ideal for lovers of nature. All seven rooms nesting in a garden full of flowers and trees for maximum tranquility and a seamless passage from indoors to outdoors and back again.
Our goal is to make each day of your vacation simple, hassle free and unforgettable. Anapnoe is the place to catch your breath in the morning before your adventure starts or the evening when the day’s adventures are soaking in and you can’t help but smile. After all, as a Greek proverb says: “if you smile when no one else is around, you really mean it…”
