More than 15 years ago, a group of us went set out to discover the ideal location to spend the summer together. We travelled the world and finally came upon a small village called Paradisos – and it was the perfect place. There, we met Maria (who eventually became our hotel manager) and bonded with her instantly. Since then, we've spent every summer in Paradisos, and we never got bored – we climbed all the surrounding mountains, explored all the beaches, cycled every road and sailed to every tiny island. Year after year, more and more of our friends came to visit and they, in turn, fall in love with the place, until we felt compelled to share it with the rest of the world.
