Top 5 ‘One Day’ Inspired Airbnb Stays on the Greek Island of Paros

One Day is one of the Ireland’s favourite new romance series, telling the 20-year love story between two friends. But it’s not just Dexter and Emma’s will-they-won’t-they storyline that’s tugging on viewers’ heartstrings.

Set over 14 episodes, scenes were filmed in some of Europe’s most awe-inspiring locations, including Rome, Greece, London and Edinburgh, igniting wanderlust amongst its 5.3 million viewers and counting.

One location that has particularly sparked interest is the lesser-known Greek island of Paros, where the couple holiday together in episode four. A small island located in the centre of the Aegean Sea, Paros is often overlooked – but with its white marble quarries and stunning beaches, it’s not one to miss.

From a secret garden maisonnette in the pretty fishing village of Naousa in the north of the island, to a summer breeze cycladic apartment located on the cobbled streets of Parikia, Airbnb has rounded up some of the island’s most gorgeous homes – perfect for a truly One Day-inspired getaway.
