Finding the perfect family holiday can be a serious headache but these holiday properties on the Greek island of Paros - made famous by the Netflix series One Day - could be just the thing for your next getaway. 

Jetting off to the most popular holiday destinations kids want to visit isn't cheap or easy at the best of times, and now Rishi Sunak's crackdown on term-time holidays is making many of us think twice about trying to save money on family holidays by booking out of season. 

Happy news for parents who are pining for a holiday, though - new data from Airbnb* shows that searches for stays in Paros, Greece, have increased by a third (32%) since the series aired. So to help fans bring their wanderlust to life, Airbnb has rounded up its top One Day-inspired stays in Paros. 

Netflix’s One Day stars actor Leo Woodall and has pulled on viewers’ heartstrings, but it’s not just Dexter and Emma’s storyline that has fans talking. Set over 14 episodes, scenes were filmed in some of Europe’s most awe-inspiring locations, with the lesser-known Greek island of Paros featuring in the fourth episode, when the couple go on holiday together – inspiring wanderlust amongst the show’s 5.3 million viewers. 

 A small island located in the Aegean Sea, the overlooked island of Paros, Greece is filled with pretty coastal villages, cobbled streets, and stunning beaches, making it the perfect getaway. And guess what? We think these holiday properties are the perfect spot for a family break with the kids that won't cost a fortune or for a parents-only minibreak - perhaps while you leave the kids with the grandparents for a weekend!
