Dear Mary,

     Introduction (about what kind of place it is): I was so happy to get your letter and I'm glad you're thinking about going on holiday to Paros. It's a beautiful island and the perfect holiday destination.
   Para 2 ( things you can do there, best accommodation options): Paros combines a cosmopolitan atmosphere with picturesque , traditional locations. You can find many five-star hotels on the island , most of which offer affordable package deals. Of course, there are also many inexpensive rooms and studios. The beaches are ideal with crystal-clear waters and the most popular ones are Piso Alyki, Saint George in Antiparos and Kolimbithres in Naoussa. If you go to Saint George in Antiparos , you must definitely visit the Cave with Stalactites and Stalagmites and the 500 stairs. Here, you can take the bus from the town of Antiparos to take you up the hill to see the Cave.
   Para 3 (what you like about it, anything else of interest): The most beautiful location on the island is the old town of Paroikia called "The Castle". It's a well-preserved , medieval city with  the Venetican castle  and many cobbled-stone streets that surround the whole area. There are shops selling everything ,from local souvenirs to very expensive shoes and bags.  There are also many cafe`s , bars and restaurants in the side streets. The atmosphere is truly amazing!
   Conclusion (closing): I could go on forever , but, I don't want to spoil the surprise. I'm sure you'll have a great time. Write when you return and tell me what you thought of it.

Best Wishes,

Dear Mary,

Introduction (Reason for Writing): I'm so glad that you're coming to stay with me and my family for two whole weeks. I'm writing to answer the questions you asked in the letter you sent me.

Para 2 (life in town, what the college is like): First of all, since you're coming in late spring ,it would be advisable to bring light clothes and a jacket. The weather is mild most of the time , but, it can get a bit chilly at nights. As for my college, it's one of the best and oldest in the country , so, you won't be disappointed.  It has excelllent sports facilities ,so, you can play whatever sport you like while you are here.

Para 3 ( activities to do after classes and at the weekend): The town I live in, is one of the busiest in Paros, Paroikia. There are many street cafe's bars and night clubs and as it is by the sea ,various events take place along the pier ,in spring and in summer, too. We can go jogging or for long walks there and gaze at the sunset from the "Mill" ,outside the "Pandrossos Hotel". Another thing we could do is visit the museum , archaeological sites and the "Ekatontapyliani church" that are located in the town itself. 

Conclusion (closing remarks): I'm really excited that you're coming. I'm sure you'll love it here and you'll want to come back. I hope you 'll find my letter informative and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best Wishes
