Naxos Island Getaway

Naxos Island Getaway

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Looking for an unforgettable island getaway? Looking for a romantic

spot to spend your honeymoon? The fast pace of modern life getting

you down? Come relax in our beautiful 500 year old house in the

Chora (main town) on the Greek island of Naxos. Located in a quiet

area next to Naxos' historic Venetian Castle (1204-1537 AD), the

house has an incredible view of the sea, beaches and ancient port.

Its location in an archaeological zone means there are no noisy

businesses next door (though many shops, restaurants and clubs are

located only a few minutes' walk away). And we can offer you

unbeatable rates because we are the owners! Recently remodeled, the

beautiful old stone house (with some walls as thick as 3 ft.--about

1m.) sits on a hill overlooking most of the town. There is a large

downstairs living room with a large bathroom and shower, two beds

and a dining table. There's a second room downstairs with a

fireplace, and of course a large kitchen, including modern

amenities: refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, stove and oven. A door

opens off the kitchen to a spacious patio with a barbecue grill and

a glorious view of the ocean, neighboring islands, and the town

below. Upstairs is the master bedroom with a large bed and a small

private bathroom (with another shower). Upstairs you'll also find a

small private balcony with another incomparable view of the world

If you are looking for the authentic experience of living on a Greek island you cannot do better than this. Located in the heart of the ancient part of Naxos town, also called Chora or Hora, this beautiful little house is on one of the highest points of the village, right up against the Venetian castle, also called Kastro, which was built in the 1200's. Thus the views are amazing, a sweeping view of the harbor and the mountains beyond, as well the Portal of Apollo on a small hill that juts out of the water on the north side of town. To get to the house, you walk through alleys and narrow streets that only allow foot passage, and up many steps (someone in the guest book said there were 48). It is like living in the distant past. The people of Naxos are amazing, so welcoming and generous. There is a beach in the town called St. George, but more famous beaches are outside the town, a bus ride away or you can rent a car. You will hear that Agia Anna and Prokopis are the best-known. Our favorite was further south at Mikri Vigla, where there are no umbrellas for rent and no houses or commercial development on the beach so it is very natural and secluded and the sand and water are absolutely amazing. There is only one taverna on the beach, called Mikri Vigla Taverna, and they have excellent food. We cooked most of our meals at the house because it is very well equipped. You can buy fish off the boats in the harbor -- they usually come in before 9 in the morning. When we were there in May there were no farmer's markets but the small local groceries, many of which are called "supermarkets," though they bare no resemblance to the supermarkets in the U.S., have local produce, the quality of which varies from place to place, so it's worth shopping around. The whole town is accessible on foot, including the outskirts -- nothing is more than two miles away. There is a laundromat down on the harbor behind the Town Hall where they do a great job on your laundry for 10 Euro. The cafe Lotto on the waterfront has wifi and an excellent Greek breakfast. If you have a car, it's worth taking a trip inland to one of the many sights on the island, but frankly we found it most relaxing to just shop, sleep in the afternoon and lie on the beaches. Behind the house on the parapet of the castle, they have concerts every night. These are great fun and you cannot hear them from the house even though they are so close. Enjoy!!

Notes:

  • Small quiet streets meander through the hill the house is built upon, leading you to the bustling waterfront business district filled with shops where you can buy fruits, vegetables, fresh bread from a wood oven, and other Greek delicacies. Go dancing or dine in the excellent local restaurants. A 15 minute walk will take you to the nearest beach, or you can rent a car or motorbike (or take a bus or taxi) to explore the island's interior or arrive at one of the many other beautiful beaches on the island
