    Naxos – the heart of the Aegean

    Let the titanic slopes of Mount Zeus and the whitewashed town of Hora – the capital of Naxos – welcome you to the very heart of the Aegean. This is the largest island of the whole Cycladic group, offering an all-in-one package of Greek enjoyments. Smooth olive oil? Make for Tragea and its verdant valleys of olive farms. Sunning on the sands and swimming in turquoise waters? Hit Agia Anna and its patchwork of lagoons. Harbour towns? There's handsome Naxos marina and a castle that's positively Game of Thrones. Naxos holiday rentals dot the whole island, from the vineyards of the north to the beaches of the south.

    Go adventuring in Naxos

    Never forget that Naxos is the largest of all its near neighbours. That means it's got plenty hiding behind its handsome whitewashed marina. Head inland and over the hills to discover rugged valleys packed with olive farms and peppered with rustic villages. Places like Halki are home to half-crumbled Orthodox churches and olive tasting farms, all in the shadow of the 1,000-metre-high Mount Zeus. Going northwards can reveal vineyards and wineries, while heading south means taverna-backed beaches in lonely towns like Pirgaki and Kalantos.

    Naxos has a rich history

    Hora, or Naxos town, is likely to be the first place you see on this sprawling isle of the Cyclades. It's the main ferry port and home to countless Naxos holiday rentals, to boot. That said, it's no simple transport hub. Glance upwards and you'll spy a beige-stone citadel with soaring towers and keeps and gatehouses. It's just one relic of the Venetian and Frankish rulers that once dominated the port. There are more, many in the Archaeological Museum and the Venetian Museum, home to mosaics and centuries-old furniture, ceramics and more.

    Naxos has rain and sun

    While the inland hills of Naxos get more rain than the other Cyclades, on account of the cloud-piercing summit of Mount Zeus, this island is still the sun-scorched Greek haven you want for those summer holidays. Things can get seriously hot – think 30 degrees plus – in the months of June, July and August, so it's hardly a wonder that loads of people seek out Naxos holiday rentals with a pool then. September is a fine alternative, with the autumn weather a tad cooler and far fewer people in Hora's narrow streets.

    A big Cycladic landscape on Naxos

    As the biggest of the Cyclades islands, Naxos is home to some of the superlative natural wonders of the Aegean. It's got the highest peak of all its neighbours, rising to over 1,000 metres around the olive groves of the central Tragea region – a land of green valleys and babbling creeks that's primed for real adventurers. Down on the south coast are bald hills that drop to beaches of honey-coloured sand, while the north has vineyards and ridges of grass peppered with bell-jingling mountain goats.
