We had a really lovely stay in the apartment. John and his family were genuinely keen that we should have a memorable experience. John’s father met us on arrival at the ferry and during our time welcomed us with home made goodies, including savoury and sweet pastries, the local drink, rakimelo, and their own produced eggs and olive oil. The apartment was clean, stylish and well equipped, including a washing machine. On a couple of occasions, we used the oven, pleased to have the option of eating a cooked meal at home. We enjoyed the outside balcony, with views over fields and nearby stunning hills and even a glimpse of the sea. Shops and tavernas are delightfully just a short walk (5 minutes?) away. We heartily recommend our most hospitable hosts and their charming apartment!
A very nice apartment but you do need a car if you want more than the local beach and local restaurants. There’s a good bus service for which you need to pre buy tickets or sweet talk the driver and he will let you hop off and back on to purchase when they pass a sales point.
The accommodation is quite remote but that’s a good thing if that’s what you’re after. Stelios met us off the ferry and took us there. He gave us fresh fruit, eggs and bread as a gift and replaced the towels after 3 days of our week there. Other than that he didn’t come round but did offer any help were we to ask. He did find us a good deal on car hire so he is worth tapping into for help.
South of the accommodation are some great beaches that are worth exploring. If you like the crowds go north along the shore line. Naxos town is great at night and my top tip for eating out is chose the town square and not the sea front. The old town is spectacular and a must see as are the villages.
Overall a great base for seeing the island and a great host.
