Things to do

Churches of Koufonisi:

Agios Georgios, Agios Nikolaos, and Profitis Ilias are especially worth seeing, as is the church of the Virgin Mary. Each church is named after a certain saint that is important to the village. The fishermen at work in their boats, which are called caiques, are also a signature sight of the island.

Agios Georgios:

The Church of Agios Georgios is named after the saint that is believed to protect the island. A feast is held every year during the Easter season. Local tradition dictates that one local resident passes the icon around to everyone gathered, and the streets are filled with rose leaves. This is only one of several religious celebrations.

Procession of St. George:

The events of the island of Koufonisi largely centre on the Greek Orthodox Church calendar, a formative part of Greek culture. The procession of St. George, known as Panigiras, is celebrated every year on 23 April. There are also additional celebrations at Easter and in mid-August, celebrating the prophet Elias.

Profitis Ilias:

On the 20th of July on Koufonisi, there is a large celebration in the name of the prophet Elijah. There is a similar festival on the 15th of August for the virgin Mary. Both of these festivals take place publically, with lots of celebration.

Pori Beach:

A popular tourist destination, Pori beach is a beautiful public beach with a direct bus line back to the main town. Space is fairly crowded in the late afternoon. The white sands of this beach make it particularly beautiful, and the close proximity to town is also worth noting.

Cafe Scholio:

Visit a favourite among both locals and tourists on Koufonisi, Cafe Scholio. Owned by locals Nena and Mimis, Cafe Scholio is a place where locals are encouraging to tourists. Situated at the end of the main road in Koufonisi, it is also ideally located.

Weather on Koufonisi

The Mediterranean climate is fairly mild year-round. Lows in the winter reach as low as 10°C and summer reaches close to 30°C. The wind cycle that effects the Aegean Sea every year is called the Etesians. This is mostly a worry to sailors, as these winds blow at dangerous speeds, and occur fairly suddenly.

Travel to Koufonisi

It is easiest to travel to Koufonisi with the Greek ferry system. Fly into Naxos Airport (JNX) and take the Blue Star ferry line to Koufonisi, depending on what other stops are planned. Both car-carrying and passenger ferries are available year-round, and operate more often in the high tourist season. Ferries arrive in the town of Koufonisia, and the road that follows the northeastern coast lead to the town of Finikas.

The patio is a wide open terrace with a good pool, plenty of shade and lovely views. A little wooden gate leads from the patio directly down to the beach. The beach, even in August, was practically deserted and completely undeveloped. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets over Paros each evening. There is plenty to discover on Naxos. We travelled around the island quite a bit and visited some remote villages. We enjoyed the museums in the main town. We had a fantastic day sailing on a catamaran around some of the smaller islands. We did some windsurfing at Kastraki Beach - but some days it was just too windy, so we did not do as much as we had hoped. The shop/cafe is only five minutes' walk away and stocked a good supply of fresh fruit and vegetables, and freshly-baked bread. There a plenty of tavernas and small restaurants along the coast and inland. Most of the other holidaymakers were Greek and Naxos feels totally unspoiled by mass tourism. We had excellent communication with the owner and with his agent on Naxos. Very professional. I would highly recommend Villa Bella.

Amazing place, both in the inside and the outside. Plenty of room to feel perfectly at ease. Take the pictures and multiply the effect by 10 ! Very well received by Sascha at the airport, house perfectly equiped, very convenient to visit the island. The pool (big size) is a perfect place to relax, equiped with a bar, a fridge and a sono. Several places to choose for lunch or dinner according to, the view you want to have, a must. Thanks again also for the prefect communication before and during the stay. S.
