Holidaymakers searching for holiday rentals in Naxos also enquired about Kefalonia holiday villas, Sicily holiday villas and villas in Corfu

Naxos is perfect for a traveller's next adventure.

Located in the Cyclades islands, Naxos is home to more than 6,000 residents. This island is incredibly important historically (several ruins are available for viewing, particularly those on the nearby islet of Portara), and also the most fertile of the Greek islands, resulting in increased agriculture and local food; fruit and vegetable crops, as well as cattle breeding, make Naxos the most self sufficient island in the entire Cyclades island chain. HomeAway offers a wide variety of villas on Naxos to serve as a home base during any stay on the island.

Aside from Naxos accommodations, HomeAway offers relaxing apartments of Naxos. These properties sleep 10+ people, making them ideal choices for groups with large numbers of friends and family. What's more, these accommodations come with all the amenities needed to turn a holiday rental into a real home while on holiday. For those searching for more active pursuits, villas on Mykonos are nearby and on an island sure to thrill. The island of Santorini, also close to Naxos, is the perfect getaway spot for those seeking secluded holiday villas.

Things to do

Captain Panos Sailing Day Tours:

Captain Panos Sailing Day Tours is one of the most popular activities on the island of Naxos. Visitors will enjoy the waters around Naxos, watch dolphins in the bay, and visit various caves along the shoreline. Refreshments are provided, as well as a photo CD at the end of the day.

Portara:

The archaeological site of Portara is located on an island now only connected to Naxos by a causeway. This unfinished temple faces Delos, said to be Apollo's birthplace. Built around 530 BC, this temple was never completed due to political unrest. In the 5th and 6th centuries AD, it was converted into a church (as were many Greek temples).

Plaka Beach:

Located on the Western side of the island, Plaka Beach faces the island of Paros. Plaka is comprised of fine white sand and white marble. Sunsets at the beach are particularly popular, given its location. Restaurants and beach facilities are nearby. A portion of the beach is meant for nude sunbathing.

Chora, Naxos City:

The city of Naxos, also called 'Chora' (as are all towns on the Greek islands with the same name as the island on which they stand), is located on the west side of the island. This town is the oldest centre of archaic Cycladic culture in all of Greece.

Kastro:

This former seat of power houses a 13th-century castle and a 16th-century Cathedral. Along with a number of Venetian residences from this time, the building also houses two very important Greek museums, the Archaeological Museum and the Venetian Museum.

Eggares Olive Press Museum:

Visit the Eggares Olive Press Museum. The press itself dates back to 1884, and the large olive press serves as an example for the 90 olive presses across Greece. The press is unfortunately no longer in use.

Weather on Naxos

The weather on Naxos embodies a Mediterranean climate. Summer temperatures peak in July and August and reach to around 35°C, and dip to around 10°C in colder months. Rains occur only in January and February. A group of annual winds called the Etesians (or Meltemi in Turkish) blow from mid-May to mid-September. These winds are most active in the late afternoon and die down in the evening.

Travel to Naxos

Arriving on Naxos is simplest by plane. Naxos Island National Airport (JNX) has departing and arriving flights from Athens Airport (ATH) and other European cities daily. Taxis and boats are available for hire on the island itself. Car-carrying ferries and passenger ferries travel to all the major islands in the Aegean. Ferries arrive into the town of Naxos (of the same name). The major road leading into the central island is called the Leof Naxou Glinadou Apollona.

We had some nice surprises waiting for us this time. A new shower had been installed which was just amazing, beautiful new furnishings and bedding. Yet again Anna had been busy baking for us and left a fridge full of delicious food! The house is still beautiful, very clean and well maintained and had everything we could have wanted. Plenty of extra towels and sheets if we needed them. The house has two wonderful patio's/balcony's which we watched the sunset from every night. Plaka beach is as gorgeous as ever. Not much change to Agios Prokopios (a 5 min walk) but noticed a few new very good restaurants and bars have opened. We hope to be back next year. Thank you Anna and Maria for letting us stay in your gorgeous house.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      Das grosse, saubere Haus mit drei Schlafzimmern, 2 Badezimmern, einem separaten WC und je einem genügend grossen Esstisch drinneund draussen ist bestens geeinget, um mit einigen Leuten hier Ferien zu machen. Die Küche ist gut eingerichtet und der Kühlschrank gross. An den meisten Fenstern besteht die Möglichkeit, ein Mückennetz herunter zu ziehen. Das Haus ist nur empfehlenswert mit einem gemieteten Auto. Die Strände bestehen mehrheitlich aus Sand und sind in der Nebensaison praktisch leer (z.B. Sahara Beach). Wer gern wandert, ist auf den sehr gut ausgeschilderten Wanderwegen im Hinterland gut aufgehoben. Die Kommunikation und die Übergabe haben bestens funktioniert. Wir verbrachten vorher und nachher einige Tage auf Mykonos und Santorini, welche viel touristischer sind. Auf Naxos findet jedoch auch das normale Leben der Griechen statt und wir haben immer sehr gut in den Tavernen (eher im Landesinnern) gegessen - die anderen Gäste waren mehrheitlich Griechen. Obwohl schon Ende Saison, waren die Griechen stets freundlich und nett. Wir kommen eines Tages zurück (Freunde von uns tun dies jedes Jahr).

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      The villa was beautifully kitted out with everything one could wish for in a holiday stay. A washing machine, full kitchen, dishwasher, 3 double bedrooms one of which contained bunk beds and a third single bed - so ideal for a family. The Manager, Riet Rowland was fantastic and provided excellent service. Close to the beach, so you could relax in the comfort of your own sun loungers and then wander down the garden for a less than 1 minute walk through scrub land direct onto the beach. The water for showering was plentiful and with good pressure and an outside shower as well so you could get rid of any sand from the beach before entering the villa. Good restaurants and local food shops within a short walk. If you have a car (recommended) to see more of the island, then there are larger supermarkets a few car minutes away (30 mins to walk).
