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.

Perfect holiday apartment.

5 of 5
I am just back from my stay at the Skyroof apartment and have nothing but wonderful memories of a perfect holiday. The apartment is exactly if not better than the description and photos, in fact the views from the three balconies are even more stunning. The apartment has been very thoughtfully put together from the exceptionally comfortable bed to the windows with fly screens, the Wifi is excellent and throughout everything was spotlessly clean. The little area of Orkus is beautiful and blissfully quiet with many sandy beaches and a couple of shops and tavernas within a very easy walk. Panos and Maria the owners are charming and delightful, Panos was kind enough to collect me from the airport and deliver me back to the ferry, really nothing was too much trouble and I even had gifts of fresh fruit and delicious biscuits. I rarely go back to the same place twice for my holidays but am very tempted as this was utter paradise, so I would thoroughly recommend this property for a lovely quiet holiday to recharge the batteries!

Villa Paradise in Naxos

5 of 5
My Family stayed in May 2017 - as it was just before peak season, it was wonderfully quiet although not all restaurants and shops were open, however as we had all we needed at the villa in terms of self catering, this wasn't exactly a problem. The villa itself i can't fault - only to say that the mattresses and pillows could definitely use an overhaul. Thankyou especially to Riet Rowland whole went to such lengths for us in all matters to make sure that our stay was memorable and enjoyable - I would highly recommend this property to anyone travelling in a group of family or friends - with a beautiful pool and many beaches within walking distance - including almost its own private beach at the entrance of the property- it couldn't have been more perfect. Thanks Riet for making our stay so memorable.
