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.

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.

                                                                                                    This is a great house in a very quiet location, convenient to all the amenities in walking distance. The house is finished to a very high standard and has everything you need and feels very home from home, especially the toaster and kettle! On arrival at the airport we were collected by Janine and taken to the house. Janine made us feel very welcome and was really informative about Naxos. The property was spotlessly cleaned by Janine during our stay, she visited the property on 3 occasions to clean and change the linens. This house is possibly one of the cleanest properties we have ever stayed in on our holidays. Also on our arrival the property owner emailed us to check we were happy and to contact him if we needed anything, we could not have asked for better service and we felt very looked after. We enjoyed our stay at the house and especially the shaded terrace, under which we enjoyed many pre dinner drinks and the odd BBQ. We have two children, one 9 and one 16, they loved the fast internet speed and the selection of DVDs in the property, and also the Pokestop at the local church! The local beach, with pristine water, is easily reached within 5 mins and was a bonus to enjoy a last minute dip in the evening, however, you can take a bus to the other beaches very easily from the bus station, 5 minutes walk from the property. In the port you will find numerous agents, where you can buy day cruises and ferry tickets giving easy access to the other islands. Naxos town really comes alive in the evenings with many restaurants and bars, and if you love people watching this is definitely the place for you. Our favourite restaurants was the Italian Sue e giu, this made a welcome change, and also the Meze Greek restaurant, which was of a really high standard and great value, both of these were located on the sea front. However, if you were to stroll into the maze of the old town (2 mins from property) there you will find many excellent and good value restaurants. I would recommend this house to my friends and family and will definitely book it again when i return to Naxos. Great house, thank you for making our holiday Chris and Janine.
