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 loved spending the evening on the terrace watching the sunset, preparing and sharing a meal; absolutely fabulous. The photos of the property are authentic, including the fantastic views of the sunset above Paros. We received a very friendly welcome to a fully equipped house and kitchen with amble space for 3 adult couples. We couldn't have wished for anything except for a good set of kitchen knifes and chopping boards. One hotel restaurant is 100 m away, we didn't try it. Small village with basic shops and lots of restaurants 2 km away, 30 minutes easy walk along quiet roads. Main town 3.7 km away, a couple of minutes by car or 50 minutes on foot, walking along the quiet road first, then along the beach. Two small beaches are 2 minutes away on foot, perfect for swimmers of all abilities, larger beaches everywhere. Highly recommended!

Good facilities, washing machine very much appreciated. Very helpful owner and local rep. Good shop on right at T-junction going into town (25 minutes). Petrol stations to the left at same location. I hired a scooter from Haris Rentals at the port. 20 euros a day plus 5 for picking up the bike the night before. Book a day in advance, leave passport. Lots of day excursions to other islands. No need to get the tourist 'day cruises' except for Delos. Santorini can be reached any day by the regular services (06.15 returning 15.30). You can have a day on Paros for 20 euros (Blue Star) but the return leg leaves after 10 at night. Excellent bus tours of Naxos from Naxos Bus Transfer at port. Itinerary 2 seemed the better choice. Highlights of Naxos were the unfinished marble kouroi at Apollonas and Flerio. Also climbing Mount Zas is exhilarating but strenuous especially from the 'cave route' just outside Filoti on the Apeiranthos road. Several kilometres further along is the tiny chapel of Agia Marina from where the route up is much easier, Don't mix up the two paths on the descent!
