Overview

About the property

Very spacious 2 bedroom town house close to the beach perfect for naxosvacations

A very spacious 2 bedroom terraced townhouse. Set over 3 floors with modern décor, close to the picturesque port and BLUE FLAG beaches of Agia Anna and the stunning beaches of Plaka and Agios Prokopios. Only a 7 minute walk to the beach.

The layout of my house is perfect for 2 couples or a family with children, having sleeping areas with air conditioning, shower rooms and terraces on the upper and lower floors, and a shared living space with terrace in between.

The house has 3 very large terraces with 180 degree panoramic views along the South West coast of Naxos.

On the middle level there is a fully fitted kitchen with fridge/freezer, electric oven & hob, dishwasher, dining & living areas, 2 large double sofa beds, 40in Curved Satellite TV (films and sport, smart TV), Netflix, CD music player and high speed wireless internet (30Mbps). This leads to a large balcony with spectacular views.

From the middle level, stairs lead down to a large double bedroom with a queen size bed, large double sofa bed, air conditioning & shower room. A store room with Siemens washing machine and a Bosch tumble dryer. From the bedroom there are double doors leading onto a 25 m² balcony with sun beds, table & chairs & glorious views along the Naxos coastline.

From the middle level stairs lead up to a large double bedroom with a queen size bed air conditioning and a shower room, double doors lead to a large balcony with sun beds, table and chairs and stunning views.

Naxos averages more than 10 hours of sunshine a day in the summer months and almost no rain in June, July and August. Naxos was recently voted the 6th best island in the world by reviewers.

Naxos island: Lying at the heart of a unique group of islands at the edge of the Mediterranean Sea, Naxos is a jewel in the azure blue Aegean Sea. Naxos averages more than 10 hours of sunshine a day in the summer months and almost no rain in June, July and August. Huge spectacular sandy beaches, sand dunes covered in a rare cedar forest, 1000 m mountains, lush green valleys, fertile planes, caves, rivers and fresh water springs. These are a few of the reasons that see the regular return of the informed traveller and the frequent accidental tourist. Whatever you look for in a summer break, Naxos has it all. Whether you like to laze around on beaches or tour the islands wealth of historical sites, you won’t be disappointed.

From Naxos city centre (Chora) in the west, the coast south is almost one continuous sandy beach stretching for almost 30 km. Even at the busiest times it’s possible to be on the beach alone. Rise early enough and find your very own little cove for the day. During the hot summer months these beaches are cooled by the prevailing north wind (meltemi). Windsurfers and kitesurfers arrive from all over Europe for some of the best conditions possible. Horse riding and scuba diving are available for the more adventurous.Beach life is not for everyone, there are hundreds of kilometres of tarmac roads. Naxos is 448 sq km; it has about 40 villages and a population of 19,000. The road north of Naxos town has glorious scenery and many rocky beaches. Stop for lunch in Apollonas and visit the Kouros statue which was carved in the 7th century BC. The journey back through the high mountain villages is spectacular. Koronos and Moni for amazing views and 6th century churches.

Naxos is not as commercialized as some of its Cycladic neighbours. This partly due to its self sufficiency, often supplying the surrounding islands with fruit, olives and potatoes. They also mine for marble and emery. And partly because of the airport not being able to handle international flights. Olympic airlines operate a daily 50 seat connection from Athens Eleftherios Venizelos airport. The vast majority of visitors arrive by ship from the main ports of Athens (Piraeus and Rafina) and the surrounding islands. Tourism has grown considerably since the airport opened in 1993, but not enough to change the special character of Naxos. Most of the commercialism is confined to the attractive port of Naxos town, with a magical mix of ancient and modern, the port is dominated by a Venetian castle. Narrow paths and streets wind their way down to the seafront, where you can find all the modern amenities of a busy town, banks, restaurants, cafes, travel agencies and supermarkets.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The Greek tradition of hospitality is strong in Naxos. Our gracious host David made the booking easy, arranged a driver to meet us at the port, and met us at the house. David took his time showing the house and giving us tips on the best local sites, and eateries.



This Agia Anna house lives up to the beautiful photos posted on line, it is situated in a quiet local neighborhood, creating a restful holiday atmosphere. The house is a perfect set up for two couples, well appointed and comfortable. There are masks & snorkels, to enjoy at the many nearby beaches. For a lazy day at home there are lots of great books and local tourist information, which you can enjoy on one of the three decks.



There are at least three well stocked local grocery markets within a 5 - 10 minute walk, if you want to cook at home, in the well equipped kitchen. If you prefer the 17 + local tavernas offer a great choice of local cuisine. We didn't get to them all, and that alone is reason enough to return.



Walking around the area is easy, the next town Prokopios a 20 minute walk along the water has a local Arts Festival providing great evening entertainment. In the other direction the beach goes on and on, you can walk for miles / kms, or many of the local tavernas offer beach chairs for the price of a beer, a great way to spend an afternoon.



We took a Naxos Tour the first week to get a sense of the island, then rented a car on two occasions to check out Mount Zas, the other sites. Agia Anna has two rental car shops. Alternatively it is easy to get into Chora, the capital, on the local bus, and there is a lot to see and do there, shops, museums, the Portara, and restaurants.



All in all staying at David's house in Agia Anna is one of the best holiday experience ever.

David's easy going, friendly, hospitable manner is welcoming.

A jewel in the Aegean

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin to sing my praises about this property on Naxos? 5 stars is simply not enough. This was our first trip to Greece and it was serendipity that brought us to Naxos, and more importantly, this house. Our gracious host, David, greeted us at the port in Naxos town and drove us to his house in Agia Anna. He gave us a mini tour of the village, pointing out the different tavernas, grocery stores and beaches. He also gave us excellent recommendations for restaurants in the town of Naxos and other sites to see on the island.

The description of the house is completely accurate. We were 2 couples traveling together on this Greek holiday, and the layout of the house was ideal; one couple on the lower level, and the other on the top level, each with our own bathroom and deck, and the shared living space in between. Every evening we sat out on one of the terraces to enjoy the sunsets over Paros. I grew up in Hawaii where we have wonderful beaches and sunsets, and I can honestly say that the sunsets I saw here each evening were spectacular.

This house is set at the top of a gentle hill in a tranquil and idyllic setting. It was an easy, 10-minute walk to the village of Agia Anna and its beaches. We immediately fell in love with this area and discovered an absurdly beautiful little cove where we were in heaven, swimming in the sea, and lounging in the sun. All the beaches in the area are incredible; long stretches of white sand and crystal clear waters for swimming.

There is a full-scale kitchen in this house, complete with modern appliances and every utensil imaginable. It was hassle-free for us to prepare our own meals. That being said, it was also easy for us to eat out as often as we liked with all the wonderful tavernas within walking distance and all so reasonably priced. The living room is spacious and comfortable, including satellite television (which we never turned on!) and complementary wi-fi access which we appreciated having.

We spent 9 nights here in May 2010 at the start of a 5-week trip throughout Greece. We wanted a quiet place to relax, read books, go for walks, swim in the ocean and sunbathe. We got all of this. Since our stay at David’s home, we have visited other islands in the Cyclades and Ionian Sea. To us, Naxos was like discovering Shangri-La, and we can hardly wait to come back. Thank you, David, for such a memorable vacation. We look forward to returning soon!

Recommendable

  • 4 of 5

David was extremely welcoming and helpful. He was always answering the E-mails in short time. The house was just like in the pictures. If there is anything more to wish for, it would be preferable with an air-con also in the living-room.

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming property, close to Agia Anna beaches and restaurants. We had a fabulous time staying in this townhouse and the owner has thought of every little detail to make the house extremely comfortable. The views and sunsets from the terrace are stunning and David was an absolute pleasure to deal with. We'd highly recommend & would visit again in a heartbeat!

Excellent place

  • 5 of 5

Great location near Plaka beach, but not in the middle of the crowds. Apartment is well maintained, clean, and well stocked. Beds comfortable. Great for two couples or family. David was very helpful with tips on places to go. Would definitely come back.

Great property, well located for the beaches

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at David's property. He was on hand to tell us where everything was and where to eat etc. House was lovely, clean and in an excellent quiet location but only 10 mins walk from the closest beach and 15 mins from Plaka. Had a wonderful time and we even saw a turtle whilst snorkeling in the closest beach port.

Thank you David for a great week in your house.

Living the Dream

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you enter the door .. you know you've arrived in paradise.

Right from our first inquiry with David, we experienced professional service from a gentleman who is not only helpful and attentive but shows a true love for his island.

Quality and attention to detail definitely sums up this lovely home that is close to all local amenities in Agia Anna without being on top of them. For me this is the true Greece and I can't recommend a trip to Naxos highly enough.

Our party of two couples spent three glorious weeks here, soaking up the Naxos sunshine, beautiful beaches and mountain tripping to quaint villages where you will find warm and friendly people and the true culture of Greece.

This home is within walking distance to an abundance of tavernas that serves up "authentic" Greek cuisine and will not disappoint. If you find the need to cater your own dinner, the kitchen doesn't lack for one thing. We did so on a few occasions and ate on one of the beautiful terraces watching some amazing sunsets.

Plaka, Agia Anna and Prokopis beaches are an easy walking distance if you're fit. Although it is recommended that you pick up a car to adventure further into Naxos, we did it only twice. Most of the time, we walked, took the local bus or called our "go to taxi guy". We found glorious coves for swimming in the crystal clear Aegean Sea, took an amazing day sail and ferried to Santorini. It's all easy and accessible from Naxos.

Our hearts are full of gratitude for experiencing this beautiful paradise called Naxos and laying our heads down each night in this lovely home.

I'll be dreaming of returning one day.
