Why Naxos?

A lot of people ask me "why did you choose to promote Naxos and its facilities". Well, I will be honest. It was pure coincidence. But sometimes coincidences change our paths and carry us to new destinations.

Naxos is the biggest of the Cyclades islands in Greece - yes, Greece, in southeast Europe, that country you've heard and read so much about the last year and a half.

I will not bother you with the "tiresome" history of the island, there are hundreds of sources on the web, among which my own pride and joy in German. I will however point out that these historical facts are abundant on the island, starting from the 2 Kouros statues, the temples of Dimitra, Dionisos and Apollo, the archaeological museum and moving on to the venetian castle and towers across the island, right up to the folklore museum and the inland villages, such as Sangri, Halki, or Apirathos.

Naxos is a rich island, rich in natural beauties and rich in farming products. My beloved scene is that of cows blissfully grazing in the fields, or sheep temporarily blocking my way on the road. However, it is the long, sandy beaches I cannot resist, which are exceptionally long on the west side of the island, with crystal clear and not at all threatening waters.

And then, there are all the things you can do every day on your holiday, so as to live it in full! Snorkeling, horse riding, biking, trekking, jogging, windsurfing, kite surfing, even bird watching. Well, to be honest, I just lay at the beach, taking pictures and sipping wine in shady village squares or above the main town's castle (Kastro) enjoying the views of incoming vessels of all sorts. And devouring locally produced potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers and high quality cheese...

So, this is Naxos in short. I will be uploading photos, however in the meantime, you can check some on our Facebook page.

And you can take a look to the accommodation we provide on the island, ranging from rooms in the central city (Chora) to hotels or apartments right at the seaside - yes, in some you open the window and see nothing but the sea :-)
