Why Naxos?

At Naxos you are free. Free to Be.

Naxos is a relatively big (428 km2) Cycladic island. The Cyclades are known for their white, cubic architecture and villages which seem to have been made by putting white blocks on top of each other. A lot of churches too, some with a blue dome. The Cyclades are especially famous for the more touristic islands Santorini and Mykonos, the deepblue sea and white sandy beaches. One also thinks of pictures of packed donkeys climbing a hill, raki-drinking old men, or orthodox priests with long beards and black garments.

Naxos has all that, but so much more. The beaches are long with soft, white sand, but there also are secluded bays and coves with rocks and pebbles. It has a beautiful capital (the Chora) with nice streets full of shops where you can wander around, but there are as well little mountain villages where it seems you’re the only tourist around. Naxos has a beautiful coast, but also a mountainous inland that varies so that it seems you arrive in a new landscape every curve you pass. There is cattle breeding, olive trees, mining,… You can admire antiquities, but there are many modern leisure activities too.

I arrived – rather by accident – on a Cycladic island for the first time in 1990 and I fell in love. Twenty years later I have visited and revisited 23 of the 24 inhabited Cycladic islands and Naxos caught my attention. I found my pied-à-terre. Meanwhile I became more and more convinced of the charm and versatility of this island and I can’t help wanting to share it with others.

That’s why.

That’s why I like to invite people to come over to Naxos to enjoy. Enjoy the sun and the sea, the city and the inland, the company and yourself, the peace and the growth.

On Naxos you are free. Free to Be.
