Beautiful location, caring hosts
We had a great week at this property. The villa was well kitted out, particularly in the kitchen. There were lots of lovely outdoor spaces for sitting and the pool was pretty - although not great for little ones as the shallow end is too deep and entry is via metal staircase. Although in every other respect the children felt happy and safe here
Anna and Max were so helpful and friendly. Anna came to meet us at the airport and went shopping for provisions for our first breakfast because we arrived late. Max is a wonderful sculptor and the garden is full of his creations making this a really inspiring place to stay. Peaceful and away from the hub bin,this was a lovely home for a week.
Lovely villa with every need catered for. We were met at the port and escorted to the villa by Anna, stopping on the way to fill up the hire car with petrol.
The villa and its land is set in the hillside with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and the village of Engares. Anna and Max, the owners, live next door to the villa and Max has his sculptures all around the very ornate and pretty garden.
Inside the house, the large kitchen/dining room has every facility that could be necessary and on arrival the refrigerator was stocked with essentials including water, wine and beer. The bedrooms were comfortable with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space for all of our clothes. Upstairs the bathroom has a lovely corner bath with a shower and the downstairs bathroom has a shower. Towels are provided and there are plenty including towels for use by the pool, that are stored in the cupboard next to the sauna in the pool house that also serves as a changing room. The weather was so hot while we were at the villa that we did not make use of the sauna but I can maging that it would be great in cooler weather. We loved the swimming pool and spent a lot of time either in the pool or sunbathing around the pool area.
We rarely used the lounge but there is a small television and a bookcase with books in several different languages. Wifi is very good throughout the property.
There are two tavernas that we found in Engares one within 10 minutes walk but most often we drove into the port of Naxos for the evening and here there is an amazing choice of restaurants, cocktail bars, ice cream parlours and many shops that remain open very late. The prices are very reasonable and compettive
Sunset at the port is beautiful and it is a very vibrant place.
The villa was cleaned once during our stay of 10 days and the bedding was changed at the same time.
If you want to see some of the island, eat out in the evening and visit some of the pretty beaches, hiring a car is absolutely essential for getting about.
Gorgeous Villa, Welcoming Owners, Highly Recommend
3 friends and I had a glorious stay in this beautiful villa. It is well-maintained, fully equipped for all your needs, and has a beautiful view of the surrounding hills. The pool and pool house are perfect for sun-bathing or pool games and surrounded by the lovely garden and charming sculptures of the owner. The owners Anna and Max were extremely welcoming and friendly - leaving us wine, fruit and cold beers as a welcome hello - and helpful with local tips and recommendations. They live next door but are very discreet and happy to leave you to it. The villa is positioned a short walk from the local village, and a short drive from Naxos town and the good beaches. I would highly recommend this to a friend: a well-maintained and clean property, excellent customer service, and a beautiful setting.
This villa is a beautiful place to stay.
This villa is a beautiful place to stay. It has a private pool and it is in a very peaceful location, on the side of a hill, surrounded by palm trees, olive groves and farmland. The village of Engares is about 10 minutes walk away; it has several good tavernas and an olive press museum. There is also the village of Galini, which has a shop for groceries and is about 20 minutes walk away. The nearest beach, Amiti, is about 20-25 min walk away (a nice evening walk). The owners, Max and Anna, live in a separate part of the house – they were extremely helpful, friendly and unobtrusive. In general, this part of Naxos has rather few tourists and is more focussed on agriculture than tourism. You really need a car. It is a great place to stay, as a peaceful retreat and as a base from which to explore the island. The house is very clean and beautifully furnished, and the garden is decorated with many of Max’s marble sculptures – it is not just a standard holiday house. The house is not air-conditioned, which was not a problem for us, but some people might find it too warm in the evenings in July and August. The house has good WI-FI and a television (but no DVD player).
We spent one week in this wonderfull house.Everything is decorated in an extremly tastefull and stylish manner which is very unusual for a holiday house.Apart from that, the house and garden are very clean and taken care off.Max and Anna are very friendly and caring without being all over their guest.
We do travel a lot but this one of the best and relaxing places we have stayed at.We absolutly recommend this place.Enjoy!
