Our Greek island home just inland from the SW coast of Naxos, encapsulates all we love about Greece:
• The wide views of sky, sea, and islands that ‘float’ on the horizon, and
inland, curves of rocky hills
• Sipping chilled house rosé from our vineyard, beneath a sunset sky
• Harvesting olives, lemons, pomegranates, figs, pears and plums from our trees
• The space and light inside the house; simple but stylish interior
• Available mid-June-end Aug, and end Nov-end March

The space

The house is spacious and airy, 210sq m, on one level, with balcony on 3 sides. Kitchen, dining room and sitting room are open plan, and look south-west over olive grove, fields, a band of sea and island, and canopy of sky, inland to hills. The 'core' of the house comprises entrance hall with office and small twin room off, open-plan kitchen, dining room and sitting room, corridor leading to big main bathroom, master bedroom and access to ensuite apartment (double room + small living room); second ensuite apartment is on same level but has separate entrance. We designed the interior ourselves, and love it!

Guest access

8-10 guests access to both apartments and main 'core' of house. 4-5 guests in core of house and one apartment - depends on how many shared rooms and children. All guests have access to garden, and seasonal fruit and vegetables (lemon, fig, pomegranate, pear, tomatoes, aubergines, courgettes, peppers)

Interaction with guests

A friend and neighbour acts as our property manager; she meets you at the port or airport, shows you around, and is available if needed. We provide lots of information on exploring the island as we have run walking holidays here for many years.

Other things to note

The villa as a whole is available to let mid-June to end August. Low price winter let in the core of the house, for 2-4 people, minimum stay 3 weeks also available on request.
All bed linen and towels, including beach towels provided. Cleaning and linen changed once a week by arrangement with property manager. Beach toys available; sandpit, swings. BBQ

Gilly User Profile

By profession, I am a journalist, and writer/editor of illustrated non-fiction books (see My husband Robin and I gave up our professions (he was a board director of a major advertising company) for a healthier lifestyle, and set up a walking holiday business in the Cyclades. I still write, but love working on our land in Naxos, living by the sea, exploring the countryside, painting, practising yoga.... We live on Naxos in spring and autumn - when we offer B&B or self-catering in our home -and spend high summer and deep winter in London.
