We were a little concerned on arriving at Naxos, that the taxi drivers did not know where Elia Studios were, however a brief conversation with the Manager of the accommodation office by the taxi rank resulted in a call to the owner of the Elia Studios who came immediately down and picked us up - and then advised us that he had already been at the port to meet us, which we hadn't expected. The owner of these studios must be one of the most hospitable gentlemen in Greece. He could not do enough for us and gave us a mini tour on the way back to the apartments, showed us how to get to the town and to the beach, ensured we had everything we needed and brought us an excellent breakfast (included in room rate) the following morning. He also took us back to the Port the following day free of charge.
The studios are basic, but bright, clean and comfortable. Their proximity to the beach is a huge bonus, however they are a little hidden away in a maze of streets and so can be difficult to find. We wished we had stayed a little longer and although the owner spoke limited English, we all made ourselves understood and we felt like we were leaving a friend after only one night.
