“The perfect place to stay in Naxos”
Reviewed 31 July 2013 via mobile

We went to the Naxian collection with our three young children (6,4 & 9 months) and absolutely loved it!

Janis was very welcoming when we arrived plying us with his own white wine and the local spirit citrone, plus his home made cheese and breads! H also gave us a great round up of things to do on the island. He'll also sort out any reservations you want at the local restaurants etc

Food

Breakfast is epic so much so that most of the guests take the pastries for lunch, the staff are always willing to help, if you don't fancy going out they'll cook you up whatever you want - as long as they have it - if they don't they'll get it in for you. And it's not expensive at all especially when compared to the seafront tavernas. Fed all of us three times for 60 euros.

They do a weekly BBQ which again was a feast, wish I hadn't eaten all day :)

Accommodation

Modern but not trying too hard, the villa was cleaned everyday, private pool was great, we were in #30 right next to the main reception area - which was a good one as we had a bit more outside space than some of the others which included areas of shade all day.

Bathroom and balcony off the master bedroom were great for tired parents at the end of the day.

Also take a walk up the hill opposite - only takes 10 minutes but stunning views over Naxos


Top tips for Naxos

You need a car
Head to Aliko - it's a half built ruined hotel with the best snorkelling and quietest beaches in the island - not as smooth sand as Ag Anna but with bags more character.
Get decent sunglasses, especially for kids- it really is very bright there !
Faros is the best restaurant on Ag Anna
Halki is well worth a trip, amazing small family taverna in the main road on the left as you go up the hill (can't remember the name!)
Picasso is also a great restaurant, the owners have been running it for 20 years so they have it nailed - perfect for kids.

Final note to Brits

We didn't meet or even hear any Brits the whole week apart from on the plane - perfect :)

We spent 12 nights at the Naxian Collection, and would willingly have doubled our stay. From the moment we arrived, the warm welcome from Ioannis, Maria and all the staff was a sure sign that we would be looked after well. Our villa was superb, immaculately cleaned every day with all towels changed daily. Our private pool and gardens were a secluded haven, with views over the surrounding mountains, beaches and countryside. Inclusive breakfasts were remarkably generous, and the choice of delicious home-made food was impressive. The villas are ideally located for easy access to the magical main town of Chora and the beautiful sandy beaches of Agios Prokopios and Agia Anna, where quality tavernas abound. With a hire car we travelled the island extensively, and found no other villas to rival the Naxian Collection. Ioannis and Maria have truly created a special experience, relaxed luxury and attentive service, on the best Greek island we have so far visited (out of 14). We look forward to returning with family before long. PandA, Yorkshire, England

Most people easily understand the term ‘wonderful’. Without hesitation, and as a first time reviewer of any hotel, restaurant, destination, etc.… I can only convey that in this case ‘wonderful’ does not adequately capture the essence of a stay at the Naxian Collection property in Naxos, Greece.
What this small family-owned & operated boutique property lacks is solely the cachet associated with the prestige brands like the Four Seasons, Orient Express, Shangri-La, & Mandarin Oriental properties, all of which I frequent to most destinations, but that are, in my humble opinion, an equal to the experience associated at staying at the Naxian Collection.
That one is warmly treated as a relative throughout the stay is, at times, a sentiment that many travelers may not fully embrace because, after all, when traveling to a vacation destination, one presumably wants to get away from work and familial obligations and just simply relax. But I confess that the Margaritis family made me feel as I wanted to spend even more time with them at the property, as their hospitality is truly a rewarding experience. From the welcoming at check-in to the invitations to partake in a feast attended by other guests and friends of the owners, I can’t stress enough how much the personal, sincere attention provided by the owners and staff overwhelmingly impacts the holiday experience. As a write this, I’m already conjuring plans for my next visit.
As previously indicated, this is my first review ever although I had previously stayed at the Naxian Collection two years ago and, admittingly, I opted to just keep my first experience to myself; a little gem which I would only share with my closest and dearest in a way, perhaps, to selfishly keep my initial and equally wonderful stay at the property to the select, privileged few. However, I would be doing a dis-service to like-minded worldly travelers who seek the enhanced & refined, pampered experience which are continuously being sought when staying at premiere properties. Try the property when in Naxos – there will not be any doubt that, like me, you too will start thinking about your next visit to this property even before you check-out. It’s that much of a rewarding and wonderful stay!
This review is simply an overview of my experience; I’m not well versed in the finer details of the types of sheets and linens used, nor do I have an interest in detailing the facilities, food & drink selection, and/or the distance relative to other points-of-interests on the island. For that, there are numerous sites to view pictures and also other reviews of the property on this site. My only purpose is to expose to those of you whom enjoy the finer aspects associated with traveling and seek the highest of standards and expectations to be met when in Naxos, that the Naxian Collection property encapsulates that requirement many times over.

How do we begin to describe such an amazing place? With the organic home grown garden providing fresh vegetables daily, or with the outrageous homemade gourmet breakfast included in your room rate each morning, or perhaps with the most accommodating and friendly husband and wife team that we met in our 7 weeks of travel throughout Europe. The Naxian Collection is by far one of the most beautiful boutique hotel experiences in the Greek Islands. All the Villas are superbly designed and provide first class accommodations. The property is perfectly located with great views over water, the mountains and the harbor town and is just a few minutes’ drive to some of the best beaches and restaurants in Naxos. We cannot say enough about the dedication, passion and family spirit of the owners, Ioannis and Maria. Every guest is treated like their long lost cousin who has come for a visit. Not only is the food amazing, but there is a first class wine cellar as well. We want to thank you, Ioannis and Maria for making our stay the best experience in the Greek Islands ever. We can't wait to return.....

Ioannis and Maria at Naxian Collection made our trip to Naxos a memorable one. From their fresh, hand-crafted Mojitos to their organic dining experiences to the unparalleled level of service, we highly recommend a stay there and a visit to Naxos! You barely have to lift a finger while there. They've thought of everything and are well established on the island. They know all of the best places to go out and anytime we wanted, they got us the best table in the restaurant and free desserts/drinks. We wanted to rent a scooter (highly recommend for fun and convenience), they had one delivered to the hotel the next morning. Our scooter (with brand new helmets) was waiting for us as soon as we woke.

This is a great resort for both families and couples. The resort is very secluded so you rarely run into one another- especially because Naxos offers so much to do. Whether you stay at the resort or explore the island, you will have a great time. Ioannis and Maria and the staff at Naxian Collection are full of tips for a great stay on the island and are a lot of fun to hang out with while back at the resort.

We had high expectations when we arrived. Little did we know we'd leave even more impressed. All the obvious questions have excellent answers- cleanliness, very much so. Service, impeccable. Luxurious? Absolutely.

Thanks again, Ioannis and Maria. We wish you the best in the future and next time we are in the area, we'll be sure to stop by and stay for a few days.

Room Tip: Grande suites are very large and great for families. Junior suites are better for couples.

I can't say enough wonderful things about this place!! Naxian Collection was beautiful, clean, spacious, and perfect in every way. The bathrooms are gorgeous, the beds are comfortable, the views are breathtaking, and the private pools are beyond luxurious. Above all, the family that runs Naxian is the BEST! From the second we arrived to when we left, we were treated like family. We drank their homemade wine, toured the property, and spent our evenings drinking and eating with what seemed like the entire neighborhood.

The location is perfect as well. It's an easy drive into the center of Naxos and very close to the most amazing beaches. We didn't even have to leave to rent a car - they brought it to us!

They were so accommodating and generous and really made every effort to make our stay enjoyable. Next time we're in Greece we're skipping Santorini and going straight to the Naxian Collection!!
