We stayed for a week at this amazing property. Can't rate it highly enough. First class welcome by the lovely Lesley for whom nothing was too much trouble. The property and expansive gardens are extremely well looked after and very comfortable. Wonderful, peaceful evenings sitting around the pool with extremely good and very inexpensive Greek wine, top notch local produce,...

Management response:

There is so much to experience on this lovely island and the village of Melanes is an ideal location from which to start. It is equally appealing in the Spring and Autumn,especially for walkers! Thank you for...

Despite this we had a very enjoyable holiday. The house is very much as the pictures show. It's in a lovely setting that feels "inland" but really isn't so far...

Management response:

Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely detailed review! I am so sorry that the Naxos weather wasn't kinder to you all, and especially for your little ones,but I am pleased you were able to enjoy many aspects of this lovely island. It truely was a freak storm for late in May that can turn swimming pools...
