  "A lot of sweetness in this island, very quiet, the faces of the people good-natured ... and the sea calm". This is how Nikos Kazantzakis described Naxos in his book "Report to Greco".
Naxos rises proud and imposing in the centre of the cycladic islands. Scenes of the unique landscape and history are forever imprinted in our memory. The archaic temple of Apollo, the traditional town of Chora with the Venetian castle, the impregnable towers, the sandy beaches, the rich valleys, and the green olive groves all combine to form a diversified landscape that makes us stand in awe in front of nature's creation.
