How to reach us

Most people come to Naxos by way of Athens. From there you can reach Naxos either by plane or by ferry. There are daily flights from Athens to Naxos by Olympic Airways (make your reservation in time: it is rather difficult to get tickets).

Every day several ferries go to Naxos from Piraeus, the port of Athens. From the airport, you can reach Piraeus by speed bus, with the metro, or by taxi. In summer you can also use the harbor of Rafina, which is closer to the airport of Athens. The Blue Star Ferries take about five hours to Naxos; the high-speed ferries three to four hours. Usually the ferry timetables for summer are not available before March.

If you want to avoid Athens, you can fly to Mykonos or Santorini and then take a ferry to Naxos. There are ferry connections every day between the islands (from Mykonos and Paros about one hour; from Santorini, two or three hours), but usually it is necessary to spend a night at least in one direction.

We can pick you up at the harbor or the airport of Naxos if you don’t wish to rent a car. In this case make sure to contact us a few days before your journey for a final appointment.

Car rentals

If you want to explore all the island of Naxos you should rent a car. That is possible only in Naxos town, for example here:

If you arrive at night make sure that your car rental will bring the car to the harbor even at late hours. Also don’t forget to ask to have the tank filled. The last service station lies in Filoti (closed at night). At night you can fill your tank only in one automatic service station in Naxos town. The way to our cottages takes about one hour by car.
