The Cottages “Azalas” in Agios Dimitris, Moutsouna (Naxos)

by Astrid Scharlau and Nikos Mandilarás

On the quiet east coast of the island of Naxos we rent four beautifully designed, fully equipped cottages, each 60 m2, suitable for 2 adults and 1 – 2 children. Built in the traditional style of local marble and stone, they are situated directly on the Aegean Sea in between vineyards and olive trees. Each cottage has its own terrace with a breathtaking view of the sea, of Cape Stavros and the surrounding islands.

The interior

Each cottage consist of one room divided by a curtain into a bedroom area and a living room area with kitchenette. The cottages are furnished in the traditional style with marble floors and tiles, with wood and handwoven curtains. In the bedroom area are two beds or a double bed, a wardrobe and a small dresser. The sofa in the sitting room area can be opened into two separate beds. The kitchenette includes two hot plates, an electric kettle and a refridgerator with freezer. It is fully equipped with pots, dishes and cutlery. A beautiful stone-built fireplace can be used on chilly evenings in autumn and winter; also the cottages are equipped with air conditioning. Each cottage has a full bathroom with shower and WC; and a washing machine is available for all four cottages together. Sheets and towels are provided.

On the property

In between the lower cottages lies a kitchen that can be used by all the guests with an electric stove with oven, a large fridge with freezer, and a wood oven which can also be used for grilling. A large pergola covered with grapevine is ideal for the hot hours of the summer days. In it a huge marble table and two smaller tables provide ample space for reading, working or eating. The property includes a large vineyard, fig trees and olive trees and vegetable gardens. Depending upon the season (and the weather conditions), we provide our guests with fresh organically grown vegetables from the garden (mainly in spring and early summer). You can also try local organic olive oil and our own excellent wine.

The beach

Directly next to the property lies a small, clean sand beach with crystal clear water ideal for swimming, sunbathing and snorkeling. It is used mostly by our guests and the few local residents. On the rocks close by stands the idyllic chapel of Agios Dimitris.

The surroundings

The establishment Azalas belongs to the small settlement Agios Dimitris with only a few houses. The next taverns and a well-stocked mini market are available in the next village, the small harbour settlement of Moutsouna in about 2,5 km distance. From here (according to the time of year) busses go to the next larger village Apiranthos and to the main town (Naxos-Chora in 40 km distance). If you don’t want to rent a car we can drive you to Moutsouna or pick up your groceries for you.
