Only relatively few tourists come to Naxos in winter, even though winter is actually particularly beautiful in Greece. Autumn, winter and spring are ideal also for a longer stay, and our cottages are well suited for long-term stays. For the months of December to April, the rent for stays of more than one month can be arranged individually – please contact me about that.
In winter, Azalas is quiet and peaceful, and you can spend a wonderful time if you want to devote yourself to an activity such as writing or painting. Life here is simple and close to nature – perfect for people who want to get away from the hectic, stressful everyday life and spend time with themselves.
Naxos is located in the middle of the Aegean sea, so the temperatures are in general very mild: Naxos has the highest winter temperatures in Greece. Even in the middle of winter it gets warm in the sun, and the temperatures usually lie around 10 to 20° C (50 – 70° Fahrenheit). Still each winter there are also some periods when it gets quite cool, mostly in between January and March, with a minimum of about 3° C (38° Fahrenheit). Snow may fall in the mountains, and even in Azalas next to the sea it can be quite cold and uncomfortable on windy days. Our cottages are equipped with warm blankets and they can be heated with the fireplace and a small electric radiator, but the windows and doors are not well insulated, so on cold days you will have to put on a warm pullover or, if you want to sit up in the evening, wrap yourself in a blanket. However, the cold weather on Naxos mostly last only for a few days, and it is usually followed by all the more beautiful, sunny and often even quite warm days.
