The Holiday homes Azalas originated from a dream: the dream of creating a small community. We built the cottages ourselves, and they were the first houses constructed on Naxos from natural stone in a long time. Reviving this old tradition was not an easy process, and we’re delighted that many people have followed our example. The first guests stayed with us in the year 2000. Over the course of the years, we added various garden areas and pergolas to the property, and eventually built our own home behind the cottages.
Of course, we now use the cottages in a different way, but the idea hasn’t entirely vanished. Sharing and community
still play a significant role for us, and it is our greatest joy to connect with our guests.
We love sharing our little paradise, whether by eating a meal together or by providing our guests with our homemade bread and the vegetables we grow in our garden, or by undertaking a hike together. Also I love sharing what I know about the island of Naxos so that you may appreciate its fascinating history, traditions, local culture, climate, geology, vegetation, flora, fauna and marine life as much as I do, either through presentations or through guided tours, and of course through this website.
We appreciate interacting with our guests, even if our time doesn’t always allow for everything. Feel free to come to us with your questions and curiosity, and of course if you encounter any problems or difficulties.
It gives us the greatest joy when your dreams are coming true in your holiday as well!
