Stay in House 'Fontana' for an authentic taste of the real Greece. The property is located in the heart of the Greek community and close to other properties inhabited by friendly, welcoming people of all ages.

78 sq. metres (including a large, private, dining terrace) and sits on a plot of 116 sq. metres including a small, private, garden.

We also regret that we cannot accept a booking if the lead booker is under 25, again unless by prior arrangement. This is a non-smoking house and pets are not permitted.

This single level, detached house has recently been completely refurbished to an extremely high standard by it's current owner. Including:

- marble flooring throughout.

- air conditioning throughout.

- wood burning stove and electric heating throughout so ideal for year-round occupation.

- satellite television package showing live English Premier League games and films (included in price).

Rental prices quoted also include a full professional clean and full change of bed linen and towels midway through and at the end of each week's stay.

My property manager will meet you at the port or airport, on your arrival, and accompany you to the house to explain how everything works. She also lives in the town and will be available to help should any problems arise during your stay.

House 'Fontana' is located in the main town - Chora - of Naxos, at the base of the 13th century Venetian castle and close to the beautiful 18th century Orthadox cathedral and archaeological museum. Despite it's easy access to all local amenities, this is an extremely quiet house and location.

The 'Paralia' (road in front of the harbour which has many cafes, restaurants, shops, car/scooter rental sites and banks) is within easy walking distance as is the ferry port, public bus stop and the 2,500 year old 'Temple of Apollo'.

There is a stone beach - suitable for swimming - a couple of minutes walk away but the best sandy beaches are either the blue flag beach of St George (in town) or the stunning blue star beaches of Prokopios, Agia Anna and Plaka on the west side of the island (approximately 15-20 minutes by car, scooter or bus).

In addition to it's beaches, Naxos is wonderful for all outdoor activities including water sports, walking, swimming, cycling (mountain and road), horse riding and tennis. All of these are within easy reach either on foot or by public transport, scooter, car or bicycle.

Great!

  • 4 of 5

Naxos is a brilliant island. Villa Fontana very comfortable and well set-up in a great location, 5 minutes from town centre. Loved the book and DVD collection and the shady terrace. Chris and Janine very helpful and good to deal with. I would heartily recommend.

Beautiful Island! Wonderful People!

  • 5 of 5

The minute we entered House Fontana it felt like home! Everything was perfect. The house is spacious, clean and well decorated with a home away from home feeling.Each morning we enjoyed the start of our day with breakfast on the the terrace!

Janine, our host was helpful and delightful!!

Many great restaurants one we liked in particular was Flamingo. (the view was amazing!!

We rented a car from Escape Naxos. Nick the owner, is such a nice man. It cost 40 Euros a day and well worth every penny. Nick brought the car in the morning to House Fontana and picked it up that evening.

Would like to thank Chris for sharing his beautiful home with us and who knows next year we may come visit for at least one month. That is our plan!!

Lovely wee house, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house for 6 nights in July. The location is excellent, less than 10 mins from the port and a few mins into the old town itself.

The house is nicely furnished and ample storage space for our clothes. Janine (housekeeper/ property manager) was very helpful during our stay and supplied us with drinks and fruit on our arrival. There is a covered seating/ eating area outside which is very nice, although we only had breakfast mainly due to the heat. There was no noise at all during the night and we all slept very well!

There are so many restaurants and bars in the old town, we loved Manolis Garden Taverna in the old town, the food is traditional, very reasonably priced and good service.

The town beach is about 20 minute walk through the old town, it is actually a nice shallow beach with plenty of sunbeds. It does get quite crowded. We took the bus to Plaka beach a couple of times, it goes frequently from the port and is only a couple of euro. Plaka is the last stop and is a lovely tranquil beach, cheaper sunbeds than the town beach. There is a supermarket next to the bus stop, handy for drinks; the Plaka Beach Hotel is next door, the pool is lovely. You can use it (as we did) if you have drinks or food.

Chris was an excellent host, he kept in touch prior to our stay and during to see if there were any problems. He ensured Janine met us at the port and took us to the house.

Overall we would stay at House Fontana again, it is lovely with an excellent location. Highly recommended. :)

Brilliant location, very comfortable home and perfect courtyard to spend your afternoons.

  • 5 of 5

From the time we made contact with Chris our experience with House Fontana has been awesome. Location is excellent, close to port and old town and best restaurants and only a 10min walk to the beach. The House is clean and very comfortable, great wine glasses and a delightful cool courtyard where we had a few wines before venturing out to dinner. House is very quiet and cool, which is surprising when you realise you are only a few steps from the hustle and bustle. Our host on the ground Janine was a delight and pointed out the supermarket, only 200m away and great restaurant tips. Naxos is our favourite island with a great combination of beach, cheeses, wines, restaurants and history. Seven days was not enough we will be back again to House Fontana.

Beautiful Greek Island Experience

  • 5 of 5

I spent almost a month at House Fontana and loved both the property and the island of Naxos. The house is nicely furnished, conveniently located just a few blocks from the Naxos Town waterfront, and quiet and good for sleeping. The owner is very helpful and provided me with information that helped me have a wonderful vacation stay. Naxos provides an authentic Greek Island experience, not the overly commercialized and crazy-crowded experience one has on Santorini and Mykonos. I highly recommend both the property and the island.

Perfect stay in Naxos

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 3 nights at House Fontana at the end of May. Everything was spotless and as inviting as depicted in the photos. Owner Chris was very responsive to emails and helpful in organizing our stay. We were met at the ferry by Janine, the very friendly and helpful housekeeper. She guided us on the <10 min walk to House Fontana, showed us how everything worked and gave helpful tips on where to find things like groceries nearby. She also added a few items to the fridge which was most welcome on arrival.

WiFi and satellite TV worked very well, water pressure was great and the rain-style shower was a delight (although the lack of a shower curtain made for a wet floor). There was lots of cupboard space and thoughtful touches like full-length mirrors but the jewel was the wonderful patio. Nothing like sitting outside surrounded by flowers and birds and enjoying morning coffee or a glass of Santorini wine.

The location is ideal, just a few minutes walk to the port and all of its restaurants and shops yet far enough away to enjoy the quiet of the neighbourhood, especially at night.

This is a special place that we'll be sure to return to when we next visit Naxos.
