Kamari Villa was built in 2007 on the South West coast of Naxos, Island of Apollo and Ariadne. The villa is 18 km away from Naxos town ( Chora ), approximately 20-25 min. drive on the main road. In the middle of a 4000 m2 property (half of which is planted with Olive trees), the house is only 150m away from a 3 km beach , (extending all the way to Mikri Vigla). The traditional Greek island element, that can be sensed straight away by the visitor, is enhanced by the presence of an 18th century white Chapel, that luckily exists inside the property. The owner has made sure that the little dream like church has it's own entrance and stone built back yard where ceremonies can take place. The only natural boundary separating the villa from the shore, is a beautiful salt lake (Aliki). Many different species of birds use the lake as a shelter, making the landscape even more unique. The cedar forest of the greater area is well known as one of the biggest and most interesting in Europe and tourists all over the world visit this natural attraction of almost 800000 square meters, just to enjoy the view of trees coming out of the sand. Due to this forest, the whole area is protected by EU Natura 2000 program, as a wild life shelter and therefore, hunting and free camping is forbidden all year long. Although, just a few miles away from the most touristic beaches of Naxos ( Ag. Prokopios, Ag. Anna, Plaka, etc. ), Kamari Villa is located in one of the most peaceful, quiet and private areas of the South coast, where the guest has the luxury of totally relaxing, living in nature, without missing out on any of the contemporary comforts. It would not be an exaggeration to say that in many cases, one could enjoy a morning or late evening swim in the beach in front of the villa, completely by themselves… Moreover, the guest has access to quite a few other beaches in walking distances (500m-1.5 km), varying from private little bays surrounded by rocks, to long sandy beaches next to the cedar forest. Kamari Villa was built according to the rules of Cycladic architecture and was decorated by the owner himself in a minimal style that is inspired by the old, traditional houses, found in two of the most beautiful and historical mountain villages of Naxos: Apiranthos and Filoti (the village that the owner originates from). The Villa consists of 3 separate two room apartments , 1 huge shared living room, 1 playing room, 1 little warehouse, 2 large closed verandas and 1 big terrace covered with pergola on the ground floor, 2 covered balconies and 1 open air terrace on the 1st floor. The different verandas, balconies and terraces offer a truly breathtaking view of the sunset, the Aegean sea, the salt lake and the island of Paros, right opposite to where the property is, making the whole living experience, simply unforgettable . All areas (400 sq. meters in total) are available and can be used by the guests. Each one of the three apartments (2 of them on the 1st floor and 1 on the ground floor), has its own entrance and consists of a large bedroom w/ queen size double beds, one bathroom w/shower and one living room with fully equipped kitchen and additional sofa beds. The 1st floor apartments have got their own private balconies. The main living room (80 sq. meters) has also got a separate bathroom, a kitchenette with pass and access to 3 different verandas, one of which can be used as an outdoor dining room. There is also an indoor dining area, a TV/lounge area and a library/music/chill out area. The main living room is connected to the upper floor apartments with an indoor staircase. Finally, in the playing room, located in the basement, guests can enjoy table tennis all day long in a safe environment with a separate bathroom and kitchenette. Even though, the fresh Northern Cycladic breeze is more than enough to keep the house cool all through the summer, all bedrooms and main living room are fully air conditioned. Wi-Fi broadband internet is available in all main areas of the villa. The ground floor apartment and main living room are wheelchair accessible. The house is equipped with TV sets in every apartment and a Smart 40” TV in the main living room, a mini stereo hi-fi system, blue ray DVD player, Nintendo Wii game console and of course all indispensible household appliances (Washing machine, filter coffee and espresso coffee machines, multi blender, water boiler, micro wave oven, 2 electrical ovens, 5 refrigerators etc.). There is private parking area within the property. Although we strongly recommend that you rent a car, which will be useful for your daily excursions (Naxos is the biggest Cycladic island and it really takes days if not weeks to explore all its beauties), there is public transportation every hour from 8 am-8 pm and a bus that takes you to Naxos town. A bus stop is right outside the property, on the main road. The guests can have lunch or dinner at one of the 5 taverns nearby, (2 of which in walking distance), including the famous “Axiotissa” tavern, just 3 min drive from the house, which has been voted by critics as one of the best taverns in Greece. All restaurants offer delicious traditional dishes (Naxos is well known for its great kitchen) all cooked with fresh Naxian products. For your everyday needs, there is a mini market, just 150 meters from the house. The owner is a music writer, orchestrator and record producer, living in Athens and speaks fluent English and adequately good French. He will be available and more than happy to provide any kind of information needed regarding the house, the area and life in Naxos in general. He strongly believes that the actual feeling of living in this home cannot be described by words or captured by any photographic lense.
