About the property

8 studio apartments just a 2-minute walk from the wonderful beach of Kalantos!

Kalados Studios are situated on the southern part of Naxos on the hill over Kalados Bay which is one of the few natural, leeward bays of Naxos. A wonderful beach surrounded by the sea on one side and a small lake on the other side. A magical landscape with crystal clear water. From the beach you can clearly see the islands of Heraklia and Skinousa. If you are traveling by boat between Heraklia and Naxos, you will definitely feel the need to drop the anchor in Kalados Bay. To get here by car, you need to drive 20km from Filoti (about 40km from Chora). Nevertheless, it is an asphalted road almost up to the port and the beach now, which is easy and safe to drive on!

There are 8 one-room studios on the property five of which are twin (or double bed) studios. There are also triple studios and quad studios. There is air-conditioning and TV in every studio. All of them have ensuite shower rooms and are equipped with kitchenettes which allow you to be completely self-catering if you choose to be so. You can see each one of them on Staying in our rooms, you will find the peace and quiet you need to escape the fast pace of modern life. What’s more, the beach is just a two-minute-walk away! Enjoy the scent and the view of the sea from your balcony or stone paved courtyard and sleep with the sounds of the waves in your ears. At our family tavern, again on the property, you will have the chance to taste traditional Greek dishes at reasonable prices in a wonderful environment with sea view and excellent service. You will be able to enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, your coffee or dessert in our stone paved yard. We offer locally produced meat, vegetables and cheeses, Naxian wine, hospitality and quality. Our tavern is situated over the little church of Saint Theodoros and it is facing the port of Kalados. From our yard, you have unlimited view to the sea and the whole of Kalados Bay, but you are protected from the hot summer sun under our green trees. Combine your food with local wine and choose a homemade traditional Naxian fruit preserve with ice cream or yoghurt for dessert! We will be waiting for you in one of the last unspoilt and peaceful places of Naxos. For the traveler who wants to escape the overcrowded beaches and noise of the city center!

About Zeta Griva

I come from Greece's mainland and specifically from the beautiful town of Livadeia. I've always loved tourism and after 5 years that I had been working for an outgoing travel agency in Athens, I realized that what I really want, is to help foreigners explore the beauties of my own country. Thus I moved to Naxos and have been working in incoming tourism for the past 6 years. The legend says that a visitor will either love or hate Naxos already from his first visit. Well, with me it was undoubtedly the first. I fell in love with the island, I found "the One" on the island and now it is my new home. And I invite you all to visit this magic place, that on its 435.000 squad meters offers generously all you know and like about Greece.Wonderful beaches, transparent waters, great food and genuine hospitality.

Zeta Griva purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Zeta Griva chose Naxos

Elias and Giorgia, the owners of Kalados studios, bought this property many years ago because of the great view, the proximity to the beach and the tranquillity that the area offers. Being carpenters they were able to do all the woodwork themselves, with the help of their 2 sons. Anna, their daughter in law and my future husband's sister, came to Kalados 3 years ago and started running this business. With her loving character and long experience in customer service, implemented the dream of Elias and Giorgia, for Kalados Studios to be a second "sweet home" for the people who chose it for their vacation. When I first visited Kalados, I was surprised by the unspoilt setting, the long beach, the great food and mostly the warm family ambience amongst the owners and their guests. So, when the owners asked me to help them with their reservations, I didn't even think twice. I think Kalados is the most relaxing place in Naxos and Kalados studios offer the most genuine hospitality, the greatest views and the most tasteful food. I believe in the potential of this place and I want other people to get to know it too.

What makes this apartment unique

Kalados Studios is not for people who crave to see and be seen. It's for people who need to escape the 'song and dance' of the popular and crowded parts of Naxos. People who need a calm place 2 min on foot from a quiet beach to relax, swim and bask in the sun. Our studios were finished in 2012 so everything is new. We don't offer luxury but everything is kept simple and clean. Our tavern offers the best samples of Greek and Mediterranean cuisine, using the best of Naxos and Greece materials. A traveler staying in Kalados would definitely find a place away from it all offering Greek hospitality and cuisine! We honestly look forward to seeing you in Kalados!

Friendly taverna in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

This is a really lovely place to have lunch or dinner. Stunning views of Kalados Bay enjoyed in the shade of a plumb tree with a cold beer gets things off to a great start. The owner and staff are super friendly and the food cooked up by 'Manoli the Magician' to die for. The only drawback, for Brits anyway this year, comes with the bill. This is not a cheap place and if ordering the Fish bring a boat load of Euros.

Worth it though - a real gem.

An unforgettable experience!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 days in this paradise away from it all, and we enjoyed every minute!

Yes, it's far from the nearest village, supermarket etc. But if you are looking for peace; unbelievable beautiful location; lovely and nearly empty beaches; great opportunities to explore wild life (we saw among other species Griffon Vultures, Eleonora Falcons, Kestrels, Lesser Kestrels, flying fish and even dolphins - all from the great balconys just outside the studios); nice, clean and newly built studios and not the least incredibly friendly and hospitable hosts - this is the place!

On top of that enjoy the delicious, honest and well tasting homemade food at the taverna.

The place has a lovely atmosphere all together and gets our very best recommendations!

Pour se ressourcer au calme

  • 5 of 5

Un endroit idyllique loin de tout (voiture indispensable). Mais il y a quand même une taverne au pied des studios pour se restaurer. Un très très bon accueil de la part d'Ana. Des studios confortables, bien équipés et spacieux. Nous avons passé ainsi une très bonne semaine à Naxos grâce à Ana et sa famille.

Nous recherchions le calme tout en n' etant pas certain de vouloit etre loin de tout (village le plus proche a 28km). Le lieu est tres beau, la plage propre et il y a la possibilite de faire de belles ballades. Les studios sont bien penses, sont spacieux, bien decores, tres bien entretenus, la terrasse est aussi spacieuse. L' acceuil est excellent, Anna est une tres bonne cuisiniere et le choix est varie. Nous avions prevu de rester 3 nuits nous sommes restes 6 nuits. Nous avons tout de meme decide de tenter notre chance ailleurs pour nos 3 dernieres nuits. Le point negatif de Kalados est qu' apres y avoir sejourne les autres options ne font pas le poids sur le plan qualite, prix.
