A few words about the property

"Kamari" in greek means "Pride".

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.

About George Boussounis

George is a professional music writer, performer, orchestrator and music producer. He lives and works in Athens, where he owns and manages a recording studio. He has also studied medicine in the university of Athens.

Both his parents come from Naxos, so he has spent nearly every summer of his childhood and teenage life there, in a litle stone built cottage, very close to where Kamari villa is now.

He inherited the land from his beloved late aunty Irini and decided to built the villa, initially designed to be a residential recording studio for overseas artists.

After spending a couple of summers in the villa, he felt that this is more of a home than a professional facility, full of beautiful uplifting energy and an incredible peaceful aura, meant to be enjoyed by everyone that loves nature and the Greek Islands.

Perfect villa for a family of five adults

  • 5 of 5

Our week on Naxos was the beginning of a special trip. I lived in Greece from 1970-75 as a teenager. I had only been back once in 1979. Thirty eight years later I have come back to Greece with my husband, three adult children and their significant others to celebrate my 60th birthday and retirement. I picked Naxos for its size and sustainable lifestyle. I also picked it because I saw the Kamari Villa and knew it would be perfect for us. It was perfect! It was big enough to give everyone space and privacy. The common living spaces were comfortable and homey. The view was phenomenal and the walking distance to the beach was better than any of us expected. The kitchen was really well equipped also. We loved having a ping pong table down in the game room. George is a fantastic host! He welcomed us in true Greek fashion, making us feel at home immediately. He recommended good tavernas for dinner and even joined us one night at one that turned to be our best meal on Naxos! The little church on the property was a beautiful addition which we enjoyed visiting each day.

The market down the street had everything we needed. It's such a convenience to be able to walk to a market for anything you might need.

Thank you George for sharing this villa which played a big part in our family celebration! We now consider you a true family friend. Efharisto poli!

A great destination vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I booked Villa Kamari for a 50th birthday celebration, which I daydreamed about for two years. My dream was to rent a large house, with a spacious living room and a balcony with a beautiful view, where my friends and family can gather to chat, eat, play and relax. At Villa Kamari my dreams were fulfilled! I could not ask for a better house.

We stayed for two weeks from late June to early July. The first week our friends joined us. We were four families. The second week, when my friends left, I got to spend time with my family (of four), my mother, my aunt, my sister and my little nephew.

The house is beautiful, spacious, and is full of modern day accommodations, including AC. The owner George Boussounis is a very gracious and generous host. He was very patient and helpful when our group of twelve descended upon Naxos! He was full of information and attentive to us throughout our stay. He greeted us with delicacies from Naxos upon our arrival and helped us with our lagguages upon our departure.

Naxos Island is beautiful and interesting. The location of Villa Kamari away from the hustle and bustle of the city center was to our liking. The market, the taverns and the beach nearby are very convenient though with our rental cars we were able to explore more throughout our stay.

It was a vacation of a lifetime for me and my family. I highly recommend Villa Kamari!

A Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 2 couples, so the house was larger than we needed, but we truly appreciated its spaciousness and comfort. The bedroom suites on the upper level are private, roomy, and nicely appointed. The main level is a lovely gathering spot with a comfortable sitting area, large dining table, and functional kitchen. There is a large west-facing deck off the main level with a dining area and adjacent deck space with outdoor lounge furniture where we relaxed to enjoy the sunsets. We happily took advantage of the long stretch of sandy beach just a five-minute walk down the trail leading from the house. The neighborhood market has fresh pastries in the morning, and the three nearby restaurants we sampled were wonderful. George, the property owner, could not have been more accommodating. He was prompt in his responses to all our emails and happy to answer questions. When we arrived in Naxos Town, he met us at the ferry, helped us with our car rental, and led us to the house for a thorough introduction to the property. He was a wealth of information about sites to see, where to eat, and what to do. He was thoroughly enjoyable, and most helpful -- a very generous host. Naxos is a beautiful island with great beaches and hiking, charming hillside villages, and lots of history. We highly recommend Villa Kamari as a great place to stay for enjoying all that Naxos has to offer.

Owner's Response: Dear Mary Rae, Steve, Marcia and Michael: It was my pleasure and honor to have you as my guests. Thank you so much for your kind words although I feel I didn't do that much for you. I really hope the next time you visit my island, it will be for a little longer. My warmest regards, George

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 8; 6 adults and 2 children. This beautiful house worked flawlessly for us. It has 3 separate suites which allowed for everyone to have their own space as each suite is fully self contained. In addition there is a large common area on the main floor where we socialized and ate all our meals together. Each of the suites is comfortable and air conditioned. The main floor kitchen, although small, is well equipped and met all our needs. It would be easy to have 15 people sleeping here as each suite can accommodate 4 people and on the main floor there are 3 day beds that would allow another 3 people to sleep. The main floor has large balconies overlooking the nearby beach and from which you can view amazing sunsets.

George, the owner of the house, is a very nice fellow. He responded quickly to all emails I sent him. On the day of our arrival George met us at the port. After collecting our rental cars he took us to his house which is about 18 kilometres from the port. George was very helpful and answered the many questions we had for him about Naxos. He kept in touch with us to make sure our stay was comfortable. He is a true gentleman.

The location of the house is great. It is away from the hustle and bustle of the port area, but close enough if you must go into town. There are many beautiful beaches within a few minutes drive. Also nearby is a small, but well equipped market, plus several small tavernas.

This was a memorable family holiday for us because of George, his beautiful home and the fantastic weather we had on Naxos. I do not hesitate in recommending this home.

Owner's Response: Dear Brian and Dora, Nessa and Dino, Lyndsey and Chris, Isabella and Sofia: It has been an honor for me to meet your amazing family! It is always a great thing for a host to know that their guests have had a good stay, but nothing compares to this feeling of being able to connect with them and share some special moments. If I don't make it to Vancouver, I really look forward to seeing you again here in Naxos or even Athens. Thank you for everything, All the best for a great and warm winter in Canada!! George

Beautiful Property, Beautiful Property Owner

  • 5 of 5

As others have unanimously pointed out, the house is both large and beautiful, the property is private, quaint, and convenient (beach access, near to country store, several excellent restaurants, etc.), and George (the property owner) is kind, personable, knowledgeable/helpful, and a great table tennis partner/competitor.

You are sure to find both the villa and George at once relaxing and invigorating. If you're lucky, you might be able to meet up with him for beers in Athens too.

Amazing location in Naxos

  • 5 of 5

The house is very confortable also for big groups as it is large and well equipped. Amazing location facing the lagoon, a beautiful beach and the sunset. The area is out of the crowded part of the island. There is a market and a few taverna around. The owner is very kind and helpful since the reservation and during your stay. To be recommended !!
