Villa Kali Thea is a modern, beautifully maintained family villa with stunning mountain and sea views. It is located in a fantastic rural location next to a national park and a number of superb beaches. It has been individually designed and built by one of the best architects on Naxos and provides modern, light and airy accommodation sleeping 4/5 + a cot. The villa is our family holiday home and therefore we have thoughtfully furnished and equipped it for our own needs as well as that of our guests to provide a real 'home from home'. There are 2 ground floor bedrooms, 1 has a king-sized bed and spacious en-suite shower room, the other has twin beds. Both have air-conditioning, ceiling fans, built-in wardrobes/drawers and patio doors opening onto a terrace with ample space to sit or sunbathe. The upstairs open plan kitchen/dining/living area is a light, airy space with stunning mountain and sea views and a large balcony terrace. There is also a lower covered terrace and garden.

Our Local Agent: The rental rates include the following services of our local agents, an English lady who has lived on Naxos for many years. For a relaxing start to your holiday she can meet you at the port or airport on your arrival. She can help transfer you directly to the villa or, if you are hiring a car, they can help with the transfer of your luggage and accompany you to the villa. She will then familiarise you with the property and the surrounding area and act as an emergency contact for the duration of your stay. We can provide good maps / directions for independent travellers. Our agent can also help with the pre-booking of a hire car.

About Sarah & Graham Kingdon

We are an English couple who loved travelling for many years including hopping around the Greek Islands. However we continually found that we kept wanting to return to beautiful Naxos year on year hence our decision when our family came along to build our own Villa.

Sarah & Graham Kingdon purchased this villa in 2007

Why Sarah & Graham Kingdon chose Cyclades

We have been travelling to Naxos for many years and loved the beaches and friendliness of the Naxian people. As we started our own family we decided to buy a plot of land and build our own Villa. By doing so we have been able to develop a property that is just perfect for us and indeed for our guests. It provides the perfect family home in the beautiful surroundings of the stunning Greek islands!

What makes this villa unique

We have built the property to take advantage of the fantastic views to the local beaches and across the Aegean towards Santorini, Ios, Paros and the other local Cycladic Islands. Whilst in a small development of Villas the property retains its privacy and is safe for families to enjoy the local countryside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Having visited Naxos 29 years ago, we returned with some trepidation- but despite some considerable change along the coast, it's still the best of all the islands we've visited- beautiful beaches and scenery, good local food- Naxos has everything!



Villa Kali Thea is the "Icing on the Cake" - the best accomodation that we've ever stayed in, in Greece- Brilliantly well equipped and so quiet!



Altogether a wonderful Holiday!

Alyko is a peaceful and relaxed setting that benefits not only from a wonderful countryside location with stunning mountain views, but also just a 5 minute walk from the villa brings you to the beautiful sweeping bay that consists of the lovely sandy beaches of Gylfada, Kastraki & Mikra Vigla. The headland adjacent to the beach has been designated a nature reserve, this has allowed the area to maintain its natural rugged beauty. On the way to the beach there is a very good family run taverna with a large swimming pool. Further tavernas, small supermarkets, bakeries and beautiful beaches are within walking distance or 5-10 min drive. This is also an ideal base to explore the island from. With its fabulous beaches, picturesque villages, imposing mountains, lush valleys & historical sites, Naxos has something for everyone. Activities such as windsurfing, kite surfing, diving, cycling, walking & horse riding are all available locally.

Other Activities: Kite surfing

Wonderful family villa close to beach and Taverna

  • 5 of 5

This lovely villa was perfected located and equipped for a relaxing island holiday.

Everything about staying here was made easy from the booking, arriving, staying, leaving to deposit return. Both Sarah (owner) and Barbara (Island rep) was very communicative and helpful and took all the stress away of planning a trip away with a young child.

The villa was a joy to stay in and had everything you needed to enjoy the stay there. Little things like extra adaptors for night lights, walking maps and guide books. Well equipped kitchen and comfortable furniture. It was nice being an upside down layout so you could enjoy the terrace and views from the upstairs lounge and patio while little one was in bed downstairs.

The beaches close by were amazing and so quiet while we were there. Easy access and gorgeous clear water. The Taverna v close by had very tasty local food and they let us use their pool for free. The location of the villa made it very easy to drive up into the mountains for walking and biking and exploring so lots to do if you didn't feel like sitting around the whole time.

Really handy that there was a market close by but it was very expensive so we would recommend stocking up in the main town before heading to the villa.

We had a wonderful stay here and would definitely recommend it to other people looking to stay on this lovely Greek island.

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

The villa was exactly what we expected, all the equipment you could need (IF youwanted to stay in and cook) and in a very quiet agricultural area. One taverna was very close by and three others within walking distance if you like walking, which was a great way to walk off the calories from our meals. Lovely beaches all round. It was unexpectedly hot on our first week so I appreciated the shaded terrace downstairs to cool off while my husband roasted upstairs in the sun. Would definitely go back again.

A lovely villa on a lovely island

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Villa Kali Thea. The villa was very clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Barbara, who looks after it, was very helpful and knowledgeable about the island.Nothing was too much trouble. The owners arranged car hire for us which was waiting at the airport when we arrived. The weather was very good and the island was quiet which we prefer. We explored all over and saw some spectacular scenery, there are lovely beaches nearby. There are excellent restaurants within easy distance. The balcony was great for breakfast, sitting in the sun or watching the sunset. We certainly hope to return in the near future.

Lovely house, perfect location for quiet vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely perfect from day one, the owner's agent having booked a car which was waiting for us at the port. Every detail was explained to us and we were given all the necessary information about good tavernas and stores around.

The house is lovely, very well maintained, and is exactly as described in the listing.

It is very well equipped (from barbecue to beach towels), and within walking distance to beautiful sand beaches.

Only negative point : our stay was too short!

We surely would recommend the villa and would love to go back there for a longer period!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our one week stay at this villa and it was superb. The location was excellent, the inside is beautifully finished and furnished with care and comfort in mind. The owner arranged for us to be met at the airport by his property manager who was most helpful. She arranged a rental car and led us to the villa. She even arranged for the small supermarket to open for us on the Easter Monday and later taught me how to clean the calamari I couldn't resist buying at the fish store in Naxos Town. We went hiking in the countryside every day after a beautiful breakfast on the patio upstairs. There are excellent tavernas nearby for times we didn't want to cook. Thank you for such a wonderful time.
