A. Perfect Experience on Naxos

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I fulfilled a 7-year dream--to live for a month on Naxos and truly experience this amazing island. We chose Villa Orientalis to be our home. It was perfect--location, space, amenities, charm, comfort---right next to the Kastroi situated on a quiet lane. Bruno and Luison made it all so easy and Bruno provided a list of what to do and where to eat that made our stay exceptional. Each suggestion was more than we could hope and each adventure made our stay so memorable. Joy was a great help and kept the villa clean each week so I could truly be on vacation. We even had friends visit for our first week so we truly explored to give them a proper taste of Naxos. We left today with great sadness. Fortunately the weather just turned cold and windy--or we might have figured out how to stay longer. Thank you, Bruno and Luison, for creating the truly iconic home to stay in Naxos Town. Best regards, Harriet and Richard Lowe

Wonderful "home away from home"!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay in this home! It is beautiful inside and in a great location. Also there are two wonderful restaurants within a few steps. We stayed in the downstairs bedroom with the very modern bathroom. The place was immaculate. Also Joy the woman who greeted us was very helpful and friendly. She spoke fluent English, and we enjoyed going to her bookstore in town. The internet worked well too. We rented a car and spent two days driving all over the island. We especially enjoyed the towns of Halki and Apelranthos. We loved our stay in Naxos and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place.

An Absolute Gem !

  • 5 of 5

What a gem! We were travelling as 2 couples and Villa Orientalis was just perfect to allow us the common space to be together and the room to be apart. The upstairs is accessed via an internal spiral staircase, or outside via a winding staircase to the upper terrace. Upstairs bedroom equipped with a very comfortable queen bed, a desk and a full bathroom (toilet, sink, rain shower). The downstairs bedroom has 2 super comfortable single beds, a bathroom with large rain shower and vanity with 2 sinks. There is a separate toilet room directly beside.

The kitchen is incredibly well stocked to prepare all your meals should you decide to do so. There is even a charcoal BBQ! We ate out every lunch and made most dinners at the villa, eating on the beautiful upstairs terrace. We have been home for a week and that terrace is the thing I miss most!

My communication with Bruno prior to our arrival was prompt, professional and he had ultimate patience answering all of my questions. He was a pleasure to deal with. Joy is your contact in Naxos and she met us at the port and walked us to the villa. She explained everything and made sure we were comfortable and happy before she left – great service !

Everything is a five minute walk – a wonderful grocery store, parking and the waterfront. We would highly recommend Villa Orientalis to anyone lucky enough to stay there! You will love the villa and fall in love with the beautiful island of Naxos! Make sure you get out and explore the many villages and beaches.

Absolutely wonderful house and location

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully appointed and modern home is probably the nicest home I've rented thru this site in 10 years of membership. It was spacious, equipped with the latest in equipment, nicely decorated, and very well located in the pedestrian zone of Naxos town away from traffic, but still an easy 5 minute walk to food stores, etc. In 10 minutes we were able to walk to a beautiful & very long sandy beach for swimming. The local manager speaks good English, and was extremely helpful, especially in an emergency involving an injured tourist. The owner was a pleasure to deal with. We so enjoyed our stay here, and highly recommend Villa Orientalis

Greek Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A perfect home away from home. The description and photos were true and accurate. Very spacious and the two storey house was fully equipped and beautifully furnished and clean. The owners provide a laptop computer and cell phone with the numbers of local contact people.

There are 3 outside decks or patios and we had all our meals in the lower level patio. The only issue with the upper deck Is the fact there is a rooftop restaurant next door which may be a little noisy in the busy summer months but on the positive side it was a landmark to help us find our way back home and the food was good.

The house was located in the heart of the old town where there is only pedestrian traffic and one could easily walk

anywhere in town. There is a lovely beach in town which is only a 15 -20 minute walk from the house. The owners were helpful and answered all our questions before we arrived and even provided a bottle of champagne for us. Joy who manages the property on site is very helpful and even baked us an anniversary wedding cake and came to our ceremony.

The house which was renovated in an authentic greek style made one feel like we were living in a true local fashion and the fact no car is needed as the town is small enough to walk most places made it stress free. The town (and whole island) was very safe. There are literally hundreds of restaurants throughout the town and do take in some of the activities in the castle which hosts entertainment most evenings.

We would highly recommend Villa Orientallis.

super séjour à Naxos

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passés 15 jours fabuleux à Naxos dans cette maison magnifique. Outre qu'elle est décorée avec beaucoup de goût, on s'y sent comme chez soi. Elle dispose de tout ce qui est nécessaire et au-delà. Elle est aussi particulièrement bien située, au cœur de la vieille ville, mais à l'écart du bruit la nuit, tout en restant à proximité à pied de la plage d'Agios Georgios. Nous avions loué une voiture pour nous balader dans l'île et la maison est aussi bien située de ce point de vue puisque le principal parking public gratuit est à environ 200m derrière la maison . Je recommande donc très vivement cette location qui est à tout point de vue parfaite.
