So, after the owner met us at the Naxos airport and guided us to the villa (also taking pieces of our luggage as they didn't fit in our tiny rental car) we were pleased to see that the online pictures did not lie. It was beautiful. The owners continued to provide advice and resources throughout the week we stayed. We were two families with two grown teens each and loved having our own spaces but also a full kitchen. Our grown kids were able to walk down to the beach no problem. The roads are dusty below so running and walking weren't quite as easy nearby but we did manage to walk to the bakery for morning coffee and delicious treats. Having the pool was key after days of exploring nearby towns in the hot sun. We had meals cooked at the house twice (arranged by the owner) and although a bit on the pricy side, so worth it to enjoy the house in the evening and not navigate the hill and roads at night.
