1. Re: Bungalow or villa near Naxos city

You probably are referring to a place near St. George (or Ag. Giorgios) beach, which is directly adjacent to Naxos Town (not Naxos City... thank god, it's not big enough to be a City!).

It sounds as if you are looking for a free-standing building; oddly there are not many of those near to a beach-- they tend to be inland, execept at a very far beach, and you want to walk into Naxos Town.

However, many of the lodgings do have 2-room units -- one would be a BR with 2 beds or a double bed, the 2nd would be kitchenette/dining area & 2 beds that double as couches by day. Here's a place that's well-reviewed by TA, is 50 meters from the beach & has 2-room units:

--- you can google Villa naxia TA for guest reviews.

Here's another, which is on a side street going right onto the beach, no sea view from balconies & don't know about ground floor, but u could enquire thegreektravel.com/naxos/antony/index.html

Here's a good website to review possible apts & contact the renters directly.

NOTE -- ones that say "only 100 Metres from town Square" are too Close! ... here is a skymap to show you The layout vividly. www.skymap.gr/?ElementId=59724&Category=0

When emailing you can use names of cafes etc on the Map to ask about exact locale, such as "are u close to Meltemi Restaurant" or Are u closer to the beach than Hotel Spiro.

Good luck in your search!

Litsa, those pictures are lovely I have looked at them before.... but alas, as you know from NYC, it's all about location, location, location.

That new villa complex, which is acknowledged to be quite attractive and upscale, is not in the more accessible area of St. George -- especially if people want to walk to get places. THe Stelida area is off the far end of the beach, not beachfront, distant from town & beach, and is near a marshy area that creates possibility of mosquitoes as the season moves on, according to TA reports from past travelers.

I also have a feeling it may be beyond the budget range of many St. George Beach family visitors.

Not sure what your budget is but your description of your ideal place would seem to be St George beach area. It is an easy stroll to Naxos town, and is a beach location.

I have not seen anything that resembles a Villa at St George. I did some research for some friend bringing a large family to Naxos this summer and anything resembling a villa is located within a kilometer of a beach and no where near Naxos Town.

There are hotels at St George with one and two bedroom units wiht kitchens.

Google Hotel Spiros for excample. It is a great little hotel that meets all your wants but is about 100 meters from the beach with limited ocean views. The problem is it might not be withing your budget range as a villa would be much more expensive that Spiros and its 50 Euro par night charge for late May early June.
