“Wonderful stay at Scala!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We were delighted to meet Nikos at the ferry who greeted us with a smile and a warm hand shake. This was to be the pattern for the next 4 days-a great host who shared with us his plans for himself and his wife and family on Naxos Island. And he went the extra mile to show us Filoti where his grandparents lived at one time. He made sure that we saw the interior of the island to complete our stay. Breakfast was perfect-sharing with us his own home-grown melons and watermelon which happened to be a favorite of mine. And we really loved that he let us taste his home-made wine which tasted like port, and was very good.
We were a little spoiled at the last island where we stayed and found the fridge stocked with wine, water, beer, soft drinks, iced tea and were a little surprised that we had to buy our water at Scala. Also our towels were freshly changed every day at our last place-so we would recommend that towels be changed at least every other day. Normally we wouldn't say this but when the weather is very hot we shower often.
We liked Nikos's Mother who cooked for us- thank you; you did a very fine job.
We would not hesitate to come back. Hopefully we shall.

Dear Zoe
Thank you very much about all the good words for us and our place.
It was really great to have you and your husband in Scala and be our guest. It was for me a pleasure to saw you my island and to discover some of the villages since it was end of the season
and our work wasn't so much. You should tell me about the towels because the woman who was taking care the rooms didn't notice that you didn't have beach towels with you.
Usually we give beach towels to our guests and they are not using the room towels.
So when you will be back ask for beach towels and do not hesitate to tell us anything that it will make us better.
Many regards to you and John.

Scala Apartments is a wonderful place: georgous view of the sea, quiet, clean... not bad surprises... The owner is always available to help you to enjoy your time in Naxos and his mother is a very good chef, each morning I enjoyed very much her home made greek cookies and cake. 5 minutes away, you can find faboulous beaches and it is 20 minutes away from the main city of the island. If you want to experience greek culture, I would definitevely recommand you to visit Scala Apartments.

Staying at Scala Apartments in Kastraki, Naxos, offers you the great opportunity of meeting the real Greece.
The residence is located at about 25 km from the Naxos Chora, not very far from the seaside.
A beautiful, large garden, not far from the main way, with a lot of flowers, trees and green grass, with umbrellas and comfortable sun beds and chairs, houses some bungalows, built in the typical architecture of the Greek islands and a small but excellent restaurant. The studios are spacious and simply furnished. Each studio has an individual large veranda, offering place for relaxation and nice sea views.
But, it is a pity to spend your time in the veranda, as you have the opportunity to visit the island in order to discover its history, secrets and beauty (you need a car for this), to see some of the most interesting villages of the island (Filoti is one of them), to climb on the Zeus Mountain, to take a bath in the Aegean See on one of the numerous lovely beaches located at reasonable distances from the Scala Apartments or at the end of the day, to have marvelous chats in the garden, with Nikos, the owner of the estate, accompanied by a glass of good homemade wine.
The most valuable asset of the Scala Apartments is represented by the owners, the Moustakis family that have been extremely kind and caring, doing their best to make us feel well and they succeeded!
Mrs Maria, Nikos’ mother is not only a very nice and pleasant lady, but also she is an exquisite cook, preparing the most delicious Greek dishes. I will never forget her homemade jam, her tasty cakes, the extraordinary flavored Greek coffee and all the good things she made for us.
Nikos offered us the most accurate information about places of interest, roads to follow, beaches suited to our requirements, places for good food, connecting this information with local stories and with the ancient and modern history of the island and of the country. Also, he made us acquainted with local specialties such as Thyme honey and Arsenico. Discussing with him was not only a real pleasure, but an excellent occasion to learn a lot about Greece.
For us, staying at Nikos’ Scala Apartments it was an extraordinary chance to meet a wonderful Greek family, to understand the Greek life and also to make good friends!

Dear Daniela
We would like to thank you for your review. People like you and your family deserve more.
It was a pleasure to have you in Scala and you were the best company for ending this summer.
Especially the long conversation that we had about our countries and how close are the Balcanic nationalities.
Hoping to see you all again. Regards from the Moustakis family.

P.S. The distance from Naxos town to Scala is 16km.

Thanks again
Nikos

Very good place, nicely located, with a very friendly and helpful family owning the place. Our 2 kids 6 and 10 loved it, especially the home cooked food ! We also loved this family style Greek cuisine. Nikos and his wife made us feel a home and gave use plenty of advice to discover the island out of the beaten tracks. I would recommend warmly this place and will certainly return in the near future.

Scala apartments is a nice place with sea views. The studios are very spacious. They are simply furbished. The sea can be admired from the veranda.
There is also a beautiful garden with chairs and tables where you can relax.
But the best thing about this place is the owners. Nikos and his mother really did anything possible to make our vacation better. Maria, Nikos' mother, is an excellent cook ands makes the best greek coffee in the whole world. At breakfast, we really enjoyed the homemade jam, the cookies and the cakes that Maria has prepared for us.
Nikos has helped us with a lot of information about the island - beaches, places to see, roads, places to eat well. But we also enjoyed large conversations in which he really helped us to understand Greece and Naxos. He helped us in many ways and we loved so much staying there that we extended our holidays.

Just returned from Scala Apartments. We had a great time. Wonderful owners Nikos and Evangelista were hospitable and very helpful. The homemade Greek food prepared by Evangelista and Mrs. Maria was amazing. I recommend Scala apartments because of the great service and you are near the most beautiful beaches of Naxos (Pirgakis Beach and Alyko Beach). We plan on returning next year for once again an amazing vacation. Thank you Niko and Evangelista for your kindness. Magda and Gianni Economou

Room Tip: All the rooms are great....We stayed in room 17 which was sea view and great privacy...
