After an island-hopping holiday, we chose to return to Naxos and find somewhere in the old town. Despina's was the first place we came to. That was 15 years ago and we've never looked back. Despina and her daughter-in-law Nina are unfailingly welcoming and we quickly felt like we'd made friends. The rooms are spotlessly clean and excellent value - despite the change to the Euro, the price has only increased marginally in that period. Although not all the rooms have a balcony, most have a view of the harbour and the Portara. And if you're room doesn't have a view? The flat roof is open to all, and is the perfect place to watch the sun set over the Paros before heading out of the evening, just two minutes to the bars and restaurants by the harbour. One thing though: the breeze tends to gust through, so take care not to let the doors slam!
