Hi, what are you looking for?


Naxos, the fertile island of the Aegean

Naxos, the largest island of the Cyclades, is often described as a destination that can satisfy any taste. Naxos is a place that has something for everyone, such as beautiful, white-sand beaches, traditional villages that have managed to preserve their architecture, important archaeological sites, and, for sport-loving visitors, numerous hiking paths and windsurfing spots. Naxos is famous since ancient times for its fertility, and so it is well-known for its olives and high-quality wine. You can be sure that the food in the island is delicious.

Naxos has a rich history, which has left behind many archeological artifacts and temples. For visitors interested in archaeology, Naxos is a must-see destination. The most famous archeological site on the island is the Portara, or Great Door. It is a massive marble doorway, located on the islet of Ariadne, which is connected to the mainland with a strip of land. The Portara is part of a temple of Apollo, which explains why the temple faces the island of Delos, Apollo’s birthplace.

On the western coast of Naxos, only 14 minutes away from the main town (Chora) and port, is the resort of Agios Prokopios. Located nearby, above a beach blessed with clear turquoise waters, is the graceful 18 Grapes Boutique Hotel, one of the leading 5 stars hotels in Naxos.

18 Grapes is a memorable hotel that combines upscale services and elegant luxury with world class hospitality. Located in a comfortable and serene location, it offers a large number of different rooms that are available for your choosing, all with a calming earthy palette and soft minimalism.

The choice depends on you, and 18 Grapes is able to provide it, in the most unforgettable way.
