The House

A few years ago, more or less by chance, in the evening, we ended up on the island of Naxos and were immediately impressed by the beautiful lively boulevard with a multitude of restaurants and other idyllic occasions. In the years since, we have returned and have further discovered the beautiful island, the overwhelming nature, the deep blue sea, the beautiful miles of sandy beaches and all the often picturesque villages. For us, but also many with us, Naxos is the most beautiful island in the Cyclades. But in recent years we have also become acquainted with the friendly and hospitable residents of the island of Naxos.

A few years later we came up with a plan to stay there longer and so we started looking for an apartment or something similar. And again, more or less by coincidence, we ended up in the village of Agios Arsenios, after Filoti the largest village on the island, where an apartment was for sale, but it wasn’t really. Part of it was still standing and the rest was a ruin, so really Greek. But we were immediately charmed by the place in the village, almost the highest point in the village and with a view of the sea and the island of Paros.

We then discussed with an architect from the island the possibilities for demolishing what was still standing and then building a completely new real Greek house on this spot. Subsequently, in a number of years we have realized our dream house “Spiti Helena Agersani”, where we stay regularly and we hope that you will stay there just as pleasant and enjoy all that the island of Naxos has to offer. But beware, once you have been to Naxos you will love that island just like us and you cannot help but come back, perhaps again and again.
