The beautiful Villa Arie sleeps up to eleven guests in five stunning bedrooms. This very special villa is located in Glinado, a picturesque village sprinkled with traditionally styled white and blue houses, friendly tavernas and lots of fresh produce. It is a rural villa though still only 6km from Naxos Town and within very easy reach of superb beaches. Guests staying here enjoy mesmerising views of the sea and the mountains and feel totally away from the stresses and strains of everyday life.
 
Glinado is a delightful village built on the slopes of the mountainside. The main occupation of the locals is cattle breeding and agriculture in one of the most fertile areas of the island. Close by, in the region of Iria, you will discover the sanctuary of Dionysus, an ancient monument dedicated to the God of Wine. Glinado boasts many attractive churches and is close to the popular beaches of Agios Prokopios and Agia Anna. The island of Naxos is blessed with endless stunning sandy beaches, lush valleys, medieval towers, abandoned monasteries, atmospheric mountain villages, market gardens and delicious local produce. If you can bring yourselves to leave your very own Naxos paradise, you will discover amazing landscapes, fields full of sheep and goats, beautiful wildflowers, amazing restaurants, historic buildings, wineries, villages untouched by time and friendly locals. With its giant Portara and colossal sculptures it is like an open-air museum with a very rich history. You will taste prized cheeses, Zamboni, a cured pork, zovla which is braised goats meat with macaroni, the island walnut cake Melachrino and Kitron, a wonderful liqueur that is taken with pudding and cheese. The fertile Tragea Valley, in the heart of Naxos, is home to twelve delightful villages and more than thirty of the most important Byzantine churches in the Aegean. Mount Zas, the highest in the Cyclades, is named after the ruler of Olympus and offers fabulous views and hikes.
 
Villa Arie is built over two main levels but also enjoys semi-levels. The main level is home to a gorgeous open-plan living area with a fantastic kitchen. One of the bedrooms is also located here with a lovely built-in double bed and stylish ensuite bathroom. Much of the villa is designed with gorgeous whitewashed Cycladic curves and built-in furnishings. Trendy accessories and furnishings are added to make a very attractive picture. The lounge area enjoys a fabulous sofa, accent chairs, beautiful wooden coffee tables, a fireplace and a television. There are lots of cute little shelves and wooden features. This is open to the dining area and modern kitchen. The chefs in your group will be delighted with the modern kitchen with its excellent appliances.  The kitchen area leads directly out to the terrace. There is a separate laundry room.
 
The remaining four bedrooms included a room with a bunk bed with the bottom level being a double bed and the top a single. This would be ideal for parents with one child or three children. This room has direct access to the garden and pool and guests use a bathroom adjacent to the bedroom. The semi-ground floor is home to another gorgeous double room with its smart white ensuite bathroom and a balcony. The rooms have all been beautifully designed with curved, open built-in wardrobes and bedside tables. They are simple in design but very lovely and minimal. The beds come with crisp cottons and hotel quality soft furnishings. The semi-first floor offers another gorgeous double with its ensuite and balcony and the master is found on the top floor. This boasts an ensuite bathroom and a private balcony with sensational, panoramic views.
 
Outside, the villa enjoys a superb swimming pool surrounded by sun loungers where you can relax and enjoy your holiday books.

Villa Arie sits on a large landscaped plot in a wonderful rural village. It is peaceful and guests enjoy wonderful sea and mountain views. The village of Glinado is nestled on the slopes of the mountainside, sprinkled with lovely homes, many attractive churches, a bakery and some cafes and restaurants. The main occupation of the locals is cattle breeding and agriculture Close by, in the region of Iria, you will discover the sanctuary of Dionysus, an ancient monument dedicated to the God of Wine.
 
The island of Naxos enjoys glorious, panoramic scenery, stunning views, endless sandy beaches, a lively main town, gorgeous mountain villages, a rich history and a superb dining scene where you will be served delicious local produce. Together with exquisite marble, the emery mines, its fertile land, its geographic location in the Aegean Sea, its pottery and its cuisine are some of the reasons for Naxos’ importance in the Cycladic islands and its popularity.
 
The villa is close to the wonderful beaches of Agios Prokopios, Agios Anna and Plaka. Agios Prokopios is lovely with plenty of watersports, refreshments and gorgeous sands. The tiny chapel dedicated to Saint Prokopios stands on the western side of the beach. Close by, you will find Agios Anna, a quieter version of Agios Prokopios and pink-coloured salt lakes with many birds and other wildlife. Agios St George is on the edge of Naxos Town with its warm shallow water. Aliko is a fabulous beach, backed by a cedar forest which has been declared a protected natural area. Plaka enjoys great waves and is popular with water sports fans. Mikri Vigla was named after the observatory at the top of the cape that was used to watch out between Naxos and Paros to protect the island and from ships of the ancient trading route from Crete to Athens. According to the myth, the southern bay was a hideout for legendary pirates. The beach is very popular with windsurfers and kitesurfers with its perfect wind conditions. On the east of the island, the small quaint harbour of Moutsouna is a great place to eat fresh fish and the coastal ride leads to Panormos Bay, a pristine, tranquil spot. There are lots of hidden beaches and the Rina sea cave.
 
Naxos Town is within very easy reach of the villa. It is guarded by its Venetian castle and enjoys narrow, winding, cobbled streets, gleaming white architecture, ancient churches, antique shops, buzzy bars and wonderful restaurants. Marko Sanoudo II, the Venetian emperor invaded and conquered Naxos in 1207 and built the castle. It was the seat of power for the Cyclades islands for three hundred years. During the summer months, music festivals are held in the setting of the Kastro and painters and sculptors also hold exhibitions in the castle. Naxos’ Archaeological Museum is housed in the old Jesuit School of Commerce with a wonderful collection of old Cycladic art, white marble monuments and local ceramics. The great writer Nikos Kazantzakis attended the school and it is where he wrote ‘Zorba the Greek’. The car-free old town is known as Kastro, located within the castle’s old Venetian walls and enjoying steep narrow lanes decorated with tumbling colourful bougainvillaea, numerous churches and elegant Venetian mansions. The lanes from Kastro lead downhill to Bourgos which is where the Greeks lived during the years of Venetian occupation. The new town is situated next to the main port and with many of the town’s restaurants, bars and cafes. As soon as you enter the port of Naxos, you notice the ancient monument of Portara which means ‘Big door’ in Greek. The Portara is a centuries-old marble doorway built in 522BC as the entrance gateway to the unfinished Roman Temple dedicated to Apollo. It stands on a small islet and is an incredible Instagram worthy spot at sunset when the sky turns to orange and gold.
 
Naxos enjoys a fabulous reputation for its delicious cuisine. You will fall in love with the island’s local delicacies. The island is very fertile and almost self-sufficient. You will enjoy delicious vegetables, cheeses, meats, fish and alcoholic drinks. Must-try dishes include pig rosto, pork stuffed with garlic and braised in wine, pork fricassee flavoured with the leaves of sea lavender and tasty cheeses including Graviera of Naxos, Arseniko and Xynotyro. The local dishes can be divided into three groups, the fish and seafood dishes of the coastal areas, the vegetable and beef dishes popular on the plains and usually made with homemade butter and the goat and lamb delicacies of the mountains, always cooked with plenty of local olive oil. There are excellent vineyards in the north of the island. The island’s Kitron is wonderful, made from the fruit and leaves of the citron tree. Visitors can enjoy cooking workshops like Vioma and visit and tour wineries such as the Saint Anna winery in the small village of Kato Potamia.
 
You mustn’t forget to explore the mountains and valleys of this lush island and the charming villages sprinkled around including Tripodes, Filoti, Halki and Apeiranthos. The picturesque village of Halki is utterly charming with neoclassical architecture, tiny alleys, bougainvillaea, jasmine trees and charming shops. The marble village of Apiranthos should not be missed too. It is brilliantly well-preserved and is the highest village of the Cyclades. It is famous for its tavernas that serve delicious local meat dishes. Not to be forgotten are the island’s major sites of the Demeter Temple. Kouros of Melanes, Kouros of Apollonas, Panagia Drossiani Church, the Monastery of Fotodotis and Kalamitsia Monastery. The oldest of the island’s churches is Panayia Vlacherniotissa which boasts a beautiful carved alter screen. Panayia Myrtidiotissa stands on a tiny islet in the port of Naxos and Theologaki is a tiny chapel in a cave.
 
You can also hop on large luxurious catamarans to find the island’s secluded and hidden beaches or sail to some of the small Cyclades. The boat trip to the island of Koufonisia takes just under two hours, a lovely experience with wonderful fresh fish lunches in the tavernas and secluded naturist beaches if that is your thing.

Villa Arie is a wonderful villa for large families. There is probably even space for two families or a multi-generational family. The terrace is fabulous with a swimming pool and excellent entertainment spaces. The garden is lovely too.
 
The friendly island of Naxos offers much entertainment for families. It enjoys a wonderful coastline brimming with exceptional, safe, sandy beaches together with crystal clear turquoise water. Naxos also offers ancient monuments, churches, castles and a busy cultural and activities calendar. Agios Prokopios, one of the closest beaches to the villa, is one of the most popular beaches on the island. Sand castle building, watersports, swimming and beach games are perfect for little ones. Agios Prokopios enjoys Blue Flag status, one and a half kilometres of gorgeous sand and protection from the island’s winds. There are sun loungers and umbrellas as well as an unorganised section. There are plenty of lively beach bars and water sports facilities. Older kids can take windsurfing or kitesurfing lessons with trained professionals. The tiny chapel dedicated to Saint Prokopios stands on the western side of the beach. Close by, you will find Agios Anna, a quieter version of Agios Prokopios and pink-coloured salt lakes with many birds and other wildlife. Agios St George is on the edge of Naxos Town with its warm shallow water. Plaka Beach is better suited to thrill-seeking aqua adventurers with its strong winds.
 
The popular Aqua Fun Water Park is wonderful for an afternoon’s entertainment. It is located in Stelida, not far from the villa, and offers a wonderful array of slides and other entertainment. There are swimming lessons for young children. There are adult waterslides, children’s slides, kamikaze, free fall, open and octopus waterslides, various pools and a cafe.
 
Children enjoy learning about the myths and legends behind the island’s many archaeological sites such as the Temple of Apollo, the Temple of Demeter and the ‘Gulliver-like’ Kouroi. The Kouros of Apollonas also called the Colossus of Dionysus, is a 10.7m tall unfinished statue made with light grey Naxian marble, weighing around eighty tonnes. The Portara at the entrance to the harbour was intended to be the doorway of a massive temple commissioned by the island’s ruler Lygdamis over 2500 years ago but the unpopular leader was overthrown and his project abandoned.  
 
Children also enjoy visiting some of the other charming mountain villages. Damalas is popular with its traditional industries including pottery. You can watch the potters with their mastery of the craft. At the end of the village, you will find the original olive press. Chalki feels like a miniature Naxos Town. At Vallindra you can see how the delicious Kitron is made. It is possible to go horseback riding or enjoy mountain bike trails instead of just driving.
