ELaiolithos: A newly built luxury accommodation where the Art of Travel & Folk Architecture is combined to serve the human desires. Relax amidst nature, vibrant landscape, art and history, and collect moments.
ELaiolithos is situated in a privileged and unrivaled location in the heart of Naxos where every part of the island is accessible at equal distance and time. It is 17 Km (20 minutes drive) from the capital Chora, 300 meters away from the well-known Panagia Drosiani Byzantine Church, 1 Km just before the picturesque village of Moni, and 3.5 Km from the charming Chalkio village.
ELaiolithos possesses unique aesthetics with pleasant vibes all around. It is an establishment that has its own charm, personality, distinct style and character, all while authentic in its nature.
Emphasis was given not only to the architecture of the building following the traditional Cycladic style, but also to the open area on the terrace to match the surrounding environment and to maintain the sense of invisible luxury, comfort and simplicity. This is all combined with Naxian tradition to offer a unique local experience to the visitor. The stones inside and out create a sense of continuity and connect the retreat with the landscape. Everything has been chosen carefully in order to facilitate the transition from outdoors to indoors in a unified way. Here simply relax and reflect. The peaceful surroundings are even ideal for night-time star gazing.
Let your Naxian holiday adventure begin the moment you come into view of ELaiolithos. The whole retreat is a perfect adaptation to the region’s natural environment, history, topography, and geology, where everything seems to be bound together. All room names are derived from the neighboring mountains that surround the ELaiolithos Retreat, and the interior design matches the mountains’ thematology; all giving a sense of serenity and relaxation to the visitor.
ELaiolithos’ mission is for the visitor to explore the Naxian history, culture, tradition and mythology. This brings out the inner child and reconnects you with the earth, nature, and humanity.
