Procrastinate, close your eyes, breathe, imagine the feeling of such an experience and do not hesitate to book that flight and stay! Traveling solo is fantastic! Do you have questions like: Will I’ll be safe? What route should I follow? Who will take photos of me? Which mountains should I climb and which path to follow? Which ancient ruins to uncover and hiking routes to explore? Naxos Island is indeed the ultimate Greek island alternative adventure destination.
We are here to subvert the common expectations. We master the art of solo travel by offering you a plethora of possibilities and we’re there to take a photo of you or with you. We’re fostering opportunities for you to see Naxos through a local eye. Authenticity is our core. We know that without authenticity, the culture, character and life of a destination is erased and losses its uniqueness. At ELaiolithos we aspire this value of uniqueness through multiple actions. Meeting new people, socializing with locals in different villages, creating beautiful and genuine friendships, understanding the way they interact with each other, learning from what it means to live inside of another culture and to adapting into it, having fun with them, eating and drinking in the same places as they do, being treated to a home meal or being taken to a favorite local hangout, mingling with their families, feeling this inspiring reality that never leaves the destination. Most importantly, the human connections you will make here are pure bliss, as you will become part of the culture.

Enjoy cooking classes, guided hikes, day trips, visits to organic farmland, cycling, hiking and walking to get around the verdant olive grove hills and villages surrounding the retreat. Enjoy endless mountain vistas and appreciate nature from your own grand porch. This is an unbeatable picturesque setting with the serene melody of the crickets and goat bells.

Be ready for surprises as the allure and beauty of this unspoiled spot of the world unfolds for you and boosts your happiness threshold.
Eat with intention seasonally and sustainably: Eating seasonally in the mountains of Naxos lowers your carbon footprint and supports our small-scale local producers. We ensure your access to good, clean, rustic, regional, farm-to-table and traditional meals. This means high-quality ingredients, sustainable and green agricultural practices, and accessible prices. Here we offer you the opportunity to engage with food in a deeper way and educating yourself about the mountainous Naxian cultivation, production food methods, sustainable and organizing farming, culture and nutritional value of your meals. We gather, prepare and eat fresh home-cooked meals with the intention of learning through local interaction in a mutually beneficial way which brings us together. By understanding people’s differences, we can understand more of our own. Here the words Local, Seasonal and Sustainable are not just culinary buzzwords but the main ingredients in everything we do. At ELaiolithos, creativity and a passion for food are always on the menu. Our crew, field and farm producers are all locals which clearly support sustainability and create the best content.
