ELaiolithos has a beauty all of its own and the right philosophy that looks to be a home away from home for the discerning guest. The design concept of the hotel was inspired by a few emblematic items of the local culture: the old millstone from Moni village, the Naxian marble, the olive groves and the Drimalia Byzantine Mystras.

It is the vision of the talented owner, Helen Marakis, who is both a Naxos native and a successful entrepreneur who studied and lived in New York for 30 years. Her inspiration for this concept came from her love about the rich mountainous region, its soil purity and abundance, the globally famous Naxian gastronomy, the property’s location and surroundings which immediately gives you the feeling of a “destination of its own”and her own healthy eating habits that start with choosing delicious healthy foods.
