Cycladic Oath is a hauntingly beautiful ode to its Naxian heritage. It is a white stucco and natural stone serene escape that promises a tranquil stay for all whose grace it. This timeless property is a four bedroom, repose that is ideal for those who appreciate the Cycladic air and cherish the privacy of high mountain living. The stellar panoramic view is that of the jewel of Naxos; known as Orkos beach and of the serene cascading hills that line the Naxian horizon. The views from some of the rooms capture the varying azure blue ripples of the Aegean waters which are a bewitching spectacle that will captivate your heart and soothe your soul. The property is rich in classic comfortable island living and is spread over three floors that are designed with spacious entertaining area and a state of the art kitchen for gourmet meal preparation for entertaining your family and friends.
Cycladic Oath is a remarkable property that was built with the finest natural materials and exquisite local stone from the homonymous region. Every feature in the retreat is accentuated in the details of the furnishing and in the craftsmanship of the architectural finishes of the house. The property is truly a testimonial to Naxos mythological heritage. Naxos is the island where Zeus was raised according to the legends of old and one can almost imagine his presence at Cycladic oath, as we are sure it would be his choice of retreat as it is truly stately and majestic.
Naxos, this little city island with endless stretches of sandy beaches, fertile valleys and mountain villages offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience to its visitors. Located in the centre of the Cycladic islands, Naxos is easy to get to from various points, by air and by sea, year round.The largest and loftiest (at 999m/3,247ft elevation) of the Cyclades archipelago, rocky Náxos is one of the few Greek islands that could actually feed itself, its goods and largely native produce (flocks of sheep and goats are everywhere) stand out, as does its laid-back vibe.
Its vast beaches and marble antiquities as well as the unique local flavors will make your heart skip a beat. Imagine an enormous Kouros dating back to 570 BC in the Flerio area, a 5.5-meter grayish statue lying beneath the trees in eternal slumber. Visit Portara, the entrance to the Temple of Apollo, a 6th century BC unfinished construction on the islet of Palatia at the port’s entry, which is the island’s other most distinctive archaeological site that survives today. The Temple of Apollo may have remained incomplete but its Portara entrance still stands today and has become a trademark of the island.
This serene and unadulterated location is blessed with rich agricultural activity. Since ancient time, Naxos has been the center of grape vine and wine production, since is was an important meeting ground for the worship of god Dionysus. To this day grape cultivation is one of the fundamental occupations of the Naxians. Another famous local drink is the liqueur named Kitro, which is made by distilling the fragrant leaves of the Kiron Tree according to old family recipes.
The island features beaches that are among the most beautiful in Greece, a few minutes drive from villages where they still wear traditional dress, weave on old looms and live off the fruit of the land. Agia Anna is one of the island’s most cosmopolitan beaches. Plaka beach and Mikri Vigla, are also very well known spots and a major draw for water sport enthusiasts. Windless Panormos offers a terrific view of the neighboring Koufonissia islands, from a point reached by a track starting at the beach. Another option is Psili Ammos, located in front of a cedar forest while serene Lionas ensures total relaxation on the beach’s white-colored pebbles.
Naxos draws sophisticated families from all around Europe and it is definitely a child-focused island. It’s a place to test the waters, to linger on the sand, have a go at windsurfing, marvel over the mysteries of ancient ruins.
