Stella Apartments Naxos Plaka Beach
The Stella Apartments have a beautifully landscaped garden with palm trees and a great pool with a view of the sea and the mountains! There is also a children's pool and playground.
The apartments are decorated in a simple, Greek style and have a small bathroom and a kitchenette. The view from our terrace is simply fantastic, including the sound of the sea and sunsets.
Despite the tourist infrastructure, it is not overcrowded in the off-season and we enjoy the great connection to the various beaches, supermarkets and taverns. Three of my favorite spots on Naxos are within walking distance of the property: the Paradiso Tavern right on the sand that Petrino Restaurant and two of mine Favorite beaches on Naxos.
Small disadvantage: the audience is a bit older, at least in the off-season, and in front of the facility there is a sandy track that is frequented by buses and cars.
Still a really nice tip for the off-season. In the end we found the mixture of good infrastructure (restaurants, cafes, beaches, supermarkets, car rental etc.) and the proximity to the city, the mountain villages and the lonely beaches south of Naxos Plaka Beach just perfect!
For 9 nights from the 16.9. until the 25.9. we paid about 450 €
