Featuring free WiFi, Naxos Olive & Home offers accommodation in Engares. Naxos City is 6.8 km away. The accommodation is air conditioned and is fitted with a flat-screen TV. Comfortable beds, very good breakfast with local produce, accommodating and friendly hosts, very efficient internet coverage. Excellent location in a nice village, not far from Naxos town. The hosts gave us readily plenty of info/advice on places to visit and things to do. They even booked themselves a restaurant for us for our arrival night when I asked for options. A very pleasant stay.
Engares has a mini market shop and the museum of olive oil is worth a visit. We also enjoyed visiting the nearby village of Galini and having lunch at the restaurant there. This is a rural location but only a 20 min drive from Naxos town, which is lovely and unpretentious. So, if you have a family and want space and a good base to explore the island, I definitely recommend this location. We went to the local beach once but on the day we went it was very windy and wavy. We liked the beach at Agios Prokopios, Agios Anna and our favourite was Mikri Vigla, south side, which is sheltered from the wind - the northern side is where the kite surfers are. We also visited and loved the mountain town of Filoti. If you have a chance to spend a few days on another island, go to Naoussa in Paros!
