  • These two drafts of statues are great and moving. We feel the travzil of the sculptor and expected as he comes back to wake up his works. Superb setting in the bed a river. Very green. Oleanders everywhere.

  • You walk in the garden and oh! there's a kouros! Amazing feel in under the pergola too, with a cold drink next to the fish tank. You also walk a bit further up and there's another kouros! Like a treas...  more »
  • In a beautifully designed space, with trail, lush and cool lies the Kouros of Flerio. Worth to let go for little beaches and visit this village to admire what we inherited from antiquity. Do not pay a ticket to enter the space.

  • If you want to see The Kouros just go to Melanes and not to Apollon. It is nearer, in a beautiful scenery and you can 50th the Kouros. Apollon is far away and the road difficult and the beach not special, especially if there are strong northern winds, when it could be dangerous to swim there.
  • Nice hiking route through green scenery, with many historical attractions on the way
  • Historical and great gardens. Disappointed we drove in there and not so much to see.
  • Amazing work from 6-7 centuries B.C! This unfinished statue is a breathtaking huge stone directly taken from nearby queries. Once a leg has been broken, it has been left here more than 2600 years ago. "People on maps confused between the two Kouros... Melanes Kouros is the male one with trees nearby."
  • This well preserved statue is nestled among olive trees.

Where to stay in Naxos

As with most island destinations, rooms in Naxos tend to cost more the closer you get to the sea. Beach hotels and seaside apartments come at a steep price, but they offer spacious rooms and modern amenities just minutes from the island's finest beaches. Stay in Naxos Town for quick access to the best shopping and dining options, or choose one of the island's smaller settlements if you prefer a quieter base. Village inns provide simply furnished rooms and no frills, but they also charge less than the resort hotels.
