Experiences

Watersports
Pyrgaki Beach is a great place to engage in watersports thanks to the strong summer wind known as meltemi. Throughout the day, the average wind speed can range from 5-7 beaufort, making the conditions at Pyrgaki beach ideal for all levels (beginner to advanced) in the slalom/speed, wave, freestyle and free-ride categories.

Those who ride the wave, may be familiar with Mikri Vigla, the internationally-recognized meeting spot for kitesurf enthusiasts, but Pyrgaki in Naxos, has its own fan base and kitesurfing school.

Bike Breathtaking Coastal Trails
Biking enthusiasts, two fairly easy paths for touring and mountain bikes are:

Pyrgaki to Alykos Beach

  • From Pyrgaki follow the dirt road to Alykos beach
  • Turn left on the asphalt road (careful, there might be some traffic) until you come to the remnants of an old hotel located on the edge of Kouroupia cape
  • To return, take the same asphalt path north

Pyrgaki to Agiassos

  • From Pyrgaki head east along the coast towards Agiassos
  • Enjoy the view to the beach and view of the islands of the Small Cyclades in the distance
  • To return, follow the same road back to Pyrgaki
A Ramblers Paradise
With Sun and Moon Villas as your home base, in Pyrgaki, about 30 minutes from the centre of Naxos, guests can explore the southwest coast of the island and its breathtaking beaches. Ramblers and hikers are sure to enjoy the chance for long walks in the countryside or along the long stretch of sandy beach. Up for some exploration? Inquire about the natural paths that lead to some of the area’s amazing beaches.

Gastronomy
Naxos, one of the Cyclades’ most fertile islands, apparent by its rich agricultural landscape, offers visitors to the island a variety of delicious traditional and gourmet dishes using local products and seasonal ingredients.

Perfect for lunch, or as an appetizer, is the ever-popular summer favorite Greek Salad that in Naxos is often topped with the local soft cheese, xinomitzithra. The tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, cucumbers and melons are picked fresh from the owner’s own garden as are the herbs such as thyme, sage, oregano, basil, mint, rosemary, and spearmint. Meat dishes and vegetarian options are also available thanks to the menu’s variety of Greek dishes. In addition, we offer a children’s menu.

Cool drinks and cocktails may be enjoyed at our Sun and Moon Pool Bar that serves cocktails, selection of Greek wines, beers and coffees until midnight.

The experience of dining at Sun and Moon Villas surrounded by shrubs of lavender, thyme and strawberries, overlooking the meadow and the sea adds to the uniqueness of a holiday stay at Sun and Moon Villas.

Sun and Moon Villas: ideal for those seeking to experience a tasty holiday in a unique setting.

Greek Summer at Sun and Moon Villas
There is nothing like a summer holiday spent on a Greek island complete with sun-filled days at the beach: swimming in crystal clear blue waters, relaxing under the umbrella, drinking an iced beverage and clearing the mind.

There is nothing like a summer holiday spent on Naxos, exploring the largest island of the Cyclades: visiting its many beaches, villages, archaeological sites, historic cultural venues, museums and unique shops!

And after a long day of discovery and adventure, there is nothing like coming home… to Sun and Moon Villas, your exclusive home away from home when spending your summer holiday on Naxos. This is the time to cool off from the hot sun, to take a siesta, to indulge in the sounds of the cicadas…

There is nothing like a summer afternoon-early evening on a Greek island. This is the time of “kalispera,” the greeting when we bid welcome to the afternoon and the time before night falls.

Kalispera! Time to enjoy a light snack before getting ready for a night on the town. How about a cup of coffee or tea, with a delightful spoon sweet made from local fruit preserves? Or an aperitif, or a glass of wine accompanied by a selection of local cheeses or delicious summer fruit.

There is nothing like Greek summer … on Naxos … in Pyrgaki … at Sun and Moon Villas, where the sun and the moon welcome you home on your holiday vacation.
