Steps to beach where the only footprints are your own. I live on one of the top US beaches and was in heaven on the Plaka beach. This 9 room hotel is located at the south end of the Plaka which makes it out of the crowded areas. However, still walking distance to restaurants, mini market and bus stop. Elena...

Our breakfast...

Being Greek and having seen my worth of horrid, tasteless and overpriced rooms and studios in islands I can attest that Valena Mare is a bright exception to this sad reality. Not only is the place beautiful, clean, and well looked-after, but the studios are super-reasonably priced. The location is a bit off-the-grid and you do need some means of...

We stayed at the Valena Mare in June. The apartment, the garden, the pool, the entire estate was new, well designed, very clean and well maintained. The owners were lovely people, always prone to help and serve. The Valena Mare consists of 9 roomy appartments. Three of them are very adequate for a family of 4. I would recommend it...

We spent 11 nights at Valena Mare, May 24 till June 4th 2014. We found the accommodation through Trip Advisor. We had visited The Cyclades before, spending two or three nights here and there, but this time we were looking to spend a longer time exploring just one Island, NAXOS......a destination which had been recommended to us by a U.K....

We loved staying at Valena Mare, and would do so again. We loved the location, the warm welcome and clean room with an amazing view from the balcony, the beach is just a stones throw away. Would highly recommend to friends and family.

In general, our experience at Valena Mare was very nice. The rooms are big and nicely decorated, the balconies are spacious, the beach nearby is magnifiscent. One of my favorite parts was the garden. Very well adapted to the natural environment with plants that have low water demand. It shows that the owners are environmentally aware. By the way, the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Valena Mare is a new complex with deluxe studios & apartments on the largest island of the Cyclades, Naxos. Naxos has a long history and splendid mythological past, and is the greenest island of the Cyclades. It is the most popular tourist destination not because of its proximity to Athens, but for many natural beauties, traditional villages, archaeological sites, Byzantine churches, monasteries and unique sandy beaches. Our studios are just 200m from the sea, on the sandy beach of Plaka with the incredible crystal waters. Our location is only 8 km from Chora, the capital town and main port of Naxos, and 6 km from the airport. ... more   less
