enosis in agia anna

Has anybody stayed at these apartments? I am looking for beachfront accomodation sea views and a bit of luxury. Will these fit the bill or are there better?

Not stayed at the Enosis, but a regular to Agia Anna. Unless you are planning to visit in high season (mid-Jul/Aug) there is really no need to book your accommodation ahead. There is a wide selection of rooms/studios in Agia Anna and you can always negotiate a good deal - even for beachfront accommodation.

Hi Nittynora

Its only five minutes or so from the square of Agia Anna to Plaka beach and then if you walk the length of the beach it will take at least half hour, its that long!

Enjoy your trip,

on the floor.

There is a 19 inch rectangular flat screen TV with a great picture. The satellite TV offered has only a couple of English-language channels

which work, and they are all news. There are a few French channels and quite a few German, Italian, and Arabic channels, but no

American ones, unless you want to pay extra. There is a DVD player. You can rent DVDs in Naxos town for 1.50 Euros and the choice is

not bad.

About the beach, you could not really ask for a better one if you like to swim a bit and laze around. There are plenty of long beach chairs

under large parasols. You have to pay for these, usually 2.50 to 3.50 Euros per day. If you get thirsty, you can get water or soft drinks

from one of a few grocery stores just behind the beach. It was sunny every day. The water is warm enough for a skinny guy like me to

snorkel around for half an hour at a time.

The beach is a 40-metre walk from the Enosis main entrance, and you don't have to cross any streets to get there. You pass by a

Souvlaki (1.50 Euros) booth, and a terrace restaurant, and you're there at the beach.

In July the beach was neither crowded nor desterted. We were told that it was rather more crowded in August, and less crowded but

swimmable in the other months from May to October. People were friendly and we felt completely safe. This beach attracts families

with young children or teenagers or both. Most of the people come from other parts of Greece for a holiday. From the languages

spoken around us, we gathered that the rest were mostly northern European, Scandinavian and German for example, with a few

English-speaking Canadians, Americans, and British. Most Greek people under 40 speak English well enough so that tourists like us did

not have to learn any Greek except for the words of courtesy.

About eating, one can stay at the Enosis without having to dine out in restaurants, since there is a grocery store across the street with

reasonable prices. However, we chose to eat out half the time, for about 10 Euros per person per evening.

There are a couple of Internet places to check your e-mail about 1 km north of this beach in the small town of Prokopios, which you can

reach by bus, or just by walking 20 minutes. These cost about 5 Euros per hour. There are larger Internet places in Naxos town for 3

Euros per hour. The Enosis has Internet outlets, but we could not use them because we had not thought of bringing our laptop.

Overall, we were delighted by our stay at the Enosis for a week's easy and carefree beach vacation. As far as we could tell, it is the mos

July 2007 --

We thought that the Enosis apartment-hotel was excellent, and we would recommend it to anyone who wants to go to Naxos Island in

Greece.

We're a middle-aged couple with two children aged 13 and 10, from Montreal. We went to see relatives in Athens and then took a week's

beach holiday on Naxos Island.

We chose the Agia Anna (St. Ann's) beach, because of good reviews on the Internet, not far from the main town of Naxos.

We paid 1050 Euros for 7 nights in a one-bedroom apartment in the Enosis. This works out to 130 Euros, or $190 Canadian, per night.

The Enosis is a two-storey building that is basically a small multi-dwelling apartment building with studios and one-bedroom apartments.

It is not like a city hotel. Our apartment was exactly as advertised on the website, which has accurate photos of the rooms. Everything

seemed new, including the furniture -- brass bed, dresser, sofa in a fairly large living-room which also has a dining area and a kitchen with

good dishes and cutlery. The bathroom was spacious, with new fixtures including a nice shower stall enclosed in translucent glass. We

had lots of space to stow away our clothing. There is central air conditioning which also seems new and is almost totally silent.

There is a spacious balcony with a pleasant outdoor table and chairs, and a drying rack for bathing suits.

The apartment has lots of privacy, and we hardly heard anyone else at all, day or night. A cleaning lady came through once in the

morning to change towels, make the bed, and sweep away sand on the floor.

There is a 19 inch rectangular flat screen TV with a great picture. The satellite TV offered has only a couple of English-language channels

which work, and they are all news. There are a few French channels and quite a few German, Italian, and Arabic channels, but no

American ones, unless you want to pay extra. There is a DVD player. You can rent DVDs in Naxos town for 1.50 Euros and the choice is

Overall, we were delighted by our stay at the Enosis for a week's easy and carefree beach vacation. As far as we could tell, it is the most

comfortable, spacious, and private hotel on Hagia Anna beach.

Thank you JimMontreal for your detailed information about Enosis apts in Agia Anna. We had determined from our internet search that they looked the most appealing, but sometimes it's hard to tell what a place is like in real life. Your feedback sealed the deal for us! We will be going there at the end of May/June for our honeymoon! We are so excited, especially during these dreary days of winter up in Seattle, WA, land of the clouds and rain...

Hi Nitty Nora

Me and my partner are staying at Enosis at the end of May/beginning of June. We searcher for ages to find the best place and decided that this was the perfect location, not too far from small villages, tavernas, supermarkets but also far away not to be right in the middle of the main town, and also directly on the beach.

I am so excited, need to get away from London for a while! Hope you enjoy, may see you and your partner there!
