"Mitato" is the local Naxos word used for the small house in the country-side. The house is made of stone and is a trip back to time. All the design and furniture are original from the Aegean sea country-side style.
"Mitato" is the local Naxos word used for the small house in the country-side. The house is made of stone and is a trip back to time. All the design and furniture are original from the Aegean sea country-side style. It is a single space room, the bathroom is outdoors, just next to the house.
It is located in the north-west side of Naxos Island, just 150 meters from the coast with great view to the sea. There is parking space and a big yard. Guests can use the barbecue and the wood-oven.
In front of the house there is a vineyard and a garden where we organically cultivate all kind of vegetables and fruits. Guests have free access to the garden can pick up the vegetables and the fruits themselves.
"Mitato" is ideal for couples with a baby or a young child since they share the same room for sleep. The house and the location is ideal for resting and relaxing.

Interaction with Guests
Our house is actually next to the "mitato", we will share the north side yard, the vegetables garden and the view to the sea!!
"Mitato" is located in the country side so actually there is no neighbourhood! The closest house is at 150 meters distance. Tranquillity is the key word of the "neighbourhood"...
The public transport in Naxos is very bad not only for our location but for the whole island. All visitors of Naxos rent a car or a scooter in order to move around the island, visit monuments, discover the beaches etc.
"Mitato" is on the north west coast of the island on the way to Apollon, 14km from the port and 15km from the airport .
If you want a traditional experience this is the place to stay. Stone house with hot ate to cook your evening meal and separate outside bathroom. It was a true back to basics rustic experience. We hired a car, we highly recommend for you to get around!
During our first visit to Naxos we stayed at the Mitato. An excellent choice! Not only because of the authentic experience of staying in a traditional house, but also because of the quiet setting of the house where you can hear the sea and have a stunning view of the sunset. A wonderful place where it feels like coming home after one of the various tours you can make of Naxos. We are grateful to Ioannis that he trusted us his house and garden during our stay, as he had to be in Athens where his wife gave birth to their second child. However, we got the chance to meet up with him upon his return from Athens. Ioannis is an enthusiastic and hospitable host who gave us a lot of information varying from the history of Naxos and the famous Naxos marble to the places to go and the restaurants to eat. Thank you Ioannis, you are the perfect host in the true spirit of Airbnb!
My friend and I stayed at the Mitato for 4 days in early September, and absolutely loved the experience! Our host (Ioannis) wasn't able to meet us on the day of our arrival but sent a friend of his to pick us up from the port to take us back to the place. Throughout our stay Ioannis kept in touch regularly and we got to meet his parents who came to water the garden and brought us loads of fresh food and shared fruit and veg from the garden. We felt like we had the true Dionysos and Ariana experience!
The mitato is beautifully decorated, was super clean and has a memorable view of the sea, with a charming little pebble beach 5 mins down the road. Ioannis is a true example of hospitality and offers an authentic, genuine airbnb experience! Merci encore to Ioannis and his family from Sylvie & Helene!
What a lovely home carefully and lovingly designed not to upset the nature or the surrounding environment. This little paradise was exactly what i needed to escape my hectic life. The place has everything you need, and the garden rich in vegetables and fruits. Sadly Ioannis and his wife were not there during my stay so I have not met them, but Ioannis kept in touch with me before and during my stay. His lovely parents came every two days to water the garden and they were so welcoming and warm, kept bringing me food. Their generosity moved me I felt like they were my relatives. I cannot recommend this lovely place enough. The scenery, the nature, the sound of waves in the night I would give anything to be back there right now instead of being back at my office desk.
Naxos is a lovely island very much worth visiting, people are generous warm and welcoming and the food is so tasty, you will lose your appetite once you leave this island! I will be back for sure, and I hope to meet Ioannis and his family next time.
Ioannis is a very great host and very kind. He did everything so that our stay would be perfect. We are very greatful to him for this.
The "mitato" is so nice! There is a ventilation fan when it's hot, and it's very tipical. The garden is really nice, and the situation is just great : far from the touristic agitation, there is a so beautifull sightseeing on the mountains and the see, and the beach is so close! And with the car it's really easy to go to Chora or everywhere else in Naxos. We also loved the idea of respecting nature..
Well, our stay (9 days) was a complete enlightment!!
I would recommend the "Mitato" to everybody!
Thank you again Ionannis for everything.
We spent a very nice stay in this traditional Mitato.
Ioannis is a great host! Even if he wasn't here every day, he left us some vegetable from the garden and gave us some great tips to discover and taste the authentical Naxos.
The terrace offers an amazing sea view, great for sunsets!!
Muchas gracias por todo Ioannis! Hasta pronto en España ;-)
This is one of the most magical places I've ever stayed. Mitato itself is charming, picturesque, comfortable and private, and the property is in a great location-- close to Hora, so that everything is accessible by car, but far enough outside it for peace and quiet. More than that, Ioannis is a big-hearted host, generous and informative-- my experience of Naxos was totally changed for the better because of his suggestions, and the context he gave everything. The full Naxos experience, exceptional place and host, thank you!
I'm married and have one child. I like the nature and activities like scuba diving and hiking. Sometimes I like to visit a city but not for running to the museums (I have done this in the past too much), instead I like visiting nice cafe's and relaxing in nice city spots.
