About This Listing
"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 .
Our stay at the Mitato of Ioannis was perfect. Just feeling in an other time... Actually like if the time had stopped in the midle of amazing landscapes, wild, authentic, but close to everything with a car. Ioannis is a very welcoming and helpfull host, always giving the best advices to discover the Island, and full of "bonnes adresses", for restaurants and others. We really appreciate his locals and own products, following the seasons. Thanks again for everything Ioannis and really hope to stay in touch !
Ioannis mitato house is just fantastic! We spent three days there and discovered a great wild area - from the sea that we've heard at night to the moutains we climbed the day. The evocations of this land are deep and precious specially if you read old greec myths. In few days, you have the feeling to live into the rhythm of the sun.
I recommand this experience for all the people who are looking for a simple but deep experience.
Amazing- what a wonderful host. We had great communication before arriving and he met is at the port when we arrived on the ferry. After a trip to the gas station (rental cars arrive empty) and a mini mart for some food we drove to Mitato. Looks and feels as described.
Over a generous snack, including wine and olives he produced, we talked about our itinerary for the next couple of days. We were given some wonderful villages to visit and suggestions for tabernas. They were exelent suggestions.
The acomidations are a bit more rustic than the city, but the water is hot, the fridge is cold and the stove cooks.
If you have a chance visit Naxos and stay with Ioannis, you will be pleased that you did.
It is great location, where is very peaceful. However we didnot meet the owner, but he has prepared everything upfront that we need in house as well as arranged his friends to pick up us at Naxos airport, he is very thoughtful. We do enjoy our stay there, and the only pity was that it has yet not been high season, some shops were either closed or in decoration during our stay.
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!
About the Host, Ioannis
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.
