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 .
Ioannis es una persona entrañable, afable y muy próxima. Nos hizo sentir como en casa nada más llegar. Además nos aconsejó los mejores lugares, tabernas y playas de la isla, nos regaló continuamente verduras de su huerto, aceites, bebidas, desayuno típico... Es un encanto de persona.
La casa es muy acogedora y peculiar, de acuerdo con lo que se nos prometía, un "mitato" tradicional y genuino del país, que aprendimos a conocer bien gracias a él.
El entorno es muy tranquilo, bucólico, muy cercano al mar y con noches bellamente estrelladas.
We loved staying in Ioannis Mitato, it feels like home. Quiet and pleasent location, wonderful view. The home has everything you need, And Ioannis gave us a lot of tips about Naxos island. Communications with him were easy. We reccomend for everyone who desire a relaxing holiday between countryside and Sea! My wife call The home "the fairy 's house"!
It was a wonderful and unforgettable experience in Ioannis Mitato. We spent 5 nights in this beautiful and special equipped little house. The Mitato is located in a quiet and nice place and from the veranda you have a great ocean view. Ioannis has a great garden with fresh vegetables and salads which we could take. The communication with Ioannis was great and he gave us some good recommendations for local restaurants and beautiful places in Naxos. He is a warm and friendly person and a great host. We recommend Ioannis place to everyone who loves the nature and wants to stay in a calm and amazing place. Thank you Ioannis for your hospitality. We had a fantastic time in Naxos.
We loved our experience in Ioannis' Mitato. Communication was fantastic and he helped to recommend a car hire company. The instructions to the Mitato were spot on, we found it with no trouble at all. There is a mini market in Gallini which is great for the first nights stay. The Mitato is full equipped with everything you need and has so much charm. I can honestly say that the Mitato is one of a kind. The area surrounding it is peaceful and the hammock is amazingly comfortable. The home made wine straight from the barrel is also a wonderful surprise. Thanks Ioannis for putting your Mitato on airbnb!
If you want the true essence of Greece, this is it. Tranquility, beauty, a private beach, and a home in the most traditional of Greek styles. But best of all, your host, a man of many talents, and friendly and generous beyond words. A true Greek.
We love Joanni!

The Mitato was wonderful! A beautiful little stone house built into the hillside. Ioannis was an excellent host. He wrote out two pages of recommendations and basically gave us a solid itinerary for our 3 days on Naxos.
Naxos is beautiful, and the location of the house was great, a short drive to Naxos town and the beaches on the southwest of the island as well as the villages on the interior.
Ioannis provided several things to combat the mosquitos (mosquito net, bug spray, aroma repellent), but my wife and I did get a few mosquito bites. Ioannis was kind enough to make us a special herb and oil solution to ease the itching, and it worked great!
Would definitely stay here again. :)
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 !
About the Host, Ioannis
I have two children now and life is busier than ever. 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.
