Galini & Eggares Villages

In the fertile valley

Galini and Eggares are two quiet villages close to Naxos Town (5Km & 7Km respectively) located at the fertile Eggares Valley.

Galini is a farming village on Naxos built in amphitheatric fashion on the western side of the Eggares valley, with pretty houses and well-tended flower gardens. It overlooks the olive groves, orchards and vineyards in the valley which famous writer Nikos Kazantzakis described as a paradise.

Eggares is a small farming village in the midst of a fertile plain, not very “touched” by tourism.

Both make a choice for walks in the nature and an easy escape from Naxos Town.

Amenities include taverns, cafe, mini market, accommodation.
