History of Faros Villa in Naxos Island, Aliko Beach, Greece

About us

Our family originally coming from "Filoti", which is the biggest village of the island at the bottom of mountain Zeus. We stood very lucky back in 1987 when "Elias" the head of our family, bought this land in this blessed area. The beauty of nature, the pristine ground and the crystal clear waters of Alyko were ideal even without a special plan. The next year the house was built and run without public electricity. (with a small generator)

Five years later, 2 of the 4 boys of the family now fully grown up, decided to have the place to be grown up too, as it was necessary for our guests also. So was done in 1992 and we started our restaurant, Faros tou Alykou (the lighthouse of Alyko). Since that time mama Eirini is cooking homemade food for Faros guests and Naxian people as well.

The rooms and the restaurant made the place more comfortable and easier to stay here for longer, but still something was missing to make it complete…so in 1999, we decide to create the swimming pool with a bar. This was a great expense for that time but definitely worth it!

Since those days, step by step we are improving our services and knowledge, to make your stay with us, a unique and memorable experience!
