Villages of Naxos: Kaloxilos

Kaloxylos is one of Tragea valley’s most picturesque villages on Naxos, next to Chalki.


Situated in an area lush with olive, plane and oak trees, it is well-known for its pretty houses and especially for the rare flowers in their courtyards.


The verdant hills around the village, dotted with chapels –notably Panagia Damniotissa and Agios Ioannis Theologos- are ideal for walks and trekking.
