ELaiolithos Luxury Retreat has a unique philosophy to offer best prepared breakfast and a unique dining experience.
Using products from the island and the mountainous local villages, it gives a one-of-a-kind value to the local ingredients where travelers will experience the unspoiled Greek village tastes. Traditional Naxian cuisine with an emphasis on healthy, local, and seasonal ingredients, farm-to-table, are the owner’s moto, and Helen follows that in order to offer great gastronomic tastes to her guests.
Her creativity and passion for food are always on the menu. She proudly states “I know the hen who laid the eggs and I offer amazing dishes for an authentic food experience”.
ELaiolithos’ guests will have the opportunity to enjoy breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner but also various snacks, signature drinks and local delicacies found no where else on the island.
Last but not least, amazing local cheeses are available from Helen’s brother whose name is associated with quality and uniqueness – his goats and lambs are only fed grass and fruits from the Naxian land.
Great location offers countless possibilities!
Since ELaiolithos is located in the center of the island and at an altitude of 500 meters, it gives the opportunity to travelers to explore the inner island at ease, have long walks to the villages and natural olive groves; and try their trekking endurance towards the Zeus mountain, the highest pick in Cyclades islands.

ELaiolithos is the first hotel on Naxos to be awarded with the Gold Level by the Greek hiking network known as “Hikers Friendly Hotels”. Amazing hiking paths that start just outside the doorstep of the retreat will lead guests to explore the so many attractions of the area, including the villages, archaeological sites that are thousands of years old, waterfalls, valleys, churches and many more that are ready to be explored. On another note, the nearby village of Moni has a strong weaving tradition and the women’s weaving workshop is highly recommended for visitors who want to encourage this rare art.
Go Green is more than a concept, it is a philosophy Helen implements to every detail of her property. Helen always mentions that the property offers luxury accommodation and underlines the importance of ecology and ethical living. Bioclimatic building materials, Greek and Cycladic inspired design, eco-friendly cleaning agents, respect for the surrounding environment, local building materials (including stone and marble from the island itself), water-saving mechanisms, and even the age-old, Greek eco-innovation of pressed cement mortar are all part of the property’s eco philosophy. ELaiolithos supports local artists and that is why travelers can view several unique art pieces that give a one-of-a-kind tone to the retreat.
