A note from Helen...

"What Makes ELaiolithos Different? It is a picturesque settlement, an art hotel - museum in a privileged location, situated on one of the most scenic areas of Naxos island, perched on the cliff between Chalkio & Moni. Brilliantly nestled in the heart of Naxos, in the hinterland, with uninterrupted view of mountains, Drimalia valley, & sea, visible from every room & the terrace. The island’s most renowned attractions are within a short distance. Here time meets with history, culture, tradition and mythology. The opportunity to enjoy both the mountains of the island & its wonderful beaches in a short proximity, gives to ELaiolithos a great advantage for someone who seeks a little adventure in this Cycladic island plus the deep blue of the Aegean. You will experience Authentic Naxian local charm, hospitality and regionally inspired décor that awakens the senses with its history, vibrant landscape, culture, & traditional art. Local aroma is spread everywhere ~ every suite has its own Concept! ELaiolithos’ mission is for the visitor to have an Authentic local touching experience & collect moments. This brings out the inner child and reconnects you with the earth, nature, and humanity.

ElaiolithosMy strength: Humor – I see life with humor and freedom. I love everything that happens unconditionally. I am positive - this is the key – because there are many highs and lows along the way. I like human beings, and I love knowing and learning all about them. I love to meet extraordinary people who live amazing lives from all over the world. One thing I love about my job is the fact that I love people. My belief is that we all have gifts-talents to share with the world and part of my job is to help you get them out there by giving you incentives with my art and with the tranquility and serenity you experience while staying in ELaiolithos. I have fun discovering the similarities and differences among people of different belief systems and cultures. My discoveries have lead me to believe that everyone is basically the same with a little spice thrown in for individuality. I have been able to incorporate parts of other belief systems into my life to enhance it and become less stressed. Living in such a diverse city as New York for most of my life helped me about that a lot. Some of these discoveries are seen through art in ELaiolithos’ decoration. Art means knowledge of oneself."
