These are a few of the frequently asked questions. If you have any others, please CONTACT us. No question is silly!

We are NOT travel agents.  The cost of this event is for a unique set of classes and excursions on Naxos.

We ask that anyone who would like to join this event arranges their own accommodation and travel. We will happily provide help and advice for you.

Some of the excursions will include a meal, but we reserve the right to ask for contributions towards drinks (particularly alcoholic drinks).

We have YEARS of experience travelling to Naxos, so please do CONTACT us before booking anything and we will give you our suggestions that should suit your circumstances and needs.
 
We can provide lots of advice and guidance to help you sort your travel. Just CONTACT us.  We're a friendly and helpful bunch!

OPTION 1
Our recommended route of travel is to fly from the UK to ATHENS, and then a short 30 minute flight from ATHENS to NAXOS.

Most major UK airports offer flights to Athens. The trick is in the timing so that you can make the full journey to Naxos in ONE day. This avoids an overnight stay in or around Athens. But then you might want some time in Athens. It's your choice.

From Athens airport, SKY EXPRESS and OLYMPIC AIR offer flights to Naxos. It is a more expensive way to make the trip, but it is a 30 minute flight instead of up to 6 hours on a ferry.

OPTION 2
Once you arrive at Athens airport and you decide that the ferry is for you, you can take a taxi to either PIRAEUS or RAFINA ports. The ferries can take between 3.5 and 6 hours to get to Naxos (depending on whether you get the "jet" boats or not).

There are MANY options here. Please feel free to CONTACT us to discuss what might suit you.

We recommend Aggeliki Diamond Studios in Agia Anna, Naxos.

These apartments are owned by Poppy and her family and they are of a very good standard and are very clean. All rooms have WIFI, a kitchenette, fridge, kettle and hair dryer.

Her apartments are around the pool where most of our classes will take place. Poppy also has her own taverna just a minute away - which instinctively becomes the common gathering place for refreshment and catching up on the day.

You will also be just a few minutes away from some wonderful beaches, bars and restaurants.

Next door to Poppy's Place (as we call it), is a relative who has slightly cheaper apartments called Farma. Again, these are of a very good standard and very close to the beach.

In all cases, please email Poppy aggelikidiamondnaxos@gmail.com to discuss dates and prices.  

We are also happy to help you with any advice before contacting Poppy. Just use our CONTACT form. 
TRAVEL LIGHT
Naxos is a very chilled island. To make your travelling easier and less stressful, we recommend taking cabin bags only on your flights. You really do not need a big wardrobe. Handwashed items dry very quickly as September is a lovely warm month.

TRANSFERS TO YOUR ACCOMMODATION
Naxos airport is tiny. Your accommodation is only 10 minutes from the airport. Where possible, we will pick you up from the airport and take you to your accommodation. Failing that, there will be loads of taxis waiting outside.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING AND WHAT ABOUT CASH?
Agia Anna has a couple of good mini-markets with all the basics you should need.

In the main town (CHORA) there are a couple of very good supermarkets with absolutely everything else you will need.

Cash machines are everywhere and most shops and restaurants accept debit and credit cards.
