Chalki (Chalkio or Halkio), Naxos Island

The lovely village of Chalki is situated in the inland of the island, at a distance of some 16 kilometers southeastern to the town of Naxos (Chora), within the fertile area of Tragaea, overgrown with olive trees and citrus trees. The village counts more than 400 permanent residents, occupied in agriculture and stockbreeding and occasionally in tourism.

Accommodation facilities are available in the village and you are strongly recommended to visit it, as there is a lot of sightseeing. Once there, you will admire the old houses, recalling the days of prosperity. Also, you may visit the old towers of Gratsias (or Barotsis), of Papadakis at Akademi and of Marcopolites at Kerami; it is also worth seeing the church of Panaghia Protothrone, dedicated to Virgin Mary; the church is dated in the 9th century, and the interesting religious Museum has been established beside it. The museum displays interesting ritual relics and utensils as well as icons. The village has several old churches, some of them going back to the Byzantine times. Finally, don’t miss to visit the old distillery of the 19th century, where it was produced the “Citrus of Naxos”, a liquor famous not only all over the island, but also in Athens and entire Greece. Today, you may buy the tasty ouzo they produce here.

As the village is situated almost at the center of the village, you have many alternatives for swimming in shorter or longer distance from the settlement.

Two local religious feasts (“panighyri”) take place in the village, on the feast in honor of Holy Trinity, taking place at the nearby settlement of Kaloxylo, and on the 15th of August in honor of the Assumption of Virgin Mary.

For health problems, there is a local Medical Center at the village; in any other case, you should address to the corresponding services of the town of Naxos, 16 kilometers far away to the Northwest.

Access to the village is possible by public bus and taxi, as well as by rented or private car and motorbikes.
