Traditional Cookery Class in Kaloxylos | A Private half-day Family Culinary Experience

    With scenery straight from a fairytale, courtyards exploding with flowers, century-old olive trees, classical Greek architecture, an impressive church, and the biggest folklore museum in the Cyclades, it’s safe to say Kaloxylos is a hidden treasure trove of Naxos. Kaloxylos’s 30 inhabitants will welcome you and be happy to share their precious stories about their way of life.

    You and your family are invited to an intimate cookery class in the family home of our culinary expert. Prepare yourselves for an incredible feast! Following a refreshing welcome drink, you will learn the ways of the Naxian, and cook a hearty traditional meal in this 3-4 hour hands-on class. 

    You’ll then enjoy the fruits of your labor: a classic Naxian meal, the recipe of which has been inherited from generations before. Good health and hospitality are proud pillars of Greek culture, and alongside your new cooking skills, you’ll be given a masterclass in the importance of these virtues.

    After your culinary experience, you and the family are welcome to stroll around this postcard-worthy village, soaking in the sights in the afternoon sun. Perhaps you fancy visiting the Folklore Museum (no extra fee) or just imbibe the quaint architecture and lush courtyards. 

    Hopefully, you’ve walked up an appetite, as dinner includes such delights as cheese tasting, fresh salad, lavish desserts, alcoholic drinks and cold refreshments. The perfect end to a fun filled day exploring Kaloxylos village!

    • Hi!

      We will be in Naxos the first week of July, but it would probably just be 2 adults.

      Also – I have been trying to find relatives of someone who used to live in Kaloxylos. I know it’s a small village so maybe you could help. His name was Stamatios Mavroyiannopoulos.

      Thank you with help for both.

      Take care!

        Thank you.
