Located in a tiny village called Damalas, not far from Naxos town, I think this village potter totally relies on the tourist buses and trade for survival. Don't be fooled by the displays on the fences leading into the village, which don't look to good. When you go into his workshop, he will put on a display and has many... More

Located in a village with only a few hundred people, this pottery shop is on the tour bus route and probably needs this to stay alive. Such a happy and welcoming potter. We bought several items and really enjoyed getting them directly from the artist instead at a tourist shop. I'm sure we were as much of a curiosity as... More

Simply amazing art and functionality of all these creations...Great workshop place. JUSTE LOVED TO BE THERE!!!! and especially impressed by the "justice cup" and the pottery which conserves & keeps the wine fresh !! You can buy everything in very good prices. 😊You must go visit the workshop,, its not faraway from the town.

We stopped here after a quick recommendation from our rental car company for a place for pottery. Even though it is hard to miss on your way into Damalas we almost missed it as we expected it to be "in" town! I am so glad that we didn't as it was a highlight of our trip! Damalas itself is just...

We found Limpertas Manolis' shop because we rented a car and drove around interior Naxos for a day. Our hotel (Hotel Grotta) had told us about a potter that sold beautiful works so as we were making our way around the loop they suggested and saw a sign for a pottery shop we thought we'd check it out. We were... More

Well worth the drive to Damalas - which is about a 20 min drive from Naxos Town (Port). Nothing fancy so if you are looking for a white marble showroom, with fine detailed inlay work, this is not the place for you. However, if you are looking for a place where pottery has been passed from father to son for... More

We dropped in on our way to Halki, and were very warmly greeted and given an impromptu demo and tour. Lovely to see all the handmade items and colours. It's well worth buying from here are there's a significant mark up added by the artist shop in Chora, also good to directly support this family business. Note its in Damalas... More

Our hotel recommended stopping here and it was well worthwhile. They even gave my 9 year old a chance to make his own bowl on the pottery wheel. Learning how the wine cups and whistles work was very interesting. I usually try to bring home a unique bowl or plate from our travels and the one I purchased here will... More

I am skeptical when my host suggest this place as part of the to do list in Naxos. Along with another family from the same hotel, we drove from Hora to Damalas. Manolis ( not very fluent in English ) explained the tradition way of making pottery in Naxos with a few types of pottery ( i think its called... More
