THE ISLAND OF WINDS
Known worldwide for its elegant style, wonderful landscapes and amazing beaches, Mykonos invites you to spend your special moments full of action and – why not- adventure. It belongs to the very few parts of the world that have managed to have a name that does not need any further identification and this makes it even more authentic. On the one hand its cobbled streets, its picturesque neighborhoods, its widely photographed windmills, its enchanting sunsets, on the other, its cosmopolitan air and the arrivals of the international jet set, ranks it amongst the “must” summer destinations.
Throughout the island there are two colors that dominate and they are none other than blue and white, two colors that significantly contribute to the calming and relaxation of the visitor. The vibrant nightlife of the island with its fantastic restaurant scene, elegant bars and nightclubs, various stores and boutique fashion houses deserve a whole chapter of their own. Our concierge can manage your trip to any of these popular destinations.
Just a short distance away from Mykonos, Delos is a unique archaeological site that deserves a visit. During its golden years, it was one of the largest religious and commercial centers of Hellenism. Today it is host to some of Greece’s most important ancient ruins, such as the Sanctuary with the Temple of Delians and the famous marble Terrace of the Lions which were the sanctuary guards. In the Museum one can find one of the most important archaeological collections in the world. Don’t miss the opportunity to make a one-day visit to the island. Our hotel reception will provide you with all the information you need concerning visitation possibilities.
