Things to do

Archaeological Museum of Mykonos:

The Archaeological Museum of Mykonos was started in 1905 to house the findings of an archaeological dig on the island of Rheneia. The Putrefaction Pit that was excavated dates back to 425 BC. This museum is one of the oldest in all of Greece, and was designed by Alexandros Lykakis.

Petros the Pelican:

Petros the Pelican is a unique fixture on the waterfront of Mykonos. He is the official mascot of the island. After a storm in 1954, he became a permanent resident of the island. It is a well-known "secret" that the current 'Petros' is actually a successor to the original Petros.

Little Venice:

Explore Little Venice, a waterfront neighbourhood in the town of Mykonos (or Chora). This area is full of small restaurants and bars, and provides a stunning view of the water. Little Venice is considered one of the island's most romantic locations.

Delos:

The island of Delos is an important historical site in Greece. Archaeological research on the island has led to some of the most fascinating finds, and has contributed to the collections of the Archaeological Musem of Delos and the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.

Kato Myli:

The 16 windmills at Kato Myli point to an early industrial past on the island of Mykonos. These windmills used to provide islanders with the power to grind grain in the 16th century. Additionally, the view from the windmills is spectacular. The town of Chora and the harbour further out are visible from here.

Weather on Mykonos

Weather on Mykonos is mostly sunny. Rainy weather is present in February and March only, and two wind cells influence the island greatly. The first is called Sirocco, present in winter. This brings sand and warmth from the deserts along the southern Mediterranean. The second is called the Meltemi, and it cools down hot summer days in July and August.

Travel to Mykonos

Mykonos Island International Airport (JMK) is located 2.5 miles outside of the town of Chora. Flights arrive and depart daily to and from Athens Airport (ATH) and other European airports. Car-carrying and passenger ferries arrive and depart daily to most islands, and are more frequent during the highest tourist season. Ferries land in the port town of Tourlos, and the Ormou Agiou Ioanni Agiou Stefanou Road runs north-bound along the west coast of the island, to the town of Mikonos.

The villa was beautiful (pics don't do it justice!) and the views are amazing. It was clean, and spacious, and just a beautiful relaxing location. Evi was also a lovely and helpful host, meeting us at the airport and made some great recommendations of places to eat and things to see in Mykonos. Had a lovely time, would definitely go back and stay here again.

Easily accommodate 8 people comfortably. A few items to note. The amenities show it has "pantry items".We and to buy salt, pepper, sugar, oil, vinegar etc. There were no pantry items and the owner said that was an error. Also advertised was a welcome hamper with the "basics" - this consisted of olives, wine, a bottle of water and bread. A nice welcome gift but not "the basics". We could of used a sharp kitchen knife (only bread knives to cut everything with), and another pot otherwise the kitchen is fully stocked. All bedrooms were very clean and lots of towels/linen that was changed every two days. One issue was the back bedroom against the hill had a great deal of "potato bugs/pill bugs" every night to pick up, including the sheets. The rest of the villa didn't have these pests. The villas are secluded from one another so you have a lot of privacy. A very nice pool that is maintained daily. The wooden loungers could of used chair pads. A care is a must of you want to see the rest of the island or don't like to walk a lot. The small market that carries a few basic groceries is about a 20 minute hilly walk. The closest beach is about 25 minute walk. Mykonos town is about 45-60 minute walk. The staff there were excellent and offered to assist where they could. We even got a ride to the big grocery store to pick up all of our items we needed for the week. Minus the few issues above, I would recommend this place for anyone wanting privacy, a lot of space and a stunning view. Also note, the pictures on the website are exactly what you see in person and the wifi was excellent.

The villa was in a really good condition. There was cleaning provided by them, so made our life easier. We needed a concierge service and restaurant suggestions and the owner was able to assisst as with all of it. They are always easy to reach, in case you need something. The area is far from the attractions so its very quite and easy to find peace. I would highly recommend it.
