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.

                                      Fantastic villa, great service!

                                      Our experience started when we first contacted Sofianos, who always replied quickly and was extremely helpful. Arriving at the villas, we were mesmerized by the view and the quality of the property. The house manager Padelis and his wife Elena were also a part of our experience, being very helpful and friendly at all times. We definitely recommend Villa Thelgos and hope to return in the near future! :-) Thanks again for everything! Mariana and friends

                                      A gorgeous villa surrounded by greenery, which is rare in most greek islands. Very tasteful decorations and also very clean and cozy on the inside. Top notch work on behalf of the hosts, everything was arranged smoothly and efficiently from the moment of our arrival to our departure. The overall experience was excellent.

                                      We had an absolutely fantastic holiday staying at this villa. It is modern, well equipped and very clean. The whole family was extremely comfortable with enough space to relax both indoors and outdoors. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the facilities are impressive! The pool is large and the views from the villa are spectacular. Set on a hill you can enjoy the privacy and quietness, but it is also easy to get into town and experience all that the island has to offer! Both the property manager and owner were extremely helpful and knowledgeable, with great recommendations of restaurants that kept everyone happy! This was by far one of the best holidays we have enjoyed and the villa exceeded all our expectations. I have recommended this place to all my friends and family and we will definitely be going back again!
