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 accommodation was fantastic, large downstairs living area and open plan kitchen that was fully equipped. Great sized bedrooms including a balcony area for the master bedroom over looking the pool and with a sea view! The outside area was huge and the pool was large an inviting. El Mar Estate is a great place to stay for a group of friends or families who want to be out of the main town in a quiet area. A car is necessary as the prices of taxis are extortionate and I would recommend catching a taxi outside the airport rather than prearranging one via the villa as the price will be cheaper. But what makes this place 5 stars is the owner Marilia!! She was beyond helpful, kind and informative making are staying as comfortable and relaxing as possible. She went out of her way to help us on a daily basis offering advice, helping us plan excursions, book restaurants etc, and even brought us home cooked cakes on our arrival!! Her kindness and hospitality was outstanding, and I can honestly say I look forward to booking another stay next year at El Mar Estate.

I went with my family and we stayed for 7 days, this wasn't enough as I would like to have stayed forever. George is so lovely and friendly and made the booking very easy for us. He gave us the details of our contact on site, Victor, who met us at a nearby supermarket the day we arrived. As we piled up our car with shopping, Victor even took a few with him on his bike! Super helpful. The villa is easy enough to find with some useful landmarks nearby. Road signs are easy to follow. The villa was fresh and bright and clean on arrival and stayed that way everyday as Victor and the cleaner returned to make sure everything was ok. So spacious, split level with plenty of room. The inifinity pool was beautiful and my favourite spot was on the floating water sofa. We asked for a BBQ to be cleaned and it happened in seconds, Victor was more than hospitable. I've seen some people mention the road up to the villa, which is quite steep, but we managed it just fine in a peugeot 206 type car (can't remember exact make). George will recommend a good person to hire a car from and that was much cheaper than booking from London. Plenty of lovely views and mountain goats. Don't be alarmed if they knock on your room window one day to wake you up...that was funny! The first day very breezy and quite chilly, however for the other 6 it was very hot not much breeze at all. Only thing I would recommned a new outdoor stereo system as it played up a few times and more bug deterrants as there are quite a few. Though that's a personal thing. Thank you George and team!

Both Sofia of the villa, and Georgia from Blueground gave impressive service and helped us at any point within the trip. The house was beautiful, big and clean with a lovely view of the sea just 3 minutes away! Great team of transportation helped us across the island and cleaners came daily which was a need with so many of us. Great service, great location, very good holiday. Thanks Sofia!
