LET'S GET LOST IN MYKONOS

LET’S GET LOST IN MYKONOS

Mykonos is lodged between Paros, Naxos, Tinos and Syros that all belong to the group of Cyclades Islands in Greece.

If partying is practically your middle name and you’ll love to enjoy in the beautiful view, good food and traditional white and blue houses in the meanwhile, add Mykonos to your list of places to see in Greece.

Mykonos alone has its own timetable so don’t try to make a schedule, as soon as you arrive on the island it will mesmerise you with its own, special ambiance. Mykonos has two very different faces: one which all visitors can see and the second one which is shown to the very few selected ones so do accept what the island wants to give you as a gift and make the most of it.I have had the great chance to be visiting the island since many many years now, and I am so lucky to go back every year for pleasure and since some time for work.

Do contact me for further info and I will be happy to help you discover this iconic isle..

  • Hippie fishHippie Fish Mykonos, a beachside sushi style spot near Agios Ioannis

 

The Hippie Fish is an up market restaurant located on the beach of Agios Ioannis, one of the finest beaches on the island with spectacular views of Delos.  It is a traditional taverna which serves greek dishes and even though I can’t say that the food is my favourite one, the amazing view over the unique  sacred island of Delos will compensate for it.Moreover the beach is very beautiful and the ambiance very relaxing. Last but not least ”Shirley Valentine” was filmed here.
