Katia at Scarpa Bar with Windmills

Here I am sitting at Scarpa Bar in Little Venice gazing at the famous windmills...a coffee on the way...great views...sunny day...great company...bliss!

I have put together this page to help you enjoy the best that the island has to offer,  and choose your accommodation easily...

Mykonos, in the Cycladic islands, famous for her white cube villages and relaxed island lifestyle, has come to epitomise the Greek summer holiday.

As the home of bright light, sandy beaches, clear waters, the deep blue Aegean sea and fresh air, this island is also known for her luxury, style and jet-set lifestyle. Here we highlight some small rooms in town, also known as Chora, so you can save time walking to and from your studio - just step out and you are already amongst it all.

There are thousands of little lane ways to explore, so the main town can be best seen on foot. Due to the high numbers of tourists during high season, I really do suggest that you do not visit in summer, it is best to visit in shoulder season of spring or autumn.

You will then be able to experience beautiful weather on the island, without the crowds.

Stay Inside a Windmill

Just 10 minutes walk from Little Venice and the centre of Chora is this converted Mykonos Windmill which has to be one of the most unusual places to stay on the island.

Mykonos fishing boatThis beautiful blue and white wooden fishing boat greeted me in the old harbour as I arrived from the big ferry harbour

This image above is one of my favourites that I took whilst on the island... the sweet fishing boats sitting in the harbour... just a stone's throw from the trendy cafes and restaurants and million dollar speed boats. Clear water... a cute little boat... it doesn't get much more perfect or more Greek than this!
