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.
Tips for visiting Mykonos including walking notes...
Our choice of accommodation in Mykonos for the following reasons:
Christina Studios are right in amongst the stena of
Matoyianni, a stone's throw from everything in town. Wake up in a
daze and wander for less than a minute to Little Venice for your first
coffee of the day. Nice clean rooms, village style.
The hotel has a lovely pool with stunning views over the ocean. Rooms are clean and well-priced.
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. Beautifully designed and lavishly decorated, this is no rustic experience, but a modern stylish decor with access to a shared pool and jacuzzi, internet and complimentary breakfast.
The windmill welcomes 6 guests in 2 bedrooms with 4 beds and 2 bathrooms in a stunning elevated position with expansive ocean views.

Wandering around Mykonos Chora on these beautiful sunny days have to be some of the most aesthetically pleasing experiences in Greece!
Something about these shapes and colours enlivens the soul, doesn't it?
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!
I love this vibrant collection of images from the Cycladic islands of Greece, including Mykonos, Santorini, Amorgos and many others. Made by 'Visit Greece' - the national tourism people - this is just a tease - making you want to hop on the plane and visit - now!!
