In Mykonos, in peak season it’s difficult not only to find options for living, but also to book a table in a top restaurant, beach club or get a ticket to a concert of some trendy artist, for example DJ Black Coffee from South Africa. Nevertheless, for the Russians Mykonos is still terra incognita. And although among our compatriots there are media persons who have been “adepts” of the island for more than 10 years, Mykonos is still a new destination for travel. Villa Artisti team and our private concierge is available to provide access to popular places, create all conditions for an unforgettable vacation and organize a program that can include visits to Delos, Santorini, relaxation after a noisy and fun Mykonos at the Amanzoe Hotel in the Peloponnese and getting to know the secrets of the Acropolis before flying home.
48 hours in Mykonos.
Stroll through the labyrinthine streets to the cute, buzzy Popolo bakery (18 Drakopoulou St) and set yourself up for the day with a big bowl of Greek yogurt with honey or fruit, washed down with a bracing espresso freddo (a classic cold coffee drink here).
Around 9am you should still have the streets mostly to yourself, bar the island’s industrious workers who buzz about in minivans and mopeds making deliveries to bars and restaurants, meaning you can forge, unencumbered, to its most picturesque parts, such as the five Windmills of Kato Mili, which sit on a small hill above Little Venice. There used to be dozens on the island, mostly built by the Venetians in the 16th century, but their use as wheat mills died out in the early 20th.
