“A nomad i will remain for life, in love with distant and uncharted places.”
- Saronic Gulf
Welcome to Greece's most famous island! The windy island! Think of Mykonos and you think of jet set and glamour! And you wouldn’t be wrong, but Mykonos is so much more than the haunt of the rich and famous who flood to soak in the Greek summer! Think of Mykonos as a simple whitewashed paradise steeped in history and tradition. There is definitely something for everybody and Mykonos will exceed your expectations, however if you are looking for something a little quieter, July and August can get crowded.
Santorini or Thira as it is sometimes known is the precious gem of the Aegean. Thira is crescent shaped and located in the southernmost part of the Cyclades. It is actually a group of islands consisting of Thira, Thirassia, Aspronissi, Palea and Nea Kameni. It is without a doubt, considered to be the most sought-after romantic hotspot in Greece and for very specific reasons. Almost anywhere you go on the island you will be presented with a magnificent view. Literally breath-taking sights seem to be around every corner. There are not many places in the world, where you can exclusively enjoy panoramic views, of the most glorious sunsets while perched on the rim of a massive active volcano in the middle of the sea!
The pine-covered island of Spetses is the southernmost island in the Saronic. The actual name of the island is a derivative of "Isola de Spezzie", the Island of Perfume. The name was given by the Venetians because of the many and heady aromas of the herbs growing on the mountains that filled the air. It is an island that offers a tranquil and cosmopolitan life, wonderful beaches, quaint small bays, remarkable historical sites, a charming old harbour and everything one would need to enjoy a pleasant get away from it all stay.
When you hear Athens, your mind instantly wonders to a loud, hustling, bustling city where the old meets the new; a city of ancient monuments like the Parthenon, the national gardens, and then of course there are the winding streets of Plaka. A ‘village’ within the city and an ‘island’ feel for those who don’t have time to visit the islands themselves; typically touristy, pedestrianised and commercial but arguably one of the nicest neighbourhoods in central Athens! Athens is simply brimming with creative energy with its museums, theatres, exhibitions, festivals and for sure there are no limits to shops, restaurants, bars and clubs. But apart from its illustrious history, Athens is now home to a dynamic new generation of entrepreneurs who are enhancing the city’s look, feel and vibe.
