Paxos – For the dreamers

Where to stay?

Torri E Melli

Nestled close to a forest of Olive trees and Paxos’s turquoise bay, Torri E Melli is a 5-star boutique hotel built in the 17th century. The hotel will be at your care for the most exquisite experience. Surrounded by wilderness, the hotel is the perfect spot for people looking for a hideaway holiday in the Greek Cyclades.

What to do?

Rent a boat – no licence needed!

In Paxos, you do not need a boat license to adventure around ! Enjoy the turquoise waters and stop for a picnic in one of Ionian’s idyllic secluded beaches. Appreciate the island’s beauty and rent a boat for the day or more, to discover the coastline from Lakka to Mongonissi Bay.


Mykonos – For the party animals

Where to stay?

The San Giorgio Hotel

The San Giorgio Hotel in Mykonos is located close to the now famous Scorpio. Mykonos’s pristine white architecture and amazing nightlife has everything one could wish for. The hotel stands out from the others by bringing together creative minds, from artists to Dj’s to entertain their clients. Watch unforgettable sunsets by the pool and rejuvenate with the hotel’s Yoga or Qi Gong classes.

What to do?

Show your best dance moves.

For the party animals – show your best moves at the island’s famous bars and clubs. Turn your night into a day at Scorpios, Alemagou or adventure in Mykonos’s glamorous bars. But before, do not forget to enjoy a meal at the seaside restaurant and cocktail bar Spilia – We advise the king crab linguine.


Folegandros – For a more relaxed stay in the Agean

Where to stay?

Blue Sand Hotel

Blue Sand Hotel is located and overlooking the Agali beach. Relax at unspoiled seaside heaven in a bohemian and minimalist interior inspired by the Cycladic tradition. The hotel has a wide selection of rooms, such as the Family sea view suites – 30 square metres of luxury and comfort, with a balcony. Wake up every morning to a spectacular sea view of the Agali beach and taste Mediterranean flavors at the hotel’s candlelit restaurant.

What to do?

Explore the island by scooter.

Go on an adventure and rent a  scooter. Its the best way to discover the island’s secret spots such as Ambeli or Lafano beach for the experienced riders. Anyways, you do not need a car in the teeny-tiny island of Folegandros – your hosts will pick and drop you off. Greek hospitality obliges 


Monemvasia – For the cultural geeks, sorry we meant Greeks

Where to stay?

Kinsterna Hotel

The town of Monemvasia is a small and historic town with numerous Byzantine churches. It is located in the southeastern Peloponnese region. Kinsterna Hotel is a Byzantine mansion surrounded by an impressive collection of fruit-bearing trees and ancient eucalyptus. At the Kinsterna hotel, clients can enjoy multiple services – children can play in the amazing tree house while adults can enjoy the hotel’s spa or relax at the pool among fragrant orange trees. Kinsterna is perfect for visitors who wish to experience Greek’s regions and history in the most relaxing environment.

What to do?

Visit the Medieval Castle.

The town is a Gibraltar-like rocky island in the Peloponnese region. After having a coffee in Agora in the lower town, uncover secrets of the 13th century Medieval castle. Get ready to be amazed by the charming little town filled with Byzantine, Ottoman and Venetian history. Not only this place is a piece of medieval paradise, but the castle also overlooks endless blue waters of the Ionian coast.
