WHY A MYKONOS LUXURY YACHT IS A MUST HAVE RENTAL

MYKONOS LUXURY YACHTING

-A day to remember, a memory worth every penny-

WHY A MYKONOS LUXURY YACHT IS A MUST HAVE RENTAL

Mykonos yacht charters are fast becoming one of the most popular Greek islands for A-listers and discerning travellers; the 2021 season was a ‘yacht summer’ as hundreds of Mykonos Luxury guests rented out luxury motor yachts whether the rental was for a daily cruise, with a sunset champagne stop at Little Venice, or to sleep on and discover the island from the comfort of a superyacht.

Mykonos, situated between Paros and Naxos, and within a few cruising minutes next to Rhinia islands and the mystique island of Delos (under the UNESCO umbrella), offers yacht charters with an enviable reputation, being one of the most beautiful islands in the Aegean Sea.  Indeed, its charming architecture and undisturbed beaches are regularly compared with the iconic island of Santorini, only a short distance away.

Mykonos, thanks to its cosmopolitan nightlife, modern seafront restaurants, and sky-blue waters, the island has become a harbor for young celebrities and yacht charterers looking to unwind and to party on the yachts in privacy.

Cozing a unique colourfulness, the historic streets of Mykonos are totally vibrant by day and beautifully lit by night. Known locally as ‘The Island of the Winds’, the climate is utterly inviting throughout the year and just the thing to enjoy after stepping off a superyacht. Populated by movie stars and sophisticated travellers, there are a number of beaches, archaeological sites, and miles of maze-like streets to get lost down.

Whether a vacation is based around romance or simply a chance to enjoy a relaxing environment, Mykonos offers a variety of options to its visitors. The traditional restaurants located on the east side of town, for example, allow guests to enjoy fine cuisine whilst taking in breath-taking views which overlook the Town and the Aegean Sea.

Similar to the atmosphere and character of St Tropez and Ibiza, the seemingly subdued island comes alive at night, with a number of trendy clubs by the beach offering an escape for those keen to party.  As well as taking advantage of the hotspots found on the mainland, charter guests will naturally want to head out on their superyacht to discover the more isolated attractions which surround Mykonos.

With the waters changing from emerald green to turquoise blue along the passage between these destinations, it’s just as enjoyable to kick back and spend time getting to grips with any inflatable toys and tenders available on board.

Having the opportunity to see and do so many unique things in and around Mykonos, charter guests will find with us an opportunity to plan an itinerary which satisfies the particular tastes of their party, to enjoy private chef’s delicacies on board and to party all day and night.

Mykonos luxury island showed its teeth, once more, in Summer Season 2021

-As CNN had successfully predicted in April (see link below)

The global pandemic forced travellers to cancel their plans for the last two summers.  Refunds and cancellations remain the “name of the game” worldwide, with reservation platforms, travel agencies, airlines and the whole industry struggling to prevent further revenue drops.

Mykonos, even with the experts arguing that the pandemic would equally to 2020 affect the 2021 Season, was a bright exception.  The Greek Government took all the necessary measures to protect the health of the massive incoming tourism and the local population.  Admittedly, the government did a good job and the Covid-19 stats remained stable throughout the summer months. 

Mykonos island, as a luxury destination, enjoyed a long season of guests indulging themselves in this small Aegean paradise.  Luxury villas, luxury motor yachts and the beach bars were just the tip of the iceberg. 

Mykonos with its “fitness survival” personality, produced an environment fit for all tastes.  The Mykonos scene in 2021 called for many luxury villas in isolated areas of the island to be equally popular. Parties and events -with a small venue payment- replaced the bar restaurants and other public venues.  Private cruises with luxury motor yachts were also a protagonist in the summer arena.  With protocols reaching up to 40 people on a single yacht, M/Y were a magnet for guests that wanted to be together all day, in privacy, in luxury, and without the Covid threat.  Private chefs in villas and onboard yachts also played a huge role in the “group privacy” post-covid culture.

Even private beaches in the southern part of the island, were visited for the first time by guests that have been repetitive for years!  In contrast to 2020, the island was heavily chosen by our out-of-continent guests, with the Americans reaching the 19% of the total of visitors.  Mykonos, as an international destination, once again was one of the top options for American citizens, and not only.  Israel and the Middle East once more honoured Mykonos during the high season, and Russian guests increased by 4% since 2019.

Mykonos Luxury, with its selection of 140 luxury villas, all well culminated to be up to the American hosting standards, was one of the top local agencies to open its wings and fly, along with its guests, into the blue Aegean sky right above the diamond of the Cyclades, the Diva of the Aegean, our cherished Mykonos to which our team is so devoted.

How to get from Athens to Mykonos I Your route to your Mykonos Luxury Villa

How to arrive to the ultra-modern International Airport of “Eleytherios Venizelos” and head straight to Mykonos from there!

Really, the best and fastest way to arrive to your Villa is to fly direct from your country of origin to Mykonos International Airport and straight to your swimming pool for a chilled glass of white wine and some nuts and fruit!
Indeed, during the Season almost all air-carriers and due to the high demand, either offer direct flights to the island, or provide connecting flights, sometimes with you staying on the plane for just a half hour, until the plane takes off again and lands in just 25 minutes –there is no time note even for a coffee on board- to Mykonos!

Nevertheless, with all the turbulence that Covid Restrictions have been creating, some air-carriers have either aborted the direct flights or still hesitate to announce.

With Season behind the corner, it might not be a bad idea for travelers to book their flights to Athens, the beautiful capital of Greece since the Ancient Times, arrive to the ultra-modern International Airport of “Eleytherios Venizelos” and head straight to Mykonos from there!

Take a private airplane

Our Concierge team can arrange a private flight for you, on the exact time you arrive to Athens, and fly you safely to Mykonos along with your friends, family, pets and luggage! You will not event exit the Airport building.

Step on a helicopter

Again, Mykonos Luxury Concierge team can arrange a private helicopter flight for you, and have you landed near your villa, with car transfer arranged to wait for 10 meters from the closest heliport! 

Rent a yacht

Go to the nearest marina and enjoy a two hour cruise on the deep blue Aegean waters breathing the fresh air and arriving at the new Mykonos port or any other bay close to your Villa, all ready or a shower and a Mediterranean meal!

Book a direct flight

Aegean Airlines, a heavily awarded Greek carrier, a member of Star Alliance, Greece’s largest airline providing since 1999 until today full service, premium quality haul services, has three o more connecting flights to Mykonos, daily.  Make sure you book well ahead as those flights are reaallyy crowded!

Volotea, a Spanish low-cost airline with bases in Spain, Italy, France and Greece, also offers quite a few connecting flights daily during the Summer Season.

The popular site Skyscanner provides all the details of flights from Athens to Mykonos along with the updated Covid info required by travelers. 

Take the high-speed ferry

Simply book one of the multiple ferries that execute the Athens-Mykonos trip many times daily from either Rafina Port or Piraeus Port.  We advise you not to waste time by jumping between different ferry companies but to use the Ferryhopper instead, which simply includes every available trip.

Mykonos has reopened to travelers I Here’s who can visit Greece right now

The country is now welcoming tourists from the EU, UK and around a dozen other countries around the world

Updated: Thursday 1 April 2021, 11:58 am

Mykonos is one of the top world’s destinations. 

Renting a villa on the island of Mykonos has always been the best choice for a great vacation, for the ideal way to celebrate, for the no-turning down “proposal” idyllic spot on the planet!  Mykonos Luxury managing more than 130 luxury villas in Mykonos is prepared in depth to welcome the 2021 Season’s guests.

After several very long months, Greece started lifting lockdown restrictions through summer and autumn last year – and now it wants to help salvage your 2021 holiday plans. The country has already resumed flights to all its major airports and is now set to loosen its travel restrictions further as it gears up for peak summer tourist season.

Travelers currently allowed in include residents and citizens of EU and Schengen member states, plus the UK and around a dozen other countries around the world including Australia, Japan, Israel and Turkey.

There are also new rules for international arrivals. All visitors must fill out a ‘passenger locator form’ at least 24 hours before arriving. This requires ‘detailed information on [passengers’] point of departure, the duration of previous stays in other countries, and the address of their stay while in Greece’. They must also bring a negative test result from within 72 hours of arrival, and for the time being, quarantine for seven days on arrival.

However, the country will scrap the mandatory self-isolation period from May 14.

As the country prepares for summer tourist season, international visitors will only be allowed in if they

  • can prove they have had the vaccine
  • have antibodies’ paper proof
  • can provide a negative test result from within the past 72 hours.

There will also be random testing at the airport, and if your test comes positive, the country’s tourism Minister has said all healthcare costs will be covered by the Greek state.

So in other words: it’s not actually that long before you will be able to jet off on that balmy Aegean getaway. Just don’t forget that all-important test result – or vaccine certificate, if you’re lucky enough to have one.

Remember, many countries are still warning against all non-essential travel and some are quarantining all overseas arrivals, including their own returning citizens.

Choosing vacation rentals to «work from anywhere» | Τhe new trend of working-from-anywhere” has arrived to Mykonos Island

-Why Mykonos Villas are ideal for hosting executives to work from “home”-

Leading companies in the world are all the more establishing the concept of working from home for their executives.  Recent statistics show that working from home can be up to 13.5% more productive for individuals with specific duties.  Internet, as the unifier of the globe is a protagonist in this new trend, whilst lately, the concept I being transformed to “working from anywhere”.  Executives and employees can work while on an out-of-home tranquil space, sharing quality time with their colleagues and/or families. 

Villas in Mykonos along with several other sourthern Mediterranean geographical spots have proven to be the ideal choices of American and European corporations that rent properties on the behalf of their executives. 

“Google, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan, Capital One, Zillow, Slack, Amazon, PayPal, Salesforce and other major companies have extended their work-from-home options, according to the largest human resources organization, SHRM, and other sources.” (Source FORBES, May 24th 2020)

According to people that were forced to live the “work from home” experience, they have sometimes felt that the formal workplace, although at times distracting, offers the opportunity for social interaction. Some people need the buzz of the office to feel secure or be productive. Office background noise and the interaction with colleagues were missing from executives that were obliged to stay at home as a reaction to the COVID-19 work-from-home policies in Sweden.  It’s well known that working alone, neglecting self-care and failing to log off from work on a regular basis can lead to burnout. 

People want different things. Some remote workers are looking for the solitude of a pristine forest or the relaxed lifestyle of a hippie ocean island. Others prefer the fast pace of modern city life or the quiet of country-based communal surroundings with an emphasis on sustainable living. Whatever the choice, the common thread running throughout is the desire to mitigate the isolation and loneliness that can come from this kind of independent, often solitary lifestyle. 

And this is why, companies or individuals end up choosing to combine the isolation and tranquility of a Villa on an island like Mykonos, and at the same time the opportunity to exit their “remote office” and enter straight into a cosmopolitan hub, like the island of Mykonos, which offers award-winning restaurants, multicultural vibes, a crazy party scene, amazing beaches, magical sunsets, clubs, galleries, and with all of it happening within a 10-minute drive from one of the most modern international airports in Europe!

The combination of the mykonos.luxury villa qualities which cover all corporate needs, along with the island’s supreme atmosphere has been described by one of our customer as “Pure bliss!”

As remote working becomes an increasingly viable option for more people, with location independence increasingly the new norm, Mykonos Luxury is in a position to offer short or long-term leases of luxury Villas which have been transformed to work-friendly alternative accommodations for both business travelers and leisure travelers looking to work remotely.  All of our properties meet high quality service requirements and are fully suitable by providing:

  • seamless wi-fi
  • dedicated work space
  • web TV 
  • high quality service
  • certified disinfection
  • cleanliness high scores
  • smoke alarms
  • fire extinguishers
  • provision of any goods upon request 24/7

Η πολυπολιτισμική Μύκονος φόρεσε χειμερινό μανδύα προστατεύοντας από την απομόνωση της πανδημίας όσους επέλεξαν το άλλο της πρόσωπο

Η Μύκονος , με το πολυπολιτισμικό περιβάλλον της και χωρίς τον φόβο του Covid που πρυτάνευσε στις ευρωπαϊκές πρωτεύουσες και τις περισσότερες μεγάλες πόλεις απομονώνοντας  τον πληθυσμό τους σε όλα τα επίπεδα, κράτησε, φέτος, 42% μεγαλύτερο χειμερινό πληθυσμό από πέρσι.

Ψάχνοντας τις αλήθειες για το Νότιο Αιγαίο μαθαίνει κανείς ότι ο χειμώνας στο νησί της Μυκόνου είναι κατά μέσον όρο ήπιος, ενώ χιόνι εμφανίζεται σπάνια –ανά δεκαπενταετία περίπου-.  Ομίχλη παρατηρείται επίσης πολύ σπάνια στο νησί ενώ η μέση θερμοκρασία του χειμώνα είναι 12ºC με 25,5ºC.  Και, το κυριότερο, η μέση μέση ετήσια ηλιοφάνεια πλησιάζει τις 2.700 ώρες κατατάσσοντας τη Μύκονο στις πρώτες θέσεις πανευρωπαϊκά!

Το φετινό φθινόπωρο οδήγησε Μυκονιάτες, Αθηναίους, αλλά και Ευρωπαίους να πάρουν την απόφαση να κατοικήσουν στην ναυαρχίδα του Νότιου Αιγαίου.   Τα αυστηρά μέτρα, η πολυκοσμία και η οικονομική ασφυξία ήταν ίσως κάποιοι από τους λόγους  που πολλοί αποφάσισαν να κάνουν μία νέα αρχή και να αποκεντρωθούν.  Η Μύκονος, για ακόμα μια φορά, αποτέλεσε επιλογή πολλών επωνύμων και μη. 

Έχοντας σύγχρονα ιατρικά κέντρα, ιδιωτικά ξενόγλωσσα σχολεία για τα παιδιά, διεθνές αεροδρόμιο, πρόσβαση σε όλες τις υπηρεσίες και αγαθά αλλά και εξαιρετικό καιρό, η Μύκονος το 2020 προς 2021, με τις κοσμοϊστορικές αλλαγές για την ανθρωπότητα, αποτέλεσε τη μόνιμη βάση κατοικίας Ελλήνων κι Ευρωπαίων.   Μεγάλες πολυεθνικές εταιρίες έστειλαν σε μεγάλες σύγχρονες βίλες τα στελέχη τους κάτω από την ομπρέλα του «work from home» εφόσον άλλωστε η τεχνολογία δίνει τη δυνατότητα της απομακρυσμένης εργασίας, και η ζωή σε ένα νησί σαν τη Μύκονο δεν είναι πλέον ένα άπιαστο όνειρο αλλά μία νέα πραγματικότητα. Η Μύκονος, το νησί με ένα από τα μεγαλύτερα ποσοστά ηλιοφάνειας πανευρωπαϊκά, αποτέλεσε φέτος έναν χειμερινό παράδεισο για Έλληνες και Ευρωπαίους που θέλησαν  να προστατευθούν από τον κορωνοϊό σε ένα περιβάλλον μοναδικό.  Άνθρωποι από διάφορες χώρες εγκαταστάθηκαν στο νησί, με αποτέλεσμα τα στενά σοκάκια της Χώρας να περπατιούνται από κόσμο κάθε μέρα και ώρα.

Άνθρωποι που κατοικούν στη Μύκονο εξομολογούνται ότι το άλλο πρόσωπο είναι φανερό, αλλά δεν το βλέπουμε. Είναι η δεύτερη αλλά υπαρκτή μορφή του νησιού. Είναι η Μύκονος, που είναι και κάτι άλλο πέρα από το διαδεδομένο, αδιάκοπα προβεβλημένο κοσμοπολίτικο και ψυχαγωγικό της πρόσωπο.  Οι κάτοικοι στη Μύκονο ζουν όπως οι κάτοικοι σε όλη την έκταση της ελληνικής επαρχίας. Κι όσοι σπεύδουν στο νησί για λίγες μέρες με μοναδικό τους κίνητρο την ολοήμερη διασκέδαση, σπάνια αφήνουν χρόνο για να παρατηρήσουν όσους κινούνται σε άλλο ρυθμό από το δικό τους.

In winter 2020-2021, the multicultural Mykonos wore a winter cloak for the first time

Mykonos, with its multicultural environment and without the fear of Covid, which took place in European capitals and most major cities, isolating their population at all levels, this year has a 42% larger “winter population” than last year.

Looking for the truths about the Southern Aegean, one learns that the winter on the island of Mykonos is on average mild, while snow occurs rarely-every fifteen years or so -. Fog is also very rare on the island while the average winter temperature is 12ºC to 25.5ºC. And, most importantly, the average annual sunshine is approaching 2,700 hours ranking Mykonos in the first places in Europe!

This autumn led Myconians, Athenians, but also Europeans to take the decision to live in the flagship of the South Aegean. Strict measures, overcrowding and economic asphyxiation were perhaps some of the reasons many decided to make a fresh start and decentralize. Mykonos, once again, was a choice of many.

Having modern medical centers, private foreign language schools for children, International Airport, access to all services and goods along with excellent weather, Mykonos in 2020 to 2021, with the world-historical changes for humanity, became the permanent home of Greeks and Europeans. Large multinational companies have sent their executives to large modern villas under the umbrella of “work from home” since technology enables remote work, and life on an island like Mykonos is no longer an elusive dream but a new reality. Mykonos, the island with one of the highest levels of sunshine throughout Europe, was this year a winter paradise for Greeks and Europeans who wanted to protect themselves from coronavirus in a unique environment. People from different countries settled on the island, as a result of which the narrow streets of Chora –the “sokakia”- are walked by people every day and hour.

People living in Mykonos confess that her “other face”  is obvious, but we do not see it. It is Mykonos, which is something different than its widespread, incessantly promoted cosmopolitan and entertaining summer nature. The inhabitants of Mykonos live like the inhabitants throughout the Greek province. It is a fact that those who hasten to the island for a few days during the summer, and with the sole motive of all-day fun, rarely have the time to observe those who move in another rhythm than their own.

Easter in Mykonos this year will be the early May Vacation of your dreams!

Combine Mykonos Luxury with Greek Islands’ Traditions

Julian Calendar Easter

The majority of Orthodox churches use the Julian calendar, established by Julius Caesar in 45 B.C., as opposed to the more modern (1582) Gregorian calendar. By that calendar, Orthodox Easter always falls between April 4 and May 8, while Catholic and Protestant Easter falls between March 22 and April 25. The Orthodox Easter in 2021 falls on Sunday 2nd May and will hit the beginning of the Summer Season on the island!

Mykonos in Spring – the Summer Season kick-off

Throughout Easter time in Mykonos flowers are in bloom, the sun is shining, and spring awakens the tourist season as people begin to flock to the island from all over the world. Greek Easter is the highlight of this spring and is the holiest of holidays for Greeks. During Greek Orthodox Holy Week, visitors swarm the islands and villages of Greece as they leave the cities behind to celebrate the holiday with family and friends. Mykonos combines all the traditions of Easter with a cosmopolitan luxury flare!

In Mykonian tradition, the holy icon of Panagia Tourliani Monastery in Ano Mera is brought to the main Chora or Town of Mykonos at the beginning of Lent, 40 days before Easter. Locals and sightseers follow on foot. The procession with the icon lasts up to 2 hours. On the Saturday of Lazarus (the day before Palm Sunday) the icon is returned to its original home. On that day all of the bakeries on the island prepare “lazarakia” a sweet pastry shaped like little men with their arms crossed that is topped with cloves, sugar, and currants.Throughout Holy Week bakeries and homemakers make traditional sweet bread called “Lambrokouloures” and that they decorate the pastry with eggs that have been died red.

The Holy Light

Beginning with the evening of Good Saturday and continuing through Easter Sunday is a time for heartfelt celebration.  Islanders gather at Churches scattered throughout the island where they wait to receive the Holy Light (a flame lit in Jerusalem, brought back to Greece, and distributed around the country). A feast follows where everyone eats the traditional “Magiritsa” soup of greens, and boiled lamb.

Easter Delicacies

You can be sure that partying is expected every night if you’re visiting Mykonos, even during Easter time. Easter Sunday is the culmination of Holy Week and is the day of the most lavish feast. Lamb roasted on the spit, onion pie, kopanisti, cheese, louza (Mykonian cured ham), red eggs, and assorted of salads are served throughout the day of celebration!

What is the best time to visit Mykonos

Easter 2021 is around the corner

If you have ever wondered which the best time to visit Mykonos Island is, then this post is for you. Mykonos is a highly popular island in the Greek Cyclades cluster, known far and wide for its glamorous aura and cosmopolitan flair. It has been in the jet set spotlight for a handful of decades, being visited at various times of year as it is in fact an island capable of offering the visitor a wide range of experiences.

Easter on 2nd May 2021

The Season begins in April, when the weather starts to warm up and Orthodox Easter which this year is on 2nd May, attracts tourists from everywhere around the globe. Easter melancholic rituals bring a mystic aura to the island and create a unique atmosphere with all lights being dimmed and the music of bars and restaurants turned off as the Epitaph passes by the narrow white pedestrian streets of the Mykonos Town. 

Easter is the turning point when Mykonos emerges from its winter stillness, and prepares to be the cosmopolitan destination with the abundant joy it offers its guests.  The island is re-energized and ready to host another “summer” season, full of new experiences. Spring in Mykonos is one of the most pleasant times of the year in terms of both weather and crowds. The prices are lower during spring, so you can find some excellent deals on both Villas and flights, particularly at the beginning of the season. You can enjoy a lot of great food and have access to the best restaurants without long queues. You will find tons of cafés and bars to relax at and music playing on every corner. The service is also better, and you will probably get to know a lot of local people when going out for dinner.

What to do in “spring” Mykonos

Visit the charming Chora, where you can spend an entire day walking and sightseeing. Take a walk through the Venetian Castle with its ancient ruins and a view of the village. Visit the Odysseas Elytis Theater and enjoy the surroundings while having a nice break. Bring a small picnic with you and enjoy the quiet setting here in spring. Then, continue to Panaghia Gremiotissa – the highest spot of the village, and watch a beautiful sunset. 

You can enjoy a lot of great food and have access to the best restaurants without long queues. You will find tons of cafés and bars to relax at and music playing on every corner. The service is also better, and you will probably get to know a lot of local people when going out for dinner. 

Take a day-trip to Delos Island – a Monument of International Cultural Heritage. It is a perfect place for exploring the island’s and Greece’s history, where you will find several archeological exhibits. Visit the Archaeological Museum of Delos that is one of the most important museums in the country. Here, you will find the significant findings from the excavations on Mykonos. 

Go and see the Three Wells that provided the water to the entire town in the 18th century, up until the 1950s. The saying is that if you drink from one of the wells, you will one day return to the island. Continue to the Manto Mavrogenous square near the old port and visit the Town Hall as well.

Stand anywhere on this whitewashed island and breathe in.  Keep the oxygen produced by the Aegean Sea into your lungs and fell reborn, reenergized and rejuvenated just by breathing!  This is Mykonos!

Mykonos Weather in June: Great weather, everything open, and nightlife is thumping. Beach parties with DJs start about mid-month.

Mykonos Weather in July: Almost the height of summer but still a little quieter than August. Hot weather, huge beach parties, and Mykonos Town bars are crazy (and fun).
