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.
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.

-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:
dedicated work space

provision of any goods upon request 24/7
Keeping this evolving trend in mind, mykonos.luxury, as a leader company on the island providing a range of hospitality services, has assigned a Special Team equipped with all the necessary tools in order to offer value to business travelers or remote workers who are increasingly choosing vacation rentals to work from anywhere.

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.
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.
Mykonos Luxury, aside from renting your Villa and
promoting it in 30 countries, in 5 languages, is also in a position to

fee, freeing you from the stressful duties of handling multiple villa utility

COVID-19 has altered the way the entire world works.
With working from home becoming much more common now than it used to be,
some people are getting tired of being at home all the time and are thinking of
making the most of it by working remotely from somewhere else- such as a
vacation spot away from the big crowded city.
Not being tied down to one location for your job sounds like a dream come true.
If you were already growing tired of the city before Covid-19 and you are
able to work from home, remote
work lifestyle gives you the freedom to travel. And where would be best to, if
not to Mykonos?
If you’ve visited Mykonos before, you know the term “cool” is almost overused
when describing this bohemian island.
Mykonos has something for everyone -the beaches, the food, the weather and the
picturesque spots are just the icing on the cake. It blends cosmopolitan and Cycladic
vibes to perfection with traditional dishes and some of the best cocktails that
you can enjoy, as you turn off your laptop for the day. Not to be left behind
the low COVID-19 infection rate!
Surrounded by the Aegean Sea, there’s plenty of outdoor activities to choose from whenever you need a break from your laptop. For example, try water sports, horse riding and fishing. Or, for gentler stress relief, take a stroll in the foothills, choose to explore the island’s untamed beauty or just look around and feast your eyes on the endless blue. The colors are beyond your imagination and you’ll finally understand what all the fuss is about. Mykonos is the absolute entry in everyone’s bucket list.
Mykonos Luxury is a vacation rentals company offering a living concept that caters to professionals looking for the liberating freedom from regular office life, while working from their villa or even their pop-up sunny beach offices with Wi-Fi, and we provide convenience, flexibility, and reasonable rental terms and prices. Always with the prerequisite high-speed internet provided, our villas typically include a private pool, they are fully furnished, with sheets and towels provided, a fully equipped kitchen, laundry, and well-appointed leisure areas. To select the best spots, we looked at our 150+ villas portfolio in the island, focusing on the best properties. We also made sure that the villas were offered at reasonable prices, and that the internet speed was acceptable.
Here’s a couple of examples of what we offer:
Epic Twin- Elia Complex:
Located just a few steps from the famous Elia beach and only 10 min from Mykonos town, Epic Twin Elia is a twin villa complex, perfect for remote working. Both inside and outside, the guests’ eyes meet the whitewashed walls that blend perfectly with the rocky surrounding and the refreshing pool colour.

The spacious outdoor living area offers two private pools and a Jacuzzi, shaded dining and sitting spaces, gym, stone-built BBQ and pool bar. All three villas composing Houlakia resort are set up in two levels, with en-suite bedrooms, comfortable living and dining rooms and fully equipped kitchens

Bonus: Work on your tan while you work from an airy outdoor area, overlooking the Aegean Sea
The much-awaited Mykonos export, Nammos, finally opened its doors in Dubai on December 2019.
Tucked next to the main entrance of the Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach, Nammos Dubai with its own private beach, terrace and restaurant is promising fresh, funky day- time beach vibes, while also putting an emphasis on top food options– with the team behind beach club saying that they’re targeting the “well-traveled gastronomist”.
Chances are if you’ve ever ventured to Mykonos- Greece, you will have heard of Nammos, or perhaps even partied on its sands. Now it’s time to bring the party to Dubai.
Nammos was first created in Mykonos, in 2003 merging the fascinating beach of Psarou in a venue that would eventually redefine opulent beach life.
In the original Nammos in Mykonos, celebrities from all over the world and jet setters– including Mariah Carey, Valentino, Hugh Jackman and Leo DiCaprio – regularly swan in, eat lunch and party day-to-night by the beach.
They have found their summer escapist’s nirvana, and they loyally keep returning year after year. With this kind of clientele swinging through the doors, it made sense to bring the brand to Dubai, a ‘twin seaside town’ if ever there was one.
Visitors to Nammos Dubai can choose from the indoor and outdoor seating at the Mediterranean- inspired restaurant, which has stunning modern furnishings, combined with a luxe beachside feel. Nammos Dubai presents a brand-new gastronomic experience that comes to redefine luxurious entertainment in the United Arab Emirates.
All elements that make Nammos the top destination for bon-vivant are here; signature dishes, the most extravagant wine, and champagne labels and Mykonian verve, plus a lavish touch of Eastern elegance; what more could you ask for?
