Mykonos is notorious for its party scene, but it also has some of the best beaches in the Aegean (if not the world!), with long stretches of golden sand to play at or tiny coves to discover; and that’s not to mention stylish resorts, great food, top notch services, an iconic, celebrated Chora, as well as an enchanting historical and cultural legacy. While you might have thought otherwise, here is why family holidays in Mykonos is in fact an excellent idea.

 

 

1. Spend some carefree days on world class beaches

 

Mykonos has more than 30 beaches so there’s plenty of choice. Elia, Ornos and Agrari Beaches are among the many family-friendly stretches of sand, popular with locals as well as visitors, in which you’ll get to spend the day immersed in the transparent turquoise waters, paddling, snorkelling or trundling around on a pedalo. Yet if you are looking for the best of both worlds, head to long and sandy Panormos bay:  Boasting shallow waters it is safe for toddlers to potter about; but it is moreover the stomping ground of those in the know. In fact the on site Principote de Mykonos is an uber hot, super elite beach bar, restaurant and boutique; frequented by socialites, trend setters and A-listers. So you might as well sit back and enjoy the renowned Mykonos scene -at its most glorious!- while your kids play safely in the distance.

And there is also the breakfast buffet in the mornings, which all the kids and adults adore-both for its sumptuous offerings and opportunities for socialization with like minded individuals!

 

 

3. Enjoy the great outdoors

 

Speaking of pampering for you and your children, the MPV’ s concierge undertakes to organise everything you need for the most memorable family holidays in Mykonos. From a princely pic nic basket for the beach; to a private sailing trip; a kayaking excursion; horseback riding on the seafront; a cycling tour through the countryside; or even traditional cooking lessons.

The MPV’s expert staff shall identify which activities suit your family the most and then, with a keen eye on detail, put plans in to order.

 

 

4. Get lost in Mykonos Town

 

Celebrated by the likes of Le Corbusier, Jackie’ O and Princess Soraya; whitewashed, unfalteringly pristine Mykonos town is not a place to be rushed but instead to be unhurriedly savored. Get lost in its labyrinth, bouganvillia clad alleyways; stop at the Archaeological Museum, where you can admire jewellery, figurines, funerary statues, and pottery, which date back thousands of years. If your kids are interested in ships, do take them to the Aegean Maritime Museum, where a wide range of nautical instruments and ancient vessels are exhibited. Pop into the shops for designer wear or funky souvenirs; get photographed next to the island’s mascot Peter the Pelican; gaze at the seafront colorful rows of houses at Little Venice, sit down at one of its many restaurants, bars and cafes, eat and drink like a king and queen, while basking in your surroundings. You’re bound to love it -and your kids too!

 

 

5. Visit Ancient Delos

 

No family holidays in Mykonos would be complete without a trip to neighboring Delos: The mythological birthplace of the twins of Zeus and Leto, Apollo and Artemis, was the most important religious, cultural and commercial center of antiquity. Nowadays it’s remarkably well preserved ruins stand as testaments of its glorious past. Wonder through the historical site, admire the ancient theatre from the 3rd century BC, the Terrace of the Lions and the exhibits at Delos Museum like the Torso of a Kouros dating from the middle of the 6th century BC; the Marble statue of Boreas; and the Bronze mask of Dionysos, from the 2nd century BC. You are bound to feel history coming alive; and it is the kind of immersive, educational experience your offspring shall be thanking you about. A few miles from the cosmopolitan shores of Mykonos, Delos is easily accessible by boat-whilst MPV’s concierge may arrange everything for you.

Since the “discovery” of Mykonos- with its magnificent blue and gold beaches, hospitable, authentic people and iconic, whitewashed town- by the jet setters of the 60’s, the Greek island has emerged as a preferred holiday haven for clubbers, bon vivants and gourmands; beach bums, yachtsmen, surfers and water sports aficionados; couples, families and groups of friends with a distinctly epicurean frame of mind.

 

Invite your loved ones and enjoy world class beach bars, fine dining and phenomenal sunsets, while basking in the hospitality of Mykonos Panormos expert staff manning your stylish 3 bedroom private pool villa in Mykonos.

Little Venice was a pirate’s den

 

This super idyllic, most photogenic spot in town, sporting rows of colorful captain houses with balconies literally suspended above the sea; is nowadays home to some of the hottest bars in Mykonos. Yet back in the 17th century; when pirates used to be the absolute masters and commanders of the seas; Little Venice was one of their favorite hangouts. They sung until their throats protested and drunk until they dropped. This “legacy” of course is alive and kicking these days, as Little Venice is unfalteringly frequented by merrymaking globetrotters, sipping cocktails from dusk to dawn.

 

Paint it…red

 

Or blue or green. Traditionally all doors and windows in the Cyclades were painted in vivid colors. Honoring the local vernacular architecture, nowadays Mykonian houses and villas still have bright multi-colored openings. In fact Chora’s characteristic image with the whitewashed cube houses and the blue, red and green doors, is amongst the most famous in the planet.

 

Mythical origin

 

Greek mythology stipulates that Mykonos was named after its first ruler Mykons – who was himself no less than the son of god Apollo. Mykonos is also said to be the sight of the battle between Zeus and the Titans. As the story goes Hercules who fought on the side of his father, succeeded in defeating the local Giants and then imprisoned them under the Mykonian rocky terrain.Purportedly they still remain buried there, at Houlakia Bay: A beautiful, pebbly beach, 15 minutes by car from the MPV luxury resort in Mykonos.

 

From rags to riches

 

Granted nowadays Mykonos is arguably the most coveted, elite destination in the Mediterranean. Yet until the 1950’s- or so- it used to be a poverty stricken and rather barren; howbeit beautiful, island. Until it was discovered by the artists and bohemians of the era; then the royalty, the mega tycoons and the superstars. Fast forward to 2018: There are several, very much distinct and opulent establishments throughout the island catering for its plush, upmarket clientele. Yet should you wish to socialize with the true glitterati, your best bet is Principote de Mykonos: This is a super exclusive beach bar, restaurant and boutique; in fact the stomping ground of the island’s coolest, hippest bon vivants; just 250 meters away from the MPV luxury resort in Mykonos. You might as well join the party, which is right at your doorstep!

 

Mykonos in numbers

 

There are 15,000 permanent residents on the island in the winter. 4,000 of them are foreigners. In the summer though, Mykonos hosts over 50,000 people in 1 day.

 

Mykonos celebrates over 70 country fairs. 38 take place in the summer, from June till September.
There are 4 nudist beaches, 31 taxis, over 800 churches-80 of them alone in Chora- and more than 100 bars on the island. Get ready to explore!

Whether you go with your friends, with your flame, or with your spouse and kids; as a student or in your mature age; solo or with the whole gang; you will surely have a blast in Mykonos. For the island of the winds, boasting world class beaches, a pristinely beautiful old town, picturesque villages, 24/7 parties, glorious food, 5* services, and a unique mixture of sophistication and glamour with happy-go-lucky, laid back vibes; is no wonder amongst the planet’s “it” destinations.

Have a sunset cocktail in little Venice

 

Little Venice in Chora, is the quaint, colorful neighbourhood with the rows of houses built on the edge of the sea. (Allegedly) they were once pirate dens; nowadays they have been turned to sophisticated cafes, bars and restaurants, serving the most delightful cocktails. Have one -preferably a champagne based concoction-while you watch the sun set down. It is a time honored ritual, observed by almost anyone who has been to Mykonos, ever since it was first instituted by pioneering visitors in the early 80’s.

 

Go on a cruise around Delos and Rhenia islands

 

A few miles from Mykonos’ shores there are two uninhabited islands: Delos with the famous archaeological site and Rhenia with its azure waters. The former shall provide ample sustenance for your imagination and aesthetic; as you traipse along the remarkably well preserved remains of the glorious ancient city. The latter will nourish your body and clear your mind; as you dive or snorkel in the crystal clear Aegean sea. The expert concierge from your luxury villa in Mykonos Panormos, may arrange a private boat tour-with the vessel of your liking-along with a sumptuous on board pick nick. You just have to ask!

 

Enjoy a candle lit dinner at your luxury Villa in Mykonos

 

You don’t need a special occasion, nor excuse, to get some much deserved pampering. After all the island of the winds is all about indulgence; and no visit would be complete without enjoying a fabulous private dinner-for one, for two or for 20-at your luxury villa in Mykonos.

So, great news for all Mykonos aficionados-active or lazy; young and old; solo or with company; single or coupled; with or without kids.

Perfect weather

History comes alive at Delos Museum and World Heritage Site

 

But let’s take things from the beginning: Cyclades form a circle at the epicenter of which lies Delos. A tiny, dry and barren island of 3,4 square km, which paradoxically owes its fame to its very insignificance. As the legend goes, Leto who was carrying the offsprings of her paramour Zeus, in her quest to escape from the wrath of his jealous wife Hera, sought refuge in inconspicuous Delos. This little, desolate island thus became the birthplace of her twins, Apollo and Artemis; and thereafter, a major, cosmopolitan, religious and commercial center in antiquity, attracting pilgrims from all over Greece. At its height Delos boasts some 30.000 inhabitants, but it is eventually condemned into oblivion after several, successive pirate raids around 70 BC. Fast forward in time, following the excavations of the French Archaeological School of Athens, the golden city with the columns and mosaics, statues, ancient theatre, palestrae and once wealthy neighborhoods comes to light again in 1873. Scholars, academics and intellectuals of the time are fascinated. In 1904 the Archaeological Society at Athens builts Delos Museum, which is subsequently refurbished and enlarged in 1931 and 1972. During the 90’s Delos is recognised by UNESCO as a World heritage site. Today at Delos Museum and archeological site you’ll feel history coming alive as you stroll through the remarkably well preserved ancient arcades, markets, worship centers and temples. You will also admire the theatre district with the ancient theatre from the 3rd century BC and the Terrace of the Lions. Those proud beasts are actually plaster-cast replicas. Their real, marble counterparts are nowadays displayed in Delos museum and were originally offered by the Naxians in the 7th century BC to guard the sacred area. Exhibits at Delos Museum are indeed quite remarkable. Among the most notable are the Torso of a Kouros dating from the middle of the 6th century BC, which was  found in the sanctuary of Apollo and is most probably the product of a Parian workshop; the Marble statue of Boreas, personifying the north wind, abducting the Athenian princess Oreithya; and the Bronze mask of Dionysos, most likely a votive offering from the 2nd century BC.

 

Populated by just 14 employers working at Delos museum and archaeological site, this, steeped in history, tiny island comes in a stark contrast to the buzz and hubbub of neighboring Mykonos. So a mini break from all this frenetic action might prove particularly rejuvenating. Once revived and restored after your welcomed escapade at Delos, you’ll be able to return full force to your base at Mykonos Panormos Villas, at the homonymous Panormos bay, home to the world’s glitzy and glamorous enfant gate, to resume with the parting and overall indulging.
