Planning the ideal Mykonos family holidays at Mykonos Panormos Villas
Yet there are a couple of things you should consider, whilst planning your Mykonos family holidays. Iconic Chora, is one of the most idyllic places on the planet; and you should definitely get acquainted with its manifold charms. But it gets busy and super noisy at times.So while on Mykonos family holidays, it’s best to avoid staying amidst all this hustle and bustle; and rather to opt for a quieter, more secluded spot.
Conveniently situated 5 klm from the main town and not far from the airport Mykonos Panormos Villas, is a superb option for a gateway with the kids. This is a renowned, luxurious resort just 250 meters from beautiful, long and sandy Panormos bay, home to the world’s glamorous beau monde.

Then again for a bit of family bonding, MPV’s expert concierge, may arrange a kayaking day trip with a sumptuous picnic lunch; or an excursion to Apollo and Artemis’ birthplace and Unesco world Heritage site, Delos. What’s more you may opt to drive into the close by Kalo Livadi, Elia or Agios Ioannis beaches, for a change of scenery and to engage in various watersports- from jet ski and tubes, to parachute, diving and snorkelling. Afterwards, in the afternoon, it is always a good idea to take a leisurely stroll through Mykonos town.Get lost into the maze like streets; pop into the shops; take a selfie next to the island’s mascot Peter the Pelican; sit down at one of the beautiful waterfront cafes; eat and drink while taking in your surroundings.

Read on why you should opt for a holiday break in a Luxury Villa in Mykonos, in spring.
Nature is in full bloom, covering the island in a blanket of green dotted by red, yellow and purple, fragrant wildflowers. This is an image of Mykonos few- albeit very lucky-visitors get to see. Why not be one of them?
In late April and May temperatures range from the high 60s to the mid 70s. The water is most likely to be cold for a swim (unless you’re the daring, adventurous type!), yet you’ll be able to work on your suntan with ease; while it shall be warm enough-but not scorching- for long, delightful walks on the beach and amidst the cobblestone streets of Chora. Plus the tourist hordes will be absent, so you’ll get to enjoy the postcard perfect scenery without the hustle and bustle.
Mykonos’ beaches are world famous not without reason: Whether sandy or pebbled, all feature an amazing, striking landscape and the clearest, blue waters. Plus they have nowadays become the place to be: Especially the ones equipped with world class establishments, with 5 star services and opulent sunbeds, have even supplanted Chora’s bars and clubs as the preferred stomping ground of the jet setters and the glitterati.
The good thing is that at this time of year Mykonos’ beaches are significantly more quiet than they are during the peak summer months. This means that you’ll get to enjoy their worldwide famous charms sans the annoying, show off, poser types, that tend to creep in later in the season.
Arguably one of the most beautiful beaches in the island, just 5 klm from the main town, is the long and sandy Panormos cove: A favorite of the international “It” crowd and one of the most ambient, energetically charged sites on the island. In fact Panormos is home to the celebrities and socialites favorite haunt, Principote de Mykonos: An elite, exclusive venue-one of the top three hottest beach bar restaurants– with amazing Dj’s, enviable shopping options and world class chefs.

For, much more than your classic Luxury Villa in Mykonos, the Mykonos Panormos Villa Collection, is a unique hybrid that blends the exclusivity of a sequestered holiday home with the cosmopolitan sociability and round the clock, tailored service of a fully fledged resort.

Mykonos, is without doubt the Mecca of contemporary cosmopolitanism. But did you know that a few miles away from its shores, you’ ll find its equivalent in antiquity?
So how about hitting pause to the frenzied Mykonian days and nights for a while, to embark on a journey through time at the ancient world’s most sacred- and that’s not to mention most glamorous- destination?
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.
