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.

Red roses, jewellery, heart shaped chocolates and the cutest teddy bears. Spicy lingerie, candlelit dinners and cards bearing “I love you’s” (or other more ingenious declarations of affection) .

On February 14th, lovers (actual and aspiring) around the world, take the opportunity to express their love and undying devotion in in all sorts of -often- imaginative and resourceful, ways.

 

But why this day? How did February 14th   become a contemporary feast of love?

The prevalent version nowadays favors the story of St. Valentine -the day is named in his honour after all. Valentine was a Roman priest, in fact the patron of epileptics. He and St Mario continued to marry Christian couples, in defiance of Claudius Gothicus’s decree. The cruel Emperor was having a hard time drafting soldiers for his military campaigns. He attributed this to men being reluctant to leave their loved ones and their families behind to go to war, so he banned marriage. The two priests were arrested, tortured and killed for their actions. While Mario has been more or less relegated to oblivion, Valentine is lavishly celebrated every year on February 14th, which is allegedly the day of his death. (more…)
