Mykonos, which is placed in the middle of Cyclades, is an island with dual personality. It’s one of the most picturesque islands in the whole Cyclades, with traditional backstreets, whitewashed houses, chapels and windmills, and at the same time it’s one of the most popular tourist destinations, which has excelled at international level for its cosmopolitan character.
Visitors of Mykonos can enjoy their holidays in a unique natural environment despite the island’s development. There are wonderful beaches, whitewashed cottages, proud windmills and small pigeon houses but above all, there are friendly and smiling people. It combines all the above with the transparent and refreshing summer atmosphere, its colors, the earthy, the grey, the white and the blue in all shades, the endless stone walls, the prickly and the reeds, justify the reason that Mykonos, from the early years, became the hotspot place for artists and worldwide famous people. The entire complex of Mykonos – Delos – Rineia, has been characterized as an ‘’area of outstanding natural beauty’’ and it is protected by a special legislation.
The reputation of Mykonos and the great number of visitors, among whom really important personalities from all over the world, created a significant commercial activity on the island. Last but not least, if you visit Mykonos in winter time and you seek to approach, discuss and make company with the islanders, you will find out that the majority remains simple, vivid and hospitable. They always find as much time as it is needed to keep their traditions and their customs.
