I know that lots of you (me as well) are planning their summer holidays already! There is nothing wrong with that despite the fact that we are about to celebrate Christmas in few weeks. What would be quite mean is letting yourself decide on the last minute. You see if you are in a hurry, you are most probable to make a mistake. But we cannot live with such mistakes once our vacation is destroyed.
One magnificent summer destination that will for sure compensate you for bothering is Cyclades. It is actually a complex of dozens of tiny or bigger islands in the heart of the Aegean Sea. It still doesn’t ring a bell? Then how about Mykonos and Santorini? You must have heard of them-that is for sure. And yes-they belong to the aforementioned world-known complex. But let’s check it out in more detail what we can do on some of those islands once we land in Greece.
GO HIKING IN SANTORINI
That is actually like being transferred to another planet. It is undoubtedly a natural gem and only God knows how on Earth it turned out to be so divergent yet appealing. Whether you get by boat or by plane to the island, you will soon realize that it has nothing to do with the rest of Cyclades in spite of being a major part of it. Unless you are fond of lazing around drinking coffee or having beverages here and there, you would appreciate some refreshing hiking, wouldn’t you? Then, you have to try the hiking trail of Fira. It is about 5km long and the whole route lasts about 3 hours. It is so rejuvenating and refreshing that it is the first thing many locals do every morning. Isn’t that amazing? Just spare a warm but cloudy morning, wear your trainers and light sports clothes and…go for it. You will love the view to the sea along the path!
RENT A MANSION IN MYKONOS
Since Villas in Mykonos are said to be the best of the best not only in Greece but globally why not renting one to spend your vacation there? Of course, you are not obliged to spend all your holidays on the island yet having hired such a place will be a great solution to the accommodation problem all tourists have been facing lately. Those villas are not like any other ones you may have in mind. Their carefully-chosen locations, the superb friendliness of the staff as well as the VIP services on offer can absolutely transform your visit and take a step or two further.
You must know that they are able of sleeping a maximum of 30+ people per night and almost all of them include a private pool, a jacuzzi, high-tech appliances and endless view to the Aegean Sea. If you are seeking more reasons to make your booking now, please notice that their rates start from only 100€ per person a night! No kidding!
VISIT LEFKES IN PAROS
And there you are on the gorgeous island of Paros. It is believed to be the most stunning village on the isle and one of the most picturesque ones on the whole complex of Cycladic gems. As it becomes more than obvious, it is a place you should visit as soon as possible. Its great alleys and the fantastic view to the local beaches and sea is insurmountable. Once there pay a visit to the local folklore museum as well as the local traditional café of Mrs. Marigo. You will get stunned by the locals’ kindness and hospitality. At the end of the day, that is one the Greeks’ virtues, isn’t it?
