Our latest villa addition is the large but perfectly positioned Villa Prima on the island of Mykonos. It sleeps as many as 20 persons across 11 bedrooms, meaning you either need a lot of friends or possibly might select this villa for a multi generational stay (to you and me, that means taking the kids and the grandparents)!
There are gorgeous sea views – a proper wow factor of the property – but we particularly like the proximity of the nearby beaches (Loulos and Kalo Livadi).
The price tag gives an indication of the quality, but no one said luxury comes cheaply. A week in August is £39,996.
Mykonos is a vibrant, cosmopolitan island – well known for its nightlife. In the heart of the Cyclades, legend has it that the island was formed from the petrified bodies of giants slain by Hercules, whilst the name itself is rumoured to be that of the grandson of Apollo.
Our favourite pastimes (getting back to the fun part) are dominated by watersports. There are plenty of beaches to windsurf from and if you aren’t a pro, there are lessons available, sea parachuting and jet skiing are also options. If you are a little more Jacques Cousteau, there are plenty of dive centres (some also offer snorkelling lessons); September is one of the best months when visibility is good at seabed level.
The island also has plenty of secluded coves; why not hire a boat and go exploring? For the intrepid seafarer is the isle of Delos – a short boat trip will bring you to this historic gem where ruins, fine mosaics and temples wait to be explored.
