Sunset in Santorini

If you don't see the sun sink into the sea colouring the white houses of Oia or Fira pink, you can't understand why all travellers of this volcanic island applause with enthusiasm. It is a picture that neither photos nor words can describe.


Sunrise in Mykonos

In Mykonos, the night starts after sunrise. What do we mean? That no one sleeps before the dawn. Pick a club in Mykonos Chora or on a beach, dance and drink until late at night and feel the magical feeling of seeing the sun rising when you are in the perfect mood after a wild night of fun and flirt.


The view of Keros in Koufonisi

Koufonisi has a breathtaking view of the neighbouring island of Keros, a legendary islet with innumerable archaeological treasures of the Cycladic Neolithic civilisation. It is prohibited to reach Keros by boat, so the only thing you can do is to enjoy this view from your seaside room to let in Koufonisi. There is no better view to watch when eating breakfast and imagining the secret life of this uninhabited island.


Beach hopping in Milos

In Cyclades, you can't decide which island to visit. In Milos, you can't decide which beach to visit. Thus, you can spend the whole day going from one beach to another. Still, you can't make it to sunbathe on all the 75 stunning beaches of the island. It doesn't matter. Even if you see only 5 of them, it is enough to understand the beauty of Milos' coastline.

Rakomelo in Folegandros

Rakomelo is warm raki with honey and herbs. You can taste this strong alcoholic beverage in most Greek islands, but in Folegandros the whole aura gives rakomelo a unique taste. In the middle of Chora's lovely square, surrounded by whitewashed houses with pink bougainvilleas hanging from the balconies, the traditional cafés serve rakomelo and mezedes in a cozy, typically Cycladic atmosphere.

Pigeon houses in Tinos

Tinos is the island of the artists. Marble sculptures decorate the squares of Tinos' picturesque villages, and in Pyrgos, you can visit the Museum of Sculpture. But there is also another plus in Tinos. When driving or hiking around the island, you can see in the middle of nowhere well-preserved pigeon houses that look like a jewel in the dry nature.
