A perfect September escapade at the San Marco villas with private pool in Mykonos
With July and August, the busiest, party packed months of the season, over, the locals and some true Mykonos aficionados know that one of the best times to visit the island of the winds is in September. The weather is still sunny and warm, flights are less expensive, and the hordes of tourists are gone, giving (lucky) visitors the perfect opportunity to make Mykonos theirs. Read on for some tips on how to go about it:
Travel in style:
With less of the crowds present you’ll have a much better opportunity to find luxurious accommodation in some amazing villas with private pool in Mykonos. Just 4 km northwest of the center of town, at the beautiful, serene Houlakia Bay, the San Marco Sunset collection unfolds, blending authenticity and warm hospitality, with privileged location, ambience and grace, to make you feel truly welcomed; in fact that you are a unique guest and not just one more visitor to this world famous, whitewashed Cycladic island. To match different accommodation needs and individual preferences, the San Marco villas with private pool in Mykonos vary in size and design. However, each one of them- from the expansive two bedroom Leto, Artemis and Hera, to Asteria, San Marco’s cozier, one bedroom, open plan villa– boasts magnificent sea vistas, timeless, elegant interiors and opulent, state of the art amenities, as well as their very own swimming pools, in addition to the large shared pool.
This privileged collection of villas with private pool in Mykonos is oriented towards absolute customer satisfaction; and this translates into an unsurpassed range of tailor made services. From the complimentary VIP transfer and the refreshing welcoming with the finest champagne upon arrival, to the personalized health or beauty treatments or the lovingly prepared, gourmet dinner at your private terrace, expect to be blissfully indulged. After all this is how holidays are supposed to be!
Explore abandoned beaches:
September is also a great time to visit some of the quieter beaches: Just below the San Marco villas with private pool in Mykonos, one of the very few pebbly beaches on the island, Houlakia takes its name from the beautiful, smooth stones that cannot be found anywhere else- in fact taking them away from the beach is absolutely forbidden! The best time to go is early in the evening as you’ll get to admire Delos appearing behind while the sun sets in the background.
Absolutely befitting Mykonos; this contemporary shrine of self gratification and indulgence, the “Vanity” exhibition will be hosted at the Archaeological Museum until the end of the month. This is your chance to admire Cycladic jewelry from antiquity through to the modern era, with perhaps the most interesting exhibit being the gold cross of Manto Mavrogenous, the female captain who played an instrumental role in the Mykonian uprising during the Greek revolution.
Mykonos is an experience to be savored preferably many times over in one’s lifetime. But if you had to choose to visit it just once, many would argue that this should be in September. The above is merely a small fragment of the delights of early fall in Mykonos. Come and discover so many more!
