Bed and Breakfast & Apartment in Mykonos
Visitors to the Greek island of Mykonos are drawn to its capital by its reputation as one of the most cosmopolitan holiday resorts in Europe. Celebrities, backpackers and B&B tourists flock to the island, which is set within the Cyclades group of Greek islands. Mykonos is accessible via ferry from Athens or by air into the international airport situated on the island. With its bleached white buildings and sandy beaches the island offers great hotel, hostel, bed & breakfast, and apartment options. Tourists can explore the island by car, or for the more eco-friendly traveller cheap bike hire is available. Top attractions include the 16th-century windmills, a sign of the island’s sea-trading past, and Little Venice, where the western part of Mykonos town meets the sea and its buildings hang over the water’s edge.
Bed and breakfast by the sea
Mykonos has accommodation to suit all budgets. For those looking to blow the bank, a choice of luxury hotels, often with panoramic views of the landscape, are dotted around the island. Mid-range accommodation options, such as smaller hotels that offer bed & breakfast by the sea, are easily found. Hostels and campsites are available for those who are happy to bed down under the stars and eat breakfast as the sun comes up.
Rent a Greek apartment
For those who want to escape the hordes of tourists, another option is available. What if you could rent your very own apartment for a reasonable price? And what if that apartment had its own character and all the comforts of home, alongside your very own local to introduce you to the island? Through the website Wimdu it is now possible to rent a privately owned apartment in Mykonos and many other places all over the globe. On Wimdu you can read reviews of apartments on offer and organise your stay with a host from your destination city. Stay a night or a week – it’s totally up to you, and with this experience you can travel like a local.
