The view from the veranda and the garden is magnificent, as you can enjoy the entire bay of Kalo Livadi, and the open sea of the Aegean at your footstep. At night you can enjoy a drink on the veranda watching the ships go by, and enjoying the starry sky.
THE REASON TO STAY HERE:
For us, relaxing on the terrace over a glass of ouzo is simply heaven... and we want you to experience it too!
The house is located a short 15min drive from Mykonos Town, so a private transportation method is recommended (car, motorbike, or bicycle for the more adventurous travelers). Accessing nearby beaches and exploring the island can become cumbersome when relying to public transportation, and taxi service can be limited during the busy summer months.
The area is perfect for those looking for a relaxing vacation with easy access to beaches.
Kalo Livadi beach, one of the largest and most beautiful beaches of the island, is just a 5-10mins walk away, while the real gem of a beach is just a short 1 minute walk away - Loulos beach - known mostly by the locals and one of the best hideaways on a windy day (you'll appreciate it when you need it!!!!)
The windsurfer's paradise - Kalafatis beach - is also located only a 15 min walk away, next to the picturest fishing village of Ayia Anna.
All beaches are within a 15 min drive radius.
A mini-market for the absolute essential supplies is located just a 10 min walk away near Kalafatis & Ayia Anna.
The town of Ano Mera is only a 10 minute drive away, where you will be able to find almost everything you wish, from groceries, vegetables, traditional bakeries, to a pharmacy and even a fishing supplies store!
Mykonos town is a 15-20min drive away, close enough when you need the town buzz, yet far when you don't!
Your shopping experience in Mykonos Town can include your typical tourist souvenir shops, to the ultimate haute couture experience, all within the labyrinth of the traditional mykonian streets.
Kalo Livadi beach is home to two beach bars / restaurants open all day for drinks, lunch, dinner, cocktails by the beach, anytime of the day.
Kalafatis beach is also home to several restaurants and tavernas, whereas Ayia Anna is famous for a traditional and picturesque fish tavern.
In Ano Mera and Mykonos Town you can of course find anything you wish, and more.
Local bus service runs from Mykonos Town to Kalafatis, and the nearest bus stop is less than a minute away. Service schedules vary throughout the year.
You can catch a taxi from the airport, the port, or from Mykonos Town, but they can be hard to find on a busy day or night. From the house, you will have to call for a taxi to pick you up.
If you plan on exploring the different beaches and areas of the island, we recommend you rent a car or motorbike.
