Learn the lay of the land and simple pleasures from farmers who know the terrain of the island like the back of their hand. Set your internal clock to relaxation mode with private wine tasting with a Myconian sommelier or a cooking class at the chef’s table. Gain a unique perspective from the sky by helicopter and discover the wonders of the sea in the pure luxury of a private yacht.
Set out on a journey to discover a fascinating world where glamour meets simplicity with the Myconian Collection and leave Mykonos as a true ‘nisiotis’ (Greek: local islander).By Land
Embark on a journey exploring both the infamous and lesser-known beaches of Mykonos. Be led inland with a private guide to hidden areas of Mykonos that most visitors never get the opportunity to visit and explore a traditional farmhouse which locals have lovingly restored.
A shoppers paradise, lined with world-class restaurants and boasting an exciting nightlife scene, there is so much to be said of Mykonos Town’s history. Uncover the secrets of the ‘chora’ and centuries of rich history with a private guide from the windmills, Little Venice and Paraportiani Church. Stroll through the whitewashed maze, become familiar with the labyrinth of windswept streets whilst meeting the baker, the mosaic-maker and experiencing the local taverna that serves a workers’ lunch.
After discovering the marvels of the island by land, guests can take a trip on the crystal-clear turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea on a private yacht. Set sail for the unspoiled and uninhabited island of Rhenia; a hidden gem only known to the locals. Reach the island which is only accessible by yacht and swim and snorkel in its pristine waters. Guests can return on board to be met with a Mediterranean-style buffet with a variety of Greek delicacies and local Greek wines.
Take a leap back in time and visit the archaeological island of Delos; a jewel of the Ancient World that is more than 2100 years old. As the sun begins to set over its marble ruins, guests will be guided around the island, which has been proclaimed a UNESCO World heritage site, to view the magnificent ongoing archaeological dig covered with the ruins of an ancient city. With an experienced guide, guests will learn about the birthplace of two of the most important ancient Greek Gods, about the world trade, power and religions which once converged on that very spot, and the downfall that led to it being uninhabited for over thirteen centuries.
Once guests have explored the lands and seas around Mykonos, only one dimension remains to be conquered; the sky. Myconian Collection can arrange for guests to see Mykonos from the sky in a private helicopter. Tour over the amazing blue expanse of the Aegean Sea and the neighbouring islands and view the Cyclades from a perspective to which not even the locals are privy. Fly over the brown and barren island punctuated by its white cubist buildings and out over Delos and Rhenia towards Tinos, Paros and Naxos which, although only a few nautical miles from one another, have their own unique character.
