Mykonos is one of the most popular Greek islands, known for its incredible nightlife, rolling sandy beaches, and delicious local cuisine. Whether you choose to discover the island in your own time or hire a Concierge, there is plenty to do and you will not be disappointed.

Find the Right Accommodation

One of the very first things to do before you set off on your luxury getaway to Mykonos is to plan out your accommodation. There are so many different options to choose from when it comes to accommodation in Mykonos, but if you want to live it up in style, the way to go is to rent a beautiful villa. With Cloud 9 or any other VIP Concierge service you can expect a specifically picked villa based on your inquiries and demands.

Moving to Greece can be an exciting opportunity to experience a new culture, climate, and lifestyle. However, it’s crucial to carefully consider various factors before making the move. Research the visa and residency requirements, learn about the local job market and employment opportunities, and familiarize yourself with the cost of living. Additionally, make sure to learn some basic Greek language skills and understand the healthcare system to ensure a smooth transition. Building a support network and staying open to adapting to the new environment will contribute to a successful relocation experience.

When travelling to Mykonos, whether you are planning ahead, or travelling on a whim, always make sure to book your accommodation beforehand. Mykonos can get incredibly busy especially during peak season, and finding nice accommodation can be difficult if you do not book before you get there.

For the crème de la crème Cloud 9 has always ultra luxurious Private Villas that are not marketed on any booking website.

Choose the Right Time

When you are planning your Mykonos getaway, one of the first things to consider is the time of year that you visit. Mykonos is in Mediterranean territory which means that the weather is lovely year round, however, it specific climate makes it the most pleasurable and so popular summer destination even in the heat of the summer (July, August).

The meltemi winds make Mykonos the perfect hotspot for suntanning but not feeling the heat of the sun. Summer months are peak travel seasons for tourists in Greece and the Greek islands. This means that accommodation, food, and tourist attractions get very expensive and if you are looking for class, VIP parties and networking holiday this island is overcrowded with the world’s wealthiest elite.

Travelling during off peak season is a great option if you have the chance to get some time off. It is still lovely and warm but there are fewer tourists.

Explore the Beaches

Beaches are one of the main attractions of any of the Greek islands. If you find yourself in Mykonos for your getaway vacation, going to the beach is something you cant miss out of.
