Mykonos is the most famous island in the Cyclades. Its re-putation has spread during the last years due to its unique lan-dscape, its archeological sites, its cosmopolitan environment and its magnificent seas. Mykonos is an island that is full of contradictions. The contradicting elements that are apparent in this small stretch of land, give the island a distinct eccentricity.

Mykonos is composed of two shades: the summer and winter shade. Its summer shade appears to be flashy and wild. The summer sounds are even different, even a loud buzz has something wild, something out of this world to it.
During the winter Mykonos is authentic. It is the Mykonos of the good old days. Everything changes, the rhythm lowers and the lights turn off.
Whoever experiences a winter in Mykonos, will love and appreciate it, because they will have the chance to realize that is it a place full of character.
n spite of all these things Mykonos is distinctly different both in summer and winter. The only thing that changes is the scenery. It has charmed many anonymous and famous travelers that have written many valuable descriptions of the island. Nikos Kazantzakis even wrote in Toledo that, " Jerusalem, Mykonos, and Moscow are the three cities that amazed him ".
Mykonos is 94 naval miles southeast of Piraeus, with an area of 83 sq.klms and about 80 klms of coastal line.
