Island hopping in the Cyclades

Thursday, 03 June 2021

When you think about island hopping there is no better place than the Cyclades. A chain of charming islands with picturesque alleys and towns, each one with its own beauty and within a short distance to each other, is the best way to make the most out of your summer holiday in Greece.

That is why we have made a unique combination of a luxury cruise around the Cyclades with a stay at some of our exclusive properties on popular islands. So pack your things and hop on for a luxury yacht cruise around the Aegean.

First stop: Mykonos (4 nights)

The paragon of lifestyle and glamorous beach parties with worldwide known beach bars like Scorpios and Nammos and sandy beaches with crystal-clear waters such as Paradise and Psarou, Mykonos is on top of the list! To make sure you’ll experience everything the island has to offer, there is a 4-night stay at a luxury villa nearby the island’s hotspots. Grab a refreshing at a restaurant in Little Venice overlooking the Aegean Sea, stroll around the narrow alleys of the island’s town, or visit the hillside windmills; there is always something new to experience!

Our cruise continues with a stop in Paros! A popular island surrounded by nature and with a variety of beautiful sandy beaches to relax or do some watersports. The small town of Naoussa is a fine example of Cycladic architecture with stone-paved roads and white and blue houses. Don’t forget to visit the historical village of Lefkes and the Valley of Butterflies, a verdant spot full of graceful trees that attract butterflies, creating a truly breathtaking natural phenomenon. Make a stop in Antiparos – a small island merely 10 minutes away by ferry from Paros - for a quick dive into emerald waters.
