This beautifully furnished, 2 story town home is situated in the picturesque village of Ornos, approximately a 10-15 minute drive from the village of Mykonos, on the world famous island of Mykonos. The house is the upper 2 floors of a 3 story building, in a complex of about 10 similar buildings.
It is located at the end of the complex - the closest building to the beach and dozens of colorful tavernas! It has the most privacy of any town home in the complex, and is decorated in historical Greek fashion - white walls with blue shutters and trim, and an interior that is extremely fashionable and upscale. There is a large pool at the bottom of the steps leading to the house, available 24 hours a day from May 15th - October 1st every year.
The village and beach of Ornos is a very easy 5-6 minute walk from the house, where you will find white, sandy beaches and a wide assortment of chairs and umbrellas to soak up the sun and enjoy the spectacular blue-green water of the Mediterranean Sea. You can choose from over 12 tavernas - traditional Greek bars and restaurants - for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and enjoy your drinks or food on the beach or inside the taverna.
In a small shopping mall next to the beach, you will find a small convenience store where you can get last minute items, along with newspapers in most languages. There are ATM machines in several locations nearby, and all will usually accept your ATM card, regardless of the country of origination.
In the other direction from the house, you will find a well supplied supermarket about a ten minute walk from the house, next to an incredible bakery always full of freshly baked breads and pastries. A pharmacy is next door to the supermarket, along with a dry cleaner.
A rental car is recommended to get around the island for the most convenience, but bus service is available to most locations. There is a bus stop in the village of Ornos, a 5 minute walk from the house. Taxi cabs are available, but are limited and waiting times may be lengthy. There are numerous car rental car companies on the island, and a rental car can be arranged for your stay. Keep in mind that almost all cars are five-speed and small, which is ideal for the roads of Mykonos! A jeep is always fun to fully enjoy the sun and openness of driving around the island!
I work in the health care profession in the USA, and live in Orlando, Florida, with my wife and son.
I have traveled to Greece many times, and have found it to be a country with very friendly people, excellent food and beautiful scenery. It was natural for me to buy a house in Greece, and Mykonos is an excellent place for fun as well for relaxation.
