Questions to ask yourself before booking a villa in Mykonos

A Mykonos villa vacation is a dream that many people from all over the world share and one that thousands of people make true each summer. Mykonos villas are known all over the world for their extravagant luxury and their uniqueness since they are designed in a way that allows them to be modern while blending in with the traditional design of the island’s iconic little houses. Those are the main reasons why billionaires and stars from all over the world stay in those villas for their summer vacation and why in turn people wanting to get a taste of the good life dream of spending a few days there.

Thanks to the numerous property management agencies operating on the island, finding the right Mykonos villa is no longer a difficult task, provided of course that one starts to look early because the closer summer gets, the higher the demand for villas. There are however some things that one should ask themselves before actually booking a villa. Let’s see what they are!  

Did I read the fine print?

Booking a villa is essentially like signing a contract and contracts tend to have “hidden” terms and conditions, the so called fine print. Take your time and read carefully all literature accompanying your booking. Make sure that you understand what’s included in the price and what’s not and what you can and can’t do while in the property. Remember that you can’t take back the agreement without losing your deposit or part of it, so make sure that you are absolutely fine with every term.

Is the villa big enough?

Villas are big, that’s their whole raison d’être, however, they might just not be big enough for you and your party. Since it’s rather difficult to book a villa by yourself because of the daily rates, luxury vacationers tend to share the property with some of their friends in order to split the costs. Chances are that you won’t be staying in a villa alone, so you need to be sure that it is big enough for you and your friends before booking one.

Do I need any extra services?

If you think that you might need some extra services such as a chef or a butler to be present in the property during your stay, you need to make up your mind before agreeing to book the villa. This way you’ll get a better impression of the extra costs.

Three simple tips for the perfect honeymoon in Greece

A wedding is a unique and very special occasion for anyone’s life, since it is something that will only happen once. The honeymoon trip is an essential part of the whole wedding experience since it’s the time when the couple will truly get to celebrate their union, alone. As you can probably tell, a honeymoon trip needs to eb as fun and memorable as possible, which is why for a lot of couples, it’s one of the most important aspects of their wedding. As far as making any trip memorable goes, the secret is to pick the right destination.

Greece is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in the world, the reason for that is quite simple: it is a country of great natural beauty and rich cultural history and heritage. It may not be as exotic a destination as the Maldives or Thailand, but Greece’s beaches and islands are famous all over the world for their unique atmosphere and amazingly gorgeous beaches. So, if you too are considering a honeymoon in Greece, here’s how you can have the perfect experience.

Pick the right destination

Like we said earlier, the islands of the Aegean Sea are easily among the most popular tourist and honeymoon destinations in the world. What makes them so special, is the fact that each island has its own “personality” which makes it better suited to a certain type of visitor. For example, the island of Mykonos is known for its extravagant nightlife and luxurious hotels and villas. It is the perfect destination for people looking to party and mingle with celebrities, but it’s a bad choice for people looking to relax. This means that just because a certain island is popular, this doesn’t make it ideal for your honeymoon. Do your research and pick the right island for you. Pro-Tip: Santorini and Rhodes are safe bets since they are scenic and are also known for their nightlife.

Tour the islands

A lot of honeymooners just choose an island and stay there for the duration of their stay in Greece, while not necessarily a mistake – again, a honeymoon trip is all about what the couple wants – it’s admittedly not the best way to spend your time in Greece. Like we said above, pretty much all Greek islands are unique. They are also clustered really close together and they are relatively small. This makes island-hopping easy and it’s the best way to experience Greece. So, if you are going to stay in Greece, we strongly suggest that you embark on a short cruise of the islands in the Aegean Sea or that you plan your itinerary so that you can stay for a couple of days on different islands.

Visit during late spring or early autumn

This is perhaps the most useful tip, since your experience during your honeymoon in Greece will vary depending on the season if your visit. The summer months, and especially July and August, are the busiest in Greece and it can be hard to book a hotel during that time. It also goes without saying that hotel rates and fares will be very expensive, also, the islands will be very crowded. If you are on a tight budget or if you like to spend your vacation far from the maddening crowds, then summer is NOT the best time to visit Greece. The only upside to visiting Greece during the summer is the sunny and warm weather. However, the weather in Greece during the months of May, June and September is almost always excellent and since the high tourist season hasn’t started yet, things are less crowded and hotel rates and fares are far more reasonable, making it the perfect time for a honeymoon trip!
