All of the holidays we create are completely tailor-made to you

This sample itinerary is intended to give you a flavour of what we can do
Day 1: International Flight

There are several flights a day to Mykonos from the UK, so depending on which one we've booked for you, you will arrive between early afternoon and late evening.

After you've collected your bags, you will be met by one of our team on the ground for a short private transfer to your hotel. Mykonos is known as the 'Ibiza of the Aegean' for a reason, so this evening we recommend speaking to our local Concierge who can recommend some of their favourite places on the island for dining, drinking, and dancing on the island.

Day 2: Delos

This morning, you will wander down to the harbour to meet your boat and guide for a private tour of the sacred Ancient Greek island of Delos.

The tiny island is home to just a handful of people but has more than enough history for an island ten times its size. The sprawling ruins are said to have been the birthplace of the Greek gods Apollo and Artemis, and consequently became a shrine to the gods, a sacred treasury and a thriving commercial centre in ancient times.

The whole island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its blissful peace and quiet make it a wonderful refuge from the bustle of Mykonos (not to mention an excellent balm for any hangover). With your expert guide you will explore the remarkably well-preserved ruins, from the House of Dionysus (appropriately the god of wine) to the fourth century Monument of the Bulls, and hear stories of myths, legends and battles.

When you get back to Mykonos, you will have time to cool off by the pool before a romantic private dinner at sunset.

Day 3: Kayak Tour

After breakfast this morning, you will pick up your lunch and a cool bag of wine from the hotel kitchen and head down to the sea for a private kayak tour around Mykonos.

In a two-person kayak, you will paddle your way around the island past wild vistas, long sandy beaches and deserted coves. At lunch time (or when your arms get tired!), pull in at one of the coves and settle in for a wonderful picnic lunch.

After lunch, and a well-deserved nap, we highly recommend taking a dip in the crystal-clear waters to cool off. When you're ready, hop back into your kayak and paddle back to your hotel.

Day 4: Sunset by Boat

Today is your last day in Mykonos, and we recommend spending it by the pool before exploring the wonderful streets and iconic windmills of the main town.

This evening, you will head out by private boat for a sunset swim and barbecue. Your luxury speedboat will leave the port and head for one of the deserted beaches nearby.

Once you've found your beach, it will be time to strip down to your swimming togs and dive into the crisp emerald waters, while your hosts prepare an al fresco spread. When you're ready to head back, we recommend lying on deck and watching the stars, much like Odysseus would have done.

Day 5: Santorini Bound

After breakfast, you will be privately transferred to the port to catch the three-hour ferry to Santorini.

As you wave goodbye to Mykonos from the sun-deck, or the air-conditioned cabin, you will skirt past Paros and Naxos to the port at Thira.

From here, you will be privately transferred to your villa hotel. After a morning spent at sea, we recommend spending this afternoon soaking up the sun on the beach or by the pool, before your first epic Santorini sunset this evening.

Day 6: Wine Tasting

After breakfast this morning, you will be privately transferred to a local vineyard for a day of wine tastings. After a tour of the vineyards, you will visit the cellars where wine is matured and bottled before settling down for a light lunch and a tasting of the local wine.

Your expert sommelier will explain how the volcanic soil creates a unique terroir, which in turn creates wines which are generally regarded as some of Greece's finest. If you find a bottle you particularly like, let your hosts know and they can arrange for a case to be sent to you at home.

This evening we have arranged a catamaran tour of the caldera (crater rim) which forms the island, which will end at sunset. The giant basin, formed by a volcanic eruption over 3000 years ago, and sunset over the blue domes of Oia are perhaps two of the most iconic sights in Europe, and as you glide across the bay you will be able to soak them up in all their glory.

Day 7: International Flight

Today is sadly your last day in Greece but your flight home isn't until this afternoon, leaving you with plenty of time to enjoy a leisurely breakfast of yoghurt and honey before a private transfer to the airport. Depending on which four-hour flight we've booked for you, you will arrive back in the UK between mid-afternoon and early evening.
