The traditional Mykonian apartments "Alexandros Mykonos" were the right choice for us, traveling to the island for the first time, and desiring to explore it inside out. That's because the location of the apartments is between the capital of Mykonos, Hora, and the most significant town, Ano Mera (or, "Ano Meria"), and is extremely convenient to go from there to every destination on the island. The location is in a quiet residential area, relatively away from the sea (about a mile), and doesn't offer a spectacular view to any beach or hilltop, but the apartments themselves are unbelievably beautiful, and compensate fully for the lack of any view around them. They resemble a traditional village of the island, an ideal one though, as no true village was as nice as them. They were created on different levels of a rather small private property, but the owner/decorator/artisan/builder of them, Mr Alexandros, crafted and decorated them using his very special, nice and authentic taste, and added small details that can really make the difference. The owner and his wife, Mrs Katerina, were also very hospitable, and helped us locate the best and the cheapest restaurants of the island, the least known (and more interesting) beaches, some nice places to take photos, as well as some secrets of the island usually known only to the locals. Their help to their guests seemed to extend to the point of showing them, on a small fee, some special places themselves, in their own mini-van, when the guests didn't have a car or a bike rented to explore the island themselves. The normal use of the mini-van is of course to carry the guests from the port or the airport to the apartments, and vice versa. The apartments and the whole complex were immaculately clean and tidy too, and this fact, along with the exceptional hospitality of the owners, were giving us the feel of "home" (every night, after having spent the day wandering around the island, we used to say: "let's go home now"). We also got the feeling of having attained the best "value for money" ratio imaginable for an island such as Mykonos, and we were happy about that too. To sum up our report, staying in those apartments, and being hosted by Alexandros and Katerina, will always be a very nice memory for us, and we are truly looking forward to visit them again in the near future.
