Tharroe of Mykonos

On our final night in Mykonos, we decided that we wanted to do something rather special. Instead of taking our usual trip down to the Old Port and using our fail-safe tactic of stumbling across a restaurant that looked up our street (after finally succumbing to the hunger), we booked a dinner reservation at the Tharroe of Mykonos hotel – renowned for its panoramic views of the Aegean Sea, Windmills and Town Centre. We’d heard on the grapevine that the sunset was absolutely incredible when viewed from their position, on the very top of a small hill, so we couldn’t…

Guide To Mykonos

With its white-washed buildings, bright blue sea and winding, whirling streets littered with designer boutiques, Mykonos has always been on my bucket list. And so I was delighted when I finally had a trip booked last month, exploring all that the Grecian island had to offer over five days – eagerly anticipating the Instagram friendly pictures that were to follow. Although it has enough to offer even the most seasoned traveller for at least a week’s worth of exploration, Mykonos isn’t actually that big of an island – which makes it very accessible and easy to get around.

Kalo Livadi, Mykonos

When you’re flying over Mykonos, it doesn’t look that big. And in reality, it’s not. It’s only about 15km wide and you can pretty much get anywhere on the island in under 20 minutes by car. However, there are distinct differences between the tiny villages and areas, depending on what sort of thing you’re looking for. Kalo Livadi is on the South East coast of the island and hosts the longest beach in Mykonos, popular for parties during the peak months. It was also the home to the hotel we were staying – The Archipelagos, so for this reason, we spent…

15 Reasons to visit Agios Nikolaos, Crete!

A couple of months ago, my friend Danielle and I were on the search for the perfect girly getaway. We knew we wanted a bit of liveliness but also a touch of luxury. And of course, there had to be plenty of great food available because we both love eating out. So after a bit of researching, we came across the apparent perfect destination – Crete. Greece’s largest island, known for its varied terrain (there’s lots of gorgeous white sandy beaches, but there’s also a lot of rocky cliff-faces, mountains and caves), Crete offers something for everyone in terms of…

Twr Y Felin, Pembrokeshire

After spending our first night in Pembrokeshire in a stunning castle (post here), we figured our trip could only get better from there on in. The reason for our visit to the area was actually to celebrate the launch of the new Twr Y Felin Hotel in St Davids, which has the same ownership as Roch Castle, so from the offset we had very high expectations. We threw all of our belongings into a case and drove along the coast to reach our new home for the night. And what a beautiful home it was. Like something out of a Disney…
