A heaven of chic hotels, trendy island dining, exclusive beach life and a hedonistic nightlife would be hard to keep a secret. Mykonos magnetizes the rich and famous celebrities with its irresistible allure and its array of charms. This insular paradise amidst the blue of the Aegean also constitutes a Mecca of retail therapy boasting international designer boutiques, contemporary jewellery and art galleries.
Mykonos’s magnitude is not something new. The process of its course towards the glorious status it cherishes today, begun in the 1960s when Aristotle Onassis arrived on his yacht with Maria Callas and Jackie O. The international jet set immediately placed it in their list of places to be…the hippest of the Cycladic islands offering, above all, top quality services and somewhere where they would arrive via private luxury yachts and helicopters.

The “island of the winds”, the “Queen of the Cyclades” was, is and indeed will be the place to be seen in. Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren and Brigitte Bardot made it their personal retreat in the 70s adding ounces to the island’s glam factor. What followed was the eternal “waves” of celebrities, from rock-stars to royalty and from actors and filmmakers to models and fashion designers alike…
