Description of Villa Galen

Villa Galen OverviewVilla Galen is stunning, contemporary and striking whilst still embracing the wonderful, traditional chalk-white curvy and honey-coloured stone Mykonian elements seen all around Mykonos. A wonderfully ambient seaside theme flows through the villa, and fabulous first-class furnishings and accessories make your heart sing. The neutral colours are offset by occasional brilliant flashes of colour or texture. It is imaginative and extremely well thought through to ensure you relax and feel pampered and appreciated. The interior and exterior are equally stunning. Be prepared not to want to leave!

Villa Galen LocationThe picturesque Ano Mera village is very close to Villa Galen and cannot be missed. It oozes a rustic-chic vibe throughout the narrow, cobbled streets and whitewashed buildings splashed with vibrant colours. You definitely need to take your camera along as well as your appetite. There are plenty of excellent restaurants and cafes, Sunday brunch being a very popular time to visit. There is a fresh produce market in the main square where you can buy some locally made cheeses. The beautiful restored Panagia Tourlaina Monastery has holy icons, paintings and a marble bell tower with intricate folk carvings for you to enjoy. Ano Mera is a great place to shop, second only to Mykonos Town.
Villa Galen is the largest of a group of four villas on an exclusive, small complex overlooking the stunning turquoise sea and Elia Beach. Kalo Livadi, Kalafatis and Agrari Beaches are also great to visit. The beaches on the north of the island are popular with windsurfers and kitesurfers who want to catch the thrilling wind or visitors seeking solitude and peace. Paradise Beach and Super Paradise Beach are the famous party beaches with bars spilling out into the sand and international DJ’s arriving once the sun has gone down. They are buzzy and vibrant with cocktails and bubbles flowing! Platys Gialos Beach has many watersports. There are number of dive and windsurfing schools that are based on Platys Gialos and Kalafatis Beaches. The water taxi system allows you to jump from beach to beach on the south coast.
Mykonos’ whitewashed, glimmering Grecian gem, the Paraportiani Church is featured widely on postcards. It is just one of the 800 chapels and churches in Mykonos, but Paraportiani is unique and special and is actually comprised of 5 churches. Also featuring on the postcards are the pretty windmills that perch on the hillside above the atmospheric, waterside Little Venice. There are stunning beaches, swanky restaurants, lush hillsides, azure waters and pretty, traditional villages all waiting to be explored on Mykonos. It is not just a party island!
