This summer’s adventures ended with the best possible way: a 3 nights stay at Grace hotel in Mykonos island!

This intimate, exclusive boutique hotel is located just north of Mykonos town above the sandy and protected beach of Agios Stefanos.

ONAR IN PATMOS ISLAND

ONAR IN PATMOS ISLAND

At the end of June, we had the pleasure of staying and photographing Onar in Patmos island, a resort hotel named after the Greek word for dream. 

ONAR IN PATMOS ISLAND

Just a few meters away from the shore, close to the fishing village of Grikos, ONAR 1989 is surrounded by a beautiful landscape overlooking the Aegean Sea and the nearby rock of Kalikatsou that emerges from the deep blue waters in an almost unearthly manner. 

ONAR IN PATMOS ISLAND

We stayed at a contemporary stonewall house for two, fused with traditional architectural elements, with a private terrace and a magnificent view to the swimming pool overlooking the sea. 

ONAR IN PATMOS ISLAND

The ideal location for a dream holiday for families, couples or group of friends who are looking for a luxurious and tranquil environment as a base to explore Patmos island from, or to just relax in.

Peace and quiet emanate from every corner of Onar in Patmos island.

Traditional house Langada

Traditional house Langada

We finally made it to Patmos island this summer! We had the chance to spend two amazing nights at the Traditional house Langada and discover the beautiful and peaceful area of upper Kampos. These pictures were taken in the terrace of the Traditional house Langada overlooking Kampos beach.

The traditional house Langada belongs to Nicoletta Houses.

Nicoletta says:

“In 1971, my mother, Dolly Kontogianni, set her foot for the first time at the port of Patmos island. It was love at first sight. She was immediately captivated by the island’s special energy. She soon found a plot in Chora, the island’s medieval capital, where she was planning to build a typical Chora mansion. Dolly was a restless spirit and loved houses! She never stopped exploring the island’s houses and plots until she discovered the 40-acre estate “Langada”.

There was a farmhouse in ruinous condition, which had developed during the centuries, around a small chapel and a central patio. As it can be read on the chapel’s lintel, it was built in 1698. It is said that the chapel and the room next to it had been used by generations of monks of the St John monastery, who wished to lead an ascetic mode of life and cultivate the land. The estate belonged to 30 heirs. As you can imagine, the buying process was very complicated.

Dolly finally managed to acquire the property in 1973. She slowly started restoring the house, strictly following the traditional building techniques and architectural style. She was fully dedicated in this project which lasted 5 years. Since then, we have spent numerous summer and easter holidays with friends and family.”

We are currently going through the third, maybe fourth, fifth (oh,I’ve lost the count) lockdown in Vienna. I had photos in my hard drives that were waiting for me to edit them. I don’t know why I kept them for so long there. Last night I decided to have a look on what is left unedited and to finally go though the process: edit, select and publish! The shops in Vienna will open next Monday and I can’t wait to buy an external Hard Drive because those I have are all full!

It was 2018 when we visited Blue Sand boutique Hotel and Suites in Folegandros for the first time. You can see my blog post from that first visit here. Two years passed by. We felt an urge to go back, so this September we did.

Back to Blue Sand

Blue Sand boutique Hotel and Suites never stop to surprise us and never fail to meet our greatest expectations! Although it was our second visit, there were new things to explore and new memories to be made. For instance, one day during our stay, the team of the hotel organized a private boat tour for us. We swam in crystal clear waters and explored countless secret coves and beaches that were only accessible by boat. The yacht can be privately chartered for a day or half day, so consider this activity if you plan to visit Folegandros island.

One night we stayed at the luxury Bohemian villa of Blue Sand. It is called Makarias villa and it is located in the more quiet area of Ano Meria. This villa is perfect for those who would like some more privacy when staying in Folegandros, combined with great rustic Folegandros design and beautiful views.

Despite the global pandemic that has affected the tourism industry severely, and despite the fact that it was September (low season for Greek summer), Blue Sand was fully booked, which is a proof of how amazing this place is and what good work Katerina and her team do at Blue Sand.

At Blue Sand you can have everything that your heart desires for a perfect holiday and a real escape from the routine: relaxation and adventure, exclusivity and privacy, aesthetics, fashion and design, landscape and fantastic cuisine, the sea and the sun.
