Bill&Coo Suites and Lounge

It was Edisa’s birthday and she wanted to do something special. I told her that I would be in Greece for a press trip organised by the Greek National Tourism Organization. But I could extend my stay in my homeland if she wanted to come and find me in Greece. I suggested that we could go to Mykonos. And this is how our little adventure started…

Skiathos – Athens – Mykonos 

I flew from Skiathos to Athens and from Athens to Mykonos. I hate morning flights that forces my bell to ring at 05.00 am but on the other side, who cares if you are about to spend a couple of days at Bill&Coo Suites and Lounge in Mykonos with the company of a good friend?

Once I arrived, a member of the staff picked me up from the airport with a white Jeep with beige leather interior and offered me a hot towel to clean my hands. I still remember some details of the service, small gestures like this, provided by the hotel that made our stay at Bill&Coo Suites and Lounge special, unique and above all unforgettable.

When I stepped in, I was offered a welcome drink and another member of the staff came to me with a map explaining some things about the island. Once I entered Bill&Coo Suites and Lounge, the first glance at the breathtaking view over swimming pool, beach, and all this romantic oasis that surrounded me had me thinking….

Why haven’t I discovered that place earlier? It was time for me to breathe easily and unwind. Edisa came on another flight a few hours later.

In the days that followed, we did all kind of things that belong to what someone would call as dreamy holidays. We relaxed in a 5 star Mykonian suite, savored amazing Greek food, took many photos, did funny things, made new friends, talked to strangers, and discovered hidden paths in the city of Mykonos. But most of all we were pampered from the hotel and felt like two small princesses.

What I really loved during our stay

What I really really loved from our stay at Bill&Coo Suites and Lounge was that the staff surprised us pleasantly every now and then. The staff was very generous and friendly to all the guests. I loved the privacy of our suite, the dinner from the restaurant’s Chef, Athinagoras Kostakos (could he cook like this for me everyday…?), and the music from the bar was out of this world!

It felt like everything was unfolding very naturally and effortlessly. We didn’t have to worry about anything, we were in good hands.

But then comes that day when you have to leave a place you don’t want to leave. Hmm… Hopefully we will get back soon to discover their beach club “Bill & Coo Coast Suites” that Bill&Coo Suites and Lounge launched to celebrate their 10 years anniversary.

The last weekend of October I found myself in Athens. Much earlier than expected thanks to #theathensworld team who invited me to celebrate the World Cities Day together with them and many other Instagrammers.

Long weekend in Athens: The best tips 

We kicked off the next day with a visit at The Museum of Cycladic Art. Afterwards, we walked around the city center and headed to the area of Plaka where several street events and celebrations of all kinds were happening at different spots around the city center.

48 hours in Athens

The weekend in Athens was just awesome, although the weather could have been a little bit warmer. Nevertheless I had a great time, I made new friends, ate the best food and gave a small interview to MTV Greece.

Sunday was a free day. I had the chance to see friends and family again.

Highlight of the trip to Athens 

Highlight of the whole trip was the taxi driver who picked me up from the airport. Mr. Stavros is  exactly the person you want to wait for you in the airport! He was very kind and had nice stories to tell.

He even brought the previous guests to the Lykabettus, after they landed in Athens, so that they can get a first impression of the capital from above, although he didn’t have to.

What a warm welcome in the city of Athens. That is what we call… the Greek Hospitality.

Holidays in Crete

Holidays in Crete

Crete has never been my favourite Greek island. What I never liked about it is that Crete is a big island. In Crete you simply lose the sense of being on an island. I guess, I am more a small island type of person.

But Crete island has a lot to offer. Culture, sightseeing attractions, sandy beaches, scenic countryside. Plus, it has two international convenient airports (Chania and Heraklio) where you can find the best flight connections to many European cities.

My friend’s wedding though was a very good reason to visit Crete once again, the last weekend of August. I am glad that I had the chance to spend my holidays in Crete one more time, to discover this island with a different point of view, as the more we travel, the better traveler we become, we learn to appreciate things differently and we mature through this process.

My best Chania travel tips: 

• Go to Pallas for breakfast.

• Visit Sketi Glika for something sweet.

• For exciting views over Chania go to Koukouvaya.

• For dinner and the best traditional Cretan Ntako go to Mesostrato.

Crete is undoubtedly beautiful. Remember that you need time and a car to discover its beauties. Oh my gosh, how nice it would be to be there right now!

During my holidays in Samos I visited Proteas Blu resort. As I am a sucker for travel photography and hotels interior design, I couldn’t help but taking pictures of such a dreamy resort for The Viennese Girl blog. Everything in this luxury resort was peaceful, relaxing and purely elegant. Everything was screaming SUMMER and I was totally in my mediterranean element.

Now back to Vienna, I look out of the window of my little room, and there is neither sea nor blue skies on the horizon…

But am grateful for the good time spent in Proteas Blu Resort. It was so fun taking these photos and wish that I will get the chance to get back there soon in the near future. #seayousoon
