Holiday Rentals & Accommodation in Mykonos

Wimdu villa in Mykonos The capital of Mykonos is one of the most cosmopolitan holiday resorts in all of Europe. Holidaymakers, backpackers and celebrities alike have been coming to the island for years. Mykonos is part of the Cyclades group of Greek islands, along with sister island, and competing holiday destination, Santorini. Pure white buildings, sandy beaches, Mykonos is where simplicity meets glamour - it is considered to be quite the paradise location.


Whether you’re after a party holiday or just a relaxing stay somewhere warm, Mykonos is the perfect place to soak in the sun, explore some beautiful scenery and learn about the island’s rich history. According to mythology, instead of being formed by a volcanic eruption, Mykonos was supposedly formed from the terrified bodies of giants killed by Hercules. The first known settlers on the island were the Ionians, who arrived in 9th Century BC. In 1980, the island was liberated and began to thrive again from tourism.

Where to Stay

Wimdu offers a great selection of accommodation on the island of Mykonos, from seafront villas to private apartment rentals to suit all budgets and tastes. Despite its size, it is possible to find some really great accommodation on Mykonos. To avoid the expense and commercialism associated with hotels, we recommend staying in one of the private villas rented out by the locals. This will give you more privacy, more comfort and a more authentic experience of the island, helping you to get the most out of your stay.

Things to see and do

There is a lot to see and do on Mykonos. The island is full of archaeological sites that are well worth a visit, along with the Folklore and Maritime Museums, the perfect places to soak in the culture of the island. Next you might want to stop off at the magnificent castle situated above the harbour. If you’re not really interested in exploring the island’s history, just taking a stroll around the narrow marble streets to take in what the island has to offer .


There is a good selection of restaurants and bars on the island of Mykonos. While the range of food is international in spectrum, the pepper flavoured Kopanisti is the island’s signature dish: a soft cheese seasoned with pepper. Most restaurants will serve it and it is highly recommended you try it during your stay. If you prefer meat to cheese there is a sausage version of the dish: sausage sprinkled with pepper, or you can opt for the pork steak seasoned with fresh local spices. The prices are fairly reasonable on the island, but if you don’t fancy eating out, staying in a self-catering villa allows you to create your own dining experience at home, using fresh local produce.

Getting Around

You can get to Mykonos by ferry from Athens, or by air into the Mykonos International Airport. You can explore the island by car or for the more eco friendly option, bicycles can be rented very cheaply around this area, as well as being a great way to discover the island with a breeze in your hair. There are only 31 taxis on the whole of the island so if you want to travel by taxi, you should probably book in advance.
