Why Stay At Villa Galaxy
If you've ever stayed within the cramped maze that is Mykonos town, then you'll rejoice at these four luxury vacation villas near the small village of Ftelia. Splayed out on a sweeping hillside, the property offers plenty of space so the handful of guests feel like they each have the place to themselves.
You may think that every square inch of Mykonos has been overdeveloped one way or another, but head to the secluded area of Ftelia at the southern end of Panormos Bay, and you'll finally find the spacious views of the isle and ocean that the postcards promise. Making good use of the famous Greek sunshine and the Cycladic views is the Villa Galaxy, which consists of four luxury suites that feel like old traditional homes (aptly named Sun, Star, Sky and Moon)—albeit with Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, and satellite TV. Wooden beamed ceilings, whitewashed walls, marble bathrooms, fully equipped kitchens, unique antiques, and roomy sitting and living areas make each villa feel like someone's actual home. (With five acres to share, the villas have enough room to ensure privacy.) A shaded meditation area with views and a Buddha statue and a pool accented with a Greek pillar complete the setting. While there, a discreet staff helps book activities and restaurant reservations; you can arrange your stay to be as independent or hand-holding as you like—a personal butler, chef, and masseuse are on hand (but must be pre-arranged) should the need arise. Plus, the villas are a stone's throw from the beach, and the pumping nightlife of Mykonos town is just 10 minutes away.
Although the on-site concierge may push car rentals, a motor scooter is the way to go. The island is small enough to see by moped in one beach-hopping day.
If you're into views (and that's a big part of the appeal of Villa Galaxy), the House of the Star provides the best panoramas of the sea.
Arrive at Mykonos Airport (JMK), which is approximately 5 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 15 minutes of travel time.Lemonitra, Ftelia, Mykonos, Cyclades, Greece

Why We Love Mykonos
Traditional Cycladic architecture infused with the energy of a modern merry-making crowd. All glistening beneath a Greek sun. Delicious.
Walk This Block: Little Venice. This is the best neighborhood in which to grab an ouzo and watch the island's legendary sunsets. Veranda restaurant, with its spacious wooden decks and genteel atmosphere, has by far the best atmosphere.
Best Beach: Super Paradise Beach. Many sun worshippers chose to go nude or topless on Mykonos's beaches. The is the most famous drawers-dropping spot, though for peace and quiet, head instead to the less crowded Elia Beach.
Dance, Dance, Dance: at Ramrod. Mykonos is renowned for being gay friendly, and for a taste of the wild scene, check out the DJs and drag shows at the upstairs Ramrod nightclub above Manto Square.
