Thus, it was expected that I would refuse to join the ...

A lighthouse called Armenistis

Once upon a time there was a <strong>lighthouse</strong> called Armenistis. The truth is that usually the lighthouses in my mind are combined with a sense of melancholy...It is perhaps because of the solitary and usually remote location. Or maybe that in most movies are accompanied by sad stories and nostalgic notes...who knows... I have come across a few lighthouses so far, mainly on our trips to...

Melomakarona, the taste of Christmas

The birth of Jesus Christ, the Christmas manger, the Christmas tree, the school events, the angels, the three wise men obviously attracted the most attention, but above all the sweet anticipation of Santa Claus. When does he visit your home? On Christmas or New Year’s Eve? And all these ‘were sprinkled’ with plenty of icing sugar, honey and walnuts in every bite of the most traditional Greek Ch...

The ‘art de la table’

When I first heard the phrase <em>art de la table</em> years ago, I tried to figure out what it means.. to which type of art does it refer to? And how is this related to the food taste? And what does it happen when the style outweighs the food experience? As a lover of aesthetics , I realized that <em>art de la table</em> is a purely personal stylistic affair that conforms to specific serving r... traditions of Mykonos 15

Little churches around Mykonos

It has been fourteen years now in Mykonos, and I still remember myself wondering about these numerous, little churches around the island. Therefore, it makes sense why you have been asking me about how many churches there are on the island. There should be around 1500 and even more. <img class="alignnone wp-image-2295" src="ξωκλήσσια-4-...

Spring & Easter on the island

Spring is finally here... Spring and Easter days mean a lot to me and I am glad that Easter preparation has been part of Aether Boutique hotel over the last ten years. For one more year, things are moving slowly, so our need to spend some time outside is growing. The fields are becoming greener and greener, the flowers are starting to blossom, the water is turning blue…we are seeking the ...
