Tinos island and….honey

Looking at the view from<strong> Ariston</strong> every morning, where the blue of the Aegean always enchants, one can see a hill that looms without being able to distinguish* whether it belongs to <strong>Mykonos</strong> or another island.This island is called Tinos and is located a stone's throw away from <strong>Mykonos </strong>(about 15 minutes by boat). <img class="alignnone wp-image-24...

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

Earrings of Mykonos

A jewel constitutes an important part of every civilization and is the reason why we admire lots of them in the museums. The Cycladic civilization was amongst the first three civilizations in ancient time. Delos is always the living proof and a visit to this special island will convince you upon your arrival there. Archeologists are able to collect important information regarding the lifestyle ...

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-...

Feta cheese is…

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 ...

Mastiha the gem of Greece

If I was asked what the main characteristics of my country are, I would definitely say the white and blue colours, but above all the unique flavours, such as of mastiha. As far as I remember myself, one of my most pleasant moments in my childhood was when I tasted mastiha in a piece of cake, in a meal, or even in a chewing gum. Thus, in Aether boutique, I always make sure that my guests are giv...

‘Chorio means tradition, home, family’

One of my pleasures is to get out of the house, any time in the day or night, and drive away with good music, a good company (Athanassios is always a good idea) and definitely without having a destination in mind. Since I moved to Mykonos these long rides—as Mykonos is a small island*— constitute a pleasant journey for me, an oasis of beauty. I absolutely prefer rides in daylight, enjoying t...

‘a cup of Greek coffee, please’

'Athina, what kind of coffee is Greek?' A typical question i hear in Ariston, our eatery inside our small hotel, every summer, during breakfast time. After this first try of a Greek coffee, not only does it become your first preference, but you also choose to enjoy it in a big cup. Let's take it from the beginning.... Greek Coffee is the same grind setting as Turkish, Armenian or Cypri...

The beauty of almond

Whose eyes have not been enchanted with the beauty of a blossomed almond tree? Those little rosy petals rejuvenate us after a long, deep winter sleep. It has always been a surprise for me to come across an almond tree but this year was almost like a need especially because of the pandemic and the affects. Driving from home to the village of Ano Mera in <strong>Mykonos</strong> to pick up my dau...
