Luxury Holidays in Tourlos, Mykonos
Some 2km away from the island capital, Tourlos is a great, peaceful retreat; perfect for those in search of a relaxed resort away from the loudness and craziness of Mykonos Town or Chora. However, its close proximity to the beating heart of the island with the never-sleeping party scene, also makes Tourlos an ideal spot if you need to capture and enjoy both the picturesque settlement of the small village and the glamorous side of the Mykonian lifestyle at the same time.
Set amidst a beautiful natural setting, specked with white-washed houses, Bougainville-filled balconies, and quaint chapels built with the traditional Cycladic architecture that particularly distinguishes the north-western coast of Mykonos, Tourlos is a magical place to be indeed.
Due to the fact that it is close to the New Port, you can admire wonderful sea views and also get the rare opportunity to gaze the luxurious yachts of the A-lists and Hollywood stars that drop anchor by hundreds every summer, as well as traditional caiques some of which feed the island with fresh fish every day. If your holidays are more boat-based, Tourlos is, without a doubt, a lovely option to dock your private yacht or speed boat away from the crowds.
Besides Mykonos Town, some of the most popular beaches and locations nearby include the idyllic village of Ano Mera (and its homonymous beach with the unspoiled beauty), Agios Stefanos beach, Faros beach, and Agios Sostis beach on the opposite side of the island.
Finally, a word of notice. Don’t be surprised if you meet a famous actor, athlete or singer as you walk down the cobblestoned streets of Tourlos. Many celebrities have chosen the village to build luxury villas and accommodations; pretty much like the exclusive holiday residencies with all modern comforts and the required opulence you can find in Tourlos for rent too!
