As we transition into the depths of autumn and the cold weather finally sets in here in Australia, the thought of escaping to a lush and tranquil European summer just gets more and more appealing.
Bill & Coo | Mykonos, Greece
A peaceful, haven of luxury perfectly positioned over Megali Ammos Bay, just a few minutes walk from the center of the vibrant Mykonos Town. Bill & Coo is the perfect location to enjoy the romantic Mykonian sunsets that envelop the Aegean Sea. Having adopted the lovers’ expression “to Bill & Coo”, which means to be affectionate and whisper endearments, the hotel is a heavenly sanctuary for couples. Magnificently styled seaview suites appeal to those seeking a relaxing and romantic escape. The pictureperfect lounge area invites guests to bask in comfort and enjoy the tailored services, fantastic scenery, signature cocktails and scrumptious Greek creative cuisine by talented and distinguished Executive Chef Athinagoras Kostakos who explores and shares different cuisine origins and styles.
Katikies | Santorini, Greeze
Katikies—a complex of bridges, cubist cottages and infinity pools—is considered the grande dame of Santorini’s boutique hotels. Hugging the dramatic Caldera (a volcanic rim), which affords astounding vistas, the property is a natural fit for honeymooners, romantics and couples. The white washed suites have classic arched ceilings and majestic views of the Aegean Sea, which can be enjoyed from the large terrace with an open-air dining area, sun deck and two-person Jacuzzi. For the ultimate romantic meal, the Dinner Restaurant provides the perfect setting with just four candlelit tables perched on a secret verandah rooftop overlooking the Caldera. The better-known Kirini Pool Restaurant offers the same breathtaking panoramas, plus a fresh, seasonal menu of traditional Mediterranean dishes.
