Yassas from Greece xx

It’s no secret that we love chasing the summer sunshine and seeing our latest collection worn by our beautiful lilys around the world...
Our lily Emma has us wanderlust-ing over her Grecian island hopping.
Here she shares her sun-drenched travel journal from summer in Greece…

Mykonos ~ Wander the cobblestone streets lined with white washed walls and rustic blue doors of Mykonos town. It's easy to get lost for hours amongst the Cycladic style architecture and maze like streets that were originally designed to confuse attacking pirates. Visit the shops framed with bougainvillaea and find evil eye jewels, Greek sandals and locally made food. Make sure to explore Mykonos' turquoise water and sandy beaches like Paraga, Agia Anna and Ornos. Wear something that will take you from day to night and visit the Windmills as the sun sets over the Aegean.

~ Explore the pretty pastel town of Oia and wander through markets filled with little trinkets and treasures. Spend a day at the mesmerising Red Beach which lives up to its name with its rich red rock face. Another must see is the beautiful fisherman’s bay of Amoudi where you can jump into the ocean and look up in awe at the enormous cliff above. End the day by listening to the sounds of buskers and people applauding as the sun magically sets.

~ Milos is definitely a hidden slice of heaven for nature lovers. With over 70 beautiful beaches on the island, you need at least a week to explore. Sarakiniko beach is one of the many unique formations of Milos and is quickly becoming famous for its moon like landscape. The bright white volcanic rock, hidden caves and emerald waters will make you feel like you are on another planet. Swim in the main portion of the beach and then walk around to the left to discover an amazing cliff jump and swimming hole. Another beach not to miss is Firiplaka with its mesmerising mineral colours on display and crystal clear water. Papafragas, Tsigrado and Firopotamos are a must see too. There are also a lot of beautiful fishing villages on the island and Klima was a favourite with its multi coloured 'Symatra' beach shacks nestled into the rock.

Mykonos ~ Staying in Mykonos town is the best way to explore its incredible streets, shops and restaurants. There are plenty of places to choose from but if you’re after something different then San Giorgio is an incredible option with a luxurious yet bohemian feel.

~ Stay in the madness that is Oia, it is crowded but beautiful. Also, try and stay in Imerovigli as its just that little bit more peaceful...

~ Tania's is located in the blissful town of Pollonia. The traditional Cycladic style suite looks onto a naturally formed ocean pool and is in prime position to view both sunrise and sunset from your balcony. The moment you walk in the door Tania and her staff make you feel like family. The home made buffet breakfast is prepared by Tania's mum Mary every morning and consists of delicious fresh fruit, yoghurt, cakes and coffee. Make sure to visit ‘Apollo’s chair’ which is across the water from Tania’s. Greek mythology says that any two who sit on this chair like rock formation will be together forever.


Mykonos ~ Spilia Restaurant. Located on the seashore and nestled inside a cave is where you will find Spilia, a secluded seafood Tavern that will have you dreaming of going back daily. 

~ Tucked away in Little Venice is Kastro's, a delicious Greek restaurant famous for its beautiful alley way by the sea and views of the Windmills.

~ On the sun drenched tip of Paraga beach is the incredible Scorpios. It has been described as a modern day 'Agora' with its traditional white washed stone work and bohemian style interior. The amazing food and cocktails are best enjoyed on the open terrace with its endless views of the Aegean. Dance until the sun goes down with international DJ's, join in on collective healing rituals or cool off on Scorpios’ private beach.

~  Ammoudi Bay Sunset Tavern. The most idyllic place to have a fresh sunset dinner by the sea.
