Hotel Of My Dreams: San Giorgio, Mykonos

2 July 2012 0


Don’t blame me. It’s the high temperatures that shape my blog content these days. With summer outside I am totally drawn to the south, holidays, voyages. And I am considering my summer vacations too, so I am browsing the net for inspiration. This is how it happened: I’ve found the hotel of my dreams – the San Giorgio on the Greek island of Mykonos. This is exactly what I have in mind when thinking of perfect holidays: a sun-spoilt island in the Aegean and a hotel that is so beautifully designed that it is hard to leave the room!

Even though I went twice to Mykonos, this hotel make a third time inevitable. Many years ago I went for the first time to Mykonos – it was a get-to-know-each-other Erasmus student week, so I partied a lot and slept little. A few years later I visited the island again with one of my friends from Paris and we partied a lot and slept little. Now that I got older and wiser, it is probably time to spend perfect, more quiet holidays on Mykonos. And the San Giorgio hotel is the perfect place to do that.

The relaxed ‘rustic charm meets sophisticated interior design’ just nails it for me. The abundance of whites and natural hues are juxtaposed by vibrant colour pops, wooden furniture and a refined selection of decoration. This well-thought design  underlines the subtle mix of Mediterranean and Eastern influences. The hammock on the terrace and the stark blue Aegean sea ahead – only one question remains: Why am I not there right now?

    Now, the question is: why am I not there?

    This is fab Igor. A piece of heaven on earth. Everything about it is perfect and to my taste.

    The picture with the hammock looked like a pencil drawing. I had to look twice.

    Anyway, ready when you are:)

    Das ist wirklich ein tolles Hotel, da fühlt man sich beim Anblick der Fotos direkt wie im Urlaub. Genau das brauchte ich bei diesem trüben Münchner Regenwetter, danke!

    What a great place! Wish to be there right now, too, instead of looking out of the window seeing grey skies and needing a cardigan when leaving the house.
    The all white and natural hues colour scheme is really beautiful and I love all these wonderful and hand picked furniture and accessories.

    Thank you so much for sharing this gorgeous place with us.
    Have a happy day.

    Ok I thought I was won over by the mosquito net over the bed and wooden furniture……and then I saw the hammock! I really need to go there ASAP.

    Oh wow, this is paradise. Love how they kept everything so light feeling, from the white floors to the silver accents to the light coloured baskets and weaved textures.

    Now this stunning hotel will be on my mind all week. Have never been to Mykonos, but have always wanted to. Will bookmark this post. Thanks Igor!

    Thank you all so much for your comments – each of them made me happy!

  • Reply holly@hvhinteriors 3 July 2012 at 21:56

    Awesome!!! I need to go there too (insert long sigh here). I was actually looking into some Greek vacations for fun this week … someone I know really recommended Santorini. Have you ever been?


    • Reply Igor Josifovic 3 July 2012 at 21:58

      Yes, Santorini is also very beautiful. Fulfills all Greek island clichés! But just as Mykonos, it is a pricey island, especially if you want to stay in the spectacular villages with Caldera view…

    What an amazing hotel and Mykonos I will have to come check you out!! Will have to plan yet another trip over to Europe and this time will pair Greek island with Germany family visit! Thanks so much for sharing this fantastic hotel vacay destination with us!
