A small beautiful hotel where the owners make you feel at home. What we liked most about the hotel is the warmth it exuded. Giannis and his family go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable... We were offered lunch upon our late afternoon arrival which we relished as this was our first home cooked meal after two weeks of living out of a suitcase.
Location --The hotel is a seven minute walk to Mykonos town. There is a bus stop few paces from the hotel with a frequent bus service to all the beaches. There's also a supermarket right next to it. The hotel is only a 5-10 min drive to the port & airport and for a nominal cost of 5 euros per person Giannis can offer you a pick up & drop.
The only downside about our stay was that the air conditioning kept shutting off on its own (not on timer mode) but nothing serious enough to complain about. We also felt a bit overcharged for the lunch we had on our arrival - A plate of rice and a beef patty minus a side order or drinks was around 23 euros for 2 pax. A bit steep.. so it's best to check the rates first.
Overall -- With the exorbitant hotel prices in Mykonos we were pleasantly surprised with the cheap room rates Sourmeli has to offer. This garden hotel is one of the best in Mykonos simply because of its hospitality and the feeling of being at home when you are away from home :))

... accurately, alleys, twist & turn every 10 m apparently to fool the pirates. It was quite windy & coolish so we returned to the waterfront & had another drink & a plate of the best fried squid that we have ever tasted. Luckily for us the wi-fi worked well so we all caught up on correspondence etc.
At about 6.30 we returned to the ship & were in bed by about 9pm after a pretty lazy ...
... storage areas led people to believe that the owners were secretly pirates. Some of the houses have now been converted into bars and cafes and little shops and galleries. Little Venice is considered one of the most romantic spots on the island and many people gather there to watch the sunset.

... parting gift, a final funny interaction. Next to my hotel you can hire scooters and four wheelers. The guy that works there often sits out the front on one of the bikes so each day I had been saying hello as I walked past. Well it would be rude not to :)
On my last walk up the hill he stopped me for a chat. It must be so boring sitting there all day. Turns out he was actually pretty cute up close. He asked me the usual questions; where are you from, first time ...
... balcony, but they can see clear across the bay and to the windmills below with their front door open. Connor and I are then taken to Room 612.
To say its on the other side of the resort is an understatement. We have to walk a good 5 minutes down hills, around corners, up hills until we actually get to the building that houses our room (and the Spa area as well). We then have to walk up 6 flights of stairs - 50 in total - to get to our room which is at the very end of ...

Weinfuhrer Bömers & KIaebisch
Wine Merchants or Weinfuhrers began acting as the conduit between the Germans and the wineries as nègociants. One famous merchant was Heinz Bömers; he worked with the wineries and treaded a fine line between trader, sympathiser and collaborator in Bordeaux. He despised the Nazi’s and considered Hitler a criminal. As possibly the ...
