Location & Access
Perched above the scenic bay of Houlakia, the San Marco offers an authentic Mykonos experience peppered with sterling service.
All the relaxation you needed
Sun-drenched Mykonos has become a byword for crazy, round-the-clock partying. However, underneath this visage exists a historic, whitewashed island with endless charms.
Situated in the heart of the Cycladic archipelago, Mykonos boasts a sunny climate, heavenly beaches, glamorous shopping and unforgettable cuisine. There is also a Medieval, maze-like capital and an abundance of historic sites that are as post-card-perfect as they are unique: from quaint Byzantine churches to 16th-century thatched windmills, and from the sea-front colourful neighbourhood of Little Venice, to antiquity’s sacred islet, the UNESCO-protected Delos. It’s no wonder that party animals aside, there is a whole different kind of travellers looking to experience Mykonos’ many attractions – couples, honeymooners, foodies, sports enthusiasts, history buffs, families with kids and silver-hairs with a zest for life.
Luxury amid nature
At the San Marco, we are happy to welcome them all. Our sunset-facing Mykonos Luxury Hotel & Villas is perched atop the stunning bay of Houlakia, on the northwest side of the island. According to myth, this is where the Titans’ bodies still lay, after being slaughtered by Hercules in the battle of the Giants. Myths and legends aside, Houlakia is distinctly beautiful, with smooth, beautiful pebbles and an aura of calm which makes for a welcoming divergence from Mykonos’ wilder shores. With staggering views, all the way to the neighbouring Syros and Tinos, the San Marco is also just 4 km away from the iconic main town and a few minutes’ drive from some of the best beaches on the island. The port and the airport are moreover at 3 and 12 minutes by car, respectively.
- Main Town: Houlakia is approximately 4 km (about 7 minutes) drive from the main town of Mykonos.
- Ferry/Cruise Ship Port: Houlakia is approximately 2 km (about 3 minutes) drive from the Ferry/Cruise Ship Port of Mykonos.
