Best For

Raw Mykonian surroundings to rest and recharge in

the Low Down

Set into the hillside of Ornos bay, Kalesma meaning ‘to invite,’ welcomes those who wish to have an authentic Mykonian experience, with its whitewashed walls, neutral and earthy colour palette mimicking the Cycladic surroundings. The suites and villas all come with their own private heated pool and offer stunning views of the Aegean Sea with glorious sunrise and sunset views. The open-air living concept allows guests to make the most of these panoramas from their private terraces and al fresco dining areas. Bringing people together through food, Pere Ubu captures the flavours of the Mediterranean through Grecian specialities and don’t forget to make a stop by the local baker, who makes daily loaves of Horiatiko Psomi (traditional crusty bread).
