Greek ferry captains are born with the same DNA as F1 drivers. This fact is observable from the delightful terrace of the Mykonos Grace Hotel. Set above the fine-sanded beach of Aghios Stefanos (St Stephen) in the north of the island, the Grace is a charming and elegant little hotel.
Not as grand as its upmarket sister on Santorini and not as pretentious as others in town, the Grace will appeal to those wanting a quiet base, not a resort, from which to explore the delights of Mykonos and its environs.
With just 32 rooms and suites (some with outdoor, private hot tubs) arrayed over four floors and limited public space, the Grace is very intimate. This is not the place for those looking to see and be seen; far from it. The feeling here is more of an intimate house-party with a guest list that everyone wants their name to be on. During a stay, you are likely to run into and say hello to the occupants of most other rooms, and if the mood so inspires, make acquaintances and even new friendships. At the same time, it still provides ample opportunity for solitude, with a cocktail perhaps, seated on a day bed next to the gorgeous pool, while watching the sun go down. The success of this style of hotel-keeping was evident on the smiling faces of the guests we saw during our brief stay.
The Grace also serves some the best and most imaginative food we have eaten in Greece, and it is worth a visit for that alone.
