Flights – Duration: 45 minutes, plus travel to/from airports
The fastest and most convenient way to get to the Cyclades is to fly from Athens. The Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos (ATH) offers flights to Mykonos (JMK), Santorini (JTR), Paros (PAS), Milos (MLO) and Astypalaia (JTY). Alternatively, several locations in Europe and the UK also offer flights to the Cycladic Islands but note that these flight schedules may be more seasonal. London, Munich, and Venice are just a few of the cities, which fly direct.
Ferry – Duration: 2.5 hours or longer, depending on your final destination
There are many fast and slow ferries available from Piraeus or Rafina, a smaller port, which is closer to the Athens International Airport. Alternatively, you can easily fly to one of the Cyclades of your choice and then continue to other islands via ferry.
Transfers & Car Rental – If you wish to explore the countryside and coastline outside of your villa’s immediate area, we highly recommend hiring a 4×4 vehicle for ease. Arranging public transport and taxis can be difficult and cumbersome over the busier months, and many remote beaches, mountainous villages, archaeological sites, and nice restaurants can only be reached by car.
