Aletro Cottage Houses

Mykonos is the ultimate summer holidays destination, both in relaxation, luxury and beach parties. But every story has its start. Mykonos started being a tourist destination at the early sixties, when the wealthiest and most famous people of the world, visited in order to meet the local cuisine, the amazing crystal-blue beaches, the ancient Delos and the incredible mykonian culture.

Mykonos has a different Residential building system than the other islands, with only two settlements, Chora (the port settlement) and Ano Mera, which is located near the Monastery of Virgin Mary. The rest of the island is sparsely populated with cottage houses, where the peasants build their houses where their land is, living there autonomic with their family and animals. When a Mykonian invites you to his “village”, he really means his house!

One of those cottage houses is Aletro which is located in “Agia Sofia” area, close to the new port and only 1,5km distance from Mykonos Town.

History

Our grandfather back in 1950 started to amass this land and built his house and many facilities for his livestock. As the years come and go, there were more buildings in order to fulfill the family needs. The property is inherited from generation to generation. Today our traditional houses are the evolution and the transformation of the rooms and space that some years ago served the wellbeing of the cottage house. Our traditional bungalows offer a different perspective of vacations to you and your family or friends.

Style

Our houses have minimal style, a combination of the mykonian design and the modern view of simplicity. We tried to assimilate the retro style of the mykonian houses of 60s with the modern requirements. The result awaits you, to enjoy a different style of holidays and entertainment. Except from the bungalows and the suites, the facilities of Aletro Cottage Houses also offer a mykonian Chapel and a traditional Tavern, that can host a variety of events, and a wandering to the mykonian cuisine.

Facilities & Amenities

Aletro cottage houses offer a magnificent view of the sea, the Aegean Sea, since it’s located in a slope. Moreover the houses are fully equipped with cuisine equipment, TV, A/C, Wi-Fi and free parking area. Our rooms have either sea or garden view and our presence at the reception will make things easier for you.

Moreover, Aletro cottage houses offers a variety of activities like traditional cuisine cooking lessons, horse-riding and participation in activities of the cottage house that will make you feel the real mykonian life!
