90f3569acecfc552ade3c1e4be557d81-1

Today another beautiful house on the Italian island of Panarea. The property consists of three houses which have lovingly been restored with respect to local traditions and materials. Panarea is a small island located off the Sicilian coast and is one of the Aeolian Islands. Out of the eight islands that make up the chain of the Aeolian Islands, Panarea is the second smallest. The island is only 3km long and 2km wide and there are only around 280 permanent residents on the island which makes it a very charming island. Over many centuries Panarea, like all the Aeolian Islands was mostly deserted. Recently the island has become a important tourist destination for (wealthy tourists).

STYLISH SCORPIUS BEACH CLUB ON MYKONOS, GREECE

scorpios6

I am back from a wonderful holiday on Mallorca! I will tell you more about that later this week but today I would like to show you a beautiful beach club on the Greek Island of Mykonos. This beautiful restaurant was featured in Vogue Living and it went straight to my places-to-visit list when I read about it. Like an ancient agora (meeting place), the Scorpios beach club boasts stylish day beds and lounges on open air terraces spread across a peninsula flanked by Kavos and Paraga Beaches on Mykonos. I love (love, love) the natural style atmosphere! Wood, rattan, stone: these materials and colors mixed together give a wonderful rustic chic atmosphere. I can see myself laying on one of those comfy day beds staring into the blue Aegean sea the entire day!
