In Barcelona with El_Isleño

Architect and model Valandis Kallis can’t get enough of Barcelona. The spicy Greek Cypriot lad is 'falling in love' with travelling every summer, and here he reveals his favorite places from Barcelona; go-to beach, clubbing, site seeing and more.

His favourite area to stay is the Eixample of Barcelona. "Grab a coffee, a fresh bocadillo and press play on your ipod. Enjoy a long walk starting from Rambia de Catalunya, skipping the croud of Las Ramblas and get lost in the old streets of Raval" he noted.

Valandi's favourite destination is always the sea, and in Barcelona he had the opportunity to walk across the coastline and feel the vibe of the beach life.  "Final stop of my long walk was the W hotel where I stopped at the beach next to it. After that the steps are simple. Shoes off,  walk on the gold sand and relax by enjoying a glass of cold tasty sangria." 

El Isleño ( his Vlog name and Instagram ) has recently started vlogging and we can't stop watching his latest video from his trip in Barcelona.


Santa Marina: Mykonos' five star hotel destination

Located just ten minutes from the Chora, Santa Marina is perfect for enjoying all the benefits of Mykonos without the hustle and bustle. Inaugurated in the 70s, the hotel was the first on the Island to be awarded 5-stars, and has remained at the top of the sure-shots list ever since.

Travellers seeking luxurious serenity will choose from the hillside compound’s 101 rooms (including 9 suites with private swimming pools), or settle into one of the 13 villas, with their particularly lofty beds and sweeping views of the Aegean. Designer Sylvina Macipe Krontiras oversaw a three-year renovation that saw immaculate walls, noble wood panelling and clean lines come together in fine balance of unabashed luxury and Greek tradition.

From the private beach to the swimming pools and from the stylish experience in Reef Boutique to organizing a memorable and ultra-romantic wedding, the Santa Marina Resort & Villas still is a premier accommodation choice in Mykonos that combines cosmopolitan lifestyle with modern comforts and uber chic aesthetic.

Santa Marina Mykonos, Ornos 846 00, Greece, open until October 15, 2018, reopening mid-May 2019.
