The ability to bring together the boutique warmth and friendliness of family with the exclusivity of luxury accommodation, is a fine art. Masters of this fine art are brothers Panos, Markos, Vangelis and Marios. Their parents George and Elefteria Daktylides founded the Myconian Collection in 1979, and to this day the core of the collection remains the same: “to create the ultimate hospitality experience that comes straight from the heart”. Leading the way in luxury accommodation, a stay at one of the Myconian Collection is all you need when in Mykonos.

The Story

It’s a story of family, humble beginnings and big dreams. For many years the beauty of Mykonos was the best kept secret in Greece. It operated on a bater styled economy with its locals trading produce from the land for imports like flour, sugar and spaghetti. Times began to change and the secret of Mykonos was revealed as “high society” travellers began to stop on their way to the ruins of Delos. George Daktylides was a man with a plan, set on winning the hand of Eleftheria, a young woman from Delos and building the first hotel on Mykonos outside of town. By 1979 George Daktylides had succeeded in both. With Eleftheria by his side, together they raised four children, each of whom now run the Myconian Collection hotels, and worked incredibly hard to create the world class Myconian Collection of Mykonos.
