Should you want to extend your stay in the Lesser Cyclades, it is tiny, but trendy Ano Koufonissi, with its slew of unspoilt beaches that provides those ‘early Mykonos vibes’ and family-run Myrto where you should book at.

Rising at a small hillock 50m from the main beach and with great views towards mysterious Keros – out of bounds, as the whole island is an active archaeological site – the hotel subscribes to the sparkling white Cycladic style with marble bathrooms, airy rooms with large windows and high ceilings.

A lush walled garden with a pool, a freshly-cooked breakfast and warm, friendly service will complete your idyllic hideaway.

Hike to top of Mount Zas

Naxos, Greek Islands, Greece[14 miles]

At 1001m, the highest peak in the Cyclades is a challenge to hikers; start either from the bus terminus in the village of Filoti or, if you have a car, drive to the chapel of Agia Marina. The trail is easy, shaded and well-signposted with some incredible panoramas at the top.

Naxos, Greek Islands, Greece[17.2 miles]

With no fewer than five quirky museums, and the air of a forbidding mountain lair, the village of Apeiranthos, all laid out in Naxiot local marble, is the perfect place to experience the island’s wild mountainous interior.

Valindras Kitron Distillery

Valindras Kitron Distillery

Naxos, Greek Islands, Greece[18 miles]

This unassuming village, 16km from the capital, claims 13th-century frescos in the Panagia Protothronis church and a 17th-century Venetian Tower. But it’s the Valindras kitron distillery that everyone comes to visit: tour the factory, take part in tastings, and buy some bottles to take home.
