Our room at Petasos Hotel has its own little pool.
We’ve been wallowing in it and watching the boats sail by.
And a quick dip makes the most deliciously fresh start to a day.
Breakfast with a view like this doesn’t hurt either…
Having eaten our daily dose of rainbow, we slipped on sandals and trotted off to the beach.
This time venturing a little further than the hotel lido.

Just a short walk from the hotel we found Psarou Beach.
A glittering turquoise bay with sandy shores and a world famous restaurant.
The stroll down is quite something in itself!

We walked right along the water’s edge (having immediately burned our feet on the hot sand!) to Nammos.
A beach club and restaurant I’ve been wanting to visit for a while.
Decorated in the chicest of Greek styles.
Keep going past the all white restaurant, and look for the garden. (On the right if you’re looking at the sea.)
Travel through the tunnel of blossoming trees.
Past the produce.
Past the catch of the day.
And take a seat beneath the palms.
Order something suitably refreshing.
You could happily while away an afternoon here, listening to the chilled beats, watching the beautiful people come and go.
And most importantly, nibbling on something deep fried and dipped in yogurt.
I chose my usual, shrimp saganaki. (SO easy to make at home, try this recipe and thank me later!)
While m’lady chose seafood pasta.
She is part Italian, after all.
Her necklace of crystals was my gift to her when I asked her to be my maid of honour.
It’s a bespoke piece by Silver May, I had made just for Valentina.
We sat together sipping cocktails, chatting away and letting the increasingly boisterous crown amuse us. (Come sunset the place will be hopping and people will make their tables their own dancefloor.)
But we left them to it and headed home to snooze off lunch.
And get a little extra lick of paint before the rest of the girls arrive!

Which is today, as it happens.
Wish us luck & look out Mykonos!
