8 of the best views on Mykonos
Although Mykonos's iconic whitewashed buildings with their cheery blue-domed roofs are always a delight to behold, the views are even better when savoured from the comfort of one of our breathtaking clifftop villas. Lounge beside the sparkling infinity pool, chilled drink in hand, and admire the sparkling Aegean Sea stretching into the distance, framed by the soft white shores, ancient stone churches and quaint windmills for which the isle is famed. Here are eight of our favourite spots for soaking up the very best views in the Cyclades.
