Greece has no shortage of islands, many of which have earned their place in history. For some, like Crete, this honor stems from civilizations that ceased to exist more than 3,000 years ago. Although Mykonos has at times been a force that has moved the tides of history from the classical period to the Greek War of Independence, it is best known simply for what it is: a beautiful island.
This beauty has certainly been added over the years. The ever-splendid local architecture is reaching new heights in the current century. Serene Venice has left its mark on the island, from medieval Venetian windmills to the charming neighborhood of Little Venice.
There is plenty to do on and off the island. Mykonos’ reputation as a top tourist destination has proven to be a self-fulfilling prophecy. As more and more people visit, more and more great restaurants and high-end shops are built, which adds to the appeal.
This has of course also led to the construction of a remarkable number of world-class accommodations in the form of luxury villas. The following is not an exhaustive list. But, to paint a picture of the glory that awaits you in Mykonos, here is a sample of 12 extravagant villas on this unforgettable island.
