The best places to stay in Mykonos? Our favourite villages and accommodations
When you think of the island's capital, Mykonos, the first thing that comes to mind is probably the picturesque old town with its whitewashed houses and colourful balconies. In the old town, it's easy to just drift along, the beautiful alleys are not only a great photo motif, but should also be enjoyed without the lens in front of your eye. Here you can stroll through the small cafés, boutiques and art galleries. Especially the boutiques are a true paradise for all shopping enthusiasts, you will find not only international but also local designers here. Sightseeing in Mykonos Town is particularly relaxing if you stroll through the streets first thing in the morning, bypassing the cruise ship and day tourists somewhat. Enjoy unique panoramic views and modern design at one of our stylish boutique hotels in Mykonos.
Other great sights of the town include the windmills, which are considered a landmark of the island. The so-called Kato Mili, on the edge of the old town, were originally built in the 15th and 16th centuries and were used for a long time to process the grain supplied. This is also a particularly good place to watch the sunset in the evening.
Mykonos Town also has a traditional harbour, to the north of the old town, which has a great harbour promenade. Here you will find many small restaurants surrounded by a great backdrop of white houses and deep blue sea. You will find trendy and cool luxury hotels in Mykonos.
Finally, the neighbourhood of Little Venice is characteristic of Mykonos Town. Little Venice got its name because of the colourful townhouses in a great location, right on the water. This romantic district was built between the 13th and 18th centuries, when Mykonos was under Venetian rule. It is therefore "real history" and not just replicas. Perhaps you will stay in a stylish vacation rental on Mykonos.
