Minimalism & Bird’s eye views | Mykonos View Hotel, Greece
Apprx. Reading Time: 2 minutes
On my last day in Mykonos last year, I knew if I visited again, I’d love some peace and quiet. I’d love to see the windmills and Little Venice again too, but maybe stay away from the hustle and bustle. I didn’t realize when I booked Hotel Mykonos View that it wasn’t just a hotel, it was a vast property, set in a lovely corner of the island, about a 10 minute walk from the main town.
We got to Hotel Mykonos View and had to take our luggage up some stairs. Rugged ones made from stone; beautiful and homely. After being greeted at the reception warmly, a concierge led the way to show us to our room. Set on a hillock, the room was spacious. What took me by surprise was the room upstairs, which had a bed even bigger than the one downstairs, but the best bit was an attached terrace with a rooftop that you could get to if you were careful enough. So I did and sat on the edge enjoying the most gorgeous views one could have of Mykonos, sipping wine.
The rooms were vast and could sleep a family of 5 comfortably. They were spacious and like most houses were completely white, done in traditional Cycladic architecture. Little artifacts placed around the room gave it a cosy, charming feel. The bathroom was designed as a single space and seemed a little compact when compared to the room. There was also a tiny sink and some basic cutlery provided.
As sunset drew near the room was covered in light. In order to get a 360 degree view we headed to the topmost level of the hotel which also had a pool and a gorgeous chapel sat perched on a ledge at one end. A very charming boat was converted to a couch beneath it.
We set our camera to capture the sun setting down on Mykonos and grabbed some wine to complete the setting. It did take a while so we took a shot walk on probably the highest altitude near the city and watched a couple of cats jostle playfully nearby…
The sun finally set on Mykonos and bathed the windmills, the port and almost all the bits of Mykonos we could see in gold.
After enjoying a sunset at ease in what probably felt like ages, I then headed to the bar downstairs to get my dose of music for the day…..
