IT'S THE WAY TO LIVE

Considered one of the "hot" spots on the Mediterranean with a notorious reputation for partying, Mykonos isn't just for jet-setters, party-goers, and folks with alternative lifestyles. Nope, it's an oasis for everybody - its local citizens and the global visitors it attracts. And unlike other Greek villages, in Mykonos you won't find any remnants from antiquity or be reminded of a bygone civilization. Instead, you'll witness a simple, yet beautiful community filled with whitewashed neighborhoods and people with colorful traditions.

    What a pretty place. I've never thought of Greece or her islands before as a destination. I think I probably will now :-)

    So much like the Spanish white villages, in fact I think prettier. I really must try to visit Greece. I love the way you photograph the locals too, adds life and character to the pictures.

    Mykonos is one of those greek islands that is always on the front cover of the holiday mags, and you can see why, its beautiful.
