Select the villa by considering the view. As Mykonos is located in the Cycladic region of the Aegean Sea, you’ll be able to take in the wonder of gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, the panoramic sea and sky, and the sea view.

For romantic souls or for couples, this may be an important precondition. You will find many Mykonos luxury villas with wonderful views to the ocean, to the sunset or panoramic. 

Consider the fact that a great view always makes us happy and relaxed so maybe it would be good for your vacations to invest a little on your villa’s view and location.

A nice but a little rare combination is a villa with a view to the water and the sunset. If you can find it, you will be able to wake up watching the sea and to have a relaxing cocktail on your own balcony or garden under the amazing colors of the sunset.

To find a sunset view villa, ask about its orientation – it has to be facing to the West. Villas that are secluded and located on hills can have wonderful views. In most cases, villas are built on the top of a hill offering great panoramic views to their guests.

Mykonos luxury villa amenities

Make a list of what services are necessary for you and your travel partners and a second list with what you would like to have but you could live without.

Most villas offer a big range of amenities and cooperate with concierge agencies so they can cover anything you may need. More amenities and services would mean a higher price, so it is better to skip the ones that you don’t need.

For example, if you are going to eat out every day, a garden BBQ will not be a necessity for you.

Most villas offer big indoor and outdoor spaces, big bedrooms, a fully operational kitchen, nice small or bigger gardens, swimming pools and jacuzzis.

Usually each bedroom has its own private bathroom and private balconies.

Ask your host to give you the contact details of a good concierge service and check what they offer.

If you want help with sightseeing and restaurant recommendations, they will help. Even if you are planning to throw a party, for example, you will find out their help will be very efficient and will ensure your guests will have an unforgettable time. You can hire private chefs, drivers, battlers, therapists or even bodyguards.
