Considering it’s a 10-minute walk from the heart of the Old Town, the hotel is the perfect base for anyone who wants to make the most of the town’s galleries, boutiques, restaurants and bars. That said, the pool area is sufficiently covetable that you’ll likely find yourself hurrying back for an afternoon dip, sampling cocktails from one of the cabana-shaded day-beds. Known for its stone-paved streets and azure-blue shutters, Hora looks a little bit like a toy town, such is the uniformity of its whitewashed houses and the brightness of their painted balconies. Its narrow, winding streets are home to a wealth of boutiques, cafés and restaurants (both low-key and ritzy) that lend themselves to leisurely lunches and drawn-out dinners. For a hit of contemporary culture, stop off at Rarity Gallery, an elegant exhibition space given over to contemporary art. It’s compact but the collection is wide-ranging, showcasing the work of established and emerging artists alike. For something much older, visit the Church of Panagia Paraportiani, parts of which date from the 14th century. The building’s unusual shape is explained by the fact that it’s actually five different churches: four are dedicated to saints, with the final, dome-like structure built to honour the Virgin Mary. From there, stroll up to the town’s famous 16th-century windmills, some of which have been converted into museums or private homes. Boni’s windmill crests the hill, and lays claim to some of the best sunset views anywhere on the island. For a change of scene, book a tasting at Mykonos Vioma Organic Farm, an old monastery vineyard producing organic and biodynamic wines from classic Aegean grape varieties.
