will be our first of two islands we visit on our honeymoon - Milos. It
is in fact the place where the famous Venus de Milo was discovered, and
is also home to the oldest marble Greek amphitheater.
Milos appears to be a very chill island with an unreal coast line of
plunging cliffs and crystal blue waters. The Lagada Beach hotel is as
low-key as the island, and it even has its own beach with an
uninterrupted view of the sea.
am not sure what I love most about this loft: the white-washed
ceiling? the see-through panels in the floor? the symmetrical
columns? the sky lights? the abundance of light? the bricks? the
messed up concrete floors? the peeping-tom square windows on the left?
the eclectic mix of furniture that is almost pulled off but not quite?
the flat screen that is not centered and yet is visible from any vantage
point in the room? Ya, I still can't decide.
decided that Milos will be one of the two islands we hop to after our
wedding. The Mar Inn offers the perfect combination of killer Aegean
sea views + modern design + proximity to town (2 min from
Chora). Folegandros is one of my favorites of the Cyclades because it
is still so unspoiled: no cars are allowed on the entire island, and in
the town square you can play back gammon at some of the cafes. It's so
under the radar that the last time I was there, I saw Muccia &
hubbie quietly eating under the canapes of the Judas tress.
