The Cyclades are about breathtaking light. And true blue. Myth has it that the Cyclades were born out of Poseidon’s rage. Once nymphs, they infuriated the God of the Seas, who transformed them into islands. But not just any islands. Perhaps the most beautiful islands in the world.
Fringed with pristine beaches and crystal-clear waters. Dotted with white-washed architecture. Exciting yet at the same time evoking a sense of tranquillity, as if time stood still through the aeons. Each island beautiful in its own remarkable way.
Imagine a place so divine your heart might burst with emotion, a place so unique it’s secrets and voice linger through centuries of history.
This is the stuff of dreams and it awaits you to discover it.
