And few of those isles have both the mix of seclusion and busling town life of Mykonos. Architect Dimitris Rizos designed this home with a view to perfection. Here, the villa's roof and the Aegean Sea beyond. Yiorgos Kordakis/Interior ArchiveLike a modern fortress, the villa is built on the craggy rocks in one of the island's secluded spots. Yiorgos Kordakis/Interior ArchiveIt may not look like the typical white-washed villa of your Greek dreams from the outside, but the inside has that famous aesthetic. In the entrance hall, an enormous photograph by Vanessa Beecroft greets guests. Yiorgos Kordakis/Interior ArchiveThe open-plan white living room provides a blank canvas for an ecclectic display of contemporary artwork. Yiorgos Kordakis/Interior ArchiveNature, meet modernity. Built into a rocky hill, the kitchen manages to combine contradictory features flawlessly.

Yiorgos Kordakis/Interior ArchiveFor your praying needs, a small stone chapel is perched on the hillside behind the house. Yiorgos Kordakis/Interior ArchiveNow you see it, now you don't. The small chapel, wall, and path are cut from the same stone as the surrounding landscape so that they blend in naturally with the hills. Yiorgos Kordakis/Interior ArchiveThe small chapel is set against the blue summer sky. Yiorgos Kordakis/Interior ArchiveIs this heaven? A pair of lounge chairs perches beside the ridiculously blue water of the infinity pool overlooking the Aegean Sea.
