The Cyclades are the Aegean’s most treasured gem. Probably the most famous of Greek islands, they live up to their name by showcasing iconic waters, breathtaking villages, rich history, and a distinct personality. The Cyclades were named after their characteristic shape, since they form a circle around the sacred island of Delos.
The Cyclades cover 2,572 km2, with approximately 120,000 residents that occupy the islands in a density of 46/km2. They consist of an astonishing number of 220 islets and bigger islands, such as Naxos, Paros, Mykonos, Tinos, and the up-and-coming Schinoussa. The island group is divided into 9 provinces, 20 municipalities and 11 communities.
The Cyclades are definitely an attraction point for those wishing to buy a property. Many international buyers choose the famous islands not only for a vacation, but as a permanent home as well. Since 2019, there has been an amazing increase in demand for Cycladic properties from all over the world. The prices are mostly reasonable around 2,000 euros/km2. Luxurious properties are a bit pricier, as expected.
Just like the majority of Greek islands, the Cyclades have a variety of properties, including simpler and more luxurious options. Most of the Cycladic properties follow the pattern of severe shapes, the use of rock and the characteristic white color that has defined so many of the Greek islands.
The many islands that create the famous Cyclades are a safe investment when it comes to choosing the destination of your dreams. Whether you are interested in a vacation or relocation, Cyclades is the place to be. They offer the trademark unforgettable Greek beaches, amazing light, beautiful sceneries and a rich history. Their sapphire waters host an array of water sports, while their cobblestone streets are ideal for taking long walks or exploring the many restaurants, bars and clubs most of the Cycladic islands have to offer. Paros, Naxos and, of course, the famous Mykonos are known for combining incomparable beauty with a rich lifestyle suitable for all ages. All in all, the Cyclades are full of sights and activities. From beautiful villages and imposing calderas, to their impressive architecture and picturesque windmills, they are a sight for sore eyes. It’s no wonder famous director Luc Besson chose one of the Cyclades, and particularly Amorgos, to shoot his highly acclaimed film “The Big Blue”!
