Striking white churches as smooth-edged as igloos, boxy villages tumbling down to sheltered bays – Sifnos has the same world-famous architecture as moneyed Greek islands Santorini and Mykonos, but set against a quiet wilderness of mossy rock and spring wildflowers. Capital Apollonia is a hotchpotch of blue domes, vine-draped patios and cutesy buildings too picturesque, surely, to be a post office or pharmacy. Sandy beaches such as Vathi or Chrissopigi are only a 15- or 20-minute drive across the island. So where best to lay your head? Try one of the best hotels on Sifnos for every traveler.
