The view from this stylish villa is nothing less than picture-perfect
Mykonos is the quintessential Greek island: sugar-white villages, blue-domed churches, rocky landscapes, the azure Aegean and sandy beaches. In a nation of legends, Mykonos is Greece’s most fabled island.
This villa is nestled in the north of the island, near Moroergo and Ftelia Bay, a place of spectacular natural beauty. Set in its own private grounds of 8,000m2, the modern house commands a peaceful panoramic hill-top setting.
The house faces the secluded beaches of Panormos and Agios Sostis, noted for their golden sand, low dunes and crystal clear waters. The island’s famous south-coast beaches are only a 10-minute drive away. The villa is conveniently located 2.5 kilometres from the village of Ano Mera and 12 kilometres from the town of Mykonos.
The gorgeous villa offers 280m² of living space and is currently divided into four apartments, but could easily be converted to a spacious and stunning family home with an independent guest apartment.
Bathed in natural light, the residence offers the finest in everyday living and fluid indoor-outdoor entertaining, with fabulous outdoor spaces that include a pergola with seating for 12. Brilliant unending views of sea and sky can be taken in from the inviting swimming pool.
Mykonos began to charm the international elite in the 1960s when the Greek shipping magnate, Aristotle Onassis, arrived there on his yacht with celebrated opera diva Maria Callas, and later Jacqueline Kennedy. Film stars Sophia Loren, Brigitte Bardot and Grace Kelly were part of the international jetset to grace its shores.
Today, Mykonos continues to dazzle. The jewel of the Aegean is still the place to see and be seen amid some of the most astounding scenery to be found anywhere in the Greek islands. Mykonos is renowned for its gorgeous beaches, crystalline, turquoise waters and the island’s iconic windmills, which are probably the most photographed in Greece. The island is a dazzling kaleidoscope of mountain scenery, homey taverns and enchanting churches, all set against a striking blue backdrop.
The island’s capital, Chora or Mykonos Town, is particularly charming and considered as one of the most beautiful cities in the Cyclades. Its beauty has made it the star attraction of many movies.
Situated in a staggeringly scenic location, this chic villa is situated to make the most of the unbeatable panoramic views. This is another world, one of supreme privacy, tranquility and comfort. This is a hideaway that blends seamlessly with its environment.
With an alluring combination of effortless style and quality finishes, the property offers its owners a private, luxurious and highly sought-after lifestyle.
