Europe / Greece / Mykonos
Drakothea is a stunningly beautiful property and offers an extraordinary setting for a dream vacation. The distinctive combination of breathtaking views, artistic elements, modern amenities, privacy, luxury and comfort make this villa an exceptional vacation spot.
Drakothea is carved on a hill in a beautiful, peaceful spot, on the south east side of the island of Mykonos. There are breathtaking and panoramic views of the Aegean Sea and numerous other islands (Naxos, Paros, Ikaria, Donusa) as well as the unexploited terrain of Mykonos past. Due to its majestic location, one has the feeling of floating over the Aegean, with Lia Bay at your feet and the secluded Tigani Beach minutes from your property.
The villa blends uniquely into the rocky topography of a hillside setting and the impressive infinity pool, which hugs the entire length of the main house, tantalizes your senses into believing you are swimming into the crystal clear blue waters below. The property offers extreme privacy, impeccable grounds and it is constantly cooled by the Aegean breezes and bathed all day long by the world famous Cycladic sunlight.
There are many living levels with such visual excitement that you become a part of its spirit. The Villa will dare you to decide where your favorite view is to relax and enjoy the Aegean. The villa's exterior is very spacious, with a lot of lounging areas around the pool, 3 outside sitting areas under traditional style pergolas and a stone oven/barbeque. Elegant grounds, in traditional Mykonian style, nestle in secluded walled gardens. Olive trees, bushes, shrubs and cacti among the rocks, form beautiful landscapes. The deck is equipped with elegant wood furniture. The blend of Mykonian old charm using stone and found wood create visual excitement. All major rooms open to a patio, balcony or terrace, where one can dine, sunbathe or lounge undisturbed. There are fireplaces in all indoor and bedroom areas and as well a very functional central heating, making the house very comfortable even during the winter months.
Load-bearing stone walls whitewashed with rough surfaces, floors out of stone or colored cement, build-in furniture, corridors carved into rocks, the use of old doors through out the house create a very elegant and cozy atmosphere.
Drakothea is tastefully decorated with antiques and art pieces and special attention paid to every detail. The lighting both in the day, but also at night seems almost magic, unexpected and dramatic and makes the house very cozy and romantic and the perfect stage for entertaining. This is a house with intimate charm, elegance and style, without compromising the needs of a modern, contemporary house. The advantages of villa Drakothea comparing with other properties on the island are really a lot but the main ones are the breathtaking, spectacular views , the absolute privacy and lastly the 24/7 concierge service that is provided and included and it is very personalized for each guest and their needs. Through it guests can have access and enjoy everything the island has to offer.
