The labyrinthine cobbled streets which maze through Mykonos town were designed to disorientate potential marauders. The effect is not lost, although today around each turn visitors are more likely to encounter flashes of bougainvillea, a darting cat, or a lively restaurant terrace.
Perfectly sheltered on a hillside in the smart Agios Stephanos district, the five-bedroom villa Mari has views across the Aegean Sea to the old town of Mykonos, known as the chora, a 10-minute taxi drive away. Such dreamy views through the day's heat haze are arguably eclipsed only at night, when the lights of the town twinkle on the horizon in the warm summer breeze.
The stylish villa has been simply but lovingly furnished, with accommodation suitable for up to 10 guests across five bedrooms, each air-conditioned and with its own en suite bathroom. A spacious master bedroom occupies the entire upper floor, and comes with two private terraces, perfect for an undisturbed morning coffee while breathing in the views and energy of the island.
An outdoor terrace area features an inviting kidney-shaped infinity pool, a shaded dining terrace, sun-loungers and views across Mykonos, the chora and the Aegean Sea to the adjacent islands of Rineia and Delos, the latter a sacred island, the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis.
