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.

Trust & Security
Action Fraud reported in 2018 that consumers lost over £7 million in online villa scams. We operate from a 'bricks and mortar' Office, are fully accountable, have full liability insurance and know all of our villas and their respective owners. Quite simply, we deliver on our promises.
Our sole aim is to understand the needs of each client and match them to exactly the right villa. We have no vested interest in any individual property.
All of our villas are listed by invitation only. No owner can pay for their property to be listed on the Red Savannah site.
The above benefits are not offered lightly. Red Savannah clients receive all the advantages and protections listed above, without paying a penny more. And remember, apart from the inability to match-make the right client to the right property, ‘Rental by Owner’ sites and other online sites will not only take on more or less any property willing to pay, but could expose the user to fraud. And if things go wrong, try getting hold of anyone to take responsibility! This is your holiday - Why risk it?
*Best Price Guarantee applies only at the time of enquiry and before the booking has been confirmed and paid. If you find a cheaper price for exactly the same property on a like for like basis and over identical dates, and where in the sole opinion of Red Savannah, no substantive pricing error has been made or private discount offered, Red Savannah will match the price. This guarantee is valid only when prices are advertised and compared in the same currency. Please note that no further amendments to prices can be made following payment of deposit.
The idea for Red Savannah was always based on a clear market need. A small team of the most experienced travel designers, supported by the latest technology and delivered with the lightest touch. In short, a travel company redefined for the 21st century.
