Mansion global: romantic estate in Mykonos, Greece

3 mins ago admin Comments Off on Mansion global: romantic estate in Mykonos, Greece

Set up high at the end of a small peninsula, sandwiched between Paradise Bay and Super Paradise Beach, with views across the stunningly blue Aegean Sea, you may as well be on your own private island, said Natalie Leontaraki, of Greece Sotheby’s International Realty, about this property.

This is one of the reasons celebrities and royal families, with their children, bodyguards and nannies in tow, love to holiday on the “Chateau estate”, made up of 17 bedrooms and 18 bathrooms.

Located on 10,000sq m are four buildings that include eight guesthouses. The main residence, at 360sq m, has six bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The large guesthouse, of 300sq m, has a further five. The rest of the bedrooms are spread out across 500sq m of accommodation in two small guesthouses and space underneath the main residence.

The design of the buildings, constructed in 2004, reflects “cool, calm and chic contemporary Mykonian living”, Natalie says, with thick whitewashed walls, shuttered windows and tiled floors that keep it comfortable even on the hottest days.

The properties, owned by a fund management group, were designed to use as much material from Mykonos as possible and the exposed rocky walls, taken from local mountains, give the bedrooms a “cave-like” feeling. Rocks are also used to keep the swimming pool at the main house sheltered, since Mykonos is known as a windy island. Secret lighting in the rocks, along with candles lit on a hot evening, makes it “super romantic,” Natalie says.
