Fokos | Mykonos
The tranquil beach house.
In an island as famous as Mykonos, finding a tranquil beach is something of a rarity. Thankfully, the party crowds tend to stay at the more popular southern part of the island; which makes the beautiful sandy bay of Fokos one of the island's best kept secrets. This is the setting: a tranquil beach quiet even in the midst of high-season, a family taverna that serves traditional Greek dishes, and a handful of houses that overlook the bay scattered across the area's barren slopes.
This villa is perhaps the most privileged among these. Set right at the foot of a slope, meters away from the sand, this is a deluxe version of a beach home. Mixing contemporary elements with the island's vernacular design, the house is stone-built, whitewashed and arranged in different-sized blocks that interconnect. A slice of ground has been evened out to create space for a large terrace fitted with a swimming pool and pergolas that shade the lounge and dining spots.
The interior is bright and spacious, with large windows that let the connect the indoors to the outdoors. Classic island-chic furnishings in elegant white-and-ivory colour schemes decorate the living areas, granting an air of effortless sophistication. The bedrooms are spacious and airy, decorated minimally in natural tones to convey a sense of relaxation and comfort. The villa includes a guest house with a double bedroom.
