Sanctuary Cove

Mykonos

Blissful island retreat surrounded by nature and within walking distance to the beach

Sprung from the subterranean streams that have watered the centuries’ old olive tree and tall bamboo grasses, Sanctuary Cove lying just above the beach has become an idyllic retreat. The organic nature of the property can be seen in the sculpted Mykonian architecture, in the grace and fluidity of hand-smoothen surfaces, the special hand-crafted marble sinks and bowls from Tinos, and the simple use of colour reflecting earth, air and sea.

On the ground floor, the curvaceous hallway leads into a really spacious open-plan living area with stunning fireplace, indoor dining area, and an excellently well-equipped kitchen at the far end. This is a delightful, airy space with double-height ceiling and plenty of windows with views out over the sea. From the main verandah situated just off this room, the entire panorama of Lia Bay unfolds before you.

The master bedroom is situated on the ground level. This has an ensuite bathroom with sunken bath perfectly placed to bathe whilst gazing over miles of deep, blue sea. Doors from the bedroom lead out onto a private verandah – a perfect place to take in the beauty of the surroundings. Curvaceous steps lead to the upper level where there is a wonderful, airy bedroom with 3 comfortable single built-in beds. The curvy bathroom has WC and shower, and both from bedroom and veranda there are spectacular views.

Below the main house is a covered verandah with doors that lead three guest bedrooms. The first bedroom features an impressive wooden, Mykonian four-poster double bed, and an extra single bed can be added. Through the hallway is a bathroom with shower,  a second bedroom with twin beds and a third bedroom with a double bed and ensuite bathroom. This covered verandah is an ideal spot to enjoy the beauty of the Mykonian sunsets.

The outside spaces are magical – to be discovered and unfolded via little pathways and through the natural planting. There is a marvelous outdoor dining area with built-in benches running the length of the walls with a pergola to provide shade, a great barbecue for preparing the food, and always the incredible views over Lia Bay. The pool terrace is below hidden amongst the natural bamboo – a calm, protected and quiet place to swim, sunbathe and enjoy the view of the sparkling sea. The ‘Loggia’ with its piles of cushions lining the built-in benches provides respite from the heat.

The villa has air-conditionining throughout, WIFI and a daily maid service. A cook can be arranged at an extra cost.

The property is located on Lia Bay – one of the quietest and most unspoilt areas of Mykonos, which for some years has been a designated area of ‘outstanding natural beauty’. There are two off the beaten track beaches to explore by foot with wonderful sand and surrounded by nature. Mykonos Town is not too far – about 15 mins by car. The village of Ano Mera with shops and tavernas is only about a 5 min drive away.
