Seen from above, it resembles a rocky protrusion rising from the waves, covered with stony stretches divided by low stone walls into irregular plots. A bewitching island that, like so many in the Cyclades, hails from a mythological heritage and weathers the repeated attacks of an imperious sun all year long. An island where wheat has trouble growing on arid – yet paradisiacal – terrain whose extremities are marked with small idyllic coves lapped by the Aegean Sea; silhouettes well known to sailors who once saw them as indications that they were nearing the coast of Mykonos.Learn more
Rising from the coves are spotless, scorching beaches, often preceded by small grassy hills, like those surrounding Villa Agapi and raising it over the emerald waters that glitter far into the horizon. On these small hills stirred by sea breezes, the residence stands between a large swimming pool and a wooden terrace, and shelters an outdoor living room under overhanging eaves.
Inside, wood flooring runs the length of large white walls. Cascades of light penetrate through high bay windows and inundate the vast spaces where modern designer furniture mingles with the more traditional charm of local architecture, or the more rustic beauty of an impressive solid wood table that takes pride of place in the dining room.
In the bedrooms, beams hang over delicate bed linen and cross the ceilings to meet walls that are sometimes in natural stone, sometimes enchantingly white. From the windows, the gentle rolling of the Aegean Sea can be contemplated under the azure sky.
All around, captivating images of proud, seemingly timeless landscapes weave the charm of an island striking for its wild beauty. Seen from above, it resembles its peers in the archipelago. But lower down, it conceals and secretly preserves surprises that have survived the centuries.
