Sea breezes gently brush against the village’s white roofs, shielded from the invigorating Aegean Sea by a few hills. On the island of Mykonos at the heart of the Cyclades, the village of Ano Mera stands peacefully between a church, its 16th century cloister, and Paleokastro Monastery.Learn more
Just a short distance from the town, we can spot, at a distance, Villa Kara’s white walls and façades in local stone facing the sea, overlooking the scenery from one of the island’s hills. In the middle of grounds spanning 4500m2, this three-storey residence enjoys astounding calmness enhanced by a peaceful view of the coast, accessible by foot, and the neighbouring islands. Near the swimming pool, sundecks brush sides with shady terraces whose outdoor lounge and dining area are invitations to conviviality.
Inside the residence, traditional Cycladic architecture joins forces with natural brightness to light up the villa. The entrance hall with a light well opens up to arcades that precede the living areas: a double living room with comfortable couches and a fireplace adjoin a spacious dining room next to a fully equipped kitchen. White walls, visible beams, sculpted colonnades, wooden furniture and colourful decorative touches including history-laden objects and artworks: through these, Villa Kara navigates between authenticity and contemporary lines.
Spread out over the upper floors as well as beside the pool, a studio, a suite and five bedrooms make up the sleeping quarters of this palace in summery colours. Pink, white, blue, green and yellow take turns to dress up each of the five bedrooms in lively tones, contrasted by the white walls of their accompanying pure-lined bathrooms. Meanwhile, the studio holds a double bedroom and a kitchenette while the suite offers a lounge and night quarters that open out directly to the swimming pool. Each of these spaces offers direct access to the outdoors: shady or sunny terraces, balconies and gardens are easily reached.
An ideal stopover for savouring the serenity of the Cyclades or for exploring archaeological remains, Villa Kara, between sea and land, would no doubt have met the approval of the legendary King Minos.
