The ferry from Piraeus takes four hours to reach its destination. Four hours of travelling over a foamy azure surface reflecting the limpid sky. Shafts of sunlight glitter over the waters while the waves of the Aegean Sea move slowly, almost imperceptibly. Already, the first islands in the archipelago can be made out on the horizon. At the doorstep of Cyclades, Paros and Naxos unveil, through heat hazes, the graceful lines of their silhouettes, but the boat, indifferent to their charm, continues on its way. It is heading for Mykonos.
At the port of Chora, it meets an old marina nestled in one of the many coves making up the shoreline. In the town, small white houses with blue shutters and flowers on their balconies are lined up along alleyways up to the stretches of land. In these Mediterranean landscapes, dry grassy prairies, interrupted by fields of wheat, vines and rows of fig trees, succeed one another up to the island’s coast where a traditional island villa overlooks a wild rocky inlet.
A swimming pool stands over the waters, alongside a Jacuzzi and near a pergola adjoining the residence. A summer living room is set out on a terrace sheltered by a wooden roof supported by natural-stone pillars. Bay windows provide access to the vast space making up the heart of the residence. Under massive wooden ceiling beams, rustic-style furniture is scattered between a few artisanal objects under more contemporary designer light fittings.
Delicate linen awaits in the bedrooms. In each of these uncluttered suites, deep tranquillity reigns between the tall white walls, as if to allow the distant, rhythmic sound of the backwash to be heard.
Every scorching summer day in the Cyclades heralds long and stunning sunsets. At this time of the day, everything is peaceful. And yet, all around the island, preparations are underway for festivities that will continue through the night until dawn.
