Mykonos, The Gorge

This bohemian Cycladic-style villa with pool sleeps up to 12 and overlooks the Aegean sea and Agrari beach. Spacious, lateral living and dining area space opens up to a wind-protected, shaded pergola area and a securely gated pool with sundeck. A tranquil retreat in bustling Mykonos, offering complete privacy, The Gorge residence is nestled within the stunning rocky landscape of the sought-after south of Mykonos. Nearby Agrari beach is an ideal relaxed family spot, with a large stretch of unspoilt unorganised sandy beach, as well as a naturally-shaded organised part with a restaurant, sun loungers, a playground and water sports. About a dozen other sandy beaches (most of them with beach clubs and restaurants) are within a 20-minute drive range. The residence is gated and sits in a private plot of 4,000sqm, with private parking for four cars. Adapted to holiday life with small children, the villa features custom designed child safety very rarely found in holiday villas, separating the shaded pergola area from the pool and infinity deck, without blocking the view of the stunning landscape and Aegean sea. It has a relaxed Myconian interior design and additionally features thoughtful touches such as a vinyl player/hi fi with a curated collection of records, a multi-lingual library collection of eclectic summer reads and cookbooks, as well as a hi-res projector for screening movies in the open-air or indoors. The residence is well stocked with toys and books for under-5s, plenty of pool toys and sand toys for the beach – as well as a high chair and two junior chairs. A seafront hiking trail to nearby Elia beach for the adventurous adds to the appeal, while Agrari beach is also connected by boat to a number of other beaches. Given its secluded position and quiet setting, the villa can also optionally serve as digital detox retreat by turning off Wifi and relying on the cabled internet connection instead. Guests receive a gift booklet with off-the-beaten track recommendations on where to swim, play, shop, eat and drink in Mykonos, annually updated by the owners.
