The Villa Dolce Vita is a member of Trésor Hotels and is considered to be one of the best villas on Mykonos, Greece. Purched on the crest of a hill overlooking a river and offering a panoramic view of the splendid Agrari Beach, the top end ultra sophisticated “Villa Dolce Vita” ensures privacy on a large plot of land at the end of a private road, away from noise and prying eyes. The area is wonderful and peaceful and fully protected from the winds. The privacy is unparalleled not only from the outsiders but within the villa itself as it consists of four separate buildings nested around a large pool in the beautiful garden.
The 600 sq.m villa (6500 sq.ft) is built on a large gated property of 10.000 m2 with uninterrupted views to Agrari Beach, one of the nicest beaches of Mykonos and is surrounded by a natural amphitheatre of hills. The house is designed so that each room enjoys the same exceptional views over the beach below and across the sparkling sea to the nearby island of Naxos, framed as if in a painting and fully protected from the island’s strong winds. This area is considered to be the favorite location of the connoisseurs of Mykonos where a distinguished few have made their luxury residences, just a 15 min drive from town.
“Dolce Vita” has been selected by the Architectural Digest (USA) as one of the top houses in the world in its category. The villa impresses in a subtle and sophisticated manner. The elegant Mykonian architectural lines of the exterior hide inside them spaces with special character built and decorated to the last detail with exquisite taste and hand-picked material. The golden brown marble on the floors, along with the antique furniture, the old chests, the wooden ceilings, the ceramic plates on the walls contrast against the white walls. The gorgeous lighting makes a difference giving the house a really aristocratic feeling, more like a luxury countryside lodge beautifully aged.
The villa is designed as a complex of four independent houses and contains 4 bedrooms + an attic + study room and a separate residence for the caretaker. The main house features a sheltered courtyard, entry hall with guest w.c., large living room with fireplace, dining room, spacious country kitchen, master bedroom with dressing area and bathroom, and adjacent study/office with private bathroom. On the upper level is an independent guest suite with bedroom (The “Guest House”), loft sitting room/sleeping space, kitchenette, bathroom and roof terrace. Adjacent to the pool there is a separate guest house (The “Pool House”) on two levels, with breathtaking views of the cliff, the beach and the isle of Naxos. On the ground floor is the main bedroom and the living room with an open kitchen, as if floating in the pool on top of the hills. Below the living room is a separate guest room with a bathroom, an independent entrance and a private courtyard. Finally, there is also a detached studio where the caretaker lives.
Terraces surrounding the house and swimming pool provide ideal space for entertaining, with numerous sitting and dinning areas. At the edge of the pool, overlooking the cliffs is a Jacuzzi. Steps lead down a lighted pathway from the poolside to a charming secluded patio carved out of the natural rocks, a quiet place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the natural surroundings.
The interior decoration of the house is warm and welcoming and includes many antiques, such as a large dining table, over two centuries old, brought from a French monastery, as well as a selection of fine original paintings.
