Superb villa rental in Mykonos with private pool
Set in a superb location overlooking the bay of Kalafatis, villa Penelope is a beautiful summer home that feels totally private although in reality it belongs to a small complex. This gorgeous four bedroom villa was originally built as a family summer home and remained untouched until recently. The owner recruited a team of famous Athenian architects who renovated the house to modern standards without spoiling its local character. The result was a striking multi-leveled bundle of whitewashed cubes that blend beautifully with the polished concrete floorings of the terraces that wrap around the structure. The edges of the walls have been curved, as local architecture demands, thus creating the illusion of an absence of straight lines that softens the effect of the harsh Cycladic landscape. At nighttime, hidden lightings transform the main terrace with its pergola-shaded lounge area and adjacent swimming pool. The interior is minimal in ornamentation, leaving the mind to relax and take in the beauty of the landscape. The décor is classic and elegant with touches of modern, reflecting the fusion of old and new that characterizes the house’s architecture. The palette is based on shades of white, beige and grey with only a few splashes of color in the form of odd wall-paintings or fabrics. The main entrance leads to a charming small living room, ideal for reading a book or chatting up with friends. A small staircase takes us to the upper level, an inviting semi-open space with stone-made partitions and wooden ceilings. The living room is comfortable and inviting, with thoughtfully upholstered sofas and large windows that let the sunlight in. The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped for home cooking. The dining area is simple yet stylish and overlooks the small living room of the lower level. The bedrooms are accessed through the foyer of the ground level, a minimally decorated space with a small sofa and a coffee table. All bedrooms are cozy and bright, with comfortable beds and beautiful en-suit bathrooms.
