The serene and gorgeous Villa Basileus is nestled on the hillside close to the fabulous Elia Beach on the cosmopolitan party island of Mykonos, a whitewashed paradise in the heart of the Cyclades. The villa is just 10km from Mykonos town and 3km from the stunning village of Ano Mera, the home of the beautifully restored, 16th century Panagia Tourliani Monastery.
 
Though Mykonos is ultra-popular with rich and famous partygoers, there is much more to this stunning island. It is profoundly beautiful, teeming with sugar-cube chalk-white buildings accentuated with vibrant blue doors and shutters, history and culture, picturesque windmills, boutique hotels, dazzling colourful flowers and stunning beaches. It is progressive with gay and nude beaches. Despite being commonly held to be one of the most expensive and exclusive Greek islands, Mykonos holds enduring appeal.
 
Villa Basileus is elegant and stylish with excellent, minimalist design. It sleeps 7 guests in 4 bedrooms. The villa prides itself on its soft environmental footprint. The decor is mainly white but with the focus on texture and intermittent, stunning architectural features. It is incredibly well designed, making the most of picture-postcard framed views.
 
The open plan living, dining and kitchen area on the ground floor is exquisite with fabulous furnishings, extraordinary light features and a stunning kitchen. The floating breakfast bar catches the eye and is just one feature that makes this fantastic villa special. The lounge windows frame the fantastic, brilliant blue sea and sky views which contrast vividly with the chalk-white walls. One of the stunning, immaculate bathrooms is on the ground floor.
 
On the lower level there is a ravishing, contemporary master bedroom with a kingsize bed and gorgeous ensuite bathroom. There are two further immaculate double rooms, one with a double bed and another with twins. There is also a simple yet elegant single room with a single bed though no windows. These sensational bedrooms share a delightful, modern bathroom. There is a small kitchenette on the lower level as well as a fun, shaded playground for children up to the age of 8.
 
Villa Basileus’ terrace is spectacular. Elegant, stylish and serene, it boasts a superb swimming pool, sun loungers, trendy outdoor furniture under a canopy and covered alfresco dining with an excellent barbecue. The blend of stark white walls and pebbles, warm stone walls and gorgeous blue and greens from the hillside and sea is sensational on the eye.
 
The villa offers daily cleaning and change of linen every two days. Extra services can be provided for a supplement including professional chefs, dry cleaning, transfers by luxury minibus or executive car, nanny services, yacht rental or even helicopter tours. You are guaranteed to enjoy a holiday to remember at Villa Basileus.

What you should know…

  • The smallest bedroom does not have any windows and is simple and minimal in design so you may want to use this for a child
  • Mykonos is known as the windy island, so be prepared.
  • You can walk down to Elia beach but the walk uphill is somewhat more of an effort, especially in the heat. Nominate a driver to come and get you.

Mykonos is talked about in the same breathy terms as Ibiza or Miami. It has been popular with A-list celebrities since the Fifties and Sixties when stars such as Brigitte Bardot and Jackie Onassis understood its attractions. It is upmarket, stunningly beautiful and offers chic hospitality. It is a party lover’s paradise, but it is also a whitewashed, glimmering Grecian gem waiting to be explored. There are stunning beaches, glamorous beach clubs, swanky restaurants, lush hillsides and azure waters.
 
Villa Basileus is situated on the hillside above the beautiful, idyllic Elia Beach. The beach is gorgeous with silvery-white sand, Mykonos’ longest sweep of sand and popular with families. The rainbow flag at the end of the beach marks this as an LGBT friendly stretch of sand. Platys Gialos Beach is 5km southeast of Mykonos Town and is wide and beautiful with many restaurants and bars. You can catch water taxis from Elia Beach to 7 other beaches. Other popular beaches are Psarou Beach, Paraga Beach, Paradise Beach which is the famous party beach with bars spilling out into the sand and dominated by eponymous clubs, Super Paradise Beach and Agios Ioannis Beach. There are 25 beaches in total! Platys Gialos and Kalafatis are particularly good for water sports.
 
Ano Mera is very pretty. You can meander through the delightful streets and get a feel for how people lived before the tourist boom. The Panagia Tourlaina and Paleokastro Monasteries are centuries old and definitely worth a visit. There are a few Tavernas around the village square as well as a supermarket, chemist etc.
 
After the beaches, Mykonos Town or Hora as it is known, is the second-biggest attraction of the island. The enchanting warren of narrow lanes, bedecked with colourful bougainvillaea and lined with picturesque churches, charming restaurants, quirky art galleries and chic boutiques, is somewhere you can meander for hours. There are interesting museums, including the Archaeological Museum and the Aegean Maritime Museum. Hora is a shoppers paradise with casual fashion, souvenirs and jewellery being sold in Little Venice, Greek designers on Matogliani and fantastic art in Mavrogenous Street. The open-air cinema is another delight of Hora.

Getting There

How to reach Mykonos island

There are two ways to reach Mykonos Island: either by flight or by ferry.

By plane: Due to the popularity of this island local and charter flights for Mykonos (JMK) are frequent. The airport is located just 2 km outside the town.

By ferry: Ferries to Mykonos New Port (JMK), in the Tourlos area, depart from Piraeus port everyday with great frequency in order to service the great number of travelers. The trip usually lasts from 2 to 6 hours but it gives the possibility to admire other Greek islands while on your way. You can easily book your ferry tickets using the link below or the booking engine.

They regularly visit the famous shipwreck of ‘Anna II’, the inspiring reefs in Kalo Livadi and Lis, the cave systems in Tragonisi as well as other diving sites around the island.
