Elysium; Living Like a God on The Island of Mykonos

When you marry the magic of Mykonos with a place of happiness like this 9-bed sea-view villa – you remember why the Greek Islands are hailed as a place of gods and glory. Elysium sits on a golden bluff; in a panoramic position that echoes with notes of Mount Olympus as her infinity pool and terrace gazes out across shimmering shades of Aegean blue and the white washed party town of Mykonos.

Space to breathe takes on a new meaning in this stunning property – sitting on 4000 square meters of outside space and with a lavish estate of 700 meters, the world truly becomes your oyster. Everything at Elysium has been designed around the art of the good life – there is even a place in the port to dock your yacht when you return home after hoping the gauzy blue and white islands of Greece.

The architecture of Elysium has been beautifully inspired by the style of Ancient Greece. The exposed golden stone carries from the outside in, complemented by a minimalist pale color scheme and lashings of cool stone and glass.

The wide-open terrace is the first thing to ensnare your attention. Pulling you like a magnet into the salty sun-soaked surroundings of the great outdoors. Again, smooth stone ebbs into the azure hues of an infinity pool, loungers invite mezze platter afternoons beside the pool, and the jacuzzi and outdoor sound system invites the kind of late party nights that gives Mykonos its socialite reputation amongst her sister islands.

On sultry summer days, the 57 meters of glass doors disappears into the walls, cracking open the property like a pearl to blur the ideas between indoor and outdoor space. The lounge is gallery style gorgeous – with well-placed modern furnishings and an in-built fireplace into the exposed stone wall.

Gliding through the property and it’s the dramatic corridors of stone and glass that transport you back to ancient days. The wine cave is also a Bacchus like touch – inviting collectors to visit all the vineyards of Greece to celebrate their cellar.

The dining room is cool as a cucumber and with a handcrafted dining table and splash of art that truly makes an impact against such a neutral and soothing space. The kitchen too, is a Zen masters dream – inviting the joie de vivre of cooking to bloom to life against the pristine color palette. The cream stone floors throughout the house lend a coolness that welcomes warm feet on those sticky Mediterranean days.

Upstairs, the master bedroom steals the show with its elegant living space, stunning ensuite and its very own pool and jacuzzi for romantic dips after dark. Stunning sea-view windows ensure that mornings are bathed in light.

Beneath the main home – four exquisite guestrooms, with their own entrance are an enticing space for family and friends. Each room has its own remarkable sense of style – and all enjoy those sweeping sea vistas that make Greece a to die for destination.

This super sophisticated abode is an absolute dream for those looking to make Mykonos a more permanent feature on their yachting lifestyle calendar.
