Villa Drakothea ( www.drakothea.com ) is one of a kind, stunningly beautiful property and offers an extraordinary setting for a dream vacation. The distinctive combination of breathtaking views, artistic elements, modern amenities, privacy, luxury and comfort makes this villa an exceptional vacation spot.
This mystical Mykonos hideaway provides a matchless place so special and alluring with its panoramic views that your spirit will be inspired and invigorated.
It is is carved on a hill in a beautiful, peaceful spot, on the south east side of the island of Mykonos , framed by beautiful country side . Due to the amazing location this extraordinary villa offers breathtaking, panoramic 180 degree eagle’s eye views of the Aegean Sea and numerous other islands (Naxos, Paros, Ikaria, Donusa) as well as the unexploited terrain of Mykonos past. And each day starts with a spectacular sunrise . Had it not been build on the site of a previously small ‘’goat house’’ there is no way this 10 year old property would have been given planning permission , particularly since it’s location was declared of status of exceptional, natural beauty and all development have been stopped all around this area.
The panoramic and uninterrupted views coupled with the absolute privacy is what sets this property apart of any other on the island.
Drakothea is a world-class property where traditional Cycladic design blends naturally with contemporary luxury and is complimented with the services and amenities of a 5 star resort . Here you can soak up the most amazing views in an atmosphere of peace , comfort and tranquility .
Due to its majestic location, one has the feeling of floating over the Aegean, with Lia Bay at your feet and the secluded Tigani Beach minutes from your property. Panoramic , spectacular views are enjoyed from everywhere in this property , both inside and outside. The rustic , organic design emphasizes the views and make you feel one with them .
Villa Drakothea has been published in major Architectural and travel magazines such as AD ITALIA, THE HOUSE BEAUTIFUL, TOWN AND COUNTRY TRAVEL,MADAME FIGARO, CONDE NAST TRAVELER (In the August 2009 issue the villa's pool was voted as the 5th sexiest pool in the world by the editors of the magazine..!!!).
Some places sit so naturally in their grounds that you just assume they have been there for ever . This is the case with Drakothea . Build a decade ago , the white and stone, organic villa seems like one with the extraordinary nature that surrounds it.
The villa blends uniquely into the rocky topography of its hillside setting and the impressive 20m long infinity pool, which hugs the entire length of the main house, tantalizes your senses into believing you are swimming into the crystal clear blue waters below. The infinity pool is a perfect lap pool and the sand and rocks around it make it look like a natural lagoon. A beautiful lounging area in one of pool’s edges offers sublime relaxation and more dramatic views
A shaded dinning area , perfect for a long Greek lunch offers more spectacular views.
There are sun beds and really numerous lounge areas all across the front and the sides of the villa , so guests can break off into small groups or enjoy their private own space.
The property offers extreme privacy, impeccable grounds and it is constantly cooled by the Aegean breezes and bathed all day long by the world famous Cycladic sunlight....
DRAKOTHEA combines traditional architecture ( Mykonian country style ) with the luxury of modern conveniences, elegance and comfort. The complex consists of two buildings, the main and the guest house, and an impressive infinity-edge lap pool with considerable depth ( 20 m long and 3 m deep ) and rocks in and around it. This swimming pool is specially designed to be an architectural feature!
You are offered many living levels with such visual excitement that you become a part of its spirit. The Villa will dare you to decide where your favorite view is to relax and enjoy the Aegean.
The villa's exterior is very spacious, with a lot of lounging areas around the pool, 3 outside sitting areas under traditional style pergolas and a stone oven/barbeque. Elegant grounds, in traditional Mykonian style, nestle in secluded walled gardens. Olive trees, bushes, shrubs and cacti among the rocks, form beautiful landscapes. The deck is equipped with elegant ,wood furniture and 2 very large day beds with colorful and beautiful materials .
The villa's interior is just as unique as its exterior. It embodies that Greek style beach aesthetic at its best : whitewashed walls , driftwood and vintage furniture, beautiful stone and rock formations and luxurious hand made materials. But whereas this can sometimes look a little clichéd , here it feels luxe and modern and right into place. From the kitchen, to dinning area, to the living room, to all bedrooms and bathrooms, the style, the design and function is very consistent and harmonious. High ceilings , beautifully design touches and generously spacious bedrooms and bathrooms create a show – offy grandness that adds to the dramatic views of the Aegean that they are offered from every corner of Drakothea’s grounds .
When you enter the gate you know right away you are staying somewhere pretty spectacular . The beauty is never ending . Everything in this villa is the very best . All five bedrooms are big ,all of them are facing the sea and having spectacular views, all of them have balconies or terraces . Everything bathed in light , these are bedrooms to linger in . It goes without saying that all five have en suites and 4 of them boast the additional dramatic effect of ceiling colored glass openings that allow rays of colored light to come in all day long.
One bedroom is in the lower section of the main building with direct access to the pool . Two more bedrooms are on the first floor and the fourth is in a guest house attached to the main building but it has its own entrance and private garden .Fifth is a separate suite with spectacular features and views and a unique architecture !
The open plan has a dinning and kitchen area and an impressive round living room with an imposing fire place and many beautiful and well chosen antique pieces that can keep your interest throughout your whole stay although given the views , eyes are inevitably drawn to the dramatic scenary outside.
The blend of Mykonian old charm using stone and found wood create visual excitement. All major rooms open to a patio, balcony or terrace, where one can dine, sunbathe or lounge undisturbed. There are fire places in all indoor and bedroom areas and as well a very functional central heating, making the house very comfortable even during the winter months.
Load-bearing stone walls whitewashed with rough surfaces, floors out of stone or colored cement, build-in furniture, corridors carved into rocks,sheer hanging drapes, the use of old doors through out the house create a very elegant and cozy atmosphere.
Drakothea is tastefully decorated with antiques and art pieces and special attention paid to every detail. The lighting both in the day, but also at night seems almost magic, unexpected and dramatic and makes the house very cozy and romantic and the perfect stage for entertaining.
This is a house with intimate charm, elegance and style, without compromising the needs of a modern, contemporary house. It is a villa where you can lounge and relax away from it all ( the most private location on the island although a 10 min car drive will get you in the middle of everything a cosmopolitan island like Mykonos has to offer) .
Or you have the choice of a lot of things to do :
Beautiful hiking is offered around the property , many small totally private beaches are a 15 min hike away.
The best yoga and pilates instructors on the island are a phone call away , as are massage and beauty therapists. Many guests request a chef and the well equipped kitchen and a beautiful stone build outside BBQ can create great culinary experiences.
A local boat man can take you around the cost line for some more unforgettable experiences.
While it feels very rural the villa is just 15 min away from the airport and 20 min from the main town. Several beaches are just down the road and some of the most beautiful beaches of the island are just a short drive from the property . Guests can take their pick of the beach side tavernas and restaurants near by or just ask the chef to serve you under the trees and next to the pool. Also the village of AnoMera is only 5 min drive and it serves up remarkably good local food . The produce is local and the prices very inexpensive.
Immerse yourself in elegance and sophistication and create beautiful memories in a unique retreat which is designed to offer you an extraordinary blend of exclusivity , comfort and enchantment . Relax and sip a cocktail by the pool and drink in the captivating views and take part of this exciting experience that a stay at Drakothea is. Only trouble is that this villa is so enticing , you might not see too many other things because you do not want to leave this magical paradise . After all the best luxury in our days is tranquility, privacy and peace and the dream vacation starts here!!

ANTONIOS purchased this Villa in 2000
Why ANTONIOS chose South Aegean
I was born in Crete but i remember ever since i came to Mykonos for the first time i fall in love with the island and its beauty. Its an exciting place and not only because of its absolutely vibrant night life but because it offers possibilities for every life style or type of vacation you want to have.
What makes this Villa unique
The uniqueness of the location with the amazing uninterrupted views of the Agean and various Islands, and the privacy that the villa offers to its guests makes it one of the very few places in the world that can provide all that together. Plus i personally take care of everything that can make the vacation of the guests very memorable and with a very special personal touch. A 24/7 personal concierge service gives you access to all that the island can offer and you will enjoy Mykonos not as a tourist but as a local who knows all the well kept secrets and beauty of the island.

Paradise Found - Stunningly Perfect
My family traveled to Mykonos for my 50th birthday. With my Masters Degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management, my career with Small Luxury Hotels and the Four Seasons, I am a very discerning guest and most often disappointed. I honestly would not have changed any aspect of our stay at Drakothea. Not one detail.
First of all, it is absolutely stunning. The property is perched atop a mountain with a breathtaking view of the sea. Every room is beautiful and unique -- we had a party of 7 people, and it took my husband and I a long time to select the room we wanted because they are all so special. It was not only luxurious but also comfortable, with every meticulous detail attended to. Not only are the unique pieces of art throughout the property, the entire home is a work of art with beautiful and elegant architectural designs throughout. There are endless places to curl up and read a book or nestle down with your significant other or just leisurely lounge with your family playing games or just bask in the sun.
Antonis, the owner, is the most phenomenal host we have ever had. He was literally there from the moment we arrived, greeting us at the airport, and was our private 24-hour concierge. He arranged a private chef to prepare divine meals for us, chartered an authentic Greek boat to take us around the island (the captain prepared fresh fish caught that morning over a grill at a private beach!), and was able to get us tables in the impossible to book restaurants. Everyone on the island knows (and loves) Antonis!
While the island was alluring, it was very difficult to leave Drakothea. We ended up staying home half the time as there was everything we wanted at our villa. It honestly felt as though this was our home -- not a place we were renting. One of the most difficult days was the day we departed... My family is already eagerly planning our return.. we will absolutely be back to "our" Greek villa. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a trip of a lifetime!
you and your family are the kind of guests we love having here in Drakothea . As you mentioned we want this property to feel not like any other vacation place but a real home !
We are very happy you all had such a wonderful time and you are welcome back anytime you wish . Your good aura is now for ever part of the charm of Drakothea and thank you for this!
Unbelievably Gorgeous Villa
Words will fall short in describing this enchanting villa. Our family and friends who had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful place are all well traveled. We all agreed that this was, by far, the most unique, breathtaking accommodation that we had ever experienced. And it was truly more than an accommodation.....it was a once in a lifetime experience! There are so many little details that went into the design of this home and we were constantly finding new things to ooh and aah over. And the many outdoor living spaces, all over looking the water and gorgeous infinity pool, were so comfortable and gave you different views and so many options for dining, socializing or cuddling up with a book. Antonios, the owner, took such good care of us. He arranged car rentals, a wonderful boat trip complete with a barbecue on the beach, and a chef to come to the villa who prepared an amazing Greek feast! We all loved Antonios, the manager George, and the housekeeper and chef, Joanna. They went above and beyond to make everything just perfect. We want to go back just so we can see them all again! If you want to stay in paradise and experience the best vacation of your life, the Drakothea is the place for you!!
It is such a pleasure to hear that our guests enjoy our beautiful villa so much!
Vacations are becoming so important part of everyone's life and we all deserve to treat ourselves to the best places and experiences . Our guests get a very personalized concierge service to fit their needs and likes and we build personal relations with them and many times consider them real friends .
Thank you Teresa because you and your group of family and friends were some of the best guests we could have! Definitely you are welcome back any time!
Whimsical and playful with stunning, powerful views. It will awaken even the saddest of hearts.
Every detail carefully catering to ones desires. Forget the Titanic this is where you come to feel like the king of the world.
you are indeed the king of the world!
Thank you for the nice words!
THE quintessential Greek Island house in the Cyclades – simply AMAZING!!
We were a small party of 6 with two kids visiting before the high season. The house was exactly as stunning as it appears in the photos. We had family with us who had never visited Greece and staying in Mykonos at a property designed in that gorgeous white flowing Island design just added to the magic for their Visit.
The property manager is just down the road, which if you have ever had a problem with a Vacation rental, finding someone to help in a quick manner is huge benefit. The caretaker George and his wife were so friendly and made everyone (especially our young children) feel like family. Fortunately we never had any issues, but the comfort of knowing they were close really added to the relaxed nature of the setting.
In addition to being an amazing house, the interior decor was so eclectic and varied that you found yourself looking around and finding strange new things in each little nook and cranny. Not necessarily something you require in a vacation rental, but it makes it so much more comfortable and homey than the typically spartan homes and villas elsewhere in Europe.
The pool is indeed deep and actually long enough that some of the family was able to do some short laps in the morning. The water was a little chilly being April, but our fearless children dove in everyday with complete disregard. The shallow area is great for sunning or for those with small children. There are so many places to stretch out throughout the different levels of the property that a large group could spread out with plenty of extra room. My wife and I spent most evenings sipping Greek wines sitting on the large outdoor lounger overlooking the Aegean. Amazing!
Lastly, getting to and from the property to town and various beaches and restaurants was never more than a 15-20 minute drive. For us the seclusion on the southeast side of the Island was a plus (including semi-private beach at the end of the road) and is a must if you want to avoid any summer Cruise ship crowds. Mykonos is an amazing place for not just partying but also for families. We would (and will ;-) come back anytime! Thanks again Antonis!
Very glad you had a great time staying with us! Drakothea is an absolutely unique property and we are very happy having guests that appreciate this.
Thank you very much
my warmest regards
Stunning, Amazing, Every detail thought of, Incredible Pool, A Deep end?!?! Wow
The was perfect. I'd recommend it to anyone. The pool was so amazing. It was so fun to have a deep end and a splash pad for the kids.
The house is so beautiful and the amount of detail in every little thing will make your own house seem vanilla. Great Job Antonios!
Dear Bryan and family
thank you for the nice words and i am very happy that you all had such a great time . Your family was delightful and you are welcome back any time!
Villa Drakothea is a unique property and as you mentioned every detail is thought of to make our guests have a comfortable and relaxing vacation!
Unique architecture , spectacular views
Really a unique villa in every way . The architecture is like you have never seen , every day there is a surprise or something new you can notice . Elegant and with attention to every detail its like you are staying in fairy land ! The views are spectacular and totally unobstructed , very private location, peaceful and relaxing as we wanted our vacation to be . Still a short drive will get you to all the action on the island but coming back to the villa was always the highlight of our stay. A very friendly owner , Antonios and his team George and Efi were all very attentive to our needs and their suggestions were spot on . And you could not meet nicer people ! This villa is very impressive and made our Greek vacation perfect!
Dear Josephin thank you for the nice review but mainly thank you for being such a great guest . We are all very happy that you are now part of Villa Drakothea's family of guests!!
