One of the most remote, yet well-protected against the Meltemi winds, beaches with astounding raw beauty is Agios Sostis, in the north of Mykonos, some 8km from the island’s capital. Named after an old church that dominates the bay, this region is an excellent option for those looking for isolated coves, quiet retreats, and private spots to enjoy the sea, the sun, and the golden sand free from clothes. The beach is also home to some of the most luxurious accommodation choices, like the exclusive villas Blanche and Joan that ensure guests’ peace and quiet while providing superb views.
Villa Blanche (330m2 – up to 10 guests – 5 bedrooms)
This elegant two-level vacation home allures with its Cycladic architecture and splendid views of the Aegean Sea. Modern and traditional elements combine in perfect harmony, creating an inviting space lacking no contemporary amenities or comforts. Tasteful and spacious living and dining areas and a fully functional kitchen occupy the lower level, along with a stylish en-suite master bedroom with sweeping panoramas of the coastline and endless blue of the horizon. The top floor comfortably hosts an extra set of bedrooms with two bathrooms, plus a guest house with a double bedroom spanning superb seascapes, a fully-equipped kitchen, and a chic bathroom. As for the gorgeous, massive terrace, it is the perfect space to host a big party, share a meaty BBQ with friends or family members, or simply relax by the pool area and take in the mind-blowing vistas.
Villa Joan (330m2 – up to 12 guests- 6 bedrooms)
Sitting right on top of the hill above Agios Sostis beach, Villa Joan is a jewel indeed. From its luxurious exteriors to its lavish interior areas, everything is exceptionally well thought through with guests’ comfort, privacy, and opulence in mind. Exuding an unsurpassable sense of relaxation and sumptuousness from its every inch, it dazzles with its bougainvillea vines, beautiful architecture following traditional lines, and heart-stopping views.
Arranged in three levels to ensure maximum privacy for all of its 12 guests, it features a large, fully-equipped kitchen, spacious, open-plan dining and living rooms, and an en-suite master bedroom offering magnificent sights to the surrounding natural landscape – all occupying the middle level. The upper level hosts a total of three bedrooms (two double bedrooms and one with two single beds) – all enjoying unobstructed views to the sea while ensuring guests have their own private space – that can effortlessly lodge a family with kids. As for those of you that wish for absolute seclusion, the lower level will please them greatly with its private entrance and its own bedroom, kitchenette, bathroom, and living room.
Stepping outside to patio area, the outdoor lounge and pool area come with plenty of shaded dining nooks and entertainment zones, offering a wealth of options, from having a BBQ and swimming under the bright Mediterranean sun, to savouring your drink or morning coffee, and rejuvenating your mind, soul, and body, accompanied by the sound of the waves gently smashing against the shoreline!
