Villa Kara / Kounoupas
The luxury Villa Kara, a striking modernist retreat in the countryside of Mykonos, is set on an elevated position that affords sweeping vistas of the countryside and the sea beyond. This villa is the perfect hideaway for a relaxing, laid-back vacation far from the frantic crowds that flock the island during high season. Tasteful and manicured to the detail, the 3 bedroom residence is part of a 5-villa complex, divided in two main buildings allowing space for an infinity pool that seems to lunge toward The Valley below. Bamboo-shaded pergolas have been fitted to add a beach-chic vibe and provide shade for the outdoor lounge and dining areas, while leaving them exposed to the views.
Moving inside the house, the interior's modernist aesthetic blends seamlessly with the minimal principles of Cycladic design. Modernist forms, open spaces and an abundance of natural light are the key themes in the main living area. There is no need for ornamentation -the facade of the room boasts tall glass doors that capture magnificent views of the landscape. The stark white palette is interrupted by bold touches of black. Designer furnishings are set against a backdrop of materials that are natural yet polished -stone, wood, concrete. In the bedrooms, the absence of colour and clutter creates a soothing atmosphere and brings focus to the views that are framed by the large glass doors.

Mykonos is a destination for all types of people. From jet setters to college students and families, Mykonos is Greece's most well-known and popular island and the people you see are from all walks of life, from every country. Everybody goes there, from Keith Richards to famous politicians, designers, newscasters, basketball players and coaches, kings, queens and commoners all make Mykonos their first choice in holiday destination. This is the Ibiza of Greece!
A beautiful island in the Cyclades, which looks just like the postcards: white little houses with flowers and blue windows and doors, hand painted streets, windmills, pigeon keepers, chimneys, lots of little churches and wonderful restaurants and cafes. The nightlife is very developed and you will see a lot of eccentrics especially at night time. It is a glamorous place for the rich and famous, which is painfully clear to whoever has a look at the prices on the menus.
Mykonos - according to mythology - was where Heracles killed the giants. The rocks around the island are supposedly their corpses!
