Immerse yourself in the heart of Mykonos at Gaia. Tucked into the town of Mykonos with views of the old harbor, the five-bedroom villa is just steps away from dining, shopping and charming winding streets. A well-appointed terrace and private plunge pool invite relaxing at home, but there are several beaches within a short drive as well. Nestled into lush landscaping behind the villa is a pergola-covered outdoor living area with a built-in sectional, modern dining area that looks through to the ocean, and gas barbecue. Just beyond the pergola is a sunny area with chaise longues and daybeds and a plunge pool, plus an outdoor shower for post-swim rinses. In the evenings, flip on the satellite TV or sound system, post pictures of the day via Wi-Fi and retire to air-conditioned bedrooms. The traditional architecture and modern furnishings at Gaia make for a charming combination. Textured natural stone or classic white walls are a quiet background for the clean lines of a Parsons table and Panton S-chairs in the dining area, a plump slipcovered sectional in the living room and gourmet Smeg and Miele appliances in the understated, fully equipped kitchen. There are three bedrooms on the lower level of Gaia with independent entrances and two upstairs with sea views; all five have en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning. On each floor, there’s one bedroom with two twin beds and one bedroom with a double bed. As in the rest of the house, the bedrooms’ white walls and white or striped bedding make for bright, airy spaces with a subtle seaside feel. Just a 5-minute walk from the center of Mykonos town, the villa is also close to Mykonos Island National Airport, 2 miles away, Mykonos Tennis Club, 3 miles away, and the town of Ano Mera, 4 miles away. Plan to spend several days exploring the nearby beaches, from Grand Beach, 1 mile away, Agios Stefanos Beach, 2 miles away, and Mykonos Paradise Beach, 3.5 miles away, to Agios Sostis and Panormos Beaches, just under 4 miles away. Super Paradise Beach, 4.5 miles away, Kalo Livadi Beach, 6 miles away, Elia and the Kalafati Beaches, about 6.5 miles away, and Lia Beach, 7 miles away, are also within a short drive.
