Some 2km from the bustling Chora (aka Mykonos Town) lies the quiet, Instagram-perfect village of Ornos and its super active harbour that comprises a superb docking spot for luxurious yachts, fishing boats and everything in between. With its beach being the closest to the Mykonos capital with crystal waters and fine sand, it is no wonder Ornos is a much-favoured location for those that want to escape the hustle of the Chora, but still be within an arm’s reach from the vibrant night scene the island is so famous for. This is probably one of the reasons some of the most lavish villas are found here, lodging from VIPs to royals. Speaking of stylish and elegant holiday residences at Ornos, the following really stand out for their modern facilities, superior aesthetics, grandeur, unspeakable comforts and , of course, for providing pristine views of the coastline and the Aegean Sea.
Villa Emma (up to 9 guests – 5 bedrooms – includes service room)
Spreading over an area of 220m2, the three-level villa welcomes guests to magnificent vistas of the Ornos and Korfos bays. Natural elements, like stone and wood, made their presence strong throughout the impressive construction, blending harmoniously with traditional Mykonian architectural details and subtle modern notes. Exuding a sense of unparalleled sumptuousness and relaxation, the well-appointed vacation house offers plenty of lounging, seating, and dining areas, either by the pool or the roomy interior spaces. Modern amenities like the deluxe swimming pool, the fully-equipped kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, the bedrooms with private or en-suite bathrooms, the private balconies, and a service room all ensure a comfortable, polished, and classy stay.
Villa Grace (up to 12 guests – 6 bedrooms)
An equally opulent villa of about the same size as Villa Emma that offers affluent accommodation to larger families or groups of friends. It is also designed as a 3-storey property to ensure guests’ ultimate privacy and comfort, with large bedrooms featuring en-suite bathrooms, spacious living and dining outdoor and indoor areas, a guest room, fully functional kitchen, a laundry room, a warehouse, a washroom closet, private balconies overlooking the sea and shoreline, little corners to have some me-time, and a fantastic swimming pool with loungers and sun beds to bask under the sun and enjoy a palatial stay.
Villa Zoe (up to 6 guests – 3 bedrooms)
The smaller-in-size child of all villas highlighted before; Villa Zoe impresses with its regal look, characterised by stonewalls adorning its exterior, whitewashed interiors, and minimal décor all of which demonstrate Cycladic architecture the most delicate way. The refined (and, in some cases, even exotic) dining areas and sophisticated bedrooms (all with elaborate en-suite bathrooms) add to the overall class of the house and provide a regal sensation. Everything from the swimming pool and the beautiful garden to the laundry room and the fully-equipped kitchen has been well thought through down to the last detail to ensure guests a memorable stay that lacks neither luxuriousness nor opportunities to enjoy the bliss of living the unique Mykonos experience.
Two slightly larger exclusive villas at Ornos with an extra bedroom (compared to Villa Zoe) are Villa Athena and Villa Sophie that can steal your heart with their bougainvillea balconies, superb hilltop sea views, contemporary design, modern facilities, and the wealth of spots to relax, enjoy a meaty BBQ, soak up sun, or host a party!
