About Owner/Manager

I was born in Athens, Greece, studied Econ at Stanford in California and have been involved since then with property investments and development. Mykonos is my second home and I have been living there part time since 1990.

Owner/Manager purchased this villa in 2001

Why Owner/Manager chose Mykonos

Villa Dolce Vita has become the villa of choice for European and Middle Eastern royal families and for a good reason. Voted by Architectural Digest Magazine as one of the top villas in the world in its kind, the villa offers complete privacy in a spacious, refined environment with incredible views.

What makes this villa unique

The villas has been selected by the US Architectural Digest magazine as one of the finest villas in its category in the world. Since it was recently offered for rent it has hosted the royal families both from the Gulf and Europe who visit Mykonos as well as international billionaires.

For the refined connoisseurs of Mykonos, the southern part of the island has always been the location of choice. This is because it is protected from the strong northern winds, it is next to the nicest beaches and offers increased privacy. Of all the southern beaches, Agrari beach is not only the nicest (famous for its thick sand) but also the only one that is quiet and family oriented. Moreover, Agrari is strategically oriented by being just a 5 minute drive from the Ano Mera village (which offers all kinds of tavernas, supermarkets, small shopping centre etc) while less than 15 minutes from the town of Mykonos.

The location is unique in many ways:

• It offers from every corner of the house, even the back kitchen, direct views to the center of the beach below, overlooking a small cliff. There are many houses in Mykonos with sea view, fewer with a beach view and very few that offer this view of the beach, framed as if in a painting.

• The land is located on a small cliff with rocks of unique character, overlooking a small river that meets the sea below.

Specifications and exterior spaces

The size of the land, equal to 10,000 sqm. is more than twice the average size of plots on the island of 4,000 sqm and offers absolute privacy, a large welcoming space and large southern gardens overlooking the beach.

The villa is not built with commercial specifications. The finest materials have been used including the unique marble that decorates all the floors and the old bricks that surround the exterior space.

The interior caters to the refined guests who appreciate total privacy, unpretentious yet luxurious decoration and large spaces. The villa is de

Incredible Villa in Mykonos

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Dolce Vita was truly a once in a lifetime experience. The villa is situated amongst a stunning rocky landscape with incredible views of the sea from every room! My husband and I stayed in the villa for our honeymoon, but because the villa sleeps 12, we invited some friends to join us midway through our stay. What was wonderful about this is each room essentially has its own living space so it is completely possible to have private time while staying with 10 other people! It was simply wonderful. There is even a lovely young woman who comes to the house every morning to clean and do your laundry! The pool is gorgeous and overlooks Agrari Beach, which is a 2-minute drive from the house. We found Agrari to be one of the best beaches in Mykonos because it is quiet, not crowded, and the rental fee for the beach chairs are the most reasonably priced on the island! Dimitris (the owner) was friendly, helpful, and speaks English, French, Italian and Russian! He arranged services for us such as a private chef to come to the house and make dinner one night (on the property’s own outdoor bbq), as well as spa services such as mani, pedi, and massage. We took full advantage and the prices were reasonable. The house is also a 5-minute drive to Ano Mera and 10-minutes from the main town, so it was easy to go out at night or grab something from a store. The entire experience felt like we were in our own personal paradise. I would come back here in a heartbeat and will recommend it to any of my friends looking to stay in Mykonos!

Wow! Out of this world and serious value for money

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Dolce Vita was a dream come true. First, the house and facilities felt like they were out of a movie romanticising authentic and very comfortable Greek life. The view at day and night was surreal, a perfectly framed view of the sea and of Agrari Beach. A total feeling of seclusion and being in nature.

After the first night, we already felt wound down from our stressful jobs and were mostly able to stay off work. The excellent wifi connection meant that work time was minimal and efficient.

The pool was wonderful and meant that we spent significant time enjoying the villa and reconnecting, it also allowed us to invite friends for lunches, dinners using the amazing outdoor barbecue, making them envious, even though they had rented pricier villas. I'm afraid we'll be competing with them with regards to which of us rents it first in 2018 :-)

Aside from the view, the location was ideal: a short 15 minute drive to town, a shorter drive to the absolutely charming village of Ano Mera (outstanding restaurants there and a feeling of true Greece) and very easy to get to from the airport.

We are very grateful for the host who was always helpful and for the wonderful caretaker. It was our home for a week, we look forward to coming back!

Ideal retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were guests at Dolce Vita during the busy peak season yet if felt so serene there. The property is large and gated and at the edge of a cliff so there is also a surreal feeling especially when the sun goes down and the rock formations around the villa assume a redish color.

It was ideal that the villa consists of separate houses around the pool and the large common space, giving us total privacy not only from the outside world but among us also

The host, Dimitri, was extremely accomodating and a very interesting person to know. Dimitri we thank you for all the help and for the great dinner invitation during our last night!

Its better than the photos!

  • 5 of 5

We had high expectations when we arrived to the villa but we were in for a surprise. The Villa is even better than the photos. When we first entered the villa we were astounded by the view of the beach below as if in a picture frame. We spent 10 days there and from the first day it felt like home, keeping in us in. We very much loved matching movies in the extremely large and yet cosy living room with very high ceilings with thick wooden breams. The BBQ area is also a gift and we made very good use of it.

An experience to remember

  • 5 of 5

Dolce Vita in reality is better even than in the photos. You have the feeling that you are flying right on top of a beach above a river and surrounded by rocks of unique beauty.

The views are amazing from every corner of the house and the interior and exterior spaces are huge. We had an amazing time in complete privacy, yet right next to a wonderful beach, a 5 min drive from Ano Mera village where we had often great dinners and less than 15 min drive to the town of Mykonos.
