Panormos to this day remains one of the "hidden" areas of Mykonos thanks to its position on the northern side of the island and the rather unspoilt landscape - an "insider's treat" if one can use the term. Perched on the hills surrounding the homonymous beach, Panromos Retreat is a marvelous renovated Cycladic property set in the most natural area of Mykonos. The location makes the outstanding beachs of Panormos and Agios Sostis reachable within minutes while Chora remains at a little less than a 15 minute drive away, just enough to have the liberty to decide whether to join the vibrant night life of Mykonos or not.
The enjoyment of this particular area of Mykonos is the main theme driving the design of the outdoor area of Panromos Retreat, where the delightful infinity pool plays a main role in the villa's main terrace accompanied by comfortable sun beds and stone built summer couches, which allow to appreciate this feature to the fullest. A series of pergolas were conceived in various areas of the premises, all tastefully decorated and each with its own purpose. An extensive view over Lake Marathi and the sandy beach of Panormos completes the outdoor experience, combining relaxation with a panorama hard to find elsewhere on the island.
As far as architecture and interior design are concerned, Panromos Retreat is the perfect example of what a traditional Mykonian property can become in the thoughtful hands of discerning owners who show appreciation from the Cycladic architecture bringing a breath of fresh air to it through charming decor while preserving original features and structure. A great example is the structure of the property itself, where all bedrooms are independent one from the other allowing for privacy and mirroring the traditional conception of living space in Mykonian "Horo" style. Panormos Retreat was developed in three separate units that include a main house, a pool studio and a guesthouse.
The main house hosts the property's main living room boasting views over Panormos beach, the discrete and functional kitchen and the villa's master bedroom. Also part of the main house yet accessed externally is a guest bedroom with its own small outdoor living area covered by a wooden pergola. The pool studio is slightly detached from the main house, providing intimacy to this guest bedroom just a few steps above the pool terrace. A guesthouse was designed below the main property - accessed through a charming stone path - and for all means can be considered a small dependence thanks to the presence of a small outdoor dining area, a small living room and a kitchenette in addition to the fourth guest bedroom of the property. All bedrooms are tastefully appointed and feature modern comforts such as en-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning.
Panormos Retreat is set to become a favorite of those who wish to become accustomed to one the most beautiful areas of Mykonos and who have a passion for comfort enhanced by beautiful decor and discerning renovation of "an old classic".
