Commanding awesome views of the volcano and caldera from its majestic hilltop location, Michaela Residence is a peaceful 5-bedroom villa ideal for up to three couples or a family. The centerpiece of the villa is a private courtyard, which looks out to sea, and out at the back you’ll find an intimate alfresco dining area overlooking the old Castle of Akrotiri.
Although the inner rooms are extremely comfortable and a sanctuary to retreat to when the sun gets too hot, you’ll probably spend most of your time outdoors. The softly illuminated infinity pool extends a cool invitation any time of the day or night and there are various resting places from which to soak up the sunshine and beautiful views. An elegant lounge area, shaded by a pergola with fluttering white drapes, is a particularly atmospheric place to gather and chat by candlelight in the evenings. Stairs lead to another large terrace, the perfect spot to absorb unrivalled sea views. And if you love the tang of wood smoke, fire up the wood oven for a delicious family barbecue.
