Mystique by Mary Kavagia & Frank Lefebvre:
“With a typical island-style design that preserves the nature in a climate of unabashed luxury, Mystique opened its doors on May 2007, built in the world’s most beautiful scenery.
Located on Oia’s most famous cliffs with dazzling views of clear blue equatorial waters towards the volcano and the Aegean Caldera.
Eighteen suites and villas in a landscape of more than 2000 square meters (21,528 square feet) provide a sensorial experience of Santorini in surroundings of understated elegance.
Guests may experience an outdoor infinity-edge pool, the “Aura” Bar an alluring, alfresco venue by the pool, that serves a blend of favorite snacks, fruit smoothies, afternoon teas and cocktails with panoramic views to the sea and the Caldera, the “Charisma” Gourmet Restaurant for open-air dinning with a mouthwatering menu that highlights an eclectic mix of the freshest local ingredients seasoned with regional flavors and the “Secret” Wine Cave, a dramatic wine cellar with the most rare and indigenous wine selection.
Interior decoration is made by French designer, Frank Lefebvre of Bleu Nature company.
Mystique has been a complete restoration of a 30-years old existing hotel that was accomplished with respect to the traditional architecture. The architect kept the exterior face of the old hotel, but changed the colors from flashy white to creamy beige. She also changed the surfaces by destroying all edges and creating curves giving a more plastic, sculpted approach. The interiors were carefully redesigned giving more space to the bathrooms and making bigger windows in order to bring more light in. The ceilings have been made higher and all bedrooms have been positioned towards the sea view in order for guests to experience the famous Santorini views.
All accommodation is lovingly handcrafted from wood and local stone.
Interior decoration is made by French designer, Frank Lefebvre of Bleu Nature company. Bleu Nature is a wondrous exploration of driftwood, a free-spirited, untamed material. The design of the material serves as material for design. Mother Nature and the designer create a language in which to explore the nature of luxury and harness the elegance of simplicity. Frank Lefebvre, a nature-inspired designer, has diversified its collections of crafted items and furniture, exclusively for Mystique and incorporated more complex materials, refined its designs and expanded its creative team. As a result, he created interiors of effervescent style, brimming with youthful energy, where nature-inspired design meets in harmony with traditional architecture and the most up-to-date technology.
