“A quiet gem in a marvelous location away from the caldera caldera”
Reviewed 14 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

As usual I write this as a mature five star independent traveller with my wife.This is an excellent location for those tired of the edge of the caldera with its bustle crowds and hot afternoon sun.Most if not all who stay at the Windmills have their own transport and can get from one end of the island to the other in half an hour.Nicks mother Fontini lives in the blue windmill and she or Nick is on hand to help on any matter . Importantly the windmills(lilac or green) are sheltered from the usual islands wind due to their layout.This property is highlyrecommended.

“the most beautiful place I have ever stayed in.”

person found this review helpful

The owners went way out of their way to make us feel welcome . Nikos' mother met my cab in the driveway at 11pm. The decorating is priceless and in an old windmill. Our own private pool with views of the ocean. Very clean and spotless. I really cannot say enough about what a wonderful stay it was. You do need a car but day trips are never far.

“Original, Romantic, fall in love in Santorini”
Reviewed 26 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Nikos you and your family have built one of the most original place to stay in the world! Your windmills are one of the most romantic place on earth to spend a fantastic vacation.
Your sister welcome lunch was delicious and we felt immediately at home.
We loved Santorini ! What a crazy island, we realized only on site that it's a giant sleeping volcano!!! terrifying and terrific :)
Best places for us Restaurant on the black beach, and beach club eros beach, delicious food!
In Oia best restaurant Roka, hidden , impossibile to find without your kind help !
Rent a quad! Soooooo funny, 300cc, powerful.
A warm hug from Sardinia Italy, we are back at work in the lighthouse now!
Thank you forever.

“Fabulous accommodation in an awesome setting”
Reviewed 17 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We stayed at the Lilac Windmill in July as the last stop on a seven month trip round Europe, and could not have picked a more peaceful, serene or comfortable place to stay. It was absolutely wonderful.

The setting with views over the Aegean from the pool and windmill is lovely, the accommodation itself could not be faulted. Our hostess Fotini was extremely friendly and helpful, and cooked us a lovely evening meal on the day that we arrived.

It was a wonderful end to a great trip, and I would recommend the Lilac Windmill to anyone who is looking for some where special and different to stay.

“A holiday to remember for a lifetime...”
Reviewed 30 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Words cannot describe how beautiful these Windmills are. We have both travelled extensively across the world and would rarely choose to visit the same place twice. But these Windmills are absolutely wonderful and we will definitely be revisiting.

The peacefulness and tranquility that surrounds the Windmills allowed us to escape in to another world within an hour of arriving.

The sunrise views are spectacular. The privacy. The location up in the north was perfect. Oia (where all the famous Santorini photos come from!) is just 15 mins up the road. Fira is 15 mins in the other direction with banks, supermarkets - anything you need really.

But the one thing that brings everything together is Fotini and her son Nikos who are so very accommodating, sociable and willing to give us the finest recommendations for a week on this beautiful island.

The Greek Culture and cuisine in Santorini is truly touching. The island is quiet too - so if you want to escape and grab some private chillout time with someone special or with a group of friends - you should just do it. Absolutely magical.

Right...enough from us! It was stunning.
