“Beautiful location, impressive accommodation & very friendly...”

We had a wonderful week staying at the Lilac Windmill...a fantastic location with views right across the landscape to the sea - if you can force yourself to rise early then you will capture the sunrise which is almost as magnificent as the sunsets.

I should mention the specification of the windmill a little - most notably to my mind was the comfort and quality of the beds, pillows and sheets - it was a rare thing and made the trip feel that little bit more luxurious and frankly restful. The maid service was also spot on, and regular, and we always returned to a clean and tidy windmill - indeed the overall quality of the whole house was to my mind faultless.

As Santorini is a relatively small island everywhere is pretty much easy to get to - we especially liked Perissa for the beaches, found Fira too busy (crazy busy actually and why the island allows the number of cruise ships to dock and literally flood the place with tourists is beyond me). Oia is a must for evening walks, bars & restaurants, and of course the legendary sunsets.

I must mention Nikos and his mother - you couldn't meet a more friendly host/hostess - they obviously care passionately about their business - and guests - from the standards they have at the Windmills. Highly recommended !

“Lilac Villa is superb!”
Reviewed 18 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had the most wonderful week staying in the Lilac Windmill Villa, we could not recommend this place highly enough. The Windmill is beautifully decorated with lovely touches, furnishings, furniture and wonderfully equipped kitchen, everything there that you could wish for.
Nikos and his mother Fontina are the kindest and most hospitable hosts, and nothing is too much trouble for them, they are so helpful, happy to book restaurants and taxis mad a boat trip and places to visit of interest in the island. Fontini made us two wonderful dinners.
There are no Tavernas or bars close by, so a car or a quad bike are essential here.
It is the most wonderful place to completely chill out by the gorgeous pool. Thoroughly recommend this place!

“Simply sublime, accommodation and friendliness of owners were exceptional”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Being met at the airport with private driver to take you direct to the windmill is perfect start to holiday. Hire car arranged by Nikos was waiting for us at the accommodation, cheaper and a lot less hassle than using the traditional hire companies.
The accommodation was just perfect, everything has been thought of with lots of nice details such as coffee for the espresso machine and quality toiletries.
Watching sunrise over the Aegean from bedroom window is a great start to day followed by breakfast provided by the owners if required.
Accommodation is on quite side of Island which was just what we wanted. It takes about 15 minutes to drive to either of two main towns on Island so car is really essential.
Owners were so friendly and great hosts making sure we had everything we needed everyday without being intrusive. They both recommended and booked for us all the restaurants we used and somehow always managed to get us the best table to enjoy the famous Santorini views.
Honestly can't give any downsides of the accommodation and holiday unless you are looking for walking distance to bars, restaurants and beaches
