“Lilac Villa is superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 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”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 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

“Best Place on Santorini”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

It isn't on the Caldara side of the island but don't let that stop you from staying in these beautful Windmills. You are 10 to 15 minutes from either Ia or Fira. You have a secluded beach that you can walk to. Sit outside in the evening after returning from viewing the sunset in IA with a bottle of Santorini white wine and watch the stars. Lay in bed in the morning to witness a beautiful sunrise. Our host was lovely giving us the best tips for enjoying the island so we didn't waste our time in tourist traps. You must try the eggplant, the Santorini wine, the fava beans and tomatoes. We shopped at the local market for casual breakfast items, juice, yogurt and cereal. If you want a unique place to stay that is off the tourist lines, book a Windmill Villa!!

“A quiet gem in a marvelous location away from the caldera caldera”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 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.
