Sitia, Lasithi Prefecture, Crete
A classic Cretan windmill design, which in our days rarely exists in some areas of the island. The inside space was cleverly converted into a 2 bedroom house. The windmill is built with local stone, fitting perfectly into the surrounding environment.

It is located in a 12,000 sq mt garden with a view over Sitia bay.
