Milos windmill

Milos island, Cyclades, Greece


The ground floor of the windmill is a kitchen-dining room, with a table for 6 (or 8 at a pinch) and sofas around the edge. It’s equipped with stove / oven, fridge, sink (hot and cold water), filter-coffee machine and adequate cutlery and crockery for simple meals.

On the first floor is a double bedroom with 1.6m-wide bed, cupboards, a table and a radio-cd. Alongside is a small ensuite shower / toilet. On the second floor is a second bedroom, with the same equipment and layout. If you prefer twin beds, the mattresses on the bed-platform can be slightly separated, or there is a sofa which can be used as an additional bed.

The rooms are sparsely but tastefully furnished, with typically Greek décor: white-washed walls, wooden floors and furniture, blue shutters, canvas chairs and simple storage niches. There is air-con throughout (though the thick walls keep the mill cool), hairdryers in the bedrooms and a TV in the ground floor room. There is a daily cleaner who can also arrange laundry.

The 2 outhouses, one of which is white-washed and the other natural-stone, are about 50 yards from the mill. Each has 1 double bedroom and a shower room, but we have not seen inside them. They have their own terraces.

Save to favouritesPrintMailMilos windmillThe island of Milos is famous for a perfectly-chiselled, 6-foot tall goddess. Before you get the wrong idea, we’re talking about a statue, sculpted 2000 years ago and found 20 years ago near Tripiti. Though she may have moved to Paris, there are still plenty of reasons to visit the island where Venus de Milo was found. Gnarled sea-cliffs, turquoise waters, smugglers’ coves, hot springs, picturesque villages and old churches all vie for your attention on an island which is bizarrely indifferent towards foreign tourism. On the rocky ridge above Venus’ resting place stands a string of windmills, one of which has been converted into a 2-bedroom ‘villa’. It is a narrow, three-storey building with round rooms and a shaded terrace outside, offering views over the sheltered inlet of Adamas. Next to it are two small 1-bedroom outhouses, which can also be rented if you have a larger group. It’s owned and run by a reliable, English-speaking man named Gerasimos Marketos, and not sold outside Greece through any other channels. All in all, it’s a very special place, and ideal for [kids:GR035:families] or groups of friends who are keen to explore a little-known but still very beautiful Greek island.
