19th century Traditional Windmill renovated as a house with magnificent view to the sea and the village. Quiet place, five minutes walk from the center of Lefkes .

The space

Here we are in the splendidly beautiful island of Paros, in the
picturesque and magnificent village of Lefkes, where our Windmill 7,50 m. high, was founded in the middle of the 19th century. The windmill is built up of huge stones forming its exterior wall of 120 cm thick, which embrace round-around its inner space of two floors and a four meters diameter.
The Windmill has worked for many years, grinding the wheat of the villagers, assuring them the precious good of bread during those difficult years, until the middle of 20th century, when it was mortally wounded by a thunder. After that, the windmill, which was giving life to all the peasants, ceased its work.
Today, 150 years after, we have renovated it in order to pay homage to that stony-ghost of the Aegean Sea, converting it to a monument of historical and cultural significance and retrospection; we try at the same time to pay a tribute as well to all those who worked and lived by its working wombs.
Description of the windmill: At the main floor of the windmill there is a small kitchen with a refrigerator with all the implements that you can make your breakfast. There is no oven but there is a hot plate. There is also a couch which can be turned to a bed.
At the 1st floor there is a double bed with a wc and a wardrobe. You can relax watching television or enjoying the view from the windows. Mind your head as you go up the stairs.
Round-around the windmill there is a veranda six meters wide, where you can sit and have your breakfast, enjoying the unique view of the sea, the Naxos island and the village of Lefkes..
In the lefthand side of the veranda outside the windmill, there is also a proper bathroom with shower, toilet and a washing machine. This used to be the millers warehouse.
We thank you for your interest to rent our windmill.
Your holidays in the windmill is indeed something exceptional that you will never forget.

Guest access

Outside the windmill there is a big veranda with a pergola for sitting and relaxing admiring the view to the sea and the village of Lefkes.
The windmill is so close to the village and so quite. The most of the time there is a breeze at the small hill that makes the hot days of the Summer easy staying in the windmill, with its exterior wall of 120 cms, even if it is a hot weather outside or cold.

The windmill is a wonderful retreat, obviously much loved and beautifully appointed. If you are here out of season, Lefkes is very quiet, but providing you have a car or scooter no part of the island is very far away. This is a very special place and we had a magical stay.

The traditional windmill is a really special place to stay. If you're looking for something unusual with a personal flavor this is where to go. It was impressive to sleep and wake up to on the first floor to the often strong winds of the kyklades. The town of Lefkes is really nice and not too touristic in comparison with the other towns on paros. You can walk to great cafés and restaurants and the town (village) center within five minutes. Close to the windmill you'll find a nice patio-area where you can sit and enjoy a drink. It was especially nice that we found some drinks and basic breakfast in the fridge. However, the windmill is not a new place and has a little vintage feel to it. Especially the bathroom which is outside of the main building. This is a really special place I highly recommend. You shouldn't miss it!

Personal feeling: Excellent BnB experience! Lovely and clean environment! Definitely unforgettable experience which you cannot get from normal BnB. BnB host explained everything we need and take care of us very well ! They loves Paros so much and definitely want to share all the good about Paros to us! No exaggeration, this BnB is definitely one of most important reasons for us to love Paros and revisit again ! We could not have such a enjoyable experience if we did not choose to live in this Windmill. Environment: Excellent! The bed is comfortable. Bathroom has stable hot water supply! Feel comfortable inside the Windmill even in summer due to its thick wall insulation. Location: it is in the centre of the Island therefore all points could be reached by 30 mins at most if you have a car or scooter, which is very convenient! Definitely recommend to rent a car or motorbike if you stay here. Special: I and my wife stay at the garden of Windmill at night and see many stars with only two of us and have a really romantic night !

We've been coming to Paros for ten years now and this year we've chosen this windmill in Lefkes. What a lovely surprise! We found the house absolutely gorgeous, the hosts amazingly nice and the surroundings simply beautiful. We spent lovely mornings and evenings in the pergola. It was like a dream :)
