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 .
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.
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.
