Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.
Indoor fireplaceThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

This windmill is located at the edge of the small agricultural town Neapolis. It has been sensitively converted into a home. The mechanisms are all intact in the space which is compact and cosy. There are two balconies and a stone staircase to a large garden. There are many popular and also wild beaches within 20 minutes’ drive through beautiful countryside. Crete forms a significant part of the cultural heritage of Greece and so there are many places of interest in the Neapolis Lasithi area.

I couldn't agree more, gorgeous and quirky indeed! I am glad you appreciated Neapolis, it is an authentic working town that does not have (very welcome) tourists needs at its centre. The windmill is a famous landmark now that we have restored it.

The windmill is like a fairy castle! It was very interesting experiencing a windmill as a home. The conversion is skilfully done and so all home comforts function beautifully. The garden is also lovely. Having Neapolis on the doorstep as it were is very convenient as you don't ha…
