Blessed with scenic sunsets and Aegean views, this luxury three-villa complex provides an idyllic getaway on the peaceful northeast coast of Santorini.
Unlike the island’s other high-end accommodations, most of them whitewashed cubiform resorts carved out of the volcanic cliffside, the Windmill Villas are modeled after traditional windmills and have a rare local, authentic atmosphere.
Each three-story unit is a charming private sanctuary, complete with all the trimmings of an upscale hotel, from fully-equipped kitchens to personal pools and Jacuzzis. Their architecture is characteristic to the Cycladic islands, with smooth curved walls, minimalist built-in furnishings, and wooden window shutters painted in bright colors.
Meanwhile, the rustic chic decor gives off a genuine Greek look and feel, wrapping guests in gracious warmth and comfort. Though individually styled, villas are similar in layout, if not identical, and share the same amenities. All three are laid on three floors and are surrounded by private terraces and flower gardens.
Consisting of living/dining room and a beautifully appointed kitchen, the ground floor overlooks the surrounding vineyards and the blue sea beyond through pretty little windows. Each upper floor houses a wonderful ensuite bedroom painted in pastel island colors and appointed with luxury bedding and premium Apivita toiletries.
The Santorini Windmill Villas retreat occupies a tranquil, serene setting away from the crowds, yet conveniently close to both Fira and Oia, making it perfect for those who seek some peace and quiet. Relaxing spa treatments and private tours of the island can be arranged on request, and the resort also offers a series of wedding and honeymoon services.
