Unique Living Experience
Inside the energy charged spaces of Castle Panigirakis, with the most spectacular view of Mykonos, two luxurious residences of unique beauty are built, that are there to offer you a special life experience, you will never forget.
The tradition of the Cycladic architecture combined with its chaste lavishness in front of the infinite view of the Aegean Sea, are going to give your vacations the quality you’ve always dreamt of.
A traditional Windmill and the Windmill’s Guest House, two independent residences of extraordinary beauty, invisible from the prying eyes but also there, between them.
The strategic location of Castle Panigirakis allows you to be so close to the “heart” of the town, enjoying its intense tempo, while at the same time you enjoy your cocktail at the comfortable outdoor areas, gazing the Aegean Sea and the immersive sun dawn that takes place just before your eyes.
It is not by coincidence that Castle Panigirakis is considered to be one of the top worldwide sunset locations!
A property of unique beauty and aesthetics. The most comfortable and luxurious Windmill in Mykonos, among the 11 Windmills of the island. Simply a splendid piece of art!
Live the experience of accommodation in a live historical monument. Who wouldn’t like to live this experience of staying in this Traditional Mykonian Windmill with the most wonderful view you have ever seen, just once?
The traditional and luxurious Windmill is built in three levels. Wood and marble are found in abundance, everywhere in the building.
On the ground floor one can find a fully equipped kitchen, whereas in the middle of the room a marble table dominates the space. On the side of the room, curved into the walls is a fireplace and next to it lays a stone built sofa with harmonic curves. On the same floor, one can also discover a bathroom with a shower built inside the stone, a real architectural “gem”.
The wooden steps are wonderfully planted in the wall and lead on the first floor where we encounter the sitting room that is also utilized as a dressing room, with is spacious wardrobe. The presence of wood and the fine decoration are there to simply calm down your senses. Small in size but plentiful in number windows offer this space special lighting effects and natural aeration to the rounded silhouette of the Windmill, whereas a comfortable round sofa nests perfectly with its mattress into the wall, offering a sleeping place for an another person to spend his or her night.
Following the steps upwards, we are led to the 2nd floor, on the top of the Windmill, where the main bedroom is situated. A large double bed made of wood is covered in pillows over the most comfortable mattress you have ever laid on. Wooden floors and wood carvings found around the room make it look more glamorous, while the eyes are directed towards the traditional mechanism of the Windmill that rolls quietly when the wind gets stronger.
Just on top of that your eyes capture the conical roof of the Windmill, that is decorated with an old chandelier that gives the impression that you are about to communicate with heaven.
The main window besides the bed offers an eye catching view of the old harbor and the Aegean Sea, offering moments of relaxation and great enthusiasm.
The bathroom is also carved into the wall and is put there to complete the whole picture of this superb architectural design which is undoubtedly a splendid piece of art!

BEST AirBnB experience to date! The Windmill Honeymoon Suite is BY FAR the best place to stay in all of Mykonos! Everything was perfection from the moment we contacted Anastasis. We are so grateful to have had a once in a lifetime experience by staying in a Windmill. What an amazing place! Anastasis was warm, friendly, and the perfect host going above and beyond to make us feel welcomed. Our arrival / departure were seamless. We were without words when we arrived at the property – it is absolutely GORGEOUS and well cared for! We were enchanted by the views from the spacious and private patio. You cannot describe how beautiful the sunsets are until you witness them for yourself from this beautiful property. We enjoyed it so much that we stayed in a few of the nights we spent there just enjoying a home cooked meal outdoors taking it all in. The location is fabulous as you are perched above the town but still in walking distance making you close to it all. The Windmill itself is even more beautiful in person as it is in the photos. It was meticulously clean and cared for, every detail perfect. The WiFi was fast, bed extremely comfortable and the air conditioning cooled the place in mere moments. It had everything you could possible need for your stay and Anastasis was readily available if we needed anything at all – which we didn’t because it was absolutely PERFECT. We could not be happier with our selection and HIGHLY recommend to anyone traveling to Mykonos – you will not regret it. We feel so lucky to have stayed here and you will too! Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy such a unique experience!
All of the reviews are accurate -- what a fantastic experience! The windmill is very spacious and the grounds are absolutely beautiful. We loved hanging out on the private terrace which also had the best view on the island. Full kitchen too which is great for making breakfast in the AM. The property is a short (10-15 minute) walk to the center of town. We thought it was much better to be right outside of the center rather than in the middle which is flooded with tourists / overly crowded. Yes, it is an uphill walk which is a challenge, but really not a big deal at all..most places in Mykonos require some type of up hill walk. Best of all is the host, Anastasis. He takes care of your airport / ferry transfers (usually you would pay your hotel 25 euros each way) and is totally connected on the island. He can help you get beach chairs, reservations, and really make the most out of your trip. We were three friends traveling and one of our friends got lost twice on the way home from a night out (mainly because she has no sense of direction), and each time Anastasis magically showed up and saved the day! Thank you Anastasis for a great trip -- we hope to see you again soon.
Absolutely stunning: overlooking the town with a beautiful view of the marina. Hard not to spend the entire time at the windmill with it's sunbed, comfy 'boat' and within the accommodation itself; but the town beckoned.
Anastasiou was the perfect host.
I would recommend this hotel to any and everybody! My husband and I stayed 2 nights in May 2014 (wish it was more!) on our honeymoon and were thrilled. Anastasis was always friendly, responsive and the most professional host. The property is expansive, quiet and secluded, with great views of Mykonos town and the water. It is a 10minute walk down (down, down!) some stairs to town, and there are some less-touristy restaurants/shops just up the road (5minutes), so a great location - a respite in the middle of it all. We will remember and talk about the windmill itself the rest of our lives! What a unique place to stay. It was comfortable, all the amenities and nice touches we would've needed. Incredibly comfortable master bedroom, fun "cave-style" showers (or an outdoor shower if you prefer). LOVED IT ALL! Thank you, Anastasis.
My fiancee and I stayed at the Windmill and it blew away all expectations. Anastasis could not have been a better host. He picked us up from the airport (@6:30am!) and handled all arrangements such as quad rental, couples massage and sunset yoga. The Windmill is truly a magical place located above the town. With complete privacy and charm, it was the absolutely best part of our vacation to Greece. The views are amazing and the Windmill is very comfortable and well kept. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Mykonos. We loved his 4 dogs that roam the grounds as well and were always there to welcome us home when we returned to the Windmill. If you are looking for a special place to stay with the best view in Mykonos, then the Windmill is a MUST. Anastasis was also very helpful in navigating the island and recommending great restaurants/beaches/things to do. It was such an incredible island and setting, that we have already decided to come back and stay at the Windmill for our honeymoon!! You couldn't ask for a better place to stay or a better host. Thanks again, Anastasis!!

The windmill is absolutely fantastic! My boyfriend and I stayed for three nights in mid-September and it was truly magical. Not only were the views breath-taking but we felt like we had our own private piece of paradise. For people that have never been to Mykonos, the windmill is perched on the hill overlooking the town. The outdoor patio is great for lounging and its nice to be out of the bustle of Mykonos - while still being walking distance away. More than anything, sleeping three floors up, under a thatched roof, watching the the sea and town - can't be beat.
I would highly recommend the Windmill to anyone looking to stay someplace special! Anastasis is a great host. He arranged for pick up/drop off and was very gracious.
The Windmill estate is the perfect place to stay in Mykonos! The renovated windmill is beautifully decorated inside and out, offering splendid views of Mykonos town below. You'll want to rent an ATV or car, however, as the location is high on hill up from the main town. Plus, Mykonos' beaches are best explored with the help of your own personal transportation!
The host, Anastasis, was wonderful. For example, when we locked ourselves out during a dinner party, he was there with a new key in less then five minutes! (Be careful, the door locks automatically when you close it!). Overall, it was a magnificent experience. Some technical notes: the estate was wonderfully fast WiFi that even works out on the patio, if you need it. And, they offer both port and airport transfers, as well as beach towels for your long days on the Mykonos beaches.
No matter if this is your first stay or your twentieth on Mykonos, you should absolutely try the windmill!

My name is Anastasis; I’m originally from Athens, but for the past few years, have divided my time between the mainland and the island of Mykonos.
I consider myself lucky to call such a beautiful place with countless destinations ‘home’.
Hopefully like yourself, I love to travel and explore as much of the world as I can- as Socrates said: “I am not an Athenian, nor a Greek, but a citizen of the world.”
Thanks for taking time to check out my site- I wish you safe and happy travels.
