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!

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 wife and I recently honeymooned in Greece. We stayed at a number of places that we booked through AirBnB, and they were all very nice. But this place was the best, and Anastasis was definitely our best host! The windmill is gorgeous, and Anastasis is friendly and helpful in all respects. Book here with confidence.
If you really want to do something more for yourself this is a perfect choice!
My wife and I had stayed in the windmills guest house for five days and we decided to go for the last day to the windmill apartment! Such a good decision, it was a cherry on top of our vacation!
The veranda of the windmill is probably the best 25 m2 on the entire Mykonos island, with absolutely the best sunset view ever!
Anastatis is a very friendly host and very professional in his work! He help us with his tips and drove us to the port and back!
Soo coming next year..
My wife and I stayed three nights in the windmill -- our first time in Mykonos. Our stay was absolutely perfect and exceeded our expectations. The host Anastasi was gracious enough to pick us up from the airport and get us settled into our home for the next 3 nights.
Where to start? The grounds of the Castle are beautiful, stone walls, arches, gates, and nicely manicured landscaping give you the feeling of royalty. Two amazing patios with a dining table, chaise, bench, and lounge made of a boat(!), frame the city of Mykonos and what we believe is the best view on the island.
Then comes the windmill! After getting over the fact that we were actually IN a windmill we were blown away but the detail of the marble floors, winding staircases, chandeliers, and the painstaking detail of all of the accompaniments. Each floor is unique, but the best is left for the bedroom with the vaulted ceiling, beautiful bed and the view of downtown. A few pillows are stacked by the window for you to read or just enjoy the port town below.
The location is perfect but not for the faint of heart. Town is a 15 minute walk that we did a few times a day ... Going down is easy ... coming back ... helps you work off the food that you ate in town... Wouldn't recommend for the elderly or kids BUT a rental car, ATV, or scooter is just a short walk away and Anastasi can help arrange. This reduces any inconvenience at all.
We could go on and on about this amazing, wonderful, and magical place but we are already planning our next trip back. We had such a great time!
