“Hilltop hideaway”

Each stone has been lovingly rebuilt by the owner himself to create this authentic Milos “windmill” holiday home. Everything about its construction has been done with minute attention to detail and taste. Location is perfect and views stunning. Just to have the chance to stay in Drougas Windmill was such a privilege.

The main mill building consists of a living area, small but beautifully formed, and 2 bedrooms one on each floor above. Also a small bathroom with toilet and basin.

In the annexe, just across the patio area, is a well equipped kitchen with small dining area as well as a good size bathroom with shower. The garden is a joy and I should imagine in the very hot days of summer would be comfortable as the inevitable wind (clue in the name!) would cool all occupants.

We were welcomed by the charming owners themselves who live locally. In the kitchen was all manner of supplies in a well presented “welcome pack” to get us started including some lovely local sweet delicacies.

I can very strongly recommend this property. I cannot imagine how it could ever score less than a full 5 stars!

Milos Drouga, a beautiful family run Windmill was just ideal for a much needed relaxing holiday. From the breathtaking views, to the superb decor - I would gladly recommend this place to anyone looking for a lovely and calm island summer break. Furthermore the owners Mr & Mrs Drouga were lovely and very helpful. Both my partner and I, and our friends will definitely be returning next summer.

The Drouga Windmill is nothing short of spectacular. My wife and I stayed in the windmill during our honeymoon and couldn't have been more blown away by the windmill and it's views. The beautifully restored windmill is literally atop the island of Milos and has absolutely gorgeous 360 views of the island and surrounding seascape.

The 2 bedrooms in the windmill + full bathroom and kitchen in the neighboring annex are meticulously maintained by the Drouga family. It has several patio areas with some of the most spectacular views I've ever seen that make for an epic place to have a drink, a meal, or just to relax and take in the scenery.

Anna manages the property and is extremely friendly and was quick to respond to every email. Her mother stopped by to hand off and pickup the keys and was also extremely warm and hospitable.

Downtown Tripiti is just a 10-15 minute walk away and has half a dozen or so restaurants and bars. It can get a little bit windy in the summer, but it didn't take away from our love of staying at the windmill a bit.

If you're visiting Milos, I couldn't imagine a more amazing place to stay than the Drouga Windmill.
