Our third stay here.
The hotel has a terrific location a a magnificent view over Kastro, the old capital of the island.
The owners do all their best to fulfill your requests. they provide usefull information on sifnos as well. They have started to renovate the appartments and redecorate them which makes it even more attractive !
We feel at home here and would definetly go back again

This sums up everything: We arrived at Windmill Bella Vista and was not to happy with the room as it appeared to be on the side of the hotel. Even though they were fully booked Margarita managed to change rooms for us.

The hotel in itself is very nice - and small which is very good. The view is breathtaking and the pool great. But be aware that if the Meltemi blows heavily it gets very windy. It is after all an old windmill.

If you are looking for the cheapest, all-inclusive, lukewarm-international-mega-buffet "large concrete hotel" don´t go there and STOP READING!
If you are looking for "Greece" - you will find it there! Small island, small beaches, not crowded, lovely people - not corrupted by mass tourism - they love children, small structures - no big hotels, no shopping malls, no highway, no fast-food-chains, small bars and small restaurants with good food (and cheap). Houses made of Stone and in white with blue accessoires and handcrafted chimneys made of clay. And still you can see people sitting on a donkey! So far to the island.
The hotel is located a little bit outside of the village of Artemonas (7 min. walking) with a view over the village of Kastro out to the Aegean Sea and the next islands. A view you can´t get enough of! And all while you have breakfast or stay at the pool - incredible! The rooms are furnished in classic greec style - nice and authentical. In the restaurant they prepare such tasty food - you will like it - the island of Sifnos offers so many different dishes, not only "greec salad" - give it a try (pepper filled with Regato-Cheese and cheeseballs [best ever!]). Have some wine and Manura-cheese (as you can see i fell also in love with the cheese).
I loved it, my wife loved it, my children loved it.
When we left the harbour by ferry i was thinking "Damn, when can i get there again" and i´m still thinking like that!
It was exactly what we were looking for!
You just can´t do wrong!

Room Tip: Try to get the windmill!

The most amazing thing except the breathtaking view , is the minimal beauty of all the rooms. Quiet with a nice swimming pool & the magic vie all over, perfect service, lovely people, the owners are working hard, Maria is super & smiley all the time, so friendly atmosphere , feeling like a guest in your relatives in the island in Greece!!!

Room Tip: The wind mill is nice experience but not so roomy as the other rooms . For sure unique experience .

I ve been stating at Bella Vista last May, just after Orthodox Easter, actually our house was really a mess and we decide to stay at the hotel. We were the only guests but yet service was perfect, breakfast buffet really great an rich, my son loved it.
Rooms are really good for a family having 2 separated rooms . the view from the pool is amazing i would say unique.
As a complex is really friendly and well organised. I like the place and I will certainly stay there again for week ends when opening our house is worthless

Windmill Bella Vista was the best place for us to stay - it is beautifully setted on a hill, calm and you have a great view from each apartment. The rooms are clean, comfortable and very nicely decorated. As we stayed there in August and it was very hot in Sifnos, the breeze you have here all over the day makes it very comfortable. The pool is clean and refreshing, best in the morning :-) Breakfast is very rich with fresh orange juice and fresh bread. We didn't really leave the hotel often because we felt ourselves so relaxed there. It is a ten minutes walk to Artemonas, an old small village where you can eat in tavernas or catch the bus to Appolonia and other places.
Georgios and Margarita, the owners, as well as the staff are very friendly and always try to help you out with anything.
We had a very good time there and hope to come again soon! :-)
Lots of Greetings to Bella Vista...Manuela

We stayed at Windmill Bella Vista 10 days in july 2012 - 2 adults and 2 teenagers.

The beautifull Sifnos island gave us all the good things we have heard of from others + 10%!

The Bella Vista in particular was a very pleasant experience, with the very helpful and friendly hosts Georgios and Margarita and their staff taking good care of us in a relaxed and family-style manner. We like!

The apartment complex and the pool area had an almost majestic view overlooking the coastline and the scenic city Kastro. The pool area invites you to sit and dream about ancient greeks fighting on the hillside, pirates roaming the seas and totally forget your daily life. We like!

If you expect to arrive at hotel, with a marble lobby and staff in white uniform, you will get gravely disappointed. If you come with an open mind and would like to discover Greece at its best, then you will fall in love with this place. We did!

Thank you Margarita and Georgios with the tasteful samples of octopus, raki and olives and for your help in any situation. See you again!
