“Stunning view and a perfect privacy close to nature”
Reviewed July 20, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The Mill is really amazing! The place definitely exceeded our expectations. It looks exactly as seen at the pictures and offers a great interior design. Yiannis (an owner) pays attention to every single detail, in order to create the very consistent climate of this unique place. It is far from being a typical vacation villa. Located over 10 km from the nearest beach and touristic seaside resorts offers peaceful holidays, close to nature, without any other villas in a neighborhood. It gives you 100% of privacy in a beautiful environment. The view to the Nidri bay is stunning, especially at night. And the sky full of stars makes this place a great spot for amateur astronomers. The nearest restaurant is in a small village Platistoma (within walking distance). But many other restaurants and small shops with souvenirs as well as food markets are in a Karya village (4 km away), including Eleni tavern, famous from its great cuisine– worth trying! The location of the mill is almost in the middle of Lefkas island, which makes it good start point for sightseeing all over the island and driving in various directions. Having a car seems to be critical, if you would like to feel comfortable and be active. The mill is renovated with all modern facilities but with a respect to its heritage as well. The studio, absolutely modern in fashion, fits surprisingly well to the mill and altogether create and great space for enjoying the holidays. There are 7 spots all over the property where you can sit either for dinning or just to rest, therefore you will always find a shade during a sunny day. The two kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms are fully equipped even with dishwasher, washing machine, fire places, sunbeds, umbrellas and whatever you need. Air-condition in the studio as well as fans in the mill helped us to survive even the hottest nights. The owners are very warm and made us feel more as friends than as guests paying for renting a house. The place is undoubtedly worth coming back.

Reviewed July 14, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We've spent ten wonderful days,me and my friends, in this extraordinary place,sharing each of us the elegant tradition of the mill with the functional modernity of the new builted accommodation.
We had the three of us,such a good social and individual time,so that I feel grateful to you both Thomas V. and Yiannis Z. not only because you share with your guests this powerful place but also because you know to organize a real functional space as well as you direct a fictive one up on stage.
Thank you for the hospitality.You will see us soon.Xr.

“The perfect retreat in Lefkada”
Reviewed July 4, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We stayed at the mill for 4 nights in June, and soon discovered it was the most unique and idyllic place we've ever had the good fortune of staying. Yiannis and Thomas were incredibly welcoming and helpful and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable- including leaving some wonderful little treats for us like local honey, watermelon and wine!

The property itself is utterly charming and beautiful- the old 19th century mill feels like you're in a fairytale and the new studio and infinity pool make the experience so comfortable and relaxing we could barely leave the property during our stay!

It is the perfect retreat in a quiet and secluded area but very easy to access the pretty village of Karya in 10 mins by car with a supermarket, tavernas etc.

We would recommend this stay to anyone and are definitely making plans to return soon!
