This romantic spot, set in the tiny hamlet of Arvanitakeika and built in the style of an old windmill, offers beautiful far-reaching views across the island's olive trees to the south of Corfu and the mainland.

Small and intimate, The Windmill is perfect for couples who want nothing more than to indulge their senses and relax, whilst the cleverly designed pool makes the most of the house's wonderful position.

The Windmill, along with Joanna’s House and Thodoris House, is one of three Simpson properties nestled on a hillside in the tiny hamlet.

Once again a wonderful holiday - from the booking through to landing back in the UK, Simpson delivered excellence. Much appreciated by two very busy people with high expectations!

Ms S, August 2023

Had a lovely relaxing holiday lazing by the pool and enjoying the views. Did some exploring across the island – Tripitos Arch is worth the drive and walk. Enjoyed the trip to Anti Paxos and lunch at the first taverna at Vrika. Thank you to Simpson again, another fabulous villa.

Sheila & Vicky, August 2023

We came back again, exactly a year on! The view is still glorious.

Nigel, August 2023

If you enjoy holidaying in a peaceful, secluded and beautiful location, then the Windmill in Paxos is hard to beat. A stunning view and walks through the surrounding olive groves make this our favourite destination.

John Hare, May 2023

Simpson Travel were excellent throughout the process with Covid and accommodating the changes with airports/flights. The reps were really great and the whole process was excellent. The Windmill and Paxos were perfect for what we wanted, the guestbook really helped and I'm gutted we forgot to write in it. The island and amenities are excellent and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Nicholas Goodwin, September 2022

Two weeks of pure relaxation. Thank you Simpsons for your faultless service. We will be back next year to try another of your amazing villas.

Nick and Amanda, July 2022

A lovely relaxing holiday. The views from The Windmill looking out towards Lakka and Corfu beyond are breathtaking. As ever the reps were fantastic and a big thank you to Lili on Paxos and Lynn on Corfu.

Nicholas Parkinson, June 2022

We had a fabulous time at the Windmill Paxos. Having never visited Paxos previously, the villa was outstanding and exactly what we needed. The views are without doubt spectacular. We had everything we needed to make the week one of the best we’ve had in a very long time. We travel extensively and will definitely be back again!

Lisa Sanders, May 2022

This was our second visit to The Windmill and Paxos and it was every bit as good as the first time. Our thanks to Frances, Steph and the team for being so helpful and making our holiday even more special. We are already booked in again for next June!

Karen & Dave, September 2020

We had a fantastic week at The Windmill in beautiful Paxos. A spacious and well-appointed villa with a beautiful view. Special thanks to our rep, Julie, for being so friendly and helpful during our stay. We enjoyed it all so much we are going to rebook for June 2020!

Karen Rowland & Dave Pearce, September 2019

We’ve had a wonderful week at The Windmill lazing by the pool and enjoying the views but also exploring the island. Many thanks to Julie and everyone at Simpson for all their help and advice. We’re in love with beautiful Paxos and plan to return in June 2020.

Karen & Dave, September 2019

The Windmill has been a lovely place to stay on this beautiful island. This is our first visit to Paxos and we hope to return. The Simpson team has been outstanding and all the people of Paxos we have met have been delightful.

Russell & Florence, September 2019

Our first experience with Simpson but it definitely won’t be the last. We usually do all the arrangements ourselves so this was a first for us. Well it was everything and more that we wanted. Full marks to all your staff who delivered a super performance. We thought the holiday was over but then you surprised us when you gave us a fabulous lunch whilst we were waiting for our departure. Wow that’s how to guarantee we will come back to Simpson.

Richard & Janice, September 2019

Simpson are the best! Super. Impressive. Magical. Perfect. Spectacular. Outstanding. Number. SIMPSON. Wonderful two weeks of doing nothing! Finding places to eat – there are lots.

Richard & Janice, September 2019

Our second visit to The Windmill – we thought last year was great but even better this year, if that’s possible. The upgrades are excellent, pool lovely – views to die for – you could go on and on! Thanks to Simpson and their reps – the best travel company we have used in our many travels.

Andrew & Di, July 2019

The Windmill is a perfect venue for any couple wanting peace and privacy. Glorious views and very comfortable. Would recommend it highly.

Diane Jones, June 2019

This was our first experience using Simpson Travel and we were not disappointed. They were efficient, reliable and the taxi service from the airport, to the boat transfers etc., ran like clockwork. Thank you for a fantastic holiday.

Mr Moloney, June 2019

We enjoyed our visit to Paxos and The Windmill very much. It was our first time with Simpson Travel and we have already booked again for next year. We normally like to travel independently, but having the Simpson Travel team to assist if we needed anything was very helpful. Well done!

Mrs D Jones, July 2018

We found the rep (Steph) to be excellent and she gave us all the help we needed. She was great at helping my wife get on the boat on the journey. There was a great chain of care all the way to check-in when it was realised that my wife had hurt her knee.

Mr Beveridge, July 2017

The Windmill on Paxos was a wonderful base for our holiday. Superb accommodation with fantastic views to the west, north and east including the southern coast of Corfu and the Greek mainland.

Mr Harry, July 2017

Fantastic holiday...great stay at The Windmill, Paxos.

Mr Pristo, June 2017

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.


Property Grading Key:

  • 5/5


  • 4/5

    Very good

  • 3/5


  • Location


    Position, view, serenity, privacy

  • Comfort


    Space, style, overall furnishings

* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.

There are few better ways of relaxing than on a luxury holiday in Paxos, where days fill up beautifully with sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling and dining in style, the sea just metres from your table. Amble through ancient olive groves and you’ll catch glimpses of startlingly turquoise bays, the dramatic west-coast cliffs or the Epiros Mountains. In spring, there’s also a haze of purple honesty, wild irises and lilies and a sky that’s alive with birdlife, from hawks to skylarks.

Complete the picture with a stay in one of our handpicked luxury villas, apartments or our unique Adult Only Simpson Hotels and make the most of this peaceful island.
