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.

Customer feedback

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 – June/July 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

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

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

Everything exceeded our expectations. We had a fabulous holiday which was unavoidably extended due to a threatened air traffic controllers' strike. Kate, Julie and Frances on Paxos could not have been more attentive or helpful. They are all a credit to the company. We will certainly travel with Simpson Travel in the future and will recommend the company to friends and family.
Mr Prenzlau – September 2016

Thank you for a wonderful two weeks in Paxos. The Windmill was beautiful and Simpson Travel made every aspect of our holiday so smooth and easy that all we had to worry about was relaxing and having fun!
Mrs Howard – August 2016

Keep doing what you are doing, it is very good.
Mr Smith – June 2015

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.

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.
