The Old Mill

Spetses

A windmill! recently renovated with 3 bedrooms all with en-suite bathroom with direct access via a pathway to a beautiful cove with crystal clear water, and easy walking distance to the Old Harbour of Spetses.

Characterful windmill which has been recently renovated with 3 bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms and the possibility of extra accommodation in the guest house

The Old Mill is a unique property set in a stunning location close to the Old Harbour with magnificent views looking out towards the Saronic Gulf islands of Dokos, Trikeri and Hydra. From the garden gate, a short pathway leads directly down to the sea-shore where guests can swim in crystal clear water from rocks or a tiny creek.

Part of the uniqueness of the property is the three round rooms of the tower which have been recently restored. The round room on the ground floor forms the kitchen renovated to a high standard giving modern cooking facilities in a traditional setting.

A very pretty external staircase connects the middle and upper round rooms where there are two bedrooms. The middle round room has a double bed recessed into the wall to maximise space with a small but beautifully renovated new bathroom built into the thickness of the wall. This room has a generous terrace leading off it with wonderful sea views and is a perfect spot to sunbathe or enjoy an evening drink.

The round room at the top of the Mill has a double bedroom with newly updated en-suite bathroom and magnificent views in all directions particularly at night when guests can enjoy the shimmering reflection of the moonlight on the sea.

Going back down to the ground floor level, next to the kitchen is a lovely living room with comfortable furnishings and beautifully chosen antique objets d’art. The living room has French windows leading out to the garden. At the far end of the living room are a few steps which lead down to the third bedroom which has twin beds and direct access to the garden. This bedroom has a bathroom of antique marble chosen for its looks and its non-slip surface.

There is also a guest house with bathroom that is simply designed and furnished and can be used if guests need some extra space for perhaps a maid, nanny, or two older children.

The property has WIFI throughout the house and garden, TV, telephone for local calls and air-conditioning in some rooms. The Mill was originally designed to make the most of the cooling sea breezes and its position on the peninsula means that it never gets too hot.

There is a delightful garden surrounding the Mill which has been planted over many years with mature trees, shrubs and plants. Under the leafy coolness of a mature Carob tree is a lovely outdoor seating area with beautiful sea views. A pergola gives shade to the outdoor dining area which is perfect for enjoying an evening meal.

From the garden gate, a pathway of approx. 50 metres gives direct access to the sea where guests can swim in crystal clear water from rocks or a tiny creek. This is a perfect spot to enjoy a quiet and lazy swim whilst looking out over the violet-hued islands of Hydra, Dokos and Trikeri in the distance.

Just a 10 min walk away is the Old Harbour which is the centre of the summer social scene with its array of excellent restaurants, cafes and bars. Garyfallo beach is also about a 10 min walk away. For those who enjoy a more lively scene, the beach at Aghia Marina with its beach bar, umbrellas, loungers and watersports facilities is also only a short walk away. For shops, there is a supermarket within about a 10 min walk and the supermarket will deliver.

The main town of Dappia is about 30 mins walk or a few mins by moped or quad bike. Dappia has two summer cinemas (which change their programme every night), a July music festival, two museums, and plenty of cafes, bars, restaurants, tavernas and shops including a fish market where guests can buy the latest catch each morning.

With the Peloponnese coast lying just off Spetses, it is also easy to combine a day trip to one of the major archaeological sites of Greece such as Mycenae or Epidavros and to visit the Venetian town of Nafplion.

The Old Mill is perfect for guests who want to experience simple, Greek island life at its best with crystal clear sea just steps away from the property!
