Anemoscope Villa Santorini
Nestled in the picturesque medieval village of Pyrgos, the three storey imposing Anemoscope Windmill gazes in admiration at the Aegean Sea, the villages and Santorini’s famous Caldera. The Windmill has 120 sq. meters interior areas and is decorated with a composition of traditional and modern vintage style.
Anemoscope has a remarkable story; hence it was one of the five unique windmills of Pyrgos. The official name of the windmill was “Pera Mylos”, it was built early 1700 and operated for more than two centuries, located at an ideal location on the island which helped producing goods under all weather conditions. The windmill stopped operating after the strong earthquake of 1956.
“Karamolegkos” family, who owns and preserves the windmill after the earthquake, took the initiative to fully renovate it and create a unique lodging place, worth of experiencing. Some of the furniture of the villa are either handmade or genuine items found and kept from the past, which now belong to the heritage of the windmill.
