History of the Kimolos Windmill Hotel



The Kimolos Windmill, erected in 1852, served as a steadfast landmark for many years. Originally designed for optimal functionality, it underwent significant changes two years after its inception, with the addition of two flats that housed farm animals. In response to the robust winds characteristic of Kimolos, the walls were fortified with a thickness of at least 1.40 meters.


Operating seamlessly until 1930, the windmill became locally renowned as “O Mylos tou Giatrou” or “The Doctors’ Windmill,” owing to its occupancy by a family of doctors spanning two generations. The unique association with the medical profession added an intriguing layer to the windmill’s history.


In a subsequent chapter of its narrative, the windmill underwent a thoughtful renovation to preserve its authentic architectural style. Today, its enduring charm stands as a testament to its rich past, seamlessly blending history with the present on the picturesque island of Kimolos. Explore the captivating legacy of the Kimolos Windmill, where time-honored tradition meets timeless elegance.
