Ever since I watched Jonathan Creek as a teenager (and bought myself the dvd box set in last year's January sales) I have always wanted to live in a windmill….

Whilst I know that's probably never going to happen, I have now set my sights on saving up for this whole year and treating myself to a windmill holiday in 2012.… so over the next week or two, I'm going to share with you my favourite windmills on the web.

Private windmills with pool in Santorini
2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 5. From £1,620 per week

On one of the most beautiful coastlines of the world, nestled amongst vineyards and the endless blue skies of Santorini, you can find two private Windmill Villas.

A perfect co-existence of minimal design without compromising luxury and modern comforts, charming simplicity and a picturesque setting. Space and light sparkle through the rooms, and if you open the windows, on a clear day you can see right across the Aegean Sea to the islands of Ios, Naxos, Amorgos & Anafi.

The kidney-shaped swimming pool with Jacuzzi jet streams, the pergola with an amply shaded breakfast and meal area, and the home grown kitchen garden promises Mediterranean life style at its best.
