This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Santorini, with its staggering and immense breadth of cliffs and its panoramic views of the wine dark Aegean, has been rumored throughout the ages to have been the legendary Atlantis. It is here, perched upon the lip of this slumbering volcano, that the idyllic town of Firostefani offers a wondrous respite to travelers.

Inspired by my stay at this hotel, I had decided to replicate it for the Sims as a vacation getaway. However, for this upload I have converted it into a residential lot that contains two separate apartments: a studio suite and the Milos Honeymoon Suite, which is built into the windmill. Realistically, the cava, or wine caverns, were carved into the cliff beneath the hotel, but I opted to omit these.

-Lot size is 3x3
-Hack-free (checked via Clean Installer)
-Created with Family Fun Stuff installed. However, this pack is NOT required to install this lot. For best results, install with the Sims2Pack Clean Installer, found here:

Custom Content NOT included:
-Canopy for king size beds and the wine bottle with two glasses by Phelana, found here at

Custom Content included:
-Numenor’s Maxis Lost Scotch Pine, Magnolia, Flowering Thorn, and Dogwood trees, found here at:
-Numenor’s Maxis Lost “Monolith” decorative topiary, found here at:
-Custom wallpaper and tiles by V1ND1CARE

*EDIT -- Please DO NOT upload this lot, or any of my other works, to the Exchange and/or any paysites without my consent.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

On mules we find two legs behind
and two we find before.
We stand behind before we find
what those behind be for.

Where do the pics of the "real" one and the "fake" one leave off? It's impossible to tell ... which is true proof of your incredible talent! Thank you SO much for sharing this!

Wow.. so many wonderful lots available these days.. Beautiful work.. I can almost feel the sea breeze blowing against my skin. Thank you for sharing this gorgeous lot with all of us. :D

Does it mean that the Mill Wheel placed on the Mill roof is fake?
I would appreciate those kind of info, cause I found first time today a lot of pics that could not be true with the means available.
I remember that we first claimed about Maxis publishing fake pics for TS2 propaganda. If we start to do the same self, we are giving written allowance to be tricked.
Don't take me the hard way, I'm just forecasting troubles.

I haven't downloaded the Mill into my neighborhood yet, I just have one comment. When you give a link to the items that aren't included in the download could you please link directly to the item, because I had a hard time finding the canopy and the wine glasses, especially because the website is in a different language. I'm not sure if I even downloaded the correct canopy or not. Anyway I can't wait to see the Mill in my neighborhood, and I will comment back on what I think when I see it!!!

No, no, no. Nothing is added, or Photoshopped, into my pictures. The pictures come straight out of the game as one sees them, and the windmill is just another example of what one can do with the constrainfloorelevation cheat. All are very real.

Impressive! It's so realistic! Your artistic touch is in all the details you put in any corner of the lot, but it's really impressive how you can manage the software to build something that nobody else can believe possible.
Thank you, you're one of those talented guys here that probably don't eat at the table but in front of PC, don't sleep in bed but take a little rest in fornt of PC ....
