Guests often search for this popular amenity
The mill is a magical hilltop haven, beautiful and unique, private, secluded and special. Situated in an ecological reserve, the mill is an eco home and perfect for couples escaping for a romantic break and for families alike.

The space
The grounds of the mill are divided into different garden areas with 3 different dining areas where you can enjoy or avoid the sun at your leisure or swim in a wonderful bio-pool.

A sand terrace surrounds half the mill, perfect for relaxing, doing a spot of Yoga, (mat supplied) or letting children run free, or for a good game of Petanque. There's a tree swing, and a tree chair and a hammock slung between an almond and an olive tree.

The swimming pond (8m x 3m) is 2m deep and perfect for a cooling swim. It is chemical free and filtered by a water garden of aquatic plants and solar filtration system. It was designed in partnership with the designer behind the award winning pool at Hampton Court.

There is free wifi, books, a well stocked DVD library, a PS3, cards and boardgames, binoculars, body boards, balls and lots more for guests to enjoy. A welcome pack of local wine and food greets every guest so you can arrive unprepared and not worry. Also there's a detailed information pack full of useful information.

Situated in an ecological reserve the mill stands on a hill overlooking the plains that roll their way from the Atlantic coast to the Spanish border. Tucked away near the delightful village of Santa Luzia, between the historic town of Ourique and the picturesque Odemira the mill may be secluded but it is not isolated.

The mill is a perfect base for birdwatching, cycling, stargazing, walking, horse riding and exploring.

It is just a ten minute walk to the local village shops and restaurant, and a fifteen minute drive to the nearest town, banks and supermarkets etc. Fabulous beaches are 30 minutes away and wonderful lakes are much closer, and great walks straight from the back door. It's also the ultimate retreat for those wanting to get away from it all.

Where you’ll be

Santa Luzia, Beja, Portugal

Immediate neighbours are goats and wildlife. Bee eaters flock and burble in the warm evenings and you may catch the site of a lolloping Egyptian mongoose or find red legged partridge strutting along the track. In the valley lies a quiet village where you can catch the local flavour in little bars and pick up essentials. The local wine is glorious...
