Beautiful! Very atmospheric and unique. Lots of charm and character but good modern facilities.

  • 5 of 5

Windmill Hill is just as it sounds ! A windmill on a hill overlooking beautiful countryside and when the weather is fair, a sunny spot to relax and unwind.

The Mill, Annexe, garden, courtyard and pool were well maintained and would comfortably sustain a family holiday for 6 particularly in the summer months.

Our visit wasn't blessed with best weather sadly but this did not detract from the beauty of the setting or the hospitality that the Mill afforded us. It was pretty chilly in the evening tho' and blankets and hot water bottles ( provided at the property) were put to good use as were the heaters. Cosy inside once the heaters kicked in, the kitchen was simply but well equipped and family suppers were enjoyed around the beautiful large dining table.

Fred, the manager, was welcoming and helpful and showed us around on our arrival.

The owners were also very helpful and responded to queries efficiently and courteously.

We would definitely recommend Windmill Hill to anyone wanting to enjoy peace and tranquility and beautiful countryside. Being almost a two hour drive from Faro it had the additional benefit for us of being removed from the tourist areas. Few people spoke English so it felt that we were experiencing a true taste of Portugal . It is a beautiful place to stay and we highly recommend it.

Wunderschön und außergewöhnlich

  • 5 of 5

Vom ersten Kontakt mit dem Vermieter bis zur Abreise verlief alles absolut super!

Die Windmühle ist ein wirklich cooler Ort!!

Das ganze Anwesen sieht wirklich so aus wie auf den Fotos. Man sieht die Mühle, die auf einem Hügel über dem Ort throhnt schon von weitem. Dort oben wehte immer ein erfrischender Wind, dadurch hatten wir fast gar keine Insekten, außer einigen schönen großen Schmetterlingen.

Die Mühle selbst bietet einen großen Schlafraum mit kingsize Bett ganz oben unter dem Dach.

Von dort hat man einen tollen Blick weit über das Land 360 Grad.

In dem Nebengebäude befindet sich noch ein Schlafzimmer mit Doppelbett, ein weiteres Bad und eine große Wohnküche mit langem Esstisch. Wir haben allerdings meistens draußen gegessen, wo zwischen Mühle und Nebengebäude ein Tisch aus einem alten Mühlstein steht mit einem Strohdach, das von einem alten Wagenrad gehalten wird. Das ganze Anwesen ist so individuell und mit Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet, dass wir es jederzeit einem "normalen" Haus vorziehen würden.

Der Pool ist übrigens nicht beheizt und daher eine echte Erfrischung!

Ringsum die Mühle liegen einige Bauernhöfe mit Gänsen, Hühnern und Rindern.

Belle propriete

  • 3 of 5

Superbe propriété , mais manque de vaisselle et chemin d'accès pas du tout pratique surtout en moto . Prévoir de mettre la filtration de la piscine 1 ou 2 jours avant car à notre arrivée l'eau était trouble et commençait à verdir et beaucoup d'insectes flottaient en surface .La communication avec le responsable un peu compliqué car il ne parle que l'Anglais et le Portuguais vraiment dommage !

Owner's Response: Il est très agréable que vous décrivez le moulin comme superbe, mais certains de vos autres commentaires sont décevants. Habituellement, notre gestionnaire reçoit des compléments lumineux de nos invités. Il fait un excellent travail en maintenant la piscine et est toujours disponible pour aider et donner des conseils. En parlant anglais et portugais, il parle aussi néerlandais (sa langue maternelle). Nous avons essayé de communiquer avec vous en français au téléphone et lorsque cela s'est révélé difficile, nous vous avons invité à nous envoyer un courriel en français sur les préoccupations que vous aviez, mais vous avez choisi de ne pas le faire. Nous ne savons pas ce que la vaisselle que vous ressentez est manquante. Il y a 10 pièces de la plupart des vaisselles qui semblent plus que suffisantes pour les quatre personnes de votre groupe. Nous sommes également perplexes par votre description de la route d'accès. Il n'y a qu'un très court tronçon de route qui n'est pas revêtu (environ 500 mètres), mais il est parfaitement adapté à tous les types de véhicules, y compris les motos. Pour conclure, je suis désolé de ne pas répondre à vos attentes.
