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

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.
