A peaceful retreat, only two minutes from the next village. It's a 200 years old mill, with river, waterfalls, terraces, fruit gardens and forest. A wonderful place to relax. Fresh water around and a lot of shadowy spots to cool down in the summer heat. Cozy room with two hand-worked bunk beds , suitable for pilgrims, families, groups and pets. To Porto about 60 km, to Aveiro 30 km, to the coast about 40 minutes driving. Come in and relax.

The space

The mill is a very special place with a stunning surrounding, as the garden, the river and the forest. The mill is rustic, simple and decorated with love. 2 Bathrooms and kitchen are shared by all the guests, and equipped with everything essential. There are a six, a four, and a double bed dorm. All bedding and towels are provided. There is WLAN all above the area.

Guest access

Access to the kitchen, large barbecue area, bathrooms, gardens, river, forest.

Interaction with guests

I live in the same area so I am never too far away.

Other things to note

The last 200 meters to the mill are dirt road. I recommend to park the car 50 meters above the mill at the parking sign and to descend the last meters on foot, to decide then if you want to park directly in front of the mill. Dinner and breakfast can be prepared for an extra fee.

I stayed here one night on the Caminho Portugues, after walking from Agueda. It's 1.5km from the main trail so at first I was wondering, would it be worth the slight detour? I can tell you now it definitely is. It's a stunningly restored 200-year-old mill, situated in the woods with a stream running through the middle of the property. It's got nice beds, warm blankets, hot showers and all of the other facilities you'd expect from a well equipped hostel. And Niko is a great host who has clearly put a huge amount of work into making the place comfortable. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking to avoid the 'urban' side of the Caminho and experience staying in a natural setting for the night.

Staying at the windmill was definitely a highlight of our trip in Portugal. The windmill is beautifully restored and the surrounding nature absolutely lovely. A fantastic place!

I enjoyed staying here very much. Niko was a wonderful host who complied with all my desires and was always fun to talk with. The location near a village next to the forest and a stream flowing just outside the window is unbeatable. Finally, a comfortable bed and a playful young cat make this place an unforgettably delightful experience. Thanks!

Um lugar lindo! No meio da natureza, todo envolto em árvores, água, o som dos passarinhos, adorámos! Muito bom para descansar! Adorámos a hospitalidade do Niko e as sugestões de passeios.
