A truly spectacular Natural Park location for our lovingly restored Mill (sleeps up to 4) and adjoining Cottage (sleeps 2) with the River Sever passing sweetly by. Surrounded by enchanting botanical gardens with chestnut, cork and olive trees, this is truly a magical place to stay.We look forward to welcoming guests this Summer to enjoy with us our very special place in the shadow of the historic UNESCO hilltop town of Marvao. So much to do here, with wild walking to the hidden Mills on the riverside, or up the craggy hills to wonder at the lovely views of surrounding chestnut and cork forests where you may spot a Bonelli eagle. The Mill , with its 2 bedrooms sleeps 4 and its sister cottage sleeps 2.

Reviewed 17 November 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Ron and Ritsuko gave us the warmest of welcomes on their very nice domain in one of Portugal's most stunning regions. The very charming Mill next to the river was perfect for our 3-day stay, even though to our surprise we had to use the stove in the sitting room in the evening because it got quite chilly in the little valley (despite 30°C during the day). Nice little kitchen, BBQ, swimming pool — everything we wanted or needed is there. The breakfast was excellent as well. In short, a great base to get to know Marvao and its environs.

staying in this lush green valley was a real treat, the mill buildings themselves staying wonderfully cool even during the blistering heat. definitely plan to be back

Management response:

Great, thanks, it was nice to meet you both- hope to see you again. R & R

About the neighbourhood
Local villages and towns retain their authentic portuguese feel. Locals are friendly and the pace of life is slowed so you can take time to appreciate the natural beauty of the surrounding area.
Trips to Local markets where produce is home-grown and vineyards to taste some amazing wines are a must too.
Local Horse-riding is a must.
Getting around
Car essential. Roads very uncrowded and easy to navigate.
Guests will receive full directions and be met on arrival.
