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. Both have outside eating and sitting platforms by the riverside.It is ideal for nature lov...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.

Comfortable, quality beds and bedding, well equipped kitchens for self-catering. There's even a restored forno (outdoor bread/pizza oven) for outdoor cooking, if you wish Locally there's the splendid historic towns of Marvao and Castelo de Vide as well as the Roman ruins. Very lovely times can be spent with a guided horse ride through the natural Park, or walks along the old smugglers route to the Spanish border.The natural beauty of the area is unsurpassed and the pleasure of this truly eco-friendly, 'touching nature' holiday is unbeatable.

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.
