The watermill is situated in one of the greenest and most picturesque stretches of the valley of river Neiva which is quite small and you can swim in it.

To many people the Minho/Costa verde region is the most beautiful part of Portugal with its green valleys, terraced vines and wooded hills and miles of virtually unspoilt, uncrowded white sand beaches. The Atlantic coast is just 6-8km away. Many other parts of Minho are attractive to walkers. Wine lovers will enjoy exploring the vinhos verdes light effervescent wines specially enjoyable with local varied and well tasted gastronomy.

A passage through the country discovering some secrets of the historical and cultural heritage with many Celtic sites, medieval castles, gothic and baroque cathedrals is a must. The medieval towns of Viana do Castelo and Ponte de Lima are 10-25km away which are famous for locally produced pottery hand crafts and unique cobble stoned historical centres. Oporto is 35 minutes driving and worth a visit to explore the wine lodges and to explore the magnificent vineyards of the river Douro.

The all property is fenced and walled and is approached by a private lane through a wood of oaks, acácias, pine and eucalyptus trees which provide plenty of shade and exceptional tranquillity. Outside there is a garden principally given over to mown grass bordering the river. This an idyllic spot. A dream to reach since childhood fairy tales. Enjoy a resting atmosphere watching wild life: rabbits, squirrels, eagles and otters.
