The windmill was exactly what we wanted and expected. It was cosy and well-appointed. Perfect for a relaxing trip, we spent our days reading, cooking and eating - reveling in the quiet. The 360 degree views from the top bedroom were a joy to wake up to and our evening fires were warm and romantic. A lovely place to stay.

The "Windmill of the Sun" is a fabulous property in stunning surroundings. The views are breathtaking. We found the property to be extremely well appointed and the pool and barbeque were a lovely bonus. Tavira is a quaint little place with several restaurants and only 25 minutes by car. A marvellous holiday destination!
