Herdade de Moinho Velho 

Herdade de Moinho Velho is a 304 acre (123 hectares) estate. There are 2 large villas, a restored 1 bedroom windmill and a restored working watermill that has a villa situated next to it. These stylish eco-friendly luxury villas offers unrivalled space, tranquility and access to nature. All the properties were completed after an extensive and thorough reconstruction with high-quality materials.

The estate has a small river than runs through the valley, a reservoir, an irrigation canal and an artesian well. This abundant amount of water on the land supports a thriving wildlife. The land contains a substantial number of mature cork trees. It was also extensively planted with younger cork trees roughly 15 years ago.

Similar to Nespereira, the outstanding views are not obstructed by pylons as all the electricity cables are subterranean. The paths surrounding the property and along the river are an ideal way to immerse yourself in nature.

The Watermill
