  The Detail...

The Mill on the Hill is a unique and quirky private home in the gorgeous area of Alentejo, Portugal. Perched on a hilltop with views of rolling green plains, from the Spanish border to the Atlantic coast, The Mills owners let their property out to lucky travellers seeking a spectacular getaway.

Surrounded by a variety of separate walled garden areas, this truly is a picturesque escape and the Mill blends in perfectly with the natural surroundings. Inside is just as stunning, decorated in simple, charming dcor which creates a relaxing and homey vibe. There is a beautiful, traditional wood burning stove in the dining area which is situated through an archway from the lovely and well stocked kitchen. Large windows not only allow you to never miss the brilliant views, but also give The Mill a bright and welcoming feel. The living room is cosy and comfy, stocked full of books, DVDs and board games. The winding stair case is decorated with pretty fairy lights making nights-in a serene and calming experience. The three bedrooms all ooze comfort, with squashy beds and soft bedding. The roof bedroom has a king size bed, calming lighting and a relaxingly simple feel to it. On the floor below are the remaining two rooms, one a charming double and the other a single, with a set of bunk beds and another single bed.

Outside there is a sheltered dining area, decorated with fairy lights, making for beautiful al fresco dining and thats not even mentioning the views of the night sky. The Milky Way is visible and there are often plenty of shooting stars to wish on. On top of this, there is also an outdoor breakfast area overlooking the stunning views of the plains and with the cool morning mists creeping across them, this is another meal spent in unbeatable natural surroundings. In the summer months a pool is put up, again overlooking the breath taking scenery. For kicking back with a book there is a hammock strung up between gorgeous almond and olive trees, perfect for escaping the sun. For kids there is plenty of room to run around and a tree swing to keep them busy.

Whilst The Mill on the Hill is desirably secluded, the local village shops and restaurant are in fact only a ten minute walk away! A short drive into the nearest town and there are even more delightful restaurants (the owners are more than happy to recommend the best) as well as stunning beaches. Closer to home are fantastic lakes and country walks all of which will make you feel at one with nature and utterly calm and relaxed.
