Moinho Mill - Sintra's Watermill
average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

schöne alte Mühle einfach aber sehr authentisch

  • 4 of 5

Die Mühle ist sehr authentisch und gemütlich eingerichtet. die Ausstattung von Küche und Bad ist sehr einfach aber ausreichend.

Der Sitzplatz am Fluss ist sehr schön, leider hatte der Fluss im September nur wenig Wasser. Durch die Lage im Tal liegt die Mühle bereits am frühen Abend im Schatten.

Durch eine doppelte Buchung konnten wir die Mühle erst einen Tag später beziehen, der Vermieter hat uns für die erste Nacht eine Ersatzunterkunft zur Verfügung gestellt. Trotzdem ärgerlich, da viel Zeit für Organisation und Umzug nötig war, insbesondere da die Mühle zur vereinbarten Uhrzeit noch nicht bezugsfertig war.
