Casa Moinho da Porta

Last year after the Knitting and Stitching Show at Ally Pally in London, we went to Portugal for a week's holiday for some necessary rest & relaxation. We stayed at a wonderfully magical spot in the north - Casa Moinho da Porta - particularly quiet and luxurious.







We had a great week pottering around the northern part of Portugal and would recommend it to anyone. Portugal is a lovely country and the people so friendly. The owner of the villa was a very nice person and he even had fresh bread rolls delivered to our door every morning. We couldn't swim unfortunately as it was a little too cold but we enjoyed the spot and did what we do well at home - sitting out doors in the evening with our glass of wine and nibbles.
First pic is the view looking into the villa from above - that's our bedroom on the left.







This pic- look at the wonderful autumn leaves on the walls looking into the villa - that's our wine and nibbles spot.
Pic below is the lounge area - Ian's nightly snooze spot.







The 4th pic is the garden and water fall outside the back door.
The villa was built over an old mill so there was plenty of water rushing around everywhere.

What a great place for a holiday, I am so envious. Congrats on the Hurricanes win but I am sad for the Brumbies who lost.

Cheers Helen
