Holiday house

Casa do Moinho

Casa do Moinho means house with the mill. Our old granite holiday home is located on the river 'Rio Vouga' in the beautiful green region of Alta Beira in the Dão region. Delicious wine is made in the Dão region. Scattered in the green hills with vineyards are small
charming villages.

We have bought Casa do Moinho in 2016 and have it refurbished. We have kept everything as much as possible in the original state. Such as the old fireplace in the living room. The house can accommodate up to 4 people. Downstairs, adjacent to the terrace and the veranda, is a (in the summer always cool) lovely living and dining kitchen with dishwasher, Nespresso machine (cups available) and all other amenities. A staircase leads upstairs to a landing where the 2 bedrooms and bathroom with toilet and walk-in shower.

In the living room you will find lots of games, a bookcase full of books and a record player with singles and elpees. Outside is a beautiful terrace where you can relax. There is a barbecue available. The saltwater swimming pool of 4 × 8 meters with terrace and sun loungers
is another place to relax and enjoy.

Casa do Moinho is walled and is free but not isolated. You will find our first neighbors 300-500 meters further. The area is quiet and safe and there is a breathtaking silence and tranquility in the morning and evening. We are still impressed every time by the beautiful starry sky. We hope that you will enjoy our paradise as much as we do!

During a long holiday in 2009 we also visited Portugal. Since then we are in love with the Portuguese people, nature, tranquility, simplicity: in short everything. When we drove back to the Netherlands we said: we will be back. We did this and bought our casa in 2016. A local contractor has refurbished the house, where as much as possible the originality was kept intact. We feel at home there and we hope you feel that too. Our local managers are ready for you.

Additional information

Portugal is een echt wandelland. Vanaf ons huis zijn veel wandel mogelijkheden: zelf uitgezette wandelingen van 5 tot 8 km en drie PR routes van 15, 18 en 21 km. Deze wandelingen zijn goed uitgezet.
Iets verder rijden, in de Serra da Estrela, barst het van de wandel mogelijkheden. Deze wandelingen kan je doen met of zonder overnachting.
Ook in de Douro, bij Penalva do Castelo zijn wandel mogelijkheden. In de casa liggen wandelroutes en gidsen.
In addition to the old miller house that has been converted into a holiday home, there is a water mill on our property. The mill was made available to the local farmer to grind his corn into flour. The old forno (oven) is still next to the house. There is an old Roman road crossing past the house, which is still used by hikers and local farmers. The piece of grassland to the river also belongs to our house, together with the left part of the mill. Holiday home Casa do Moinho in Beira Alta is located on the river 'Rio Vouga'. In the green hills of the Dão region you will still encounter horse & wagon and you can stroll through the narrow streets of the small villages with village cafes and local markets. The region is also excellent for sporting activities such as hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding or outdoor sports.
In de regio Beiras vind je mooie steden zoals Viseu, Aveiro, Coimbra en Lamego. Ook de Douro streek is een aanrader. Hier komt de Port vandaan en vind je veel valleien met druivenranken en rivieren. De Douro kan je goed combineren met Porto of Lamego. Als je thuiskomt van een dagje weg, voel je de rust weer terugkeren. Dat is wat gasten tegen ons zeggen.
Wist je dat in onze streek je veelal hetzelfde betaalt voor een flesje wijn in een restaurant als in de supermarkt? Dat is toch fantastisch. Los van alle heerlijke betaalbare wijntjes is alles gewoon goed aan de Portugese wijn. Probeer zeker de lichte Vino Verde eens als aperitief!

Hou je van goed en puur eten? Dan zit je goed in de Beira. Wij zijn zelf gek op Pulpo, op ‘je tong smeltende’ inktvistentakels gemarineerd in knoflook. Andere favorieten zijn een stoofpot van heerlijk rundvlees of Balcahau. Het eten is basic maar juist goed en smaakvol. Uit eten is vaak goedkoper dan zelf koken. Heerlijk toch als je op vakantie bent!
