Welcome to a restored old windmill (accommodates 4 pax) located at Ribamar, around 1 km from the well known surf spot beach Ribeira D´ilhas and 5 km from Ericeira.
“Moinho do Mar” is a windmill with 3 floors, prepared to grind more than one cereal, namely wheat and maize. Its construction began in the final of the XIX century, and the laboring finished in the sixth decade of the XX century. After that it was transformed into a place of residence(URL HIDDEN)
This mill is located near RIBAMAR, in a small private property (900 m2 surface, surrounded by an outside wall), about 45 Km (by highway) from LISBON airport and 5 Km from Ericeira.
The pretty villa of ERICEIRA, with its several small and lovely beaches, has been, in October 2011, officially recognized “Natural Reserve of Surf”, by the Save the Waves Coalition, being number one in Europe and the second in the world.
Amongst the nearest beaches of the mill are the famous surf beaches of “Ribeira de Ilhas”, considered one of the best places for surfing in the world, “Coxos” and “Foz do Lizandro”.
A little further away are the beaches of “São Lourenço”, “Canada”, “S. Julião”, all of them protected by rocky mountains.
In the villa of MAFRA, about 11km distant, there is the monumental “Palácio Real de Mafra” and “Convento de Mafra”, constructed by order of the king D. João IV, between 1717 and 1740.
At 25 km is Sintra, a romantic villa - which gave a warm welcome to Lord Byron - that has been immortalized by several Portuguese writers. In that villa is interesting to visit the “Palácio da Vila”, the “Castelo da Pena” and the “Castelo dos Mouros” and the wonderful surroundings.
For playing golf, the “DOLCE CAMPO REAL”, in Torres Vedras, is about 30 minutes from the mill, to the north.

•At the left side of that zone is the private apartment of the host couple and the remaining open area.
