눇We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at O Remoinho. Everything was so great, I don't even know where to start. To stay in a refurbished 500-year old windmill is bound to be a unique experience, regardless of the facilities and service. But O Remoinho has everything: comfortable bed, fully furnished kitchen, bycicles, nice garden, barbecue and even hot bread delivered at the door by the hosts every morning! And did I mention a sea view? The space inside the windmill has been arranged in a very intelligent way, and is divided in three levels, kitchen+toilet, lounge, and bedroom. The windmill has been decorated with taste. We especially liked the fact that, unlike other hotels, where huge, impersonal, TV sets dominate the space, in Remoinho there are flowers, fossils, old pictures and other objects of art everywhere, which create a cosy, comfortable, and intimate atmosphere. Everything in the windmill and surrounding area is very nicely and tastefully arranged. One can feel that the project of refurbishing the windmill was really a labour of love. The location is great; it's just 5 minutes walk to the town centre and waterfront, but at the same time, it's in a quiet neighbourhood. Ericeira bus station is just down the road, and so the windmill is also a great base from which to explore the region, including Mafra, Sintra, and Lisbon, all less than 1-hour away by bus. But the best thing of staying in this windmill was the opportunity to meet our kind hosts, Ana and Rute, who treated us like friends and made us feel at home from the first moment. Being able to chat with them over coffee every day was definitely the highlight of our stay in Ericeira. We recommend O Remoinho to everyone looking for a unique and charming place to stay in Ericeira.

눇Ana, our host and owner of the mill, who beautifully restored and converted this 500 year old mill, gave us an unforgettable, warm welcome. We were so taken by Ana's warmth and hospitality. And by her mill. It took Ana four years to renovate, and the work needs to be seen to be believed. Surrounded by a garden of lavender and cobblestone, you will never stay anywhere so wonderful, unique and full of character and comfort. It must be seen to be believed. This was a life experience I will never forget. Oh and the sea view, calmness and the fresh air in the morning was spectacular and rivalled only by the fresh coffee and Ana's friendliness. It really felt like a dream. We stayed for only one night, but I wish we could have stayed longer. We cannot recommend it more highly.
