Moinho do Maia - Casa do Moleiro and Casa do Moinho

Moinho do Maia Cottages are self catering accommodation located in the Natural Park near Lisbon, Portugal

These two cottages are a superb conversion of a windmill and former workers houses.  They are located in Rio Maior, within the Natural Park of Serra d'Aire and Candeeiros.

Moinho do Maia had a very grand opening in 1972 by Marcelo Caetano, a successful politician of the Portuguese dictatorial regime.  His titles included National Commissioner of the "Mocidade Portuguesa", Minister of the Colonies, President of the Corporative Chamber and Minister of the Presidency.

In September 1969, with the Dictator Salazar chronically ill, he took over as President of the Council, and was overthrown on 25 April 1974.

A few years ago both the mill and the adjacent cottage were again, extensively renovated and tastefully furnsihed. The accomodation is described as follows :

This cottage is not suitable for very young children due to the many steps in the tower of the mill.
