Moinho do Lebre

Location and atmosphere

The accommodation Moinho do Lebre – Mill of the Hare - is situated in the Estremadura, looking out over hilly vineyards dotted with villages and fields as far as the eye can see. The landscape is stunningly beautiful, especially at sunset when the light plays on the buildings. The accommodation consists of a small traditional windmill and a recently built rural bungalow. In the past, the windmill was used to grind grain; today it is a renovated, rustic guest house, but inside you will still find all of the original gearing. Because of the mill's conical structure, its rooms all have different dimensions and plenty of character.


Both the mill and the bungalow have a double bedroom and a living room with sofa beds, a bathroom and a kitchen. Guests can cook and dine in the small yard. For guests there are bikes for rent.

Surroundings and activities

Well worth a visit are the protected nature area of Montejunto, the Berlengas islands and the beautifull towns of Óbidos, Peniche, Caldas de Rainha and Santarem. The famous Western Wineroute and beautifull Atlantic beaches are recommended.
