Situated in the Natural Park of the S.W. Alentejo, Vila Nova de Milfontes is known as the princess of the Alentejo, and rightly so.
The river Mira opens out into the Atlantic ocean at this small fishing town, and the area boasts some of the most picturesque beaches in the whole of Portugal and is very popular with surfers and other water sport enthusiasts.
Benefitting from it's own microclimate, it enjoys pleasant temperatures year-round (unlike many locations just a short distance away which can suffer from very high Summer temperatures and even frost in the winter-time.)
This enchanting rustic cottage has been fully renovated using a combination of original and modern materials maintaining character whilst creating efficiency. The traditional taipa (rammed earth) and natural stonewalls are perfect for the local climate. Being 70cm thick they offer excellent strength and durability combined with high insulation, making the house easy to heat in winter, and staying naturally cool in summer. Two stonewalls have been restored to their natural beauty.
