Casa Mar de Serra, is a country house rebuild from the old “Moleiro’s home. “Moleiro” was the person who used to live and work in the windmill (Moinho in Portuguese). When it was reconstructed over the ruins of the old mill only regional materials were used in order to maintain its idyllic rural environment in total harmony with the Natural Park of Candeeiros.
