You Can Stay In A Cute Portuguese Airbnb That Is A Windmill

Looking for a unique romantic getaway? This adorable windmill house on a Portuguese island might be just the ticket.

Inside the windmill

The quaint dwelling opens to a small living space with a sleek white kitchenette, a dining table, and a cozy-looking red loveseat. Cherry wood floors are paired with white walls and exposed rock bordering the windows. A floating spiral staircase leads to an all-white bathroom with a glass-walled shower complete with a window so that you can take in the scenery even while showering off. Further up, the winding staircase ends with the stunning bedroom, lined with stylish wood-paneled walls and panoramic windows that offer uninhibited views of the surrounding sights. One reviewer sums up their experience: "As advertised: Gorgeous views of the ocean and sunsets. Sounds of the wind and waves. Well equipped. The breakfast basket is a truly fantastic touch. 10/10 – highly recommended."

If you are traveling with a bigger party, the listing explains that there are two more lodging accommodations available on the property: one house that can host up to three guests and another that sleeps up to four.

Other highlights

In addition to the windmill's cozy and stylishly decorated interior, the hosts of the property also provide breakfast for guests. "The morning breakfast baskets are full with lots of delicious things to eat and makes a lovely way to start the day by taking it outside for a picnic. Space is laid out well and makes a great home base for exploring the rest of the island," says one review.

As for exploring the island, guests don't have to stray far to take in beautiful sights: a roughly 13,000-square-foot garden full of fruit trees and flowers decorates the property, according to the listing. For those who are up for more adventure, however, the city of Ponta Delgada where the windmill resides has a lot to offer. The city, which is the capital of the Azores, is home to breathtaking crater lakes, volcanos, and historic buildings, according to Trip Advisor
