I booked my stay at Moinhos Velhos after suffering chronic illness for many years,(type2 diabetes!). My blood sugar levels had been dangerously high for many years (16mmol's, morning reading!). I was in constant muscular pain, blurred vision and had kidney inflammation. I prayed that Moinhos could help me by using their well known fasting/juicing regime. I knew their methods had...

We have just returned from MV following what for me, as a newcomer to the world of detox/ retreat and for my wife a meditator retreat-ant and yoga practioner of some years standing, was a totally life changing and enhancing experience. From arrival to departure we were enthralled by the team, the surroundings and the amazingly beneficial and therapeutic content...

Having spent the last 13 years cleansing/fasting in the same resort in Thailand I was both excited and a little bit nervous about going to Moinhos Velhos and trying something 'new'. Safe to say any anxieties I had were completely and truly unfounded. From the minute I arrived with my mum (we were the latest arrivals with all of the...

I went for a ten day juice and body cleanse. I can't recommend enough. I got into my body in a way I never had. I relaxed fully. I cleaned my belly. My bowels (months later now) have never been more regular. The staff is outstanding, the juice is fresh and the grounds are immaculate. Do yourself a favor and...

Being at Moinhos, doing the cleanse, living there, getting to know the people working there was a true blessing. Not only did we clean our bodies, but our minds, our emotions. The environment was carefully taken care of, the pool had some flies in it sometimes (but if we asked, somebody would remove them haha, so really it wasn´t a...

“Go for the mill rooms or shared cottages. These are charming and the more recently refurbished of whats on offer. Ask about towels , we were told to bring additional. Actually we didn't really need them and could actually have travelled with hand luggage if hadn't packed them!”

“The cottages have a pellet stove in addition to the steam heater which is nice if you are coming in the winter months and want a little higher heat. The rooms in the old mill are the most charming, an ancient stone mill that was rescued and turned in to two really neat small rooms.”
