Moinhos Velhos Detox, Lagos

Nestled in a secluded valley with an abundance of quartz crystal naturally embedded in the Earth, Moinhos Velhos is in equal parts beautiful, energising and regenerative! Here we wake up to the creative life force of nature and the songs of the birds in the morning and retire with the silence of the stars at night.

Moinhos Velhos means "The Old Mills". In the days before the Barragem da Bravura (Dam) was built this was an operating water mill, and all the neighboring farmers would bring their produce to be milled here. Apparently this goes back many hundreds of years.

The site itself covers 16 hectares but is within an area of several thousand hectares of natural beauty, and whilst we are in one of the most tranquil locations you can imagine, tucked in besides the magnificent Barragem, we are also remarkably well located in terms of key amenities.

By car, we are only one hour from the airport at Faro, 15 minutes from the city of Lagos and 20 minutes from the nearest beaches. We welcome you!

By Air

Faro, Algarve, Portugal is an international airport with direct flights to  most major European cities.
For those cities that do not have a direct flight, connection is made at Lisbon.


By Train or Bus

From Lagos there is train and bus service to all major European cities.

By Car

The A22 East West motorway across the Algarve is just 10 minutes away, which is fantastically convenient but also means we are not disturbed by any noise.
Once off the motorway, you simply follow the N125 and N125-9 right to the Barragem.
