LUXURIOUS COUNTRY HOME WITH POOL IN BEAUTIFUL & PRIVATE DREAM LOCATION

Sao Teotonio Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4 double bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, sleeps 8

This typical Alentejo style farm house is located in a very private, peaceful and secluded 8 hectare (20 acre) property, gated and fully fenced with stunning views of the Alentejo countryside. It has been meticulously cared for by its owners and is a beautifully furnished large family home with many Asian antiques, fused with a rustic Portuguese farmhouse style. There are 4 large double bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities plus an additional separate family bathroom. The house has a fully equipped country style kitchen with all mod cons. The large lounge has a flat screen TV, DVD player, satellite TV (Portuguese), iPod docking station and a wood burning stove. The house is centrally heated for the cooler months. The large dining area has a table that can accommodate up to 10 people.

Outside & Gardens: The house has two double doors that lead out from the lounge and dining room to a very large patio that has a 10m x 4.5m swimming pool. Sun beds and a large umbrella are provided. The attractive pool house with a hammock provide another shady retreat during the warm summer months. The well tended lawns and gardens have many flowers, shrubs and trees, including Cork, Eucalyptus, Olive, Peach, Willow and Medronho trees. This rural location next to the Parque Natural attracts many beautiful birds, including eagles. At the rear of the house are two spacious eating areas, one of which is covered and nicely shaded in a typical rustic Alentejo style. The outdoor dining table can accommodate 8 people comfortably. The rear patio area also has a traditional Portuguese brick built BBQ area with a preparation sink. It should be noted that the house is reached by a long and steep private road which leads up from the lower part of the property. Therefore a car is essential.

Additional note: The house can also be rented as a 3 bedroom rental (not including the owner's master bedroom suite) at a reduced rate. Please contact the owner for rental price details

A LOVELY RETREAT IN THE COUNTRYSIDE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property of Easter break with another family. There were nine of us total and we had a great holiday. After quite a long drive in from Lisbon, we were thrilled to see this beautiful home looking exactly as it does in the photographs. Literally not one thing out of place! The owners were there to greet us and were extremely kind and welcoming. They even had cold beers (and basic groceries too) at the ready for us! The home and grounds were neat, clean, and very well maintained. The home is spacious and comfortably accommodated four adults and five children with ease. It had everything there that one could need.

While a good distance from the main attractions you might find in the guidebooks, there are many places to explore in the surrounding area. The town in which the home is located is a small one and not very used to outsiders, but one can still find everything you'd need for provisions during your stay. Overall, it is a fantastic place for a warm get-away in the countryside.

Owner's Response: Our lovely house is also easy to get to from Faro airport - only 1 hour 15 mins. We can provide easy to follow directions from both Lisbon and Faro airports. We also recommend a stop over of one or two nights in the beautiful city of Lisbon and are happy to arrange accommodation, car hire and restaurant reservations, as well as recommend a few special attractions to visit during a short stay.

AMAZING PROPERTY, STUNNING LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
I've been fortunate enough to work as a producer for a tv travel show, and therefore I've seen lot's of nice places around the globe. Monte Paraiso Escondido still impressed me beyond expectations. This is such a wonderful secluded and comfortable house, with a personal feel. It really feels like you're staying in a friend's house, who left you all their beautiful things to enjoy. Some highlights in random order; The well equipped kitchen and outdoor BBQ (greatly appreciated by our group of foodies). The pool (is big enough to actually swim). Everything worked properly (eg; shower / water pressure, washing machine / easy to use, etc). I stayed here for one week with a group of 6 and we had the best holiday imaginable. The secluded and beautiful location of the house gives it that 'extra' why I would certainly book it again. It's a Portugal getaway at it's best.

Owner's Response: We are fortunate that our house is in such a wonderful private location. It's Alentejo at its best. Our family and friends love to come and visit us and we enjoy having guests and sharing this magical place. This was the main reason we thought of renting our beautiful home, for like minded people to have a wonderful holiday in the magnificent Alentejo in a real "home from home".

The house is situated adjacent to the Parque Natural do Sudoeste in the beautiful and tranquil Alentejo countryside, dotted with sleepy villages from times gone by. Only 9km to the town of Sao Teotonio, which has shops, cafes, restaurants, and all modern conveniences. The nearest beach is at Zambujeira do Mar, only a 20 minute drive away. The unspoiled coastline of the Costa Vicentina has some of the most spectacular beaches in Portugal and many are a haven for surfers. The beaches and golf courses of the Western Algarve are also less than an hour away. Exploring inland provides the perfect opportunity to see the rolling hills of Alentejo. The stunning Santa Clara-a -Velha lake is nearby where you can picnic, fish and bathe in the warm, clear water. The beautiful old town of Monchique high in the hills is a 45 minute drive away where you can visit the old spa and the 16th century church with magnificent views all the way to the Algarve coast.
