We all loved staying at this villa which is ideally located in a quiet and away from all and yet close to any shops (Lidl, Intermarché, Aldi) , restaurants and cafés. Plenty of beaches to choose from and for those with adventure spirit there is plenty to do. Alentejo is very traditional province and although it has not merited the development as it should have, it offers real and genuine Portuguese sense of holidays, not so present in Algarve where speculation for quick buck approach is visible.
The sound of silence throughout the day is something we all miss very much. There is nothing like to rise and shine every morning and not to have to bother with weather forecast. The villa is nestled in a complex with other villas and a communal swimming pool gives an opportunity to get acquainted with other holidaymakers.
A true hidden jewel.
We have just returned from a 3-week holiday in this comfortable, well-equipped house. Even though the other villas on the site were occupied, it was incredibly tranquil and peaceful and we really felt that we had managed to "get away from it all." The site is well-maintained and the site managers are easy to contact and very friendly. The pool and gardens are beautiful. We made good use of the outdoor barbecue and tennis court, and our children loved the private garden. The villa is located in a rural area offering lovely walks in the pretty countryside, yet only 5 minutes' drive from supermarkets and amenities. We loved walking up the rural track every evening to say hello to the local sheep, and seeing how many unusual birds we could spot. Half an hour's drive to the stunning northern Algarve, 20 minutes' drive from the gorgeous beaches at Zambujeira and Vila Nova de Milfontes, this is a fantastic location and we were very happy here - and will definitely come back! Thank you Jenny, your house is lovely :-)
The villa is situated in superb rural location, with footpaths through a large valley of cork oaks and wild flowers. The local protected coastline of the Costa Vincentina National Park has beautiful sandy beaches within a 10min drive this coastline provides great opportunities for surfing, and body boarding. Milfontes is a thriving Portuguese seaside resort where the beaches are ideal for families with smaller children. It has an old centre, pleasant shops, lively cafes and superb restaurants specializing in local dishes of fresh fish and black pork. Odemira is 3km away and has cafes restaurants and a range of shops including supermarkets. You will get a taste of the 'real' Portugal and its relaxed way of life. An easy day trip will take you to the busier beaches of the Algarve and excellent golf facilities. A 30 minute drive could take you to the Monchique Mountains, and to many historic towns.
