Ourique House Rental Photos and Description
Perfect base for exploring the Alentejo & Algarve, a relaxing or walking holiday
With BREATH-TAKING PANORAMIC VIEWS of the unspoilt Altentejo countryside, this beautifully restored Portuguese villa provides the perfect setting for a holiday in the sun.
Its sparkling 8m x 4m SWIMMING POOL, with stone-coloured mosaics, to reflect the natural outdoor setting, a lovely shaded area next to it and ample SUN LOUNGERS and outdoor table and chairs, is the perfect place for relaxing, sunbathing and enjoying the fabulous local climate.
A BARBECUE next to the house and another outdoor table and chairs, with endless views, provides more options for al fresco dining and a great entertainment flow.
It is SUNNY AND HOT for most of the year and the traditional houses are built to withstand the heat, providing a COOL, COMFORTABLE and relaxing environment in a tranquil setting.
The house has MANY HOME COMFORTS whilst retaining its traditional charm and style, with COMFORTABLE BEDS and furnishings. It is VERY WELL EQUIPPED for every self-catering need.
There are books, DVDs and games for entertainment and GOOD MOBILE PHONE RECEPTION.
It is very well positioned for a relaxing and peaceful holiday with EASY ACCESS from the village of Santana da Serra and the IC1, the secondary route between Lisbon and Albufeira, making it an IDEAL LOCATION from which to explore the lower Alentejo and the Algarve.
UNSPOILT BY TOURISM, the local towns and many quaint villages stand timelessly in the sun and steeped in history.
THE VILLAGE HAS A WONDERFUL BAKERY and local provisions, such as home grown fruit and vegetables can be purchased in the village stores as well as grocery supplies and meat from the butcher. Black pork is a speciality of the region.
Wandering the narrow, winding streets or enjoying good cheap tasty meals at the local restaurant and snack bar, you can take in the LEISURELY PACE of the place. Santana da Serra has a bank, ATM machine and pharmacy.
There are many LOCAL MARKETS, ACTIVITIES and FESTIVALS and HORSE RIDING is popular with 2 stables in the area.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a really lovely time and enjoyed ourselves enormously. You are really lucky to have such a lovely villa in such a wonderful area.
There were too many highlights to mention. Fabulous walks, storks, hoopoes, the restaurant in the village of Santana da Serra where the people were fabulous...
