The perfect holiday

  • Submitted: Nov 7, 2012
  • Stayed: Sep 2012
It made our honeymoon the perfect holiday! We really enjoyed our stay at Talegre, where a week felt like a month of relaxation, tranquility and summer fun. A special thank you for the warm welcome. It was very joyful to find a bottle of champagne with the flowers at the kitchen table! What a kind personal touch, thank you!
The whole stay was really great.

Everything the description promised

Talegre is everything the description promised: secluded setting, well maintained, relaxing pool and shady rest area by the pool. Ideal to leave the stressy world behind and come to terms with the slow pace the sleepy village deserves. Within reasonable driving distance, there are seaside restaurants, shops and beaches. The rolling Alentejo landscape is all around. The house and the pool area are surrounded by flowers and bushes, lovely to have breakfast beside the house, or sip a glass of wine by the pool. It was obvious to us that this is a property that is loved and cherished by its owners, not just a place to exploit. We liked it so much we would like to return - or dream of spending the rest of our life here.

Secluded peaceful gem near Alentejo coast

  • Submitted: Aug 27, 2012

Talegre is a gem of a vacation villa, tucked away behind a small hill outside Sao Luis. Peaceful, beautifully landscaped and private. We particularly loved the wonderful gazebo by the pool, ideal for a glass of wine at sunset.
Even at the height of summer the house remained cool.
Talegre was an ideal house for us to rest, relax, unwind and read.
We loved exploring the many nearby beaches and hiking trails along the cliffs of the Alentejo coast.
We look forward to coming back to Talegre and would definitely recommend it to friends.

Fantastic accommodation, superb pool

  • Submitted: Jun 28, 2012

Talegre is a beautiful place, fantastic accommodation, superb pool with a welcome area to get in the shade if needed on those hot Alentejo afternoons. All of the rooms very comfortable and the kitchen is superbly equipped with all the utensils etc. you need, in particular the very important cork screw J.
The location means you can have relax by the pool, explore some wonderful empty beaches, spend lovely evenings on the terrace with cheese, olives and the local wine, or visit either the villages of São Luis, Cercal or Vila Nova de Milfontes, all of which are extremely friendly and have great places to dine.
This is the best possible place if you are looking for a relaxing break.

A touch of Barbados in Portugal

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 26, 2011
  • Stayed: Sep 2011
Come here for peace, space, charm, rustic location and a beautiful swimming pool. Congratulations to the owners on a very high quality, well-designed and attractive location with touches of luxury like the fridge right by the pool to keep your ice cream and jugs of sangria chilled during the day and the beautiful thick scent of jasmine bushes during the evening. Lying back on the deck with its imaginative marquee-style shade, sipping cold drinks and lazing about between dips will make you half-imagine you are in Barbados. Fantastico!
And if you can bear to leave and go out for the day, really good beaches and excellent restaurants are 20 minutes away at Villa Nova.

Everything was super! Swimming pool, barbecue one night and especially the peaceful nights at the porch and long breakfast in the mornings at the side of the house! Loved your small library, full of very interesting novels and essays! We will will back hopefully! Best place around Sao Luis we ever had! (Madrid, Spain)

We really enjoyed the holiday and would seriously consider coming back to Talgre in the future, it was great! The property is made particularly by the pool and seating area plus the general 'rural' location which is great to get away from things. (The Bakers, UK)

The pictures just dont do the house and grounds justice! It is absolutely beautiful and we feel we have stayed in Portugal's best kept secret! The house was so quiet and secluded, we thoroughly enjoyed the peace and tranquility! We all LOVE the pool. We found the nearby beaches and ate salty sardines and doughnuts on the beach...the best EVER! Thanks again for a truly wonderful time! (Rachael Bates, UK)
