MONTE BRANCO consists of farmhouse cottages set around a garden full of palmtrees and flowers bordering the lawn, an oasis of green amongst the summer dryness, when a dip in the pool is necessary to cool off. The spring displays the most spectacular countryside full of colour and wild flowers. A nature lover and birdwatchers paradise. The house has a big open fireplace, making winter breaks possible...a great place to get a group of friends of family together (sleeps up to 26 people) to spend Christmas or New Year, or just beat the the 'winter blues'. The pool area has a covered barbecue and dining area, and has wonderful panoramic views to the ancient fortified town of Monsaraz, which is dramatically illuminated at night. The recently restored animal barn The Celeiro provides a large open space (100m2) with a large covered varandah (50m2) for guests to get together, sit by the big fireplace in the winter, or to enjoy the shady cool of the open varandah in summer. Great meeting space.
