Reguengos de Monsaraz Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
1 to 8 bedrooms 1 to 6 bathrooms (sleeps 2 to 26)

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.

What a wonderful place to celebrate New Year with all my friends and family. Lots of cooking in the well equipped kitchens, big room with a huge fireplace and lots of firewood supplied. The children loved the distant fireworks at midnight see from the varandah....great place to party!

Ideal family gathering between March and November

We had an excellent long WE in Monte-Branco from November 8th to 11th. 7 adults and two young children (2 years old) stayed in Casa Forno.
The weather (still summer like) really helped, but here are the highlights of our stay and the accommodation:
- stunning location in the quiet countryside with direct view to Monsaraz castle (which makes a really nice visit for a day), easy access (by car) for a day or more to the Unesco's world heritage city of Evora, near-by walks and sightseeing of ancient dolmens&menhirs.
- charming old farm house (still fully equipped) with fire place, outdoor swimming pool and wide relaxing terrace.
- excellent reception and service, with nice possibilities to have delicious catering/diner (e.g. when you arrive or for last evening).
In a nutshell, highly recommended between March and November (winter months may be a bit cold considering it is an old farm house).

other things to mention:
- you need a car to go there (a bit more than 2h from Lisbon airport) and enjoy the sights around. The owner gave us really good indications how to reach the place (even by night).
- This is an old farm house, clean, fully equipped and with a charming style and atmosphere. Still not for those looking for fully modern apartment/villa.
