          A wonderful retreat away from it all.

          Casas Caiadas is set in a beautiful remote location in the heart of the rural Portuguese farming community where agriculture meets wilderness. Casas Caiadas is stunning in its simplicity, retaining the structure of the century’s old water mill, finished in smooth white painted walls featuring natural stone nooks and crannies. Internally old rustic furniture contrasting with contemporary mod cons made for a relaxing ambience. The beach style infinity pool is of a real state of the art design great for both paddlers and swimmers alike. We really appreciated having breakfast made for us each morning with an amazing choice of food to keep you going all day. Whilst we were enjoying our breakfast our beds were being made and bathroom facilities cleaned. Each morning before breakfast and before the sun got too hot, those of us, who managed to get up, went for walks or jogs out along the isolated lanes that meander through the ancient olive groves. It was so nice just to hear the sounds of the wildlife and see unspoilt countryside all around. We had a traditional Portuguese fish dish cooked for us in the villa on our first night which was of the highest standard. It was our preference to eat in on subsequent evenings taking in turns to cook in the well equipped kitchen. The nearest fully stocked supermarket is some distance away but visits can be combined with day trips to places of interest; we especially recommend a visit to the walled village of Monsaraz. Compared to the UK we found the local roads almost deserted and parking easy and free. The stars are quite spectacular after dark as you look up from this rural setting. It can make you ponder your existence on planet earth as you spot another shooting star across the night sky. For my wife the highlight of our stay was laying pool side in this peaceful and enchanting environment. For me it was exploring the olive grove wilderness walking alone or on mountain bikes with my son. My daughter enjoyed the opportunity to do some undisturbed research reading in the cool inspiring space that was the old water mill. All in all it was a lovely & memorable family holiday made the more so by the attention to detail and consideration of the owner Mario Domingues.
