This property is a charming, period cottage. It is tastefully decorated, mixing well old artifacts and modern furniture, and very comfortable. It has a private garden that is great for relaxing in. Beatriz was very responsive to emails and a joy to deal with. We had a wonderful holiday and recommend this cottage.
Lovely cottage in the Alentejo
This is a lovely property with comfortable beds and a very private, sunny garden. The owner, Beatriz, was very welcoming and pleased to meet us. There are good restaurants in the nearby town which is worth a visit in itself and the ancient city of Evora is only 30 minutes away. We can recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a rural retreat in the centre of beautiful countryside.
A delightful village property in Ilhas
We stayed here for a fortnight in May & from the beginning, the owner, Beatriz Olivera, went out of her way to be helpful & accommodating. This is a quiet village just outside Arraiolos, & we found the house clean & comfortable. We parked in the garden from the rear entrance of the property, rather than on the narrow street at the front - you need to take this carefully as it is a tight turn. We recommend the local café bar, A Horta - the owner speaks fluent English & we were treated as old friends. Arraiolos is a picturesque town, & this area is rather free of tourists, but the towns & pousadas are delightful. The local people we found were extremely friendly & helpful, even without English. Our thanks to Beatriz for a memorable stay.
Foi uma experiência deliciosa desfrutar essa casa acolhedora, cuidada nos detalhes e com um lindo jardim. Muito bem localizada para os passeios no Alentejo. A casa é bem equipada com tudo que se precisa. Adoramos a biblioteca e fizemos jantares deliciosos usando alecrim e limões do quintal.
Destaque para a Dona Beatriz tão atenciosa e delicada conosco. Recomendamos.

A proprietária é simpatiquissima. A vila é catita e pequena mas tem um restaurante com take away! Adorei os dias que lá estive.
Grande maison avec du caractère
Madame Beatriz est une propriétaire très attentionnée qui réagit très rapidement si un problème se présente.
Cette grande maison est super bien équipée. Tout est fourni, même le bois pour alimenter la cheminée du salon.
Cette cheminée a été grandement appréciée ; car en mars, il a fait froid et ces vieilles maisons sont difficiles à chauffer.
Le petit village de Ilhas est charmant, dommage que les nombreux chiens en gâtent la quiétude.
