Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Hereford, England

A delightful village property in Ilhas

  • 5 of 5

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.

Muy tranquilo

  • 4 of 5

La casa está muy limpia y el jardín bien cuidado. Hay aire acondicionado y bomba de calor q nos vino muy bien porque hizo frio y la casa no tiene calefaccion. Los gallos te despiertan muy temprano y solo se oye el sonido de pájaros y ovejas. El pueblo tiene un parque para niños y unas pistas de futbol muy bien acondicionadas gratuitas. Es lo que buscabamos para estos dias. Lo recomiendo para quien quiera tranquilidad, campo, leer un libro en un precioso jardín y nada mas.
