Guestbook comments from the owner

2 Wochen pure Erholung auf dem Monte d'avó, in der " Casa da

Tia" sind nun leider vorbei.

Ein super schöner und ruhiger Platz um vor allem sehr kinderfreundlich.

Unsere Töchter schwärmen immer noch von den Pferden, aber auch von Meike

und den anderen Mädels.

wir freuen uns auf ein baldiges Wiedersehen!!!

lovely little cottage in a beautiful rural location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great holiday in a fantastic location. The pool and out side cooking facilities were great, the house was small but very nice, we wanted to be outside as much as possible and enjoy the beaches and the lovely Alentejo area. Meike and the girls who helped with the horse riding were very friendly and helpful.

Casa da Tia ( Aunties Cottage ) is situated just outside the centre of Cercal de Alentejo, where you'll find everything you need, supermarket, banks, post-office, restaurants and coffee bars with lovely terraces, kiosk for your newspaper and or tabaco, pharmacy, playpark for children and various shops.

Nearby at about 10km the famous Porto Covo, with its lovely beaches and nice centre with sea view and lots of nice restaurants and terraces. Porto Covo got famous because of a song about it.

Also nearby the village Vila Nova de Milfontes with breathtaking views, and again lots of restaurants and shops.

A bit further you'll find the town Odemira, definitely worth a visit! Odemira lies at about 24km

At about 36km you'll find theme park Badoca Park, a great day out for the whole family! Visit wild life animals, such as giraffes, monkees, birds of prey etc and watch them as you drive by in either your own car or in a small train. Also fun rides and shows. Definitely a must go there!

Sines is the harbour town, that's where you can buy the best fish and shellfish!

Grandola is a bit further away, at 68km, it has a very large supermarket Continente, and a train station with a direct and fast connection with the centre of Lisbon.

More to the interior of the country you will find Ourique, with historical buildings and a watch tower, still remaining from the city walls. Here you will also find a a very large supermarket. At 46km

Lagos is also a good days out. Visit the Algarve, wander around at the marine of Lagos. The town centre of Lagos is wonderful restored, so many restaurants with lovely terraces that you won't know which one to pick! At about 65km from Cercal.
