Fantastic house, beautiful terraces and pool

  • 5 of 5

A very tranquil location, with lovely views from the terrace. The house is spacious and well-equipped and would be a great place to stay at any time of year. The owner's artistic eye is very much in evidence, both inside and outside - beautiful objects, and well-considered use of local materials in the building. The pool area is lovely - brilliant place to spend time after a taxing day at the beach.

Beautiful, spacious, quiet retreat

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this beautiful property, there was plenty of room for our party, which was made up of 2 families, a granny and an extra friend. We were particularly stunned by the modernist architecture and craft based decor, quite unique to the owners, both beautiful and utterly appropriate for the landscape and climate.

The pool was really nice for morning and evening swimming, we travelled to beaches during the day, there was a good selection nearby on the incredible atlantic coast.

Ian gave us lots of information about the local area, which was very useful, we ate a lot of local produce and the young people cooked bbqs on the in built equipment at the villa.

Great holiday- I'm sure we'll be back.

Très agréable maison

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans cette maison confortable. La maison surplombe la vallée, les différentes terrasses offrent de très jolis points de vues. La région est calme et sauvage, c'est parfait pour se reposer. Nous avons séjourné à deux familles, l'eau de la piscine était excellente. Les plages de la côté sont juste splendides. On reviendra avec plaisir. Merci à Britta pour l'accueil et à Ian pour ses indications et sa gentillesse.

Très belle maison!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour. La maison a beaucoup de charme, la piscine a ravi les enfants (12 et 6 ans) et le village est lové dans une très belle région que nous avons eu plaisir à découvrir grâce aux indications des propriétaires. Je recommande cette maison aux amoureux de la nature qui recherchent l'authentique.

The house is in a totally private location but near a village. The summer climate is hot, but the elevated position, with splendid views, brings cooling breezes and at night no air-conditioning or mosquito protection is necessary. The peaceful surroundings will allow you to relax or venture into the completely unspoilt and authentic rural area of pine, eucalyptus and cork oak forests. Sheep, goats, pigs and other animals are around as this is an area of simple rural economy with picturesque ruins of wind mills and houses as well as the prettily painted 'low houses' of the Alentejo. Access by car is good with a short private track leading to the house and shaded parking. You can go from the house either up the hill to the back or down the fields to the village with many wonderful local walks through unspoilt countryside or a pleasant drive to the Atlantic coast which is an untouched nature reserve.
