Uma casa tranquila

Fomos à procura de tranquilidade e foi o que encontrámos. Apesar de se situar em Terrugem parece que estamos no meio do campo! Uma casa em que nada falta, muito bem equipada e tudo de qualidade! Recomenda-se ;)

Elegancia y tranquilidad

  • 5 of 5

Es un challet decorado con mucha elegancia y equipado con todas las comodidades.

Es el sitio ideal para llevar a los niños, pues tiene a su disposición juguetes, cuna y la silla de comer.

El jardín es estupendo, la piscina permite refrescarnos en los días calurosos de Alentejo, y también es muy agradable comer en la terraza de la casa.

El challet está situado en un pueblo muy tranquilo, con buena vecindad. Quien desee dar un paseo en bicicleta, podrá hacerlo en las bicicletas que están disponibles para los huéspedes.

Hemos pasado un fin de semana muy placentero en familia y pensamos volver a repetirlo muy pronto.
