Simply Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderfully warm welcome from Josè.

We loved the property and the house. It was safe, clean, spacious and fully equipped with everything needed for cooking etc.

The sunset is absolutely breathtaking. The location is a stargazer's dream - the milky way is clearly visible and the sky is jam-packed with stars!

The pool was wonderfully clean and refreshing - a blessing in the heat of the Portuguese summer and the BBQ was great for cooking late into the evening!

There's lots to do around the area (provided you have a car) and we would have loved to stay longer to see the things we didn't have time to see. The locals are amazingly friendly and they were quite entertained at our attempts at speaking Portuguese.

We'd have no hesitation in recommending this property and we'd love to go back again.

Thank you so much for your warm hospitality, Josè! Can't wait to come back!

A hospitalidade do Sr. José, a casa de sonho no Redondo, Évora, Monsaraz, enfim, a melhor casa em que alguma vez passámos férias.

dépaysement garanti

  • 4 of 5

Belle maison et magnifique vue dégagée sur la plaine et le fantastique coucher du soleil. La maison est très plaisante, bien organisée et propre, mais il y fait très chaud pas de clim ni de ventilateur dans cette région ou les nuits sont souvent très chaudes. Séjour agréable, malgré les coqs, les chèvres, et les pigeons qui s'animent dès l'aube, dormeurs légers s'abstenir ! Literie à revoir mais c'est souvent un problème au Portugal. Les propriétaires sont très gentils et réactifs à nos soucis comme la piscine difficile à stabiliser avec la chaleur. Région fantastique, 15 jours sont à peine suffisant pour la découvrir. Bonnes assiettes et bons vins partout !

Owner's Response: Merci pour votre commentaire. En fait, la région est très chaud et les jours que vous restez avec nous étaient les plus chaudes de l'année. Habituellement, les plafonds voûtés garder la maison fraîche, aussi longtemps qu'ils restent des portes fermées. Quoi qu'il en soit, nous allons tenir compte de vos commentaires. En ce qui concerne la piscine, nous avons réalisé, je crois que je peux être encore là, l'échange de la pompe, de sorte que l'eau est revenu à des conditions normales. Depuis lors, pas à nouveau répéter le problème. Nous espérons revenir pour vous. Ce fut un plaisir. Merci. Goncalo

Genieten in een prachtige omgeving

  • 4 of 5

Het huis is heel comfortabel om te logeren met 6 personen. Alles is voldoende aanwezig. Het zwembad is zalig en het uitzicht vanop het terras is puur genieten met een prachtige zonsondergang...

Idílico

  • 5 of 5

O local perfeito para todos os momentos.

Adorámos cada momento, desde a calorosa recepção, à casa, aos longos dias, à localização, perto da vila do Redondo, e à vista arrebatadora. Tudo isto permitiu-nos momentos de diversão, de descanso, de convívio, com família e amigos.

A propriedade é totalmente vedada, o que nos garante muita tranquilidade e privacidade.

O pôr do sol é espantosamente maravilhoso.

A noite é mágica e o céu estrelado é único, o que nos permite prolongar a diversão do dia para a noite, sempre no exterior.

A despedida, mesmo com a natural tristeza de fim de férias, é tão ou mais calorosa que a recepção, motivando-nos ainda mais a regressar.

Por tudo, recomendamos e voltaremos claro.
