This place is truly wonderful, perfectly relaxing and exceeded all our expectations. The photos don't do it real justice. The villa is huge yet still has a beautiful family home feel. The interior is traditional in style throughout and all the better for it with some lovely little touches including the welcome goodies which were perfect. The kitchen is particularly well equipped.
Outside it just gets better - the pool is massive, there is a brilliant barbecue and the grounds are beautifully maintained.
As for the environment - we were left speechless. 360 degree views and so peaceful.It looked like the African savannah - just missing a giraffe or 2. There is plenty of wildlife though, with Eagles, Storks, Lizards and snakes all seen over our 8 day stay.
The night sky is something else and hard to put into words.
The owners couldn't have been more helpful and Paula's advice on what to do and where to go made it feel really personal.
The villa is situated on the edge of a small hamlet, up a track and some 30 minutes from the nearest town, but if you want a relaxing holiday in a perfect home in a perfect location I'd recommend you try this villa.
This beautiful villa is set in the most stunning environment. 360 degree views look out across the plains and small hamlets of Alentejo with the beautiful walled village of Monsaraz perched on a hill some 10k away. It almost has a feel of African savannah about it, except there are no lions or giraffes!!
The photos on the website don't do this villa justice and Paula the wonderful owner couldn't have been more helpful throughout our stay with recommendations on where to go and what to do.
The traditionally furnished villa was far bigger than we could have imagined and can easily sleep 6 with loads of space inside and out. It's full of character and whilst not modern the bathrooms and kitchen have everything you could ever need. The outside space is even better - the grounds are beautifully maintained and the large private pool is perfect to cool down.
The area is remote with only a small hamlet with a tiny bar and basic grocery store within walking distance. For us that was part of its beauty. The local small town of Roguengos was around 25mins away in the car but on these roads that was a pleasure not a chore.
Likewise if you like wildlife you'll not be disappointed with regular viewings of Eagles, Kites, Stocks and bee-eaters etc not to mention the resident swallows. We also saw numerous lizards and snakes. The night sky was stunning every night with a full view of the Milky Way - completely amazing. Other highlights for us included visits to Monsaraz (walled village with castle - not say anything else, just go and experience it for yourself) and a local vineyard - Esparoa, which we visited twice. Highly recommend the restaurant if you like fine dining.
I'd recommend this villa to friends and family and wouldn't hesitate recommending it to anyone else who truly wants a relaxing, 'get away from it all' location. Perfect !!!
We enjoyed your house so much!
What a landscape from the house! The swimming pool is amazing.
We travel a lot and truly, havent seen a place like this in ages! The region is just breathtaking, it was so relaxing! We wanted to get to know more about the region but we also wouldn´t leave the house because we felt so good in it! Thanks for the wonderful wine!

What a vacations we had, not to mention the pool and the wonderful wine we tasted!
Our Thanks to Joao and Paula
Best vacations I've had!! The place was beautiful. I had no idea that Portugal had such landscapes. It was my first time in Alentejo and I absolutely loved it. The house is huge!! with a great night view to the Castle. The people welcomed us as family and everything was beyond our expectations. You can't really tell how good it is through the pictures. Everything was extremely well taken care of, the whole property was absolutely clean and well disposed. We had three great days of pool, with an absolute peace. The best thing was that it is in the middle of "nowhere", giving you a chance to really have some quiet days off, of total relaxations. It was only a shame we stayed just a few days, for I really wanted to go around and get to know the vineyards and the historical sites.
Thank you so much for all your trouble for the great welcome presentation! The snack on the table was just perfect after the trip and you guys were so nice! I can't wait for some time to go back! Thank you once more for making us feel at home and like family. (Now I want to go live in that house!)
Big hug from Laurel and Jonathan.
We experienced such an amazing days. The landscape was absolutely breathtaking, g-o-r-g-e-o-us!!!! OMG! We appreciated how nice and quiet the place is, we could listen to the birds singing every morning! You can see that the owners put so much love an care on their property, as they do in their guests (table was set when we got there, excelent meal and lovely wine!), they do play attention to every single detail, they are very friendly , the whole "package" made those days a delicious experience!!! HAVE TO COME BACK!!!
The pool is huge, just sat there every afternoon admiring the sunset and the castel silhouette at the skyline ! The barbecue area, the propertie´s privacy, the food, the food market, the castles we visited nearby, the imponent castle like walls of the property make this property an very likely unique place!
We felt like living there! Thanks once again.
