So peaceful and relaxing
This was our second visit and once again we left with special memories.
Will return next year.
Set in a lovely rural area, green for Portugal at this time of year (end July) with lots of thought from the owners in making life comfortable particularly round the pool area. For me the salt water pool was a big plus as I'm not a fan of chemically treated ones. The small town of São Luis is close by with a good butcher and fish market.
We just returned home after a fantastic 2 week holiday at Talgre. I cannot say enough about the property. The house is well appointed with everything you could need for home and the beach. The pool was our favorite and we spent long lazy hours floating in the warm water or enjoying time under the canopy in the shade. We also loved the new grill and enjoyed many meals outdoors on the lovely veranda. Thank you for Wolfram and Suzanne for allowing us to have such a memorable holiday at Talgre.
lovely, peaceful villa. We had a very relaxing holiday and hope to return
Tranquil setting and very comfortable villa. Garden colourful with pretty views. On the edge of a wood with an abundance of walks.
Talegre is everything you could want in a holiday home. Beautifully maintained, very well equipped, cosy and warm with lovely gardens and a stunning pool. This was so enticing that we even braved the cool clear waters in March!
Talegre is surrounded by lovely walks through cork groves and meadows and is of course near to some fabulous beaches. We enjoyed exploring in such a great place.
Britta and Paul were so friendly and helpful and made us feel most welcome.
We have already booked to return to Talegre in the Autumn.
So thank you Wolfram and Susanne for sharing your wonderful home.

Perfect for a peaceful holiday
Talegre and the area gave us everything we wanted for our 2 week holiday. The house is indeed secluded, with the peace and quiet only interrupted by the very occasional tractor and the local dog choir. We spent most of the time outside; the pool area is fantastic and the salt water just about warm enough for early October dips. The inside of the house was spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you'd need. Dealings with Wolfram went very smoothly and Britta, who looks after the house locally, was very helpful. The area is completely unspoilt - about 25 minutes to Milfontes along virtually deserted roads, with lots of good restaurants and beaches. Highly recommended!
Situated in a quiet location off the beaten track (quite literally its 600m down a dirt track!) the property offers an ideal environment for a peaceful, relaxing holiday. This is a part of Portugal which is almost untouched by tourism. Shepherds still roam the hillsides with their flocks and cork from the cork oaks is collected in the traditional way.
Although this is a rural location there are some superb unspoilt beaches within 20 to 30 minutes drive (some suitable for surfing & body boarding) . Vila de Nova Milfontes is 20 minutes by car.
Freshly baked bread, locally grown fruit and veg can be bought in the village of Sao Luis, 3 mins drive away. For a larger selection of shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants there are the small towns of Milfontes, Cercal & Odemira 15 mins drive away. Tennis and horse riding available in Sao Luis.
A car is essential to appreciate this unspoilt corner of Portugal. Beja 1hour, Lisbon 2hours, 45mins to nearest Algarve beaches, Faro airport 1.5hours
