About Francine Brousseau
I am Canadian and I live in Portugal for several months each year. Semi-retired museologist and business executive, I now do translation and writing. My partner has a farm - a monte |- in Alentejo and we share our time between the farm and the coastal house. My children and grand children also enjoy the house and we all love Alentejo: natural parks, forests, hills, villages and for sure the sea and the seashore.
Francine Brousseau purchased this House in 2008
Why Francine Brousseau chose Municipality of Odemira
My house is situated in a traditional Alentejo village, only two kilometres from the ocean, with easy access to the most beautiful beaches of the Altantic Coast. I choose this location because the house is on a plaza, in front of an heritage windmill. The view is open to the fields and the dunes. Behind the house is a view of the mountains toward the interior of the country. The house is decorated with original artworks of a painter who once lived there. Village people are sympathetic and if one wish to rest, one can find everything in the village without driving anywhere: cafes, small grocery stores, excellent restaurants, etc. For more action, in less than 15 minutes, you are in Vila Nova de Milfontes, a summer resort town featuring, boutiques, restaurants, night life and also many beautiful beaches, or Odemira, a white small city in the hills. From the house, you can access the Rota Vicentina within minutes, a walking trail of several hundreds of kilometres along the sea. Weather is great: warm and comfortable, never too hot thanks to the wind from the sea. NIghts are cooler and comfortable. In short, this is our little paradise!
What makes this House unique
Rota Vicentina A haven of peace in a beautiful region. A nice house, well decorated and comfortable. The beautiful beaches with services or deserted. The beautiful all white villages! The good food and the good wine! Sympathetic people! Local crafts! The zest for life of the holidays ….and more!

Charming, comfortable and ideally situated, suited our purpose in every way
We very much enjoyed the area, especially Almagrave beach and Villa Nova and the weather was perfect.
Une maison dotée de tout ce qui est nécessaire à un bon séjour. Située dans le coeur d'un petit village tranquille, très bien pour se reposer.
Preciosa casa, muy buenas playas
Una casa bonita y nueva, todo tal cual se ve en las fotos. Tiene dos patios, uno de ellos con barbacoa. La cocina muy bien equipada
La casa está en Longueira, un pequeño pueblo a 5 km de la playa de Almograve. El pueblo tiene 2 restaurantes y dos cafeterias y un par de tiendas, es necesario coche para visitar las playas de los alrededores.
Recomiendo esta casa, fenomenal
Many thanks for you rvery nice comments. It is very inviting for future visitors. I just want to precise a point : the beach is 2 kilometres away, at which point you reach the dunes.
I hope to have the pleasure to host you again in our beautiful Alentejo!
Sehr schönes, mit Liebe (und zahlreichen Gemälden) eingerichtetes, viel Platz bietendes Haus! Ca. 3 Kilometer entfernt vom Traumstrand in Almograve (man braucht also ein Auto!). Die Inhaberin wohnt gelegentlich selbt in dem Haus . das macht sich positiv bemerkbar!
I am very happy that you enjoyed the house and the artworks and our beautiful beach in Almograve. I enjoy sharing my house, where I effectively live for a part of the year, with people who can in turn appreciate the village and Alentejo!
Great time in Longueira
The house was perfect for us: clean, spacious and very well equiped, especially the kitchen. We felt at home immediately. There is a folder in the house with information about the house, shopping and restaurants in the village. It was great to have breakfast in the garden. The area is beautiful and the beach a short drive away. We hope we can come back sometime.
Many thanks for your comments. I am very happy that you had a nice stay and that you enjoyed the house and our beautiful Alentejo. You are more than welcome to come back!
gezellig, maximum voor voor 4 personen
Huis eenvoudig maar proper ingericht. Veel keukengerief, volledige keuken met vaatwas en wasmachine. We hadden wel geen koffiezet of thermos of filter om zelf koffie te maken. Behelpen dus. Boven 1 ruime en 1 kleine slaapkamer. Badkamer beneden klein, boven iets ruimer. Geen ligzetels. De eerste dag geen gas, dus geen warm water. Werd verholpen door de immo tegen de volgende dag. Gehuchtje zelf is minimaal van voorzieningen. Dorpje verder is alles te krijgen.
About two hours from Lisbon; easy access via highway and national roads; 10 k from Vila Nova de Milfontes. 15 kilometres from Odemira.
A well kept secret. Alentejo is a unique region of South-West Portugal. Enjoy plains, mountains, hills, rivers and, not the least, the sea and its many beaches and cliffs. This immense diversity is the main attraction of this unique region.
The coast offers beautiful sandy beaches embedded in the cliffs. The best preserved coastline in Europe, the Costa Vicentina, roman ruins, prehistoric sites, moor architecture and beautiful white villages are some of the points of interest. Alentejo also means very welcoming people in a non touristic area.
Longueira is located within the Nature Park of Southwest Alentejo and Costa Vicentina.
Several access to the Rota Vicentina : a 340 km walking trail with two routes : the fishermen trail by the sea and the historical road.
Almograve/Longueira offers kilometres of sandy beaches, many secluded. The village has coffe shops, restaurants, grocery stores, bars.
