For those wanting to exploit the full pleasure of this house the owners reveal a few little secrets of their experience.Our house was designed by arch.Alexandre Bastos a respected reformer regional architect fro the region,a specialist in milenar Taipa constrution and painter artist. Presented in a U shape around the patio the interior spaces converge togheter to allow you to enjoy the exterior surroundings,depending in the rhythm of the day and the direction of the sun.Assimilating the suggestions in the architecture so we found our way of life at the cottage.The morning sun calls for a slight tan on the large terrace sunbeds on the east while preparing breakfast on the balcony over the valley facing south.Depending on the time spent at the beach we arrive into the shade of the beautiful wisteria for lunch (unless that the intense sun advise the freshness inside the dining room). For the afternoon we prefer the central courtyard overlooking West for a Sunset reception drink while waiting for a plater of char-grilled finest cuts of meats or the freshest Ocean fish cooked on the great exterior built BBQ. Dinner in the courtyard in the warm summer evenings is an absolute must! All life revolves aroud this courtyard during day or night even if the autonomy of individuals and groups spread from the intimacy of the rooms to the coolness of the balcony.Swimming pool we didn't want - we prefer the many nearby wild beaches on the Alentejo coast where you can indulge yourself in the most beautiful,peaceful and clean beaches of the Atlantic Ocean,where the Sea still smells of Sea...

Great place hidden gem
This was a very short notice booking and Pedro was very fast with his communication.
The pictures don't do this property justice , its very clean and homely and everything you need for a fantastic holiday.
We were met by his lovely father who showed us the way to the house and gave us a little tour of the village.
It is out in the countryside so if like peace and quiet and to be woken by birdsong and spend your nights watching the stars this is for you.
We hope to be back soon Pedro.
Ferias serenas no aconchego da Casa Pastor
Uma vez mais pudemos usufruir da serenidade e tranquilidade que o Litoral Alentejano nos proporciona, mas isso não teria sido possível, senão tivessemos igualmente usufruido do aconchego e simpatia dos proprietários da Casa Pastor, que em tudo se identifica com os seus donos. Um espaço extremamente agradavel e com todas as comodidades exigidas a uma ferias tranquilas em familia. É sempre um prazer voltar a Vale d'El Rey
Great view and fabulouse landscape where you can see the most beautiful sunset. Perfect for a family with kids for relaxing vacations combining beach and the country. Cosy house and very kind hostess. Totally recomend! Hope to return soon.
Ideal romantic holliday!!!
The reception on arrival was just perfect!
Me and my girlfriend spend e few nights on this amazing location, lovely surroundings, very comfortable and cozy space
The wonderful beaches are a few minutes away, perfect for walking and cycling...
Will surely come back. Highly recommended!!
This was a lovely and very clean house, complete with literally everything you need for a really comfortable stay. There's a lovely patio where you can have breakfast or lie down in the hammock... The stunning coast is a 30-min drive away. Pedro, our host, was really helpful and answered all our queries. Highly recommend.
Deliciosas vacaciones en la Costa Alentejana
Pasamos tres semanas de clima inmejorable y tranquilidad en las preciosas playas de la zona, de aguas limpias y frías, alternando paseos por los caminos cercanos a la casa, disfrutando la naturaleza y la gastronomía y aprendiendo sobre la cultura del lugar.
La casa es amplia y acogedora, mucho mejor que lo que se ve en las fotos, bien equipada y perfectamente limpia y arreglada. Los dueños fueron siempre amables y atentos con nosotros, especialmente con los niños, proveyendo todo lo que pedimos diligentemente.
Absolutamente recomendable, especialmente para aquellos que quieran recordar el sabor de las vacaciones de la infancia, cálidas, de azul y dorado, en las que el tiempo se hacía lento y era fácil hacer amigos.

We are seven kilometres from the World renown Sudoeste Musical Festival of Zambujeira do Mar (First week of August) and thirty minutes away of Sines with its competition 'Tasquinhas' (amazing local gastronomy fair - July 4th to 12th), soon followed by the another stuning Festival of World Music Sines (July 17th to 26th).
But even nearer you can find the Festival Porto Covo in August (August 28th to 30th). Then on our parish São Teotónio, we have the largest fair market - FACECO (June 22nd to 24th).
Also for a taste of the local culture in all the neighbour villages of the County Odemira festivities take place in almost a daily basis with music, local folk and typical Alentejo dancing and singing.
For a change, you are able to rest for an afternoon in the splendid Barragem Santa Clara (twenty kilometres away) or take a leap into Sagres and Lagos, passing by the wonderful locations of Odeceixe and Aljezur.
For last but not the least don't hesitate by experiencing some of the best seafood in the Planet anywhere across the Cost line - Costa Vicentina witch runs from the historic city Sines to the beloved Towns of Vila do Bispo and Sagres. And the more is left to one's creativity...
