A beautiful house with a fantastic view!
We had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful and comfortable house. The view on the river and towards Vila Nova de Milfontes was amazing. In the middle of nature we enjoyed all our meals on the nice terraces. The grandchildren played on the beautiful beaches, the parents and grandparents walked over the impressif cliffs and visited the charming village of Milfontes.
José Gabriel gave us a warm welcome and even coocked for us a Portuguese dinner. Our stay was fantastic!

What can I say, if I could give six stars I would! We had such a wonderful holiday here, it is so peaceful and the views are breathtaking. We felt like we were staying in a millionaires house! The house has everything you could possibly need and we enjoyed long breakfasts and dinners on the terrace. The area is very beautiful and we enjoyed the three nearby beaches and canoeing on the river. We’d love to come back with friends and family, this is just a totally fabulous house. Best holiday rental we’ve stayed in.
merci, I hope you will come again, just call me you have my phone number!
Relax on the Rio Mira
We had a relaxing week in this very nice house on the Rio Mira. The house is spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. There are large terraces providing sunshine and shade all day with fabulous views over the river and towards Vila Nova de Milfontes. We spent quite a lot of time on the terrace, contemplating life and the view over a coffee or glass of sangria! We were also treated to the most spectacular moon rises, clear views of the Milky Way, passing satellites and and innumerable stars in clear night skies.
The local town of Milfontes is a pleasant Portuguese (ie not overwhelmed by international tourism) seaside town. We liked it. There are plenty of good places to eat and the town beaches are very good. The river is clean. We kayaked with Nature Activities which was fun, easy and safe. Some of the beaches slightly along the coast are excellent, particularly Malhao just to the north of the town.
The house is an easy 2hr drive from Lisbon airport. The owner was very helpful by email before arrival. A list of suggestions for local beaches, restaurants and sight seeing is provided, in French but nothing that an O-level and Google translate can't cope with! He is also the only owner in my experience of villa rental who took the trouble to phone half way through the week to check we were having a good time.
It is very easy to have a wonderful holiday here.
thanks, it was my pleasure! hope see you again, bien à vous JF Molle
My stay has been great. The house has lovely views, is quiet and has everything. The surroundings are unbeatable, the dream beaches and cliffs are a surprise at low tide. We have also eaten very well thanks to the recommendations of Jean-François. I highly recommend it.
Madame Quesada, bonjour,
thanks a lot for your appreciation, it seems you had a good stay.
One question: in the Homelidays,4 stars instead of 5 means somethings went wrong...thanks for telling me more about this and anyways I will be happy to welcome you again!
bonne journée JF Molle
We absolutely adored this house. There is no reason to eat indoors when such gorgeous porches surround the house. The weather was perfect and we took full advantage of dining and lounging outside. Milfontes is a darling town, quiet, charming and friendly.
Jean Francois was responsive and helpful and any small issues we had were resolved right away. The house description was accurate and the house itself was better than expected. We felt safe and peaceful in our home away from home. Many, many thanks!!!
Merci!!! et à bientôt (just to train your french!)
An exceptional stay at the Monte de Candeias
We were overwhelmed by the magnificent 180° degree view from the terrace. This is a very special house where you will feel immediately at home. It has all the charms of stylish Portuguese interior design, is extremely comfortable and soothingly quiet. You will also benefit from a very detailed description of the surroundings from the owner Jean-Francois Molle who, understandably, fell in love as you also will with the stunning Alentejan coast.

Then Cercal towards Vila nova Mifontes. 3 Kms before milfontes at a roundabout surrounded by a gas station, take the direction Sao Luis.
