Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional place. If you want a peacefill holiday, this is the place to go! Bedrooms are spacious each with there own bathroom. Fully equiped kitchen (although we didn't cook). Flat screen TV (didn't watch tv either). The pool is nothing short of spectacular, with a table off to one side it lends itself to drinking a nice bottle of rosé;). Our host, Meike, is exceptionally friendly.

The property delivers what it promises, without a doubt. Very well maintained and very friendly personel.

Would certainly recommend this to friends or family.

A car is needed however, Cercal is a 2 min drive away and offers small coffee shops. Porto Covo and Vill Nova de Mil Fontes are about 20 mins away by car, and offer amazing restaurantes and wonderfull views:).

I would suggest the beach at Ilha do Pessegeiro for those wanting a little beach time.

Conclusion:

-Wonderfull house with pool, perfect for relaxing or a romantic getaway.

-A car is a must if you want some beach time

-Bars and Nightlife in Villa Nova de Mil Fontes and Sines.

-Small supermarket nearby +-2 min drive

All in all a must for those looking for a little peace and quiet.

Quinta rural, rustica, bem tranquila

  • 4 of 5

Instalações de acordo com descrição. Bom espaços exteriores.

Uma nota muito positiva para a proprietária: por motivos de saúde de familiares tive que interromper as férias e foi nos feita uma atenção importante no preço da estadia.

Sugestões: falta ar condicionado no quarto.

Incluir um cabaz de pequeno almoço.

Ideal para umas férias tranquilas campo não muito longe da costa

Estadia fenomenal!

  • 5 of 5

Todo o grupo (10 pessoas) adorou a estadia no Monte D'Avó!

Foi uma semana muito bem passada, numa casa muito gira, decorada com muito bom gosto e todas as facilidades que se pretendem, para uma casa de férias!

O espaço exterior é excelente e convidativo para um dia bem passado na piscina, ou para um fim de tarde, depois da praia! O sítio do monte é calmo e tranquilo, num ambiente campestre, e muito apelativo para um passeio a cavalo, ou mesmo aulas de equitação, com a Meike (a proprietária)!

O espaço da churrasqueira é muito bom!

A Meike, foi super atenciosa connosco, muito simpática e prestável, e deixou-nos totalmente avontade para aproveitarmos a casa, como se fosse nossa!

Vamos certamente repetir a estadia, este ano!

Obrigado Meike!

Idéal pour des vacances en famille

  • 5 of 5

Nous restés 3 semaines dans cette maison. C'est vraiment superbe pour des vacances avec la famille ! Magnifique endroit dans la campagne de l'Alentejo au calme, la maison est superbe grande et bien équipée, l'immense cuisine extérieure avec grand barbecue très pratique et les terrasses donnant sur la grande piscine ne donne pas envie de bouger de la maison. Toutes les commodités (village, commerces..) sont très proches et la plage est 10 km. Sans oublié le haras, nos enfants ont pu faire du cheval et Meike, la propriétaire qui est très sympa ! Idéal pour de belles vacances mémorables !

Monte d'Avô is situated just outside the centre of Cercal de Alentejo, where you'll find everything you need, supermarket, banks, postoffice, restaurants and coffeebars with lovely terraces, kiosk for your newspaper and or tabaco, pharmacy, playpark for children and various shops.

Nearby at about 10km the famous Porto Covo, with its lovely beaches and nice centre with seaview and lots of nice restaurants and terraces. Porto Covo got famous because of a song about it.

Also nearby the village Vila Nova de Milfontes with breathtaking views, and again lots of restaurants and shops.

A bit further you'll find the town Odemira, definitely worth a visit! Odemira lies at about 24km

At about 36km you'll find themepark Badoca Park, a great day out for the whole family! Visit wild life animals, such as giraffes, monkees, birds of prey etc and watch them as you drive by in either your own car or in a small train. Also funrides and shows. Definitely a must go there!

Sines is the harbour town, that's where you can buy the best fish and shellfish!

Grandola is a bit further away, at 68km, it has a very large supermarket Continente, and a trainstation with a direct and fast connection with the centre of Lisbon.

More to the interior of the country you will find Ourique, with historical buildings and a watch tower, still remaining from the city walls. Here you will also find a a very large supermarket. At 46km

Lagos is also a good days out. Visit the Algarve, wander around at the marine of Lagos. The towncentre of Lagos is wunderful restored, so many restaurants with lovely terraces that you won't know which one to pick! At about 65km from Cercal.
