We stayed at Monte Pedras Pardas a week in May and had the most amazing time. The property is beautiful, quiet and perfect to spend some

relaxing and inspiring time. The house is very spacious, comfy, perfectly clean and has everything you could ever need. It offers a big sitting/dining

area with a large table as well as areas to have some privacy. The pool area is perfect with deckchairs to relax and enjoy the view. We had bbqs

outside and enjoyed fresh vegetables from the garden nearby. The area also has a lot to offer: beautiful beaches, surfing, hiking on a wonderful coast,

eating... This made it so difficult to decide whether to spent the day in the wonderful house or explore the area :).

Thank you, Rodrigo, your family and the house keeper! This exceeded our expectations and we hope to come back. Sarah

Perfect holidays at a perfect property

  • 5 of 5

Dear Rodrigo,

we loved to stay at your beautiful area. We had two amazing weeks with the whole family, 13 guys from the age of 2 to 82. Thank you very much for the pefect service of you, your brother and espacially the houskeeper who offers us so many vegatables, fruits and eggs all fresh from the garden.

The nature round about the house is wonderful and we enjoy this quit place to relax at the pool with a big scenery until the atlantique. Had some nice barbecues and some surfing lessons at different fantastic beaches, Those who prefer fresh fish, there are a lot of good restaurants, The house keeps what the pictures are promissing at the homepage. The poperty is clean and well maintained.

This area in Portugal we love most because it is inside the national park without any hotel complexes. Natives are very friendly. Best wishes to your mom and thank you for the marmelade.

Friends are asking us and my whole family is recommending your property as a "best place" for comming together within a family or just friends and learn to know about portugal.

Keep your area like it is!

Best wishes

family Kolb

Authentic luxury

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this house together with friends and our two kids. We had a great time. Apart from the house which is very comfortable with room for both privacy and spending time together, we especially enjoyed the kitchen garden where we picked our own vegetables every day. The kids loved to visit the animals kept not far from the house and to collect fresh eggs. The pool area had a great view of the landscape and the atlantic sea. The pool had a modern cleaning system which involved no chlorine. Instead the water was slightly salty and felt incredibly fresh, almost like sea water.

The house was not right by the sea side, but the surrounding area was very charming and typical for the Alentejo area with small villages and plenty of cork trees. And the sea was only ten minutes away by car. During our week we found beautiful beaches and in one place they offered wave surfing courses. The most brave of us had to try and believe it or not, our ten year old was the master among us.

The most difficult place to leave

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but fantastic memories of this holiday!

With so much surrounding rural land (cared for by a lovely man who'll tell you about the area if you feel like testing your Portuguese), this was the perfect retreat from everything. Beautiful beaches and cute towns are near enough for good day trips, but much time can be spent happily by the infinity pool, playing table football or getting to know the goats and rabbits kept further down on the property.

The house itself is stunning, with very modern but cosy decor. The huge log fire (safely behind glass) was certainly a bonus for the cooler January evenings, while warmer evenings were well spent on the patio, watching the sunset from a great vantage point in the mountains.

A standard review doesn't do justice - of course it was clean and well maintained, and a holiday here can be as relaxing or exciting as you make it. It's the little things that make this place special, from the delicious breakfast cheeses provided to the occasional distant sounds from a donkey farm as you lie in the garden.

Proof enough is that we made a return visit in the summer, when the weather was glorious and we really made use of the pool and barbecue.

If I could go there now, I'd be on the plane already! Go and see what I mean.

Passei aqui 3 dias/ 2 noites no início de Junho com um grupo de amigos (8 adultos e 4 crianças dos 2 aos 7 anos). Por onde começar?!

A casa é completamente fiel à descrição apresentada. Aliás, a versão "ao vivo" é bem melhor! O espaço está muito bem pensado, bem decorado e em óptimo estado.

Está perfeitamente equipada com tudo o que possamos querer para passar 2 dias (ou 2 semanas): desde os electrodomésticos até às opções de entretenimento.

No entanto, para mim é o espaço exterior que faz a diferença. Desde o espaço relvado em frente à casa onde estivemos a jogar raquetas com os miúdos, os muitos espaços diferentes onde podemos estar sentados a ler um livro ou simplesmente a apanhar sol, passando pelo campo de futebol e pela zona do baloiço e do escorrega!!

A restante zona ajardinada também está muito bem conseguida com vários tipos de vegetação mais "natural" (parabéns pela opção de resistir a "esterilizar" o jardim e colocar relva em tudo).

A zona da piscina também é bastante agradável e a vista é extraordinária (tal como do resto da propriedade). A temperatura da água estava bem agradável , o que resultou em banhos nos 3 dias (incluindo na noite de sexta!!), apesar de não termos tido muita sorte com o tempo - esteve bastante vento durante o fim de semana o que baixou consideravelmente a sensação térmica (uma nota para o facto da piscina ter vedação a toda a volta, importante para quem tem miúdos).

Gostei também do facto de a propriedade ter ainda mais 5 hectares de montado que ainda deram para uma caminhada matinal com uma bela vista sobre o mar. Ahhh, e as cabras, as galinhas e o cão! Os miúdos adoraram!! Miúdos esses que nunca se mostraram aborrecidos: piscina, campo de futebol, baloiço, raquetas, passeio pelo montado, ver as galinhas e as cabras, Disney Júnior (!!), brincar às escondidas...não deu para aborrecer!

Resumindo: perfeito!

PS - a única coisa que mudaria seria muito provavelmente a titularidade da propriedade para o meu nome:):)
