Great home, kitchen, pool and environment
We stayed for three night and our goal was to relax, cook, enjoy the environment and go on walks with our dog,
The home environment was terrific with an excellent equipped kitchen and many zones outside and inside to relax. The design of the house is beautiful and warm. The environment is great for walks, bike ride - mountain or hybrid bikes -and trip to hill side walled towns. Estremoz, 6 km away has excellent food shopping
Vibrant, friendly village. Lovely house
Four of us and a dog have just spent a fortnight relaxing in this lovely house, full of charm. The pool was a good size and the water perfect ( the pool was maintained very discreetly- the man must have made visits about 6am!). The kitchen was extremely well-equipped, the TV worked well and had news channels in both Portuguese and English, the bathrooms were both lovely and the beds comfortable. My favourite spot was however under the vines, in one of the two hammocks, keeping cool on those hot, Alentejo afternoons. Every morning my friend and I went walking through the cork forests surrounding the pretty village of São Lourenço and would then stop for a coffee in the cafe just 200 metres or so from the house. We also ate here twice and the food was excellent. Much better than we would have imagined. The locals were friendly and helpful and the town of Estremoz only 5k away. I have no hesitations in recommending this holiday home. You will love it.
Wonderful, nicely decorated, quiet villa
We had a wonderful, relaxing week at the villa. Carlos the owner was very responsive to our emails, and Isilda and her husband were super helpful on site for the couple of things we needed at the beginning. The villa is tastefully decorated, with a well-equipped kitchen. There isn’t much to do in the immediate area, other than Evora (40 km away), which is definitely worth a visit, but the pool was nice and the weather was warm, so we were happy not to leave the villa much - that’s what we needed. The grape vines on the front porch pergola were in season, so fun to pick and eat. The neighbors were a bit closer than we were expecting, but the layout of the property makes it very private, and we didn’t hear anything but sheep baa-ing! Our only marginal complaint would be that we found the shower pressure and water temperature both a bit low. We would highly recommend this villa if you’re looking for a relaxing, quiet stay.
Beautiful and peaceful
This house is beautiful, it is impeccable. The greeting was lovely and we appreciated the cheese, the bread and the wine.
The location is perfect and it is easily accessible.
Our mails were always answered rapidly, the owners are always available.
We will definitely return someday.
Charming Home - Lovely Region - Delightful Stay
We truly enjoyed our visit at Monte Freixos. The home is located in a small town quite close to Estramoz. We had spent two weeks traveling in other parts of Portugal and coming to the Estramoz area was a wonderful way to relax and truly enjoy the Alentejo region at the end of our stay. The home was beautiful, nicely decorated, comfortable and, very well appointed. It has a private backyard which we used and enjoyed. We shopped at the local market (Estramoz) and cooked every evening. We found the kitchen, BBQ area and dining area to have everything we would need. Elsa and Carlos were terrific hosts. They welcomed us and were always available and offered all the instructions we needed to get acclimated when we arrived. They also gave us additional pointers to vineyards, restaurants and towns to find local pottery (Redondo) and other things. I would return and would definitely recommend Monte Freixos to our friends and family.
Lovely property in a friendly village.
We enjoyed a tranquil and relaxing 4 weeks at this property. It had everything we needed and was beautifully renovated. Elsa answered all our requests promptly and was very kind to help us organise horse riding lessons for our daughter (thank you). Estromez is a delightful town, very picturesque and with lots of great restaurants. Local wines are fabulous and great location for discovering the Alentejo. The local restaurant/café/bar/shop in the village (2 minutes walk from the house) is very good. Lots of supermarkets in Estromez (our favourite was Continente) and the Saturday morning market is essential. We loved this place!
Thank you for your kind words. Your were wonderful guests and we are very glad you enjoyed our stay. It will be a pleasure to see you again.
