Piece of heaven...
Excellent accommodations, quiet, rural and comfortable. We had dinner made at the property for 2 nights which was lovely and delicious. Ana was an excellent hostess and took very good care of us.
Thank you Antonio. Was really a pleasure to meet you all, Hope you can come back soon. Best, Mario & Paula
Hidden gem outside of Evora
Rented this property with 3 other couples (total of 8 people). Having an entire “estate” to ourselves was amazing. Whether we were drinking wine or eating an amazing breakfast prepared by Ana in the social house, or waking up to the sounds of birds in the morning, or just lounging in the pool area, this wonderful getaway was an incredible place to spend time with friends. Mario was a pleasure to deal with and was very helpful with recommendations. Would definitely recommend this place for a family or group of friends who would appreciate an immaculate property with plenty of privacy and surrounded by nature.
Thank you Neale, truly glad that you enjoyed your stay and the atmosphere around. Was a pleasure to meet you all, hope you can come back soon. All the best, Mario
A little piece of paradise
Try this....on your first morning, if you can be bothered, get up early, make yourself a coffee, sit at the table out the back and just listen. I’m not going to tell you what you’ll hear, but trust me, it’s a worth while experience!
indeed, just do it. extraordinary people, thank you Mel. please come back someday. meanwhile, take care and look after, Mario & Paula
Simply idyllic, whether sipping a glass of wine and gazing at the stars, eating a beautifully prepared meal by Anna in the guesthouse or just cooling off by the pool. The hosts and staff are great. Good location for exploring Alentejo. Would definitely recommend it. There is a nice grocery 15 minutes away in Arraiolos- Intermarche.
Thank you Tara & Jorge. Truly glad that you enjoyed your stay, for us it was a pleasure to host such a nice and cool family as yours! All the best, Mario & Paula
A wonderful retreat away from it all.
Casas Caiadas is set in a beautiful remote location in the heart of the rural Portuguese farming community where agriculture meets wilderness. Casas Caiadas is stunning in its simplicity, retaining the structure of the century’s old water mill, finished in smooth white painted walls featuring natural stone nooks and crannies. Internally old rustic furniture contrasting with contemporary mod cons made for a relaxing ambience. The beach style infinity pool is of a real state of the art design great for both paddlers and swimmers alike.
We really appreciated having breakfast made for us each morning with an amazing choice of food to keep you going all day. Whilst we were enjoying our breakfast our beds were being made and bathroom facilities cleaned.
Each morning before breakfast and before the sun got too hot, those of us, who managed to get up, went for walks or jogs out along the isolated lanes that meander through the ancient olive groves. It was so nice just to hear the sounds of the wildlife and see unspoilt countryside all around.
We had a traditional Portuguese fish dish cooked for us in the villa on our first night which was of the highest standard. It was our preference to eat in on subsequent evenings taking in turns to cook in the well equipped kitchen. The nearest fully stocked supermarket is some distance away but visits can be combined with day trips to places of interest; we especially recommend a visit to the walled village of Monsaraz. Compared to the UK we found the local roads almost deserted and parking easy and free.
The stars are quite spectacular after dark as you look up from this rural setting. It can make you ponder your existence on planet earth as you spot another shooting star across the night sky.
For my wife the highlight of our stay was laying pool side in this peaceful and enchanting environment. For me it was exploring the olive grove wilderness walking alone or on mountain bikes with my son. My daughter enjoyed the opportunity to do some undisturbed research reading in the cool inspiring space that was the old water mill.
All in all it was a lovely & memorable family holiday made the more so by the attention to detail and consideration of the owner Mario Domingues.
It was so gratifying to welcome Peter and his Family, having the chance to provide them such a "lovely & memorable family holiday" at Casas Caiadas. Thank you all for your care and attention, your detailed review and truly interest in the history of the place. We really look forward to meet you all again. All the best, Mário & Paula
Special days in June
This is really the perfect title to describe our stay at Casas Caiadas. In the middle of a distinctive landscape in Alentejo, three small traditional houses emerge where you least expect. The scent of the land, the silence of the location, the birds in the morning, the perfect light of the sunrise, are incomparable. In the inside, you feel cozy, the design and the modern decor leave nothing unintended. It is the perfect place to read a book, have a simple family gathering or just escape from the everyday life. The property is spot-on in every detail. Claudia is an amazing chef and an helpful hand when you need. Paula and Mário, the owners, are two big hearts, perfect to welcome and guide you in your stay. Hopefully we will be able to come back soon.
Felix and Joana are just adorable! Thanks a lot for your detailed review. Hope u can come back soon. All the best, Mario & Paula
