Car: Necessary

Although this Alentejo rental cottage is in a very private and secluded location, you will not feel isolated. The holiday home has easy access and is only a short drive to the town of Portalegre for dining and shopping. The medieval fortress town of Marvao is 8 miles away as is the charming town of Castelo de Vide. Caceres in Spain is under an hour's drive. There is plenty to do and see around the house and Montinho will be the perfect base to explore the countryside of Portugal and Spain.
