About Phillip Mollet

The area is ideal for sightseeing in a scenic and historic part of Portugal, within easy reach by motorway of Lisbon (2 hours) and Spain (1 hour). If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!

Beautiful spot, great for kids
We are a family of five and really enjoyed our stay here. The kids loved hiking around the property, swimming in the pool and checking out the surrounding towns. The host had great food recommendations at nearby towns!
A wonderful part of the country that we would absolutely visit again.
A relaxing stay in a beautiful place
My wife and I had a lovely week staying at Til’s Cottage. It is very well appointed, with excellent facilities, WiFi, privacy and comfort. The kitchen is compact but well equipped. And we cooked there most nights
The estate is beautiful and the tour of the cork forest from José was fascinating and is well worth doing. Walking in the forest, accompanied by the dogs, was a treat. I saw many bird species and I imagine that in spring this would be even more impressive.
The pool was beautiful and felt private, even with other guests in the main house, and had plenty of loungers and sunshades.
Communication was excellent and the owner, Phillip, even called me to let me know that he wouldn’t be able to meet us in person, which was very courteous. The staff were all very friendly and it was a pleasure to talk to them.
Overall, this was a fantastic place to stay and I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family, and would love to return.
Beautiful cottage within a stunningly beautiful location
The cottage was so warm and well appointed. It was a delight to be here. The pool was beautiful and watching the sunset from it was an amazing experience.
Lovely Shepard’s Cottage in a Beautiful Setting
Warm and informative welcome by the owners. Wish we could have stayed longer. So much to offer. Very comfortable. Highly recommend.
Delicious pool, amazing view
What a delightful place to spend a few hot days of summer. What could be more relaxing than sipping wine from the vineyard while toasting the view at sunset from the patio? Thanks to José and Jasmina for the warm welcome and for making us feel at home.
Great spot to enjoy the countryside
My girlfriend and I stayed here in mid-June for 3 nights. We loved the privacy and convenience offered at this cottage. When we were there the weather was baking hot (36 to 38C daily highs) and after wandering around visiting the sites in the area during the day, we welcomed the coolness of the cottage. The thick walls retained coolness in the cottage even in the extreme heat. The cottage is part of a functioning farm, that appeared to produce olives, cork, wine, and goats. The owner, Phillip, sold us a bottle of the wine they make at the farm and I thought it was excellent (bought 4 more bottles to take home). The cottage has everything in it you need. We ate breakfast in the cottage every morning, buying groceries at the supermarket in Redondo. We really enjoyed the quiet evenings out on the cottage patio. Without a doubt, this was my favourite spot out of the 5 places we stayed at during our vacation in Portugal. Very memorable!
