Space 968 sq. ft.
Property type villa

About the property

Treat yourself and your loved ones to a relaxing stay in this idyllic spot.

Built in the traditional Alentejo style this cottage is everything one could want for a truly quiet and relaxing break away from the crowds to be at one with nature. But it still has all mod cons (except for a dishwasher), and a beautiful pool with amazing panoramic views. You won't find a more peaceful getaway than this, yet its only a ten minute walk to the nearest village and a ten minute drive to a well stocked supermarket. If you do feel the need for the beach, the unspoilt west coast beaches are less than an hours drive away.

Property in excellent location

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

The property, although not the one listed but a 3 bedroom cottage further down the hill from property 6885406, was everything we wanted. Martin the owner explained that due to unforeseen circumstances he'd had to switch the property we stayed in but made sure we were happy with everything and, although never imposing on our privacy, was nearby should we need anything.

Set in an excellent location with fantastic views all around, the cottage had all the facilities we could need including a private pool, en-suite bedrooms, spacious kitchen and comfortable living area, outside seating and BBQ.

The nearby town Ourique is a lovely place only a 10 minute drive away with a good supermarket, cafes, fuel etc.

Highly recommended.

Brilliant. Lovely, secluded villa with beautiful views. Well equipped with everything you're likely to need. Bit too cold for the pool in January, but do-able if you're brave enough. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to go back.

Wonderful stay in an idealic location

  • 5 of 5

Surrounded by the beautiful Alentejo countryside, this villa has truly magnificent views. We thoroughly enjoyed the peace and tranquillity. With a host of unspoilt beaches free of crowds just a short drive away, the villa provides a fantastic base to experience a less well known side of Portugal.

Sehr schönes Haus für 2-4 Personen mitten im Alentejo

  • 4 of 5

In diesem urigen, gut ausgestatteten Haus mit eigenem Pool haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Bis auf gelegentliches Pferde-Gewieher und Hunde-Gebell hat man hier seine totale Ruhe mit einem wunderbaren Blick über die Landschaft. Ein Auto ist unerlässlich fürs Einkaufen und Ausflüge.
