Marta was quick to answer our questions before and after our stay and we communicated well as we set up our check-in time as we approached by private car. Her farm cottage is simple, clean and basically equipped, peacefully situated very close to Evora, and an excellent jumping off point to tour the area. Marta’s suggestions for things to do and places to eat were spot-on. She directed us to free parking just outside the town walls and Evora us easy and charming to walk around -a lovely contrast to Lisbon and Porto. The cottage is nestled into a rocky corner of a working cattle farm, which also has sheep, goats and an old donkey. A large private swimming pool a short walk up the hill provides welcome relief on hot days. We were two couples but multiple entries in the guest journal commented on what a great place it was for families with children. All round a very pleasant stay in the countryside just a short hop from Evora. We recommend it!
