Dear Katrien & Arthur
Yes, the place is rather remote, no one has hidden that from here. Nevertheless you refer Sines or bigger places also reacheable. Please be informed that ANY PLACE IN ALENTEJO MUST BE REACHED PREFERABLY BY PRIVATE CAR, that is clearly noted in the respective announcements.
You never said you did not had a car beforehand because we could surely have tried to arrange transport for you. To reach some main cities, such as Santiago do Cacém or Sines or Porto Côvo, there is the option of Rede de Expressos (coach service from Lisbon Sete Rios) with more than 300 destinations in Portugal however does not work during the night. Transport here, in all this area, does exist however on a very reduced timeline; for example not after 6 PM; sometimes there is transport arranged by the Municipality because there are events that last until early hours in the morning. That is something that I knew existed, namely for the Festival Musicas do Mundo in Sines (FMM), which was exactly where you wanted to go. This public reply is obviously to be noticed by future persons that might come here, so please make it clear. The village has some activity during the day and sometimes, especially in the summer, events in Parque Central which is at walking distance from the place where you stayed.
Dear Katrien: thanks anyway for your stay, you both are very sweet and that is important.
