Places to stay in Portalegre
Casa rustica e recuperada, muito confortável situada numa aldeia (Reguengo) em pleno Parque Natural de Serra de São Mamede. Ideal para famílias, grupos de amigos ou para uma escapadinha em casal. Casa com jardim partilhado, com grelhador e piscina. Situa-se a 10 min de Portalegre. NOTA: O Reguengo é uma aldeia que não tem supermercados, nem mercearias, nem bombas de gasolina, nem restaurantes...tem apenas um cafe, uma caixa multibanco e uma piscina publica com bar que está aberta apenas no verão
A Casa Velha era uma antiga casa, anterior a 1950, com todas as características de uma casa tipicamente rústica e alentejana. Tipica casa alentejana, em que o estábulo e as manjedouras eram no resto-chão da casa, de forma a manterem quente o primeiro andar. Recuperamos a Casa Velha, tentando manter o máximo do original mas modernizá-mo-la, a favor da sua nova utilização e utilizadores. A casa é composta por resto-chao e por primeiro andar. No resto-chão localiza-se um pequeno hall de entrada e uma grande casa de banho. No primeiro andar encontra-se uma grande sala com lareira e com uma simples kitchenette. A kitchenette tem todos os utensílios necessários para cozinhar refeições simples. O acesso aos quartos faz-se a partir da zona de sala/kitchenette. A casa tem um quarto principal, bastante grande com uma cama de casal, e um quarto secundário composto por uma mezzanine, que por sua vez tem duas camas de casal em cada nível. A Casa não tem aquecimento central. No inverno os hospedes terão ao seu dispor mantas, sacos de agua quente, uma lareira (com um carrego de lenha de cortesia, acendalhas, pinhas e fósforos) e um aquecedor elétrico em cada quarto e casa de banho. A casa situa-se num terreno partilhado por outra casa, contudo a casa tem um telheiro próprio com barbecue para uso exclusivo dos hospedes. A zona da piscina situa-se na frente de ambas as casas, contudo será apenas usada pelos hóspedes da Casa Velha.
A localização é perfeita para quem queira conhecer e visitar a Serra de Sao Mamede. Acaba por nem estar situada em plena cidade de Portalegre nem perdida no meio do Parque Natural. A casa está a 10 minutos de Portalegre, a 10 minutos do ponto mais alto da Serra de Sao Mamede, a 15 minutos do Castelo de Alegrete, a 20 minutos das cascatas de Monte Sete, a 20 minutos da albufeira da barragem da Apartadura, 20 minutos da cidade romana de Ammaia, a 30 minutos de Marvão e de Castelo de Vide. O Reguengo é uma pequena aldeia que não tem supermercados, nem mercearias, nem bombas de gasolina, nem restaurantes... tem apenas um cafe, uma caixa multibanco e uma piscina publica com bar que está aberta apenas no verão.
  • The space is charming, full of details and very well decorated. It has everything you need for a very pleasant holiday. Catarina's hospitality is also fantastic. Any trip to Portalegre is where we stay.

  • We had booked this place as a peaceful getaway from a festival in Crato. And peaceful it was. Beds were comfy, the outdoor area was the place to be during the hot summer days and the pool was cold enough to cool down. Catarina was helpful and fast to react to our questions. 10/10 would recommend this place.

    Numa manhã de sombras no céu, na companhia de um bando de milhanos, flutuando sobre as nuvens, sobre as neblinas dos vales, entre os vultos da Estrela e São Mamede, de Marvão vai-se voando a sítios inimagináveis.
  • The house is in a beautiful place, well located to visit the most tourist villages in the area: Marvao, Castelo de Vide, Portalegre, ... Raquel has been attentive to our arrival at the house, giving us the necessary instructions so that everything was perfect 100% recommendable

    Susana2019-11-03T00:00:00Z

    Cees2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is a gorgeous and comfortable farmhouse close to Marvão. We had a really relaxing time here. We loved eating outside on the terrace. The house had everything we needed, and my boys were happy to find the box with cards, chess and dominos. We visited Marvão, Castelo de Vide, swam in the river and went for a walk through the valley at the bottom of the drive. If you are tall, all the beds are only double, but this place is very charming, I highly recommend.

    Libby2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Picturesque mountain house 5 minutes from the castle of Marvao we are well located and in a magnificent place for those seeking peace and quiet in nature.

    Luis2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • traditional house, very fresh despite end of August very hot! Great location to visit this fabulous region. The river pool in a natural river is 1 km away and can be reached on foot by a nice path that passes right in front of the house! Only downside the parking quite difficult to access. Otherwise we loved our stay with friends and enjoyed a lot of the relax offered by the shaded and friendly patio of this house! thank you Raquel.

    Ester2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • We consider this the best Airbnb experience we’ve had to date. First off, Racquel is a wonderful host, offering continuous tips and suggestions all of which we took and all of which were fantastic. Secondly, you can’t beat this location - just on the hill side of beautiful Marvao in a wonderful part of magical Portugal. Welcoming locals, very few tourists, super authentic vibe. Racquel’s is a quaint farmhouse, which for us was a big plus. For breakfast you can pick and eat grapes and figs right off the vine and trees. In the heat of the day you swim at the local swimming hole. In the evening go for a rail bike ride, and for dinner... follow Racquel’s suggestions!

    Amir2019-08-26T00:00:00Z

    Quinta Lua Branca, a magical estate in the Serra de São Mamede Natural Park. This quiet and inspiring place offers accommodation for retreats, groups and individual guests who love tranquility, nature, rest, luxury and comfort.
    CASA ESTRELAS Casa Estrelas is a cosy wooden guest house, sleeps up to 3 people. The little chalet is located in the shade on the edge of the forest. The house comprises a spacious bedroom for 2 people, a smaller single bedroom and a (small) bathroom. The covered porch offers views of the valley and the mountains of Spain. Bed linen and bath towels are provided.
    From the estate you can make lovely walks through the woods and fields. The ancient stone walls with marked trails lead through olive groves and vineyards, past cork oak and citrus trees, abandoned ruins, which determine the atmosphere of unspoiled times. It is more the exception than the rule to meet anyone.
  • Beautiful place. Stunning views and walks. Everything you could wish for a retreat. Warm and cosy. Close to town to. Would love to come back.

    Yvette2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • Truly a magical paradise! The Quinta has a wonderful location with a great view, surrounding by beautiful nature, a really quiet and peaceful place. The little wooden house was perfect for us as a family with two kids, and even more beautiful than in the pictures! We also loved the outdoor kitchen and the beautiful pool with the lounge area and actually spent a lot more time relaxing there than we had planned. The kids loved strolling around the property, picking fresh figs from the trees and resting in the hammock. Carla is a perfect host, always friendly and helpful and with lots of recommendations what to do and where to eat. She made an amazing breakfast for us with fresh fruit, cheese, homemade jam, regional cake, eggs and much more. She even made a delicious birthday cake for my husband. We didn’t miss a thing and had a perfect stay there. Thanks a lot Carla!!!

    Julia2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Short but very welcoming stay, Carla is a very genuine and friendly hostess made us feel at home. We traveled with our dog who loved the freedom of this space. The pool and the surrounding nature are very nice. Good retreat to rest, no TV, Wifi, good for quiet reading and relaxing !!!

    Helena2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Carla and Louis were lovely hosts. We were able to check in early and the property is stunning. It's the perfect place to relax and switch off. The pool side kitchen and lounges were lovely, set amongst the beautiful gardens and fruit trees. The breakfast was also outstanding. Carla provided fresh orange juice and coffee, eggs cooked to your liking, fresh bread and croissants with homemade jam, pasteis de nata, and a big place of fresh fruit. The local restaurant suggestions were very helpful. The food and wine we had in the Portalegre restaurants, especially A do Ferro and Tombalobos was amazing. Staying here was a dream and I highly recommend for anyone wanting a different experience in regional Portugal, outside of the main capital cities.

    Tiffany2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Carla and Louis were perfect host as they we here for us. We had a nice welcome to their home and was really surprised with the tranquility. The little house we had, had the comfort we needed. There were also a swimming pool and a kitchen shared with other people staying there. We have ordered the breakfast and it was enough for us as we didn’t need to eat until the evening. Also, we would like to thank them for their list of restaurants (we tried one and was so gooooood). They are both very kind, caring and attentive to their guest. We recommend this incredible place for anyone who would like to take a break and visit Portalegre !

    Emilie2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very good. We went with two children (one baby) and we were very comfortable. The common areas are great, both the pool and the eating area. Carla is very attentive to guests and the decoration she keeps in the house and spaces is fantastic. 100% recommended

    Nacho2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed just one night at Quinta lua branca but it was a highlight of our holiday, such hospitality and attention to detail. We made full use of the amazing outdoor kitchen and the wood fire, and made some amazing slow cooked food. Thank you guys for everything we are already planning our next visit ;)

    Ritam2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • There is so much to write about Carla, his husband and his Quinta, that I needed a book to do it. In summary, the woodhouse is fantastic, quiet, super, clean, cool deco and the situation is perfect, nobody near, zero noise and totally in the nature. The swimming pool is so good with all the equipments (umbrellas and more). The breakfast was excellent, so much things to eat! And for restaurant Portalegre is 5 minutes by car and you can find lot of good restaurants. Now about Carla and her husband, they were so kind, always looking for a perfect stay by their quinta. We spoke a lot about them and they were very good times! We were just sad to spend in this quinta. I recommend for everybody, families, couples ... There is so much to write about Carla, her husband and their quinta that you could write a book! In summary, the small wooden house is fantastic, clean, quiet, zero noise, very well decorated and surrounded by woods in nature. The pool is also top with all you need (parasol, deck chairs ...). The breakfast was also excellent with a wide variety of choices. At the restaurant level, Portalegre is a 5 minute drive with lots of good restaurants to eat! Now about Carla and her husband, they were so friendly, friendly, attentive to make our stay perfect. We spoke over an hour before we left, we even left late because the topics of discussion were great and it was a great time! I recommend this quinta to everyone, family, couples and others! We are just sad not to have stayed longer! Há tanta cás a dizer sobre to Carla, o seu esposo ea sua quinta that podia-s'écrever um livro! In resumido, a pequena casa em madeira é fantástica, calma, limpinha, bem decorada e no meio do monte, rodeado de árvores e natureza! In piscina will be excellent com tudo than é necessário (espreguiçadeiras, guarda-sóis ...). O pequeno almoço faith top com muita diversidade! Catering, Portalegre fica has 5 minutos of carro wave arranja tona deles com tudo o que quiser! Concernindo a Carla eo seu marido, são amorosos, semper a escuta para a nossa estadia ser perfeita. Falamos com eles but de uma ora antes de ir embora até saímos atrasados porque a conversa era tão boa e faith um momento tão bem passado! Recomendo esta quinta a todos: família, pares e but! Só estamos sad of não ter ficado but dias!

  • If you go to Portalegre, you must stay at Ana’s apartment. It is perfect! The apartment is much larger than it appears on the advertisement, it has very large rooms with high ceilings and large windows. The bedroom was spacious and the bed was super comfortable. We slept really well. Ana is a warm, friendly and helpful host and she let us use her kitchen. The apartment is well situated and on the edge of the historic zone. There is paid parking on Ana’s street (free on Sundays) or there is free on street parking around the corner (near the Galp petrol station). Highly recommend. Stay here!

    Carol2019-10-22T00:00:00Z

  • Sparkling clean, perfect location, and a lovely host! Big plus for us was the two pedestal fans, my partner is a really hot sleeper so it made for a comfortable sleep, which we don’t always have when we’re in an Airbnb! We had an amazing weekend in Portalegre and would love to go back some day.

    Situated in the beautiful Castelo de Vide region, Casa Lagar is a traditional Alentejo house recently renovated to offer a confortable stay in a rural area. The house has a fully equipped kitchen and a cozy dining area, a living room with fireplace and satellite TV, two bathrooms with shower and a bedroom with a king size bed (140cm wide). In the outdoor area you can find a small vegetable garden (whatever grows there is for you to enjoy! ) and enjoy a nice rest surrounded by nature.
    At our organic farm, Quinta Pombal, history goes back thousands of years. The Anta dos Pombais, a Portuguese national monument, is only a few steps away from Casa Lagar. There are many walking trails that can be used to explore our 16-ha, olive- and cork-tree-studded farm. Between wild areas and spaces used for agriculture, you might encounter sheep, countless species of birds and many other forms of wildlife.
    The region itself is ideal for hiking, there are lots of nature trails and inside the house you'll find maps of these routes. One of these hiking paths goes straight from our farm to Castelo de Vide, we highly recommend it. In the town you'll have plenty to visit: The castle, the many churches (the main one is quite impressive), the sinagogue and old jewish settlement and, of course, the local architecture. Nearby we recommend exploring the ancient megalithic structures (there is one on our farm, a 5000 year old dolmen), a visit to the "Povoa e Meadas" lake (excellent for birdwatching) and a mandatory visit to the town of Marvão with its beautiful castle on the hilltop (15 min drive).
  • We spent a wonderful weekend in Quinta do Pombal. The hosts were so kind all the time and we could enjoy privacy & nature. The house is a dream and we felt like at home!

    Samuel2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Lagar has everything you need, is fully equipped and cozy. Rui is a stunning host, which was very welcoming and helpful during all the process. Couldn’t expect more! It was just great! A beautiful house in the middle of heaven. If you crave for a relaxing weekend, search no more. Quinta pombal is the place.

  • The rates speak for themself; cleanliness, services, etc are superb. But it’s not only that, Rui and Almut go out of their way to make your visit unforgettable. Helpful directions for places to visit or for lunch, tasteful samples of fresh olive oil, plenty of food (bread,cheese, pasta,etc) in case you get there late and no markets available, delightful regional wine to have next to the fireplace...can’t recommend enough Rui’s apartment, you better book it and experience by yourself!

  • I stayed with my family only one night at Maria Carmen's house, but it was enough to make the most of her beautiful home, very bright and quiet with impeccable cleanliness and incredibly comfortable beds, and there were also toys for children colors, machine, etc. Very well stocked kitchen, which I hardly found in Portugal. Super recommended!

    Quinta Lua Branca, een magische en inspirerende plek in het natuurrpark Serra de São Mamede. Vier fraaie gastenverblijven bieden ruimte voor retraites, groepen en individuele gasten die van stilte, natuur, rust, luxe en comfort houden.
    Adega de vinho Adega de vinho is the former winery and wine cellar of the Quinta. The wine that was made here, was very famous in the area. Now, the cellar serves as a luxurious guest house with stunning views over the valley and mountains of Spain. It has a private entrance and consists of a bedroom with three beds, a nice bathroom, and patio doors give access to a private terrace. Bed linen and towels are provided. If required, we serve breakfast in the dining room of Casa Lua or outside on the terrace. Ageda de Vinho can be combined with Casa Santa Maria so that this kitchen facilities of this houses can be used. Description of the Quinta The quinta, built around 1827, is a lovely authentic and fruitful property, consisting of spacious terraces covered with a rich variety of trees and plants. Clean air and flowing clear water make this property a true paradise. Crickets, bees buzzing, chirping birds, and somewhere in the distance the sound of ringing bells of sheep and goats are typically familiar sounds. High in the sky a bird looking for prey. The spring ensures an exuberant colourful splendour of wild flowers and plants. The wealth of trees give plenty of shade, which is especially very pleasant in the hot summer months. In all these sounds and excess you experience a kind of rest, freeing up ear and eye for the beauty of nature. The high altitude of the property makes the view over the valley and the mountains impressive. In the night hours a spectacular starry sky is visible and the moon creates a mysterious lit atmosphere. The quinta is named after this particular light the moon is giving. From the quinta you can enjoy hiking through forests and farmlands. Marked with ancient stone walls, paths lead you through olive and vineyards, past cork oaks and citrus trees, abandoned ruins, which determine the atmosphere of unspoiled times. It is more the exception than the rule to run into someone. The medieval town of Portalegre is on the other side of the mountain and is accessible by foot or car within easy reach. Until the purchase in 2008 Lua Branca was abandoned and overgrown, waiting for a new owner with an eye and heart for this hidden paradise. Therefore a project was started with the goal to create a centre for consciousness and inspiration. The renovation started in 2010 with the renovation of the main house, the old servant house and a large ruin that once served as stables. This was done with care and attention to detail, harmony, beauty and (environmental) quality and with respect for the architecture of the farmhouse and its surroundings. Now, the main house is occupied, the servant house is transformed into a comfortable guest house and the ruin is rebuilt in a large group space. Below the main house was a old winery which is now made into a guestroom as well. If all houses are done, we are able to provide up to 16 people with a wonderful time at our quinta! We like to inform our guests about the many attractions, restaurants or other events.

  • You will not be disappointed if you stay at Carla’s B&B. Quinta Lua Branca. The place is absolutely breathtaking including the view from the hillside it’s situated on overlooking Spain. The rooms and cabins are very stylish and the bed very comfortable. The pool and outdoor kitchen and fireplace was perfect. Breakfast is prepared with care and is wonderfully fresh every morning. It was very very clean and the hosts are genuinely caring and loving people. Chow, Pauline and Cliff from Calgary Canada.

  • A wonderful little paradise! Beautiful scenery, looking out over the valley, in the quiet calm of the Portalegre district. Everything is super clean, the beds are of great quality, the shower is amazing. It smells like lavender and fresh fruit everywhere (figs, grapes, plums, rosemary...). The pool was a wonderful refreshment with the warm temperature that we had (34 Celsius in late September). Around Portalegre are plenty great restaurants. Carla gave us many options and suggestions for good food and sight seeing. We would definitely recommend everyone to book a few nights at the Quinta Lua Branca!

  • All those looking for a wonderfully beautiful place in a quiet idyllic location, are at Carla and Loui just right. The property is a dream: great rooms, great garden and pool with lounge area and outdoor kitchen. The two are incredibly nice and interested hosts, we were warmly welcomed and provided with many valuable tips for excursions in the beautiful surroundings and good and regional restaurants. We felt very comfortable during our entire stay.

  • Well designed space in a quiet village. Thoughtful touches and a warm welcome awaited us. Highly recommended for a tranquil getaway.

    Terry2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing experience. The learning about the olive tree culture was valuable. The house is quiet, comfortable, extremely clean and tastefully decorated. The amenities were amazing and the hospitality impeccable. The experience of being accompanied by Daniela during the period was delightful. Certainly recommend it!

    Luis Felipe2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • An awesome place in the midst of olive trees. I was welcomed with some fruit, cheese and a home-made sauce which created quite an ambience. The place is thoroughly kept to provide you a great escape. Totally recommended. Some wishes: unfortunately, there were no tours available as mentioned in the messages (due to the fact the guide was out that day, which I was unafraid of until the evening prior to the offered tour). The pool has not been cleaned, however I had a great time there with walking on my own and it was not a problem.

    Elena2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful place. António and Afonso and staff, Daniela, make you feel very welcomed, they are attentive to whatever need you may have and are very giving and friendly. Will stay here again and for longer. The bread and olive oil and cheese was amazing!!!!!

    Briony2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • To repeat without doubt. The person responsible for check-in and the entire stay was the tireless Daniela who went so far as to go to the accommodation at 1am to help us with a little problem, no one else would. The house is fantastic at all levels; decoration, amenities, pool, landscape framing, etc. Quality, comfort and hospitality are the hallmarks of this accommodation. Thank you very much and we promise to return as soon as possible.

    Miguel2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice. We love it !!!

    Sandra2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed this cosy house in the beautiful surroundings of Marvão. The house was very clean when we arrived and the bedrooms, beds and sheets are fresh and clean. Although the A/C in both bedrooms makes a little bit of noise (but acceptable) at the lowest fan level, it works like a charm if you want to sleep in coolness. The combination of good A/C and clean and fresh beds made our stay wonderful, as during the day you would spend most of your time outside. The kitchen is simple but cosy! It had everything we needed: refrigerator with deep-freezer compartment, microwave, induction cooking plates, a big decent sink and a good coffee machine (capsule based). The entrance hall and living room are well decorated and offer a nice place to read a book in the evening. The Wi-Fi is not very fast, but it worked stable and it even offered enough bandwidth for our kids to enjoy Youtube :-) The outside area is very nice too. Although the terrace in front of the house is very close (and quite open) to the street, this was no issue for us since there is little movement in this little street going down to the Olive Oil Museum and Galegos. It is the only point of improvement that we see: if you are really looking for privacy in the garden, this might not be best house to book because of the openness to the street. The area around the swimming pool is very charming and offers 4 good garden beds to have some rest under the shade of the trees. I read in a comment that the swimming pool was not clean, but when we arrived it was perfect. Of course you will have to take out some leaves and twigs every day because you are in the middle of beautiful Alentejo nature with trees, but this took us no more than 5 minutes and our kids actually loved doing that :-) There is a small BBQ that works just perfect to prepare a BBQ for 4 persons, but the hosts can provide another one if you would need it. At 50m from the house, there is a little bar where you can buy ice-creams or have a coffee or beer. They also sell small dishes such as the typical Portuguese Bifana (bread with pork meat steak in the middle), toast, delicious omelette, ... A 5 minutes drive brings you to the Portagem Praia Fluvial, some kind of a natural swimming pool in which the water from the river Sever is completely renewed every week (closed on Wednesday because of this). It has a very nice grass area and the water is perfect on hot days. Our kids loved this place and it has a small bar for ice creams, drinks and simple food. In the direct surroundings you find other restaurants as well. Of course Marvão (12 minutes drive) and other villages such as Castelo de Vide (15 minutes) are just stunning and a joy to visit. Portalegre is 25 minutes. The hosts made us feel very welcome. The check-in went perfect and in case we needed anything we would send a simple text message and they would take immediate action. Upon arrival we received some oranges and prunes, yummy! Thank you Daniela and António for this great service. During our stay (more than a week), we also visited the Olive Oil Museum which is a 5 minute walk from the house. Host Daniela, perfectly speaking English, took us on a tour and let us taste the very delicious Olive Oil of Marvão, locally produced without machines to pick the olives. We bought a few bottles for our friends and family because it is really tasty, a huge difference with commercial olive oil from the supermarket. These hosts show you the Alentejo style of taking take of you and making you really feel at home. An absolute recommendation.

    My place is an organic farm where you can experience a life near to self sufficiency and living off-the-grids. But no worries, i'll be working on the garden and ready to give all the support that you need, like a simple corkscrew or a way to send an urgent e-mail. This spot is on a isolated valley on the center of a Natural Park with trekking paths and birdwatching, roman and prehistoric spots. You’ll love the quietness, the outdoors and the stars by night. Kids will love it. Pets are welcome.
    An isolated organic farm surrounded by wild nature.
    We are surrounded by wild nature. It is very common to ear, but quite rare to see, wild pigs, foxes and other wild animals. This is a perfect place for birdwatching and trekking. From here you can explore the vast area of the natural park with his old chestnut fields or the historical heritage around.
  • It was 3 days in paradise. Generous land with so many beautiful plants and creatures, house built with love, kind host. Zé you made something special in that serras, and we're very grateful for this precious gift. Good luck! And hope to see you soon.

    Olga2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • José and his low impact farm stay were both great. José was very hospitable and sincere; he offered much information about his farm and the surrounding towns. He also has 3 friendly dogs who were eager to show us around the farm. The house itself was super cute; A very rustic, homely cottage feeling to it. it hosted everything we needed (except the hot water for the showers was a little tricky to manage) for a comfortable stay. The property and area of José‘s farm was pure magic. We will stay again when we return to Portugal for a longer duration. Cheers José and Heidi, Tim & Yvonne

    Timothy2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Reality exceeds any expectation. It is a breath of fresh air that shows you the happiness of living with what you really need and feeling part of the world. The accommodation is beautiful, the hospitality they show you and the affection of their animals make you feel at home. Definitely recommended and of course looking forward to returning.

    Natalia2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Unique experience: no mobile network, no electricity, no car noise. But after all it is possible as we could verify having a heated house, hot bath, light to read at night, etc ....

    Pedro2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Zé's house for a weekend. It was an amazing experience to relax, to listen to the birds in the morning, to walk in the natural park and for some calm days, enjoying its incredible self sustainable project. The farm is very beautiful, the house functional and Zé was an excellent host. We talked a lot about the project and it was always very attentive and available. The dogs and cats are very friendly too, they made walks with us close to home! We could cook dinner with fresh ingredients from the garden, which were delicious. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get out of town or discover a new traditional Portuguese region. There are good restaurants nearby, and cafes. The village, Alegrete, is also charming. The access is good and easy to reach. The house has very interesting details, such as the wood stove and the water heater, which we found particularly curious. The house is warm and comfortable in winter. We will certainly be back!

    Sara And João2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • For nature lovers go there with your eyes closed! José is very caring and his dogs very good company. We would have stayed longer ...

    Alegrete, Portalegre, Portugal

    Quinta da Vila Maria is a former wine maker’s country estate, located in the beautiful and unspoilt countryside of the Serra de São Mamede Natural Park, near to the historic towns of Portalegre, Marvão and Castelo de Vide. Built around 1900 this country house, with its unique style and striking architecture, has been lovingly restored and modernised and offers comfortable accommodation to guests seeking peace and quiet, nature, a restful atmosphere, a friendly welcome and great hospitality.
    Apartment “Kiwi” is for 2 guests. It is spacious and quiet with countryside views of olive and cork trees. The apartment comprises of a large, light and bright bedroom with a large double bed (160 x 200cm), an en-suite bathroom with shower, a living area with a sofa, LCD TV and stereo system, and a well equipped kitchenette/dining area with breakfast bar, hob/stovetop, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave oven/grill, toaster and kettle. Apartment “Kiwi” has high ceilings and big windows giving it a light and airy feel and contains everything you need for a comfortable holiday. The apartment has free WiFi. The large terrace at the front of the house is the perfect place to have dinner or enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. You can sunbathe and relax on the terrace beside the pond, accompanied only by birdsong and the gentle burble of water or, if you prefer shade, under the trees of the “linden tree terrace” or beneath one of the many olive, cork or fruit trees. Guests are welcome to walk around the Quinta’s vineyard and land. The vineyard, which is organic, has many grape vines that are in the region of 100 years old. Being a traditional Alentejo vineyard the vines are not on wires but grow freely like a bush and there are olive and cork trees growing amongst the vines. One of the olive trees is reportedly over 1000 years old. The old adega, which is now reception, still has the large “talha” or clay wine pots, some of which date to the 1920s, that many years ago were used to make red wine. If you are interested in nature various animals and birds can be seen at the Quinta with many more species to be seen in the surrounding area of the Natural Park.
    Quinta da Vila Maria is in a peaceful location on the edge of the village of Reguengo in the Serra de São Mamede Natural Park, a protected nature reserve lying along the border with Spain noted for its beauty and nature. The Quinta’s location makes it an excellent base for exploring this exceptional and unspoilt corner of Portugal, or if you simply want to sit back and relax from your usual day-to-day routine, Quinta da Vila Maria offers a calm and restful atmosphere under a warm, blue sky. For walkers there are numerous quiet walking trails to explore in the Natural Park enabling you to enjoy the clean air, peace and beautiful countryside so typical of this area. We have self-guided walking maps and notes available in reception for the various walking trails. Mountain bikers can discover the Park on the quiet tracks and roads through the hills. The Natural Park supports more than half of the species of birds that breed in Portugal and is a stopping off point for many birds migrating between Africa and Northern Europe so there is plenty for bird watchers to look out for. For those who want to sightsee and soak up Portuguese history, there are many historic towns, castles and other places of interest within easy reach, such as: Marvão, Castelo de Vide, Portalegre, the Roman city at Ammaia and villa at Torre de Palma, the Megalithic archaeology route and numerous small, traditional Portuguese villages. Day trips can also be made to the historic towns of Campo Maior, Estremoz, Badajoz, the UNESCO World Heritage town of Elvas which has amazing military fortifications, the small pretty town of Vila Viçosa with its incredible ducal palace and Mérida, also a UNESCO World Heritage site and said to have the best Roman remains outside of Italy. If you are interested in wine, Reguengo and the surrounding area is a renowned wine producing region with a number of vineyards nearby. If you would like to visit a vineyard and do some wine tasting let us know beforehand and we can arrange a visit for you. Although the Quinta does not have a swimming pool there is a beautiful, open-air pool with snack bar and picnic area in the village, a short walk from the Quinta. There are also open-air pools at Monte Carvalho (6 kms), Quinta da Saúde (5 kms) and the river beach, swimming pools, snack bar, picnic area, restaurants and cafes near Marvão (14.5 kms). Please note that all swimming pools and river swimming are seasonal. There are a number of excellent restaurants within a 5 minute drive of the Quinta, all serving delicious Alentejo food and wines. In Portalegre there are many more restaurants to choose from, numerous cafes, six supermarkets and twice a week there is vegetable, fish, meat and delicatessen market, a great place to buy fresh produce from local suppliers. The local baker's van stops outside the house four times a week with a selection of Alentejo style breads and cakes.
  • Home and unequaled services, extraordinary house and impeccable interior, with a wonderful garden. On all points of satisfaction of the site, if it were possible, it would put 6 stars for everything.

  • Our experience staying at Quinta da Vila Maria was better than a 5-star hotel experience! Our every expectation was exceeded by Ed and Jane who were the most amazing and attentive hosts. They really make every effort to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Communication was really quick and smooth before and during the stay, the apartment was very clean and spacious, the breakfast was superb... We highly recommend this place and we would love to come back some day :)

    Gael2018-07-16T00:00:00Z

    Robert2018-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • It was a happy 5 stars stay. Jane and Ed restore a beautiful old house with its floors, windows, and high ceilings, overlooking a century-old vineyard and olives. The flat was very clean, well equipped for longer stays, comfortable, and bright. They are excellent hosts and it is available a lot of tourist information. Breakfast is very complete and they are attentive to health food restrictions. We absolutely recommend it to everyone who are looking for peaceful Alentejo.

    Welcome to "Pouso": for those looking for comfort, simplicity and a unique experience in a traditional Mongolian yurt, hidden away on a 4 hectare olive and cork farm. This tranquil and Romantic escape is surrounded by nature and the singing of birds, the tinkling of sheep bells and the gentle rustle of the cork oak leaves. Situated within the São Mamede Natural Park, from Pouso you can walk up a medieval track to the hilltop town of Marvão where "one can see the entire land" (José Saramago).
    Our 6 meter diameter yurt has a comfy double bed where you can gaze at hundreds of stars through the crown at night and hear the crickets lullaby and goat bells in the morning. There is a fully equipped kitchen attached to the yurt and a private hot water shower and compost toilet, with panoramic views of our olive trees a short walk away. Come and enjoy the beautiful simplicity of life!
    Sao Mamede National Park, in Alto Alentejo, is still an untouched area where time has stood still. There are many scenic and historic walks, It's a great spot for birdwatching and tasting local cheeses and wine still made the traditional way.
  • We loved Suzana and Marty’s yurt so much, we came back to Portugal to stay in it again. Even better this time. What an idyllic, peaceful refuge that connects you to the land, the people and the food of the Alentejo. We miss it so much already.

    Natalie2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place was an amazing place to stay! It actually had the most comfortable bed and the best shower of my entire trip. SOOOOO calm and peaceful, day and night. A beautiful place to enjoy a starry night with a glass of wine, bread and cheese. LOVED it here.

    John2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Where to start! Our stay at Suzana and Marty’s was exceptional! From the moment of our arrival we felt so welcomed and at home. The Yurt was wonderful, super clean, so many thoughtful touches were put throughout and it was incredibly comfortable. They offered many local tips and were great to communicate with. This is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery with some wine. There are many great walks close by and would definitely recommend doing these. The amenities are also great, the shower was spacious and of course there’s the toilet with a view! Overall, Suzana and Marty are such a kind and lovely couple and their Yurt and the overall stay here is certainly a reflection of that. Can not recommend enough! We hope to be back sometime. Thank you Suzana and Marty!

    Andrew2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • The ideal place to recharge during the weekend. For those who like to be in close proximity to nature, there is no better than this! 5 Star Hospitality.

    Bruno2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Ideal to spend a few days of disconnection in nature. Highly recommended! Suzana and Marty are incredible hosts, their hospitality and their unbeatable treatment.

  • Our stay at the yurt was just great. The space inside is big and we had everything we needed. Outside the yurt is really beautiful and calm. I could just say that everything was so perfect that the rest of our trip we were comparing everything with this yurt and nothing was as perfect as this one! Thank you Suzana and Marty !

    Parisa2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Awasome Yurt in the middle of Olive trees in High Alentejo. Great location, amazingly comfy stay. Suzana and Marty are lovely and have built a paradise on earth. We have loved our stay and will definitely go back.

    Felipe2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • The yurt is probably the best AirBnB experience we’ve ever had. All the little touches made it feel like a home away from home. It’s got everything you need if you want to cook, but is close enough to the towns in the area should you want to eat out. A great place to base yourself to explore the area. It’s really beautiful with so much history. Marty and Susanna are great also - so helpful and thoughtful. Marty gave us a tour of the old roads and stone graves on the property - hundreds/thousands of years old. Muito obrigada!

  • Gosh what an amazing place! Can't describe how stunning the location is, and what a unique experience this was for us and our kids. Fred has done an incredible job in creating this treehouse - it's wonderful, with incredible views and a very natural vibe. It was hot, so we slept with the windows wide open and it felt like sleeping outside. Three small children and us, all sleeping peacefully under the stars with the sound of the breeze in the trees. It was magical.

    Rupert2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very interesting space for those who want to be in contact with nature. House with all that is indispensable to have a good stay. Hospitality 5 stars. Access to the house is a bit complicated for those who are driving.

    David2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic place to unwind as a couple or with friends, with breathtaking views, lots of nice trails and places to see both on foot and in the car; and a down to earth host! We'll be back again for sure and soon

    Eugene2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is a gorgeous place for people who enjoy sunsets and some quiet time to read and relax with friends and loved ones.

    Marco2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Wauw!! Amazing view from a great place out of the ordinary. Don't hesitate! Absolutely recommended.

    Ruth2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin is an experience in itself, it is not like any house you can rent. It is the perfect place for adventurers, lovers of nature and freedom. It is in the middle of the mountains and the views are spectacular. Arriving is somewhat complicated, so it is okay to make a purchase of food in the supermarket before going. It is not the place for very squared or too scrupulous people (because the toilet is special). Otherwise it has almost all the comforts of a "normal" house: kitchen, refrigerator, comfortable beds, a good bathtub, there is coverage ... And most importantly, tranquility. I would love to be able to return soon, a pity that you are so far from our house because it is ideal to disconnect a few days from time to time. Frederic is a great person, all great from beginning to end, thank you very much for sharing your home with us !!

  • We had an amazing time at this beautiful tree house. The sunsets and night skies were amazing. And waking up to that view from the bedroom is something i can recommend to anyone.

    Castelo de Vide, Portalegre, Portugal

    Wonderful typical Alentejo house restored. Quiet, relased and Romantic site in a country setting and with a small garden. Cosy in winter, cool in summer. Stunning views, Although it is 'across the valley' from the town, it is only a 10 min walk to the superb town centre. (Bars, restaurants, the castle , etc) Being across the valley also affords you the best views of the town. You can enjoy hiking, fantastic historical sites and the incredible Alegrete vineyards.
    It is a simple, cozy and comfortable space, with a large bedroom with two beds, a large bathroom and a large living room with fireplace, it is cool in summer and comfortable in winter is oriented to the south so it has plenty of light. It is located on a large plot of olive trees and plants: rosebushes, honeysuckle ... and with incredible views of the mountains and the city.
    The neighborhood is in front of the village of Alegrete and its castle. Very quiet and relaxed It is located in the middle of the field, but we have neighboring neighbors of other plots with houses. Great observatory of birds and the sky. Ideal for making small routes of nearby trails. To see in Alegrete; the mother church of the sixteenth century, the chapels of São Pedro (XV century) and Misericordia (XVII century) or the clock tower, located next to the mother church and dating from the sixteenth century.
  • Clean and cosy with outstanding views.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Isabel's. The space with lots of style.

    Alexander2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • This was a lovely place. The views were amazing - being opposite the ruined castle of Alegrete and looking down the valley were both much better than we expected. We really liked the cottage itself - lots of nice touches and very rustic. It was very clean and easy to use. We didn't have great weather but we reckon that the front garden balcony would have been a wonderful place to sit in the sun. It was also very easy to get to places - we thought that Marvao was amazing. All in all a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday and we would certainly highly recommend this place.

  • We had a wonderful time! We booked it same day as our other reservation canceled last minute. We were so lucky to find Quinta da Dourada. A beautiful location in the hills of Marvão. Quiet, peaceful and comfortable. Nuno was a wonderful host!!! Met us when we arrived, made sure we had everything we needed and arranged for laundry to get sent out!! I can’t give him 6 stars or I would. We will be back!

  • There are places where you can feel very quickly that here someone with care, intelligence and love wanted to create a place where visitors should feel comfortable. This place is undoubtedly one of them. I especially liked that everything really includes everything up to the bottle opener, Bluetooth Speaker, of course very comfortable bed or hospitable way provided good wine, all a certain value. If I may say so, I do not think anything else would be suitable for the hosts. With their special helpfulness and kindness they complete the place to a stylish place of rest and relaxation. Thanks again!

    Martin2019-09-16T00:00:00Z

  • Probably the nicest Airbnb place I've stayed at. The extra touches by Alice (fruit, fresh bread, cheese) were really appreciated. Plus, I arrived early and it was Alice's daughter who kept apologizing. Truly great hosts of a great apartment in a lovely location.

    Paul2020-02-27T00:00:00Z

  • Perfectly clean apartment, Alice is a great host and of an exceptional kindness, we appreciated her little attentions, milk, coffee, rolls, jam, cakes, fruits, drinks, etc ... nothing was missing for good to start our stay ! The location is ideal near the castle and the city center in a charming little street where we meet tourists who visit the castle or just walk in the charming narrow streets. Very quiet at night, rest after walks is repairing. Everything is perfect. Alice is really a SUPERHOST and we wish her many visitors!

    Josiane & Jose2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is a good place for a couple who wants to enjoy a few days of vacation. It is close to the city center and the castle which is very nice to visit. You can count on pampering from Alice for both breakfast and other meals. It is an extremely clean, and quite cozy apartment. I hope one day there I can go again.

    Castelo de Vide, Portalegre, Portugal

    Integrada numa paisagem mista entre a serra e a planície, mesmo à beira do Parque Natural da Serra de São Mamede, a casa da figueira oferece-se como ponto de partida para viagens de descoberta a vilas com castelos, a praias fluviais de águas frescas e límpidas e a monumentos, caminhos e percursos pedestres de interesse. Pode-se caminhar ou andar de bicicleta pelas estradas de terra batida em volta. A comida e os vinhos da região são únicos; as sensações perdurarão..
    Situada no 1º andar da moradia da família, a casa é simpática, acolhedora e banhada pela luz solar. A envolvente é um espaço próprio, ajardinado com plantas variadas e árvores ornamentais e frutíferas. De entre o todo, destaca-se a grande figueira centenária; o emblema da casa. Grande parte da decoração é fruto do engenho dos proprietários, que seguem e aplicam alguns conceitos de reutilização e de aproveitamento; e se mantêm sempre à distância de uma palavra simpática..
    Toda a região é muito bonita e calma oferecendo-se ao desfrute de quem a quiser descobrir. São possíveis os passeios a pé ou de bicicleta, seja pelas estradas de asfalto regionais ou pelas de terra batida . Em alguns quilómetros em redor, pode-se andar de cavalo ou de burro, podem observar-se rebanhos de cabras e de ovelhas e algumas manadas pequenas de vacas. Pelo céu, quase sempre límpido e azul, aves chilreiam, cruzando-o. Destacando-se, as águias voam majestosas rasando as penhas graníticas que se vão erguendo aqui e ali em cordilheira. A cerca de 7km fica a cidade de Portalegre (a cidade branca, no dizer de um poeta local) de cujos pontos de interesse se destacam: Casa-museu José Régio, Museu das tapeçarias Guy Fino, Sé Catedral, entre outros. As vilas de Castelo de Vide, de Marvão, de Alegrete, de Niza, do Crato, e outras em volta, são, definitivamente, merecedoras de uma visita mais alargada.
  • Maria is very kind and communicates correctly in French. Fortios and his house are ideally placed to discover an area rich in heritage and authenticity.

  • A good surprise to find Maria's delicious home in Fortios, a great lodging option in an extremely cozy and pleasant place near Marvão and Castelo de Vide. She even left us jams and jams made by her for breakfast and helped us sort out the arrival day dinner with an Alentejo soup, when by the time we ran out of options. A person of good heart and in tune with nature and makes anyone feel at home. We love it!

    Suzana2019-09-08T00:00:00Z

  • Our stay with Bernard was wonderful !!! Communication was very fast and fluid from the beginning. The dream house and surroundings. We were looking for a place with charm in nature, to rest and be at peace, and that is precisely what we found. Bernard was very attentive to us, and served us some delicious breakfasts! The views of Marvao from the house are beautiful, and the night sky is fading! Nearby are restaurants, swimming pools, and charming villages. We would return without thinking twice, and we highly recommend it!

  • Great place for those who want to rest and be in contact with nature. A space to welcome! I recommend

  • Our flight into Lisbon was delayed, and with the long process of picking up bags, clearing customs and immigration, and getting rental car, we did not arrive until after midnight. Bernard was not at home but his friend Ben was there and got up from bed to greet us. We loved the "stable", suite where we spent 3 nights. Bernard's place is a great base for hiking or touring the area. And the sheep bell alarm clock worked very well. We cooked dinner one night and used the fridge to store breakfast food. We enjoyed long talks with Ben and we were glad to have a chat with Bernard on his return. It was a perfect stay!

  • Very special place in a nice authentic house. Wonderfull setting with view on Marvão. Balcony overviewing olivegard and you will hear the sheepbells. Bernard is very kind and has lots of good tips. There is a bus service ( to Marvão , Castel de Vide, Portalegre and Beja) and restaurant on walking distance from the house. I came with public transport. Breakfast for a bit extra is worthwile.

    Sanneke2019-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • This beautiful accommodation is located about 1 km from the village very quiet and the scenery is very beautiful and the view of Marvao too. You can walk in the area very nice, especially in the spring when everything is blooming, especially the broom. If you want to stay longer but I would recommend the apartment, then you can cook something. With the room there is the possibility to book a breakfast, I did not do that, eat little in the morning. Kettle is available, tea and soluble coffee too.

  • Bernard’s home is a wonderful place to stay. It is walking distance to Marvao, very near Castelo de Vide, and Portagem. Bernard has excellent references of restaurants nearby. The premises are beautiful! He is an excellent host!

    Consuelo2019-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • The region, the area, is amazing, San Antonio, Marvao, is spectacular. Calm and worth seeing and walking, to forget everything!

  • José’s place is located so perfect right below the one castle to visit. It was clean and very comfortable. He added a little welcome gift of homemade liquor and a bag of chestnuts. And he met me on site and went over the whole unit and gave me extra tips on things to see and do in the area. Very kind and generous. Would absolutely recommend this place to stay!

    Quinta Lua Branca, a magical estate in the Serra de São Mamede Natural Park. This quiet and inspiring place offers accommodation for retreats, groups and individual guests who love tranquility, nature, rest, luxury and comfort.
    Casa João Casa João is an atmospheric & cozy wooden guest house, suitable for up to 6 people maximum. The cottage stands at the edge of the forest and offers lots of privacy. The large covered porch has a magnificent view over the valley and the mountains of Spain. The house includes a living room with a well equipped kitchen , two double bedrooms , a spacious loft with sleeping for 2 people and a bathroom . Bed linen, kitchen linen and towels are provided. Description of Quinta Lua Branca . The quinta, built around 1827 , is a beautifully authentic and fertile property consisting of spacious terraces covered with a rich variety of trees and plants. Clean air and abundant potable , clear water make this property a true paradise . Crickets, buzzing bees, chirping birds , with somewhere in the distance the sound of tinkling bells of sheep and goats are typically familiar sounds . High in the sky a bird of prey in search of prey . Spring ensures an exuberant colourful splendor of wild flowers and plants . The wealth of trees give plenty of shade which is especially very pleasant in the hot summer months. In all these sounds and abundance you experience a kind of quiet rest, so you retrieve ear and eye for the beauty and abundant blessing of nature. The high altitude , the view over the valley and the mountains is impressive. In the night hours there are also impressive views of the spectacular starry sky and the moon creates a mysterious lit atmosphere . The quinta also owes her name to this strikingly bright moonlight. The medieval town of Portalegre is situated on the other side of the mountain and is accessible by foot or car within easy reach . Until the purchase in 2008 Quinta Lua Branca was deserted and overgrown, waiting for a new owner with an eye and heart for this hidden paradise. That's how a project with the aim of creating a center for concious (well)being and inspiration came into existence. In October 2010 the go-ahead was given for a thorough restoration and renovation of the main house, the servant house and a large ruin that once served as a stable . All this with care and attention for detail , harmony , beauty and ( eco ) quality with respect for the architecture of the farmhouse and its surroundings . Meanwhile, the main house is occupied , the servant house transformed into a comfortable guest house and the ruins rebuilt as a large group room. Below the main house is the old winery made into ​​a guestroom. In the shadow of the forest are two additional wooden guesthouses built . There is a swimming pool with an adjoining indoor lounge / relaxation area with fireplace and a rear covered outdoor kitchen with barbecue .
    From the estate you can make lovely walks through the woods and fields. The ancient stone walls with marked trails lead through olive groves and vineyards, past cork oak and citrus trees, abandoned ruins, which determine the atmosphere of unspoiled times. It is more the exception than the rule to meet anyone.
  • We had a lovely stay at claras would come again

  • Carla was amazing and our stay was perfect

    Heitor2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice, beautiful and peaceful place to spend your vacation. We really enjoyed the hospitality, the cottage and the area. It was very hot, but the pool and shaded terrace made up for this. Our wooden house (6 persons) is fine, natural and sufficiently spacious. You can sit outside and enjoy the view. The cottage itself has no WiFi (sometimes nice), but at the house of Carla you can use it. Carla gives good tips for the area, including a great restaurant. Swimming pool has salt water, has a wonderful temperature. All together a top location for a holiday.

  • Carla’s place is something very special! The views and property surrounding the Quinta and cabins are breathtaking. I enjoyed eating fresh oranges from the orange trees. The cabin we stayed in was perched along the edge of the property with views of the Spanish mountains in the distance, certainly an unexpected treat! The cabin is not luxury accommodations, but the place was perfect for our one night stay on our way north to the Douro Valley.

    Marjorie2019-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • Carla was very friendly and helpful and took the time to make lots of recommendations for our visit. The view from the Quinta is amazing, the pool was cold but refreshing!

    Rachel2019-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place in the middle of nature!

    Korneel2018-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • If you come for culture, peace, space and hospitality, this is the place to be. Beautifully situated in nature between the cork trees just outside the picturesque Portalegre. Owner Carla is always available and has an arsenal of tips for sights and nice restaurants in the nearby but also distant environment. And at a very sympathetic rate.

  • Amazing stay! We felt very welcomed. We stayed during the first days of December, and the room was very cozy and warm. We will return for sure.

    Inês2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Very nicely located house with beautiful views of Marvão. A bit hard to find but Bernard came to pick us up so that was certainly not a problem. Everything is there for a longer stay. Very beautiful region. Very good restaurant within walking distance. Very friendly owner. And our dog was also welcome. Highly recommended! Thank you very much Bernard for your hospitality!

    Christel2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at Casa Margarida, and had a very relaxed weekend in beautiful surroundings. Bernard made sure that everything was taken care of for our arrival. We hope to come back in the future! Thank you

  • Bernard's studio just outside of Marvao is a lovely and peaceful retreat. The bed is very comfortable, nice kitchen stocked with all amenities we needed, plenty of hot water, good wifi, and Bernard provided plenty of firewood which kept the place toasty warm. The property is beautiful with olive and oak trees and a view of the Marvao castle, and the only sounds you hear are birds chirping and sheep bells in the distance. Bernard is very kind and helpful, while not intrusive at all. He provided us with a map and directions to walk to the Marvao castle which was a beautiful (hour and a half) climb through the countryside and cork oak groves. Highly recommend Bernard's place - my husband and I really enjoyed our stay.

    Jenna2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect place to disconnect and be calm, there are beautiful views of Marvao.

    Martika2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Bernard's house was a real surprise. The photos do not prepare us for the vision of the paradise that surrounds the building. Around the house there are a series of courtyards with tables and chairs to enjoy a beautiful view of the Marvao, the natural scenery that includes several Bernard land that resembles the Tuscan countryside or a night sky that is already filled with stars. I didn't remember seeing such a clear Milky Way). The interior of the house is as you can see in the pictures, but it seemed bigger to us live. It is cool in summer and in winter it should be very warm, considering the stone walls and the existence of a salamander. It has a single room, with a large bed on one side and a fully equipped kitchen on the other. The door you see in the pictures is from the bathroom (I recommend carrying slippers for the bath). Bernard is a friend and is always on call for anything you need, including the generosity of offering us fresh bread and some products from your backyard. It was a great stay and we hope to be back one day!
