“Beautiful farm”
Reviewed 3 June 2020 for a stay in June 2020

We had a wonderful few days on the farm. The cottage was lovely! Very cosy and clean. Our two year old son had the best time meeting all the farm animals and running around all day. Very peaceful and relaxing with beautiful scenery. Susana and her family were lovely. Highly recommend!

“beautiful night sky”
Reviewed 28 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Nice rural location and welcoming owners.
The cottage is small and simple but everything is there for two people if they are to sleep in one bed. Just remember that in the summer is going to be very hot also in the cottage however this is worth of seeing beautiful night sky.

“Peace and relaxation in a beautiful rural setting.”

Susana and Alberto looked after us really well. We had read the reviews and purchased some food in Apponches on the way, because the cottage is quite secluded. Susana was lovely and had left us some bread,jams, orange juice and also came around with a bowl of eggs. It went a little cool in the evenings and we made a fire which facinating enough, heated the other rooms as well as the lounge. Beautiful wild flowers surrounded the cottage and fields. A perfect getaway to unwind.

“Unbelievable quiet place!”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Alberto and Susana created a piece of paradise. Thank you. We will come back for sure. The place is an original place of quietness and nature. I think the owners live a dream. We liked it very much, the oak trees, the cat, the sheeps and all again the nature.

“Perfect for nature lovers”
Reviewed 21 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Absolutely loved this place. It's in deep countryside, in Serra de Sao Mamede National Park,amidst Portugal's wonderful cork oak woodlands, one of Europe's most diverse environments. Woke up every day to cuckoo, hoopoe, golden oriole, nightingale. Wildflowers to the doorstep. Slept to (faint) sound of goat bells. Simply furnished from ( I think) IKEA.Plus usual home comforts like wifi and DVD. Yes, it's small but manages two people very well. Comfortable bed, seating etc.Decent shower and washroom, generously sized for such a small house. Based on an active small farm. Owners, widely travelled, helpful and friendly with good English, Italian and, of course, Portuguese.Amongst other things they are ready to supply you with unlimited eggs! A large and amiable dog which, if you're not a dog lover (I am), the owners will keep contained. Several miles from any shops and cafes but easy enough to reach with car. Wider range of shops and restaurants within an hour's drive at Portalegre and (our favourite) Estremoz, with its unmissable Saturday market. The only shortcoming was the kitchen facilities, adequate but limited. Two (not very easily controllable) gas rings, no oven (but a microwave). And I'm sure if you wanted specific kitchen items Susanna would find them for you.
We stayed seven days and look forward to returning for longer
