Thank you Steph and Neil for making our stay at your beautiful cottage so relaxing, fun and memorable. The cottage is excellently equipped, the gardens and pool are beautifully kept and you, the hosts are so friendly and happy! There are many sights to see within easy driving distance and we would come back to stay at your place any time!!

“Peaceful and Relaxing, all we wanted!”
Reviewed 7 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Many thanks to Steph and Neil for their hospitality during our stay in the cottage.
We had a wonderfully relaxing time in a beautiful setting with the benefit of glorious weather, private pool and choice of patios.
We have rented many properties in different countries in Europe and each one has had it's own charm and things to remember.
I can honestly say that I couldn't think of anything that we needed while we were there.
The chickens (led by George) and donkey(Luigi) and sheep (Molly and Mabel), added to the charm and our hosts were discreet but at the same time careful to ensure we were comfortable and furnished with advice on the local area.
It is a quiet part of Portugal, which is what we wanted, but there are plenty of places to visit close by and a good selection of restaurants and shops within striking distance.
We had a wonderful holiday

“Lovely place - suited us perfectly”
Reviewed 11 July 2011 for a stay in June 2011

We were very happy with this rental. Although it is next to the owners' home, the cottage is completely private and peaceful with its own garden and patio. Convenient for trips to Evora, Elvas, Portalegre, Marvao etc. Thank you to Steph and Neil for their warm welcome.

So pleased these guests had a lovely break at our place. It is a lovely undiscovered part of Portugal and only minutes from Spain.
