A haven of peace and quiet.

5 of 5
This modern well equipped cottage is a joy to visit. The owner has thought of everything that a traveler would need when away from home. His mother and father are lovely people who speak good english and are very attentive, providing us with organic fruit and veg from their pottager garden and useful information. There are a couple of small grocery shops and also a couple of small typical Portuguese bar/cafes. Of course the larger supermarkets are 10 minutes away by car in both directions from the village. The people of the village are very friendly. There are lots of interesting places to visit around the area and Praia da Comporta 13 miles of beach is something else. There are also available a couple of bikes and a tandem which we used to ride some of the flatter roads. It was a memorable stay.

Peace, privacy and countryside

5 of 5
We are frequent travellers, and this is one of the best getaways we have ever found in Europe. Apart from the amazing natural surroundings, our overall impression was one of perfect privacy, great service and a house one feels is much loved . Rooms are spacious, the marble dining table has amazing views over the serene Alentejo plains, and the swimming pool is the best ever for a relaxing afternoon with friends/family. With our rented car (at Lisbon airport) we explored Evora, Alcacer do Sal, Estremoz and the Comporta beach. Great location between the sea and the countryside. Great smart shopping in laid-back and international Comporta and fresh sea food everywhere. Tranquillity and good taste. Definitely to come back again.
