perfect house for family holidays

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.
