This is a very traditional family home, and when the weather is hot, as it was when we arrived, the cool interior and shaded garden where very welcome. The owner was very considerate to us as it was a last minute booking, having been let down on an original at very short notice. The neighbour next door holds the keys, and was very helpful. My limited Portugese being the only difficulty, (note to self, must try harder). The rooms are spacious and well equiped, parking just outside in the street, and it is a very quiet part of the town.
Viana has its own extra ordinary history, with N S do Ayres a couple of kilometers outside the
town. There is access to Evora, about 40 mins drive, the beautiful fortified boarder towns, various lakes and the coast is about 1hr drive, plus if one wanted to get to Lisbon there is a fast road/ motorway connection. The countryside is amazing, and I would love to return in the spring to see the flowers.
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.
