Four of us and a dog have just spent a fortnight relaxing in this lovely house, full of charm. The pool was a good size and the water perfect ( the pool was maintained very discreetly- the man must have made visits about 6am!). The kitchen was extremely well-equipped, the TV worked well and had news channels in both Portuguese and English, the bathrooms were both lovely and the beds comfortable. My favourite spot was however under the vines, in one of the two hammocks, keeping cool on those hot, Alentejo afternoons. Every morning my friend and I went walking through the cork forests surrounding the pretty village of São Lourenço and would then stop for a coffee in the cafe just 200 metres or so from the house. We also ate here twice and the food was excellent. Much better than we would have imagined. The locals were friendly and helpful and the town of Estremoz only 5k away. I have no hesitations in recommending this holiday home. You will love it.
We only had two nights, I wish it would have been much longer. We stayed in late September. The weather was still warm mid day, cool in the mornings. Perfect for a dip in the infinity edge pool in the heat of the day.
We went to a delicious very local restaurant, there are a number of options close by. The kitchen was well equipped and we ate in our first night not knowing there were places to go close by to eat. Redondo has a large and a small grocery store, both about ten minutes drive.
The farm house is delightful. Generations of wonderful books in English. A fireplace, AC and beautiful furniture. You are definitely staying in a family house. The bed we slept in was very hard, this may be a good thing or not depending on your preference. This is the only thing I would change.
Joseph took us on an informative, exciting and comprehensive tour of the property. Recommended.
Thank you Philip for a wonderful stay.
