Tia Luisa was perfect for us: quiet, well-equipped, convenient and comfortable. From the verandah we loved the view over farmland and from the front of the cottage the local shops and cafe are only a short walk away. As for the local area, we visited beautiful Evora, Monsaraz, and Beja, and swam in the lake near Mourao. We'd already been on holiday for a few days when we arrived but this is where we really began to relax. Thanks Joao.
We spent a week touring Portugal, moving between hotels, and then a week based here - good blend. The house is lovely, and something of a Tardis - much bigger inside than you imagine from outside. It was totally clean, comfortable and well equipped - we loved it. We were lucky with the January weather so enjoyed the upper terrace and our only advice would be to trim the cactus outside the courtyard so as to allow the view from the patio.
The village is not at all touristy or posh, but we found it interesting to experience. The surrounding area is extremely well farmed. We alternated days driving out to lovely places like Evora, Monsaraz and the Megaliths; and days just "chilling" at the house, with the log fire in evenings.
