The small one bedroom house was perfect, the first impression with the gravel roads is daunting, but with each day, we loved it more and more, silent, next to really charming nearby places and beaches, but what sells it is the almost perfect nature surroundings of the actual house. Perfect for relaxing with a good wine, a book, go for a swim in the pool. It's like meditation without the actual meditation. You just fell at peace. Like I said the first impression might not be the best, but you will never want to leave. The houses are charming, have everything you actually need, not what you might want. The TV was a shock. Small with few channels, bit by the end of the stay you really don't even care about "the outside world", you are so immersed in beauty, nature and peace. Really an experience I would recommend to anyone that it's stressed with the daily life. Even if you don't realize it. I want to live in a place like that, and I think the very welcoming owners (that brought fresh homemade bread everyday) felt the same and wanted to give that experience to others. They fell in love and stayed, you will too. Alentejo is beautiful lots of stuff to discover, little treasures everywhere, a beautiful sky, beautiful Earth. It's beach vacation, or country vacation or both. People are friendly, and the food is amazing.
But that little house with our little porch will forever be remembered. Loved all of it. Will return for sure, when I have to unwind and be at peace.
I have stayed at your house from June 10th to the 17th.
The house is well located, having the beach almost on your door step is simply amazing. We spent most of our time on the beach but really look forward to dinner time when we could enjoy local cuisine beautifully prepared fresh fish.
The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed, it was impeccably clean with beautiful gardens and very close to the local village Melides, where we found a supermarket, pharmacy and nice cafes and restaurants, as well as a little white church.
All the family thank you for the lovely holiday, we will definitely be back.
