About the property

Monte Barranco da Baía

The 'Monte Barranco da Baía', Rural Tourism cottage, is located in the 'Parque Natural da Costa Vicentina' in southwest Portugal. Visitors can enjoy the tranquility of the place and relax in the swimming pond after a day at the beach or coming back from trekking along the coast, two ways of enjoying Europe´s most preserved coastline.

The two traditional style houses equipped with every comfort are within 2 km of the coastline, in a very quiet rural area with good accesses. Both are equipped with solar water heaters and waste water is treated by phyto- purification before being recycled for irrigation.

In any season, the ecosystem of the swimming pond attract by the beauty of its diverse flora and the opportunity to observe the nature. The total area of the pond is 180 square meters, and 72 square meters are reserved for swimming. The surrounding area is equipped with hammocks in the shadow zone and comfortable bean bags and chairs to sunbathe on the lawn.

Nearby, in a wooded area, refuge of numerous species of birds, runs a small stream.

The Monte Barranco da Baía is also an ideal stopover on the 'Rota Vicentina', the new pedestrian route that passes nearby (see www.rotavicentina.com).

Four miles north, the picturesque village of Odeceixe and to the south the town of Aljezur, built in the foothills of a castle of Moorish origin, invite you to experience the local cuisine.

Muito bom!

É só o melhor sítio para ficar na Costa Vicentina. Com os anfitriões Alexandra e Eric a receberem-nos muito bem. Melhor é impossível! O sítio é encantador e muito bonito. Superou em muito as nossas expectativas. Recomendamos!

Encore un énorme merci pour ce magnifique séjour. Un cadre naturel, accueillant, empreint d'authenticité à l'image des hôtes Alexandra et Eric.

Dès notre arrivée, nous nous sommes sentis comme " chez nous".

La chaleur humaine qui émane de ces lieux est palpable.

Tout est pensé pour assurer un agréable séjour aux hôtes. Pleines de petites attentions et de conseils avisés tant sur le plan culturel que gastronomique...et quel plaisir le pain frais au réveil avec le sourire d’Éric en prime !

Le petit BBQ nous a permis de nous régaler d'un bon poisson grillé acheté au mercado de ROGIL sur les conseils d'Eric...après une jolie promenade au bord du canal...

Idéalement situé pour profiter des charmes alentours , entre mer et campagne, nous en avons pris plein les yeux et c'est la tête pleine de merveilleux souvenirs et le cœur un peu lourd que nous avons dû nous résigner à quitter ce havre de paix.

Nous gardons précieusement cette adresse et je pense déjà à y retourner...

Nous ne saurions que recommander de tout cœur ce lieu à tous les amoureux de la nature, des espaces, aimant partager en toute convivialité….

En plus nous avons pu visiter " en avant-première " le tout dernier logement proposé très bientôt par nos hôtes ....un pur nid douillet niché dans un coin de verdure...

A découvrir absolument

Merci à Alexandra et Eric qui nous ont rendu ces 4 jours inoubliables.

Beautiful, peaceful and idyllic stay

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I could not fault our stay, everything was just perfect. The hosts were delightful and so welcoming, bringing us a fresh loaf each day, driving us to and from the coach station and lending us their bikes for seeing more of the natural park area. The cottage was very well-equipped considering its size and we had the swimming pond, bustling with wildlife, all to ourselves to relax in after a day in the sun. The surrounding area is outstanding and so quiet- we didn't see another person on most of our walks, and there are such a variety of beautiful things to see. Finally, we were able to buy whatever we needed in the little town of Odeceixe about 10km away, which also has a range of wonderful restaurants and a fantastic beach. We would absolutely recommend a stay to anyone considering it!

A charming and comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Eric and Alexandra have a serene place in a small town, located not far from the Rota Vicentina path along the Atlantic coast. My husband and i stayed there for several days, exploring the area, walking, and just enjoying the nature-centric setting. Our hosts were genuinely lovely people, warm, generous, and living a life of harmony with their surroundings. They brought us bread, oranges, honey, jam, eggs...a whole level of generosity that we received nowhere else (and had not expected) in our travel lodgings elsewhere in Portugal.

Lovely & relazing

  • 5 of 5

We (partner & I) had a lovely stay here. We stayed for 3-4 days and didn't want to leave! It's perfect for relaxing, recharging your batteries and exploring surrounding areas and walking. It's in a very rural area, and there is plenty of nature and wildlife around. If you want lots of nightclubs, restaurants, busy beaches etc, this is not the place. It's the opposite. Calm and serene :)

The hosts were amazing. From the beginning, they were responsive to every email enquiry, and speak quite a number of languages between them. They came to pick us up where the bus dropped us off. They were super helpful with information and very friendly. The place (we booked the studio for 2) was small but amazingly it had everything one could need, was beautifully and simply decorated and more. A well-equipped kitchen, outdoor terrace dining table, a small BBQ grill. The items provided for breakfast and cooking were brilliant, home-made jams, etc. They have carefully thought of everything and you can feel the devotion and commitment in the place. They bring fresh bread every morning. When we were there it was orange harvest season and they brought us a huge bowl full of delicious oranges. The place itself is beautiful. The natural pool is great for swimming, watching wildlife, sitting reading a book in the hammoc, and doing nothing..! The place is very clean and well-maintained with a lot of love.

Note: Location-wise, it is in the middle of the sticks, so it's important you check public transport links and how to get back at night if you venture out.. Obviously, this is not an issue if you are driving.

I would definitely recommend this place, and as a matter of fact, I already have to friends :). Hoping to visit again for sure.

Piepklein maar uniek qua ligging en warm onthaal, schitterende, natuurlijke en rustgevende omgeving.

  • 5 of 5

In het huisje met zicht op het organische zwembad heb je alles wat nodig is. Omgeven door prachtige natuur, net buiten het dorp, prima als vertrek plaats voor schitterende wandelingen. Trefwoorden zijn hier : onthaasten, eenheid met de overweldigende natuur. Eric en Alexandra zorgen voor het perfected gevoel van 'weg zijn'.
