An amazing location if your looking for peace, tranquility and the option of being close to beaches

  • 5 of 5

Driving along the final track to the villa you would be forgiven in thinking you are totally lost.

However as soon as you pull up outside the villa you smile

With gorgeous gardens a beautiful pool and no high rise building, busy roads, pubs or shops making noise you can really escape a busy life.

We had lazy breakfasts, lunch sat on the terrace listening to birds and late suppers under the stars.

I went with 4 20 year olds who had just escaped university life and we all just needed to relax, soak up the sunshine and spend time together, which we did in beautiful surroundings.

With a supermarket just minutes away by car we were able to easily stock up on fresh food.

We traveled around and swam on beautiful beaches all be it in cold sea, we ate in a few of their recommended restaurants but predominantly we spent time together just chilling.

There is a tv there but we did not put it on once, instead spent the evenings outside with lit candles playing games and just catching up on life.

There was wifi but phones and laptops were banned by us after midday unless for music.

The villa itself had plenty of room for 5 adults, two bathrooms insured we never waited for a shower and lots of space to eat and chil.

The men played tennis each evening when it got cooler, far too hot in the set.

We were visited each morning by bunnies and often could see goats and sheep in the distant fields.

If you are looking to get away from mainstream life and relax in beautiful surroundings in the sunshine you really can't go wrong, I wish I could upload photos to show how relaxing it was.

Most definitely return

Relaxing Alentajo style...

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a super week in Malavado, the host was very pleasant and helpful on arrival, house was immaculately clean and comfortable, great facilities and location. Bright, quiet, well equipped (except a broom!) very nice common pool area only shared by the 8 villas in the complex, beautiful natural surroundings, close to Milfontes and Zambujeira and the beaches.

Would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful setting for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location and the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday. Very private with a terrific shared pool and terrace, and plenty of places to enjoy a fine meal only a 5-10 minute drive away. If you love the sun and a place to simply chill out this would be a great choice.

Tranquil and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The villa is spacious, well equipped and clean. It sits on a quiet site of just 8 villas with a large shared pool. There was only one other villa occupied during our stay so the site was quiet and private. The grounds are beautifully kept and full of colour and aroma. The main noise is of local birds and the frogs in a nearby lake.The shops of Odemira are just a 5 min drive away. A local Lidl gives you all your day to day provisions and there are excellent restaurants within 10-20 min drives which the owner has marked on a local map. Local beaches are also marked but we spent most of our time by the pool. A lovely spot for those who don't want the hustle and bustle of a busy resort but also don't want to be too remote. This is a beautiful part of Portugal that most people miss. Highly recommended.
