You can go to your market on Wednesday Rosal de la Frontera. well we eat at the restaurant under the arches of the town square.

To do your shopping, you can also go to Vila Nova de San Bento (20 minutes from the house) where you will find a mini-market for all current products, but also meat directly from black pig breeders and local cattle. The price is very attractive: between 4 and 7 euros per kilo: barbecues in perspective!

Otherwise in Serpa: half an hour, you will find 2 supermarkets.

Enjoy a break on the way to the village church: its peculiarity is to be cross: this is one of four churches in cross throughout Portugal.

That is why only the lovers of peace and nature will find their account. For others, Portugal will offer you all the luxury you long (more than 23 000 locations on this website).

During the 2015/2016 season we performed construction arrivals of electricity and water, and a well appreciated pool of more than 40 ° in summer!

For the winter, we have just installed a wood stove in the fireplace where you can see crackling logs 60cm.

If you want to realize the exceptional location of this house, go with Google Earth coordinates: 37 ° 53'17 N, 7 ° 18 'W.

Some ballad ideas:

 

The nature here is Andalusian! Cork oaks, olive trees, of course, but for wine lovers: we are on the Alentejo Wine Route! Go towards Moura, then take "Barajem Alqueva" and go to visit Monsaraz. On the church square on the left, a tasting shop (some jewelry to bring back for the evening barbecue, for example).

Several day tours are possible: Alqueva Dam is the largest artificial lake in Europe with 110 km of beach and lake 250km². Several activities are available such as sailing, water skiing, fishing, boat rentals and swimming (here is the link: PPhttp.. Roteirodoalqueva // www com / barragem-do-alqueva).

A must visit EVORA, MONSARAZ, MOURAO, SERPA, MOURA, MERTOLA and why not cross the border and go to CORDOBA, SEVILLA.

Lisbon is 3 hours with its giant aquarium, take the cable car overlooking the Park of Nations, visit the castle of St. Georges, museums, etc ...

The ocean south is 1h30 car with its vast beaches.

You can also spend a day on the river Guadiana. Book your tickets in advance. Here is some info: "Surf the Guadiana River, a natural border between Portugal and Spain. Along the way enjoy the natural beauty of the river and picturesque villages. Disembark in Foz de Odeleite for a walk through the village (optional) and visit the small cheese "Ti Rita." At "Quinta do Rio" local unique beauty of its kind, with views of the river and the village, where after a refreshing swim will be served a delicious BBQ accompanied by natural products and herbs, wine red and white of the region. Live music during the meal, creates a lively and cheerful atmosphere.

Muito bom.

  • 4 of 5

Sítio excelente para fugir de tudo e todos. Só se ouve o vento, os pássaros e ao longe o som do badalo das ovelhas. Sem vizinhos até onde a vista alcança. Casa grande, confortável, com todas as comodidades. Piscina excelente.

Danke

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus befindet sich in einer ruhigen Lage, d.h. man sieht keine Nachbarn (und hört niemand). Ganz abgelegen in einer mit Ölivenbäumen bestandenen Landschaft liegt es. Das bedeutet, dass man ein Auto braucht, sonst kommt man nicht hin und kann auch nicht zum Einkaufen fahren. Es gibt gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in Serpa (ca 30 Km). Man sollte viel zu Lesen mitbringen, Sonnencreme und Mückenspray (manchmal nötig). Wir hatten wunderbares Wetter, d.h. kein Regen, blauer Himmel und 30 Grad (oder mehr). Da war der Swimmingpool toll. Man kocht allein und kann machen, was man möchte: etwas wandern, lesen, schlafen,... Es waren zwei schöne Wochen. Übrigens das Handy geht und darüber auch Email-Empfang u.a.

Férias de descanso perfeitas

  • 5 of 5

Reservámos a propriedade 4 noites, 2 casais Lisboetas à procura de descanso e foi isso exactamente que obtivemos.

A propriedade é extremamente isolada, talvez não ideal para quem pretenda passear mas, no nosso caso, perfeita para contrastar com os destinos mais turísticos.

A metereologia também ajudou a disfrutar da magnífica piscina, fizemos grelhados todas as noites e vimos o céu mais estrelado que as nossas memórias se recordam.

Recomendamos vivamente!

Owner's Response: Merci pour votre appréciation qui nous comble de bonheur car vous avez su apprécier ce que nous aimons par-dessus tout : le calme, la nature. La chaleur en été est une évidence ici en Alentejo. Revenez au printemps et vous pourrez apprécier les fleurs dans les champs qui nous rappellent les magnifiques tableaux de Cézanne en Provence ! Les portugais sont vraiment des gens de cœur, et nous transmettrons votre message à Fabio et à sa femme Maria-Joao, qui nous en sommes certains, seront ravis comme nous de votre ressenti. Nous serions très heureux de vous accueillir de nouveau chez nous lors d'un de vos prochains périples au Portugal ! Bien cordialement. Martine et Jorge
