Beautiful House by the River

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a fabulous two week holiday.

The house is very thoughtfully set out and is extremely well equipped, immaculately clean and delightfully furnished, the air-conditioning system is extremely efficient and very quiet.

The gardens are very pretty and the pool is wonderful and maintained to the highest standards.

The views over the river are breathtaking , especially from the balcony area, it is so relaxing both day and evening and provides the perfect shade from the hot sun, the barbecue area is ideal and we used it several times during our stay.

The table tennis, football game and especially the bicycles were a great extra, especially to our teenage boys, who went for long cycle rides.

Nearby Alcoutim is beautiful and the zip wire from Spain to Portugal is very exciting, there are several bars and restaurants and a small supermarket.

As a family, we having been holidaying in different areas of the Eastern Algarve for the last 30 years but this house and this area have captured our hearts. We will be recommending it to our friends and family and we will definitely be returning.

The owner, is extremely helpful, she is very kind and made the whole booking experience very easy and our time there very memorable.

Thank you Rita

Recomendo muito!!

  • 5 of 5

A melhor escapadela fora da cidade, a zona é muito calma, rodeada pela natureza, a vizinhança é amigável, tem uma bela vista para o Guadiana, com Espanha logo do outro lado. Aconselho trazer o pequeno-almoço para o alpendre e comer o óptimo pão que lá vendem. A casa é espaçosa e fresca, e sabe sempre bem dar um mergulho na piscina ao fim do dia. O céu está sempre estrelado e cheguei mesmo a assistir a uma chuva de estrelas deitado na espreguiçadeira. Também para quem gosta de agricultura ou quer experimentar, há sempre alguma coisa a fazer no campo, nem que seja alimentar as galinhas. Seja para relaxar ou para ter uma experiência diferente na natureza, serão sempre umas férias bem passadas.

Excelente estadia em Alamo.

  • 5 of 5

O local tem um esplêndida vista, muito calmo.

A Casa é grande, espaçosa, luminosa, bem cuidada e muito limpa.

Equipamentos muito bons (cozinha, ar condicionados, piscina).

A anfitriã é uma simpatia, a D. Rita. Sempre agradável, atenciosa e solícita.

Foi uma semana bem relaxada a que passamos em Alamo, Alcoutim.

Recomendamos vivamente.

Alberto e família

Great house and experience!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 7 who look for a little piece of quiet heaven to rest during a week... We definitely found that place at Rita's house! As soon as we got there we immediately felt at home... everything is so clean, in the right place and with everything we would need.

We consider the anti-mosquito net on every window an excelente idea! We do not found this very often, but it is definitely a plus fot the house: we are able to have the windows open and the lights on, without having undesired insects moving in. Of course we always have the air conditioning whenever we want...

The pool and the front porch area and their sun loungers are very comfortable, very clean and the loungers in the right number.

Ping pong table, football table and bikes have high quality for a rented house and are a good idea to pass the time.

Finally, but not the least, we have to mention Rita's hospitality... she was always available, treated us as if we were family and gave us a lot of tips... She really is the soul of this house, having all in place and taking care as it was just for her to be at and to use.

Thank you so much Rita for your sympathy and generosity.

We will for sure come back!

Magnifique villa, excellents hôtes

  • 5 of 5

Séjour :15 janv-19 mars 2017. Propriétaires Rita et Miguel hors pair. Magnifique villa, très confortable en hiver (chauffage électrique dans chaque pièce). À l’arrivée, frigo avec ce qu’il fallait pour souper et petit déjeuner et quelques cadeaux de bienvenue.

Quatre excellentes chambres (2 avec salle de bain, 3è salle de bain pour les deux autres chambres). L’espace nous a permis d’inviter amis et famille (Tokyo, Barcelone, Montréal). La villa surplombe la route peu fréquentée allant à Álcoutim à 12 km au nord et au sud vers Vila Real de Santo António (3 supermarchés). Lieu et environs calmes et beaux. Environs d’Álamo, au bord du fleuve Guadiana spécialement intéressants pour les randonneurs. Randonnée juste derrière la maison, boucle 8 km; vers la fin, arrêt obligé à Bar do Rio, le long du Guadiana, Guerreiros do Rio, petite bière, délicieuses crevettes grillées! Quelques autres randonnées : Azinhal ; Odeleite. Éviter Miradouro do Pontal ? Très belle marche, mais parking isolé, vitre voiture brisée.

Les propriétaires possèdent un grand espace agricole en face de la villa. Zé en prend soin. On peut profiter librement des orangers, mandarines et citrons, légumes d’hiver et tomates qui poussent dans la grande serre.

La région immédiate offre plusieurs bons restaurants de cuisine régionale, par exemple à Foz de Odeleite (Arcos do Guadiana, excellente soupe d’anguilles) et Odeleite (O Camponês). Les visites sur la côte ont été une occasion de découvrir restaurants de plus haut standing : Meilleur = Lagar da Mesquita à Fonte da Mesquita (Mesquita Baixa, Sao Bras de Alportel, à env. 70 km): cuisine raffinée et originale; intérieur magnifique ; parking derrière resto. Vous pouvez faire randonnée CAMINHOS E ENCRUZILHADAS DE IR FONTE et aller au resto ensuite. Sur la côte : Polvo & Companhia, à Santa Luzia, poulpe (grillé, tendre, segments de poivrons); Marisqueira Fabrica do Costa, Vila Nova de Cacela : Tamboril de Mariscos (le long Rio Formosa ; promenade par plage jusqu’à Cacela Velha) ; Vista Mar, Tavira (cataplana de mariscos). Ayamonte, en Espagne, par le pont.

En bref, excellent séjour. Très belle région avec beaucoup d’endroits à visiter dans un rayon de 100 km. La villa offre le plus grand confort. Les hôtes font tout pour rendre le séjour agréable.

Um local agradável para se passar umas férias ou mesmo um fim-de-semana. Uma paisagem muito bonita com vista para o Rio Guadiana, local muito calmo e a vizinhança também é simpática.

Para o almoço recomendo uns legumes da estufa, são ótimos!

PS:Está tudo em ordem, desde a manutenção à limpeza.
