Great house and great host

  • 5 of 5

We had a beautiful and quiet stay at Evelyn's place. The house is located in a bucolic area where you can find peace and nature at its best. However, it's also well located in relation to the main spots in Alentejo cost: beaches and towns. The house is exactly as in the pictures and Evelyn is a great host, she helps you in anything you need, and the house is fully equipped with all the basics for a nice stay. We definetely recommend it and we would love to repeat it!

Schönes gemütliches Ferienhaus mitten in der Natur

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus ist perfekt ausgestattet und bietet viel Platz. Es gibt ein schönes helles Schlafzímmer oben im Haus mit Zugang zu einer Terasse auf der man abends sehr gemütlich sitzen kann. Das Badezimmer ist geräumig und super sauber, wie das gesamte Haus. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet und der offene Wohnbereich mit Esstisch und Sofa ist zum wohlfühlen eingerichtet. Wir sind rundum zufrieden und Evelyn ist eine perfekte Vermieterin. Der Kontakt war von anfang an super freundlich.

Einzigartig - Grandios

  • 5 of 5

Liebe Evelyn, von der Anfrage bis zur Abreise war dieser Urlaub einzigartig - grandios! Deine freundliche, sympathische, hilfsbereite, sowie humorvolle, unaufdringliche Art hat auch dazu beigetragen.

Die Bilder, sowie die Beschreibung können nur einen ersten Eindruck von Evelyn's Anwesen vermitteln. Und es trifft es auf den Punkt.

Die positive Stimmung und die Ruhe die dort im Tal zu finden ist, begleitete uns ab der ersten Urlaubsminute. Ankommen und wohlfühlen!

Das schöne Ferienhaus bietet viel Platz, sehr geschmackvoll und gemütlich eingerichtet. Alles sehr sauber und gepflegt, gut sortiert und bestückt.

Die hochgelegene Terrasse ein Traum. Sie lud unter anderen zu einigen netten Weinabenden ein und zum Frühstück sowieso.

Der Weg zurück in die Zivilisation (nächster Ort - Cercal ca. 5km), portugiesisch Original. Schließlich ist es weit ab vom Massentourismus. Ein Leihwagen muss schon sein.

Der Weg zur Atlantikküste, ca. 30 Min durch die Landschaft des Alentejo, hat uns jedesmal aufs neue begeistert. Sowie auch die Vielzahl der verschiedenen einzigartigen Buchten an der atlantischen Steilküste. Auch dort verspürt man noch keinen Massentourismus.

Sehr vorteilhaft ist auch die zentrale Lage der Unterkunft. Überhaupt kein Problem sind Tagesausflüge ins Inland von Portugal, nach Lissabon oder z. B. auch nach Sagres.

Liebe Evelyn, wir haben Dein kleines Fleckchen Erde auf dieser Welt sehr lieb gewonnen und freuen uns auf ein Wiedersehen.

Liebe Grüße Andrea & Angelika

Très bon séjour!!

  • 5 of 5

Un couple de jeunes ayant passé une très bonne semaine dans ce coin sauvage et très calme.

Evelyn est une personne très agréable et discrète.

On a toutes les commodités dans le village à proximité situé à quelques minutes de la maison avec entre autre un petit supermarché pour les courses.

Les plages sont à une vingtaine de minutes en voiture et je conseille la plage de qui est beaucoup plus belle et moins bondée que celle du village.

Si vous cherchez le calme et le dépaysement tout en étant pas trop loin du littoral alors cette maison est faite pour vous.

Relaxing and welcoming house

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet and surrounded by nature. A cosy and "warm" house where we felt welcome and which is conform to the description. Warm only figuratively, because it remained surprisingly cool during the hottest days!

It is close to the sea (about 20-25 minutes by car). Our and the kids preferred beach was "Praia da llha do Pessegueiro".

The house is well placed to be used as base for day-trips to Lisbon and to Algarve. We visited Lagos and Portimao in one day trip and have done an apart trip Lisbon, but I would recommend 2 days if you see for the first time the capital city.

We also enjoyed a lot the circular hiking routes in the nature in Santa Clara, S. Luis Gardens & Dunes of Almograve, (see circular routes info which can be found on: RotaVicentina.com) Make sure you carry enough water with you in the warm season!

In a nutshell, if you want to avoid the touristic Algarve and enjoy nature and be able to find beaches which are not overcrowded, then Evelyn’s house is a destination I can perfectly recommend!

And Evelyn is a friendly person, combining well discretion with being there to answer our questions and proactively offering support.
