Charming Home - Lovely Region - Delightful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our visit at Monte Freixos. The home is located in a small town quite close to Estramoz. We had spent two weeks traveling in other parts of Portugal and coming to the Estramoz area was a wonderful way to relax and truly enjoy the Alentejo region at the end of our stay. The home was beautiful, nicely decorated, comfortable and, very well appointed. It has a private backyard which we used and enjoyed. We shopped at the local market (Estramoz) and cooked every evening. We found the kitchen, BBQ area and dining area to have everything we would need. Elsa and Carlos were terrific hosts. They welcomed us and were always available and offered all the instructions we needed to get acclimated when we arrived. They also gave us additional pointers to vineyards, restaurants and towns to find local pottery (Redondo) and other things. I would return and would definitely recommend Monte Freixos to our friends and family.

Lovely property in a friendly village.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a tranquil and relaxing 4 weeks at this property. It had everything we needed and was beautifully renovated. Elsa answered all our requests promptly and was very kind to help us organise horse riding lessons for our daughter (thank you). Estromez is a delightful town, very picturesque and with lots of great restaurants. Local wines are fabulous and great location for discovering the Alentejo. The local restaurant/café/bar/shop in the village (2 minutes walk from the house) is very good. Lots of supermarkets in Estromez (our favourite was Continente) and the Saturday morning market is essential. We loved this place!

A great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. Very stylish, clean and well equipped. Elsa and Carlos met us when we arrived and showed us round the property, gave us some good restaurant recommendations and made us and our 18 month old son feel very welcome. Enjoyed sitting outside, swimming in the pool, cooking on the bbq and enjoying the excellent local wine. A great place to relax.

Ruhe pur!

  • 4 of 5

Wer es im Urlaub ruhig mag, kommt hier auf seine Kosten. Wir wollten es so. Und so haben wir es genossen, lange am Pool zu liegen, zu lesen und gemeinsam zu kochen. Apropos Kochen - die Küche wie schließlich auch das gesamt Haus sind sehr geschmackvoll eingericht. Lob an die Vermieterin.

Als wir das erste Mal in die Einfahrt fuhren, ahnten wir nicht, dass das von vorne unscheinbar wirkende Haus innen so nett zurecht gemacht ist. Wir schätzten zunehmend die Kleinigkeiten. Die Hängematten, den "Sonnenschirm" aus Weinreben, den Grill. Alle zwei Tage kam früh am Morgen jemand, der den Pool reinigte. Auf Wunsch reinigt zudem jemand nach Wochenfrist das Haus von innen.

In der Umgebung gibt nicht so viel zu "entdecken". Die Schönheit der Region liegt im Detail: Die geschwungenen Hügel hinter dem liebevoll wirkenden Dorf, mit zurückhaltenden und zugleich freundlichen Menschen, die wir auch auf dem Markt des netten, nahegelegenen Städtens Estremz trafen, die Schafherden auf den Feldern. Und dann der Wein. Er ist wirklich exzellent. Eine Rundfahrt zu den Weingütern der Umgebung empfiehlt sich. Wir haben uns zwei Wochen lang wohl gefühlt. Danke Elsa.

Villa bien équipée, confortable et bonne situation au coeur de l'Alentejo

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 6 jours dans cette agréable villa, située à moins de 10 minutes d'Estremoz. Une situation geographique ideale qui permet de rejoindre les principaux points d'intérêt à moins d' une heure de route.

Accueil tres agréable de la part des propriétaires qui prennent le temps de bien expliquer le fonctionnement de la maison et les conseils de visites.

La villa, joliment décorée, est bien équipée, et dispose de toutes les commodités bien utiles pour un sejour de plusieurs jours.

Estadia perfeita

  • 5 of 5

O Monte dos Freixos é um daqueles lugares em que nos sentimos bem acolhidos e em casa. Nota-se que tudo foi pensado com carinho e bom gosto. Tudo impecavelmente limpo e cuidado. Fomos muito bem recebidos e percebia-se a preocupação com o nosso bem estar.

Estar à lareira é o máximo!... e toda a casa é muito ampla e muito gira. Ficou a faltar podermos usufruir da piscina e do espaço exterior, mas como estivemos no inverno isso foi impossível. Fica para a próxima pois de certeza que voltaremos na primavera ou no verão.
