Overview

About the property

In the countryside, silent place, with panoramic views, 15 km from the beaches

There is a second house on the same property, but at 200 m. distance. Both houses were built taking into account the privacy of each. The pond and swimming pool are available for the to the 2 houses.

The house is beautifully decorated. There is a terrace in the shade and in the sun. The region stayed authentic, clean and welcoming. Portugal, especially the Alentejo, little known and not yet overrun by tourists has much to offer: the beauty of the landscape and its rural architecture, the friendliness of its people and its high quality of life.

About Mark Van den Dries

It is our favorite place and we like to share our paradise!

Mark Van den Dries purchased this house in 1996

Why Mark Van den Dries chose São Teotónio

The house has a wide view on the area of 13 ha. The hilly landscape with cork oaks and the pond remained authentic and we ensure its preservation.

The cottage is built acording to regional architectural traditions : the 'Casa em Taipa' is an earthen clay construction

Our respect for nature is also reflected by planting reeds to filter waste water.

What makes this house unique

You will enjoy the silence and the splendor of the night sky as there is no ambiant light to spoil the view of the constelations.

The large pond is completed with a terrace, a pontoon and a beautiful integrated swimming pool. Thanks to it, we have already had remarkable visits: turtles, fish, frogs, dragonflies, large variety of birds (herons, cormorants ...)

The swimming pool allows you to swim in soft and clean water.

A lovely holiday home

  • 4 of 5

The house is comfortable and well equipt. If you are looking for a quiet place to relax, away from the pace of modern life, you will like Casa em Taipa. The natural pool, shared with the other house, is beautiful for a swim. You will need a car, but that is the attraction, in that it is very quiet, but only 10 mins to a nice town with most amenities. We recommend this house for a holiday, and would like to return again.

Tolles Haus auf dem Land!

  • 5 of 5

Sehr ruhig gelegen, angenehm eingerichtet, großes Grundstück, tolle Natur, alles da was man braucht. Ideal zum entspannen.

Der Kontakt zum Vermieter war toll. Freundlich und klar.

In 10-15 min ist man im nächsten Städtchen und 5 min später am Meer. Herrlich!

Great place, amazing location

  • 5 of 5

It is a great location, isolated, peaceful. The house itself is very good, 3 good rooms, kitchen +living are of very good size.

The porch outside is amazing for family meals.

The cherry on top of cake is the pool near the lagoon.

We recommend this place to anyone who likes open air and to be near nature.

Paraíso escondido...

  • 4 of 5

A casa em taipa é de construção recente, limpa e confortável.

A piscina ecológica e é um espaço paradisíaco, único e muito relaxante.

A localização é de um espaço isolado mas relativamente perto das fantásticas praias da costa vicentina. Um mimo, gostamos muito.

Une découverte au-delà de nos attentes

  • 5 of 5

Mon épouse et moi recherchions avant tout un endroit calme en pleine nature, où nous pourrions à la fois nous oxygéner, nous détendre, nous promener sans devoir faire des km en voiture, et aussi trouver la concentration nécessaire à un travail plus intellectuel. Nous avons trouvé un lieu répondant parfaitement à toutes ces attentes, au milieu d'une nature sauvage, d'un espace ouvert avec des levers de soleil fabuleux. A 10' en voiture, les superbes plages de sable et les rochers de la côte Atlantique, spectacle dont nous ne nous sommes jamais lassés. Taper Zambujeira do mar dans votre moteur de recherche et faites-vous votre propre idée.... Sans oublier les petits restos de cette station où nous avions pris nos habitudes, séduits à la fois par l'accueil et … la connection Internet. L'accueil de Mark et Anne, les propriétaires de notre location a aussi contribué à rendre ce séjour inoubliable. A mentionner aussi:les soirées au coin du feu de bois … Nous sommes partis à regret.
