Enchanting, unique place in Portugal's cork country
Stayed one night with our young girls in this marvelous place in the hills outside Evora and can't say enough good things about the stay. Our hosts were helpful and responsive at every turn, and the setting of this picturesque farm can't be captured in words. Dining on the terrace as the sun set over cork trees and we looked out over the valley was magical. And although we only were able to stay for one night, it was among the most memorable of the our two-week stay in Portugal. Will most certainly come back when next in the country.
Beautiful spot, great for kids
We are a family of five and really enjoyed our stay here. The kids loved hiking around the property, swimming in the pool and checking out the surrounding towns. The host had great food recommendations at nearby towns!
A wonderful part of the country that we would absolutely visit again.
A relaxing stay in a beautiful place
My wife and I had a lovely week staying at Til’s Cottage. It is very well appointed, with excellent facilities, WiFi, privacy and comfort. The kitchen is compact but well equipped. And we cooked there most nights
The estate is beautiful and the tour of the cork forest from José was fascinating and is well worth doing. Walking in the forest, accompanied by the dogs, was a treat. I saw many bird species and I imagine that in spring this would be even more impressive.
The pool was beautiful and felt private, even with other guests in the main house, and had plenty of loungers and sunshades.
Communication was excellent and the owner, Phillip, even called me to let me know that he wouldn’t be able to meet us in person, which was very courteous. The staff were all very friendly and it was a pleasure to talk to them.
Overall, this was a fantastic place to stay and I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family, and would love to return.
Other Activities: Bird watching, walks, vinicultural tours, visits to places of cultural and historic interest.
