About the property

Country house with a huge swimming pool in a cozy and familiar environment

A break! Holidays House is part of the olive fields that surround the beautiful city of Moura. It has pleasant outdoor spaces where the only sounds you hear are the birds and the sheep grazing in the adjacent fields. The two fireplaces with stoves guarantee a pleasant temperature on the coldest days of the year, providing a cozy, familiar and pleasant climate around the fire. A glass of Alentejo red and a traditional snack accompanied with the fantastic Alentejo bread take all our senses to delirium.

The huge swimming pool makes for the delight of young and old on the hottest days of the year. The barbecue allows an incursion in the discovery of flavors of black pigs Alentejo or traditionally Portuguese, grilled sardines, always following with the unique wine from Alentejo. The interiors are simple but comfortable with air conditioning in all bedrooms and living room. It has two heat exchangers in the living room and kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with fridge, freezer, microwave, electric oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher and washing machine, toaster and coffee maker.

Wonderful stay, the pictures don't do the house justice. With 7 of us staying, there was loads of comfortable space both inside and out and we all loved the huge pool. Moura is only 5 mins away by car and has plenty of shops/restaurants and well-stocked supermarkets so catering is easy. The owners are lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. Francisco is very knowledgeable and passionate about the area. He runs and organises trips and activities both on and off Alqueva lake. The lake is huge but quiet in a way you dont often find, so it can feel a bit like your own personal playground! Highly recommend a holiday here - its the whole package.

It was the best holiday property we've ever stayed in

  • 5 of 5

It was spacious, very clean and well equipped. All furniture was good quality and comfortable. The pool was roughly 20 x 10 metres and lovely. The owners are genuinely friendly and could not have been more helpful

The regions tourist facilities are good but not intrusive. It is a rural area so it's not for clubbers. Restaurants tend to offer good quality regional foods at reasonable prices. The huge freshwater lake provides a variety of activities some of which are run by the property owner. Altogether three generations of our family had one of the best holidays of its type that we've ever had

A casa é excelente!

Íamos com uma expectativa alta pelas fotos, mas conseguiu superar a expectativa.

Óptimas áreas e muito bem decorada.

A piscina é excelente e é bastante grande.

A 2 minutos de Moura e de vários espaços comerciais.

Apanhámos um fim de semana em que as temperaturas estavam acima dos 40º C, mas nada que a piscina e o ar condicionado não resolvessem.

Sem duvida, a repetir.

Excelente / Excelent

  • 5 of 5

A casa é muito boa, com pormenores muito simpáticos de algum mobiliário tradicional, uma cozinha bem equipada e recente, um terraço enorme e fechado ideal para as crianças brincarem sem preocupações, e uma piscina enorme com uma prancha. Também tem TV com vários canais, Internet, o que pedir mais? Talvez a simpatia do Sr. Francisco e sua esposa que fizeram questão que nada faltasse nestes dias que por lá passámos! O preço é justo para o que a casa oferece. Recomendo vivamente, aliás já o fiz a colegas de trabalho que tomaram nota para passar uns dias descansados no Alentejo do Alqueva. Obrigado!

The house is very good, with nice details of traditional furniture, a well equipped and recent kitchen, a huge and closed terrace perfect for the kids to play, and a huge pool. It also has cable TV, Internet, what else to ask for? Maybe the friendliness or Mr. Francisco and his wife that made everything to make sure nothing was missing for us! The price is very fair for what the house has to offer. I strongly recommend it, I did it already to some coworkers, they took note for some relaxing days on the Alqueva's Alentejo. Thank you!
