Great property on a farm
If you are looking for a quiet getaway on a farm - this is a good one. It is about 5 km. out of Evora situated on part of the owners property. It is a very well maintained cottage with a lot of area to walk if you participate in that activity. When I was there it rained heavily so I can not comment on how good the walks are, but it certainly looked like they could be quite good.
The cottage has a very well stocked (All the utensils you will need), clean kitchen.
It was great to have a very good owner living within a short distance, if we needed something (but we didn't need her) it would have been easy to contact her. And I should add that she was a very friendly owner, very easy to talk to. She answered all our questions about Evora and district.
Due to the massive rain this year, the road into the property is in rather rough shape. But i'm sure that the owner will fix it once the rain stops. Especially, given how well maintained everything else in the property is.
I would definitely stay here again.
A country retreat
Our stay at the quinta was a welcome break in our travels. We enjoyed the trees, the animals and the views. The bicycles were not yet all ready for use (flat tires and maintenance issues), but there are some trails on the property that were a good ride for one of us. It was near town, but outside the busy section.
Dear Leslie , thank you for your staying at the farm. We really liked to meet you.
Regarding the bikes, I’m sorry that you did not tell us anything, the tire wasn’t flat, only empty, and we have 4 more replacement bikes.
Super quiet - very friendly farm stay
The place was a charming farm cottage completely private and lovely and quiet but within a short drive to Evora and all it's sites. You have a 2 bedroom cottage and just up the hill an entire pool and deck in a bucolic setting with cattle, sheep and goats - which are kept away from the house. It was lovely to sit out under the cork oak for morning coffee and breakfast and then a glass of wine at night.
This little farm house was so perfect and so well equpped. Great location and a beautiful private pool all to ourselves! Marta was incredibly welcoming and friendly. She was also really adaptable to the fact that we ended up with a late arrival of 10 pm. She had a bottle of wine and homemade cheese and bread waiting for us. So thoughtful and kind.
Anyone would love the quiet and privacy of this place. Highly recommend.
Fantastic home and host
My wife and I have used Home Away and AirBnB on 16 occasions, during which we have had many very good experiences.
Staying at Marta's cottage though proved to be one of the very best.
We found the cottage as being exactly as it is described and shown on the website and it's location is idyllic.
Marta was a wonderful host. She responded very quickly and helpfully each time we communicate with her and took time to drive us around her sizeable farm - which was wonderful. She also helpfully provided bicycles for us to use (and very good ones!).
Evora and district is a great area to stay in and we would hope to stay with Marta again.
We have no hesitation in recommending Marta and her cottage.
