Great House ideally located in a 3-hectare park in the heart of the Costa Vicentina Natural Park, near Vila Nova de Milfontes with an unparalleled view of the sea and the Rio Mira.
House completely renovated, very quiet and sunny with shaded terraces, one of 80 m2.
Rental 260 m2 (4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms) and the possibility of additional rooms on demand (3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and more) on the lower floor (110 m2).
N. B: the house is rented to only one client at a time (if a customer rents the upper floor, there can be no one at the same time on the lower level)
We had a relaxing week in this very nice house on the Rio Mira. The house is spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. There are large terraces providing sunshine and shade all day with fabulous views over the river and towards Vila Nova de Milfontes. We spent quite a lot of time on the terrace, contemplating life and the view over a coffee or glass of sangria! We were also treated to the most spectacular moon rises, clear views of the Milky Way, passing satellites and and innumerable stars in clear night skies.
The local town of Milfontes is a pleasant Portuguese (ie not overwhelmed by international tourism) seaside town. We liked it. There are plenty of good places to eat and the town beaches are very good. The river is clean. We kayaked with Nature Activities which was fun, easy and safe. Some of the beaches slightly along the coast are excellent, particularly Malhao just to the north of the town.
The house is an easy 2hr drive from Lisbon airport. The owner was very helpful by email before arrival. A list of suggestions for local beaches, restaurants and sight seeing is provided, in French but nothing that an O-level and Google translate can't cope with! He is also the only owner in my experience of villa rental who took the trouble to phone half way through the week to check we were having a good time.
It is very easy to have a wonderful holiday here.
My stay has been great. The house has lovely views, is quiet and has everything. The surroundings are unbeatable, the dream beaches and cliffs are a surprise at low tide. We have also eaten very well thanks to the recommendations of Jean-François. I highly recommend it.
We absolutely adored this house. There is no reason to eat indoors when such gorgeous porches surround the house. The weather was perfect and we took full advantage of dining and lounging outside. Milfontes is a darling town, quiet, charming and friendly.
Jean Francois was responsive and helpful and any small issues we had were resolved right away. The house description was accurate and the house itself was better than expected. We felt safe and peaceful in our home away from home. Many, many thanks!!!
We were overwhelmed by the magnificent 180° degree view from the terrace. This is a very special house where you will feel immediately at home. It has all the charms of stylish Portuguese interior design, is extremely comfortable and soothingly quiet. You will also benefit from a very detailed description of the surroundings from the owner Jean-Francois Molle who, understandably, fell in love as you also will with the stunning Alentejan coast.
Wir haben eine Woche mit 8 Personen (4 Erw. und 4 Teenager) in diesem Haus verbracht. Die Bilder enstprechen der Realität. Das Haus liegt abseits und sehr ruhig mit einem wunderschönen Blick auf den Fluss Mira. Von der Terrasse konnten wir immer die Gezeiten des Flusses miterleben. Wir haben bei wunderschönem Wetter die Ruhe und den Blick bei leckerem Essen richtig genossen. Die Villa ist sehr groß, landestypisch und funktionnel eingerichtet. Der einzige Mangel war der leichte Kellergeruch bei unserer Ankunft und die veralteten Küchenustensilien, die teilweise erneuert werden könnten. Der Geruch verschwand dennoch schnell bei normalen Lüften. Wir wurden sehr herzlich und unkompliziert von Antonio und seiner Familie empfangen und betreut. Auch die Buchungsabwicklung mit Herrn Molle war einwandfrei. Ein Auto ist jedoch erforderlich, um zu den Stränden und zur Markhalle (fantastische Auswahl an frischem Fisch, Fleisch und Obst-Gemüse) zu fahren. In dieser Region verbringen eher die Portugiesen ihren Urlaub. Wer Ruhe, Authentizität und traumhafte Strände und Buchten sucht, ist hier ganz richtig. Der Strand von Malhao ist unglaublich schön und komplett naturbelassen.
Un très bon séjour dans une très belle maison! La situation géographique permet un séjour ressourçant. Un gros coup de coeur pour la vue imprenable sur le fleuve visible depuis l'une des nombreuses terrasses! Parfait!
