Monte Azul

  • 5 of 5

O "Monte Azul" é um sitio de calma e sossego no Alto Alentejo, optimo para passar uns dias de descanso. O silêncio, e somente os sons da natureza, com as paisagens alentejanas de fundo, muito lindo! A casa tem optimas condições! A piscina, barbecue, perto da casa, rodeados por relvado, e o terreno á volta tratado, limpo, e vedado (para segurança do meu patudo tambem).

O meu patudo tambem adorou! Correu pela relva os dias todos.

Gostamos muito, certamente voltaremos!

Sternschnuppen inclusive

  • 5 of 5

Wir (Familie mit 3 Kindern, 5,8,11J.) verbrachten 3 Wochen mitten in der Natur (Korkeichen, Olivenbäume, Bauernlandschaft), Anfahrt ohne Asphalt und Beschilderung, dafür total privat (das Angebot der Vermieter vor uns her zu fahren schlugen wir dank eines Navigationsgerätes großzügig aus und sind natürlich erstmal in der Pampa gelandet, weil bei den GPS-Koordinaten vertippt, arghhh...)! Großer Garten, 5x10m Pool (leicht gesalzen), drumherum Wiese, Felder, Kühe, reichlich Ameisen, selten mal ein Auto. Morgens zu Fuß Brötchen holen Fehlanzeige, aber nachts Sternschnuppen gucken (auch dank der Leoniden zu dieser Zeit) kein Problem :-) Das Haus großzügig, mit allem ausgestattet was man zum Leben braucht, incl. Klimaanlage in Wohn- und Schlafzimmern, WiFi/ Internet/ Möglichkeit zum Drucken, Mückennetze haben wir mitgebracht. Kleines Poolhäuschen mit Aussenküche und BBC, sowie Wasseranschluss. Nächste "richtige" Einkaufsmöglichkeit ca. 15km entfernt, wenn man also auf dem Rückweg von Strand (20km) oder Ausflug den Einkauf einplant kein Problem. Aber Privatsphäre sollte man mögen sonst ist man hier einsam. Wir fanden es toll! Tagesausflüge nach Lissabon (Sintra sollte man gesehen haben) und in die Algarve, sowie ins Landesinnere (Beja, schön aber heiss!) gut möglich. Wir haben unser Auto bei den Vermietern incl. ViaVerde, dem dortigen Mautsystem, gemietet, auch das hat tadellos geklappt.

Americo und Ana waren jederzeit ansprech(mail)bar!

Eu e a minha esposa ficámos hospedados no Monte Azul, durante um Fim de Semana prolongado, e não podia ter sido melhor. A sua localização, completamente isolado, no meio da natureza, permitiu-nos descansar e desfrutar plenamente da piscina, que por sinal é de água salgada (sem aquele cheiro a cloro). Não se ouve qualquer ruído a não ser os da natureza, o que é muito bom. A casa em si é ampla, havendo espaço para toda a gente estar à vontade. Uma particularidade, que nos agradou foi o facto de que, apesar de estarmos isolados, termos contacto com o "mundo exterior", através do serviço de Internet existente. Além disto tudo, ainda fomos até à praia, a Milfontes, que fica a uns 25 minutos de carro.

Em suma, de certeza que voltarei ao Monte Azul, com mais pessoas, para que conheçam esta verdadeira pérola do Alentejo.

O céu mais lindo que vi até hoje .....

  • 5 of 5

Com o decorrer da viagem e com as aventuras, só se adivinhava que ia ser um fim de semana em grande ..... e foi!!!!! Amei todos os espaços, a gente alentejana, o Café do Sr. Paulo, a D. Filomena, enfim tudo e todos. As condiçoes da casa são excelentes, tudo aquilo que possam pensar que faz falta, está lá e por fim a noite alentejana, o céu iluminado pelas imensas estrelas .... nunca visto, lindooooo!!! Vamos voltar, tenho a certeza!

Paraiso Alentejano!

  • 5 of 5

Um paraiso escondido no meio do Alentejo, com o ceú mais lindo do mundo. Eramos 5 pessoas com 2 filhos caninos, que adoraram o espaço, o sossego, o silêncio, a casa, a decoração e a piscina. Obrigada Monte Azul e à D. Filomena. Verdadeiramente um dos melhores fins de semana de sempre. Experiência a repetir em breve.
