rust ruimte en warme ontvangst

  • 5 of 5

mooi schoon koel & leuk ingericht huis ! de eigenaren runnen het kleine hotel ernaast, waar je heerlijk kunt eten ( wij hebben het 1x geprobeerd en vanaf toen, elke dag!!). Daar is ook een mooie tuin , het zwembad en wifi. Huis heeft boeken en spelletjes. Wij hebben genoten van de rust, gewandeld en naar het strand geweest, fantastisch! Heel fijn dat je voor al je vragen bij nuno en christine terecht kunt.Heel rustig, behalve dan de ezel die graag balkt!! huis heeft alles, alleen geen wasmachine, maar de was kun je laten doen. Je zit lekker prive, maar als je wilt kun je gezelschap opzoeken.Binnen een half uur ben je op hele mooie stranden, veel keuze.Een echte aanrader!

Beautifully situated on the Alentejo countryside between the cork oaks and olive trees in a quiet hamlet.

Beautiful area to walk and relax. A braying donkey, sheep bleating and chirping birds are your neighbors. Good to combine with a beach holiday, the beaches are at 20 km. Ranging from small coves to vast sandy beaches. Wonderful for surfing, sunbathing, or walking.

In the nearest village Cercal you can do all your shopping, and also buy some local products including local farmer for handmade leather boots and bags, or the potter for the Alentejo pottery.

And at the pastelaria you can eat the most delicious pastries and cafe with a cool draft beer Ideal with a tasty "Bifana.

Vila Nova de Milfontes Porto Covo and Zambujeira do Mar is the nearest beach resorts for beach fun and include various (fish) restaurants.
