Stunning views of the city and its countryside, including the church and the historic area, make the terrace a must-play in which to enjoy the end of the day and a drink!

Asset +: spacious, bright and quiet where you can easily spend the day without feeling to have remained locked and without feeling on top of each other.

Asset -: stairs (for those who do not like it!). The kitchen is not very big and is not a modern fitted kitchen.

The house is very nice and functional. Its location in the middle of historic area contributes to the charm and serenity that exudes. (Limited cars passing).

It is the ideal starting point for a ride to the church and castle or even on the ride to tour the 'hill' and the old town.

At the same, city access (coffee, market, garden, museum) is easy and straightforward. Everything can be done on foot!

The car is still essential to get to the ruins, supermarket / hypermarket and beaches.

Being based in Santiago offers a wide choice of destinations because the city is located halfway between the capital and the Algarve.

It is perfectly possible to go and return to Lisbon in the same day (1:30 by expressway and highway), and to go to Algarve (Albufeira, Faro), it takes about 2h00.

The coast is 15 minutes (dune beaches) and offers a range of possibilities and discoveries in terms of beaches.

In the other direction, toward Sines, you can enjoy the beach of São Torpes (surf) before discovering creeks cut into the rock leading to Porto Covo (tourist village of fishermen). Further, Vila Nova de Milfontes, offering sea and lake and wild and vast beaches of the Costa Vicentina Zambujeira do Mar Odeceixe, Aljezur, etc ...

And finally the Algarve for the adventurous and nostalgic walkabouts!

transcendant !

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully situated in the old town of Santiago, this house is a must-have for all those who want to enjoy their holiday between Alentejo Litoral and Baixo Alentejo.

The house has a charisma which is rare. It is a treasure, which you would like to remember and always come back.

Whether it's the patio with the grape-vine or the loving interior - you’’ll be happy to return after a day at the beach or the scorching hot outback.

very nice and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a wondeful week there. The local guy handing over the house was very helpful. With the owner the communication was easy and competent.

The house is very well located in the center of Santiago do Cacem with good views over the city and uphill. All can be managed by foot. Car parking though wasn´t a problem either. A roof top terrace and a garden patio with grill are highlights as well. We cann highly recommend it to stay there.

maison typique très agréable, région magnifique!

  • 5 of 5

"Maison très agréable, nous y étions en famille avec des enfants en bas âge, tout le monde a trouvé son rythme dans cet environnement très reposant.

L'Alentejo est une région très variée et riche de visites qui sortent des sentiers battus.

La ville de Santiago est très agréable, il y a de nombreux commerces et beaucoup de départs de balades.

La mer n'est pas loin également, avec une cote splendide aux dernières heures de la journée.

Notre hôte Vanessa, est très prévenante du début à la fin, ce qui est très appréciable lorsqu'on doit faire 1600 km pour se rendre sur un lieu de vacances.

Location à conseiller vivement! »

Maison typique très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Le quartier est très calme et les commerces sont proches. C'est une maison très agréable à vivre, le patio appelle au farniente. Les chambres sont spacieuses, nos filles ont beaucoup apprécié le grenier aménagé qui offre un espace conséquent donnant sur la terrasse (vue magnifique sur tout le village). La maison reste fraîche toute la journée.

Vanessa, la propriétaire, est vraiment sympathique et à l'écoute, elle nous a fourni un tas d'informations très utiles sur la région. Sur place, nous avons été chaleureusement accueillis par Andréi, toujours présent en cas de nécessité.

Nous conseillons vivement cette location.
