We very much appreciated our time staying at this house which is located in the heart of the Alentejo region but still at a reasonable driving distance from Lisbon. Both the owner and the person that came to greet us were very friendly and available. The approach to the house is made through a beautiful plantation of olive trees and the house itself is a good size with a large terrace and garden with wonderful views to the nearby marble producing town of Borba. The house is very well equipped, there was literally everything we needed. As we were a bit unlucky with the weather, we greatly enjoyed playing the board games provided and the warm fire. All in all a very relaxing weekend and we very much look forward to returning.
We truly loved our stay in this wonderful and authentic Alentejo monte.... wonderful gardens full of fruit laden trees and views of Borba and the Alentejo plains. Lovely kitchen, rooms and veranda where you can just sit and contemplate your beautiful surroundings. Highly recommended!
A beautiful house, and the loveliest view of Borba from the terrace. A great base from which to explore the Alentejo.
A Charming well appointed house with great views and rural location. Pick a lemon off the tree for your Gin and Tonic. Easy drive to the town and can be walked in about 20 minutes. Garden is still under renovation but will be fabulous when complete.
Located in Borba, a very typical village of Alentejo, this is the perfect place to enjoy nature in peace and comfort while at the same time you can find the friendliness and hospitality of its inhabitants as well as the gastronomy, the wines and the culture. I'll visit again.
