MONTE BRANCO MONSARAZ
from £53 /night help
Farmhouse | 8 bedrooms | sleeps 26
MONTE BRANCO (monte/farmhouse) is situated on the edge of a little hamlet in the heart of typical Alentejano countryside, with its ancient olive trees, corn and sunflower fields. Peace and tranquility is only interupted by the sound of birds and goat bells. The nearest village Motrinos is 1 km away, a short walk for local shopping, (fresh goats milk cheeses.) The historical World Heritage town of Monsaraz set within its ancient fortified walls high on the hill, is about a 5 minute drive; there are several excellent restaurants, craft shops and a castle dating back to the 11th century. Nearby is the newly formed lake, Alqueva, the biggest in Europe, a natural reserve with fishing and boating
The well-known city of Evora ia a 40 minute drive, and within easy reach are the towns of Vila Viçosa, with the King's Palace, Borba, Estremoz, Elvas and Badajoz in Spain.
MONTE BRANCO consists of four houses,(sleeps 20/26) set around a garden full of palm trees and flowers bordering the lawn; an oasis of green amongst the summer dryness. The spring displays the most spectacular countryside full of colour and wild flowers. The Celeiro varandah and Pool have wonderful panoramic views to Monsaraz, especially at night when the town is all lit up.
