Monte do Vale Porquinhas comprises a valley and several hills, and is situated at the foot of the Serra do Cercal in the West of the Alentejo Baixo district.

It is close to the typically Portuguese seaside town of Vila Nova de Milfontes, where the river Mira flows into the Atlantic Ocean.

Despite a difference in altitude of 75 meters (including a waterfall of 32 meters, which runs dry most of the time) the estate is mainly rolling countryside, and is surrounded by the hills of the serra. The vegetation consists of various species of trees, including many cork oaks, a wealth of herbs and – especially in March and April - a wide variety of wildflowers.

It is an excellent area for guests looking for peace and quiet, hikers and lovers of nature, but mountain bikers, off-road drivers and beach fans will also find everything that they are looking for.

There are plenty of places to enjoy the sun or sit in the shade, for the children there is space enough to play and there is always the swimming pool of course.

On the estate, well over 43 acres, there are three holiday cottages.

To enjoy all this you follow the road, which becomes a gravel path for the last five kilometers, where you may encounter a herd of sheep or a flock of goat. At the end of this road you will be welcomed by the Dutch owners.

Monte Oliveira the east wing of an old restored farmhouse, has been rebuilt into the Oliveira cottage, named after the old olive trees next to the house. It is suited for four to five, features a spacious living of 26 sq.m. with a kitchen corner and wood stove. In addition to that it has two bedrooms and a bathroom with washbasin, shower and toilet. It has two roofed terraces, one of them with a fixed barbecue. From the terraces you will have a view of the valley and the Serra do Cercal. Cooling can be found in the pool or by the beach and the sea.
