Log cabin | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
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.
Cabana Pinheiro a log cabin is situated on one of the highest points of the estate and gives you a spectacular view of the entire valley and the Serra do Cercal. In the cones of the Pinheiro are the delicious pine nuts. It is suited for two plus two, has a living with kitchen corner and a sofa bed, a bedroom and sanitary room with a washbasin and toilet. If you like to take a shower you can use the outside shower with hot and cold water. The cabin has its own garden with various terraces, and is situated at some distance from the other facilities, and as a result of that, offers a great deal of privacy. Cooling can be found in the pool or by the beach and the sea.
