"Tired, dated & overrun with pigeons"
To sum this house up, it looks like it was once a beautiful house in lovely grounds. The key issue is that 'it was once'. Now it is old, tired, and dated. The general cleanliness is poor, with the bal… More
This is the first year that we have run our Quinta as a holiday home. We admit that there were some teething problems and that the pigeons were a nuisance. When we received an email from Mr Wilson detailing a list of complaints I flew out to Portugal to check their validity. We have now made the balcony pigeon proof and addressed the other issues. However in Mr Wilson's email to me was the following sentence which he has omitted from his review:
'The bedrooms and bathrooms are very nice and in good condition with nice clean linen and towels.'
I would also add that the following two families, one from Belgium and one from England, loved the Quinta and have already rebooked for next year.

Nous remercions les aimables mots. Le « Monte do Alentejo » tout fera pour continuer à assurer un niveau élevé de satisfaction.
Juste une précision concernant le point faible souligné : la maison dispose effectivement de 5 couchages comme annoncé. Le cinquième couchage n'est pas le canapé, mais un lit supplémentaire qui est placé dans la maison si nécessaire. Le canapé est uniquement un canapé.
