Description from owner

Description

Combining traditional architecture with a modern layout, Casa dos Galegos is a private property with two different houses, located in Galegos, in the Alto Alentejo region of Portugal, near the iconic Marvão village and only 2 hours driving from Lisbon. Each house features its own private outdoor swimming pool and a tiled stove.

These old country self-catering cottages, typically North Alentejo, were recovered with simplicity, comfort and sophistication. The cottages have a master bedroom with a large bed and en-suite bathroom. A common area with living room, fireplace, dining area, small kitchen (fridge, microwave, ceramic glass hob) with comfortable sofa bed for 1 or 2 people. Balconies, terrace, garden, barbecue and private pool with natural spring water, treated.

Restaurants with traditional local food and wading pools less than 5 kms / minutes driving. Alentejo bread and cakes baked in a wood oven, every day (except Saturdays), 3 kms / 5 minutes (Porto da Espada). Marvão

Location description from owner

The Alentejo region

Marvao

Amazing Natural Park area with protected species (eagles, vultures, foxes and other wildlife).

Ancient roman lost city of Ammaia (5 minutes driving).

Marvão Castle and village (10 minutes driving).

River Sever with natural and artificial pools.

Unique landscapes.

Similar to Tuscany (according to our Guests :) )

Nice place to make a pause from the city, watch an incredible sky at night, have some nice rest and sun, enjoy nature and quietness and eat a lot of unforgettable and affordable real quality food.

Welcome!

An excellent stay. Daniel the host is charming. The area is very interesting and Marvao is not to be missed. Do not miss also the bar/restaurant that I understand opened about 1 year ago down the hill and a short stroll away. The old town of Galegos is also fantastic. In addition, if you like cats, this is the place for you.

“O VERDADEIRO SIGNIFICADO DE "HOSPITALITY"”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2015

Existem dois tipos de hotelaria no momento. A hotelaria de gestão e a de experiencia. O serviço prestado pelo David é todo o que um verdadeiro amante do bem receber necessita sentir. Muito acolhedor e bem decorada a Casa dos Galegos é a escolha perfeita para passar um tempo em família ou simplesmente sozinho "isto se quer refletir e potenciar a sua motivação"!
