Location description from owner

The Alentejo region

This region is one of the most spectacular in Portugal. Unlike the Algarve which is swarmed by tourists, the Alentejo is romantic, peaceful and a world of its own. Where we are - we have close proximity to the coast about 40 mins away, and this particular coastline is one of the most beautiful in the world. Coming to Alentejo is to experience true Portuguese hospitality and charmTo get to the property please use these GPS Co-ordiantes but we recommend you call us for our directions as sometimes the GPS is not as reliable. Usually we email you the directions pease take those directions with you also.37°36'41.86"N 8°30'50.28"W

Odemira

This area is quiet and remote but at the same time, just a car ride away with lots to explore and see. Most of our guests are completely mezmerised with the spectacular views of rolling hills and not a house in site here on our property, and rarely venture much because it is just that beautiful here.If exploring is what you need, we are near the Santa Clara Lake which is just delightful in the summer and close to the town to Odemira if some shopping or sampling of local cuisine is what suits one's fancy. Home made Portuguese Alentejano Bread made in the old way, old ways and traditions are long survived here, a rare opportunity even for Portuguese people living in other parts of Portugal. You can also visit some of the amazing beaches on our coastline which is approximately 40 mins away.

“Top five most relaxing place we've ever been to!”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2013

Writing a review for Martinheiras is a real pleasure. We knew it looked like a nice and remote place to go. We were surprised how amazing ... and very remote it was. If you want to have a real break, look no further. We could have been on a desert island and get the same feeling of peace and quietness. Although the house is very remote, it makes you feel you are in a very unique spot. The garden is very delicate, the swimming pool has the perfect size and the hosts are incredibly friendly... We spent one full week, and only went shopping on the first day. Then we stayed there, relaxing under the sun. We also took our first Yoga class, and even though I was not interested at first, the quality of the cession was so good, that we signed up for another course a couple of days later. All in all, it was unique, relaxing and beautiful.

Thank you so much for this review and sorry for the delay in writing. We loved having you here!

“An idyllic mountain retreat guaranteed to sooth away your stress”

Reviewed 13 May 2013

I have to say I was a little sceptical about heading out to the mountains in the middle of nowhere for a holiday, but my partner wanted to go so off we headed......however upon our arrival the beauty of the place was astounding.....the welcoming owners make you feel immediately relaxed and the log wood fires keep you super cozy on chilly evenings. The whole place is completely Eco friendly with solar heating and electricity and its very own water well. Walking around the grounds or laying by the pool in the day is lovely or the beach is a short drive away....then pass the gorgeous evenings with a glass of vino and gazing out to the milky way with the endless starry night sky.....all in all I loved this little hide away a chilled relax zone with all the comforts of home. We stayed in the one bedroom apartment which is completely self contained and is lovely and private if you want to really hide away. The main house if also delightful and the owners are happy to cook gorgeous meals if you want to be more sociable.
