Description

Typical Alentejo's cottage nestled in a 40 acre organic farm, surronded by ancient cork oak trees. The cottage sits within the National park of Serra de São Mamede, surrounded by peace and quiet. Aside from the rarely used access road, this is a traffic-free zone! 5 km away is the charming little village of Esperança, and 8km is the slightly larger, but still wonderfully quaint Arronches.This is a forgotten corner of Portugal and feels like stepping back in time. For those that want some culture, the beautiful hilltop village of Marvão is 30km away, as is the craft-centre Castelo de Vide. All modern amenities (supermarkets etc) are available 20 km away, in Portalegre.The cottage/farm's owners are a young Portuguese-Italian couple and they provide a warm welcome to this magical resting place for your holidays. There's a great natural river swimming pool just 8 km away.The accommodation sleeps two comfortably, plus another two in the living room's bed-sofa. There is

“A hidden gem!”

Reviewed 13 Jan 2014

We loved every thing about Monte Varandas! The house, the location, the the comfort, the owners, the food!, etc, etc. We definitely want to return. And probably will! We highly recommend trying the food.

Obrigado, sr. Francisco tambem para me ter arranjado o esquentador....
