Intimate beach-front accommodation in September?

Hi all

panning a trip to Portugal the 2nd week of September and we're looking for somewhere to stay on the Alentejo coast for a few days before heading to Lisbon for the rest of the week.

Ideally we'd like somewhere on the beach or near a beach, intimate and quiet, where we can relax after a tough few months. We like to be outdoors and things like walking, cycling and other activites. We don't mind basic accommodation but on this occasion we'd like something where we can also get a bit spoilt. We don't care about nightlife and entertainment.

We've never been to Portugal so any advice is welcome really.

Many thanks in advance!

In the Alentejo coast there are so many options, but for some you will need a car. Do you have a car or are you relying on public transports? Anyway here's are some links http://www.costaalentejana.com.pt

If you like, have a look at: http://www.montedopapaleguas.com/

1 1/2 km from the beach though but they have bikes.
