“A warm welcome from the heart”
Reviewed 8 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Staying at Martinheiras was a romantic adventure.  The drive through farmland and forest over an unsealed road until we reached the homestead 'on top of the world' invoked a sense that we were leaving one world and entering another. We were greeted with such friendliness by hosts Amari and Shivam and the warmth of this welcome continued throughout our 6 week stay. The beds were very comfortable, the rooms fresh, the view panoramic, the swimming pool delightful, the gardens lovely and the meals delicious to itemise just a few of the many details that were so lovingly attended to. Amari and Shivam were always generous with their time and ever helpful to guide our touring. We found Martinheiras to be the perfect sanctuary. You can well see that we very happy with our stay!

“Amazing experience”
Reviewed 8 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Quiet, isolated and completely amazing. Hand made paths this place is worth the drive up the 2.5km road. In this day and age to find something like this is pretty rare. We will go back

“Unique experience”
Reviewed 28 February 2015 for a stay in November 2014

This has to be one of my all time favorite experiences to date. If you are up for blissful isolation with breathtaking views and peace on a different level then this is the place for you. I was so impressed once I got up the 2.5km dirt track road - that In itself was a spectacular feeling. The hosts are amazing individuals with a great sense of charm and uniqueness to them. They embody everything they say and are completely open and caring.

I chose Quarto do Sobreira located at the top of the property - the stars at night were amazing and this room is right next to the gorgeous and well spaced and well equipped communal kitchen. It had a fireplace inside and as I stayed off season, this was enough to keep the room very warm. The owners helped me light the fires in the evening

A delightful and incredible experience I'm telling everyone !

“Amazing & peaceful -I will keep coming back”
Reviewed 9 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I returned a second year in a row, and decided to stay for a longer time as my last years trip was not enough.

It was very relaxing and peaceful weather great, I loved having cocktails by the pool, at the same time I had a little adventure learning how to harvest tomatoes and vegetables.

I was asked to join in for a jam making session which I thoroughly enjoyed with some of the other guests which proved to be fun and hilarious and I made some new friends!

The house was spacious, very clean and well decorated. The little touches which the hosts created were very thoughtful. I was given a lovely bottle of wine, fruits and appetizers as a welcome basket.

The hosts were very gracious invited me for a home cooked meal. They also have regular dinner nights to which you can choose the menus and wines. I had cooking class for Japanese cuisine which was fun and a new experience.

All in all a great experience again!

“Pure escapism”
Reviewed 7 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The two and a half kilometre track takes you from the main road to the property; or to put it another way, the two and half kilometre track takes you from the stresses and routine of your every day life, to endless bliss.
I escaped for just a few days and will definitely go back for another generous serving of peace, tranquility, stunning views, and fabulous hosts.
Amari and Shivam make sure every guest is made to feel welcome, without being intrusive. You can choose to eat at the house, or cater for yourself, I chose to eat with my hosts and was treated to delicious meals made with produce grown at Martinheiras.
If you are deciding whether to visit Martinheiras or not, let me help you..... book now!

“Exceptional!”
Reviewed 13 March 2014 for a stay in September 2013

This place was exceptional. Completely isolated which what was the most spectucular thing about this place. Rolling hills and views that go on and on. No night pollution so the sky had so many stars and night.

We took the Casa do Jardim and the quarto do Patio room as there were several of us. This is a small place so it was intimate for us because there were not so many room which made it feel special. All the rooms and houses were clean, comfortable, and nicely and simply decorated. No TV which was a great thing. Limited internet due to being so nicely set in nature makes the internet tempermental as the owners let you know before you book. But mostly it works fine.

Great hospitality from the owners. The yoga classes were superb! You get one free class but I will tell you you will want to book more, she is an exceptional teacher with some great experience behind her.

it is mainly self catering but they cook lovely meals and beautifully presented. Its like having your own personal chef in many ways.

Its about 40 mins to the coast, but we did not mind that the place was so beautiful you did not feel you wanted to leave. It sits right at the top of the hill after you go up a 2.5km dirt road track. The owners gladly get grocieries for you if you do not feel like going out. They do this everytime they leave asking if you need anything.

I loved the yoga, hammock hill, the meals we ate there, the handmade paths that are made so you can walk on the land. The trees the nature, and the quietness. i really felt I was on vacation! Oh and just 25 mins away is Odemira with some good local food and then of course the coastline is just spectacular!

I highly recommend it!
