“Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed 29 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Beautiful, authentic portuguese cottage. Tranquil yet close enough to amenities, great base for exploring historic towns and sites. Susana and Alberto are warm and so welcoming. Susana should open a restaurant, the meals were first class. Arrived home yesterday and already we are sorting out dates for our next visit, a very big thank you to them for a wonderful holiday. Excellent value.

“Peaceful country cottage in beautiful countryside with wonderful meals provided”

Monte Varandes is a newly decorated and spotlessly clean little cottage situated on the owners' organic farm in Sao Mamede natural park. The location is peaceful and tranquil - most of the time only the distant tinkle of goats' bells can be heard - and the countryside is very beautiful. It is well situated for those who want to visit Marvao, the National Stud Farm of Lusitano horses at Alter Real, Castelo Branco, Castelo De Vide, the river swimming pool at Portagem etc and it is close to the Spanish border. Susannah and her husband were very warm, welcoming and helpful and the meals Susannah cooked for us each night were absolutely delicious - her breakfasts and evening meals are highly recommended.
