Toby and Cher are great hosts and provide first class accommodation with everything you'd expect - and more - even the kitchen knives are sharp, a rarity!
Lovely, colourful garden and high end furnishings make this a very comfortable place to stay. About 20/25 minutes to the coast which is glorious.
I shall remember lying in the hammock with a cold beer for a long time
The photos are truthful to what you'll find, but you'll have to be there to feel the amazing atmosphere of the place. We rarely return to the same accommodation, but for Sernadinha we had to open an exception. It's like a home away from home. Toby and Cher saved no efforts in trying to meet our needs and making us feel welcomed.
After already having spent one fantastic week at this beautiful place in December, we returned to the Casa Pequena for another week in early May. Toby and Cher recommended this time of year to witness the blossoming plants and let's just say: This is paradise!
The house was immaculate, everything you could faintly think of was taken care of. We barbequed, enjoyed the hammock, beach bag and umbrella. We went for walks in the estate and swimming in the sea.
Mid-way into our stay, our sheets and towels were changed, making our stay even more luxurious. Toby and Cher are the perfect hosts and it was so nice to see them again! They are very responsive, easy going and informative. We recommend this peaceful place to everyone looking for a relaxing break of city life. Would love to be back and do it all again some time...
Wanting to have a retreat in a quiet setting but close to the beautiful Alentejo coastline and local towns and villages? then this is the place for you. Fantastic views from the property, you can just relax on site or explore the area. Facilities are of an excellent standard with every attention to detail. Welcomed by the owner we had all the information and advice we needed. A lovely holiday.
The place Toby and his wife have created is pretty amazing. We had a lovely time staying in la casa pequena. It’s beautifully furnished, the kitchen has really all you need and it’s a delight to have breakfast, a glass of wine in the afternoon or diner on the terrace. Definitely take time to enjoy a bath with a view on the sunset above the valley, sleep in on the damn good matrass in freshly ironed sheets, take a walk in the soothing surroundings, drive to one of the great beaches close by… Being here in springtime must be the perfect time of year with the nature blossoming at it's best.
Toby is the perfect host, got us the directions and tips to get the most out of your stay well in advance and the house was impeccable when we arrived and we felt very welcome. It’s a little private cocoon in a beautiful area for a getaway. Thank you very much, I hope to be back one day!
Incredibly peaceful. The pictures really do the place justice, the bath is amazing! Toby and Cher are wonderfully friendly and accomodating. We stayed with our eighteen month old daughter and they even had a baby towel ready for us, the little touches matter.
Sernadinha is an amazing an magical place. It was our second time there, first time in "Casa Pequena". When you think it can't get any better, we were absolutly overwhelmed by all the details, the quality, the quiet... Toby and Cher are amazing hosts and we are fans of all this magic... It is ideal to rest, recharge your batteries and enjoy all the nature of the country side. We hope to come back very soon..again and again and again... :)
