“What hospitality?!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2011

What wonderful hospitality in a little Portuguese backwater..... and by that I mean a beautiful, totally uncommercialised, small village in the middle of magical countryside. Our host was charming and sociable - he chatted to us over a superb dinner (that he had personally cooked - really yummy!) about South Africa, his experiences and all the present problems. We then retired and had a wonderful night's sleep in the peace and quiet one finds in the country. Breakfast was exceptional - freshly squeezed orange juice followed by some perfectly cooked pears that I don't think we shall ever forget! The house itself is fantastic - just the right amount of modern touches but with a hint of Africa here and there. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would not hesitate to recommend Casa De Terena to anyone who wants to stay in this particular part of REAL Portugal. Hope we will be able to some time soon :o)

The house itself is utterly lovely and the owner, Stella, has a wonderful eye for decor and has made the interior of the house rather magical and at the same time very welcoming. The room we stayed had a wonderful view of the surrounding lake and mountains far, far away. The bathroom was glorious and everything in the room was spotlessly clean with charming, personal touches you don't get in hotels. The service we experienced went beyond the call of duty thanks to the charm and warmth of our hostesses and from our first afternoon we were made to feel as if we were much more than guests. The breakfasts need a special mention as they were homecooked/squeezed/picked and utterly wonderful. Casa de Terena is slap bang next to a castle, within a lovely peaceful village but within very easy driving distance of the bigger towns and attactions. Fantastic stay - can't praise highly enough.

We stayed 3 fabulous nights at Casa de Terena and it was truly the highlight of our tour of Portugal. It is located off the beaten path in a charming little village seemingly untouched by time. The Casa itself is truly magnificent! With marble stairs originating from Roman ruins, an arched Roman stone ceiling, wood burning fireplaces, and views that will take your breath away. This is a terrific place to explore the beautiful Alentejo region. Without exception, what makes Casa de Terena such an experience are it's wonderful owner (Stella) and her hostess (Hazel). These women love Portugal, and their enthusiasm about the region will ensure that we will get the most out of your stay. They are wonderful hosts who will accommodate your every need and will gladly welcome you with a glass of wine and good conversation. Enough good things can't be said about Casa de Terena...you must experience it for yourself. Enjoy!

The Casa de Terena is incredibly beautifully situated in the charming small town of Terena. We were warmly welcomed with a good Rosé wine and home-meade Tapas, many stories about the area and Portugal in general. Immediately feeling home in this very special place we enjoyed every second in Terena and this house. The big. luxurious breakfast with local products was the perfect ending of our stay. For sure one of the best places to experience the Alentejo. Portugal at its best!

Stella and her friend Hazel were absolutely the best hosts! We thoroughly enjoyed our 6 day stay and all the recommendations they gave us for sightseeing and dining. Every morning we waddled out from the breakfast feast and toured this lovely part of the Alentejo.
Thank you to you both for a wonderful and memorable stay.

This is was the best part of my trip to Portugal. :) Stella was the best host ever and the food was spectacular! The surroundings are amazing and with the old castle next to the the hotel made it all the best :) Everything was just perfect there and I will definitely without a doubt visit again! It is the perfect getaway :)
