Superb views in a quiet rural location but still within 10 mins walk of town and its excellent restaurants. A perfect centre for our birdwatching/visiting historic towns holiday. Little Owl, Azure Magpies, Bee-eaters and many others on site, with great views of Bustards, Harriers, Eagles etc in the local area. Michaela was an excellent host, offering helpful advice and information when asked. The facilities were comprehensive, with an extensive welcome hamper, all cleaning materials, towels etc. If you are looking for the real Portugal, away from the tourist beaches this area is the perfect answer.
This was my fourth visit here , the accommodation is of a very high standard, the surroundings are beautiful , it has a lovely pool and sun terrace. It's an easy walk to the local shops and restaurants, the supermarket is also within walking distance , I highly recommend this place , the owners are lovely and make sure you have a comfortable stay, I will most definitely be back .
Just the perfect place to relax and forget about the daily stresses of life! Such a warming welcome, everything possible thought of was provided and anything extra that we needed was solved by a trip to the nearby supermarket. Such comfortable accommodation, perfect friendly hosts, the just perfect quiet getaway. Restaurants and bars very cheap, good food, welcoming and friendly. Wouldn’t hesitate to return at anytime to just chill.
Another wonderful stay at Monte da Quinta, the quality is as good as ever and the hosts Michaela and Nigel extremely welcoming with every little convenience thought of and provided.
Some great trips to the Algarve and Atlantic coast this time including a visit to a pottery and artisan chocolate maker plus a favourite beach restaurant (Choupana) at Vila Nova de Milfontes.
Looking forward to the next visit!
September saw our 5th visit to Monte da Quinta and suffice to say we all had another fantastic time. A perfect combination of relaxation, great hospitality and sunshine. We would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a break away from it all.
Had a long weekend here and thoroughly enjoyed. The accommodation is excellent with amazing attention to detail. The welcome pack was incredibly generous and included their own delicious fresh eggs and home made honey and marmalade. The grounds are lovely with really beautiful planting, a really good sized pool, and plenty of space to explore. The views are far reaching over the Alentejo countryside, but you are still within walking distance of Castro Verde. The hosts are really helpful, and their recommendations of where to eat and shop were perfect. We had a meal just off the main square and it was both fabulous and fabulous value. We also went a bit further afield to a vineyard called Grous, other end of the scale, and a really great gastro experience with their own amazing wines.
There is plenty to do and to see, we mainly rested in the calm surroundings and went out in the evenings. Very friendly, tidy market town with a. Good feel to it. Highly recommended. Third visit in total and will be back again.
We were three woman staying at this wonderful luxury cottage. The house was very comfortable and spacious, furnished with everything you need.
Spending time outside on the veranda or by the pool surrounded by beautiful landscape was very pleasant. We couldn't of asked for more.
Being walking distance to the lovely town of Castro Verde with its friendly people and good restaurants was a big bonus.
Michaela was so helpful and friendly. We so much want to return again.
Thank you Michaela!
