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!
We spent holidays in the country, one week outside the usual touristic circuits but near the nature.
Casa Laranjeira at Quinta do Monte, in the typical region of Portugal, Alentejo, is full of charm and peace.
Everything is perfectly clean and tastefully decorated.
Swimming pool calls for refresh because sun is very burning there.
Owners, Michaela and Nigel, are very nice and provide guests with all to make stay pleasant and relaxing.
There are lot of restaurants at walking distance in Castro Verde and places to visit.
Icing on the cake: pigs, hens, goats, ponies and horses we can visit and feed with food leaving. Children and adults love.
Thank you to Michaela and Nigel for so perfect staying and we are thinking about retur next year.
Just got back from here and all I can say is that the place is amazing.. great accommodation in a beautiful setting. Michaela made our holiday very smooth and recommended some great places to visit.. loved the terrace with BBQ and the views from the cottage. Some amazing restaurants in Castro Verde too. Definitely returning next year.
