5/5 Excellent

Excellent for relaxing and close to nature
Excellent location and well maintained property. The pool is simply fantastic and reading or simply relaxing with the sound of birds is very peaceful. The internet connection is of good quality. The owners are very friendly and available to help and make us feel at home.

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing and peaceful
The villa is 'away from it all' and set in beautiful gardens. We were privileged to see a variety of wildlife and birds during our stay. The swimming pool and hot tub were great to relax in. It is a quiet and peaceful area and the villa is very well equipped with everything you need and more. Neill and Mel are great hosts, very friendly and genuine people who want you to have an enjoyable holiday. We would definitely recommend and will be returning. Thank you Neill and Mel Kathryn and Rob

5/5 Excellent

Simply perfect!
This was our favourite family holiday destination by a long way. We arrived here with our two children (7/8) at the end of October and had the most idyllic 2 week stay. The house was immaculate and the grounds were enormous. The children has lots of freedom, we brought walkie-talkies and they were able to go feed nearby horses, while we 'waited' in the hot tub. There was also a games room, pool, table tennis, darts... we didn't hear 'I'm bored' once! Due to the geography of the house we were able to travel to the west coast, up north to Evora and east to Spain. We also travelled to the south coast a few times, where the children had a beach (Praia de Senhora de Rocha) completely to themselves. Restaurants near the property served fabulous food. The shops in Ourique had everything we needed, though our gracious guests had bought us the essentials so we didn't have to go to the shops until the next day. We floated home with a definite plan to return to this property.

5/5 Excellent

Just got back from a 10 day stay at this superb villa. it does exactly what it says on the packet - peaceful, relaxing, perfect, everything you could possibly want and more, attention to detail second to none. the villa itself is more than well equipped and the owners have ensured it is literally like a home from home - there was absolutely nothing we lacked for, including English TV should we have wanted it. we were emailed before our arrival to see what we would like from the shop but they also got us wine and beer too. Mel and Neill were there to greet us and explain everything and were on hand if we needed anything. there were even things to use in the pool which was cleaned twice during our stay (Mel turning up with homemade scones, jam and cream too!!) the hottub was amazing and there are 4 separate areas with dining tables and chairs. there are a few restaurants nearby and a good supermarket too. we never paid more that 3 euros for a bottle of wine and never had a bad bottle!! we used the BBQ three times and loved it. the shade from the tree was needed every day as temperatures were over 100 degrees every afternoon. the beds were the comfiest I've ever slept in anywhere on holiday and we always had a good nights sleep as the air con units were superb. the pool was definitely NOT cold especially if you used the shower by the pool first before getting in, which you should do anyway and it was HUGE!! Amazing to swim laps in and also just to lazily float around. there wasn't another soul around for miles so it was the most peaceful holiday we've ever had. to say that Mel and Neill were the kindest most attentive hosts we've ever had would be an understatement! Nothing was too much trouble and all they wanted was to make sure we had everything we needed to make our holiday perfect - which it was. Even to the point where, as an animal lover, I fed a beautiful cat for several days then one day she turned up with two adorable kittens, which never ceased to make us laugh watching their antics. I didn't want to leave them but Mel and Neill, being animal lovers themselves having rescued three stray dogs and lots of beautiful parrots at their own home, offered to catch them and rehome them in their house - amazing and so kind hearted. All in all we can only say if you are wondering whether to book this villa, don't delay - peace, tranquillity, just like home, beautiful surroundings. we are already looking at dates for next year, a true treasure.

5/5 Excellent

A peaceful oasis in the heart of the beautiful Alentejo
This is a fabulous, clean and comfortable cottage set in beautiful, thoughtfully laid out grounds. It has just about everything you could want to enjoy a relaxing break. Mel & Neill were on hand to greet us on arrival with a much appreciated welcome pack, and it is very evident that the comfort of their guests is their top priority. They have managed to create a homely, peaceful and relaxing oasis in the heart of the beautiful Alentejo countryside. We will most definitely be back! Muito obrigado Mel & Neill
