Fantastic place for a beautiful stay near Castro da Cola. The view over the estate and the infinity pool are gorgeous. There is an amazing trail of 5km from the Monte, which is all signed and really worth doing. The breakfast is regional and very good. The rooms are lovely, very clean and comfortable. You can take a quick 15min drive to the nearest town called Ourique where You can find same nice views and food is also amazing. Absolutely worth a drive, we will definitely return to Monte do Alento.

André e Filipa dois anfitriões de altíssimo nivel sempre disponiveis e prontos a ajudar. O Monte do Alento tem muito potencial ainda por desenvolver, o walking trail melhor sinalizado e a possibilidade de petiscar enchidos e vinhos da zona

Vamos voltar!
A quinta tem um potencial enorme, esta ainda a ser melhorada. Mas sem duvida que vamos voltar :) Localizacao muito silenciosa, vistas deslumbrantes, piscina muito bonita, quarto acolhedor. Atendimento excelente. O que faltava? Artigos de higiene no quarto, champô por exemplo. Não disponibiliza refeições para alem do pequeno almoço.
