Property conditions & facilities

5/5 Excellent

Ideal base for seeing the region
The property was very clean and comfortable, and the garden area was a beautiful place to relax. Francisco was a very friendly and helpful host - he gave very helpful recommendations of places to visit in the area (Monsaraz, the observatory and the beach were all fantastic), and the friendly neighbours even gave us some fresh grapes and figs from their garden. All in all, it provided the perfect base for our visit to this region. Thank you very much, Francisco.

5/5 Excellent

A beautiful place in the heart of a very small town.
This house is a converted/renovated Portuguese traditional attached home. It was a special treat on our last leg of our stay in Portugal. We found the neighbors extremely friendly and welcoming. The host was very helpful and his added gifts to us on our arrival were wonderful; from his wife's homemade cakes, to the wine and coffee he left for us. We always have a great time visiting and exploring Portugal and its people.

5/5 Excellent

Very nice place, the house and the garden. Can highly recommend this place.
The house was well equipped, cosy and warm. Nice and quiet neighborhood. The host , Francisco was friendly and helpful and went a long way to ensure we had all we needed and made us feel welcome. Enjoyed the stay to the fullest. Thank you very much for making our stay pleasant, and the memories will last forever. We hope we get an opportunity to go back the the House Recanto da Horta. John & Kirsti Hveding

5/5 Excellent

Beautifully decorated house, spotlessly clean and a lovely host.
We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful house, it is very tastefully decorated as is the garden. There is everything you could need, including extra cutlery and barbeque utensils in the garden. We stayed during a heat wave, but thankfully we were really cool due to the air conditioning and the natural coolness of the house. Francisco was really friendly and helpful, always available if there were any problems and offered loads of information on the local area. We were welcomed with a delicious cake and snacks. The area around the house is beautiful and there is loads to do and see. We would definitely recommend staying here.

Silêncio quente que liberta a alma
A minha primeira vez no Alqueva. Magia total. O recanto da horta foi concebido ao detalhe, com um gosto decorativo excecional. Nada, mesmo nada, falta nesta casa de bonecas. A ruinha onde se encontra permite ouvir alguns, poucos ruídos, que trazem memórias boas do passado, como a buzina da venda de melão e melancia, as vozes envolventes entre compadres, as cigarras e as andorinhas. Foi um privilegio conhecer o vizinho, Sr. Alexandre, com mais de 90 anos, olho azul, doce e perspicaz. O Francisco, nosso anfitrião, foi inexcedível. Fez-nos o roteiro para conhecer este Alentejo genuíno e belo, com praias no lago, onde se nada em água morna e se ouve ao mesmo tempo os chocalhos das vacas que pastam e bebem na longínqua margem, do outro lado. ( A que preferimos: Mourão). Por sua sugestão, jantamos no Xarez, palco de um pôr do sol de tirar a respiração! Agradecemos a partilha deste recanto que ficará na nossa memória e nos fará querer voltar Bem-hajam!
