Apartment overview - owner's description

This former restored farm (Quinta) is situated in the province Alentejo, at the edge of the nature area Serra de Monfurado, approx. 3km from the historic town Montemor-o-Novo and 500m from the village Reguengo. This is divided into three ground floor houses. During the restoration, sustainability is taken into account (the house is self-sufficient and is kept warm / cool by a heat pump), keeping the traditional style of the Alentejo. This is how the big open chimney has been kept secure. The outside is painted in the classical colours blue and white and has marble terraces.

The Quinta is located between olive trees of 8ha with a tropical garden, big swimming pool and a children's swimming pool. The view is breathtaking on the hills and the castle ruins of Montemor-o-Novo.
The houses have its own entrance, veranda and private terrace. One of the houses belong to Dutch owners, who are sometimes there and will be able to help you with anything you need for tourist tips in the surrounding. They will gladly give you a guided tour on their estate of 280 ha., through the cork woods and along their herd of sheep and cows. There is a lake at the Quinta in which you can swim.

Jeep safaris through the outstretched corkwoods, through almost remote villages and along castle and cloister ruins, which can be arranged by the owners. It is even possible to water ski and there is a carting lane within 20min. close to Evora.

The town Montemor-o-Novo is centrally situated, 250km to the Algarve, 100km to Lisbon and to Spain. A car is recommended, in case you want to see more of Portugal. In the village are two cafes for light meals and a little shop; there is a post office as well which almost sells everything. Even a cultural centre, which functions as, a meeting place especially over the weekends.

Warmly received by the owners Ellen and Hans, who were waiting for us. Two days earlier they had already informed about our arrival time. Although the arrival is between certain times, they are very flexible, as long as they are aware. The house is blissful. Very cool. Completely as described on the site. It looks better in reality than in the photos. Everything is very hygienic. Sheets, towels and kitchenware are provided. It has been nicely renovated and yet has retained its typical Portuguese style. It is a nice and clean swimming pool, well maintained by the host who is always busy with maintaining the grounds. He regularly empties the garbage bins of the guests. Furthermore, there is a pizza oven and barbecue on site that can be used by guests. Wood is available for the oven. All of this is in a beautiful garden, also beautifully maintained. There is a maximum of 20 people on the domain, which makes it very quiet. The domain is on a large lane, but that does not bother you at all. There are large fields full of cork trees all around. Nice to go for a walk.The area is not very touristy, so it is very quiet. There are some nice sights. You are an hour from other tourist cities such as Evora, Lisbon, ... Furthermore, Ellen knows a lot about things in the neighborhood and also a little further. They recommended a very nice and delicious restaurant: A Ribeira. We found it a pleasant and relaxing stay. Thanks Ellen and Hans

Kotey Jul 2018

We have had wonderful time with our family. The cottage was fine, with a beautiful garden and a lovely large pool, almost for ourselves! Ellen and Hans are very friendly and helpful and give good tips on what to do in the area. There are fun day trips to eg Evora and Setubal (recommended!). Hans Ellen also know how to recommend nice restaurants. It is wonderfully quiet, so a nice place to recover.

Pale Jul 2018

Quiet, clean accommodation, matching our expectations. The small (but sufficient) house with Portuguese charm. Environment conducive to rest as well as the discovery of Portuguese landscapes, ideal for family holidays.

Very friendly people. Nothing is too much trouble to make the sentence the guests. Excellent base for excursions in the area.

Ursula Lebkücher Aug 2015

The outdoor complex garden, great pool to ourselves, chairs, fruit trees were very nice and relaxing image on website was not home, but the laundry and workroom, pictures of the apartments even from the inside were not available, and for good reason, because the interiors did not meet the expectations and standards - Beispiele- upon arrival we found in the cupboards dirty dishes (burnt leftovers) before the previous tenant - apartment not thoroughly cleaned - still a lot of dust on chairs, furniture, window sills, mirror in the bathroom mold on the tap, shower rod wrong, cobwebs in the corner in the bedroom sheets with holes, 1 bed sheet ripped mattresses including partially torn 1 bedside lamp with loose contact socket of wall torn \/ heraushängend- living \/ dining area hanging over dining table old tube TVs, drooping with dirty cables - did not work because antennas and power connections were torn out of the wall - generally flat can be easy, but should be clean, which was not the case here furniture old and dusty (and bed), flat inside was uncomfortable, the outside nice.

De Jong Aug 2014

Beautiful house with a swimming pool where you can swim and enjoy a beautiful garden.Processed here we have made several trips to eg Evora and other beautiful medieval towns. It is also less than an hour drive to the sandy beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. In Evora is also a very good kart track.

Hendrickx Jul 2009

We have a blissful week stay behind in Casa do Forno. The cottage (6 pers.) Is very authentic and has all comforts. The bedroom duplex found our girls max Our hostess, a very cordial and sympathetic lady, provided a warm receives. She made sure that every morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast with "soft" rolls. We have here very quickly felt at home, especially since the whole area is accessible for guests. In the flower garden was plenty of room to relax at the pool, lazy guys in hammocks, or play with the dog Natacha. By heavy winds vliegerden we in the meadow between the sheep and cork oaks. Wonderful experience! Thank you for our wonderful holiday in Portugal! Zhao Family-Hendrickx from Belgium

Lewis Apr 2007

A lovely house in a rural location but with good access to towns around. Motemor-o-Novo five minutes by car. We were made very welcome by the Owner and her dogs, both very friendly. Front and rear terraces give all day sun and sunsets over unspoilt farm land. A nice spacious house with lots of outside space.

Vandersteen Aug 2006

During our stay we enjoyed the house and its surroundings. This is not the way, thanks to the warm welcome by the home owners. Least One feels immediately at home.

PERON Aug 2005

The "welcome is very warm couple of" Dutch and their two dogs. Throughout your rental week you will live with them and their love for the region. You're sure to be "well guarded and accompanied (for dogs). They are like the son of the house even if Mr and Mrs already have 7 children. L" family spirit is very present throughout the semaine.Si you like dogs, the "family spirit Dutch-Portuguese, go there you will not be disappointed. Ate logo!
