This is the most beautiful and immaculately kept property we stay at in Portugal. We stayed twice this year, and try to visit every year. Michaela and Nigel are excellent hosts, and the cottage has everything you need. We walked to local restaurants and cafes, and recommend the new café next to the Turismo, where the owner is very welcoming, and speaks excellent English. Our favourite restaurants are Villa Italia and Market Verde. Although the birdwatching was better in April, we still managed to spot a good variety. Hope to return soon.
This 5 Star Villa was all we expected and wanted. It was spotlessly clean, very spacious and had everything we could want in self-catering accommodation. Michaela goes to great length with the detail to make people feel welcome, including a welcome pack. We asked for her to provide a Portuguese meal for us on the first night which was well presented and very tasteful. There was far more than we could eat so leftovers were eaten for lunch the following day! The kitchen was well equipped, as was the pool area, including a hammock for each villa! The views were stunning so sitting on the terrace of our villa drinking coffee enjoying the view was a must. We also particularly liked feeding the animals which included hens, pigs, a duck, goats and ponies. I'm sure they gained weight whilst we were there! We visited two of the many restaurants and cafes in town, both of which provided excellent meals. This is a villa we would love to stay at again. If you are not looking for a beach close by but just wish to enjoy a relaxing, comfortable villa with pools appropriate for adults and children this is the place to stay.
Having stayed at another Alentejo holiday property the previous week that did not live up to the expectations set in the marketing material, it was a relief to arrive and find everything is the same high quality at Monte da Quinta.
My family has been holidaying at Monte da Quinta for 10 years. We like the fact the property is clean, smells wonderful, is well maintained and immaculate, well stocked and offers lots of little extras. Highly recommend this property to our friends and family.
A very beautiful place to stay - the house was spotlessly clean, very comfortable ,spacious and everything you could possibly want was there.
The views from the terrace over the gardens, pool and unspoilt countryside were amazing and the endless blue skies were just perfect.
Nigel and Michaela were very warm, welcoming, helpful, generous and not intrusive all at the same time. The welcome pack, fresh vegetables from the garden and savoury supper (delicious) were all very generous.
It was a very unspoilt relaxed area with everything you need in nearby Castro Verde - great cafes and restaurants and a good supermarket.
We had an excellent holiday, the right mix of relaxing in and around the pool and getting out and about to explore Portugal. We hope to go back to Monte da Quinta very soon.
Monte da Quinta is an oasis in Alentejo. Located within easy walking distance from Castro Verde, a nice small town with good restaurants, it overlooks the beautiful landscape. Everything is fully renovated and extremely well kept. We lived in Casa Oliveira - it is spacious and was perfect for a family of four. Michaela and Nigel are excellent hosts, dropping by from time to time with fresh vegetables from their own garden, fresh towels and knowledge about the area.
This was our 5th stay at Oliveira, and we enjoyed it so much we've just booked to return again. The cottages are kept in immaculate condition by Michaela and Nigel who are also excellent hosts. There's plenty of information provided about local restaurants, and because of the excellent location of Oliveira you can walk to the restaurants. Our favourites were Villa Italia and Market Verde. The edge of town location means the views from the veranda are over the beautiful countryside, and we saw hoopoes, storks, booted eagles and red kites while sitting there, and heard nightingales. Out in the cereal steppes the birds are amazing. Our favourite sightings were of great and little bustards and lesser kestrels.
