Cerro da Fontinha Rural Cottage was another accommodation that fascinated me during my visit to Alentejo. It is located on the other side of the country. Situated to the little beach, near the coast and Vincentian. It is the Algarve. Alentejo also has the beach and well worth visiting. This cottage was built in compliance with the provisions of the Alentejo. It is constructed of white adobe wall. It is a small houses plan made of several rooms in a superb natural environment. There are people nearby with which to interact. It is made for rest and relaxation. What stands out most is that they have a natural lagoon in the middle, which serves as pool, pier. It is an ideal place to spend the summer with family.
The Quinta Pero Vicente is a holiday Cottage that can be found near beaches more European selvages. In the park naturale "Southwest Alentejo and Costa Vincentian". Accepts dogs. Fantastic dinner (fish it then ...). Family Mul (only three rooms to rent, with bathroom and heat). There "bikes" free to use. At night, just the sound of the sea and the birds ...
got a lot out of my trip to Alentejo. However what surprised me most was the variety of possibilities in the housing. What I most recommend, without doubt, are the cottages. There are many and they are very well prepared. Made more special firstly, because of its location. It's just 20 minutes from the beautiful town of Serpa but also they're completely lost in the countryside. Among the olive trees and nature. The sunset is magical. The second, by its owner. Felix. A Swiss (high marketing executive) who had a dream: Setting up a different and unique cottage in Alentejo, an area that he loved. After ten years of struggle, Felix finally got it right and set up a place that is indescribable. The house is amazing, but the environment ... If you ever want to disconnect from absolutely everything, go there, meet Felix and his wife and enjoy a few days of maximum silence.
The first night I spent in Alentejo, I stayed in this country cottage located in the center of the town of Crato. It was the first of the typical villages of the area that I came to, so the first thing that struck me was the color of the walls, which were all painted in white and yellow. The village itself is not anything special, but it is fine for a leisurely stroll. The house, meanwhile, is great. It is a restored ancient palace, and therefore the rooms are quite spacious. The owner is fantastic, and the place is very cozy. Furthermore, they serve great homemade food. Opposite, there is a very interesting ship, almost a museum, which houses parts of old carriages.
Magnificent landscape surrounds this mountain making it unique. From dawn to glorious sunset, you can enjoy unforgettable moments of pleasure. Time stands still, calm and comfort become allies and is definitely an amazing place to achieve peace, and rest from the daily grind of the city. Warm.

An excellent house, with an indoor swimming pool, playhouse, a lot of space and animals - ducks, hens, dogs, etc. For us - two families with children - it was a great summer holiday. It's not far from the beach, but to be honest, the house itself is almost enough to keep you busy for a few days of fun and relaxation, with plenty of safe play space for the kids.

The Vincentian Coast Natural Park and the southwest part of Alentejo are an undiscovered paradise. At night, millions of stars shine, I did not remember that there were so many. At this place, you will hear the sound of chirping crickets, the sea and smell the unmistakable aroma and sweetish of Alentejo, wonderful!
Best of all, the hosts, Martha and Richard are as attentive as we had ever found! Upon arrival, there was a basket with eggs, vegetables and fruit every morning and fresh bread at the door. But that's not all, Richard gave us time to discover the best places and downs to the beaches and something that we will never forget. Our baby got sick and they have us care and support, we will NEVER them and hope to return one one.THANKS!!

The garden, the pool, the room, the building: all of it is lovely, but the rooms are not, ours was dark, the decor left a lot to be desired and the bathroom was dirty, there was hair on the floor and ceiling and there were black marks in the tub, but really black. It did not feel clean. Also every 20 minutes aircraft taking off from the nearby airport went by and the sound is loud and annoying. Also I heard incessant whispering passing by.
