About the property

Roca Magica

Country houses in the Alentejano Southwest (Portugal), placed within a 7,5 hectares estate, 10 minutes away from Sao Teotonio, 15 from Zambujeira do Mar and Alteirinhos beaches and 45 from Carrapeteira (a surf paradise).

House is surrounded by madrono trees, cork oak trees and eucalyptus in a quiet place, where the only noise comes from cowbells of cattle grazing in a distant country house and the murmuring of the breeze though the trees. Ideal to enjoy nature, relaxing and retrieving peacefulness and strength.

Wonderfully quiet and tranquil holiday hideaway.

  • 5 of 5

Blue Lar is an attractive quirky property in a secluded valley, with pleasant views towards a windmill- topped hill.

The cottage has everything you need for a relaxing stay, within easy reach of some beautiful beaches, our favourite being Odecixe which has towering cliffs, Atlantic rollers, and extensive golden sands.

Juan, our host, was very welcoming, friendly, and informative.

A gread time in a wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time - the Location is wonderful, the house is very nice, fully equipped and an oasis of peace. The private pool is fantastic, and the three places you can choose from to sit outside are wonderful. And last but not least the owners are the real jewel of the place: Nice, respectful, giving everything to make the stay a pleasure - thank you very much.

Amazing. We loved it and can't wait to go back.

  • 5 of 5

Blue Lar is a pretty, comfortable little house in a superb setting with a gorgeous patio and swimming pool.The owners are very welcoming, helpful and considerate. We love the surrounding countryside, which is easily accessible on foot from the house, the nearby coastal walks with beautful flowers and the stunning beaches.

I recommend the property without hesitation.

relaxing stay at the Blue Lar

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Blue Lar--it is a cozy and comfortable house, way out in the country in a beautiful location. We especially enjoyed the woodstove, and the quiet walks around the place. There are many spectacular beaches within a short drive.

Our hosts were great--welcoming and helpful. It was nice to have them nearby to give us information about the area.

Just right!

  • 5 of 5

Blue Lar is a comfortable cottage in a beautiful setting with views to the local windmill from your own pool. If it gets too hot for you there are nice shady spots to chill in. Juan was very welcoming (english is only one of the languages he speaks) and helped us with local information ranging from the best olive oil to where to hire bikes! We hired a car so were able to visit the fascinating walled town of Mertola, Lisbon (just under 3 hours drive) and generally get around the area which is rural and hilly. Portugal is a lovely country and you couldn't do better than stay in Blue Lar or the larger cottage Juan has next door.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have had a super busy summer so I am now just getting to write this review. We went to Portugal for our honeymoon and when we found the Blue Lar we had no idea how incredibly amazing our visit would be. Juan and Taina (I forgot how to spell it!) were helpful, so genuine and really took care of us. We are adventurous and like to explore and Juan helped us figure out what beaches to visit, where to hike and explore. What an experience we had. We can't wait to go back. We rented a car and thankfully picked up a new GPS the day before we left and found our way around no problem. The property is in a beautiful location - so peaceful and private. I could ramble on an on about how perfect our honeymoon was because we found the perfect location, property, and property owners. They were so gracious and generous, and even took us out on the town in Odemira one night. Incredible! If you are reading the reviews and considering a visit to this beautiful country - stay at the Blue Lar or the other cottage they also rent out on the same property, you wont regret it!!
