Very well equipped cottage with stunning views

  • 4 of 5

As advertised this was a lovey 200yr old farmhouse beautifully restored by the owners with stunning views, a very quiet location but with easy access to Alte for your supplies.

Comfortably furnished and well equipped, also wth TV and wifi.

A fan would be useful in very hot weather and easier access to opening the skylights, which could also benefit from having blinds.

Alte cottage

  • 4 of 5

Just spent a wonderful week here. The cottage was just as described-very comfortable and home from home, full of character and personal items, lending a relaxing ambience. Wonderful outdoor space for chilling and looking at the views. Great location as was easy to travel either East or West, so a car is essential. We felt to be living in a truer Portugal than down on the coast, which is what we like. We found the people we met very friendly and the coffee shop and restaurant in Alte well worth a visit. Our first visit to Portugal exceeded expectations and left us very impressed. Peter and Lindsay were very helpful throughout. We would highly recommend a stay here.

Thank you for an amazing holiday, the villa was lovely with breath taking views.

I would highly recommend this villa if you are looking for a quiet relaxing time away or like us a family holiday as we had our 16 month old baby with us and we all had a great time.

Alte is only a short drive away, we're we found cafes, super market, chemist and a few other shops.

The neighbours were very friendly and polite.

I had good communication with Lindsey prior to arriving and also during our stay.
