Monte da Fornalha absolutely exceeded our expectations. The country setting is idyllic, well off the road and surrounded by orchards of cork trees. Orlanda, our hostess, has a fabulous talent for making interesting, cozy spaces throughout her property. The rooms are delightful and very comfortable, the main house has various spots to gather in and equally plenty of room to... More

The Alentejo in April, the sun out, the trees bursting with fresh green, the flowers starting to carpet the fields and cork groves, and on top of all that, Orlanda's wonderful hospitality. We relax at Monte da Fornalha like nowhere else. It's just bliss. Thankyou again Orlanda

this beautiful boutique guesthouse is a true gem! Our room was very nice decorated and large, the sitting and breakfast room is superb. It gives you a homestay feeling, which we liked very much. The breakfast was excellent as our host Orlanda! You will need your own car to get there. In the small towns of Borba, Villa Vicosa and... More

For the umpteenth time, a lovely stay at Orlanda's place, and we realised that it's almost like a club, meeting not only our friend Orlanda, but other guests we've met before, and all seem to be super company. Not that you have to be in other people's company, because it's perfect for total peace and solitude too, finding a spot... More

We highly recommend this place. The owner has such style. The rooms are beautiful, the breakfasts superb (homemade chia seed panna cotta for example) and the pool area is great for lazy days on hot afternoons

We stayed 4 nights in this place and had a lovely time. Orlanda is a fantastic host, the breakfast is outstanding and the place is comfortable and very very quiet. Ideal if you want to get away from it all. We booked the suite on the first floor and it was lovely, spacious. Garden and pool are also very nice.... More

Really beautiful rooms, pool, gardens. Fantastic breakfasts and great hospitality. Wonderful beds and bedding. Service and welcome truly outstanding. No effort has been spared in making this a memorable experience. I would go back tomorrow and stay a fortnight instead of just three nights!
