It is a privilege to visit this delightful country retreat. However, it is a B&B and you can spend all day exploring the Alentejo and then must venture out again several kilometers for dinner so if the weather is inclement this can be a bore. When it's warm the garden and pool and one's room are a pleasure but if... More

Usually return visits don't match up to one's first impressions, but in the case of our second stay at Fornalha we couldn't have had a more wonderful holiday. The high standards of accommodation, breakfasts, gardens and quirky decoration were even better than we had remembered, and we were blessed with excellent weather Lovely walks or bike rides through the olive,...

One of the enchanting things about Orlanda's little paradise in the Alentejo is that we always meet lovely people there. This time, people we actually knew , though from years back . Despite the exceptional weather conditions, i.e. it wasn't perfect, which is what it usually is, our stay was wonderful, we gorged ourselves on Orlanda's figs, green or black,... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Monte de Fornalha! We had any chance to be our selves or talk to other guests. Forhalha is a boutique/rural hotel with beautiful spaces, in and out. No matter where you walk or sit, you look at beautiful well kept and clean surroundings. Fornalha is better than the pictures on the internet. The hostess... More

Orlanda had a vision and through perseverance, hard work and a keen eye for art and beauty has created a place of serenity, comfort, and luxury. Monte da Fornalha is a secluded oasis amidst fields, cork trees and vast countryside. In the heat of the day you can take short trips to local villages, castles and walled cities or cool... More

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
