In a typical Alentejo house, we were greeted like family. We're home, "No Stress, relax" is the feeling. We appreciated a beautiful landscape, a saltwater pool, birdsong and the silence. And the fantastic breakfast? Oh my God, they are delicious !!! Already we miss them! The "Cantar do Grilo" found a great host, Felix and Sonja, you are fantastic! Thank... More

We lucked out that we were the first and only guests for this season at the truly lovely Cantar do Grilo beause we had Sonia and Felix, the gracious and really sweet owners, all to ourselves and that was a treat! They have created a beautiful accomodation in the serene Alentejo region of Portugal - a place of which we... More

A beautiful place and a stay to remember. First of all the fantastic view. It almost invites you to chill down and meditate looking at the calmness and tranquility of the alentejo landscape. The total absence of noise also makes an impact specially to city people. The only thing you hear is the birds and the wind. The property is... More

We spent two unforgettable days in Sonja's and Felix's paradise. The hosts were so warm, friendly and helpful, they made us feel like members of their family. Hidden in the blond and vast Alentejo landscape the property is beautifully designed and has a sparkling pool. The breakfast is out of the world, opulent and healthy. The great taste of the... More

We spent two nights at the guesthouse and were completely happy. First of all, Sonja as a host is taking great care of her guests and her breakfast müesli must be among Portugal's finest. Secondly, the rooms are spacious, decorated with an eye for details. Finally, the location, with an amazing view of the vast Alentejo and its quitness, only... More

This is one of the best stays we experienced in this region . The rooms are spacy and everything is very clean , however no television or airconditioning but this is for sure not needed since the house structure is build like the original Portugese tradition houses and so very cool inside. WiFi internet is always available but not that... More

We discovered this wonderful retreat some years ago when Felix and Sonia first opened it to the public. We had seen an article in the Guardian describing the strange and little-known landscape that lies "beyond the Tejo" river (alem Tejo) and that led us to Cantar do Grilo. Returning this year (2014) we were delighted to find the tasteful decor,... More

I've been in various places in Alentejo, and it is rare to have the opportunity to rate a place as amazing as this. A perfect place for Alentejo and nature lovers, where you find a landscape of extraordinary beauty and the calm needed to relax and recharge your batteries. It is also very close to Serpa (where you can find... More
