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

We stopped over for two nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The peace and quiet, the views, the hosts, the standard of cleanliness and the breakfast was superb. I wish we had decided to stay longer here, but we had forward booked other accommodation. We can highly recommend Cantar do Grilo, and Sonia, and Felix, who have clearly spent... More

We think we were the first guests this season at Cantar do Grilo, so we had the place to ourselves. From the great directions Sonja gave our travel agent, to the warm welcome from Felix, and directions for sights to see and places to eat, we knew we were in for a wonderful stay. Sonja's breakfasts were delicious! Wonderful homemade... More

The first time we went to Cantar do Grilo was some 3 years ago. We were in a group of persons on a walking holiday and enjoyed ourselves immensely. We decided (my wife and I) to return this year in October with another couple for 10 days. Felix and Sonja excelled themselves in making us feel as a part of... More
