What a lovely surprise Monte Alerta has been. We stayed here for 4 nights and wished we had stayed longer as there were still things we wanted to see and do. Our rooms were huge, with well equipped bathrooms and very comfy beds. The house is delightful, smells gorgeous (an important factor for me) and is decorated in a stylish... More

This is a beautiful place to stay. There were 4 of us and we had two rooms. Both were very spacious. One had a very large bathroom with double wash basin and the other a pretty balcony overlooking the front of the house. The hosts, Sergio and Vitoria, could not do enough. Breakfast was a buffet - plenty of fruit,... More

Monte Alerta is a traditional "monte alentejano", an old agricultural property, typical of this region of Portugal. The entrance is fabulous: you park your car and you go through a beautiful garden where you can smell all the flowers and herbs there and you can see the cats lying around in their nap. Inside, you immediately see two very cozy... More

Monsaraz is an unforgettable Moorish walled hilltop village, almost unique in Portugal. What makes it perfect is its panoramic views over the Alqueva lake, Europe's largest man-made reservoir. Monte Alerta is a traditional spacious Alentejo farmhouse with attractive outbuildings and a charming garden with a good sized pool, essential during the summer as this is the hottest part of Portugal!...

Monsaraz is a beautiful place to visit in Alentejo. This familiar hotel is perfectly located with a privileged view to Monsaraz. The pool and surrounding area are very nice. And the sky is amazing to watch. The room was comfortable but very simple and "empty". The breakfast was good.

What a welcome. Being slightly disabled with a broken leg and a mobility scooter!! we were instantly made to feel like part of the family. We were shown to our very well appointed room which was large enough to manouvere my scooter around. Big comfortable double beds, wifi, and large bathrooms. One of the most amazing things about this hotel... More

Monte Alerta is a haven of comfort, peace and graciousness in the Alentejo. Well-situated to visit Evora, Elvas, and only 2 hours away from the Algarve, it is a perfect home base for visiting Portugal’s interior. The house is vast and welcoming – cool in the hot hours of the day. The swimming pool and surrounding gardens are wonderful. Rooms... More
