Great place for a weekend get-a-way close to the castle of Monsaraz. It is warm and cozy, the staff is nice and helpful, rooms are spacious and comfortable and breakfast is homemade and delicious. Overall a very nice experience in the Portuguese countryside.

Wow. Don't miss this wonderful family run hotel. We tried to stay in the old town but booked too late and came here. We haven't been disappointed. The hotel is immaculate, beautifully maintained and clean. Our room opened up to a balcony with views over the surrounding paddocks and the sounds of birds busy in the trees. The breakfast was...

Very simple review to write because we couldn't fault this hotel. We only stayed one night and arrived quite late but they were so helpful. Sergio recommended some trips for us to do the next day and a restaurant in Monsaraz. The rooms are traditional, have air conditioning and are clean.

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

Great home with a single soul. For any option is a perfect spot. To go with the children, with friends, in order to a romantic weekend or just to rest, it is always a good choice. The gardens are beautiful and the pool is very good sized. Monte Alerta location is perfect for those who want to take advantage of... 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.
