Monte Saraz stands out as the most special place where we have been during our tour in Portugal. We have vivid memories of the beauty and the uniqueness of the suites and the gardens. Smells of herbs and gentle sounds of water like in an Arabic garden in the old days. Above all, we enjoyed the privacy of our appartment... More

We had a suite rather than a house. It was beautiful...but a bit chilly. Marc was the perfect host and provided an extra heater and bedding...rendering the chilly comment redundant within moments. He also pointed us in the direction of a local restaurant to eat late on the evening we arrived. He called ahead and we were greeted with a... More

A visitor might find it strange to find a property like this in Portugal owned by a Dutchman, but for those of us who live here, it is not so unusual. Mark is a great host and knows all there is to know about the area. We opted for this place instead of a B & B inside the town... More

This is a very special place, designed with lots of love from the owner which can be experienced in all the details. Excellent breakfast. The owner gave us a tour of the estate with many interesting details about its history, dating back all the way to the Romans. No restaurants in the vicinity, a car is recommended.

We were in this amazing place only one night. Now I know - it should be at least a week! This place is like paradise. Nature around - real Portugal with its all beauty in one place. View on Monsaraz at any time of the day was so lovely that we didn't stop doing pictures:-) We were swimming in pool,... More

What a beautiful and peaceful location! Highlights have definitely been sitting on the roof terrace at sunset and watching the amazing bird life and the view of Monsaraz in the warm evening sun, then coming back to the same spot to gaze at the star-filled sky. Yummy breakfast with the homemade jams was the perfect end to our wonderful stay!

Lovely place, with a beautiful landscape inside and around. You feel at easy to relax and enjoy yourself and nature. Everything's clean and comfortable, the hosts were very welcoming and friendly. It's in the middle of Alentejo, where you can find several wonderful places to visit and experience an unique sight of Portugal.

My husband I had the opportunity to stay at Monte Saraz on our recent trip to Portugal. This place is gem. An amazing place to relax and catch your breath. The owner could not be nicer or more helpful, the setting is second to none and the rooms are large, clean and affordable. A nice pool and gorgeous gardens. Don't... More

My family and I stayed at Monte Saraz in June 2014. Monte Saraz is one of those rare special places that you immediately feel at home at. Mark has done an amazing job of restoring an old farmhouse and turning it into a magical and tasteful retreat. The room we stayed in, with private kitchen and bathroom, was very comfortable... More
