Beautifully restored manor house with a great pool and double aspect dining room with sweeping views (where breakfast is served). Similar stunning views from the two vast terraces on two sides of the house. The rooms are simple and elegant. Gabriella and Carlos are the loveliest people. They both work really hard and it shows in how they have restored the place and how they look after their guests! We felt that we could relax and treat the place as our own - it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Equally Gabriella and Carlos were on hand when we wanted advice - we were so appreciative of their recommendations concerning restaurants, vineyards, towns to visit etc. When asking them why they did not have any pets, they regailed us with the most wonderful story about their goat - ask them what they did with it when they went to Lisbon! The breakfasts are heavenly, especially the cheeses, fresh breads, pumpkin jam and the cakes. The honesty bar was a good touch (I would have used it more had I not been expecting but my husband made up for it!) Serpa is a nice little town, just a short drive away. Stay here and you won't regret it!
