Great refuge to relax from the busy city life. Felix and Sonja are excellent hosts, on one hand they let us completely at ease (it looks like we are at home), and on the other they are very friendly and chatty giving valuable information over the region (like Felix told us, "I'm an Alentejano"). Impossible not to mention Syrah, always...

A beautiful place and a stay to remember. First of all the fantastic view. It almost invites you to chill down and meditate looking at the calmness and tranquility of the alentejo landscape. The total absence of noise also makes an impact specially to city people. The only thing you hear is the birds and the wind. The property is...
