Monte da Morena is a beautiful place located just outside of Serpa. With car you reach the city center in just 5 minutes. The accommodation is traditional Portuguese style as used in the past for the working people. It's simple, but very cute and liked it very much. The room was quite large, with airco and WiFi making it a comfortable stay. Breakfast contained of local products and really the queijadas were amazing. The scenery around this place is just stunning, an ideal place to relax. The owner Teresa and Custódia made us feel very welcome. To top it all off there are these 3 adorable and curious dogs who love the attention given. Would definitely come here again.
We were one night at Monte da Morena Agroturismo on a week of cycling through the Alentejo. Another couple joined us but were driving a car and although this place is outside of town, the drive to Serpa was very short. My husband and I really loved this place, and the host, Therese, was great! She was helpful with our dinner plans and, as we were cycling in an unseasonal heat wave, Therese arranged for us to eat breakfast early (and a good breakfast it was!) so we could get on our bikes and leave before the heat was at its worst. The rooms were large and comfortable and the surrounding area beautiful and quiet. My husband made great use of the pool, which was very clean and refreshing (he swam at least twice during our short stay) and we used the shaded sitting area next to the pool to relax with a cool drink after a long hot bike ride. This is one place that really touched us both for its rural beauty - watching a local “sheeper” and his dog at work in the distance early in the morning was very interesting, as was learning about the surrounding crops and agricultural area. I have to mention Brio (spelling?) the black Labrador retriever dog who quickly became a canine friend - which was welcomed to us being away from our own pets! Although our stay was short, this place felt like home to us. We highly recommend staying here for a lovely rural retreat.…
Highly recommend this place for people who are tired of city life. Very clean and beautiful rooms and hotel in general with nice terrace and 2 lovely dogs. The owner is very lovely, always ready to help and to everything for her guests in order to make them happy. And of course fresh air..... this you will not find in big cities
Great location for those seeking silence and rest. Accommodations exceeded expectations. The people are very welcoming and there is some freedom of choice that is not possible in big hotels (eg breakfast with regional products is served in a large table together with other guests, but if you prefer you can go to the porch on the outside) . I loved the endless views ... In general it was much better than expected!
We booked this lovely hotel by accident thinking it was near a motorway one of the best "mistakes" i have made.Very friendly welcoming staff.The room was nice and big with air con a swimming pool is on site just whats needed after a long drive..we walked into the town took about 20 mins well worth the walk..we had a very nice meal at a small price we will be visiting again the next time for a longer stay
