The Monte do Peral location is fantastic in Monte Juntos at Alentejo, as well as the facilities like the spaceuos rooms, the swimming pool with a beautiful scenary remembering Africa and a service kitchen for barbecue available for all the hosteds. In addition, the dark sky to watch the stars and planets confirming that Alentejo is a unique special place for relaxing, There was yet the opportunityto go to the fluvial beaches as Mourão or Reguengos. I really recommend Monte do Peral for families.
Monte do Peral is a treat in so many ways. The scenery is stunning, the accommodation country luxurious and our hosts so, so friendly and helpful. Marianne's breakfasts are worth the journey by themselves, and every morning is different. The scenery in the region is gorgeous and there is a pottery town nearby where you can see Portuguese pottery actually being made. We loved a night out under the stars at the local observatory and also cromlechs in the region. Evora is nearby. Spend a few days here if you can. Great for couples and families alike.
Very quiet place, very good room plenty of space and clean. Stuff are very pleasent and available all the time. Breakfast is good but simple, homebread, can have more fruit. Swimming pool is very good inclufing a space for jacuzzi. I think all roooms are very good. Do you wan't to rest? This is the wright place. Good price vs quality. Room with no AC but with heated or cooled floor complemented with an electric fan and it works very well
Thoughtful extras turned this accommodation into a highlight to the point where we changed from 2 to 4 nights: Detached “cabins” meant extra privacy, welcome bottle of wine (perfect for evening charcuterie style eats sitting on the porch listening to the birds and taking in the gorgeous view-sublime), robes, comfortable mattress topper, magnifying mirror, towels changed every couple days, outside kitchen, large multi-language library and finally the smell of homemade breads and cakes at breakfast. We generally have difficulty sleeping, yet found everything about this place contributed to restful nights. If you are there on a Saturday it’s worth going to the market in a nearby town to stock up on a range of local food-details from your hosts.
We spent 10 days at the “Monte do Peral” lodge and loved it. The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. Rooms have terrace and most of them directly overlook the countryside. Our goal was just to rest, I can't imagine a better location. It is very quiet and allows sufficient privacy between guests. The starry nights (no light pollution) and the sounds of nature (cuckoos, thrushes, crickets, etc.) are incomparable. Marianne and Jos were very attentive to what we needed. We are celiac and they kindly adapted the breakfasts to our needs. The only let-down: not being able to enjoy the pool area because of the season in which we visit them. To sum up, a perfect place to reset ourselves from stress and our rhythm of life.
