My wife and I stayed here for a week with my parents in August. We had just flown from the US, where we live, and we wanted to take my parents out of Lisbon, to spend some time with them, and to rest. In all accounts, our stay was excellent. The area is naturally beautiful (we knew that), but the Quinta is beautiful too, decorated with a lot of taste and care. The rooms (and the beds) are excellent. The place is quiet at night, and in the morning you wake up with the rising sun and the smells of the aromatic plants of the Alentejo. We really rested. The breakfast is superb: you have to make an effort not to try everything. The pool provides an extra plus: in the morning there is no one there but the water is still warm from the previous hot day and you can actually swim. Margarida and Luis run the place impeccably, the personnel is all very friendly and nice. This is certainly a place we would come back to. Strongly recommended. One more thing: ask Luis for restaurant recommendations in the area; all his suggestions were excellent. Cheers!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Quinta do Chocalhinho is a centenary estate located near Odemira, with 10 double rooms and 5 suites T1+1, framed by a beautiful landscape and a very interesting culture.Luís Freitas is the name of the owner, the same as his grandfather’s, who left him these 70 hectares of land, with a very old house, now rebuilt with a drawing very close to the original one. Photographs and oil paintings show the resemblances, and the old pavement that surrounds the house, the schist walls and some “taipa” (lath and mud) walls, make us relive other times.After a happy childhood in this estate, and many years working in different parts of the world, Luís Freitas and his wife Margarida have decided to put all their dedication into this agro-tourism, with body and soul. The furniture has been carefully chosen during several years in the East, and tastefully combined with the rural and sober environment of the house. The rooms are very comfortable, with central heating, TV and private WC and the suites spacious, all with 1 double room, living room with fully equipped kitchenette, private WC, mezzanine bedroom with twin beds, and an exclusive patio by the pool. The breakfast is composed by regional products, and the biological kitchen-garden is loved by the smaller ones as well as by the grown-ups.The house is totally surrounded by olive trees and cork oaks, and a stroll will transport you to the true essence of the Alentejo, amongst old watering tanks, wild boar trails and a wonderful view over the estate.You may also enjoy the tennis court, the salted water swimming pool and a small playground for the youngest ones. Besides you’re only 2 kms away from Odemira, were you can find all the facilities you may need, and 20 minutes from the Vila Nova de Milfontes and its beaches. ... more less
