“Lovely place in the middle of nowhere”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

We had a wonderful week here with Peter and Joke. Our safari tent was more like a house with canvas walls, with everything we needed. The only thing you could hear were the birds in the trees, the cow bells and the dogs. And the breakfast provided by Peter and Joke was a wonderful treat, with lots of fresh fruit and other surprises. If you want a quiet and luxury place, this is it!

We spent three nights in the Mongolian Yurt during our honeymoon tour of Portugal. Portugal Nature Lodge is a very special place, and we had such a great time there! Peter and Joke were the perfect combination of hospitable, helpful, but not at all nosey or pushy. We also highly recommend the breakfast that they serve~ so many delicious treats! We hope to return to Portugal Nature Lodge year after year.

Room Tip: I highly recommend the yurt!

This accommodation was excellent, a wonderfull, private, luxurious stay in the middle of beautifull and quiet Portugese nature: what else would you wish for? Joke and Peter are very helpfull, friendly and more interesting, they know exactly what you'd need. So, everything is just there for you. A comfortable, bathroom and kitchen with all facilities, you name it, it's there. Apart from this, the fact that you spend the night under the stars in in our case a beautifull, clean and comfortable yurt makes it all extra special. Next to the yurt was a hammock available, and a little bamboo shelter with 2 chairs and a sofa. Just perfect. I wish everyone will have the opportunaty to at least stay here one time in their lives. Before I forget: on hot days there's a refreshing swimmingpool you can use.. again in the middle of beautifull and quiet nature. The surroundings of this location are magical and beautifull too.

Room Tip: All accommodation is special, from yurt to tipi, to safari-tent...

We can not speak highly enough about this destination. We stayed in the double tepees with our 3 children. They were mesmerized by cows (no smells just the sounds of cow bells), the accommodations, the hikes, and the pool. As adults we were impressed by the cleanliness and set up of our site, the delicious breakfast, the views, and the friendliness of our host. Our family did not want to leave, but we promised our kids that we would definitely return. You will love this treasure tucked into the countryside of Portugal! Bring your camera, bug spray, spirit of adventure and be ready for a great time!

Very comfortable and beautiful. The space was large and wonderfully designed. We ended up extending our trip and they were very accommodating. Nothing more for me to say - highly recommended! You will love it!

We have just returned from Portuguese Nature Lodge we spent two and a half weeks there...two weeks in the small tipi......(tho' really not small at all and very romantic ) and three nights in the yurt..( very large and a bit more luxe) but they were both beautifully appointed with a real nod to style and comfort .....your own kitchen .......more than adequate with plenty of pots,pans etc and a good size fridge.....and each with it's own really nice shower room........
Peter and Joke a young Dutch couple who own and run the place are wonderful hosts with a wealth of knowledge about the Alentejo area they now call home . They have a passion for their business and work hard to make your stay memorable and have created a little bit of magic at Monte Malhadins......
The Alentejocoast has spectacular unspoilt beaches and coves which even in the height of the season are relatively quiet compared to resorts in the Algarve.......The coastline here resembles Cornwall with small coves surrounded by dramatic cliffs.....You will need a car!!!! But the roads are very good ......
The area is off the beaten track ..... Mainly Portugese couples and family's .......At PNL when we were there there was a high proportion of Dutch couples which made for interesting conversations at Peter and Jokes' twice weekly dinners in the cabanna....... ( could not recommend them more) Joke and Peter are fantastic cooks.....!!!!!!and at €15 a head with wine beer etc (children less) is astonishing value for money......
I could go on and on about this little slice of Eden and still not do it justice.... you just have to go and try it for yourself....... We had a wonderful holiday....

Room Tip: Choose from Tipi,Yurt,or Safaritent all will exceed your expectations.....
