my husband and i stayed at malhadinha nova in late july 2011 for four nights. we could not have asked for a more relaxed and lovely break. the staff were all incredibly friendly and welcoming. our room was a quiet little retreat - cool, smelled amazing and had the most comfortable bed i've perhaps ever slept in. the pool is fantastic and the vineyard is stunning. had a great vineyard tour. great food (amazing olive oil - be sure to buy some!) and wonderful wine. only advice would be to fix the sign off the IP2 and put driving directions on the website so that the hotel is easier to find! we got very confused and a bit lost trying to get there at night, as the roads are extremely dark. other than that, malhadinha nova is a really fantastic place.
