Lucia went out of her way to make our stay welcoming and comfortable. The apartment we stayed in was clean and good sized for five friends. There was a grocery store within a few miles so we were able to have great meals there.
The location is just outside of Evora near a business district. It is quiet, with lots of open space. I think a car is needed to stay here. Once you get to the Tyco building, follow the roundabouts as Lucia indicated and it is easy to find.

We had made a reservation at the Monte da Serralheira for one night. We arrived late in the evening, and planned to visit Evora the next day. Although we arrived a little later than expected, we received the warmest welcome. The owners showed us our apartment and asked if we had had the time to eat. They gave us a map of Evora and gave us directions to a nice little restaurant.

Because the owners knew that we did not had a lot of time on our hands, they offered us a small and simple breakfast with some bread and cheese (instead of the "extended" breakfast they usually offer)... and they made us a very good deal... It was the cheapest breakfast ever... and just what we needed. Just like home.

We stayed in a old, but spacious apartment in this renovated farm... Nothing luxurious, but all we needed.

After breakfast we left, and spend the day in Evora... Unfortunately, we did not have the time to try the pool...

We really enjoyed the quiet place, the beautiful surroundings and the refreshing pool.
It is a cozy homey place that makes you feel welcome and makes you want to come back there which is something we will do for sure!

We rented one of the four or five apartments at this working farm for two nights. It was fairly spacious, with two bedrooms and two baths, and an outdoor patio with a table and chairs.

The apartments -- former housing for farm workers -- are not fancy, but more than adequate. They are in a long, old stucco building which has some character. The kitchen was fine for preparing breakfast or lunch, but less well equipped to cook a dinner. The English-speaking owner -- a Dutch woman -- both friendly and helpful. The pool is a pleasant place to cool off during a hot day.

The walled city of Evora, restaurants, and supermarkets are a short drive away, but not within walking distance.

I would recommend this property for families or couples traveling together, as long as they have a car.

We have just returned from a 4 day stay in Evora.
Staying at Monte da Serralheira is a quiet option after visiting the bustling city of Evora.The host works his land around the farm and the hostess is a certified guide.It is well worth visiting the surrounding area with her.The apartments are clean and fresh and the swimming pool well kept.There is a little airport for small planes not too far from the farm,but no noise at night or on the weekends.There is not much to do for small children.The owners are Dutch and very helpful with information.We had a very pleasant quiet stay there.M Huët.
