“Fake information”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

Totally overpriced, 85 euros for the room they gave to us, which does not even appear in the website.
The information provided is just a fraud. Firstly, the pictures of the rooms don't correspond with reality, at least the one they gave us (the door didn't fit the floor, which provokes that it couldn't be entirely open! only one half; additionally, there was a 1 cm wide gap between, the door and the ground in some parts!; the floor wasn't wood, just painted cement, the window was as big a hole in the wall and the room had a short ceiling. Of course, this room is not shown in the pictures of booking.com or the hotel website; there is not minibar in the room, just a mini fridge). Secondly, they are not 15 minutes away from beaches - it can be easily check through googlemaps. It takes at least 30 minutes.
The road to reach the place requires almost a 4x4 vehicle! It is dangerous to drive there with a normal car.
Finally, the surrondings can be relaxing, even charming, but all things considered the hotel is overpriced and the website and pictures do not correspond with reality.

My wife and I stayed at the Pedras Negras in October. The converted farm sits upon its own monte, with wonderful views and a wonderful atmosphere of relaxation and warmth. Great breakfast, great evening drinks. The rooms are traditional, warm and friendly, nicely equipped with everything we needed - clean and comfortable bed/sheets/bath/interior plus plenty of room to relax by the pool/outside/among the cork trees and cacti.

Its a great way to spend time in the area because you get away from the crowds on the beaches and in the villages, but you're a short drive away when you are ready for the sand, restaurants etc.

In short, your are staying in Grace and Carlos's home, which they open to you. And it truly feels like a home away from home - only without the stress and bustle. If you don't like the country - this is probably not for you.

Absolutely delightful! This lovely little hideaway in the hills is just perfect for exploring this beautiful region of Portugal.

The rooms are lovely and rustic, typical farmhouse style and suit the setting. The breakfast is plentiful and the owners and staff are all tremendously friendly and welcoming, as are the dogs at the property. They are dog friendly so if you're travelling with your pooch you'll be welcomed here.

I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a comfortable, rural retreat that is a good base for exploring the area. The night sky is amazing, lying out by the pool with your camera on a long exposure you can see every star in the sky.

Don't come here if you're looking for bars and restaurants within walking distance and other touristy attractions, come here to recharge your batteries.
