“Perfect place to relax and unwind.”
Reviewed May 26, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Beleive this was my fourth visit stretching back until 2011. The farmhouse is an amazing place to stay, spotlessly clean, amazing and useful "welcome back" pack on arrival, swam in the Pool everyday, enjoyed feeding the goats and pigs. Also a good place to explore from, this year we went to Evora, toured a local vineyard and did some quad biking at another one. Our wonderful hosts could not have been more helpful. With two properties there only we often had the pool to ourselves. The setting is stunning.

“One of the most relaxing holidays ever”
Reviewed May 22, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Castro Verde is a charming, sleepy small town, so “untouristy” that we couldn’t find a postcard. At Monte da Quinta, within easy walking distance of the town, you will get a taste of the “good life” Alentejo style with welcoming and caring hosts, Michaela and Nigel. We stayed in Casa Oliveira which offered spacious, spotless accommodation with superb views from the terraces.
We usually holiday on the Algarve and wondered whether two weeks in a more remote area would be too long. We ended up having one of the most relaxing holidays ever with a great deal of time spent lounging on the terraces, soaking in the atmosphere after a morning's birding. Don’t come here if you want night life and entertainment, but if you like wide open scenery, beautiful wild flowers and birds, uncrowded roads and excellent local wines, this is the place for you.

“A wonderful place to unwind”
Reviewed October 30, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Tucked away on the outskirts of sleepy Castro Verde, the cottages sit within the grounds of an old farm. Casa Oliveira is beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. We were welcomed by the owners Nigel and Michella and shown around the property. Delighted to find a welcome basket of cheese, milk and other essentials.
The views from the Casa are spectacular and the feeling of tranquity soon wraps itself around you. The accommodation standards are 5 star.
Using the Casa as a base for 3 days we drove to Milfontes on the coast (1.5 hour through gloriously quiet and stunning scenery). We also visited the town of Mertola to see the newly restored Castle. On the way we also saw the amazing waterfalls of “Pulo do Lobo”.
For a real taste of Portugal, Casa Oliveira is a “must stay” destination. I can’t recommend it enough.
