“Friendly and very comfortable rooms with fabulous food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

A gorgeous location albeit a little off the beaten track. But this is part of its attraction. Quiet and peaceful. Balthasar arranged a taxi to collect us from nearby Porto Covo. He then laid on a fabulous evening meal cooked by the wonderful Isabel. The next day he delivered us to a nearby town so that we could continue our Portuguese adventure.

Tres Marias is an amazing little oasis in the Portuguese countryside. We stayed for two nights as part of a bigger walking trip through the area and fell in love. The rooms are clean, modern and comfortable. The grounds are gorgeous, with wildflowers, sheep, donkeys and an ostrich. The staff is helpful and accommodating, but like another review said, invisible. Breakfast was great, a beautiful set-up. And dinner was a great mix of traditional and modern, a real treat. The nearby countryside was gorgeous for local shorter walks. Overall, a fabulous little place- I wished I lived closer, as I would spend a weekend away here whenever possible!

We stayed here for 2 nights whilst on a week long cycling trip. It is located down a sandy track some way from the road, really peaceful. Our room had a lower floor with small kitchen area, room for a child's bed and a sofa. Upstairs on the mezzanine floor was a large double bed. We also had a small patio area to sit and enjoy a beer offered as soon as we arrived in the afternoon. Meals are lovely. Super variety and quality at breakfast; great bread and rolls, various fresh yogurts and fruit, cereals, fuirt juice. All served on the covered veranda overlooking the fields. Dinner is served in a small dining room, again lovely food and local wines. All of the staff were very helpful. Our bags were moved on to the next hotel by the owner while we cycled the route. I enjoyed our stay and could have spent a few more days based here. As long as you have a car to tour around you can reach lovely local beaches north and south within about half an hour. You can also reach the coast by bike but a car gives access to a bigger area of the coast which is worth seeing.

This farm, in the middle of the fields, with a large view of the small mountains on the East, and the Alentejo's plain, is the perfect place to relax, read, write, paint or just meditate. The staff is very helpful, although somehow invisible, to keep the privacy of guests.
It is very close to the wonderful Malhão beach, umpolluted, one of the few reminders of how the coast when they were pure wilderness.
We could say, properly, that Tres Marias, if there was not an adjective too much and to often misused, is Zen.

I booked this place for 8 nights in may to go on my july holidays as I read about it on the casasbrancas.pt webpage and I thought the place would be an idilic post surrounded by nature and near the beaches, as they mentioned there. (Taking into account it is quite expensive)
Nevertheless it is all the opposite. The access to that place was awful. The road is a neverendless dirt track and the only nature that surrounds the house is a plain with yelow dry grass. If you wanna break your car, do not hesitate and go there. We couldn't stay ther 8 days! Each time we went to the beach, or to the village...we had to pass through that awful long road!
The first day, when we finally got the place we were very dissapointed for all that and told the employees that we didn't expect that at all. One of the employees called her boss Balthasar Trueb and exposed our problem. The employee told us that her boss didn't want to have 'sad guests' in his house so they would give all our reservation back as they can understand the problems of access that the place have. So we finally left the place and start searching for a place to stay in HIGH season...we lost the whole day! But that is not all. After that, Balthasar Trueb wrote us an e-mail to tell us that he would just give us back 90€ of our reservation! INCREDIBLE. A FRAUD.

Very relaxed and peaceful. The setting is rural and in practice one needs to have a car - or a bike - in order to explore the local area, though of course there are taxis. We were made very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed the setting, the comfort and the excellent food. A great place to unwind, soak up the atmosphere, read a book, and make friends. Really appreciated our stay.

This is a great place to spend some relaxing days. Near the beaches in Porto Côvo and Vila Nova de Milfontes, it's located in a very calm area. The only thing you will ear is the birds.
The breakfast is great, the staff is very nice, the service is quite good.

I really recomend it to spend some nice days just relaxing and enjoying the wonders of the Alentejo.

Room Tip: The small room in the back is very nice because noone goes by that way.
