Lovely historic farmhouse in original state. The owners are welcoming and friendly. Breakfast is an experience, the pool is quiet, big enough and clean. The views and the light are overwhelming. Serpa - one of the most beautiful towns in Alentjo- is a stone-throw away. Only 5 rooms, so very exclusive. Worth a recommendation.

Enough chairs and shadow if it gets to hot. On the first floor there is a nice lounge and terrace. Most charming of all is the warm harted welcome from Gabrielle and...

Gabriela, the amazing hostess, has thought of every detail, including an ice-cream brought to the pool in the late afternoon while we were relaxing after a day touring. We started with a warm welcome then a detailed tour of the fabulously restored house, followed by a welcome glass of wine or two at the bar with Gabriela. She told us...

A few kilometers out of Serpa is exactly where you want to be. Quiet, luxurious, clean, everything you could ask for. The house is spectacular and the hosts are wonderful.

You can see that he put a lot of care in this renovation. After the tour they offered us a cold drink, which was...
