Please kindly note that Portugal suffers many wildfires. I would appreciate being extra careful with cigarette buds (there is an ashtray) and fires.

We hebben erg genoten van ons verblijf in Borba. Het huis is voorzien van alle gemakken en ligt tussen olijfbomen en wijngaarden. Zoals de naam suggereert, is het aangenaam rustig rond het huis. Een perfecte uitvalsbasis om de Alentejo te ontdekken.

This house looks over the city of Borba and is in walking distance to the main centre of the town. I now feel very much at home in both Borba and the surrounding area of the Alentego. We spent several days walking round the town and seeing the many historic buildings. It is a lovely place – small enough to feel knowable but with such a long history full of interesting places to go to. I recommend a visit to the tourist information - we spent an enjoyable half hour learning about Borba from a friendly and knowledgeable guide who was manning the centre. The locally made wine is terrific. This is my 2nd visit to the house which is very comfortable with easy to use appliances. The most wonderful feature is the front terrace which gives a view over Borba.

We very much appreciated our time staying at this house which is located in the heart of the Alentejo region but still at a reasonable driving distance from Lisbon. Both the owner and the person that came to greet us were very friendly and available. The approach to the house is made through a beautiful plantation of olive trees and the house itself is a good size with a large terrace and garden with wonderful views to the nearby marble producing town of Borba. The house is very well equipped, there was literally everything we needed. As we were a bit unlucky with the weather, we greatly enjoyed playing the board games provided and the warm fire. All in all a very relaxing weekend and we very much look forward to returning.

We truly loved our stay in this wonderful and authentic Alentejo monte.... wonderful gardens full of fruit laden trees and views of Borba and the Alentejo plains. Lovely kitchen, rooms and veranda where you can just sit and contemplate your beautiful surroundings. Highly recommended!

A beautiful house, and the loveliest view of Borba from the terrace. A great base from which to explore the Alentejo.

A Charming well appointed house with great views and rural location. Pick a lemon off the tree for your Gin and Tonic. Easy drive to the town and can be walked in about 20 minutes. Garden is still under renovation but will be fabulous when complete.

Located in Borba, a very typical village of Alentejo, this is the perfect place to enjoy nature in peace and comfort while at the same time you can find the friendliness and hospitality of its inhabitants as well as the gastronomy, the wines and the culture. I'll visit again.
