I wish I could have spent more time in Redondo. The property is easy to get to. Paul was great with communicating so we could get there easily. Views are beautiful from the pool; you can see all the way out to the horizon. There are a lot of sheep on the adjacent farm. Night sky is gorgeous. Very spacious house. Within a short drive are some surrounding towns if you feel like spending the day out. there is a grocery store within 5min drive. If you like gin try the Black Pig gin which is made in the Alentejo valley and not easy to find anywhere else in Portugal. Use some lemon from the lemon trees on the property and you have yourself an amazing cocktail.

Uma quinta paradisíaca, Clean and Safe, um acolhimento familiar, local de puro relax, longe de tudo mas perto de tudo. A casa, um mimo, a atenção ao pormenor. A piscina dominando o vale, o delicioso pequeno almoço, a simpatia e o saber receber dos anfitriões, sempre prontos a ajudar, a recomendar! Foi uma estudia que só pecou por ser demasiado curta. A repetir, mas em dose mais extensa! Obrigado Margarida e Philippe pelo que nos proporcionaram!

We travelled to the farm as part of our driving tour through Portugal. We stayed for 3 nights on the farm and did day tours to the neighbouring towns. We really enjoyed our tour of the cork forest and the wine tasting with Antonio. He was very informative and we learned some very interesting facts about cork farming. We also enjoyed tasting wine after our tour of the cork forest and vineyards. We had a great dinner of local cuisine one night prepared by our host. Our stay was one of the highlights of our trip to Portugal and we highly recommend staying at the cork farm. Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly. Thanks again for a great experience!

Our stay at this working farm and vinyard outside Redondo was magical. We were greeted by Andrew and Margarida, brother and wife of the farmer Philliip Mollet as we drove into the courtyard. We stayed in the main area of this 250 year old farmhouse with living room, dining room, kitchen, and 2 bedrooms each with on-suite bath. The facility was well furnished inside and the outside area was magnificent. There is a large cobblestoned patio with two tables under shade structures (the sun could get very intense here). A short flight of stairs led down to the path to an infinity pool with an endless view to the Alentejo below. There was a room under the pool with WC facilities and a refrigerator with rose and white wines available on the honor system. We chose to have dinner on the farm our first night, and the fish casserole and other items were very good obviously accompanied by some of their wonderful wines. The farm proved to be an excellent home base for exploring the towns of Redondo and Evora as well as the eastern Alentejo towns of Monsaraz and Morvao which were stunning. We took a cork trekking tour of this working cork tree farm with Antonio the next day and learned about the interesting work of cork farming before we reluctantly left. We drank many of their wonderful wines at very fair prices. We could go on and on about this place but I would urge you to find out for yourself how truly special this house and farm is. We only wish we had booked for many more nights and we are sure we will return, hopefully for a much longer stay next time.

Our time on the farm and in the main farm house was one of the highlights of our travels in Portugal. Beautifully appointed with vintage pieces yet all the comfort of today. Our 4x4 tour of the farm and wine tasting were also great. However, what makes this experience so wonderful are Philippe, his wife and all the people who are there to ensure you have a wonderful vacation and you leave with a greater appreciation of this region of Portugal...

Phillip and his family were truly wonderful hosts and very informative about the area and local restaurants - their choices all exceeded our expectations . The main Farmhouse / Corkfarm has been decorated beautifully and the atmosphere makes you feel like the home that you never want to leave. Coupled with Phillips friendly personality this is the best booking yet on our round Portugal tour .

We regret not having more days at this beautiful serene location. Lovely pool area with a bar and washroom! Short distance from Evora. The hosts are lovely and the surroundings were gorgeous. We were lucky to be there for cork harvesting! The workers were very engaging and we enjoyed watching the removal of large pieces of cork. Lots of olive, lemon and apple trees. Many dogs, cats, sheep. We heard how the farm brings in black pigs and allows them to roam eating large quantities of acorns to help them gain upwards up 100kg. We enjoyed the wine produced with the grapes from the farm. The accommodations were beyond expectations including lots of dishes, cutlery etc for preparing meals. When we return to Portugal we will stay here again!

we had a marvelous time at the Herdade da Maroteira in Redondo. Everything about it is as described or pictured, but even better. The house was lovely and very comfortable, and the pool was most inviting. At night, the stars were so plentiful and bright! I don't know when I have seen such a full and beautiful night sky. We enjoyed trying the various wines made by the family. They were all excellent, but the Cem Reis Syrah was fabulous. We also ordered a meal one night which was delicious and sufficient for several meals-lamb from the Herdade with potatoes, salad, gaspacho and a lovely biscuit cake. Best of all were the people. Antonio greeted us when we arrived and could not have been more helpful. He directed us to the local grocery store, and just by chance, when we arrived for our first visit, he was there and assisted us with some local cheeses. He also took us on our tour of the cork forest and was extremely informative. Philip and Marguerita were very attentive and helpful in making suggestions for day trips and restaurants. Jezerel (?) in the office was very kind as well and even went to the trouble of writing out for us exactly what kind of Maria cookies to buy to make our own biscuit cake and printed a recipe off the internet for us. I cannot go without mentioning the wonderful dogs. They are an integral part of the operation and are ready to greet you in the mornings or upon returning and are mostly happy to go on walks with you. The house was a great base for visiting the other towns in the area as well as the Neolithic and Paleolithic ruins. I was there for 16 days and moving on to one of Portugal's lovely pousadas but was so sad to leave Maroteira.

This well kept property is a great get away. There is staff that cleans the grounds every day which makes for a pleasing environment. It's a working Portuguese Heritage farm, with tours available and a lot of touring which can be done in the area. The infinity pool was super!

We only had two nights, I wish it would have been much longer. We stayed in late September. The weather was still warm mid day, cool in the mornings. Perfect for a dip in the infinity edge pool in the heat of the day. We went to a delicious very local restaurant, there are a number of options close by. The kitchen was well equipped and we ate in our first night not knowing there were places to go close by to eat. Redondo has a large and a small grocery store, both about ten minutes drive. The farm house is delightful. Generations of wonderful books in English. A fireplace, AC and beautiful furniture. You are definitely staying in a family house. The bed we slept in was very hard, this may be a good thing or not depending on your preference. This is the only thing I would change. Joseph took us on an informative, exciting and comprehensive tour of the property. Recommended. Thank you Philip for a wonderful stay.
