Wine country
We stayed in Falcon Nest for 5 nights. We were met upon arrival by the owners mother. The home is located in a small hamlet Falcoeiras. The property has been renovated and the bedrooms are a good size and comfortable. When we stayed in the area the weather was extremely hot 45c .This home did stay very cool, the farm style kitchen gives you room to prepare meals and enjoy sampling some of the wine the area has to offer. The hamlet is located near a larger town Reguengos de Monsaraz that is a short drive away.Here there are a few large grocery stores and restaurants. We frequented the leisure centre as it has a amazing 50 meter outdoor swimming pool. . The area of Alentejo is know for many things wine, marble, megaliths, hill top towns, castles, lakes and Evora . This home is well situated to reach all these things. theadventuresofthemadill.wordpress.com is my travel blog that mentions the area

Great place for an extended stay
Was stationed in Evora for work for three months and stayed here the whole time with my wife and three young kids. It worked out very well for the kids since the house has a nice backyard and basically four bedrooms (three bedrooms + TV room with door that you can set up a cot or bed in). Shopping at nearby Reguengos is a five minute drive for almost everything you need. House is in good condition, fully furnished with almost everything you need except entertainment.

Remote for visiting Evora
Overall the atmosphere is great for this house, but as a base to visit Evora and around it is quite remote, except if you only intended for nature.

Nice little cottage to relax
A nice little cottage in the country side, nice to relax and be in touch with nature. The house is located in a little rural village close to some nice historic landmarks. It is a typical house from Alentejo that was completely renovated which makes for a comfortable stay. Everything was very clean and tidy.

A very nice place to spend a quiet holiday and get to know one of the most typical Portuguese regions.
A very nice and well maintained house in a very typical Portuguese region. Having a car is a must to move around. You can easily drive to great gastronomy, wine, nature and even water sports at the Alqueva. Spain is also close if you want to pay a visit to the Portuguese neighbor. The region is very quiet and is excellent for a hike or for cycling through beautiful landscapes.

Map
About the neighbourhood
REDONDO: Redondo is a Portuguese wine region centered around the Redondo municipality in the Alentejo region. The region is bordered by the Borba subregion to the northeast, the Evora subregion to the west and the Reguengos subregion to the southeast. The area is known predominately for its fruity red wines. REGUENGOS: Reguengos is a word from old Portuguese and it means 'something belonging to the king's patrimony; rights that belonged to the Crown'. In this case it is the land around Reguengos and Monsaraz. Reguengos is in central Alentejo and is the main town of the municipality of the same name. The municipality is conspicuously agricultural with the main economic activities being wine-growing, olive oil production and a strong rural tourism component. Today Reguengos is the unequivocal capital of Alentejo wine. It is one of the oldest towns south of the River Tejo and its founding can be traced back to pre-history. It was once a castro (a hill fort, typical of the mountains in the north-west Iberian Peninsula, from the Bronze Age and Iron Age, which from an early stage shows signs of implementing a 'stone civilisation'). It was later occupied by the Romans, Visigoths, Moors and, in the 12th century, by the first king of Portugal, Afonso Henriques. EVORA: One of Portugal's most beautifully preserved medieval towns, Évora is an enchanting place to delve into the past. Inside the 14th-century walls, Évora's narrow, winding lanes lead to striking architectural works: an elaborate medieval cathedral and cloisters; the cinematic columns of the Roman Diana Temple (near the intriguing Roman baths); and a picturesque town square, once the site of some rather gruesome episodes courtesy of the Inquisition. Aside from its historic and aesthetic virtues, Évora is also a lively university town, and its many attractive restaurants serve up hearty Alentejan cuisine. Outside of town, Neolithic monuments and rustic wineries (Adapted from: http://www.lonelyplanet.com/portugal/central-portugal/evora) ALQUEVA DAM: Grand work placed in the heart of the Alentejo, the Alqueva Dam, is set in the hydrographical basin of the River Guadiana and since 2002 is becoming the biggest artificaial lake in Europe. This Big Lake is an attraction pole to the development of tourism and leisure. The open-air activities as the sports, fishing and the use of the space as a bathing-zone; or the walks in nature, the bird watching, recreational sailing (motorized or not) are more and more expressive activities in this region.
