Propiedad fantastica. Cuidada y equipada. Lugar amplio y cómodo en un entorno privilegiado. Estuvimos dos familias. Utilizamos la casa tanto para descansar como para recorrer la región (Elvas, Marvao, Évora). Para las dos cosas la ubicación fue perfecta. Muy recomendable.

After getting used to the odour and the insects, the house is a nice place to stay. A lot a space (inside and outside) and tranquility. The only sounds are the goat's bells and a dog barking. The kids loved to explore the ground... Only thing, the pool had a strange color so the adults didn't go but it didn't bother the kids. Nice place, I recommend
