Monte da Fornalha

Estremoz, Portugal
2 - 5 Persons
€ (up to 200)

This lovely B&B is located in the central part of Portugal, in the lovely quiet rural are of Alentejo, famous for its many pretty towns and villages and vineyards. This is an area yet to be discovered by the large crowds of tourists and to travel here is like stepping back in time 40 or 50 years. The general pace of life in the Alentejo region is sleepy and relaxed. A place to enjoy nature and each other’s company.

kids will love

  • Chilling in the bean bags or hammocks in the many cozy corners in the garden
  • Cooling off in the Moroccan-style pool and afterwards playing games or lazing around on the comfy mattresses around the pool
  • Discovering the area around Monte da Fornalha by bike
  • Visiting one of the many castles in the area, for instance Vila Vicosa Castle with real canons

you'll love

  • The breakfasts: they were superb with freshly squeezed orange juice, fruit, cereals, seeds, yoghurt, country bread, homemade preserves, cheeses, charcuterie and freshly baked, delicious cakes
  • Enjoying a drink from the honesty bar in one of the many cosy corners the place has to offer
  • The warm hospitality of Olanda. The B&B is the personal project of Orlanda Alves who, after spending a large part of her life between London, New York and Toronto, has fallen in love with the Alentejo’s traditional white architecture
  • The beautiful soft fabrics and welded/crafted furniture placed all around the property. That said, this is above all a hotel clearly designed for comfort. The super-thick padding on several of the loungers by the pool are a good example of this!
  • Walking or taking a bike from the B&B and ride through the olive, cork and vine plantation

Good to know

  • This is not a place for people who are looking for famous cultural attractions: you are here to relax, enjoy nature and the authentic little Portuguese villages
  • You need to drive for dinner in the evenings to eat out, as the B&B does not serve dinner. Nice local restaurants are within 5 minutes at Borba and 10 minutes in Estremoz
  • You have a little fridge in your room. You can ask the host for some cutlery so you can make your own lunch snack.
  • Children of all ages are welcome. Suite 480 can accommodate a max of 3 extra beds, so are most suitable for larger beds. Alternatively, you can book two rooms next to each other (but they do not have connecting doors). All the other rooms/suites can accommodate 1 or 2 extra beds/cots
  • As mentioned children are welcome, but the general vibe is that of Dolce far Niente (“do nothing”), so if your kids are really active this may not be the place for you
  • Not all rooms have air conditioning, but the thick walls and shutters of the 17th century building generally keep the rooms cool
  • To help you get in the mood of Dolce far Niente even more, the rooms do not have TV or WIFI reception
