The house was remodeled 12 years ago in a contemporary, modern style for vacations and family gatherings. The minimalistic lines gives it a peaceful atmosphere while the warmth comes from the rustic details.
The house is spacious (220 m2), has an ample living-room, large windows, equipped kitchen, four bedrooms and two bathrooms. It's only rented in an exclusive basis for one group or family at a time. Linen and towels are provided.

The space

The house was remodelled 10 years ago in a contemporary, modern style for vacations and family gatherings. The minimalistic lines gives it a relaxing, beautiful atmosphere while the warmth comes from the rustic details.

It's placed in the countryside, in a fine residential quiet area, at 5 kms from the city.

It's a spacious house (220 m2), with an ample living-room, equipped kitchen, four bedrooms and two bathrooms, 2 balconies, swimming pool and fireplace. The property it's always rented in an exclusively basis, therefore the house and the pool are not shared with other guests. Linen and towels provided.

The porches and squares lines of the building reflects the moorish inspiration of the architectural project and the old wood sleepers from the train railways reused in the outside floors are the outcome of environmental concerns.

Also for a better environment and swimmer's health, the pool is not treated with aggressive chemicals. Besides, the tiles are green/grey so don't expect an artificial blue water. The pool is open from May to November.

It is worth saying that the house was published in several architectural magazines and was designed by João Trindade, a portuguese architect.

There is a TV in the house to connect devices like a computer so you can watch a movie (ask for cables). We don't have TV cable service. Enjoy your vacations to talk and play with your family and friends.

January - February: 15€/person

Evaristo Villa was perfect for our group of 6. We loved the house and especially the pool (it was hot!) The kitchen was well equipped and enabled us to have a couple of great dinners outside. We found Evora to be a pretty and charming town - especially loved the Palacio dos Duques de Cadaval (and adjacent church.) Sofia was very helpful in arranging to meet us and giving us tips on good restaurants, including Pateo for lunch. Would love to return some time.

Interesting designed house good for sharing with extended family with 2 bedrooms well separated from other two bedrooms. Very fair price/value relationship. Photo on listing may unnecessarily raise expectations too high given the years since the renovation but, again, very reasonable price/value. And Sofia was tremendously responsive and helpful!!

Sofia's Evaristo villa was our favorite corner of Portugal, a perfect end to a long trip that took us north to south, and throughout a bit of Alentejo, where we used this villa as home base. Sofia's warmth, charm and great hospitality made our stay perfect. The countryside here is beautiful - olive and cork and pine trees, gardens and fields, vineyards. Lovely starry nights. The house is wonderfully designed, a true modern house with great lines and nicely planned outdoor and indoor spaces. The pool is perfect after a day of touring around the countryside and hitting some vineyards. The beautiful city Évora is very close by, just a short few minutes drive from the house, so you have a UNESCO World Heritage site moments away. We were one couple and the house was obviously more than perfect for two people, but obviously it would be just the thing for larger groups. It is a home where you can do great dinners, grill out, chill out at the pool all day, read, relax, etc, if you don't want to leave, but then when you do leave you have all the best of the Alentejo within reach. I found this region really special, something like Sonoma and Tuscany but very much its own flavor too - and excellent wineries! Thanks Sofia for a great stay in the villa, we'll be back someday I hope!

Beutiful house that has everything you need. Perfect if you want to relax in the shades on the veranda OS swim in the pool after exploring the region. Good for families or groups like ours with 7 people. Sofia is an exelent host and chared her best spots in the region with us. I would love to come again.

Sofia's villa, which is close to Evora, is a wonderful house to stay in. While it was really hot outside, the villa was cool inside. The pool was super on a hot day, and so was the DVD collection from the National Geographic! Evora itself was a really nice place to visit and we were definitely not disappointed with our stay. Thank you Sofia.

Sofia's place is a spacious well equipped house with large rooms out in the country but still close to Évora ( just a few minutes away from a bakery, fruitshop an a well assorted supermarket). The nice pool was a welcome refreshment for our four girls after intensive citytripping in Porto and Lisbon. The communication with Sofia was very smooth and flexible (she's a wonderful host) and the tips and recommendations were very helpful to explore Évora. We're definitely coming back!

Great friends, good food, good wines, sun light and beautiful things makes my days. I'm a biologist, both a nature and urban culture lover. As a host I offer my hospitality and my local knowledge about the region to help everyone to visit this beautiful Alentejo.
