Sou de Lisboa, Portugal, gosto de fazer caminhadas, de praia e da vida ao ar livre em geral
Do alto da serra de Montemuno "descemos" quase 500km até à bonita Costa (website hidden) km 66, da N121 ladeada de velhos sobreiros, viramos à direita e entramos na estrada de terra vermelha. A luz do alpendre da casa estava acesa. A casa da Sonega esperava e acolheu-nos com todo o calor e carinho. De quem a habita.
Naquela semana saboreamos o pão alentejano que acompanhou as nossas refeições. A Sonega, foi a nossa morada. Foram dias muito agradáveis, rodeados por uma bela paisagem. Deliciamo-nos nas águas mornas e límpidas das praias de Porto Covo.
Da minha casa, no alto da serra, não consigo ver o mar mas sei que está lá. Atrás das montanhas onde o sol se deita, ao pé da Sonega.
Muito obrigado à casa e à sua Anfitriã!!! Certamente que esperamos poder voltar. Até breve:)
If you are looking for a relaxed holiday in a relaxed surrounding with an apartment that gives all that is necessary - than look no further.
This is NOT the Ritz - but then who has ever had a very relaxed time at the Ritz? ;-) This is more the 'everything's relaxed / 'todo vale' kind of place.
Alentejo I think is the most beautiful coast in Europe. I've been all over the place, but the paradisiacal beaches in combination with the wilderness is breathtaking. However, the people are not always as friendly as hoped for / or as friendly as other coastal places (they probably just want to keep the manic tourism away) - but there are some VERY friendly people there (Carmen being one of them.)
The house itself is situated fantastically. The view of the surroundings, the closeness to all kinds of magic beaches. The animals that walk freely between the neighbors and the place gives an experience that can only make you be happy. It has good space and there's always a place to sit/lie in the sun. The place has all the utensils you'd want need to come with a bigger group, but is fine with just 2 as well. What you see in the pictures is what you get: No more, no less!
Carmen is in one word: fantastic. She was very helpful in giving us small maps of the surroundings and what were nice beaches & places to eat. My girlfriend had an ear infection and Carmen helped in guiding us to the right place, and give 'moral support'. She also left all kinds of nice things that just make the stay better.
In short - I'd recommend this to anyone who wants to go to a place where tourism/commercialism has not yet taken over and life is a bit more simple. You also should not want a glitzy holiday - because that is not to be found here. For all others - you'd be selling yourself short not coming here!
A estadia em casa da Carmo foi fantástica! A casa é muito simpática e confortável. As praias lá perto são maravilhosas (a cerda de 15 minutos de carro). Optima para descansar e recuperar as energias! As próximas férias que fizer na zona, quero poder voltar a ficar nesta casa!
La casa de una sola planta es muy cómoda y muy bonita, se nota que sus propios dueños la usan asiduamente y eso le da un encanto especial. Carmo habla un español más que perfecto y fue encantadora con nosotros, nos explicó todo y nos dejó la casa con la consigna de disfrutarla como si fuera nuestra, además se tomó la molestia de comprarnos hasta el pan.
Nos encantó pasar aquí nuestras vacaciones es un lugar a descubrir y un sitio perfecto para disfrutar a la vez campo y playa..
Sehr zentrale, schöne Wohnung. Carmo ist super nett! Supermärkte, Restaurants, Strände und was man sonst so braucht sind fußläufig gut und schnell zu erreichen. Ich würde jederzeit wiederkommen und habe den Aufenthalt sehr genossen.
We chose Sonega for it's location. If you search for true countryside atmosphere but you don't want to renouce the outstading Alentejo's beaches, then this is the perfect place to go. The hosts were very friendly, welcoming and flexible allowing us to do a late check out, and gave us all the local advices such as grocery stores, restaurants or where to buy wood for the fireplace. The house was clean and well equipped and both terraces, in east and west facades allows a flexible use of sun and light. The morning and sunset visits by the animals of the nearby farms was always an exciting and pleasant moment for the kids. Definitely a place to free some stress from daily life.
