Un îlot de tranquillité
Propreté irréprochable. De petites attentions de la part de notre logeuse (notamment dans le frigo). Endroit au calme (sauf quand il est envahi par mes enfants).
I'd like to thank Sofia for writing such a complimentary review and for awarding us 5 stars.
She is a charming lady with a lovely family. I really hope that they are able to return again. It will be good to see them again.
My best wishes to them all.
Marvellous villa, made really, really special by the hospitality given by the owner
Spacious and very clean two bedroom villa, with the added benefit of a very large kitchen/dining/lounge room. Comfortable beds and furniture. Kitchen well-supplied with utensils and basic supplies (salt, oil, clingfilm, etc.). On arrival, very pleased with the thoughtful provision of eggs, milk, bread, teabags, sugar, coffee (instant and filter!), orange juice and a bottle of wine.
The villa has a really nice pool (shared with other villa on site). Originally planning a holiday spent mostly at the western beaches, in the event we spent many happy hours by that pool, so pleasant were the loungers, the light rippling on the pool, and the stunning views. So quiet and peaceful, a great way to relax and enjoy the sun, with a chilled glass of wine ready to hand from our fridge if we needed it!
Ourique is only a few kilometers away, and there is an excellent supermarket and petrol station as you enter the town, so gaining necessary supplies for our holiday was very easy. Within the house, there were full notes on the attractions and facilities in the area, including recommendations to the local restaurants; we found these immensely useful.
We did have one or two days of cooler weather (mid-October, after all), and Penny, the owner, gave us plenty of olive wood and firelighters for the log-burner stove in the lounge, which really made us toasty-warm in the evenings.
Wonderful though the villa is, it was made extra-special by the continual kindness and thoughtfulness of the owner, Penny, in ways too many to express. She really tried hard to make our holiday in Portugal really special, and she succeeded. We're already planning our return trip back there next year, and if we can, we'll go twice...it's that good.
I'd like to say a huge thank you to David and Susan for taking the trouble to write such a wonderfully detailed and complimentary review.
I am delighted that they enjoyed their holiday here and that I was able to make it so special for them. It really was my pleasure.
I'm really looking forward to welcoming them back again, next year.
Fim de semana no paraíso
Passamos 2 noites na casa da coruja e adoramos . A casa tem tudo o que é necessário , boas instalações , óptima vista, Ourique por perto bem como Castro Verde . E a Penny é uma simpatia e uma excelente anfitriã . Esperamos voltar e usufruir ainda mais da casa e piscina espectaculares . Recomendo
Eu gostaria de agradecer a Helder por escrever uma excelente relatório para nós e também por seus comentários muito elogiosos sobre mim.
Estou tão contente que todos eles adoraram a casa e a piscina e que desejam voltar. Eles são uma família adorável e será bom conhecê-los novamente.
I'd like to thank Helder for writing such an excellent review for us and also for his very complimentary comments about me.
I am so pleased that they all loved the house and pool and that they wish to return. They are a lovely family and it will be good to meet them all again.
The best place to relax and enjoy
Ein wunderbarer Ort zum Entspannen und Genießen. Das Doppelhaus eignet sich wunderbar für größere Gesellschaften und Familien. Die Sonnenuntergänge und das beleuchtete Swimmingpool am Abend waren die Highlights an diesem Ort. Penny und Greg haben das Haus mit Liebe eingerichtet und halten es sauber und gepflegt. Es fehlt an gar nichts - ist sowohl für kleine Kinder als auch für Menschen mit Behinderung geeignet. Und wenn etwas nicht funktionieren oder fehlen sollte, dann sind Penny und Greg sofort da, um alles zu richten. Wir haben unseren Familienurlaub in diesem Ferienhaus sehr genossen und würden das dort wieder tun. Wir fühlten uns bei unseren Gastgebern sehr wohl!!! Vielen Dank dafür!
We had beautiful family holiday not last because of these wonderful hosts and the cozy house. After our daily trips we enjoyed to jump and swim in the lighted pool, to make barbecue outside of the house or only to watch the sunsets. If we had a little problem or missed something, Penny or Greg were always there to give us a recommendation or to find a solution for them. We felt very comfortable and had many fun. Thank you so much, Penny and Greg!
I'd like to thank Monika for writing such a wonderful review for us following their stay in Casa Coruja. I'd also like to thank her for taking the trouble to write in both German and English.
It is so important to us that guests enjoy their holidays here and so gratifying when they confirm that they have had a wonderful time.
On a more personal note, we are both so pleased that we were able to play a part, as hosts, in making their holiday such a success.
We are resident proprietors, so there is always one of us available to answer a question, solve a problem, if one arises, or just for a chat. We are here if our guests need us, but in the background, if they don't.
Small Gem in the Heart of Alentejo
Vale da Cegonha is a wonderfully isolated property at the top of a hill ("monte") in Alentejo, 6km from Ourique. It is composed by 2 main houses. We stayed at Casa da Andorinha, a 1-bedroom detached house with a fully-equipped kitchen. The outdoor area in contact with nature and the swimming-pool are the highlights of the property.
Although there is no electricity at Vale da Cegonha yet, the generator provides power for most of the day.
O Paraíso do Sossego
O sitío ideal, para descansar, longe do stress.
As casas são optimas, com todas as condições, e os donos muito simpáticos.
Um abraço Greg e Penny!
