Perched on a hill on a quinta once owned by Dominican monks, the cottage is a tranquil base for exploring the Alentejo countryside, convenient for many delightful day-trip destinations (see "The Neighborhood"). Closer to home, relax by the pool, stroll in the 15-hectare olive grove, grill on the patio, or wander around the lovely World Heritage fortress town of Elvas, a few minutes away.

Quinta do Veloso is heartbreakingly beautiful - the kind of beautiful that sets you in such a sentimental mood that it becomes a challenge to write a sober Airbnb review. In the late spring, colorful wild flowers decorate the fields of lush green grass and the sweet scent of or…
