Casa da Pereira is 1 of 6 independent houses on the stunning 50 hectares estate Monte West Coast, w/ a big swimming pool, only 5 km from the beach! Restored 2013 using traditional methods combined w/ modern comfort & design. 20m2+55 m2 outdoor patios
Located in a beautiful valley only 5 km from the beach Odeceixe, Casa da Pereira was restored in 2013 using traditional methods combined with modern comfort. With no kitchen, Casa da Pereira can be described as a little hotel room in the form of a house, since it is only 10+10 m2 big, with a comfortable double bed (160x200 cm), a mini fridge, espresso machine and a water boiler. The big bathroom is located across the outside patio, in a stone building. The shower hose is inside the skylight, which gives you a beautiful view of the sky, as well as natural light while having a shower! Please note that there is no kitchen in the house, but the estate's woodfired stone oven is at your disposal if you want to use it (takes some time to heat up though)!
In front of the main entrance are two big outside patios overlooking the meadow, a glimpse of the stream and the hills on the other side of the valley.
There is no washing machine or dishwasher in the house. If you wish to wash some clothes that can be arranged for you by the housekeeper at a small fee per load.
Casa da Pereira is one of 6 independent houses we have restored so far on the 50 hectares estate Monte West Coast. Here used to be a farm with a water mill and houses for several families, locals know it as Moinho (water mill) Aboboreira.
The river Seixe passes in the middle of the estate, then in front of the town Odeceixe and reaches the ocean 5 km downstream from us, at the outstanding Odeceixe beach (voted one of the Seven Wonders in Portugal).
A heated outdoor swimming-pool with a big sun-deck is at the disposal of all of our guests during the summer. It is located up the hill with a magnificent view of our part of the valley.
We have a big moroccan tent decorated as a lounge in front of the river, and with a little boat anchored next to it. Feel free to use both of them whenever you please.
On the other side of the estate are the farm's animals, among which you will find for example goats, peacocks, ducks, chicken and a cat.
The estate is in a protected area, only 3 km from the Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park. Driving inland from Monte West Coast you reach the mountains Serra de Monchique.
You easily reach Monte West Coast by turning towards Zambujeira de Baixo on the southern (Odeceixe) side of the Odeceixe bridge. This is, you make a right-turn just before the bridge if you are coming from the South, or a left-turn just after the bridge if you are coming from the North. The road then follows the river upstream for exactly 3 km (of which half is asphalt and the other half a dirt road in good conditions) and you have reached your destination. There is an access on the left where you can park your car. Cross the wooden bridge by foot and walk the short stone-paved path to reach the houses.

I have a swedish mum and a portuguese dad. Moved to Lisbon from Stockholm in 2009. Since we came across Monte West Coast, which now belongs to my husband and me, this is where we spend almost all of our weekends and holidays. We have two sons, born 2010 and 2012, and a daughter born 2016!
