We have spent four days in Monte Branco with a couple of friends and our two babies. The house and area are beautiful. It miss some basics tools in the kitchen to cook but everything else is great. The patio is very charming and the pool is so nice. Thank you Jane, we surely recommend your place !

Ferme portugaise typique et enchanteresse, composée de 5 logements indépendants, qui donne l'impression d'entrer dans un Marie-Claire Déco ! Pour notre part, nous avons séjourné dans la Casa Forno. Séjour excellent et dépaysant, dédié au repos, à la sieste et à la contemplation de la très belle campagne environnante. Plein de balades à faire dans les environs. Nous sommes restés une semaine et nous avons passé un excellent séjour. Seul regret : la taille des lits un peu petite pour qui dépasse les 1m80.

Sensation d'être dans la savane africaine! Très calme et plein de charme. Ideal pour qui aime les vieilles pierres et l'esprit lodge, avec la piscine parfaite. Lac à proximité et possibilités de promenade en voilier ou bateau à moteur. Jane est une hotesse très presente et toujours là pour vous donner de bons conseils (réservations de restaurants, coins à visiter, etc...)

Espaço e localização bons mas falta de limpeza e higiene com louça suja e sem mudar lençóis.

It is a pity Paulo didn't come to stay himself ...only his family who were lovely but clearly not used to staying away from home and his mother spent the whole weekend cooking and cleaning ... the house was impeccable for their arrival and the beds made with clean sheets and bathroom towels supervised by myself

Jane User Profile

I am an Interior Designer that fell in love with the Sintra mountain and the village of Penedo, where I bought my fist ruined cottage which I restored in typical rustic Portuguese design. This was my own home and where my children grew up, thus the cottage is ideal for one or two families with children. Many happy memories sitting around the big country kitchen/diningroom with a big log fire...and fun barbecues by the pool. Now I am able to share my lovely home for holiday rentals...but still live next door so can ensure your stay will be a perfect memory too
