Other things to note
Dogs are wellcome - These are Timóteo Barbosa and Vergílio Armindo. They have been abandoned and we decided to adopt them. They have been part of the family for quite some time now. Apart Timóteo and Vergílio, with Monte da Cabeça Gorde we have "inherited" Lola and our property caretakers own Fadista and Tico - a big family ;) We believe or dogs are part of who we are so at Monte da Cabeça Gorda, dogs are wellcome. Of course there are some rules that must be followed:
1 - The owner might be asked for a deposit which will be given back when check out is done.
2 - The owner muust bring with him all the dog´s vacination records and show it to us.
3 - The owners must bring with them all dog´s bowls, toys and slipping objects.
4 - The owner is responsible for all damage the dog might incur in the property.
5 - Cleaning after the dog is the owner´s responsability.
6 - In case the dog damages anything in the property, the owner shall be notified and responsible for all expenses incurred.

Aqui as horas são mais longas do que em qualquer outro lugar.
No verão, o sol aquece a planície e a piscina enquanto a construção típica alentejana mantém o interior fresco e convidativo às sestas.
No Inverno, quando o frio aperta, os quartos e apartamentos estão quentinhos e agradáveis graças às salamandras, aquecimentos centrais e aos vidros duplos.
Sabe bem ler um bom livro, beber um chá e comer uns scones.
Os hospedes tornam-se amigos que voltam sempre para gozar da tranquilidade de um Alentejo sereno.
O pôr do sol é ímpar.
As noites, estreladas como em mais sítio nenhum.
O silêncio apaziguante.
Os animais simpáticos, felizes e saudáveis.
Os vizinhos da Vila corteses e acolhedores como só os alentejanos sabem ser.
No Monte, tudo funciona numa harmonia simples, sem pretensões, sem pressas, sem horários e com boa disposição.
É para isto que trabalhamos.
