Sobral de Monte Agraco, Portugal
Reviewed 6 August 2016

Nice T1 with kitchen and fridge, facing the swimming pool and the lavander/rosemary garden. Property near the village of Alcaçovas, in the quiet open golden Alentejo landscape. The owner indulge us with homemade ice tea and cakes every afternoon, in the swimming pool. The family loved also the breakfast either in the typical dinning room or in the exterior lounge....

We had a great week with our two young kids (8 & 12). The appartment is complete, clean and functional. Tastefully decorated. The place is excellent for peace and quiet but at the same time the pool, feeding the goats, playing with friends was all the distraction our kids needed (and a 1,5 hour siësta with the IPad on excellent...

We were traveling through Portugal by bicycle, so we needed a place near a restaurant. João, the owner, brought us dinner from a local spot. João was helpful, speaks 5 languages (we speak English) and is dedicated to making this a premier spot. He's well underway. Shower was great, rooms were big enough, and the included breakfast was a charm....

Our host upgraded our room to an apartment (not quite sure why, but appreciated it). We overlooked the lovely pool and the many birds it attracted. We got wifi only on the porch, but that was OK. The rolling hills, studded with cork trees, were gorgeous. Earlier in the day we were asked to choose from three menus, and did,...

Service: staff was friendly and helpful. Amenities: exteriors are very nice but our room was a bit to low-fi for the price paid. Pool is good. Wi-fi didn't reach our room: had to go to the pool deck for (a low) signal. Location: alcacovas is a small town with a limited offer of services. Food: breakfast was underwhelming. No meals...

Dear tpedroso, Monte da Cabeça Gorda hás a new management team. One of the aspects we are working on is the wifi service in order to reach a wider area. As for meals, in the future, and from middle June, we will have a terrace where light snacks can be served, such as sandwiches, salads, crisps etc. During the day,...

Reviewed 16 August 2012

We had great expectations upon arrival, but we quickly realized that the photos we had seen only concerned apartments, not double rooms. The surroundings were a wreck: no garden, no grass, no trees. Just dirt and dead, dried plants. The painting on the external walls was quite worn and cracked. No welcome given, a garden-keeper introduced us to an ultra-spartan...

Dear APynto, Unfortunately it seems you had a dreadful experience. Management at Monte da Cabeça Gorda changed and we are working to make sure everything works as it should. Rooms are as were, and spartan has not been the word used to describe them apart from you. We are sorry for that. In fact the double rooms do not have...
