“Wonderful house - beautiful countryside - Toby an Cher are the best hosts!”
Reviewed September 3, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We certainly do agree with all the nice and positive things written in the reviews before.
Furthermore we want to mention that the location is really fantastic! It is very quiet, so you can hear and see bee-eaters, stonechats and crested larks.
Cher and Toby have their own vegetable garden. They gave us several wonderful things to cook and offered us the possibility to pick more, if we would like to. In the kitchen we found beside other delicious things "selfmade" olive oil, herbs and honey from the region.
Three houses in a hills landscape, far apart offering privacy, lots of enchanting details in and around the house and - not at least: lovely hosts let us spent a wonderful week in August.
We certainly would like to come back again!

“A little paradise in Alentejo”
Reviewed July 8, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The house is fantastic, traditional but totally renovated with great taste and love. Toby and Cher are very friendly and helpful. There are many beautiful beaches in the area as well as small villages where you can buy fresh fish and cook it on a BBQ which you have near the house. This is the best place to enjoy real Portugal in totally comfortable and inspiring environment.

“The perfect countryside getaway”
Reviewed June 16, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Our family of four found Casa Velha to more than exceed our expectations. The house is equipped with all the facilities of a modern home, elegantly decorated with extremely good taste and style perfectly matching the countryside scenery. Hills and valleys provide a soothing backdrop for the house and its charming garden. To spend a day on the beach the magnificent Atlantic coast is within 30 minutes drive. Still need an extra level of tranquility? Just switch off the Wi-Fi access point. Also, the hosts were incredibly helpful and friendly.

“A wonderful and peaceful corner of Alentejo”
Reviewed May 29, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Such a nice experience!
The location itself and the property were surprisingly great.
First the location, you definitely need a car to get there, but it's worth it!

Atlantic Ocean (25 min car drive) both for surfing and for beach holidays, several nice towns around (less than 15 min car drive), as well as the touch of agriturismo concept - everything can be found at the location.

As for the property: you will find really well equipped little villa, which is not so usual. Devil is in the details. Everything you touch - kitchen tools, bed linens, dishes - is new and high quality.

All together it makes your staying so enjoyable and you definitely want to get back once again!

“Relax, settle back and breathe...”
Reviewed May 12, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Beautiful and quiet location, gentle landscape and really thoughtfully laid out stylishly prepared accomodation. But also 10 minutes from Cercal and 20 minutes from coastal towns like Vila Nova de Milfontes with its nearby great deserted beaches. Run and owned by Cher and Toby, who've brought their infectious enthusiasm, warmth and charm to bear on everything in sight. And there's a lot to see. You do get to see it too, with advice and personal recommendations and a sense of adventure if you bring one. If you'd rather chill out I can't think of a better place to do so. Enjoy it, we did and we'll be back.

“The perfect place to be”
Reviewed April 17, 2017 for a stay in October 2016

It is the unspoiled nature that settles you for the time being there and you may enjoy to rest and do nothing...but it is also, maybe even more, the hosts T&C that make your stay special and relaxing. Everything you need is just there from Alentejo sea salt to natural detergent, even sand toys for kids. It is their passion for hospitality that makes you feel more than welcome. You feel at home. The houses are well designed in a high standard, the modern fireplace (of course wood and lighter are ready to use) works perfect, the floor heating is just comfortable and the barbecue grill on the private outside terrace invites you to grill your own fish bought in the market hall while you experience the most beautiful sunset (except those by the sea ;) )
We had the most relaxing sleep as there are no disturbing noises at all (by the way also not during the day).
Yes, the village is very small and it feels a bit like in the middle of nowhere, but the way to get there is very easy if you follow the provided instructions. The nearest towns by the sea (25 min drive) offer all you want beaches, shops, markets, and real Portuguese life and culture.
We will definitely recommend this place (we stayed 7 nights). Have a nice trip!

“THE place in paradise!”
Reviewed April 13, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Casa Velha at Sernadinha is a just wonderful!
The house is very comfortable and you really have everything what you need. Toby and Cher designed it with love and it was very clean.
You have an amazing view all around the house on the peaceful landscape (even in the bathtub) and there is also a swing in the tree in front of the house (not only for the kids;-)). Our kids (1 and 4 years old) loved playing in the garden.
We felt at home and will definitely come back again!!
Thank you Cher and Toby for this place on earth and your hospility!
