Additional Location Information
GREAT LOCATION - Remote yet totally acessible
Passareiro is within easy reach of Lisbon (about 1hr), Sintra and the coast by motorway so you can easily get do a day trip and have the best of both worlds! You will need to rent a car to get around and explore the area, although most find their good intentions evaporate once they get near the pool!
There is plenty to do in the area. The Alentejo is extremely beautiful and you will be in the heart of its stunning landscapes and rural pace of life. Nearby is the famous town of Evora - a Unesco World Heritage jewel, with a splendid Roman temple and Roman remains which can be seen throughout the whitewashed cobbled streets. There is also a range of great restaurants and wineries in town as well as closer to home.
You will also be welcome to walk on the estate and soak in the beautiful scenery of ancient cork forests and vineyards. There are some great spots for picnics and if you are lucky you might spot eagles and other bird life. We are located within a Natura 2000 area for natural biodiversity and wildlife and actively participate in local conservation schemes.
EXCELLENT SERVICE - self catering at its best - and you can cheat if you want to!
Most of our guests book Passareiro on a self catering basis, but it's worth remembering that even as such, we offer a very high level of service. As described below, maid service is included in your stay but in fact you can have as much service as you like.
Sandra our housekeeper will be there every (bar Sundays) to do a general tidy up throughout the house and pool, replenish the wood (or coal for the bbq in summer) and make your bed made for you. She can also be booked for extra hours to help in the kitchen to prepare meals or babysit if you want to go out.
For those who really don't want to lift a finger, we work with a great private chef who can be booked for you during your stay, or to arrange a special meal. He can also give informal cooking classes in the kitchen for those who are interested.
Simple home cooked meals on arrival are also available, arranged in advance.
