Monte Azul is in the Alentejo Coast region, very near the Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park, that is the finest preserved stretch of European coastline, covering over 100 km, from Porto Covo (in the Alentejo) to Burgau (in the Algarve).
The landscape is marked by steep cliffs. There is a tremendous variety of beaches, including long stretches of sand and small beaches nestled between the cliffs and rocks. The long list includes beaches such as Porto Covo, Ilha do Pessegueiro, Malhão, Vila Nova de Milfontes, Almograve, Monte Clérigo, Arrifana and Praia do Amado. If you have the energy and desire to stray from the beaten track, albeit with difficult access, it’s possible to discover many other beaches that have been preserved in a virtually unspoilt state...
Several activities can be practiced both inside and outside the property.
And at night you can see a beautiful starry sky as only the Alentejo has... :-)
The house is between Portocovo and V.N. Milfontes, in a rural area, 5 minutes away from a reservoir dam, inside a 35.000 m2 property. The house, lawn, sheds, barbecue and pool are located in a walled area with 1.900m2, and are for private and exclusive use of the house's guests. The pool is salt water, is in operation throughout the year and for private use (9,83 x 4,07 mt, minimum depht 1,20 mt/ maximum depth 2,00 mt).
Around the location favors the contact with a broad historical and cultural heritage.
In the fantastic dam Barragem Fonte Serne at five minutes of the property, you can practice water sports. Fishing, sailing, canoeing or windsurfing await you. If you prefer salt water, you are located near a diversity of beaches. From the bustle of Vila Nova de Milfontes, to the warm waters of St.Torpes, in the middle is a pearl of the Portuguese's beaches - the Malhão.
Ah ... and Porto Covo! Included in the Natural Park of Southwest Alentejo, Porto Covo is a fishing village and tourist attraction for its history, nature, tranquility and, in addition for its legendary island - the Ilha do Pessegueiro.
If you lack some equipment to travel to these places or to practice any activity,we have an extensive list of optional equipment that can be offered (canoes, bikes, all-terrain vehicles).
However, if the aim is just rest, the property offers you silence and peace and if it gets too hot, plunge into the blue of the pool!
