Monte das Oliveiras
"Countryside peace and tranquility with plenty of private open spaces to roam, but only 15 mins from the coast." - Reviewed by Ticha
The most arresting qualities about this large family home are the peace and tranquility that surround it.
Monte das Oliveiras is located at the top of a hill in a very private estate with panoramic country views. Hidden away on a curving country road in Alentejo, the notion of space and the lovely quiet places to walk, hike and explore immediately put you at peace.
With lovely grassy lawns, a large swimming pool, fresh breezes and acres upon acres in which to roam, this home is the ideal getaway for large families or groups of friends. Cork and, as you’d expect, olive trees surround – yet a short drive along pleasant country lanes easily brings you to one of Alentejo’s best swimming beaches. Venture a little further afield and the hip destination of Comporta is ready for exploring, too.
The modern home has a certain ambiguity… a traditional peach and white exterior but a contemporary, clean-lined interior.
The oversized great room is decked out with lots of cushy sofas, a large contemporary fireplace feature and dining table. It opens out to the patio which offers a swimming pool, grassy lawns and exceptional hill-top vistas.
This is a home for all year living – cozy in winter with its large fireplace and under-floor heating, yet breezy and cool in summer. No matter what the season, you’re surrounded by stunning sights to see and fun activities in which to indulge…or not!
