O Ninho (Apartment)

Sleeps up to: 2   (1 bedrooms)
Nearest beach: Beach: 60 Km Notes: Not suitable for infants
Home description
Welcome to our Monte. It is the ideal place to have some 'me' time. Get away from the pressures of modern life and step back 30 years. The self catering apartment forms part of the Monte which had been sympathetically restored with beams and feather board ceilings; thick walls that insulate, having a cooling effect in the summer whilst retaining the heat when the log burner is stoked up in the colder months. Open the triple paned french doors in the lounge and let in the sun. The other rooms have stable doors where you can watch the storks' nest. All windows and doors have fitted flyscreens. There is a private garden area at the back but you are welcome to wander on the Monte's 5 acres . The Monte's garden area has been landscaped with the Mediterranean plants that flourish here. There are views over the rolling plains with the cork trees; the sound of the farm animals and wildlife; the beautiful sunsets; and blue skies.
Ourique area
Ourique the local town is 5 mins drive away and has orange tree lined streets and an observation point (miradouro) situated in the castle at the highest point showing outstanding 360 degree views.
Vineyards: there are local vineyards if you wish to taste the local Alentejo wines which are becoming more popular worldwide. The brown road signs with ‘Adega’ will direct you.
Gastronomy: there are many tasty cheeses to enjoy, some served with honey for starters with the homemade breads. The black pig ‘preto porco’ is an Alentejo speciality and the alfresco barbecued Chicken 'frango' also has it's own delicious flavour. If you like olives there are many varieties to try. Unlike the more expensive coastal areas food is very good value for money. You can buy wines in the supermarket for around 1.50 euros and less. A bottle of beer in a café is about 80 cents. A meal will cost about 9 euros. Local activities include fishing, swimming, horse riding, local festas and feiras, bird watching, hiking, historic monuments, walking.
