Cottages

“Bit of luck”

“How did you ever manage to find this?” all our guests ask when they first come to us for their holidays, impressed by nature, the quiet and the breath-taking views. “Well”, we tend to answer, “you need to look for it, don’t you, and you need a bit of luck”.
Eight years ago, we fell head over heels in love with Monte do Casarão. The monte “of the big House” lies smack in the middle of an impressive scenic area, far from the madding crowd and the traffic. By now, there are six houses, (unpaved) roads, there’s a swimming pool and there’s electricity, water, telephone and Internet. What makes Monte do Casarão really special is that all the houses have been built on mountains of their own, scattered across the monte. As a result, you’ll soon experience an optimal sense of freedom and peace.
In one of these houses, Casarão Velho, we have permanently reserved for ourselves. It also features as a group space. Casa Basta, Casa Marcanta, Casa Boa and Casa Valorosa have been designed for the holiday goer. Casarão Novo is available in special cases.
Below, you’ll find all the houses together at a glance. You can also find us on Google maps. For your satnav or GPS, you can enter the following coordinates: W 8° 36′ 25″; N 37° 28′ 15″

DECEMBER

 

December. Month of cheerfulness and fun, month of family, parties and presents. And of pops and firecrackers and roman candles and some heavier elements. In the Netherlands at least.
Not here in Portugal. New Year´s eve, than there are pops and cracks. Controlled pops. Then there are fireworks everywhere, for example in Zambujeira do Mar.
You get value for money. You can enjoy fireworks twice. You see the fireworks in the sky and their reflections in the ocean, a spectacular and fascinating sight.
