The little village São Luís is located in the Providence Baixo Alentejo between Cercal and Odemira on the N120-road Lisbon-Algarve, about a 2 hours drive from the airport of Lisbon as well as the airport of Faro and only 15 min. away from the coast. Our house is located at the edge of the town and is very easy to reach. Between São Luís and the coast lies the beautiful nature reserve Parque Natural Sudoest Alentejano Costa Vicentina, a perfect place for quiet nature-walks. The nearest beach-town is Vila Nova de Milfontes, mainly occupied with portuguese tourists, where you can find lots of lovely restaurants. It has only some hotels and campsites. Here the river Mira, the cleanest river of Europe, ends in the Atlantic Ocean. Here you'll find beautiful beaches, on the river-shore as well as on the Ocean-shore. Perfect environment for who likes hiking, horsebackriding, surfing, etc.
Quinta "As duas oliveiras"
We have built our house "As duas oliveiras" in 2006. We've choosen this name because of the two olive-trees at the entrance. Our terrain covers 0,8ha and we have a variety of animals; dogs, cats, chicken, pigs and rabbits. You have to be a real animal-lover, because our 4 cats and 4 dogs will, out of curiosity, surely visit you every now and then..., but lately our gasthouse has its own entrance and is completely fenched so they won't be on your doorstep directly.
On site is a swimming-pool (7,5 x 4m) which off course is free to use. Our property is about a 5 minute walk from the center of the town. The roads are in good condition.
