The House of the Malvas is a piece of Olympus in the middle of Alentejo, where you can hear the song of the water, listen to the trilogy of goldfinches and sparrows, feel the soft whistle of white storks and guess the fragrance of rosemary and mint, lavender and rose, in a mess of colors and species. In it an appetizing peace and a sweet well-being are fraternized.
“House very clean and comfortable. There is everything you need to cook, plus a 2-minute walk (without hurrying), there is the Pingo Doce store, and 3 minutes away, the Bom Dia Continent store. After 3 km there is a large Intermarché, with machines for washing clothes and you can also refuel the car. Very nice pool, very clean water and incredible transparency, really makes you want to swim !! It is a small town very famous for its olive oil, and with nice people. I thank D. Cristina who was very kind when we arrived to go around the house and give us the keys. I also thank o Sr. Joaquim who is always available 7 days a week on airbnb messaging, we can ask questions with the certainty of having an answer quickly. I recommend this accommodation to spend a beautiful holiday.”

“Our stay with Alexandre and Maria was a truly unexpected and magical experience. We come from a small town in Canada so being remote was a very comfortable feeling for us. The drive to the village of Bens was through rolling hills filled with small farms of new baby sheep and cows, and around every bend another small, whitewash village with bright red clay tiles. Alexandre greeted us with a smile that we soon realized was always on his face, quickly met Maria and the magic began. You need a car to get there, but with the car we easily went to Huelva, Spain for lunch and back in time to cook or go to the restaurant in the next town 2 km away. Cooking facility is excellent. With some fresh herbs, garlic, lemons and olives from Maria (all from their garden) I managed to whip up a lovely Garlic Lemon Chicken in the oven. You need to get there to experience it.”

“We had a wonderful week in very charming apartment in the beautiful surroundings! The apartment is furnished with great attention to detail and was equipped with everything you need. Everything was very clean. From the terrace we had a wonderful view of the pastures with sheep, their bells bang, very romantic. Since we were there in November, it was already quite cool in the evening. Pedro's father supplied us with firewood as needed. The family was very nice and showed us everything and explained when we had questions. The contact was easy and very nice. We were certainly not there for the last time, the apartment is exceptionally beautiful!”
