This was our favourite family holiday destination by a long way. We arrived here with our two children (7/8) at the end of October and had the most idyllic 2 week stay. The house was immaculate and the grounds were enormous. The children has lots of freedom, we brought walkie-talkies and they were able to go feed nearby horses, while we 'waited' in the hot tub. There was also a games room, pool, table tennis, darts... we didn't hear 'I'm bored' once! Due to the geography of the house we were able to travel to the west coast, up north to Evora and east to Spain. We also travelled to the south coast a few times, where the children had a beach (Praia de Senhora de Rocha) completely to themselves. Restaurants near the property served fabulous food. The shops in Ourique had everything we needed, though our gracious guests had bought us the essentials so we didn't have to go to the shops until the next day. We floated home with a definite plan to return to this property.
