We had a wonderful and relaxing stay at Passareiro! We were a group of 3 families. There was plenty of room and accommodations were comfortable and spacious. The house is well-maintained by the wonderful housekeeper, who was also our babysitter. We greatly appreciated the extra services she provided aside from babysitting, such as the home-cooked meal (delicious!) the day of our arrival, and the grocery shopping, so we would have breakfast the morning after the day of arrival.
The weather was quite hot while we were there, but the house stayed cool during the day. It had all the amenities that we needed, and the pool was beautiful! So refreshing considering the high temps.
We were able to do day trips to Lisbon and to the beach with ease. Evora is very close-by, so there is good access to restaurants.
The owner was very responsive to our needs and she was always quick to respond to our questions and concerns. Our stay was perfect!
The house is wonderful, large, beautifully appointed, very well equipped and feels like home from the moment of arrival. Lots of space inside and out, very relaxing, nice pool and so on. Quite secluded and very quiet. The owner was very responsive and helpful by email before and during the stay. The house keeper was in every morning to clean, set up breakfast and water the plant pots. A chef service is available, which we didn't use as we didn't want to commit to particular evenings, menus etc before arrival. However as we were arriving Saturday evening the owner organised breakfast supplies for the Sunday morning as well as frango and chips ready for our arrival! Just ask and she will organise it. The house is an easy drive from Lisbon (about 1.5 hrs from the airport).
We enjoyed trips to Evora and various neolithic remains in the region. The caves on the way to Escoural were interesting although the actual drawings were quite indistinct and I've seen clearer examples in France. Anyway it's a quick trip and cheap so still worth doing if you are passing. We went on a tour of the cork forests organised by the owner's cousin who runs a nearby estate. That was a couple of hours on the back of an open truck with a guide who was very interesting, spoke excellent English and told us all about cork farming as well as taking us to see the estate vineyards. We really enjoyed that. We were lucky as the corking stripping was actually happening nearby so we got to see them in action. Very skilled and hard work in 40 degree heat. There are plenty of sightseeing and eating out options a short car journey away but the week we were there was very hot (which we like) so we spent a lot of time just relaxing in the house or grounds, and mainly dining on the terrace by the house.
It really is a perfect environment to get away from city life for a while.
Uma excelente estadia de três dias, num monte Alentejano muito bem cuidado, com instalações excelentes.
I didn't think it was possible for Passareiro to be more impressive in real life than it is in the photographs but it is. The bedrooms are all well appointed and gorgeous. The dining room is like something out of Downton Abbey and the outdoor eating area is just the perfect place to relax. Then there's the pool. What a hidden gem. We spent countless hours out there enjoying the wonderful Portuguese sunshine. On top of this fabulous house, the owner, Joana, is super organised and helpful. She was a great resource when I wanted to put together a wine tour of the region, helping me find and communicate with vineyards, organise transport and many other things. The staff onsite are also very friendly. At the last minute the maid, Sandra, looked after our dog so we could spend the day in Lisbon, they made sure the fridge was stocked with everything we needed and kept the place tidy. Overall a fabulous holiday was had at Passareiro.
This was our second trip., having visited last summer. Visited with family, 4 young children. Wonderful place to do very little! Evora is nearby, and good to visit for an evening or two.
