Almodovar, Beja District, Alentejo
Cerca da Ponte is the name of this traditional villa from Alentejo, rustically decorated, in a property of 2hectares, put entirely at our guests’ disposal.
It’s Located in a high hill with a spectacular view over the mountains of Serra do Caldeirão and over the village Almodôvar. It’s the perfect place to have some relax, go for a walk or a bicycle tour, and discover the delights of Alentejo.
From the big porch, the garden or the swimming pool, is possible to enjoy the wonderful view, in a quiet, reserved place, suitable for a rest in the privacy of nature. The village is fairly close, by car, bicycle or even by walk.
From less than 1h driving, you’ll find the famous beautiful beaches of Algarve and its agitated night life.

The house is fully equipped, has a living room with TV, dining room, big fireplace, kitchen with dishwasher, micro...

A lovely spot on the outskirts of Almodôvar, looking out over the town. Quiet, except for the many birds and the evening dog barking which you seem to get all over Portugal.

The house has all the expected facilities, including wifi, a barbecue, and several bikes. It also has a pleasant swimming pool, plenty warm enough to be used in mid-April which is when we visited.

Very helpful owners with good English, who always answered queries in detail within 24 hours while we were deciding whether to book.

We can highly recommend the Almodôvar Cafe / Restaurant, which is fortunately the nearest place to the house to eat - a ten minute walk, or three minutes by car. Friendly service, the cooking is good and the portions are enormous - many single dishes are more than enough for two people sharing. We can particularly recommend the arroz de bacalhau com camarões and the chocolate mousse. After your meal you can stroll to the medieval bridge from which the house gets...

We stayed two weeks here and it's perfect, very easy to find we where met by the owners whom where very nice indeed very helpful.
All facilities there and working, pots n pans all good, tv and sound system all good.
The area is not over looked and you have no neighbours as such so the name of the is relax!!
It has a very nice covered veranda which is fab to eat out on but we had to take a couple of wooden chairs out from the utility room there are metal seats there but to be honest me botty hasn't been that small for years and didn't think Ryanair would appreciate me bringing my own seat.
The pool well outstanding. ... and large loved it still swimming at 18:30 ideal.
Most windows have mozzie screens so you can actually open them and the flying beasts can't get in. . Result!
There is actually 3 supermarkets in town a pingo and cheaper local one by the round a bout on the way into town from castro verdie and a very local one centre of town, the town itself...
