Montimerso SkyScape Country House

I had been eagerly awaiting this moment: I was about to visit Montimerso Skyscape Country House. Catarina & Henrique, the proud owners, had sent me a beautiful personal postcard to invite me. They asked me to stay at their unique Country house for a couple of days, right at the centre of a gorgeous natural reserve called Alqueva in the picturesque region on Alentejo. An invitation I was happy to accept! I took my rental car and left the coast behind, passing rolling hills, fields full of cork trees and sleepy towns. I passed the reservoir of Alqueva and could see Montimerso Skyscape Country Escape in the distance: a timeless place where life seems to slow down.

Catarina & Henrique gave me a warm welcome as soon as I arrived. They had left behind their busy lives in Lisbon to design their ideal Country House in this perfect location. They managed to create a magnificent spot that breathes a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Catarina’s grand tour left me speechless. Such a gorgeous, light interior. I felt right at home...

The holiday location of my dreams! What a place to unwind and enjoy nature, local cuisine and a breathtaking starry sky.

The suite is nice and spacious with vibrant bohemian colours and a patio with a view of the vast estate. I couldn’t wait to enjoy some local wine here. What would the next day bring? Would I be cycling to Monsaraz, like Henrique had recommended? Or was I going to take a refreshing dip in the infinity pool? I was excited about all the beauty I was about to discover. One thing is for sure: this is a unique place in Portugal where boredom is out of the question...

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options.
