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...
