Monte do Casarão

Imagine your son going to Portugal to study philosophy while you secretly dream of a life in the sun. During one of your visits, you happen upon a mountain with a typical Alentejo farm with white walls and blue windows surrounded by a large eucalyptus plantation... You imagine yourself sitting there, overlooking the mountains. What do you do? You pack your things and follow your son. This is the story of Wynand and Nel and their stunning holiday location: Monte do Casarão.

'Speaking of a family bond!' I laughed when I saw the Dutch owners. They had followed their son to Portugal a couple of years before. But rather than the Algarve, it had been the province of Alentejo that stole their hearts. ‘It’s more beautiful here, more rugged and unspoiled’, Wynand smiled. ‘We were sold right away.’ Their estate holds six guest accommodations, each on their own mountain. ‘It doesn’t get any more authentic than this’, he smiled while showing me around. The white Alentejo farms and their large living patio and outdoor kitchen basked in the sun. Wynand started to tell me all about the outdoor life and the silence. ‘You unplug and immerse yourself in the Portuguese rural lifestyle'.

After the tour, I grabbed my things, called a couple of good friends and checked into one of the atmospheric little farmhouses at Monte do Casarão. We would enjoy the starry sky on the patio at night and eat in the open kitchen indoors. The only place where I’d encounter other guests was at the saltwater pool. There really is nothing a family bond can’t achieve, I thought. And I unplugged a little more with a smile on my face while the sun was slowly setting behind my very own mountain.

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. 
  • Are you the main driver? Then you must meet the minimum or maximum age requirements as stated in the car rental terms and conditions, have a credit card in your name (including PIN number) and a valid driving license.
