My husband and I stayed in Blue Lar for a week in June. We loved it! The house is cozy, clean and small, but has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We spent the entire day hiking to fantastic beaches and at the end of the day we relaxed at the Blue Lar. There is a nice BBq grill (not gas, but wood!), which we used a couple of times successfully! There is also a well maintained pool area, just for the Blue Lar guests. The region is dry and hot in June, but there is always a nice breeze at the Blue Lar. In addition to be the perfect spot for us, we were also very pleased with Juan and Taina's hospitality. They live next door and they are very friendly and helpful. Taina explained all about the house and Juan provided us lots of info about weather, tides, hiking trails, canoe trip, restaurants and best wines of the region! We followed some of his suggestions for hiking trails, beaches, food, wines and we loved! We are planning to go back some day and certainly we recommend this place to everyone who loves to stay in the country and enjoys tranquility.
As travelers, we enjoy a peaceful quiet setting and this lovely cottage provided exactly that, but much more. The beautiful setting in the Alentejo region offered such lovely views of the hillside surrounding this property and the deck, complete with hammocks and comfortable seating invited us outdoors every morning and evening. We walked directly out our door and could hike for an hour or two just taking in the fields and countryside. Antonio was a host who went well above and beyond to make our stay perfect. He gave us tips and suggestions tailored to our own interests. The nearby town of Cercal provided all our shopping needs but Vila Nova de Milfonts, was also close enough for a more extensive shopping experience. We drove to the Algarve for a doable day trip. This cottage was all we could have hoped for and more, and we highly recommend it to future travelers.
