The pictures on this site don't do justice to the real beauty of this property. The rooms are comfortable and clean with everything that you and your family need. Comfortable beds and a great shower! The pool area is just stunning and diligently cleaned and maintained by Marco; it was fun for the children to be able to play badminton, football, jump on the trampoline or just walk up the stunning hill opposite the house. We were also lucky enough to see the beautiful snake in the pond (don't worry if you don't like snakes, he stays in the pond!) It's a real gem of a hideaway to relax in for a week or so and it is clear that Marco and Charlotte are keen to ensure that everything is perfect for their visitors. There are three cafes/restaurants in the immediate area and the supermarket is about 20 minutes away, but there's a smaller shop nearby for essentials. We really enjoyed our stay.
My wife and I were privileged to stay at Cerca da Ponte for 9 nights as part of a five week visit to Alentejo for early season cycling. In 19 years of independent cycling holidays in Europe this unique and authentic offering just outside of 7,400 person Almodovar stands out as one of the most well kept, ultra organised and fully featured spacious offerings.
It is an ideal base for April-May cycling, bird watching in world famous Castro Verde or day trips to the Algarve.... all very close. The Silva family has such superb standards of care and hospitality.... we received a very thoughtful welcome gift and even a special Valentines Day offering........ amazing!
The home is a richly appointed Alentejan farm house that is beautifully decorated. The thought and care put into this home is outstanding. It is very spacious and can sleep up to 8-9 people. Space is not often the norm in European accommodation. Every detail is taken care of.
We loved our cycling through the Alentejan countryside...... vacant roads and lovely early season climbs in the Serra west of Almodovar.... a great start to the season for our Canadian legs.
Almodovar is a very authentic Southern Alentejan town. It has a gorgeous municipal market and well stocked modern supermarket. We loved watching village life away from the heavily built up Algarve coast with its mass tourism. This is the real Portugal.
Highly recommended.....especiallly for April-May independent travels or October-November... both time slots offer ideal stable not too hot weather.
An absolute gem for independent travellers in Southern Alentejo.
