In the middle of cork oak woods on the outskirts of the little hamlet Escatelares, lies Monte dos Carotos. Five hectares of bush land and pasture surround the peaceful Monte. On arrival let the peace and tranquillity of the Alentejan countryside overwhelm you. Settle in one of the beautiful rooms and relax. Get carried away by the sounds of the birds and horse hoofs shuffling through the pasture. Plunge into the refreshing waters of the Montes private swimming pool overlooking bush and grassland. In the evening cook your own BBQ, walk to a local café for a home cooked meal or go for a fine dining experience three kilometres up the road in Santiago do Cacem. With a smile and speaking five languages, your hostess, Sylvie Veninga will guarantee a pleasurable stay, making you feel right at home.
