Portugal

A holiday in Portugal is almost as much a staple of the European holiday diet as France, Italy or Spain. Get away from the beaches and golf courses of the Algarve and the handsome old cities of Lisbon and Porto, however, and another side of the country can be seen: beautifully wild and rugged, much of it stands as one of the last undiscovered corners of Western Europe.

But it’s to the Algarve that the majority of holidaymakers planning a Portugal villa holiday will head – and they’ll do so for its beaches, world-class golf courses and some of the best holiday homes and villas in Portugal. And whether it’s beach apartments and luxury villas in Lagos on the golf course, beach villas in Albufeira near the sea or holiday apartments in Vale do Lobo suitable for the family, our selection of Algarve villas and holiday homes has something for everybody.

    Herdade da Giblaceira has been a household estate for more than 400 years in the village of Montemor O Novo, at about 95km. from Lisbon and 36km from the former royal city of Evora in the countryside of Alentejo. The estate is situated in a valley at an altitude of 260m., in a valley of the Serra de Monfurada, surrounded by mauresque gardens, an olive orchard, a reservoir and about 200 hectares of cork oaks, where cow and sheep pasture. When the Dutch owners acquired the property, it was a ruin, which they completely restaured to its original state in 2005. The farm is divided into 7 terraced cottages, of which one is used occassionally by the owners. The Herdade is provided with a beautiful communal swimming pool (10x20m.) with a small diving-board and Roman stairs,
    where non-swimmers can also bathe delightfully. There is a communal laundry-room and the owners can arrange several activities for you (jeepsafari's, flight tours in ultra-light aircrafts). Swimming and fishing is possible in the nearby reservoir, measuring 4 hectares. The farm is in full swing, with 150 cows and bulls and 1200 sheep, lambing throughout the whole year. The barns and tractors are at 500m from the Herdade. Montemor O Novo is about 7km from the estate and the small village of Reguengo disposes of a minimarket, a post-office and 2 café's serving light meals. Every 2nd
    Saturday of the month, a gipsy market takes place. In May and September
    'feira's' are held; a sort of fair with loads of activities. Once a week, a cattle-auction of national importance takes place in Montemor.
    The last 3 km of the access road to Giblaceira is not asphalted but is always kept in good condition by the owners who use this road daily.
