Nice location and lovely host
Susanna is a lovely host Location was perfect, Nice view on the lake and the Castle of Monsaraz. Good swimming pool Cute animals around Beautiful sky at night
Excellent stay and care
Excellent service and the care taken by the owners to make sure we had a lovely time there. We also loved to see the wide range of animals and were treated to beautiful dark sky exploration.
Location, staff, animals
Reminds you about what is good in the world!
Owners Vasco and Sussanah were incredibly helpful when our hire car broke down. Felt like they treated us as one of the family. They went above and beyond to make our trip comfortable! Wonderful hosts
Lovely place and so, so quiet
Look at the stars! Listen to sheep, donkeys, birds and cows-nothing more. You can see Monsaraz from the breakfastroom window! Loved the breakfast 👍
Wonderful place to stay
We stayed here for two nights whilst exploring Monsaraz and the surrounding area. The rooms are large and individually furnished with large beds and good sized bathrooms. Vasco and Suzanna are welcoming and friendly hosts, nothing being too much trouble. They have amassed a menagerie of animals which they have rescued over the years which adds to the charm. It is a peaceful place to stay for a relaxing break with good opportunities for star gazing at night. A good continental breakfast is provided which completes the package.
Wonderful setting. Awesome area. Friendly host. Cool animals.
Hard hard bed
Beautiful place. Great hosts
Because the place is so quiet, you can hear a bit of noise from the corridors and living room when inside the bedroom.
The location is absolutely wonderfull and the facilities are well taken care off. If you don't like animals please don't go there, because there are plenty of them and they're gorgeous! We just spent hours looking at them.
The owners are really welcoming, the view from the house is incredible and with all the animals...
The view, the animals, the owners
The location, the facility, all the surrounding nature and the amazing animal in the property. But above all the staff and the owners. By far the best place and experience I add in Alentejo since I stated coming on holiday, twice a year for the last 5 years. Will return every year.
The location. Excellent views of the fort and the lake. Very professional landlady. Excellent breakfast.
An amazing find
There is nothing we didn't like about this place. Our room and the bathroom were spotless, bed was comfortable and we loved the view. Location is great both for star gazing and Monsaraz. We love the Alentejo and we would definitely stay at Monte Santa Catarina again. Owners were absolutely delightful. We had such a good time.
Magical Place with Castle View and Royal Treatment
The owner was helpful, welcoming, and super friendly. She and her family have created a magical place to share with others. It is filled with interesting animals, beautiful spaces in the garden to sit and have private moments, as well as wonderful sitting areas inside with books and refreshments.
Just a pity that we couldnt stay longer because of our plans to go to Lissabon the next day
Amazing ambiance and great staff, Susanne and Anna. Hospitality is great
