Excellent stay in lovely cottage in the countryside full of birds and bees
We had a wonderful stay at Vicky and Keiths cottage. Excellent base for a for a birdwatching or leisure trip. Although the cottage is close to Vicky and Keiths house, the cottage has plenty of privacy but Vicky and Keith are close by and available to answer your questions or provide information about the surroundings. The kids enjoyed the swimming pool a lot. On the terrain there are lots of birds (larks, bee eaters, storks, even rednecked nightjar), and the Castro Verde plains, with bustards, rollers and sandgrouse amongst others, are close by.
superb rural retreat with wonderful pool and super friendly and helpful owner
We were met by Michael the owner at the supermarket in Ourique about 10 minutes or so from the cottage. After a short drive we arrived at the superbly equipped and spotlessly clean cottage which far exceeded all our expectations. Having devoured the very well stocked welcome pack of food and wine we explored the lovely cottage grounds complete with beautiful plants and amazing pool and we soon realised that this time we really had hit the jackpot for a place to stay. The weather was superb the week we were there and although it was tempting to stay at home by the pool all day taking our meals on each the three patios around the house (following the sun), we ventured out into the rural unspoiled Alentejo countryside to explore. We weren't disappointed with day trips to the Atlantic coast, Beja and Mertola being particularly enjoyable. The local supermarket was very well stocked, particularly with seafood and wine, which was very reasonably priced, and the local cafes served up excellent coffee (cappuccinos around a pound). Michael the owner was brilliant - friendly and helpful but never intrusive. All in all a fantastic unforgettable holiday. Thanks so much Michael. We will be back.
Tim thank you for writing a lovely review.
It was my pleasure to welcome you to the wonderful location I happily call my home
Seeing your Mum David and you relaxed throughout your stay and your mention that all here exceeded your expectations will help any potential new guests when considering their many different options about staying in the Alentajo
Once again thank you for choosing to stay in Casa Sossegda and I look forward to welcoming here again
You won't want to leave
Vicky and Mike have created an tranquil ecological paradise outside of Ourique. They are wonderful hosts: charming, generous and helpful, just who you wish you had as neighbors at home. The cottage is clean, very generously equipped, and more than big enough for two adults and two teenagers. It even comes supplied with plenty to eat and drink upon arrival! The location is great for excursions, but don't plan on too many. You will want to watch sunrises and sunsets, take long morning and evening walks through the area, and go for an afternoon swim in your own private pool. Be sure not to miss the spectacular night sky!
Thank you both for all your very kind words We naturally love every moment we spend here It is however the great responses we regularly receive from our guests that reminds us just how lucky we are to be living here
We want to live there!
This is a very special place, which feels a a bit like Shangri La. You probably won't understand how truly special it is until you get home.
The cottage is lovely, with everything that we needed, and is set in what could be your own private nature reserve or park.
The sun rises over the lake in front of the cottage and sets on the hills behind the secluded swimming pool. You can watch both from different sitting areas, in the company of nesting swallows or the resident geckos and lizards.
If you want to get back to the simple life Casa Sossagado is just about perfect.
Although Mike and Vicky live on site their house is out of sight of the cottage. They are the best hosts you could ask for, ably supported by their dogs and cats who sometimes stop by on their own to make sure that you're OK.
We love the area and enjoy exploring the local towns and seaside resorts, which haven't been spoilt by the excesses of the tourist trade.
We've been lucky enough to visit for three years running and will certainly be returning again.
Thank you Simon and Erica for your kind review It is so helpful to potential new guests to learn much about the area and features they hope really do exist from the website information We as the owners love sharing our guest cottage with like minded people who appreciate this unique location We hope that it will soon be time for your return when you will notice some more little changes

April Visit 2016
What a wonderful surprise when we stepped out of our car at the 'cottage' near Ourique, 360 degrees of stunning views and a great welcome from Mike & Vicky. We felt so relaxed in the very comfortable, well equipped cottage and extensive grounds with a lake and pool. Mike & Vicky were only too pleased (but never intrusive) to give us ideas for visits to interesting places locally, point us in the right direction for eating places or easy routes to the coast. There's much wildlife and birdwatching to be had here in the grounds and throughout the surrounding area.
Really looking forward to another visit.
Thank you Peter and Judith for your very kind words We very much enjoyed your time spent with us and are delighted that you share our love of this special place It is such a joy to see new guests smile as they try to absorb the surrounding views when leaving their car We look forward to being able to welcome both of you at some future time
The perfect tranquil getaway.
What a truly wonderful way to spend 10 days in Portugal. We wanted to mark my 60th in peace and a bit of warmth. The cottage, a fully equipped home from home, is set in wonderful country side. Even though our Sat Nav was able to get us ten metres from the door, Mike met us in Ourique to guide us there. The last 2 km, on unsurfaced road, reinforced the air of remoteness (once the dust settled). On entering the charming cottage we were welcomed by spacious, clean & comfortable accommodation, as well as complementary bread, butter, milk, tea, coffee, fruit & home grown vegetables. On! & some beer.
Then it happened. The sun rose over the lake. The breeze rustled through the Eucalyptus Forrest. While the rabbits & birds scurried through the early morning mist. The beautiful gardens & pool area are bordered by sympathetically managed wild grass & scrub land.
We could have spent the whole time in these beautiful surroundings but we had to pop into the local market to get essential supplies. Wine & beer.
Mike & Vicky, along with their pet cats & dogs (cast of Fawty Towers) were the perfect hosts, offering help & advise but never intrusive.
We came home with many happy memories & a determination to return.
Rannikko / Beach:
Algarven rannat ovat noin 50 minuutin ajomatkan päässä, samoin kuin länsirannikon usein vähemmän kiireiset rannat ja lahtia, jotka paikalliset suosivat perinteisesti.
Lähin lentokenttä on Faro, joka on 95 km: n päässä. Vuokra-auto on välttämätöntä.
Lähin kaupunki on Ourique noin 10 minuutin ajomatkan päässä. Tärkeimmät lähimmät kaupungit ovat Beja, joka on 60 km Ouriquesta pohjoiseen tai Albufeiraan, joka on noin 65 km etelään ja on lähin Algarven kaupunki.
Jos sinusta tuntuu ajaessanne edelleen, Evora sijaitsee noin 1 tunnin ja 40 minuutin päässä, mutta on matkan arvoinen, ja se on yksi Portugalin suurimmista historiallisista kaupungeista. Ouriquesta pääsee myös linja-autolla suoraan Lissaboniin, jos haluat päivän.
Ouriquessa on 3 pankkia, 2 pääkaupunkia ja terveyskeskus sekä useita ravintoloita, joissa tarjoillaan perinteistä ruokaa.
