“Set in the tranquil rural heart of the Costa Vicentina Natural Park and only 10 kms away to the beach, this generously spread out villa is ideal for large family holidays.”

Originally the site of an old-style ‘taipa’ homestead typical of the region, the villa has since been renovated and extensively modernised into a property that has maintained its traditional feel but welcomes its guests comfortably and generously. 

Modern-day Monte Pegazul features a very spacious open-plan living/dining room and kitchen, with high ceilings and exposed rafters allowing for a feeling of space and light to flow through the house. There are 5 bedrooms in total (3 doubles and 2 twins) three of which are ensuite and one of the twins can be converted into an extra double bedroom.

Keeping the villa cosy during the colder times of the year, there is a wood-burning stove in the main living area and central heating with radiators in every room. 

Just outside the living room is a covered terrace, set out for enjoying long lazy days relaxing with your favourite people. This includes a BBQ area, plus dining and lounging spaces. The large swimming pool enjoys sun exposure all day long and sits to one side of the property with gated access, whilst generous fenced-in grounds all around make it safe for kids to run around freely. There is also a citrus orchard to one side, where you can pick your lemons directly for cocktail hour.

Positioned on a hillside, Monte Pegazul benefits from lovely rural views across the valley below - here you are encouraged to retreat, unwind, and relax in your peaceful surroundings. Songbirds abound in the region and are a joy to listen to, making the location perfect for some switch-off time, but a real spectacle awaits you when the sun starts to drop: the Alentejo’s golden sunsets are legendary as are the star-studded night skies!

The Costa Vicentina features some of the most beautiful beaches in Portugal much loved by surfers, as well as many kms of scenic trails to explore, winding through the natural park. You can find out more about these trails here ( 

The fishing village of Zambujeira do Mar with its dramatic cliff-top position is just a short drive away. Also located nearby is Odemira (an old town of Moorish Heritage) and the charming village of São Teotónio which offers several restaurants, a petrol station, supermarkets, and a municipal fish, veg and meat market.
