We had a wonderful time at Luminoso. We enjoyed very much the cosy house, the fireplace, the very well kept surroundings, the silence, the rustic area, being close to the animals (horses, sheep, cows,...), the nice walks and the light and the sun. Charlotte and Hans were very pleasant hosts. Our daughters also liked very much these short vacations in deep Alentejo. We hope to come back in another time and we will talk about this lovely spot to our friends as well.
Charlotte was a dream to deal with right from the start. Replied to the emails and questions we had very quickly. The directions that she sent us were perfect and very helpful. The house was super clean and comfortable with everything you could need for a relaxing time in Alentejo. It was our honeymoon and the Charlotte went above and beyond. The pool, views and terraces were lovely and we will be back! Thank you so much for sharing your Alentejo retreat with us.
We had a wonderful time at Luminoso, the place is great, extremely well equipped and the pool is excellent. It's a bit isolated (you won't be able to see anything during the night except the stars) but that suits us just fine. Charlotte was lovely and made us feel right at home, great place for kids as they can walk around freely outside. 10/10 would recommend
This is one of those places that you'd almost want to give a bad review just so that no other people will come and you can keep it all to yourself ;) But let's be honest: this place is amazing, and so are is Charlotte. She did all she could to give us a peaceful holiday, lending us her binoculars to birdwatch, offering air matresses for the pool etc. The house is new and well-equipped, the wifi is strong, there's a satellite TV, the views are absolutely breathtaking and so is the private pool. There's great opportunities for families with children as well, e.g. horse riding, patting the dogs etc. The neighborhood is very remote but in a good way (gorgeous fields everywhere you look), and after about 3 km dirtroad you arrive at a very accessible road which takes you to the beach and quaint little whitewashed towns in about 1-1,5 hours. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for some time to get away from it all, swim, relax, enjoy the sunsets. We will be back someday!
Response from Charlotte:
dear Margot thank you so much for your review. You went to the trouble writing so extensively, I appreciate this very much and am glad that you enjoyed your stay here in Luminoso. As I said in my review, you are wonderful guests and I am looking forward to meeting you again!
