Arroccato su una collina su una quinta, di proprietà dei monaci domenicani, il casale è una base tranquilla per esplorare la campagna di Alentejo, conveniente per molte deliziose destinazioni diurne (vedi "Il quartiere"). Più vicino a casa, rilassarsi in piscina, passeggiare nell'ultimo oliveto di 15 ettari, grigliare sul patio, o passeggiare per la bella cittadina fortificata del patrimonio mondiale di Elvas, a pochi minuti di distanza.

Perched on a hill on a quinta once owned by Dominican monks, the cottage is a tranquil base for exploring the Alentejo countryside, convenient for many delightful day-trip destinations (see "The Neighborhood"). Closer to home, relax by the pool, stroll in the 15-hectare olive grove, grill on the patio, or wander around the lovely World Heritage fortress town of Elvas, a few minutes away.


Our quinta is perched on a hilltop, with views over oranges and old olive trees to the mountains of Spain. At night, the stars are bright, and the lights of Olivenza, Spain, shine against the distant mountains. The music of sheep bells competes with the songs of birds (hoopoes, bee eaters, tawny and little owls, and nightingales, depending on the season) and the occasional crow of the neighbors' rooster. Our 15-hectare olive grove is a magical place to explore, and a valuable wildlife habitat.

The cottage is set a little back from the other buildings in the quinta's courtyard, making it very private. Its sheltered patio offers a view past the quinta's entrance arch toward the mountains of Spain. Windows at the back in the kitchen and living room look out into an olive grove where sheep graze.

At one side of the patio is the forno (bread oven; much like a tandoori oven or traditional pizza oven) for which the cottage is named, and which was once used by all the inhabitants of the quinta. (There is a smaller grill for you to use more conveniently!) The garden in front of the cottage contains rosemary and other herbs as well as roses, geraniums, a fig tree, and much more.

The cottage was remodeled in 2015, with entirely new wiring, roof, windows, tile, heating and air conditioning, and plumbing, but retains its original charm. Its thick stone walls and double-glazed windows—equipped with pull-down netting to keep out insects while letting in the cool night air—make it quiet, comfortable, and energy efficient.

The living room is furnished comfortably with a sofa and armchair and a small wood-burning stove (we provide wood). The eat-in kitchen is well equipped with refrigerator, dishwasher, stove, microwave, and everything needed for basic cooking and dining. The table in the kitchen can be extended to seat four.

The bedroom has a double bed, a chest of drawers, and a place to hang up clothes (with hangers). The sofa in the living room opens to a comfortable double mattress—however, the living room is the entrance room, and not very private, so the cottage is best suited to a couple with children, or good friends who don't need a lot of privacy.

Both kitchen and bathroom are decorated with hand-painted reproduction 17th- and 18th-century azulejos from Viuva Lamego in Lisbon.

Accesso ospiti

Gli ospiti potranno esplorare i giardini di Quinta Veloso, il boschetto aranceto e l'oliveto organizzato, che copre quasi 15 ettari, con migliaia di alberi e alcune viste spettacolari, un posto meraviglioso per un pic-nic. Fogli, arance, limoni, lime, mandorle, noci, uva, melograni, loquati e prugne possono essere utilizzati per la raccolta, a seconda della stagione, nell'arancio. Il giardino orto quasi sempre (URL HIDDEN) dagli ospiti può utilizzare; Naturalmente le verdure variano con le stagioni, ma non c'è tempo dell'anno senza alcuni prodotti freschi. Dopo aver nuotato in piscina, potresti salire nella casa di piscine o la nora (un mulino arabo e la casa delle mulini), giocare a bocce nel colonnato di vite e rosa, o avere un bicchiere di vino accanto a un piccolo Piscina ornamentale nel laranjal (arancio boschetto). La piscina è di 5 x 10 metri, con facili passi verso l'estremità bassa, ed è abbastanza profonda all'estremità opposta. La casa della piscina è un luogo comodo per bere o leggere, con un riscaldatore di propano all'aperto per riscaldare fresche mattine o serate all'inizio della primavera o della tarda festa. Forniamo gli asciugamani da spiaggia nella piscina per gli ospiti. La piscina e la piscina sono spesso spazi sociali, condivisi con noi e con il nostro figlio, e talvolta con i nostri ospiti o con i volontari WWOOF (Worldwide Workers on Organic Farms) che ci aiutano in alcuni mesi, ma se vuoi privacy, Basta farci sapere quali sono i momenti in cui ti piacerebbe avere te stesso. L'alleo che porta alla nora (pozzo moresco, con una cisterna impressionante e una ruota idraulica guidata da mulo) è dove ci piace giocare a bocce. Abbiamo anche un set di croquet. L'olival è un posto meraviglioso per passeggiare, correre, fare un pic-nic (possiamo fornire una coperta da pic-nic o sedie pieghevoli), dormire all'ombra o semplicemente vagare. Ci sono viste di Elvas e delle sue fortificazioni e di Spagna dalla cima, e cistus e lavanda crescono selvaggiamente tra le rocce. Le nostre pecore offrono una presenza tranquilla con le loro campane. Quando la combustione è ammissibile (caduta attraverso la primavera), possiamo organizzare un fuoco da fuoco fra gli ulivi. Ottobre è la stagione di raccolta delle olive, e un tempo occupato sulla quinta, con i lavoratori portoghesi e volontari WWOOF aiutare. Gli ospiti possono osservare la vendemmia o addirittura essere in grado di partecipare. C'è una bottiglia del nostro eccellente olio d'oliva da raccolto in prima serata e da raccogliere per poter utilizzare. (Ulteriori bottiglie sono disponibili per la vendita, se ti piace e vuoi prendere qualche casa.)

Guests may explore Quinta Veloso's gardens, orange grove, and organically managed olive grove, which covers nearly 15 hectares, with thousands of trees and some spectacular views—a wonderful place for a picnic. Figs, oranges, lemons, limes, almonds, walnuts, grapes, pomegranates, loquats, and plums may be had for the picking, depending on the season, in the orange grove. The vegetable garden almost always has produce guests may use; of course the vegetables vary with the seasons, but there is no time of the year without some fresh produce.

After swimming in the pool, you might lounge in the pool house or the nora (a Moorish mule-driven waterwheel and well house), play boules in the grapevine- and rose-lined colonnade, or have a glass of wine next to a small ornamental pool in the laranjal (orange grove).

The swimming pool is 5 by 10 meters, with easy steps into the shallow end, and is quite deep at the far end. The pool house is a comfortable place to have a drink or read, with an outdoor propane heater to warm up cool mornings or evenings in the early spring or late fall. We supply beach towels in the pool house for guests. The pool and pool house are often sociable spaces, shared with us and our young son, and sometimes with our own guests or the WWOOF (Worldwide Workers on Organic Farms) volunteers who help us in some months, but if you'd like privacy, just let us know what times you'd like to have te pool to yourself.

The allee leading to the nora (Moorish well, with an impressive cistern and mule-driven water wheel) is where we like to play boules. We also have a croquet set.

The olival is a wonderful place to walk, run, have a picnic (we can supply a picnic blanket or folding chairs), sleep in the shade, or just wander around. There are views of Elvas and its forts and of Spain from the top, and cistus and lavender grow wild among the rocks. Our sheep lend a peaceful presence with their bells. When burning is permissible (fall through spring), we can arrange a bonfire cookout among the olive trees.

October is olive-harvesting season, and a busy time on the quinta, with both Portuguese workers and WWOOF volunteers helping out. Guests may observe the harvest or might even be able to join in. There is a bottle of our excellent early-harvest, single-harvest olive oil in the cottage for you to use. (Additional bottles are available for sale, if you like it and want to take some home.)

Interazione con gli ospiti

Il cottage è molto privato, e gli ospiti possono essere completamente indisturbati, ma c'è spazio condiviso nei giardini e intorno alla piscina. La quinta è un'azienda agricola, così i nostri aiutanti regolari saranno qui più giorni e in alcuni periodi dell'anno, specialmente nel raccolto delle olive, ospiti anche i volontari WWOOF (Worldwide Workers on Organic Farms) che vengono da molti paesi per aiutare Noi sulla quinta. Molti ospiti godono di socializzare con noi o addirittura di unirsi a noi per i cookouts, ma se preferisci la quiete e la privacy, basta farci sapere se vuoi essere lasciato da solo o se vuoi avere una parte dei giardini o della piscina A te stesso in momenti specifici. C'è molto spazio! Lavoriamo a casa e di solito sono disponibili se necessario. Ci piace incontrare gli ospiti di AirBnB provenienti da diversi Paesi e con diversi interessi, e spesso possono mostrare gli ospiti in giro, offrono un drink nella casa di piscine o giocare a tavola, bocce o croquet.

The cottage is very private, and guests may be completely undisturbed there, but there is shared space in the gardens and around the pool. The quinta is a working farm, so our regular helpers will be here most days, and at some times of the year, especially at olive harvest, we also host WWOOF (Worldwide Workers on Organic Farms) volunteers, who come from many countries to help us on the quinta. Many guests enjoy socializing with us or even joining us for cookouts, but if you prefer quiet and privacy, just let us know if you would like to be left alone, or if you'd like to have part of the gardens or the pool area to yourself at specific times. There is a lot of room!

We work at home and are usually available if needed. We enjoy meeting AirBnB guests from different countries and with different interests, and often can show guests around, offer a drink in the pool house, or play board games, boules, or croquet.

Altre cose da evidenziare

La Casa do Forno è completamente rinnovata e aggiornata, ma la quinta nel suo complesso è un lavoro in corso. Apporterà agli amanti della natura e della storia, e coloro che sono interessati al processo di riportare la quinta alla sua vecchia gloria, più di coloro che vogliono un hotel di lusso. Il nora - il nostro primo progetto di ristrutturazione - è di grande interesse storico e ora stiamo gradualmente ripristinando il complesso sistema di irrigazione che nutre. I giardini, le verdure, le rose e un giardino mediterraneo secco, sono sempre in evoluzione. Cerchiamo di essere responsabili in modo ecologico, perciò lavate bianchissime e evitate i detergenti chimici duri quando è possibile.

The Casa do Forno is completely renovated and up to date, but the quinta as a whole is a work in progress. It will appeal to nature and history lovers, and those who are interested in the process of bringing the quinta back to its former glory, more than those who want polished hotel grounds. The nora—our first renovation project—is of great historical interest, and we are now gradually restoring the complex irrigation system it feeds. The gardens—vegetables, roses, and a dry Mediterranean garden—are always evolving.

We try to be ecologically responsible, so we line-dry laundry and avoid harsh chemical cleaners whenever possible.

Absolutely no smoking in the cottage!

Important: though we welcome children and infants of any age, infants must be listed as children when calculating the number of guests, and they incur the extra guest fee. Since we provide a high chair, portable crib/playpen, and bedding for infants.

Pets are welcome on request, as long as they don't disturb our own animals (cats, a very quiet, timid dog, and sheep). Dogs should be leashed outside elsewhere, for the safety of our pets, and must not be allowed into the small planted area by the cottage or other flower beds. The olival is fenced, and a great place to walk a dog, but they need to be leashed when there are sheep grazing (the sheep are penned up at night, so usually early morning and late in the day is a good time to let dogs run--ask us).

You are welcome to use the pool at any time, but please keep noise reasonably low (music at an ordinary volume is fine) after 9 p.m. in consideration to the neighboring farm. Children must be accompanied by an adult at the pool or in the horta at all times. We supply pool towels for swimming.

Don't smoke inside the cottage. Don't smoke or light fires in the olival in the summer, because of the fire risk.

Check-in is normally 3:00 to 9:00, check-out by 12:00 p.m., but we can often be flexible--just ask.

Please list number of adults and children, including infants, accurately when booking, and don't bring guests you have not told us about.

Directions can be found under Location after booking, but let us know if you need more detail.

Un alojamiento perfecto para una escapada en pareja o en familia. Nosotros hemos ido dos parejas y dos bebés, es pequeña, pero ya nos lo habían advertido los anfitriones Es ideal para pasear, descansar, y disfrutar al aire libre. La casa se encuentra dentro de Quinta do Veloso, una finca rural encantadora, con huerto, olivos, y ovejas. En diciembre, disfrutamos de una barbacoa en la zona de la piscina al sol. Muy cerca de Elvas. Miranda y Krister encantadores, dispuestos a todo lo que les pedimos. Repetiríamos sin duda.

Um espaço fantástico aliado a uma excelente hospitalidade. Os donos da Quinta são encantadores e sempre atentos para que tudo esteja do nosso agrado. Vale mesmo a pena. A quinta tem tudo o que se pode pedir para uns dias de tranquilidade. Aliado a tudo isto, a cidade de Elvas está a poucos quilómetros, permitindo usufruir de uma cidade com um centro Histórico classificado como Património Mundial da UNESCO. Ir, ir e ir!

Magical!! Miranda and Krister are incredible hosts and their property is incredibly beautiful and unique. The apartment is incredibly clean and elegantly appointed - great kitchen, outdoor grilling possibilities and endless sitting areas in the extensive grounds. Upon arrival, we were given a lovely tour of the grounds and were left a bottle of wine, and extensive goodies: cheese, proscuitto, olives, nuts, etc. They have an extensive vegetable garden and herb garden which we were encouraged to partake of. We loved every minute here. Hope to come back!

We were staying four nights at Miranda’s place and really had a great time! The farm run by Miranda and her husband is a very special place. It’s an old monastery-farm with numerous elements from the olden days. You can still feel how people in former times used to live and to work on these grounds but you also have many new elements like the excellent pool and a fancy barbecue area. Miranda is a very lovely host. When we arrived she explained us everything about the farm and the area. And imagine that she also put a bottle of local wine and fresh bread, cheese, bacon as well as homemade jam for us in the kitchen. The bungalow is adjacent to the main house but we always had our privacy. While we enjoyed really quiet night we appreciated the fact that the farm is a very open and inviting space. We could walk around freely and were allowed to use all the facilities. Keep in mind that this is not a hotel but a “real place” where people live and work. It is a work in progress and we were in fact very surprised what Miranda and her husband created in only a few years. We found it a very nice place with an almost mystical touch. The nearby town of Elvas is also interesting and worth visiting. Thank you, Miranda, for your kindness. We wish you and your family all the best for your future endeavours.

What an amazing place to stay! We visit the area most years to see family and we are so glad to have discovered this place. This is the perfect spot to relax in complete peace and quiet while at the same time having lots to discover in the area. Miranda and Krister are extremely friendly and welcoming. They were very happy to allow us to bring family to the quinta to swim and grill on the barbeque for dinner. They had left drinks and snacks for us on arrival, including a bottle of local white wine. The cottage is very well equipped and very spacious - the photos do not do it justice. We will be back without a doubt. Thank you Miranda and Krister for a wonderful stay.

Wij hadden het genoegen om 2 weken op deze mooie quinta te verblijven. Miranda en Krister zijn erg gastvrij. Bij aankomst stond er een heerlijk welkomstpakket klaar met lokale delicatessen, wijn, brood en heerlijke eigen olijfolie. We zijn ook uitgenodigd voor een barbecue, dit was erg gezellig. De quinta is schitterend met een mooie tuin en olijfboomgaard en een heerlijk zwembad. Het huisje heeft alles voor een aangenaam verblijf. De ligging is perfect voor een bezoek aan de Alentejo, veel is binnen een uur met de auto te bereiken. En Spanje ligt vlakbij. Er is maar één nadeel: je wilt niet meer weg.....
