Summer Accomodation in Almograve, Zambujeira, Porto Covo, Vila Nova de Milfontes


Could anyone recommend, or does anyone know of, places to stay (1 person) for 1 night only (or 2 nights in one case) during July and August, bookable preferably by e-mail or website (Portuguese language no problem), in any of the following places:

Almograve, Zambujeira, Porto Covo or Vila Nova de Milfontes?

They could be hotels, residenciais or similar, i.e. somewhere of reasonable quality but without totally breaking the bank!

Try this link for accomodation in Almograve: [original link].
For the other cities try the relevant city councils: www.

Stayed in the pensao campos for 2 weeks: no electricity, no running water, excellent food, nice beach and absolutely no (night) life; but that was in 1975!
Enjoy your trip

Hahaha, the Pensao Paulo Campos is one possibility I've found, sounds a bit terrorific from your description but I suppose things have improved since then!
I'll check out the other addresses, thanks!

Friends of mine enjoyed a brief stay here

Quinta Do Moinho De Vento in Vila Nova de Milfontes

of the four possible places you just mentioned, i've been to two so far: Porto Covo and Zambujeira do Mar

Porto Covo is nice but a bit touristy for my taste but Zambujeira is a gem and absolute favorite of mine on the Alentejo coast

In Zambujeira I always stay at any of the apartments I could get from this lovely man Senhor Barreiros who owns and rents out any of his several houses in Zambujeira. If you get lucky he'd have one whole house entirely to yourself at a price of an apartment! His phone is listed on my Zambujeira tip if you're interested.

Good luck.

We were in Vila Nova de Milfontes a couple of weeks ago and we stayed in Casa do Adro ( [original link]), and we should recomend it for the location , the hotel and the good treat that we received there
Breakfast in the terrace is great!!!
