In this article, I will talk about the Agrohotel Monte Oliva near the Spanish-Portuguese border. On the second day of the route, we decided to take a break from the road and drove from Seville to the border with Portugal. About 20 km from the border, in the countryside, this hotel was located.
Hotel Monte Oliva is a pleasant country hotel surrounded by an olive garden, with cozy rooms and a jacuzzi on site. The exact location of the hotel can be seen on the map:
Check-in and a room
We arrived in the afternoon, about an hour at 3. The hotel was quiet and empty, there was nobody, neither tourists nor hosts. A little annoying, but what to do, they began to call the owners.
After the call, the hostess arrived 10 minutes later (apparently, they live in a neighboring city). She showed us everything kindly, told us, and advised me to go to Tavira for dinner, because there are no restaurants or shops nearby.
I show the photo of the number:
Convenience and food
And here is the hotel territory:
The rooms have Wi-Fi.
Breakfast is included in the room rate. Since the hotel is a family business, breakfast is tasty and homely, the hosts themselves cover it. It’s not difficult to eat too much: pastries, cheeses, sausages, granola, yoghurts, freshly squeezed orange juice (juice tastes better than in Portugal, there is nowhere else in Europe!), Fruits, including local mangoes.
As I said, there is no restaurant in the hotel, in the evening you need to go out for dinner. About a kilometer from the hotel there is some local bar, but I don’t know whether they are fed something, and the people appeared there already by 9 pm (or by 8: do not forget about the time difference with Spain: -1 hour )
Tavira is a town about 5 km away, I initially thought it was some kind of provincial town, but it turned out to be a resort town not far from the ocean.
Many tourists and cafes
And even a big grocery store
You can have dinner for 35-40 euros for two.

In general, I want to sincerely recommend this hotel – for one night, or for a few – it does not matter! Nice, clean, relax hotel where you can relax, at least on the way to Lisbon!
