The atmosphere of the Alentejo is worth it. Nature, the landscape and, at some distance, the sea, ask to be discovered. You have plenty of space to do that from 2 detached holiday homes (each on their own terrain of 3 and 5 hectares respectively) in our neighborhood: Monte da Madeira or Ninho da Cegonha, or from Casa a Oliveira, which is located on our own grounds (5 hectares). Are you looking for something special for 2 people? On our property we also have 2 comfortable shepherd huts: nice, special shelters for 2 persons and of course also in combination for rent for 4 persons.
Throughout the year there are opportunities to see nature at it’s finest, with Spring bringing beautiful wild flowers, and warm sunny days. The Summer offering long sunny days and cool comfortable evenings, and Autumn and Winter ideal times for hiking, cycling and in the evening relaxing with a glass of wine by the fireplace.
For those of you who are interested in Culture, there is plenty to explore. From Roman Ruins, Museums, picturesque little Villages and Towns such as, Ferreira, Beja and Serpa, or we can offer advice on visits to Old Churches and Ermidas, sometimes with centuries old Frescoes that can only be seen by appointment.
If you are a Nature lover there is plenty to see, take a walk in the Forests, Farmlands and Reservoirs, bring along you binoculars and see the many species birds and wildlife. We are also happy to arrange a boat trip to see the Dolphins of the Sado and for the sports enthusiast you can enjoy mountain biking – surfing lessons or carting track in Evora.
Whatever your preference “o-vale-da-mudanca” offers a perfect base for you to enjoy an active, quiet or cultural holiday in Portugal, and we would be happy to welcome you.
