Overview

Sao Luis Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps up to 5, plunge pool, quietly situted in 30ha of breathtaking countryside

This unique place is situated in a private property of 30ha, in the quiet village of Troviscais approximately half an hour’s drive from beautiful golden sandy beaches and close to picturesque fishing villages and beach towns such as Vila Nova de MIlfontes, Zambujeira do Mar; Porto Covo, Sines and many more.

This country cottage sleeps up to five people, ideal for families or groups of friends. Vast gardens ideal for al-fresco dining where one can sip a glass of local wine by the plunge pool in one of our garden hammocks or relax on one of the sun loungers. Also perfectly safe for children or pets to run and play.

The Southwest Alentejo and the Vicentine Coast Natural Park, where The Cerca Houses are situated, is the part of the Alentejo facing west, confined by the Atlantic Ocean. Its length with more than 100km of sea coast extends from Sines, in the north, to Burgau, in the south (Algarve). The Southwest Alentejo and the Vicentine Coast Natural Park is the best protected European coast line in terms of unique species of fauna and flora, therefore being visited by many zoologists and botanists from all over the world. Another kind of rarity are many species of birds and also otters, being the only place in Portugal and one of the last in Europe where it’s possible to find them in a sea habitat.

The beaches all along the coast are another of the big attractions, being much requested for the practice of water sports, and are considered as the best in the country.

Casas da Cerca can offer you a choice of onsite activities such as bird watching, canoeing, fishing, horse riding, cycling, and lovely walks in and around our village. How about a romantic picnic with a river view or a visit to the windmill, one of the last working flourmills in the area?

The River Mira is a 1.5km walk away from the property with lots of spectacular wildlife to experience along the way. This welcoming and somehow mysterious river can be very creative too as it was in 1965 one of the sources of inspiration of the famous “Yesterday” from the Beatles.

At Casas da Cerca we provide bicycles, fishing equipment, binoculars, picnic hampers, and bats and balls in all the houses.

The vast gardens are ideal for families with children and animals as we do accept all pets who are more than welcome to sleep with you in the house.

The picturesque Fishing village of Vila Nova de Milfontes can be reached within half an hour’s drive,

Vila Nova de Milfontes is also situated within the Natural Park. Famed for its vast golden sandy beaches one can spend relaxing days at the beach or even take advantage of various water sports. There is a wide range of Restaurants, cafés and bars for all tastes. There is also a good selection of supermarkets, shops and a fresh fruit and fish market open most days of the week.

Nearby there is a large selection of small cities, towns, villages to visit with various attractions including, roman ruins, safari park, reservoirs, lakes, go-carting, zoo, paint balling, paragliding and much more. Numerous festivals and saints days throughout the year providing wonderful traditional entertainment for all ages.

We now have a fresh catering service available on request, ideal for when arriving home from a long day at the beach, a good selection of traditional meals delivered right to your door.

This beautiful and untouched area of Portugal has plenty to offer weather you want a quiet and relaxing or adventure packed holiday. For more information please take a look at our website www.casasdacerca.com.pt.

About Graça Jalles

My name is Graça Jalles, I'm Portuguese and in 1998 returning home after a long period living abroad, in Macau, south of China, I've chosen to live in the Alentejo (South of Portugal).

I’ve always loved the country side and particularly this part of Portugal. Here I run a Rural Tourism, Casas da Cerca, which evolved from the reconstruction of ruins that existed in the property.

Being myself an Architect it was also a challenge and an opportunity to be able to do the reconstruction projects myself, especially because I've chosen to do it in the traditional way of building in this part of the world, the earth construction.

I’m very fond of music too having travelled around Asia in a Portuguese Folk Group.

Last, but not least, I love to meet people that really share my love for nature and the Tourism have given me that chance which I’m very grateful.

Graça Jalles purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Graça Jalles chose Sao Luis

Casas da Cerca was a “meant to be” process. The first goal, being an outsider, was to find a place in the country side. Casas da Cerca was there waiting to become what it is now. Ruins reconstructed in the old traditional way of earth construction, situated in one of the most protected areas of the Natural Park and as a Rural Tourism for everybody’s enjoyment in a peaceful and controlled way.

Casas da Cerca are situated in The Southwest Alentejo and the Vicentine Coast Natural Park, in one of its most protected areas.

Casas da Cerca distance 1,5km from the Village of Troviscais. Also distance 22km from Vila Nova de Milfontes, the touristic village by the sea, from where you can have access to various beaches along the coast, 8km from the village of S. Luís, and 15km from Odemira.

Casas da Cerca are three Houses (Casa da Adega, Casa do Tanque e Casa do Pomar), situated in a peaceful place of a 30ha property, near the river Mira (15 minutes walk).

Casas da Cerca is a kind of a retreat place. You can get in touch with the silence here in a way you thought it didn’t exist anymore. It’s perfect also for outdoor events in connection with that silence.

Presently there are Summer Workshops being held at the place under the theme “The Art of Slowing Down” and as described below. For more information you can go to Casas da Cerca Web Site www.casasdacerca.com.pt

Notes:
The roads that lead to Casas da Cerca are dirt roads, so city cars should drive slowly. The Headquarters are near but not visible from Casas da Cerca. Next to the house is a small tank which used to serve in old times, as a water reservoir for irrigation of the meadow, and that suits today as a recreation tank. Specially in summer time, the mosquitoes 'attack' generally early in the morning, and in the evening before dark. In winter time early in the morning, can be very cold outside because of the frost, but becomes normal again as the hours go by. 'Casas da Cerca' is part of a bigger property of 30ha, called 'Monte Novo dos Troviscais', so the private outdoor space around, is plenty. Also from 'Casas da Cerca' one can go to the River Mira, which is probably the only non polluted river in Europe, and take a bathe there. The River distance 15 minutes walk from the house.
