The Local Area

The Alentejo is Portugal’s secret. Commonly known as the “bread basket” of Portugal the landscape is a patchwork of breathtaking plains and gently rolling hills forested by cork oaks and olive trees. Dotting the lightly populated countryside are beautiful towns steeped in history going back to the Romans. The major tourist attraction of Evora (a UNESCO world heritage site) is just 28km away. The surrounding countryside is ideal for walking, hiking, horse riding and mountain biking.

The Alentejan coast boasts a magnificent beach that stretches 60km from Troia to Sines. On the stunning beaches of Comporta and Carvalhal (an easy 70km/44mile drive) you can doze next to the turquoise sea to the sound of Atlantic breakers or while away the hours eating fabulous seafood.
