This comfortable apartment occupies the first floor of this traditional house. It can be rented together with Estremoz Castle House for an extra capacity of 4/6 people.
It has 1 bedroom with a double bed, a well equipped kitchenette and a bathroom with shower. On the outside it has a private patio with stunning views of Estremoz and the surrounding plains.
Located inside the castle walls and with views of Estremoz and the Alentejo plains, this charming and comfortable apartment occupies a traditional 18th century house renovated in 2012.
Less than five minutes walk away, you can find the XII century castle with its marble tower, the municipal museum, art galleries, and some of the best restaurants in the region. A bit further downhill (500m) you reach the centre of town where you can explore beautiful churches, the antiques and local produce market, traditional shops and experience the lifestyle and character of Alentejo.
Nearby, but better with a car, you can visit some top class wine cellars (wine tasting can be arranged), the town of Vila Viçosa with its royal palace, Reguengos de Monsaraz and the Alqueva dam (largest man made lake in Europe), the carpet weaving town of Arraiolos and the World Heritage sites of Évora and Elvas.
Regarding activities you can choose between swimming in the municipal pool or nearby lakes: excellent spots for canoeing, fishing and rowing (some of Europe’s top rowing teams train here). Hiking, birdwatching, cycling and stargazing, due to the low pollution and beautiful nature, are also a popular activities.
Rodrigo's apartment in the castle walls is an ideal place to stay in the summer or winter. The wood fire gives it a very cosy feel and the views from the wall terrace are beautiful.
Rodrigo is a hospitable host who went out of his way to arrange information about local walking routes and places of interest that were not available at the dissapointing tourist information in Estremoz.
Estremoz is an authentic sleepy town in Alentejo and an ideal get away for a relaxing break. It is surrounded by rolling hills, vineyards, cork oak's and olive plantations.
We would highly recommend both Rodrigo's apartment and Estremoz.
Awesome place inside the ancient walls of the castle!!!!! Clean, comfortable, cosy, with a very nice little terrace. Fantastic view over Estremoz. Very central in the area, we are able to visit Alter do Chão, Portalegre, Évora, Avis, Monsaraz... The hostess, Neida, was always available and helpfull showing us around and giving us good ideas to enjoy and improve our stay. We will be back definitely!!!
Clean, comfortable appartment with a nice little terrace on the back with wide view over the town. Situated in historic town center uphill, very central in the area. Evora, Elvas, and Monsaraz were well worth their visit. Hostess Neida was very helpfull showing us around, and very kind to allow us to switch from her other appartment to this one to be able to benefit from the terrace..
El lugar Es espectacular! La situation, ubicacion y orientation Es ideal. Dentro de las murallas!
La fachada, estrecha y sencilla, esconde una preciosa y magica casa con vistas magnificas!!
El interior de la casa Es increible. Mucha historia y una decoracion rural muy agradable.
Fui recibido con mucha cortesia y guiado por el interior hasta uno de los apartamentos de los dos que posee.
El apartamento completisimo con dormitorio, salon con chimenea, cocina completa y fantastica terraza con vistas geniales.
Encontre el apartamento silencioso, acojedor y muy limpio.
Esa noche encendimos la chimenea con ayuda del casero y disfrutamos de unas cervezas portuguesas Sagres.
Los dos Dias siguientes el casero y yo visitamos una bodega de vino preciosa con mucha historia y gran vino.
Conduciendo por las colinas llenas de olivos, viñas, encinas y canteras de marmol con Un Volkswagen Beatle Classico!!!
Totalmente guiado por el casero Rodrigo quien me mostro la magia de esta zona.
El ultimo dia acabo con una puesta de sol en un lago precioso entre viñedos.
Los mejores vinos, embutidos,quesos y aceite de oliva todo de la zona.
Lo recomiendo para cualquiera esta experiencia UNICA!!!!

In Estremoz you can experience Alentejo at its fullest.
Live inside a medieval town, visit such picturesque places as Reguengos de Monsaraz or the carpet weaving town of Arraiolos. Explore World Heritage sites such as Évora and Elvas. Swim in the the largest man made lake in Europe. Taste the rich wines and gastronomy.
The town is located 170K from Lisbon and 70Km from Spain and serviced by public transport and motorways.
The roads are good and there isn’t much traffic what makes Estremoz the ideal base to explore the nature and culture of one of Europe’s most unspoiled regions.
