Alcácer do Sal Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Old Farm House from the end of 19th century, located on the edge of Santiago do Escoural village, 116 km from Lisbon. The house has just been remodeled and modernized while retaining the style and the original traces. It is now equipped with a family pool and Solarium surrounded by grass.

Access to the Farm is done by entering a gate that leads to a Patio. From the Patio, the House has 2 entrances. The main one, with the beautiful original door from the 19th century, leads to the hallway and the spacious Guest Living Room. The other entrance leads to the fully renovated and well equipped kitchen with all appliances and utensils needed for cooking, and complete tableware sets.

The primary Dining Room, next to the kitchen, has a fireplace, which gives comfort in winter to these two rooms and the Living Room next to it, equipped with TV, Video and free WiFi.

The hallway gives also access to 4 bedrooms, all equipped with Wardrobe and Dresser, three of them with 1 double bed and the other with 2 single beds. There is also possibility to set up a baby bed.

The house also has 2 large WC, one of them with bath and the other with a modern shower.

At the end of the hallway there is a Skylight that gives a fantastic natural light into the hall, where there are now a Greenhouse interior plants.

The house is naturally cool in the hot summer. In the winter we have the fireplace cited above, two powerful oil heaters in the Guest Living Room and individual heaters for all bedrooms and bathrooms.

There is still a garage for 2 cars with direct access to the street.

If you are in Escoural, you can take advantage of your stay and try the typical delicious Alentejo food in one of many Escoural Restaurants. In Escoural, you can also buy your meals to take away and eat at home. You can also try some of the best wines in the world, that are produced here, in Alentejo region (

If you like beaches you can have, 75 km away, one of Portugal's best kept secrets, Comporta and Soltroia spectacular beaches, located near a long stretch of pristine and unpopulated beaches.

Semana de Férias Fantastica

  • 4 of 5

Fomos muito bem recebidos pelo Srº José e esposa , que nos deram as dicas de que necessitavamos para a nossa semaninha de Férias.

A Quinta é espetacular, a casa é muito fresca, mesmo com 40ºC na piscina .... que esta faz os encantos da pequenada :--).

A aldeia é muito simpática tem um pouquinho de tudo.

Para descansar não há melhor ...!!!

Iremos voltar seguramente.

Adorámos a casa! Pudemos escolher entre refeições em restaurantes tradicionais a 5 minutos de distância a pé e cozinhar as nossas próprias refeições. Os miúdos (e graúdos) adoraram a piscina.

Santiago Escoural, founded in 1427, whose church dates from the 16th century, is located in a region of Alentejo very rich in archaeological heritage. Just outside Escoural there is the famous Escoural Cave, with parietal art, inhabited during 50,000 years, since the "Neanderthal Man" until “Homo Sapiens” ( Another great example, located between Escoural and Évora, is the Megalithic site of Almendres, which constitutes the greatest set of structured menhirs in the Iberian Peninsula. The archaeologists had detected several construction periods through the Neolithic Period (5000 – 4000 b.C.). Some specific characteristics indict that this was a monument with religious purposes, and an astronomical observatory ( In terms of architectural heritage, we have the city of Évora 32 km away - declared a World Heritage by UNESCO in 1986, whose historic center started from Roman times (Temple of Diana) i
