OUR GUEST HOUSE
Located in a pastoral paradise where you will find everything you need for complete relaxation, our guest house is a genuine Monte, a traditional Alentejan farm, spacious, comfortable and thoroughly welcoming.
The garden is filled with a light that permeates your soul when you awake. It is on an ancestral farm that has an orchard, an organic vegetable garden, the pasture where sheep graze and an ancient olive grove, where huge cork oaks and holm oaks grow among big granite boulders. Along with its pathways, you will find beautiful flowers blossoming among the rocks that make you feel like staying to indulge in conversation, to observe the birds or simply to let your thoughts wander.
In our guest house, we offer packages of accommodation with activities, ideal for foreign visitors who would like to discover the Alentejo in an active way, whether with a guide or by themselves.
See Adventures Holidays (Adventure Escapes I, Adventure Escapes II), Cycling in Paradise and Walking in Paradise to discover your favourite package deal! If you just want to book a room and relax, send your reservation form here.
Decorated in a rustic style, all rooms are personalized and each one has its own individual theme. For instance, the Cork room has pictures of men extracting cork, and of the Alentejo’s landscape full of cork trees. The colour scheme of each room has been carefully selected to reflect its theme and mood.
There are 4 rooms in total, each with its own private toilet and bath/shower. All rooms have air conditioning.
Cork room – Room with a small living area, bath and direct door to the garden. Double bed.
Wine room – Room with a small living area, bath and direct door to the garden. Twin beds can be put together.
