More about this property

We have a little pool for cooling off but not for swimming! There is also a little river passing by and not far away there is a nice, hidden waterfall to enjoy hot summer days.


Our Neighbourhood

Our farmhouse is situated in the Serra de Sao Mamede Natural Park, in the beautiful Alentejo Region close to the Spanish border. This beautiful wine and cork-tree region is mainly rural and offers lots of nature and many hiking and biking trails - and not to forget: many wine tasting opportunities.

More about the neighbourhood

The villages and cities in this region are small, but with much to see. Many of the nearby villages and cities are on the list of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Mostly medieval and pre-medieval villages (some of them with good conserved castles) can be reached within a couple of minutes to one or two hours distance from our house. Just to name a few: Évora (one of the oldest cities Europes), Elvas (an amazing border-city between Portugal and Spain with an unique fortress), Marvao (and its beautiful medieval castle), Alegrete, Monserraz and Cáceres (astonishing beautiful Spanish city with a lots of history).

In our village you will find everything you need (little supermarket, bakery, bar, restaurants, petrol-station) and in 15 mins. drive (17 km) you will reach the regions capital Portalegre with everything else you may need (big supermarkets, train station, bus station, car rental, hospital).


About Us

We are a couple in the early 30's. We just bought a house in Portugal and are happy to be able to exchange it. We have done many home exchanges already, but mainly with my husbands family.

We normally take vacations on European wintertime and prefer to go to a warmer climate.
