In the deep isolation of the Alentejo hills, surrounded by the waters of the Santa Clara dam, we find Casa da Eira de Baixo, resulting in an embrace between the River Mira and the River Torto. CEB´s location and unique features are ideal for artistic and personal development. With a constant focus on quality and environmental sustainability CEB serves as a meeting point between people, languages, and creativity within a constantly changing dynamic.
“Simply amazing! We were only accompanied by Pedro, but he was well aware that this couple lives a dream that many people wanted to live. Being in peace and harmony with nature, in 24 hours I felt that I lived a dream completely! The peace, the quiet and the images that each look captured could give any photograph of a postcard! It is excellent for those who want to know new experiences, to be in a calm place and away from the confused world of cities! It exceeded expectations and I will definitely return!”
In the south Portugal, in the middle of the Alentejo, lies a powerful gem. In the midst of a forest that has been untouched for decades lies the tree house. Ancient cork oaks, olive trees and birds surround you. You sleep in the the pure nature and experience the power, silence and coolness of the forest. Up on the hill you have a wonderful view. There is an outdoor kitchen with a fireplace, and a shower. There is the possibility to rent a caravan and to put up your own tent or van.
“We stayed for 2 nights and it was great. Barbara and her family are great hosts with a lot of love to share. The place is a perfect combination of nature and peace, and overall everything that you would want to escape the stress of the city. If you're looking for some peace and time to enjoy nature this is your place, with the plus of sharing this experience with Barbara and her family which are amazing people.”
Surrounded by Mira River and involved in a breathtaking Alentejo landscape, Monte do Alento (Ourique) embraces heritage and the history through the archaeological circuit of Castro da Cola, and invites you to discover the pure nature by hiking, biking, or navigating in one of the Santa Clara Dam water mirrors. Monte do Alento is 10 minutes from the village of Ourique and 40 minutes from the vibrant Algarve beaches of Albufeira and Vilamoura. Faro Airport is 85 km from the Houses.
“We enjoyed our stay at Monte do Alento! We were greeted in a friendly manner and found our room clean, warm and nicely decorated. The pool has incredible views and the surrounding is extremely quiet, perfect for those who want to enjoy a few days away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We dined at the Castro da Cola Restaurant, the closest to the accommodation, where we were extremely well received and were able to taste regional delicacies. We are just sorry we could not have stayed longer! Definitely a space that we would recommend to other guests.”
