The space

Situated in the Northern Alentejo (Castelo de Vide), Casinha da Anta is a cosy, traditional Alentejo house surrounded by idyllic nature. The house has a fully equipped kitchen area, a large bathroom with double shower, a cozy living area and a small study that can be converted into a bedroom. There is a double bed (140 cm wide) in the main sleeping area and a couch bed in the study.

In the private outdoor area you can find a small vegetable garden – whatever grows there is for you to enjoy! Under a big willow tree next to our little creek you can also relax in the shade. One of the main Castelo de Vide walking trails connects directly to Casinha da Anta.

At our organic farm, Quinta Pombal, history goes back thousands of years. The Anta dos Pombais, a Portuguese national monument, is only a few steps away from Casinha da Anta. Other historic attractions are the Fontanario do Pombal and some old irrigation systems that include two, originally animal-operated, "noras". There are many walking trails that can be used to explore our 16-ha, olive- and cork-tree-studded farm. Between wild areas and spaces used for agriculture, you might encounter sheep, countless species of birds and many other forms of wildlife.

I recommend this place to every traveler. The farm is beautiful, Rui and Almut are amazing hosts, and the area is breathtaking.

A wonderful place to stay if you want to spend some days surrounded by nature and, at the same time, close to Castelo de Vide. We loved the accommodations and Rui made sure we felt welcomed and at ease! Quiet and relaxing.

I don't know where to start about this amazing spot. My husband and I instantly fell in love with this incredibly peaceful and beautiful location. (The sound of sheep bells was a frequent, but very pleasant ambient noise.) While set amongst groves of olive trees, historic structures and meandering flocks of sheep, it is also very close to the charming, historic town of Castelo de Vide, either by a scenic 2-mile walking path up the hill (highly recommend!) or a short drive (just be sure to park outside the town walls because driving on the narrow, cobblestone streets is harrowing!). We enjoyed visiting the food market on Friday in town, drinking espresso at the many cafes with outdoor seating, and spending lots of time roaming around the maze of hiking paths that criss cross the area. The casinha itself is lovely, and the patio was a perfect location for eating home-cooked dinners (which all featured delicious fava beans from the garden!) and watching the sun set. Rui & Almut stocked the house so thoroughly with food and beverages that we really would not have had to leave if we didn't want to! They were incredibly friendly and helpful, and very tolerant of all our questions. They really bent over backwards for us, answering phone calls when we got lost and offering to allow us to stay longer when we found out we had problems with our airline reservations. We are so grateful for their kindness and generosity. This place made our vacation in Portugal a most memorable one. We don't often revisit places unless we really feel a connection with them, and this one is definitely going on the revisit list!

We had a wonderful stay at Casinha da Anta, located on Almut and Rui's farm. We were greeted by Rui upon arrival, who was extremely kind and helpful, making sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The house itself is idyllic and very well decorated, with relaxed and quiet surroundings. Almut and Rui were kind enough to include basic provisions and treats to welcome us. The house is situated very near (by car) to Castelo de Vide and Marvão, which are two really beautiful villages you just have to visit. We definitely recommend this house for a romantic getaway.

The cottage is just perfect for a relaxing escape, and access to nearby historic towns can't be beat. We loved hearing the sheep all around us. Incredible options for walking nearby - would recommend allowing time for exploring that way!

Rui and Almut's place is amazing. On a farm in Alentejo, with extraordinary landscapes and vistas all around. The home itself is nicely done and very comfortable. A great place to sit outside, walk and explore the beautiful surroundings. Rui and Almut were so gracious and welcoming and brought in basic provisions and things for our stay; can't wait to come back.
