The space

A 200 year old traditional Alentejano farmhouse on a 540ha working Cork Farm, with shared family swimming pool a short walk away available for weekends and short term lets. The farmhouse has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large living room with open fireplace, kitchen & a terrace with spectacular views over the surrounding plains.

There are a myriad of activities to enjoy on the farm. For the walkers or mountain bikers there are kilometers of footpaths around the 540 hectare farm for you to explore and for those wishing to venture further afield, the nearby peaks offer unrivalled views of the surrounding countryside. Serra d’Ossa lies at 500 metres above sea level and boasting one of the driest climates in Europe. The absence of light pollution makes this an astronomers’ paradise.

Twitchers can enjoy seeking out over 70 species of birds in the unique habitat provided by the cork forest, several of our past guests are members of the RSPB and have made lists of the birds they have seen / heard. Here is a list of a few: White Stork, Booted Eagle, Red Kite, Kestrel, Cuckoo, Tawny Owl, Hoopoe, Red-Rumped Swallow, Great Bustard, Little Bustard and Bee Eater. Visitors to the local damn include black winged stilts and the occasional avocet. Very occasionally, bustards can be seen in the lower plains.

Within a one-hour drive from the farm, you can also explore nearby towns including Evora (a UNESCO World Heritage site), Estremoz famed for its Saturday morning market, Vila Viçosa with its two royal palaces, Reguengos and even neighbouring Spain. Historical tours of Evora can be arranged with a local guide.

Vineyards : While predominantly a hilly cork forest , a vineyard has recently been planted in an open valley producing Alicante Bouschet, Aragonêz, Touriga Nactional and Syrah quality grapes. Most of the grapes are sold; however a selection of the best quality grapes are retained for the production of a high quality red wine sold in Portugal under the Cem Reis label, and in the Netherlands under the Het Tientje name. This wine has been awarded silver medals in Wine Masters Challenge (Portugal), Mundus Vini (Germany), and Challenge Du Vin (France). Next year a white wine will also be produced from viognier grapes.

Our wine and some products are available for purchase onsite.

Absolutely amazing. The house and property is just stunning and Philip and his family went out of their way to make us feel welcome and give us tips on what to see and do in the area. We felt instantly at home and didn't want to leave. We'll definitely be coming back!

We were a group of 6 first time visitors to Portugal. The farmhouse is over 100 years old but that is, indeed, part of its charm. This stop was very special largely due to the warmth and helpfulness of the owner, his staff and his family. Even the dogs were loveable and kind. …

Very nice place, full of charm, the view on the valley from the pool is splendid. A stay too short to enjoy all the attractions of the farm. Mafalda, Philip et David sont des hôtes parfaits.

A truly beautiful property and a gorgeous space. We walked the property with their sweet dogs in tow and were only disappointed that we couldn't stay longer.
