Casa Velha is the middle house just renovated (2016/2017) it is completely furnished and accommodating for four- till six persons. From the house, long walks can be made. The walk to the village is already a pleasure. Depending on the time of year you walk through an unprecedented sea of flowers. Along ruins and abandoned wells.

The space

Casa Velha, the name says it all, is the old house with thick adobe walls. It's just completely renovated while retaining authentic elements. Thus, the mud wall still visible in one of the bedrooms. In the other bedroom and in the modernized kitchen are the old tiles visible.

This place was exquisite. It is a rural cabin situated in the hills of the Alentejo, about 2.5 hours from Lisbon and about 1 hour from some lovely beaches and right next to some wonderful small towns. The cabin itself is one of three units, but this is the largest, while it does not have air conditioning it is well insulated so beating the heat was not a problem. Delightfully the kitchen was well stocked.

We felt very welcome in this beautiful house in the countryside. It felt like a priveledge to stay in such a traditional house and in such peace and tranquility. The host left good instructions and welcomed us with a small Bottle of wine and a useful information folder. The stars at night were stunning and the wildlife varied and interesting. There were lovely touches like the swing and hammock for communal use.
