Sobreira Cottage - Horta Vermelha

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Borba, Evora District, Alentejo
You will immediately feel Horta Vermelha's energy, character and personalised detail. From salvaging used or old furniture, maintaining the whitewash and original pigments, to keeping the Mediterranean weeds instead of planting an artificial high-maintenance lawn, dedicated effort and care were put by both Sónia and João.
The result is a genuine diversity of colours, textures, organic and authentic housing features, while being connected to all beyond the Horta. The surrounding space offers inviting spots under great cork and fig trees, the Japanese Medlar, amidst the century-old olive grove, or by the old natural spring under the oldest walnut tree, and the most appreciated eco-friendly refreshing tank.

About the neighbourhood
You are in the country, but not isolated. You will be in control of your time and your feelings, whatever you decide to do. You may choose to relax in the private comfort of a centuries-old cottage, with surrounding olive and walnut groves. You may take a day out, exploring the region's beautiful landscape, world heritage, towns and castles. Or you may go winery hopping, savouring the renowned quality wines.
We invite you to take in the richness of the area with independent spirit, at your own pace. Even if you are in a working mood. Have you imagined being linked to the world under the trees?

How to get there
Airport: Lisbon: 180.0 km
Horta Vermelha is located in the immediate outskirts of the town of Borba. Matriz is one of the two parishes (freguesia) of Borba.
On the roundabout on the north-eastern entrance of town (on the Spain side), turn towards the road along the supermarket. You are 800m from Horta Vermelha.
You have the supermarket on your left, an old wall on your right (Quinta do General). Carry on along this country road, always straight ahead.

Borba is well served by frequent and comfortable intercity National Express Bus. The bus stop is around 1km from us. For journey planning and timetables we suggest Rede Expressos (also in English).
