About the neighbourhood
With its stunning views over the open countryside and just minutes to walk into the centre of Castro Verde. Discovering the coastlines and the historic towns is easy from this central location within the lower Alentejo region. Rugged un-spoilt beaches along the west coast are within an hour and offer much to explore, water sports and the walking the rota vicentina coastal paths. Enjoy the fabulous fresh seafood grilled to order and sample the wines of the region. The Algarve is just 45 minutes away offering more glorious beaches, golf and aqua parks for the children.Local activities include: vineyard tours, wine tasting and dinner, jeep safaris, motor quading and spa days. Stepped in history it is possible to visit historic towns and sites such as Lisbon, Evora, Mertola and MarvaoDelicious...
Getting around
The roads are amazingly quiet and stunningly beautiful at any time of the year. The motorway provides a fast track option, from and to the airports, but even these roads are very quiet and very simple to navigate. Driving here is a pleasure, but you can always hop on one of our bicycles as an alternative way to explore the countryside. We have some suggested walks for you, starting from the property, no need to take the car.
