Beautiful and typical rural property in Evora monte, with special views to the castle and surroundings especially on sunset. The house offers 3 bedrooms, 1 living room with fireplace, equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms. Outside a long porch and a wonderful swimming pool, offer the chance of leaving all stress behind.

Distinguished by its historic castle, the territory was founded in 1160. The parish of Evoramonte was issued a foral (charter) in 1248. Around 1801, there were approximately 2661 inhabitants in the municipality of Evoramonte, an area that included approximately 227 square kilometres (88 sq mi). At that time, the municipality included five parishes: Evoramonte, São Pedro, São Bento do Mato, Freixo and Vidigão. After the administrative reforms that started with beginnings of Liberalism, the parish of Santa Justa was annexed to the municipal authority. In 1849, there were 3030 inhabitants in a territory of 270 square kilometres (100 sq mi).

It was on 26 May 1834, that the historical Convenção de Evoramonte (Concession of Evoramonte) was signed between the forces of Queen Maria II (under her father Peter IV), and the forces of Miguel I, ending the Liberal Wars between liberal and absolutist forces. Consequently, Miguel was forced into exile. The municipality of Évora Monte was extinguished in the reforms of 1855, and its territory partitioned among the neighboring municipalities of Estremoz, Évora, Arraiolos, and Redondo.
