Vale da Cegonha consists of 20 acres of beautiful countryside and includes 2 houses, Casa Coruja which is a traditionally styled Alentejo farmstead and Casa Andorinha which is a delightful detatched cottage that is perfect for just a couple or a young family. The 2 houses are approximately 50 metres apart thus assuring plenty of space and privacy for everyone.

Casa Andorinha has a very large family bedroom which has an ex large double or twin beds plus a set of bunk beds. Off the bedroom is a full bathroom with a corner bath with shower over, WC, washbasin and bidet.

The living room is open plan and is deceptively spacious. In the lounge area there is a full sized Futon sofa-bed and 2 further easy chairs, plus a dining table that will seat up to 6, if required. The kitchen area is fully equipped. It has a range of natural wood units with granite worktops and includes a hob, oven, microwave, fridge, toaster, blender and kettle.

Patio doors lead from both the living room and the bedroom on to a shady terrace which has a further table and chairs plus a charcoal barbeque. The patio enjoys lovely views down the valley and is the ideal place to enjoy a romantic supper, washed down with a glass of excellent local wine, as the sun sets behind the hill. Afterwards you will be treated to a dazzling display of starlight. Gorgeous!

The Pool Terrace is a real 'star attraction' as it enjoys breath-taking views down the valley, toward the distant hills. Here you will find a large 10x5m heated pool with a shady pergola and sun terrace with loungers adjacent. It is the ideal place for a hard day of relaxation!

The Alentejo region

The Alentejo is best described as Portugal's secret paradise. The real Portugal. Rolling hills, wide horizons and deep blue skies. A cross between the plains of Southern Africa and Provence.

It is home to a vast array of wildlife and birdlife including many magnificent birds of prey. Not forgetting of course the storks. Vale da Cegonha means 'Valley of the Storks' and they nest all around us from November until August.

The Alentejo has a long and traditional history and during the early summer months most towns and villages play host to fairs and country festivals which have changed little for generations. It is an oportunity for local people and visitors alike to gather and celebrate. The crops are all harvested, the years work is all done and there is excellent local wine to be enjoyed.

The long hot days of summer are a time for rest, relaxation and holidays before the work all begins again in the autumn.

Ourique itself is a typical small country town and there are many others nearby, each with their own character and well worth a visit. Beja and Evora both have Roman origins and Serpa is Medieval.It is also the home to one of the best cheesemaking producers is the country. Between Ourique and Beja you will find a number of vinyards where you can sample the excellent local wine as well as enjoying a traditional Alentejo lunch.

You can even enjoy a day quadbiking, horseriding or fishing nearby and if you fancy a day at the beach, you'll find one all to yourself on the beautiful west coast. Or why not spend a day with a picnic beside a lake. The Monte da Rocha lake can be seen from Vale da Cegonha and it offers total peace and tranquility as well as good fishing.
