This is a special holiday where you may sample the traditional Portuguese lifestyle. You can hear the sheep's bells as they pass over the hills and chickens roam freely around the little cottages and yucca trees of the hamlet. Relax and unwind in a warm climate surrounded by exotic plants and beautiful scenery. Over 50 species of birds were recorded over a 2 week period.

House has a Jacuzzi bath and dishwasher, 2 shower rooms and huge covered veranda where you can sit surrounded by exotic plants. The house has its own walled garden which is tended with vines and a variety of fruit trees. Whatever season you go in there is sure to be something available for you to pick and sample whether it is luscious grapes, peaches, oranges, strawberries, pears or plums. There are inflatable pools where you can cool off and a sandpit, fun for the children, terracing and bar-b-q. This is luxury you can afford!

The Alentejo region

The Southern Alentejo is an area of natural landscape not yet fully developed to encourage tourism although it's close proximity to both the Algarve and the Spanish border means that there are numerous visitors to the region from all over Europe. Attracted by the raw beauty of the landscape, the climate and the simple uncluttered way of life, many also live here or own holiday retreats.

Cork, olive and eucalyptus farming are predominant local occupations as is cultivating and living off the land. The local Portuguese are as a rule, welcoming and generous, and a few speak English or another European language. Sadly the old ways are changing whilst the new generations move out and the foreigners move in. But this offers a new lease of life as ruins are re-built and dying properties spring to life again.


Sambro itself is at the heart of an area of ecological reserve and was once used as an experimental station for solar power. In this area you may encounter a great variety of flora and fauna, and many different species of birds and wildlife such as boar and deer. There is also much in the way of archeological heritage incorporating castles. churches, chapels and convents.

The towns are pleasant to stroll around and they all have their individual charms and surprises. There are regular open air markets. Ourique has a newly built theatre offering live music entertainment and Almodovar has two museums and a handicraft centre.

You will probably come a across a river or damn beach to dapple your toes in. Windsurfing and canoeing are available at Santa Clara damn. The beautiful Atlantic coast is within driving distance for a day with the surf rolling into pretty sandy coves.
