This unique luxurious self catering house which is ideal for groups of friends or families is set on a very private secluded one hectare site in Vale Lourenço, a mountain valley exceptional for its beauty and nature, within the Natural Park of São Mamede in North Alentejo near to the Spanish border. This delightful house is superbly equipped and tastefully and comfortably furnished.
The view from the outdoor terrace is truly spectacular and the gentle gurgle of the mountain stream which borders the property makes this a very peaceful retreat and an ideal place to escape from the busy world. This is an exceptional part of Portugal full of character, steeped in history and barely touched by tourism.
The Quinta is not suitable for children under 5 years old because of the terrain.
We have different prices for 2 to 8 guests. Please contact us if you can't see the price for your party size.

About this location
The Alentejo region
The Natural Park called the Serra de São Mamede is a protected nature reserve. Whilst Alentejo is mostly a large and gentle rolling plain the Serra de São Mamede region is a range of hills with varying terrain and landscape throughout. The peak is Sao Mamede is 1025m and is 3km to the north of the Quinta which is in a picturesque valley at 600m.
Portalegre which sits to the west of the Natural Park is described as a city but is home to only 15,000 people. Most other centres of population are small villages. This is a laid back area dotted with hilltop villages with castles. The most notable being the quite spectacular Marvao and its relaxing neighbour Castelo de Vide.
If you would like a little country walking we have nine walks for you to choose from. Each takes you through different habitats including cork oak forests and olive groves.
