Come and Discover Alentejo, Portugal   1 comment

How would you like to holiday in a rustic log cabin or a luxury caravan on a small working farm in the rural province of Alentejo? Halfway between Ourique and Odemira, the feminine shape of Aldeia das Amoreiras’ hills will seduce you. Our place is just an hour’s drive from the famous Algarve and from the stunning west coast resort of Vila Nova de Milfontes.

A car is essential for this holidays but they are cheap to rent. The area is excellent for walking, painting or photography as it is excellent unspoilt countryside.

The log cabin is situated on the top of a small hill giving stunning views of the surrounding countryside. It comprises of a fully equipped kitchen, a ground floor bedroom, a loft double double bedroom serviced by a staircase. There is a lounge area with a double bed-settee,  TV and log burning stove (wood is provided free). The Bathroom is a separate building and boasts all mod cons. Nearby is a smaller log cabin which can be used as an extra bedroom (children’s) or for evening use whilst using the large BBQ area.

  1. We came last year and stayed in the caravan and worked with Julie and Glynn on their farm. They are a lovely friendly couple and really appreciated our help. The work was not hard the sunshine was good and the experience with the animals was fantastic. We slept in the log cabin which is really fantastic, the views you get from it are fabulous.
    We stayed May to July with Julie and Glynn and have kept in touch ever since, they are a lovely hard working couple who deserve to get on in life.
