This rural villa is located high in the Serra de São Mamede. The mountainous area differs from the usual dry lowlands of the Alentejo. Leafy and green, the surrounding area is replete with human settlements from various historical periods. At 1025m, the Serra de Sao Mamede is the highest point south of the Tagus. It’s peak offers an exceptional view over the surrounding area.
The mountain acts as a condensation barrier, creating a natural microclimate with higher levels of precipitation and humidity. The vegetation is consequently rich and varied. The north is covered in oak and chestnut trees, while in the south, the forest is made up of holm and pure oak trees.
The fauna of the Serra de São Mamede are equally interesting. Rare birds of prey such as the griffin, the kite and the Bonelli’s eagle can be spotted circling in the sky. You may even be able to see wild boar and deer, which following conservation efforts, are returning to their natural habitats. The protected park can be discovered by taking one of five walking routes.
Equally unmissable are the regional specialities such as lamb stew and roasted kid, and sweet treats such as bolemia and sericaia with plums. From Elvas, be sure to visit the cosmopolitan city of Badajoz for tourism and cross-border shopping.
From the house, the nearest grocery store, bakery and restaurant are 1.5km away, the cheery 4km, Spain is 8km and the supermarket 10km.
This is the perfect place for anyone looking for a peaceful retreat; from nature lovers to stressed executives, the Alentejo offers a serene atmosphere for a well deserved break.
Activities and attractions
Towns near the Villa
If you’re interested in archaeological heritage, make sure to visit the medieval towns of Castelo de Vide, Alegrete and Marvão or the city of Portalegre (30km away), the regional capital, that has many manor houses and convents which give it an aristocratic feel, and is also the headquarters of the Manufactura das Tapeçarias company, where many genuine works of tapestry art are produced.
The border with Spain is 2km away and the town of Badajoz is 1 hour away by motorway. The other side of the border Caceres and Seville are an easy day trip.
Enjoy the many tasty regional specialities including lamb stew, roasted baby goat, and desserts such as Boleima cake or Sericaia pudding with plums from Elvas.
Horse riding, shooting, trekking, bird watching, wine tasting, special guided tours and other activities can be organized for our guests. Short rides in hot water balloons in Portugal began in the Alentejo: it is an ideal region for this due to the vast plains that are suitable for take off and landing. Watching the sun rise amongst the mountains of the Alentejo whilst being lifted into the air in a wicker basket is an unforgettable experience. The views become more impressive, the air fresher and the atmosphere calmer. Please contact us for more information.
