About this property

Vale de Camelos Country House, Alentejo, Portugal

Family-friendly agritourism property in Mertola
Welcome to the introspective beauty of Baixo Alentejo. Vale de Camelos it's a country house located on the most iconic rural region of Portugal - the "Golden Plains" of Baixo Alentejo. If you're looking for a place to rest, look no further. The house is more than 200 years old, built in the typical Alentejo style, with white walls, blue basement and orange tile roof. It's completely rebuilt to meet contemporary needs, while keeping it's original style. The house is located at the end of the tiny village (typically a "monte") of Vale de Camelos. The house has a typical decoration that contributes to a cozy environment you can enjoy during spring, summer, autumn or winter. It has a typical settlement around a patio, facing the garden and the swimming pool, giving you total privacy. It has a large garden and lots of spots to rest or read. During summer, a nice swimming pool has a wonderful view of the surrounding plains and plenty of shadows around to lay down a chair or a towel. You can also visit the orchard and, by request, you can collect vegetables and fruit to cook a nice meal. You can also cook using the outdoor grill. Inside, it has a spacious living room with fireplace, for the rare rainy winter days. A perfect environment to rest, eat, sleep, read or play board games. The kitchen is also large and includes a comfortable eating area. It has 3 master bedrooms, 1 double room and two bath room, one with shower and the other with tub/shower combination. You have plenty of options for short or long walks or bike rides, across the fields of wheat and vineyards. You can also take an after lunch/dinner walk around the place and meet the neighbours. Locals are very friendly but will not disturb your privacy in any way. The region has a really nice weather. It hardly rains, thus the sun is normally present. Although it's located deep in the country side, it's just 20 minutes away from district capital Beja, or typical villages of Mértola and Serpa. You can travel to these locations by car, along very nice roads, across the golden plains of Castro Verde or the green hills of Mértola. There are plenty of towns with medieval castles you can visit and+ other tourist attractions that will contribute to an unforgettable stay. Baixo Alentejo has a great reputation as an excellent place to rest, travel and utterly famous for it's gastronomy. Ultimately, there isn't an average restaurant around, all of them - and there are plenty - offer high quality tradicional food meals.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect tranquil place for the ultimate relaxing holiday
This was our first trip to the Alentejo, and thanks to Nuno and Joana and the beauty of the countryside around Vale de Camelos, we had the most relaxing time. Every bit as lovely as the picture suggest, this is a welcoming, well equipped home with a gorgeous outdoor space and pool. We used the barbecue area most days, and love relaxing by the pool listening to the quiet and occasional distant cow bells and sheep. There are so many gems to discover not too far away by car, and our hosts were amazing at recommending where we should try. Our favourite restaurant (Herdade des Grous) was less than 20 mins away, and you can easily reach the beaches near Porto Cova or Tavira. Both are well worth the visit. Once more, huge thanks to Nuno and Joana who were amazing hosts and we hope to return in the future. We

5/5 Excellent

Tuscany meets Greece and Alentejo in a precious little gem.
Charmy, cozy and delightful. If you value rest, privacy, countryside and you are not willing to give up of all the comfort and in-house amenities, look no further. I am talking about an updated tradicional roomy house, with a very well-thought indoor layout and superb outdoors. You will find a choice of patios, sitting areas and tables, shade and sunny spots that assure that you will find the perfect spot to enjoy the beautiful hills of Alentejo landscape and relax, chat with friends and family or play sports in complete privacy. It is hard to find such rare combination. + Perfect outdoors. Big, well-equipped and comfy kitchen, with beautiful decoration details. Large living room with XL windows and access to the garden. The view by the pool. Attentive owner and staff who will be there if you need to. Privacy. - Noisy outdoor's AC unit. You may find that the odd traditional lock will give you some fight. But who needs locks in Alentejo anyway?
