Herdade das Coutadas with 30Ha was once a self-contained farm where daily bread, goat's milk cheese and pork and mutton sausages were made and where many workers lived.
Today, these houses are transformed into comfortable apartments decorated in a country style to accommodate tourists who want to come and spend their holidays in the region.
In total there are in the farm 5 houses for rent, all autonomous and in complete privacy. The houses are in excellent condition due to the renovations.
When a house is rented it is by its totally independent total space with fully equipped kitchen, bedrooms, living rooms and bathrooms.
All the houses have a garden table and chairs outside on furnished patios so that you can take your meals when the weather permits.
If you want to come in large groups or more than a family you can occupy all or part of the farm and thus be all together in the common areas but each in his house.
The swimming pool which has a very large surrounding space is to be shared with all the houses, but it has chairs and shadows specific to each house so that everyone can share the space.
All in all, the houses are very pleasant and comfortable and relaxed with the advantage that they are located in the middle of the peaceful countryside and are only 10 minutes from the city center of Portalegre, with its fantastic medieval castle overlooking the city.
About five minutes from the farm you have 5 large supermarkets (Leclerc, Intermarché where you can do all your shopping.
This region of Portugal of unique and rare beauty is located on the borders of Spain with many tourist sites to visit (Marvão, Castelo de Vide, Alter do Chão, Évora) is a guarantee for a fantastic family vacation.
Children will love it because not only do they have a lot of space to play but they also have contact with nature and the animals that live on the farm (horses, sheep, cats and small kittens)
