A Quintinha is set in the Alentejo region in the midst of the countryside yet only 15 minutes drive to the ocean and the surfing beaches. Our small farm is located close to Cercal do Alentejo, an enjoyable walk away, where all amenities can be found - cozy cafes, local restaurants, grocery stores, ATM, etc. The house is set on a hectare of land with private access and parking. Newly renovated this year, it features 2 double bedrooms, bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen and a living room opening onto a large terrace. A gentle walk along the organic veggie garden, past the chicken coop and the small orchard, to the top of our land offers a stunning view over the cork oaks and the hilly landscape of Alentejo. With the intention of preserving and regenerating its surroundings, A Quintinha offers a mindful and responsible stay. We use natural and eco-friendly detergents and soaps, recycle the grey water for garden irrigation and use solar energy to generate hot water. We also offer custom on-request yoga classes at a small additional fee. Emma is a 200hrs certified yoga teacher, always keen to share some time on the mat. Cercal is also a stop over for the well-known Rota Vicentina pathway (rotavicentina.com) which discovers the nearby countryside and seashore through an extensive network of trails – we can organise drop-off / pick-up services if needed. The rugged coastline, only a short drive away, combines long wild ocean beaches, tranquil sandy shores at the mouth of the Mira river with breathtaking cliff walks and quaint little towns. It is the perfect place for all water sports (surf, kitesurf, SUP) at all levels with uncrowded spots and unique views of the SW Alentejo Natural Park.
