Horta da Lameira is ideally located for outdoor activities such as walking, cycling or bird-watching. In summer, the large saltwater swimming pool is the main spot. Spending a quiet day under the shade of centenary mulberry-trees, reading a captivating book from our library is synonymous with total peace and relaxation.

Our house is a perfect base for exploring the Alentejo’s most beautiful areas. In the vast open landscape dominated by olive groves, vineyards and cork-oaks, you will find numerous places of historic and tourist interest.

Horta da Lameira is just about 25 miles from Beja and Évora, the capital of Alentejo and UNESCO world heritage, and approximately one hour drive on un-congested roads from the unspoilt beaches of Alentejo’s coastline or the Alqueva- dam, one of the largest in Europe.

Due to regular train service you can easily go for a day trip to Lisbon as well.

At your disposal you will find a library with a good range of English books, DVD, wireless internet access, a selection of indoor and outdoor games, table tennis and table football, a children’s play area with swing and slide, bike rental and an up to date selection of local tourist attraction brochures.
