rural tourism




From the immensity of Alentejo, our guest house project comes to life, led by our little family Hélder, Mary and Nina.

After years of traveling the world, from the captivating landscapes of Reunion Island, through Africa and New Zealand to the paradisiacal beaches of French Polynesia, Tiago felt the need to return to his roots and Mary to follow him and create a place where the soul can recharge.

In September 2023, the idea was born: combining our love for the art of living, our passion for the land and our desire to welcome travelers in a preserved natural environment.

Today we open the doors of Horta.

Here each tree is a guardian of biodiversity, where each bird song tells a story.

May your stay with us be a source of inspiration, a beautiful refuge where calm and the joy of living mix harmoniously.

Welcome to our corner of paradise, where time stretches to better savor each moment.

Welcome to Horta!

Our home


Welcome to Horta da Lameira, a house rich in history, located in the heart of the vast Alentejo plain.

Rebuilt in the 1980s, this family home extends over an area of 6 hectares.

Surrounded by multiple species of trees, our typical regional house offers shade and biodiversity, creating a true haven of peace. Even on hot summer days, the house remains cool and welcoming.

You will have a large room where you can enjoy your meals, in our company if you wish. Our spacious rooms are decorated with good taste and know-how, and all equipped with a bathroom with toilet and shower.

Take advantage of our large shaded terrace overlooking the pool to relax with a good book or enjoy a delicious breakfast.

At night, the terrace lights up harmoniously, creating a welcoming environment where moments of sharing continue well into the night.
