lovely location, friendly locals and stunning countyside. Loved the orange tree outside where you could pick your fresh orange for breakfast. Extremly helpful and attentive Luis who was so helpful.

We had a fabulous week at Casa do Brasao. The home is well equiped, comfortable and stylishly decorated. It is located in a small village halfway between Marvaó and Castelo de Vide which are both beautiful towns to visit and explore. Both towns are just a short 10 minute drive. It was also a comfortable drive to Évora (approximately 100...

About the neighbourhood

This charming cottage is situated on the edge of the small, peaceful Alentejo village of Barretos. Discover cobbled streets surrounded by beautiful olive groves, cork oak trees and ancient pathways.

A bull festival is held in the village every second weekend in August (Festa Largada de Touros) when the brave men of the village entice the bulls to charge. This is followed by music and dancing well into the night.

There are a number of small cafés and a small village shop for a few essentials. A wider choice is available at a good supermarket (Pingodoce) in Castelo de Vide - 9.5 km, and a mini market in Santo António das Areias - 2.6 km.

Marvão - 8.5 km (5.2 miles)
