Fantastic place to stay with so much history to see. The location is rather remote so a car would be beneficial and necessary to be able to explore the area and nearby towns. Castel de Vide is a traditional Portuguese town where you can see and taste Portugal at its best without the commercialism of the Algarve. The apartment is...

We wander the world searching for places like Sleepy Santiago - perfectly furnished, clean, attractive, private, quiet, beautiful grounds, views, warm welcome, near superb sights. Sadly, we rarely find them; however, all of the above are delivered by Joanne in her cottage in Castelo de Vide. The cottage is exquisitely designed and the grounds of the estate are huge with...

We stayed three days at Sleepy Santiago and wished we could have stayed for weeks! The accommodation is beautifully furnished and provides every comfort you could wish for. The views from the decked terrace and around the apartment are absolutely stunning and we spent lovely evenings drinking wine and gazing out at the Alentejo countryside before us as the sun...

About the neighbourhood
The historic Spa Town of Castelo de Vide is set in the heart of Parque Natural da Serra São Mamede in Alentajo, 19km from the Spanish border and 210km from Lisbon airport; 570 meters above sea level with panoramic views of the Spanish Mountains, Serra da Malcata, the northern Mountains of Serra Estrela, the fortress of Marvão and the small chaple of Erida de Nossa Senhora da Penha perched on the mountain ridge across from Castelo de Vide… a treasure trove of gems to name a few!
To the side of Sleepy Santiago there is a Roman cobbled road that will take you directly into the castle walls, from here you can take in the magnificent views from various advantage points. Walk around the castle ruin and visit it’s museum.
