The Alentejo

The Alentejo Region is made up of straight lines, rolling plains, and fields of grain; a relaxing area free of the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The anachronism that is Casa do Óc.

Under the shade of the oak trees…one can take a dive!

A landscape from the past with the comforts of the present; an outdoors that is hot, cold, gold-colored and green. A colorful interior that is also white, urban as well as rustic. Stroll about, take a deep breath in, or read. Take a bicycle ride, go for a run, and then return home for dinner amongst friends. Be a kid again, talk to the cicadas, and grab on to the moon.

Borrowing the slogan from a well-known Portuguese brand, all I can say is: We’ve got everything here!

What a place!!
