A Serenada Enoturismo, Grândola
Just like a song that is shared with someone you like, this Serenada is also music to the ears of those who stay there. In a region with a historical tradition in wine, this rural accommodation combines the stay with an unmissable wine experience. The property is also of great beauty, having been in the same family for at least 300 years.
MonteXisto Hotel Rural, Vale das Éguas (Santiago do Cacém)
The rural environment and modernity join hands in the inviting MonteXisto, which offers a wide range of spaces and leisure activities. You can enjoy the panoramic swimming pool of the rural hotel, live a gastronomic experience in the Salpicos restaurant, which seeks to combine the countryside with refinement, or relax in one of the three bars: Bar DuJoni, A Laranjeira and Sunset Bar.
Monte do Cerro, Porto Covo
Four kilometres from Porto Covo, the fishing village that inspired one of Rui Veloso's most iconic songs, this rural accommodation includes three one-bedroom houses and Monte da Barranca, a century-old house that can accommodate up to eight people.

Monte do Zambujeiro, Vila Nova de Milfontes
The Mira River as backdrop and the different tones of green from oak, olive and cork-oak trees paint the picture of Monte do Zambujeiro, a facility that integrates the different facets of Alentejo, interior and coastal.
