Marta's Farm - Alentejo, Portugal
Rates from £6,200 per week
5 Bedrooms · Sleeps 10

Overview

At Marta´s Farm you can combine a luxurious country house stay for ten guests with a true Alentejo experience, tailored to suit your private group’s needs and interests or a corporate event.

As well as a swimming pool and a small gym, there is a jogging circuit or horse riding to be enjoyed outdoors. This unique holiday rental property is surrounded by 87 hectares of unspoilt countryside planted with cork trees and holm oaks and is a place where serenity reins (except for the odd moo of a cow), somewhere you can inhale pure oxygen, and totally relax!

Extremely comfortable and equipped to a high standard, Marta’s Farm is suited for year-round rentals. The crisp and clear winter days are ideal for exploring the Alentejo and all it has to offer with fireplaces beckoning you in the evenings; whereas in the summer heat, you’ll be taking refuge by the swimming pool during the day and having outdoor evening meals.

The interiors of this Portuguese quinta are designed around the owner’s great love of horses and heroine Conchita Citrón (famous female American Portuguese bullfighter). All the bedrooms have orthopedic beds with down duvets and mosquito netting on the windows. The 100m2 living room has a TV (Portuguese channels only), a cinema screen,library of DVDs (on request), backgammon set, card games and WiFi; and the dining room can sit a maximum of 16 guests around the table (extra sitting up to 30 people can be arranged). Both the living and dining rooms have fireplaces and the kitchen offers a fantastic space for a large group to cook together.

Despite the tranquility, there’s plenty to do for those of a more active disposition. Nearby you can visit the UNESCO sites of Elvas or Évora; one of the regions 9 castles or a local market; and with a total of 33 wine cellars within close proximity, an educational wine tasting visit and lunch in a local eatery is a must! The stunning Alentejo landscape is somewhat reminiscent of the African plains and no less beautiful, and the countryside here is ideally suited to nature walks or bird watching – in the spring wild flowers abound and in the summer the golden sunsets are stunning.
