This was our first trip to the Alentejo, and thanks to Nuno and Joana and the beauty of the countryside around Vale de Camelos, we had the most relaxing time. Every bit as lovely as the picture suggest, this is a welcoming, well equipped home with a gorgeous outdoor space and pool. We used the barbecue area most days, and love relaxing by the pool listening to the quiet and occasional distant cow bells and sheep.

There are so many gems to discover not too far away by car, and our hosts were amazing at recommending where we should try.

Our favourite restaurant (Herdade dos Grous) was less than 20 mins away, and you can easily reach the beaches near Porto Covo or Tavira.

Both are well worth the visit.

Once more, huge thanks to Nuno and Joana who were amazing hosts and we hope to return in the future.

Nous avons passés une très belle semaine au cœur de la campagne. la maison est confortable, la piscine a une très belle vue et les propriétaires très disponibles pour être à l’écoute de nos besoins.

Charmy, cozy and delightful. If you value rest, privacy, countryside and you are not willing to give up of all the comfort and in-house amenities, look no further. I am talking about an updated tradicional roomy house, with a very well-thought indoor layout and superb outdoors. You will find a choice of patios, sitting areas and tables, shade and sunny spots that assure that you will find the perfect spot to enjoy the beautiful hills of Alentejo landscape and relax, chat with friends and family or play sports in complete privacy. It is hard to find such rare combination. + Perfect outdoors. Big, well-equipped and comfy kitchen, with beautiful decoration details. Large living room with XL windows and access to the garden. The view by the pool. Attentive owner and staff who will be there if you need to. Privacy. – Noisy outdoor’s AC unit. You may find that the odd traditional lock will give you some fight. But who needs locks in Alentejo anyway?

We liked very much of Alentejo… the wonderful night sky, the landscapes, the food and special wine (@Adega Velha, Mourão) and the peace (stop your thoughts for a while and listen to the hot wind)…! And we also liked Horta, the people (and “violet”): the welcome of the family, inhabitants availability, sympathy and humility in the treatment; the swimming pool and the shade of the garden, the beds and pillow comfort, bicycle ridings in sunrise and sunset, the dinners and snacks next to the barbecue. Anyway, “good and recommended, as well as the fish @”Frango à Guia” in Beja. We will come back, soon.

We stayed for a week at Vale the Camelos and had a really good time. This is a beautiful, old country house with spacious and well-decorated rooms (we were four couples + three children). The garden is large (great for barbecues) and has a number of trees that provide shadows in the hot days. The swimming pool is larger than we could judge by the pictures. The owner, as well as the employees who clean and maintain the property, were very friendly and always available to answer our requests. Highly recommended for a holiday period!

We loved the days we spent in Vale de Camelos, the house is beautiful and has everything to provide a great vacation. By day there are many shades to enjoy around the pool, a golden and quiet view, a good porch for barbecue. At night you enjoy the best view of the sky! Thank you also for the excellent reception and friendliness. We want to go back!

A true Alentejo house, old, typical, but with all the comforts of modern times. In the summer the pool, in the winter fireplace. You don’t need to make an effort to take advantage of the best that Alentejo has to offer. I love the landscape, the calm and quietness, the starry sky. I went, I went back and I’ll be back!

In Vale de Camelos I always find what I like most: rest and readings by the pool, walks with the Alentejo landscape as the backdrop and the best gastronomy of the Country. Without a doubt, my vacation of choice !!!
