Herdade do Monte Outeiro
In Alentejo, “Monte” is the traditional name for the buildings that compose a farm. At “Monte Outeiro”, this represents housing, tourism, leisure and agricultural activities.
At “Monte Outeiro” we raise sheep; the animals, including our horses, chickens, ducks, dogs, cats and even the geese and peacocks live free in a natural environment.
However, life in the farm is not all about the animals. From our olive trees we make a most enjoyable olive oil. Ewe milkcheese, honey and traditional cakes are some of the other natural products that we manufacture.
Near to the Spanish border and the Alqueva Lake, our farm is located in Alandroal County, Santiago Maior, a region known as the “deep Alentejo”, included in the national ecological reserve and Dark Sky Alqueva.
“Monte Outeiro” was built on a hill in the centre of the farm, providing our guests an unbroken view of the surrounding region. The Castles of Terena and Monsaráz can be appreciated from our porch, as well as the marvellous landscape of holm-hoak trees, vineyards, and olive trees.
The “Monte” as described above, is the “soul” of every activity. Is the place where all the sounds and all the scents get together in order to offer you the enjoyment of the moment.
We have five double bedrooms with private bathroom and television. Three of them, facing south and the olive tree yard.
We have two living rooms, both with fireplaces, one cosy and ideal for watching television or play board games, The other, with its traditional Alentejo floor fireplace, is perfect for long winter nights.
Outside, you can have a relaxing drink in both our porches. From the south, facing the olive trees we can see the old castle of Monsaráz, which is located above the Alqueva Lake. From the North, under the centennial Eucalyptus tree we can enjoy the warm summer breeze while watching the wild life such as foxes, hares, and partridges.
In this wild beautiful region, you have many beautiful things to discover, from marvellous landscapes and historical buildings.
We recommend walking routes visit megalith monuments, and to appreciate wild life.
