It was a perfect stay in the middle of nature but just 10 min drive to the sea. The house was lovely decorated and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Manuela was a brilliant host with a big heart - we will come back, that’s for sure.

Monte da Cascalheira is a holiday and leisure space located in the countryside of Cabeça da Cabra, a small village 4 km from Porto Covo and some of the quietest beaches in the Natural Park of the Southwest Alentejo and Vicentin Coast. The property consists of three traditional houses of different sizes set in a surrounding garden that gives it privacy. There is also a tree house and a SIOUX tipi tent set up in the Summer.

Between July and September our guests can enjoy breakfast prepared every day with the best ingredients from the region at Café do Louro, next to the well. The Café also serves themed dinners and excellent mojitos, piñas coladas and other cocktails among plants and flowers in the shade of majestic laurel.

 The region offers a wide range of activities that you can enjoy during your stay, especially surfing and the paths of the Costa Vicentina Natural Park with more than 350 km of marked trails.
