Welcome to Casa dos Sonhos, our holiday cottage in the heart of the Sao Mamede Natural Park, our cottage is a peaceful rural retreat in the midst of spectacular countryside. We provide rustic holiday accommodation in a distinctive part of Portugal's Alentejo. Hide away and detach from the busy world and listen to the sounds of nature, birdsong and distant goat bells. This is a truly unspoilt natural environment and an ideal holiday destination. To get away from it all, come here.The Alto Alentejo is an exceptional part of unspoilt Portugal its full of character, barely touched by tourism and steeped in history. From the many roman and megalithic sites, to the cobbled lanes that wind through cork oak woods and over panoramic rocky ridges giving views that stretch for miles.In Spring the wildflowers carpet the hillsides and olive groves and the land surrounding the cottage, and eagles, vultures and storks flying high overhead are a common sight. Visit nearby castle villages including Marvao or walk or cycle to Alegrete with its castle walls and viewing platforms, or simply relax by your own private swimming pool, cook a BBQ and sleep it off on a sunbed or hammock.
