The Monte da Ameixa Country House is located in an Herdade of 60 hectares where pines, corktrees and arbutus grow, near Piçarras, Castro Verde, in the heart of the Lower Alentejo region. With panoramic views over the landscape, the building grew out of an old monte in ruins where Maria João Pedrosa, the owner, was born. For her and her family, the project is a true return to the origins and to the memories of a happy childhood, in a set that offers tranquility moments and an absolute relaxation. The guesthouse is surrounded by stunning landscapes and as one arrives will feel the pleasant scent of the cistus, hear the birds chirping and enjoy the long desired peacefulness. A charming and confortable space that offers gladness, confort and well-being, the perfect cocktail to relax and revitalize the mind. See our movie

Where To Go
 1. Castro Verde 
 2. Campo Branco 
 3. Bird watching 
 4. Sacred circuit 
 5. October's Fair 
 6. Gastronomy 

1. Despite the apparent peacefulness (the shepherding is the main activitiy), Castro Verde is strongly linked to the bloody past of Portugal. The battle of Ourique had its backdrop only a mile away from the town. At the Royal Basilica, one can enjoy a remarkable set of panels exalting the famous Battle.

2. With a flat landscape and sparse vegetation, Castro Verde is the heart of this whole vast area of the Lower Alentejo known as Campo Branco. For those who enjoy wide open spaces and bird watching (3.), paradise is here.

4. Countless shrines, chapels and other small temples are witnesses of the cult that the sacred has in the region

5. October’s Fair celebrated since 1620, is considered one of the most important fairs in the South of Portugal.

6. The Gastronomy follows the simple rules of Alentejo cuisine: unique flavors that express the people’s know-how. Don’t miss the queijadas of cottage cheese.
