Alqueva Countryside Estate

Alentejo V13

Situated right next to the world-famous Alqueva Dam and river, in the heart of Alentejo, the Alqueva Countryside Villa is at the heart of the estate, surrounded by all sorts of countryside gems, such as olive groves, wheat fields and of course multiple water features.

Known as ‘Africa in Europe’, this slice of paradise will really take you on a journey, and offers more opportunity for adventure than your average villa. A stunning infinity pool offers panoramic views of the Alentejo landscape, and if you feel like something extra special there is even a jacuzzi on-site. Or, if you’re really looking for a treat, there are also Turkish baths on-site, a real holiday treat that will add to the memorability of your trip.

A wonderful staff of six are on-hand all day long, meaning that you are able to fully sit back and relax, and allow the stresses of your usual daily life to lift off your shoulders.

Typical traditional portuguese menus and deserts are prepared with local fresh produce and ingredients. All meals are “a la carte”, meaning that the in-house-chef can adapt to the preference of its guests. If you happen to be vegan or if you have any specific allergies, staff will cater to your every need. 

With 13 beautifully decorated rooms, there is certainly not a lack of space at the Alqueva Countryside Villa, with many four poster beds complete with hanging curtains around the bed, and colourful African-inspired bed coverings and furnishings.

Some rooms are double and some are twin, meaning that this is the perfect escape for both families and groups of friends alike. Bathrooms are done up in a similar style to the bedrooms, with bright colours and modern designs creating a happy, cosy feel that will make you feel at home immediately.

There is an indoor dining area, surrounded by mounted stag heads and large overhead hanging lights to create a feeling of tradition. The outdoor dining area is breath-taking, under a covered area so that there is shade in the day, it boasts glorious views of the river, and has pretty fairy lights strung overhead to create a romantic atmosphere.

There are many activities available to book when staying at the Alqueva Countryside Villa, and this of course can be done through our amazing concierge service. Whether you’re interested in polo, water sports activities, massages, pilates, hot air balloon rides, boat trips, or many other adventures, we can sort it all for you in minutes.

A stay at the Alqueva Countryside Villa will be totally memorable for those looking for a relaxed holiday enhanced by the on-site spa and bath services, or for those after a more active stay including horse riding and walking, none will forget their time here.
