On a cork farm in Portugal‘s Alentejo region, just a few kilometres from the border with Spain, Herdade da Negrita Agroturismo is a blissfully peaceful farmstay escape with B&B, and self catering accommodation, on 3500 hectacres of farmland that not only contains a huge amount of cork trees but also cattle, pigs, and fields of barley, oats, wheat and olives.
Their accommodation is tastefully decorated in rustic style in keeping with the low key, rustic atmosphere of the place. The B&B rooms are all super comfortable, with air conditioning, TV, study desk and private bathrooms, and there is plenty of space around the cottages and the gardens to relax, with an outdoor swimming pool and gardens, and indoor lounge area which includes a billiards table, and a large terrace with lots of seating space.
The self catering accommodation is in separate cottages that are spacious and equally stylish and comfortable, with their own kitchen, lounge area and terrace, and guests there can also make use of the facilities at the main farmhouse.
Note: No WiFi!
The huge farm is open for guests to explore themselves, or with a guided tour, and they can learn a lot about looking after farm animals and the production of cereals, olives, and of course the world famous Alentejo cork.
The surrounding area too is beautifully remote and peaceful and is great for a long meandering walk or cycle. The farm owners are always ready to give advice about what to see and do in the local area and can help organise fishing trips and canoeing around the local rivers.
The nearest city to Herdade da Negrita Agroturismo would be Moura, about 40 km away, the city of Beja is 80km, while Evora, the capital of the Alentejo region, is just over 100km to the north west.
WHAT OTHER GUESTS SAY:
“Splendid quiet retreat. Welcoming people and ambience...”
“The remoteness of this place is fantastic and it has a great farm environment. We stayed at the lake house (the largest one) and it is really beautiful. There is plenty of space to roam and explore, with dogs and cows always around…”
