The area you will visit is a paradise for walkers, ramblers and wine lovers.

For six generations, the Mollet family has made a living from showing the best that the Alentejo has to offer.
Nature-lovers and birdwatchers will not be disappointed. With luck, you might see or come across an Egyptian mongoose, bustards, hoopoes, bee-eaters, booted eagles, wild boars and many more species.
