Child-friendly resort with self-catering apartments near the sea in Alentejo
There is no better place to find in Alentejo to get away from it all than Craveiral Farmhouse. At this beautiful spot in the middle of nature, you can do whatever you want. Whether you spend an entire afternoon relaxing by the pool, meditating on the estate, or booking a yoga or massage session, you determine the rhythm of your vacation.
This unique, child-friendly House of Hideaways accommodation is the place for those who want to relax during their holiday and enjoy the simple things in life. You don't have to do anything here, but everything is possible: enjoy nature, watch the animals, pick your own vegetables in the garden. There's plenty to do here. Also in the nearby area. For example, you can hike and cycle in the adjacent Costa Vicentina natural park, spend a day at the beach, or visit the capital Lisbon, which is a 2-hour drive away.
When you arrive at this Portuguese farm stay, you won't believe your eyes! The special holiday park is structured like a village, with 3 swimming pools in the middle, one especially for children and one for adults. There's also a large pool accessible to everyone, a spa with an indoor pool, and a restaurant. Surrounding all that are beautiful gardens where fresh vegetables and herbs are grown, and an expansive estate where donkeys and horses graze peacefully in the pasture.
Altogether, there are 38 studios and residences where you can stay on the estate. Ideal for families and children. They are scattered across bungalow-like houses and are characterized by the same style: light, spacious, a touch of modernity, and respect for the environment. The quality of the rooms is high. In addition, they are all equipped with an iPod docking station, Wi-Fi, a fully equipped kitchen, and a nice terrace with a seat. Everything you need to completely unwind and cocoon.
During your vacation at Craveiral Farmhouse, you can choose to prepare a delicious meal yourself. But, you can also be pampered. Regular barbecues are held and the restaurant serves fantastic meals with the best ingredients from the region and from their own garden. Not only healthy, but also very tasty!
Nature, outdoor life and the sea
The Craveiral Farmhouse is ‘one of a kind,’ and this has everything to do with the ideal combination of natural beauty and the comfort of modern, contemporary life. Or actually between luxury and simplicity; on the one hand, the accommodation offers you all the conveniences of today. On the other hand, you find minimalism and sobriety in the interior, and outdoor life is central during a holiday in this unique House of Hideaways accommodation.
Stylish and small holiday homes for families
On the large estate, you will find 38 studios and apartments scattered across 4 different buildings. They all have a unique interior with a modern, Portuguese twist. A lot of wood has been used, there is a lot of natural light and the accessories, such as the colorful, hand-woven carpets on the floor, are from local designers. The box spring beds ensure comfortable nights and the wooden terrace in front of the door is a lovely place to have breakfast in the morning or enjoy a nice cup of coffee.
Many wellness options
Do you want to completely zen out during your holiday? You don't have to put much effort into it at Craveiral Farmhouse estate. The peace that is palpable everywhere instantly relieves any stress from your shoulders upon arrival. But, to become even more relaxed, there are also nice wellness facilities, such as a sauna, a hamam, a jacuzzi, and a beautiful indoor pool where you can swim laps with a view of the estate.
This unique House of Hideaways accommodation is located just 2 hours drive from Lisbon. If you are visiting the Portuguese capital, take a tour through the narrow, winding, and steep streets of the city center with the iconic yellow tram. Along the way, you will see many attractions and pass through the districts of Baixa, Graça, Mouraria, Alfama and Estrela. It's a bumpy ride of about 50 minutes, but a very nice one! In this unique way, you will see the most beautiful spots of the city and you can get off wherever you want.
Craveiral Farmhouse is located in a stunning environment, in the south of Alentejo. In a quarter of an hour, you can drive to a number of beautiful beaches nearby. In 2 hours, you can drive to the Portuguese capital, Lisbon. Right next to this special farmscape is the nature park, Costa Vicentina.
