Make a holiday home in Cercal do Alentejo your home away from home

Alentejo has slowly over time emerged as one of Portugal’s prime tourist destinations. It possesses a virgin charm and is almost always uncrowded, allowing visitors to enjoy nature’s beauty at their own pace and with minimal distraction. This south-central Portugal municipality is also dotted with a number of whitewashed medieval towns with narrow stone streets. Also in the Alentejo locality is a peaceful parish where visitors to this region can find comfortable holiday accommodation; Cercal do Alentejo. HomeAway has a great selection of holiday rentals in Cercal do Alentejo including large country houses with swimming pools and tidy yards, beachside villas and charming stone cottages built after ancient housing designs. Holidaymakers can expect nothing short of utter comfort and relaxation with the pristine furnishings and facilities such as barbecues, satellite TV and Internet access at their disposal. Visitors in Cercal do Alentejo holiday homes will also profit from great views of the Atlantic.

Things to do

-Hiking and biking: A morning of biking through the plains of Alentejo is a physically and spiritually enriching experience. As they inhale the crisp air while journeying through forests of cork-oak trees and neat vineyards, and then onwards to jagged cliffs and a picturesque coastline, holidaymakers will find the serenity and oneness with nature they’ve been craving. And they’ll get more of this as they travel further inland and stand in the midst of golden fields of waving wheat.

-Old towns: Another one of the treats tourists putting up in Cercal do Alentejo can look forward to is touring pretty medieval towns. Wandering through the narrow, cobbled streets, visitors will be struck by unique architecture of the uniform, whitewashed houses. There are also ancient castles that remind one of the battles of yore. One of these towns, Evora, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

-Monuments: One of Evora’s most celebrated landmarks is the Tempo Romano, which is over 20 centuries old. It is regarded as one of the best Roman monuments standing today. The Capela dos Ossos (Chapel of Bones) is another mind-blowing site; the 5,000 or so skulls of previous residents of this locale are neatly arranged inside it. A visit to Alentejo cannot be complete without seeing the granite monoliths of the Cromeleque dos Almendres.

-Food and drink: With all the fine restaurants around them, tourists in self-catering holiday homes in Cercal do Alentejo will not need to worry about cooking. They will have top class eateries such as the Tipica Quarta-Feira within easy reach. Here they can enjoy traditional Portuguese specialities and excellent local wine at incredibly reasonable prices.

-Beaches: Alentejo has its fair share of sun and sand which visitors can enjoy without limit. At the unspoilt beaches of Odemira visitors can take unhurried promenades and let the waters of the Atlantic lap up against their ankles. They can also climb the towering cliffs and enjoy breathtaking panoramas.

Weather in Cercal do Alentejo

Those making reservations for Cercal do Alentejo holiday homes during summer need to pack their sunscreen and hats as from June to August temperatures range from 26 to 30°C plus. There is usually no rainfall during this time of year so visitors can expect hot and dry weather. But tourists who wish to have an early holiday will still find friendly weather in May as temperature averages then are already in the twenties. Though temperatures remain holiday-conducive well into autumn, one may want to reconsider an Alentejo holiday then as rainfall is quite heavy between October and December.

Travel to Cercal do Alentejo

Most visitors to Alentejo who come from outside Portugal will take a flight to the Lisbon Portela Airport. This is in essence the main international gateway into Portugal. On arrival here visitors will have the option of taking a coach which will take roughly three and a half hours or using a taxi to get to their holiday homes in Cercal do Alentejo.

Wonderful place!

5 of 5
We had a very nice time in this lovely little cottage in quiet place. It was very clean and it has everything you need. We felt very comfortable the whole time. The property was beautiful and the pool area was wonderful. In front of the house we found a cozy nice place in the shadow of some oleander trees. The host stayed in contact with us and helped with all questions. We had a wonderful holiday. Thanks a lot.
