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.

Loved it!

5 of 5
We just returned home after a fantastic 2 week holiday at Talgre. I cannot say enough about the property. The house is well appointed with everything you could need for home and the beach. The pool was our favorite and we spent long lazy hours floating in the warm water or enjoying time under the canopy in the shade. We also loved the new grill and enjoyed many meals outdoors on the lovely veranda. Thank you for Wolfram and Suzanne for allowing us to have such a memorable holiday at Talgre.

Hope to returne

We loved the large garden - amazing view. Lots of chairs and tables in the garden. We made barbecues one evening and found all the necessary equipment needed. We were a family with our children on a trip. Since our children have passed 20, we will say that this house works perfect to 4 couples. Porto Covo is a really small town. We found it authentic and real portuguese. Several good place to eat out. All in walking distance from house. Several good beaches just 3 minutters from the house We never met the owner of the house. Made all clarifications on mail. Responded to all my strange questions quickly - clarifying and service minded. Thumbs up!!! Other good things about the property: Easy access, good parking for the car, good sofa in the living room, wifi ok, clean No negative comments from us. Recommend the place to everyone
