Make a holiday rental home or villa in Evora, Portugal your home away from home

The city of Evora lies on the wide plains of Alentejo Province in Portugal. Known for its stunning ancient centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Evora is a magical place to stay, with views across the plains and the Tagus River for as far as the eye can see, and a lifestyle that is purely Portuguese. The Evora region is one where true Portuguese rural lifestyles live on strong, and there is nowhere finer to escape that to the charming villages of the open countryside around Evora.

Things to do in Evora, Portugal

There is a huge amount to explore from an Evora villa. The ancient town centre is encircled by ancient defensive walls which have been astonishingly well preserved and the monuments within date back from every important historical era in Portugal’s long history. The huge Roman Temple of Diana is an ancient marvel of the highest quality, and should certainly be on any sightseeing tour from Evora accommodation, and the vast Gothic cathedral, the largest in Portugal should not be missed either. In reality, every turn you take will uncover a new treasure, whether an ancient monument, important art gallery or municipal museum.

The Tagus Valley is filled with historic villages that simply ooze charm. The castles of Viana and Alvito are particularly special, but the whole plain is a historian’s dream. Walking, mountain biking and horse riding are especially popular methods of exploring this unspoilt part of central Portugal, far from the usual tourist routes along the Costa de Lisbon and down into the Algarve, and the little whitewashed houses, colourful flower boxes and charming landscapes will forever endear you to the region almost the moment you arrive in your Evora villa. The bird watching is absolutely excellent from a holiday rental in the Evora region. The River Tagus is also a wonderful fishing river, and permits, equipment and local knowledge is easy to come by.

The Evora region is right on the Alentejo Wine Route, with a great number of ancient cellars and lush vineyards to explore and investigate. Local wines are fantastic from an Evora villa, and the restaurants throughout the region serve nothing but the finest local produce, including the wine, providing you with a real taste of rural Portugal.

Places to visit on holiday in Evora, Portugal

The Sao Mamede National Park is just an hour from self catering Evora accommodation. The park encompasses a huge area of plains, as well as four mountain peaks, the highest of which reaches 1,025 metres. More than half of the animal species that call Portugal home can be found in the park, including some magnificent birds, from vulture to eagle, stork to owl.

Weather in Evora, Portugal

The weather in the Evora region is much milder than that of the Algarve, yet you can still expect blissfully warm temperatures throughout the summer and autumn, with daily peaks reaching into the mid 30’s (?C) on a daily basis. An Evora property acts as the perfect escape from the British winter too, with daily temperatures in the grips of winter rarely dipping below 15?C.

Travel to Evora, Portugal

Lisbon’s International Airport (LIS), known as Portela Airport, is the closest to a holiday rental property in the Evora region. There are a great range of inbound flights arriving from the UK, with many airlines providing services. Hire cars are in good supply at Lisbon Airport, and it is strongly advised that you hire one for the duration of your Evora holiday.

The home is located in a small town quite close to Estramoz. We had spent two weeks traveling in other parts of Portugal and coming to the Estramoz area was a wonderful way to relax and truly enjoy the Alentejo region at the end of our stay. The home was beautiful, nicely decorated, comfortable and, very well appointed. It has a private backyard which we used and enjoyed. We shopped at the local market (Estramoz) and cooked every evening. We found the kitchen, BBQ area and dining area to have everything we would need. Elsa and Carlos were terrific hosts. They welcomed us and were always available and offered all the instructions we needed to get acclimated when we arrived. They also gave us additional pointers to vineyards, restaurants and towns to find local pottery (Redondo) and other things. I would return and would definitely recommend Monte Freixos to our friends and family.

From the location we were able to roam free in all the region and easily went to Lisbon. What's even better is that after an long day on the road, there was always the pleasure to go take a swim! Everything was perfect!

There was plenty of room and accommodations were comfortable and spacious. The house is well-maintained by the wonderful housekeeper, who was also our babysitter. We greatly appreciated the extra services she provided aside from babysitting, such as the home-cooked meal (delicious!) the day of our arrival, and the grocery shopping, so we would have breakfast the morning after the day of arrival. The weather was quite hot while we were there, but the house stayed cool during the day. It had all the amenities that we needed, and the pool was beautiful! So refreshing considering the high temps. We were able to do day trips to Lisbon and to the beach with ease. Evora is very close-by, so there is good access to restaurants. The owner was very responsive to our needs and she was always quick to respond to our questions and concerns. Our stay was perfect!
