This is a rare place in rural Portugal. Unusual accommodation in the most stunning setting. Very warm welcome by Victor and his wife and Uri and his wife who bring breakfast each morning, which is a very well laid out treat. The view of the lake is amazing and the peace and tranquility makes you forget about everything even if... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A world away from concrete and crowds, in the heart of Alentejo, you come upon the serene waters of Santa Clara lake. At the edge of the broad, still waters is a unique retreat, seamlessly integrated with the vibrant, natural landscape in which it finds itself and the centuries-old Portuguese culture that inspires it. Moura Encantada lies on the margins of Santa Clara reservoir, on the sunrise side of the Alentejo, 230 km south of Lisbon. Alentejo offers a laidback pace of life, and a more tranquil atmosphere than neighbouring Algarve. Its main appeal is its nature, water lake and the sun. Here you will find a choice of excellent Portuguese meals provided by home made food. A leisurely drive from Lisbon takes 2.5 hours and from Faro takes 1 hour. The Villa: The villa is simple, spacious, well-equipped and comfortable. It has two bedrooms, plus a bathroom and living area, with terraces. Ideal for couples with children. Outside, in the magnificent deck suspended over the dam, there are two padded chairs loungers and a table with four chairs. Perfect for enjoying the glorious views across Santa Clara lake. The house is located 50m from the water. There is a jetty for diving, sunbathing and fishing. This is a house built with rammed earth, with two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two single beds. The room has mini bar, Kitchenette, table up to eight people, sofas, television, stereo with speakers, amplifier, CD player and a huge shelf with the beginning of the Portuguese library that are to be formed in Moura Encantada. Library Even being only the beginning of a big project, you can browse our extensive, carefully collated collection of books, magazines, records, CDs and journals. We are bringing together all kinds of artifacts in the past few years to allow you the opportunity to discover a fascinating world of Portuguese literature and culture. ... more   less
