Welcome to O Ninho. It is the ideal place to have some 'me' time. Get away from the pressures of modern life and step back 30 years.

The self catering apartment forms part of the Monte which had been sympathetically restored with beams and feather board ceilings; thick walls that insulate, having a cooling effect in the summer whilst retaining the heat when the log burner is stoked up in the colder months.

The triple paneled french doors completely open up and the other rooms have stable doors opening o the front garden area.

About the neighbourhood
Ourique is a small town with cafes, banks, hospital, pharmacy, library, cinema, schools. It's a friendly place where there's time for all the pleasantries which have been lost in the modern world.

The town looks like a big hill with the miradoura (view point) at the top which was the site of a castle. The Battle of Ourique is quite famous in history.

The festivals very much depend on the time of year but, for example, in March there was a few days celebrating the 'Porco Alentejo' which is the speciality in this area - the pig. There was a 'Pig Parade' with little piggies all dressed up; various tastings; cooking demonstrations, dances (and the older Portuguese are pretty swift on the dance floor); and a fantastic pop band called Toy playing into the wee hours of...
