Agro Turismo Monte Alto is a typical ‘Monte’ from Alentejo inserted in a farm with 300 hectares of holm oak forest, where you can feel the deep connection to nature. It offers 8 bedrooms, all with different decor and a rustic, yet comfortable and charming look. Each bedroom has a private bathroom, flat-screen tv and air conditioning, and free wi-fi service is provided in common areas. Breakfast is served every morning in the wide, bright dining area, where you can start the day wonderfully, tasting regional products and watching the natural landscape. Other meals have to be booked and are arranged to meet the guests’ tastes. At Agro Turismo Monte Alto energy efficiency and water saving measures were adopted and the practice of sustainable agriculture is based on organic farming. All around the estate, you will be able to see the "black pig" and the sheep, grazing in free will. Nature, comfort and quietness are the main features of Agro Turismo Monte Alto. On cold winter days, the fireplaces warm your body and soul, and invite you to rest and read the books you postponed during the fuss of everyday life. In warmer days, the outdoor swimming pool invites the guests to swim or sunbathe. For those looking to explore the surrounding area in an environmentally friendly way, bikes and hiking tracks are available, making the perfect scenery for birdwatching and observation of the endemic fauna and flora. Among the many birds that can be observed, you might have the chance to see cranes, wood pigeons, bee eaters, little owls and some types of vultures. The Natural Park of Serra de S. Mamede is about 20 km away. We suggest a visit to the Coffee Science Center and the Adega Mayor, both of which are only 4 km away. Ouguela, Elvas, Marvão and Castelo de Vide are also beautiful villages to visit and Olivenza or even Merida, in Spain, should not to be missed!
