  • Description


    Our house is located in Santa Marta, just 10 minutes from Alcoutim, a charming village made up of farm houses which are dispersed throughout its roads and made up of hospitable locals who always welcome visitors with a smile. Since its opening in 2015, this house has valued a distinct type of local accommodation, where respect for culture and ways of local life are priorities, giving importance also to the abundance of the surrounding landscape and to principles concerning the protection of the environment of this village and region. Those who pass through here take with them something good and special to tell their family and friends and to cherish and without a doubt they take with them the desire to return.
