Perks for the Parents

Set in the olive groves surrounding the Moorish town of Moura, the Moura Residence is packed with features to occupy the whole brood and has a large family activity program. Surrounded by palm trees, it has a good sized pool, large and comfortable living spaces and a large kitchen. Outdoor spaces include shaded terraces and lounge areas for relaxation. Moura is a beautiful town to visit and is just a short drive away.

Why Kids Love it

The activities, the freedom to explore nature and the swimming pool are some of the points that delight younger visitors. There is a 50m zipline, a climbing wall and an inflatable castle available at an extra cost. Special family programs include waterskiing, wakeboard, buoys, boating and wildlife viewing. Inquire with the host for further details.

Things to Know

The pool is set away from the house and although it is not fenced, there is no direct unfenced access to it from the house. Airport transfers can be arranged with your hosts from Lisbon or Faro in both directions; they can arrange to pick you up in a hire car alternatively for an extra fee. All bedrooms have air conditioning.

About the Location

The residence is in the countryside a short drive from the small town of Moura, which has all the necessary stores and facilities. It is a charming town with a distinct Moorish quarter of narrow cobbled lanes, churches and a ruined fortress. It is 2 hours 30 minutes from Lisbon, Faro, the Algarve and Faro Airport and is around 30 minutes from the Spanish border. Seville, Lisbon and Faro’s airports are all 2.5 hours’ drive away. Car hire is essential in this rural area. Licence number: 19284/AL

Accommodation Details

This single story house has a large well equipped kitchen, living room with dining area, reading room with books and children’s games and outdoor space including a pool, seating areas, BBQ and gardens. There are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in total, being 3 double bedrooms and 1 twin bedroom.

Style Notes

Comfortable and welcoming with a dash of Portuguese style. Terracotta tiled floors and white walls throughout. Palm trees in the garden. We particularly like the outdoor spaces, with day beds, wicker rocking chairs and loungers and a wide variety of places to sit and enjoy the sunshine.

Alentejo, Portugal

Wild coasts and olive groves

The Alentejo is one of Europe’s best-kept secrets and a great choice for families who want blue skies and sunshine but not the high-rises, crowds and ubiquitous golf courses of the Algarve. Parents will love the history in towns such as Unesco-protected Évora, which has medieval walls, a Roman temple and a Gothic cathedral, while for children there are fields of sunflowers, storks nesting on chimneys, rivers to swim in, and wild, rugged Atlantic beaches.
