Venda do Duque
Alentejo - Rural Tourism
Only an hour and half’s drive from Lisbon, Venda do Duque isn’t simply rural tourism, but the rural Alentejo itself. Its essence is captured within the fabric of several houses that have been carefully refurbished with the care of someone protecting their great grand parents’ memory. A family tradition handed down over 5 generations.
This refurbishment breathes authenticity – white-washed houses charm and shelter stories to be shared in the central courtyard they embrace. What was once a grocery, a bakery and barbershop is today the perfect retreat to rest body and mind. The courtyard, once upon a time a busy hub is now transformed into a tranquile space. The swimming pool, framed perfectly by the landscape seems to always sat there.
The small decomissioned train station adjacent to the houses reinforces the idea that time has stopped to preserve peace and tranquility for guests at Vendado Duque .
After losing yourself in this earthy-toned landscape you’ll certainly struggle to be brought back down to earth. But is this not the true meaning of rural tourism?
The property has two houses: the Large House and the Small House, respectively accomodating up to 10 and 4 guests. The houses can be rented separately, sharing the use of patio and swimming pool, or rented together, enjoying the full extent of the grounds in privacy.
