About Us

 

A Casa da Árvore is truly a family home. It has always been our home only until 2014 when we turned it into a bed&breakfast. This is where our family grew up- we played here, studied, learned, worked, laughed and cried here. And even now that we are adults, the two daughters Rita and Teresa, and living far away, we can’t be too far for too long from this village and this house. The ocean breeze, the pure air, the fresh bread, a Sunday by the fireplace or an afternoon baking cakes with mom kept bringing us back. For us, coming back home on the weekend was much more than two days at home; it was a total fulfillment of the soul, it was BEING HOME!

During the summer, people were always coming by. When we were younger, our friends would stay always just a little longer over their curfew. Now, friends stop by for a couple of days to relax or just for a few hours to catch up, and for a dip in Malhão beach and a meal at the big table.

Many smiles, many sun rays, many dinners, many cheers and many rainy afternoons spent by the fire place drinking tea or roasting chestnuts. Many laughter and endless conversations…

It is this spirit and this priviledge that we want to share with you as our guests! The Casa da Árvore exists to multiply our passion and our pride of the Vincentine Coast in five senses: the best landscape views, the delicious food of the Alentejo, the sounds of the waves, the pureness of the countryside air, and a comfortable nest to come home to.

If you already know the Alentejo then you know what we are speaking of. If you don’t then you’ll get to know it! Mom Leonor, the two daugthers Rita and Teresa, and Andre are here ready to honor our region and welcome you as family…
