Things to do (optional)

Free activity from your doorstep

Hiking the Rota Vicentina, the fisherman's trail .

Tracking right next to the coastline, the Rota Vicentina follows the trails used by locals to reach the beaches and hot fishing spots. It is a single track along the cliffs with plenty of sand, which can only be explored by foot. Since the accommodation is nested in the Costa Vicentina natural park, Prana Casa recommends you discover some parts of the famous Rota Vicentina.

Visiting Aljezur and surroundings by car or even local bus

The closest town from the accommodation is Aljezur, a beautiful representation of the untouched Algarve. Enjoy beautiful natural landscapes, where donkeys work the land, cowbells tinkle on the plains and some of the best beaches in Portugal await you.

Situated in the Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park, the large natural park that extends along the western coast of the Algarve, Aljezur is a small agricultural town lying on the fertile plains that border the Aljezur river. The hilltop ruins of a 10th Century Moorish castle dominate the historic town centre and afford beautiful panoramic views of cork oak and pine woods, fields sprinkled with wild flowers and the sea in the distance.

The old town spreading down the hillside is a charming mix of cobbled streets and whitewashed houses, with the characteristic colourful trimmings around the windows. The newer part of town was established in the 18th century to relocate the population after the destruction caused by the 1755 earthquake, and lies at a short distance from the hill on the other side of the river. Heading out of town, it is hard to decide what is more appealing, the countryside or the coastline. Other beautiful nearby villages are Carrepateira, Bordeira, Odeceixe or the mountains on Monchique.

Activities:

Surf classes

The classes include transfer, material, three hours instruction from a local surf school who thinks quality is more important than quantity! Everyone gets to stand up on the board!

The Algarve was the last major European surf region to be explored, and is getting very popular. Prana Casa is close to Monte Clerigo and Arrifana beach (three kilometers) both suitable for all levels.

Horse back riding

Set your spirit free and learn to trust the beautiful nature of a horse.

MTB rental

The southwest has a wide network of mainly unmapped dirt tracks that are great fun to explore on a (mountain) bike, with trips customised for all levels of ability. You can meander through colourful drifts of spring flowers and forests or see the ripening grapes and wheat fields in the autumn. Visit archaeological sites, fantastic beaches, and unspoiled villages as you pedal along some of the quietest roads in Europe. The more adventurous choose to ride a mountain bike as in this part of Portugal, most roads are still unpaved, so you can go on forever and just follow your nose.
