Verdemar – B&B country houses in the Alentejo

Although only a short drive from the Atlantic beaches, Verdemar’s setting is bucolic. Hidden away among stands of old cork oaks, beyond the main gate a very special country retreat awaits.

Since 1989 Nuno, a chef and a painter, and Christine, woodworker and restorer, have dedicated their talents and energy to Verdemar. Together they restored this old tavern into the place it is today.

Their two sons, Duarte and Tomás, also took to the family business after having lived abroad for some years. Together they share their love for the Alentejo; its great food, wines, beaches and nature, with all of those that come to visit. Read the full story here.

Located in Casas Novas, close to Cercal do Alentejo, Verdemar is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing holiday in the south of Portugal.

A 20 min drive from the popular coastal areas, 1.5 hour drive from both Faro and Lisbon airport. The long plains, the rolling hills, the climate, the wineries and the beaches make this region a popular destination among those that love a relaxing holiday away from the crowds.

Location 

At Verdemar there are 6 B&B rooms (include breakfast). The rooms are little cottages with private entrance from the garden\terrace, each with its own unique character, colors and size.

We also offer 4 houses (Casas) which have a fully equipped kitchen & outdoor BBQ. The Casas are located around the main building and have their own private entrance, terrace and parking (don’t include breakfast). Each house is different in size & character and has a story of its own. See all accommodations.

B&B

Verdemar has 6 rooms, with fresh breakfast buffet service included. The rooms are little cottages with private entrance from the garden\terrace, each with its own unique character, colors and size. . They all have AC (except nº2 which has a fan), TV, coffeemaker & private bathroom with shower. Room nº 6 is quadruple room (4 pax) with its own outdoor kitchenette.

CASAS

We also offer 4 houses with fully equipped kitchen & outdoor BBQ. The Casas are located around the main building and have their own private entrance, terrace and parking. Each house is different in size & character and has a story of its own.  

Guest rooms and casas are spread around the outbuildings but the focus is the main farmhouse and dining room. The atmosphere is laidback and cozy; a wooden beamed ceiling, an open kitchen/bar, Nuno’s paintings and a place where people come to enjoy the beautiful things in life. You’ll share fun, excellent food and wine– al fresco in summer.

The food is one of the of main reasons people keep finding their way back to us. After long years spent working as a chef in the bustling city of Amsterdam, with its great variety of fancy cuisine, Nuno has opted for the peace of the countryside and the simplicity of rural fare – natural products, fresh fish, local meat and vegetables from our garden. His son, Duarte, followed in the same footsteps, having worked in some of Amsterdam’s best restaurants (Scheepskameel, Toscanini etc.). He now brings a modern & innovative twist to our beloved classics that so many keep coming back for.

We spent a couple of days, and we could stay much longer. The place is amazing if you enjoy staying in the middle of nature. No noise and many stars in the sky at night. We stayed in the “Green House”. It’s cozy and small with everything you need also to prepare meals. There’s a nice balcony outside to enjoy the stars. Excellent hospitality. The breakfast served at the house is great and we also had dinner one time prepared by the hosts. Also, great. The place is in the middle of nowhere but just 10 minutes away from local town and 20 minutes from great beaches. 5 points and we will for sure come back one day

A short week stay but already willing to come back. Excellent space where we were able to relax and rest.

The owners do provide everything to make the stay something special. And all the personnel are attentive and extra helpful.

Do take your time to enjoy the dinners. I was amazed every day by the exceptional quality of the daily choice made by the Chef (the owner and son).

If you are looking for an authentic Alentejan experience, Verdemar has everything you want. My girlfriend and I booked for one night during our hiking trip on the Rota Vicentina and we wished we had booked for many more nights. Christine, our host, is most thoughtful, really helpful (picked us up in Cercal as we were on foot), knows her region on the end of her nails and provided insightful tips. She has a way of making everyone comfortable and it makes the experience in Verdemar exceptional. The same can be said of Nuno’s food, which is authentic and hearty yet sophisticated. On a cold November night, we couldn’t ask for more. I have to talk of the breakfast, which was well beyond expectations: a pure delight that sustained us for the better half of a day, with homemade products as well as regional products, both fresh and tasty.

 

I said Verdemar was a small piece of paradise and I mean it. It feels as you’d dropped out of time, which for me is the true meaning a vacation. For the nature, the country and the animal lovers, Verdemar will make you feel like you are where you ought to be: in paradise lost, and found again.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay with Nuno and Christine. The food is great, both the breakfast and the dinners are prepared with care; we are dealing with a great chef! The ambiance is beautiful, and the rooms are tastefully decorated. Due to the location of the rooms, you have maximum privacy. Verdemar has set out beautiful walks in the area, in addition to the walks of the Rota Vicentina which they also can advise you on. Recommended!
