Cerca do Sul



Cerca do Sul is a small boutique B&B in Odemira on Alentejo's beautiful southern coast. This tranquil hideaway has a bright seaside-chic style and wonderful views out to the coast and Monchique. Lounge by the outdoor pool or wander down to the sandy beach of Costa Vicentina along a coastline of more than 100 km. The Natural Park of Southwest Alentejo has some of Portugal's most spectacular scenery and is home to hundreds of species of birds and flora. Perfect for a relaxing holiday, more active guests are also well-catered for - why not take a surfing course with their Surfing Holiday Packages, rent a bike, go horse riding or mountain climbing?


Sunbathe out by the swimming pool, or take the short walk down to the pristine sandy beaches of Costa Vicentina. A 45 minute drive takes you to S. Vicente Cape with its majestic cliffs and bird life including peregrine falcons, crow-billed reds, and if you are lucky, you may spot a kestrel. The Natural Park of Southwest Alentejo and Costa Vicentina has a vast wealth of flora and fauna, all open for exploring. The coast is also great for surfing, and Cerca do Sul have a variety of surfing packages available for novices and experts alike. The best local beaches are the child-friendly Carvalhal and the peaceful, and more difficult to reach, Amalia beach, though there are plenty more your hosts will happily recommend. To explore inland, this chic retreat has adult-size bikes for for guests to use free of charge. Cerca do Sul also have links with SudAventura, offering activities for the adventurous, including canoeing, mountain biking, horse riding, hiking, climbing, rappel and sport fishing, which is great for families with kids. Burros & Artes also offer a range of family-friendly arts & crafts activities such as pottery, painting and art using the natural surroundings for inspiration. The kids have their own playground, and everyone can join in with games in the chill out room which has a kitchenette for guests use and in the living room which has a TV with DVD player and a selection of movies. The nearby Zmar Spa offers guests a 10% discount, so take a rejuvenating trip to this little gem in Zambujeira do Mar. For a relaxing start to the day, guests can take a yoga class out on the grass in summer and in the cosy lounge in winter. Round off the day with an hour-long massage experience.


Enjoy a breakfast of freshly-baked bread, cheeses, ham, homemade jams, cake and cookies, freshly-made ice tea, cereals and yoghurts and daily alternatives such as eggs with tomato & oregano, scones, croissants or crepes; there's no need to rush with breakfast served until 12.
