— How would you describe Casas Caiadas in a nutshell?
— Casas Caiadas
— What was your inspiration to refurbish the houses and offer them as a vacation rental?
The site was originally comprised of four independent houses, former watermills. Trying to interpret how people once lived here, we wanted to preserve all of the original details and through keeping the rest of the place rather simple, provide a more authentic experience for our vacation guests.”

— How would you describe the architecture and interior design of Casas Caiadas?
Mixing traditional Portuguese elements with modern amenities, we added a beautiful swimming pool with a beach-like entrance. Our vacation guests really enjoy sitting in the sun by the pool during the day and stargazing at night, which is very relaxing.
We kept the surrounding landscape very natural so that our guests would be immersed in nature and feel outside of their daily routine during their vacation. Our guests’ feedback is that it offers a new experience of being in contact with nature, listening to the sounds of the birds and the stream running through the vacation rental.”
— Please tell us a bit more about the rooms and the services available to your vacation guests.
The second house is a three-bedroom house and offers a suite with en-suite bathroom and two more bedrooms with a shared bathroom. The smallest house offers another suite with en-suite bathroom.
This vacation rental is perfect for families or small groups of friends, comfortably sleeping up to 8 people.”

— To you personally, what’s so special about the experience of renting Casas Caiadas?
And my passion about the Alentejo is its beautiful landscape. It is very flat and you can feel the sky touching the ground, which gives you a sense of peace and tranquility. That is why we chose this location for our vacation villa.”
