Convento São Francisco de Mértola

Little Cottage

The Little Cottage on the Convento grounds (a five-minute walk from the main building) is for those who are after complete isolation. This idyllic but basic cottage has been kept in original Alentejo rural style. It has a spectacular view on the village of Mértola, the castle and on both rivers Oeras and Guadiana. It is a perfect retreat for people who love the outdoors and tranquil souls.
This small cottage has one double bedroom, a bathroom, and a veranda with basic cooking facilities. Mértola is just a ten-minute walk, there you will find shops, cafe's and restaurants. There is a car parking spot near the cottage.

The cottage is completely off-grid. Solar panels provide enough energy for light, charging your phone and moderate use of a laptop.
