Carpe Vita

Self Catering Houses


Carpe Vita has six traditional houses in the romantic historical center of Aljezur, located at the top of the hill, near the castle.

All the houses are independent and totally equipped, with kitchenette, TV, DVD, sound system and central heating, and are tastefully decorated, each one with a different theme.

Outside, there are several terraces with tables where you can have your meals, read a book or drink a refreshment at the end of a beach or hiking day, contemplating the view over the magnificent lowland around Aljezur.



To taste the authentic flavors of this region, take the opportunity to use the barbecue in the terrace to cook fresh fish or local grazing beef, which you can get at the local market.

Wisely renovated with traditional materials and techniques, the houses offer maximum comfort while maintaining its original features. Its privileged location allows you to experience the serenity of this village, even in the summer months, and explore the Natural Park of Southwest Alentejo and Costa Vicentina, whether walking, cycling, or taking the opportunity to try other activities such as surf lessons, mountain biking, hiking with donkeys and climbing.
