Farm with History

The project of a countryside guest house called "Quinta da Sardinha" was born from a dream of a young girl kept away from the countryside by her professional life. However, she always carried the smell and the sounds of nature within her heart, something that cannot be forgotten. The dream of seeing "Quinta da Sardinha" recovered, the place where she grew up and lived unforgettable moments with her grandparents and other relatives, became a reality in 2015.

The integrated building at the main entrance of "Quinta da Sardinha"is a place of accommodation with all the conditions of comfort and accessibility allowing the guest a direct and genuine contact with the rural world.

You will surely carry in your luggage memories of a good time.

Come and enjoy with us!

The bedrooms have got a wardrobe, a private bathroom (with towels, a free toilette kit and an hairdryer), an armchair, a desk, free Wi-Fi, a television, a mini-bar and air conditioning. The rooms design was inspired in our region and they all have the particularity of being identified by the monuments of the city of Elvas: Sé Cathedral, Aqueduct of Amoreira, Fort of Santa Luzia, Sanctuary of Piedade, Elvas Castle and Fort of Graça.

The room Fort of Graça was prepared for people with reduced mobility, so that they can enjoy this wonderful family space too.

The common room where the design ranges from rustic and classic, has our dear Alentejo as background. In order to create a unique and welcoming atmosphere, some farming tools and other instruments were recovered from the own farm.

Guests are offered a collection of board games too.
