Borba is a small Alentejo town best known for its tasty wines and its laid back, lazy feel where time has been kind in preserving its pretty streets and facades.
Perhaps one day it will also be renowned for the Casa Terreiro do Poço, a charming collection of houses, that are certainly well versed in the art of southern Portuguese hospitality - with an added slice of good taste.
Connected by a series terraces and stairways, the 3 buildings that make the Terreiro do Poço look over an attractive citrus garden and really do provide a stress free environment. This is not only thanks to the houses themselves and their super decoration, but also the charming owners. It may sound like a cliche, but they do try their utmost to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
They actually live in main house on the ground floor, but the first and second floors take in the “Varanda” and “Patio” rooms as well as the “Torre” Apartment, which features lovely frescoes and even a private tower. Casas do Jardim have their own private entrances via the garden and provide relaxing living areas, kitchenettes and en-suite bedrooms. The other two houses are entered from the garden and have the added advantage of being by the swimming pool, so there’s no excuse not to take a dip on those balmy Alentejo summer days!
But whatever the house or room, there is always the surprise of little details, be they classic pieces, vanguard design or ethnic objects from far distant lands. Even the aromas from the garden such as jasmine, tomatoes, orchards are a revelation (by the way some of these products end up on the breakfast table), but then, this is the Alentejo, where experience takes in the sights, sounds and smells of one of Portugal’s most emblematic regions.

The type of hospitality you're looking for when you travel to Portugal: owner very friendly and careful, delicious breakfast, authentic house, nicely decorated and comfortable rooms. Borba is a lovely village and the alentejo is a beautiful region.
