Casa do Largo

typeBed & Breakfast
The old family house that is the Casa do Largo truly reflects the hues, aromas and colours of the “Alto” Alentejo.
And there’s another thing that the Casa do Largo has in common with this region – friendliness and an unhurried state of mind. Time really does move more slowly here, so we’ll bet you will spend a not inconsiderable amount of time just chilling out by the pool to the sound of the cicadas. Just as likely, you will also be charmed by Maria Luisa who treats all her guests as good friends and knows a thing or two about the art of hospitality.
Located in the small and historic town of Crato, the Casa do Largo has also been fully refurbished to a really excellent level, the upshot of which is that the authenticity of the place has not come at the cost of comfort or sophistication, as the house scores highly on both these points. All seven rooms, each named after a colour by the way (from Blue - tranquil and romantic, to red - warm and seductive) are individually decorated using a combination of modern design and antique pieces that works really well. Now, a high point of a stay here will surely be breakfast. Not only is it delicious, with bread served warm, in a beautiful bread bag, fresh orange juice, homemade jams are made of seasonal fruits, such as melons, figs and plums, but it’s the place where you take it itself, served as it is in the Blue Lounge with its plethora of 18th century blue tiles. Just take your time enjoying it all.
Yet, you’d be wrong to think that this slow pace of life means there’s nothing to do. Far from it! Trekking, all terrain bikes, hunting are all easily available. Guests will even have access to the "Herdade do Azinhal do Marquês" and it's private dam well known for it's clean waters full of fish, at about 4 km away from Casa do Largo.
The Alto Alentejo Region, with its friendly and quaint villages, towns and cities, also offers a vast array of leisure and cultural activities. So enjoy the slow life, slow food and relax.
