There are few better places to get away from it all than the south west coast of Portugal, blessed as it is by unique isolated landscapes and wonderful beaches. It is precisely in this combined setting of countryside and sea that the 365-hectare Herdade do Touril can be found. Just getting there inspires tranquillity, as there is nothing else around to distract the visitor from the area’s charms.

The sea breeze, warm earthy colours and smell of lavender and rosemary thus become all the more palpable. The Herdade do Touril, with its whitewashed walls tinged with blue, tiled roofs and ceramic floors retains all this rustic ambience of the Alentejo, without forsaking any comforts. Though a number of the furniture and fittings are reproduction, the feel is still one of authenticity, as the Touril also remains a working estate where around 150 cattle are bred.

In fact, some of the quirkier touches include the numerous model animals located throughout - sheep, chickens, pigs made from a variety of materials, including wood and tin. Without doubt, these are sure to delight the little ones.

Care has also been taken to maintain the privacy and intimacy of guests. Rooms, which are simple but tastefully decorated with comfortable beds lead out onto private terraces where one can contemplate the magic of the Alentejo. For those who like to combine peace with activity, leisure pursuits nearby include rambling, horse riding, fishing and diving.

Zambujeira do Mar, an interesting little seaside town, is also within easy reach.

LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT

Date of stay 08/11/2022
After a week of traveling from Porto and Coimbra in the North, when we pulled into Herdade do Touril, we thought we'd died and gone to heaven. We weary travelers were instantly enveloped in the warmth of the welcome; the beauty of the simple but elegant design, our lovely cabin in which it was possible to hear the waves of the ocean, the open starry sky and finally, an exceptional dinner in the restaurant. The food was "farm to table" in the most literal sense -- it had been grown on the Herdade do Touril grounds and had been plucked from the ground that very afternoon. We ended up eating at the restaurant for all three nights because there were so many dishes we wanted to try. The Herdade do Touril is perfectly situated along the Fisherman's Trail and is the perfect place to walk the trail and see ocean vistas, monumental colored cliffs and turquoise waves crashing into lacy webs of of foam. Everything was superb; our only regret was that we weren't able to extend our stay.
Entorno privilegiado

Scheiden tut weh...

Dass Scheiden weh tut mussten wir spätestens nach 2 gebuchten Nächten HdT feststellen. Gerne wären wir noch länger geblieben. Spätestens nach Betreten der Rezeption wussten wir, dass die Unterkunft ein Volltreffer war. Die EInrichtung des Hauptgebäudes ist sehr geschmackvoll auf das ländliche Anwesen abgestimmt, die Unterkünfte dagegen sind gekonnt mit moderner Einrichtung ausgestattet und die dazugehörigen Terrassen bieten viel Privatspähre. Die HdT hat eine tolle Pool-Bar die leckere frisch zubereitete Snacks und Drinks anbietet von ausserordentlich freundlichem Personal. Wir fühlten uns hier nur wohl und mit der tollen Umgebung und den kurzen Wegen zu den Klippen, dem ausgeschilderten Rundweg für die morgendliche Joggingrunde und dem vielfältigen und reichlichem Frühstücksbuffet blieben keine Wünsche offen. Hier wird viel getan und geboten für den Gast, auf hohem Niveau und trotzdem so dass man sich immer noch wohl fühlt. Wie gesagt, scheiden tut weh ...
Wunderschöner, sehr gepflegter Ferienort

Herdade do Touril ist ein Resort, an dem jedes Detail beim Bau, bei der Einrichtung und den Angeboten mit grosser Sorgfalt geplant und umgesetzt wird. Die ganze Anlage ist grosszügig. Die Gäste verteilen sich auf ein weitläufiges Areal. Der Frühstücksplatz unter den haushohen Bougainvillea-Pflanzen hat es uns besonders angetan. Das Personal war jederzeit freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wem französische Betten zu schmal sind, sollte nach einem Raum zwei Betten fragen. Der Spaziergang im Naturrreservat ist für Fahrräder etwas schlecht unterhalten (Schlaglöcher), aber die Aussicht auf die Klippen und das Meer lässt das gleich vergessen.

The Herdade do Touril is a quiet, restful oasis in the Alentejo region. For those who want to hike sections of the Rota, it has a great location. The rooms are spacious, and the staff are absolutely marvelous. The owner offers helfpul suggestions regarding the area and restaurants, and always has time to help. I would strongly recommend the Herdade for those who want to get away from it all in a beautiful rural setting.
Nice Touril

This was my wife and I 3rd time in HT. Always good to be back and introduce this place to our children (5 and 2). It’s almost impossible to deny the high quality service delivered by Touril. Wonderful breakfast, beautiful landscape, an amazing swimming pool and garden areas and a very beautiful and impeccable maintained Alentejo typical property. Unfortunately, after visiting this place for the 3rd time now, we think that Touril has somehow lost its roots. If you are looking for a pure "Turismo Rural", where you could meet the owners and hear their stories, learn about local food and culture, experience the leaving of the local people and community, Touril does not seem to be the perfect place for that anymore. It’s always crowded with staff and you understand that HT has now turned into a business! Also if you are staying in one of the houses located far for the main residence (such as "Casa do Rendeiro", where we stayed), it looks like you don’t belong to the Herdade.... Do not expect peace if you go outside into the garden, unless you enjoy hearing cars in the main rood! Also "value for money" is no longer one of the positive things of Touril. Just look around and see the alternatives! Well, it was good to introduce this place to our kids and that was the best part of our trip.
