Quinta do Chocalhinho

I was looking at a white building with striking blue windows and doors. Behind me were the serene and peaceful hills of Alentejo. Donkeys were grazing to my right and wild flowers blossoming to my left. Suitcases in hand, I stopped to absorb the picturesque scenery at Quinta do Chocalhinho. "Let me take those suitcases off your hands", the owner Luís said enthusiastically as he approached me. Around here, a warm welcome is a given.

The room has a modern interior with traditional Portuguese elements. The white bed makes for a beautiful contrast with the brick wall. And then there is the view... A feast for the eyes and a perfect opportunity to let your thoughts wander. Luís softly tapped my shoulder and brought me back to planet earth. He invited me to have a bite to eat so he could tell me all about the attractions in the area. I couldn’t wait.

Later that day, I found myself on the bed trying to plan the next day. He had given me so much inspiration! Perhaps I would go for a walk or visit the animals at the farm. Another option was to take a canoe down Mira river. As I recalled Luís’ story, my heart melted once again. He was raised right here by his grandfather. What a remarkable place!

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options. 
  • Are you the main driver? Then you must meet the minimum or maximum age requirements as stated in the car rental terms and conditions, have a credit card in your name (including PIN number) and a valid driving license.

Tip: If you are travelling with 4 or more people, it is advisable to book an upgrade or an extra car. You can select the car upgrade in the booking steps. Do you want to book an extra car? Please contact us.
