An introduction to Casa Azimute

How would you describe Casa Azimute in a nutshell?

Views, comfort and time — Casa Azimute is a place where time passes slowly. Where you don’t have to rush or do anything at all.

What was the inspiration/story behind Casa Azimute?

The idea for having a place in Portugal came about following my first trip to the country when I was 16. It’s stayed with me ever since and during a visit to Portugal back in 2012, we travelled throughout the country — north to south — and eventually ended in Alentejo.

During the trip, we were inspired by other places and realised that the contemporary style we loved could work in Portugal. So we decided that if we found a property in Alentejo with beautiful views, we would take the plunge. From that moment on, everything happened very quickly.

How would you describe the atmosphere of Casa Azimute and what do you love about it?

Casa Azimute is contemporary and minimalistic but still warm, which was extremely important to us. We wanted people to feel at home but also appreciate that a lot of thought had gone into the architecture and interior design. In creating the casa, we also wanted to retain something of the original property so guests could feel the story behind it and, in a way, bring new life to it.

The location of the casa is on the direct line between the two castles of Estremoz and Evora in a region that’s still authentic. Wherever you are, there are always views and a connection with nature, with the sun’s orientation and weather constantly changing the casa’s appearance.

How long do you recommend guests stay?

I would recommend staying at least three nights, as guests who visit for only two nights always say they wish they’d been able to stay longer. But a week is really perfect as you have for some culture, maybe some wine tasting, as well as spend a day beside the pool or just relaxing at the casa.

Is it suitable for families, couples or both?

We do accept children but we haven’t specifically catered to them. So in that sense, it’s more suited to couples and a place to relax, rest and enjoy the silence. But that being said, we have a swimming pool and 28 acres where kids can roam free and find their own entertainment.

Casa Azimute rooms & rates

Casa Azimute is located at the end of a 300-metre-long road. When you step inside the house, you can immediately see the swimming pool and views towards Estremoz. There’s an informal reception area here and a living space that can be used for reading or having breakfast.

A corridor leads from here to the four ground-floor rooms, all of which offer sweeping views. The rooms are between 25 and 33 square metres, they feel spacious because of their minimalistic design — and all have a small veranda where you can relax. On the first floor are two larger suites. One of the suites is decorated in bright yellow and has an outdoor shower while the other is blue-hued, with a bathtub and framed views across the surrounding landscape.

We also offer bicycle rentals and a massage service, with plenty of trails on the property for walking or jogging. We’ve collaborated with some of the surrounding wineries to offer tastings for guests, as well as with local tour operators if you want to go stand-up paddleboarding on the nearby lakes or hot air ballooning at sunrise. Alternatively, we can organise a guide to help guests explore Alentejo’s cities and recommend restaurants in the surrounding towns and villages.

Things to do in Alentejo & Estremoz

  • Art / Culture
  • Shopping / Markets
  • Wine tastings
  • Massages / Treatments
  • Hiking
  • Cycling
  • Horseback riding

Many of our guests come from big cities, so first and foremost, I’d say just experience the quietness and freedom — enjoy the openness and breathe.

Elvas is around 30 minutes’ drive away and great for cultural sightseeing, as is Evora whose historic centre is UNESCO world heritage-listed. Many of the surrounding villages are also worth exploring and situated on hilltops that offer amazing views.

The region is also becoming well known for its wine production and the coast of Comporta can also be visited on a day trip. I’d highly recommend taking a sunrise hot air balloon tour as the landscape of Alentejo is incredible from the air.

The location of Casa Azimute

Casa Azimute is situated centrally in Alentejo, which has a completely different atmosphere and landscape from the coast. It’s still very unspoilt (and you don’t have to queue to visit the region’s monuments), with open views that change throughout the seasons. The property is located three kilometres from Estremoz, which has some very good restaurants and a really colourful market that takes place each Saturday morning.

When is the best time to visit Alentejo?

Each season has something to offer. Spring is incredibly green and filled with flowers, although the weather can be a bit unpredictable. Then the landscape slowly changes over summer and it feels somewhat like Africa, with warm winds and bright, yellow colours. Autumn is still very nice weather-wise but I also like winter, as there are warm, beautiful days and (compared to much of Europe at this time) it’s really perfect for walking and exploring the cities.
