CASA DA ESTALAGEM is located in Ervidel, a beautiful village in the Alljustrel municipality. It lies on an intersection of roads quickly connecting it to Aljustrel, Beja and Ferreira do Alentejo. Near the village lies the Roxo reservoir.
From the late 19th to the mid 20th century, the centennial building of CASA DA ESTALAGEM was an inn for merchants and tradesmen travelling the region. When the current owners bought the property, it was their intention to keep its memory and restore its former function. As the building is a qualified sample of southern Portugal’s architecture, its restoration seeks to keep its spatial and architectural features. Thus, the rammed earth walls, high wooded ceilings, its many arcs, imposing fireplace and water well were kept.
