The land that time forgot...

Lying in the north-east corner of the Alentejo, a stone’s throw from the Spanish border, is the 130 acre Tapada do Falcão Estate. On its doorstep is the Serra de São Mamede Natural Park, a protected area noted for its beauty and nature. This is an exceptional corner of unspoilt Portugal, characterised by pretty whitewashed villages, historic hilltop border towns, rolling vineyards and cork forests. The pace of life is slow and gentle. It is a place to relax the body and restore the soul.

The estate comprises two separate properties – Casa do Outeiro, a newly renovated luxurious three ensuite bedroom house which is available year round to rent on a self-catering basis, and Tapada do Falcão, the main house on the estate and the owners’ private residence, which may be available occasionally on request.

History of the estate

The land comprising the majority of the Tapada do Falcão estate was purchased in or around 1947. Almost 80 years later, the estate suffered major improvements becoming a new reference in the Alto Alentejo.

Our vineyard and wine
