Surroundings

Cabeço de Vide is situated in the east of the Alto Alentejo between Estremoz and Portalegre. The region is hilly with many cork trees, olive trees and stone oaks.

In the surroundings are still many old historic cities to see where you still see much of the old portuguese culture.
Visiting cities like Évora, Estremoz, Elvas, Marvão, Castelo de Vide and Portalegre is definately worth while. Alter Pedroso is closeby and has a magnificent view.
In Vila Viçosa you can find the royal palace and in Arraiolos they are still making the real portuguese carpets.
In Alter do Chão you can visit the royal stables which are even for those not interested in horses impressive.
