Dreams in Alentejo
An exclusive 10-bedroom house and estate, Casa Nossa is the passion project of acclaimed Portuguese chef, José Avillez, and his wife, Sofia. Guests are welcomed to a remote Alentejo home set on 160 acres of land, where every need is cared for by a hand-selected team of chefs and housekeepers.
Close to Campinho, just a short distance from Monsaraz on Alentejo’s Spanish border, Casa Nossa resides in a spectacular and sparsely populated terrain at the northern edge of the Algarve. Renowned for its cuisine and its wine, visitors arrive in unblemished natural landscapes rich with enchanting homes and the rustic monuments of a timeless location.
Alentejo enjoys a pleasant climate all year, however spring and autumn are sublime. The driest months of June to August often approach 40 C but averages of 20 - 25 C in April, May, and October make these months comfortable for most visitors. Winters enjoy regular daytime temperatures of 10 - 15 C.

Designed and decorated by Studio Astolfi, and furnished with artwork curated by Felipa Almeida,
Casa Nossa complements its holm oak and fruit tree surroundings with 10 seamlessly flowing suites and an array of indoor and outdoor living spaces. Earth-toned woods and furnishings sit among white-walled rooms and stone patios overlooking the herb and vegetable gardens between the house and the lake. At the water’s edge, a private mooring allows guests to arrive by boat or use the estate vessel for nautical adventures.
Personally chosen by Chef José Avillez, Casa Nossa’s in-house team liaise with visitors to plan menus before arrival. Served in the dining room, on the lake view terrace, or at any chosen location, farm-to-table seasonal dishes are crafted for each meal, from indulgent dinners to leisurely picnics. Also within the estate is a wine cellar and tasting room to ensure the perfect pairing is always available.
