Casas do Rio Sado
Sado River Country Retreat

Approximately one hour south of Lisbon, near the village of Santa Margarida do Sado, our fifteen guest suites invite you to live to the rhythm of nature and everyday pleasures of Alentejo.

The property is set on a 270 hectare estate, along the banks of the River Sado, and with paddy fields, agricultural land and forests of pine and cork oak trees.

planta geral da propriedade


The river with its rice paddies and the cork tree woods create a rich and diverse ecosystem with an abundance of wildlife. Flamingoes, storks, herons, loons, ducks and other water birds inhabit the river and paddy fields, in peaceful coexistence with the hares, wild rabbits and partridges. Here you will see sheep grazing on the land and may even come across a wild boar.

water, earth, fire, air

In these rural houses, guests are invited to slow down and contact with the four elements: the water in the river and rice paddies; the land covered with ancestral cork woods and filled with rural tradition; the fire in the convivial spaces, and the clean unpolluted air full of natural scents.
