Fodor's Expert Review Cantar do Grilo

Vale de Milhanos, Correia da Mó, Apt. 668, Serpa, Beja, 7830-495, Portugal Fodor's Choice

About a 15-minute drive from Serpa, this modern building just outside the boundaries of the Guadiana Valley Natural Park has traditional Alentejo details like whitewashed exteriors, wood beams, tile floors, and stone fireplaces. Guest rooms that surround a communal patio and swimming pool. There's a generous breakfast spread including Serpa cheeses and other local products. The location is a favorite for nature lovers, and it makes an excellent stop between Serpa and Mértola.
