The setting for this vacation home is fantastic. It is set among ancient rocks, along a creek and fresh spring, above the River Sever. You are about halfway between 2 villages, Portagem and San Antonio de Arias. Very near Marvao and Castillo de Vide, two lovely tourist attractions. There is beautiful hiking in the area, and we took our bikes...

We were the first to stay here, and were unprepared for the sheer beauty of the surroundings. It is an arid land, and the heat is a dry heat, but there are plenty of cool spots to sit and take in the surroundings - the edge of the property allows a 270 degree vista of the valley, and is a...

About the neighbourhood
Ramila is a very small village of 20 houses at the base of the fortress-town of Marvao. Quinta Relva da Moura sits at the bottom of the village overlooking the Sever River and Spain. This is a forested area within the Sao Mamede National Park. The Marvao area includes, in Portugal, Castelo da Vide, a medieval Jewish town with a castle, Roman ruins, and many other noteworthy sites. The historic towns of Estremoz and Evora are within a short drive. In Spain, the famous cities of Carceres and Merida are within 100K. Perfect area for hiking, bird-watching or excursions.
This truly a majestic area and a perfect place to relax. Cottages owned by Richard Hewitt, author of A Cottage in Portugal, Simon & Schuster.
