Herdade do Gizo
Ranked #5 of 13 Specialty Lodging in Beja
Reviewed September 29, 2013

When booking the villa we clearly got the impression that there was a functioning golf course, a club house and a restaurant but they had all been closed down. They have now finally changed the website to match (the lack of) facilities.
Despite arriving after 4pm our villa wasn't ready for us so had to wait.
The pool area was always completely full and there was not enough sun loungers for us so we had to leave again after calling the staff to ask for more chairs. They didn't have any.
The big panorama window in the living room hadn't been washed for ages and you could hardly see out.
The only positive thing was the stunning landscape.

Herdade do Gizo is one of many rural tourism places in Alentejo, that is part of a farm (cows, in this case). It is divided between houses bought as 2nd home for vacation and houses put for renting. The latter are almost brand new and have all the facilities and equipment perfect to feel as if you were at your vacation house too. The houses are very big, with a tremendous floor-to-ceiling window facing marvellous countryside views.

The services could be easily better (eg, no bar in the swimming pool, inactive club house) and we were told that they were going to, but it was still a very nice place to spend some days with the kids, playing around in the pool, riding the farm's horses or biking on the fields.

If you are planning to visit Portugal's country side and looking for some relaxing moments,then this resort near Beja should definitely be on your list! About 50 wonderfull and confortable villas paint in white the vast green fields. The villas are well designed and fully equiped. You can spend all day listening mother nature talking to you, silence is the word of the day. If you love nature, you'll be in close contact with different bird species,cows,horses,rabbits,goats,etc. If you are looking for some fun, the outdoor swimming pools are amazing (1 for adults and 1 for kids), located on a top of a hill, with an astonishing view. A golf driving range,slide,canoeing,horse riding are also availble services for some extra fun. Wireless internet is not available on the villas, only at reception and lounge. I'd recommend this resort for families with kids. Best months to go are July and September. Avoid August!
