Craveiral Farmhouse

Craveiral Farmhouse

Where the revitalizing powers of nature and the sophisticated comfort of modern life unite to offer a sanctuary of education and relaxation.

A rustic farmhouse with a contemporary design, Craveiral Farmhouse harks back to the simplicities of the past and combines this with the comforts of modern living. Authenticity, belonging, simplicity, sharing and wellbeing are key concepts that are at the heart of everything that happens and is created at Craveiral. This countryside farm allows you to enjoy the rhythms of nature, the calmness of slow-moving days and the freshness of orchard-grown produce.

 

Nine hectares of fresh air and abundant flora provide the setting for four clusters of quaint cottages, 38 in total, decorated in an understated, contemporary style and equipped to suit all those who like to feel at home while away.

 

Craverial is where the comfort of fresh sheets mixes with the delight of walking barefoot over the land. From refreshing pool dips to intimate conversations shared around a warming fire, Craveiral reminds us of what it means to enjoy the simplicity of life and strip back our daily stresses to live in greater harmony with the natural world.

Regenerative Impact

Built in harmony with its calming, abundant natural surroundings, Craveiral Farmhouse provides the ideal bridge between a rustic, nature-focused existence and the recognizable comforts of modern life. Everything the hotel does respects the Alentejo landscape and members of the local community while providing guests with the opportunity to disconnect from the stresses of more urban existences. 

Craveiral has a farm-to-table restaurant with a preference for products from the region and Craveiral’s own organic garden. At the Farmhouse, there is ample focus on fresh, seasonal, and local products bought from small producers or sourced from the farm’s own orchard and permaculture garden.
Staying true to Craveiral’s identity as a fundamentally nature experience, the farmhouse was the target of a prior environmental impact study, and structures were built to respect their natural surroundings as well as to protect the most fragile areas. During the building phase, only four pines were cut down (and these were diseased) and, in total, the built area only occupies 4% of the property’s 9 hectares.
Sustainability is at the core of the Craveiral Farmhouse’s operations. The garden is watered from a borehole and rainwater is used to water the landscape. Moreover, grey water (from washing) is treated and reused to flush the toilets and water the land. The Farmhouse also keeps waste to a minimum through composting and recycling of surpluses from the garden and restaurant to feed the farm’s goats, chicken, and pigs.
In partnership with the Vila com Vida Association and APCO (Cerebral Palsy Association of Odemira), Craveiral Farmhouse employs young people with cognitive impairment, who help bring the organic Pizzeria Com Vida to life. For each meal bought at the hotel’s organic pizzeria, €1 is also donated to the charity, Associação Vila.
