Portugal Holiday Apartments

The house and its grounds have been exquisitely converted into holiday apartments. Located in the Ourem region of Portugal, the area is teeming with history. The legend of Oureana was disclosed by Frei Bernardo de Brito in the 'Chronicle of the Cistercian Order "(Book VI, Chapter I).

In a surprise attack at Alcácer, in 1158, the Christian Gonçalo Hermigues, with his companions, kidnapped the Moorish princess named Fátima and took her to the Mountain range of Aire. It was later changed to the name of the princess.

Later in captivity, the Moor fell in love with the Christian princess and they decided to baptize themselves in to order for them to marry. in the Baptism, they changed their names to Oureana. Hence, according to legend, the Village Ourém in Oureana was named after them.

Going through the cedar grove that leads to Quinta da Alcaidaria-Mór is just the first step to enter an universe full of history and tradition: the home of the Alvaiázere family. In this 17th century manor house, some pages of history have been written, from the Napoleonic Invasions to the Order of Malta. Even D. Nuno Álvares Pereira, in 1385, prayed in the small chapel that is now part of the Quinta, asking for Saint Luzia's divine protection on his way to Aljubarrota battle where he would obtain a glorious victory.

It's a bucolic scenery of peace and quiet that in the recent years became the stage for Alexandra Lencastre and Rogério Samora, during the shooting of the Portuguese film “O Delfim”, by director Fernando Lopes.
