About us

Casa do Forte is a countryside homestay located 5km away from Elvas’ center.DSC_0039 copy

The main house was first built more than 100 years ago and it has been home to the Martins Balsas’ family since 1955 until today. Casa do Forte was totally renovated in 2015 with the main focus on preserving the house interior and exterior original features while bearing in mind the required comfort to offer its guests.

The house is characterised by its peaceful atmosphere and its surrounding nature. From the terrace you can enjoy a relaxing view of the unique Alentejo landscape. 

We have 5 bedrooms available with private bathroom, air conditioning and TV. And in the hottest days of summer our guests will certainly enjoy our pleasant swimming pool!

You can also contact us for the organisation and catering of family events, birthday parties, company events, etc!DSC_0060

The Balsas’ family is more than happy to host you, your family and your friends!
