Vale da Cegonha

Fully Wheelchair Accessible Luxury Self Catering Holiday Accommodation

Luxury Country House - Casas Coruja ea Aguia
Luxury Country House - Casas Coruja ea Aguia












Vale da Cegonha offers the very best of country living and is fully wheelchair accessible. Set within 20 acres (7 hectares) of gloriously unspoilt countryside, the two houses (Casa Aguia and Casa Coruja) were built to reflect the style of the traditional long low Alentejo farmhouses.

When we developed Casa Aguia and Casa Coruja we wanted to ensure that they were stylish and elegant, as well as fully wheelchair accessible - allowing everyone to enjoy a holiday in this lovely area of Portugal, regardless of personal mobility.
This was achieved using subtle design features, such as wider doorways, level thresholds and terraces, and gently sloping pathways. Please see our Accessibility page for full details.

Both Casa Aguia and Casa Coruja are extremely spacious and furnished to the highest standards: including solid wood furnishings and leather lounge suites.
The fully equipped kitchens also have solid wood furnishings with granite worktops.

For your safety there are also fire blankets and extinguishers installed, as well as a basic first aid boxes (should you need them).

Both country houses are designed for your comfort, regardless of the season or the climate. Each house has a wood-burning stove for the cooler winter months and fans available for the summer.

Each country home has a private covered barbecue terrace for alfresco dining, with lawned areas beyond. A path then leads to the pool terrace which is available to all guests. The pool is heated and measures 10 x 5 meters. Beside the pool there is a shady pergola as well as a sun terrace with loungers.

All of the terraces offer spectacular views over the valley toward the distant hills.
Spending the evening dining alfresco and enjoying the glorious sunset, complete with a glass of delicious local wine, is the perfect way to end the day. Thanks to the clean and clear air the night skies treat you to a dazzling display of starlight.

The Alentejo is the largest Region of Portugal but also the least populated, often described  as ‘Portugal’s secret paradise’ and ‘Europe’s last undiscovered wilderness’; both are true.

The landscape is of gently rolling hills topped with cork and holm oaks and crystal clear lakes and rivers, reminding many of the plains of Southern Africa, but the carpet of wild flowers in Springtime, remind others of Provence. It is a land of unspoilt natural beauty and home to a vast array of wildlife, including magnificent birds of prey.

Truly, the Alentejo is paradise found.

This area of Portugal has much to offer: history, culture, nature and wildlife, as well as activity and adventure - and our central location means that all places of interest are within easy reach, whatever your choice may be.

Vale da Cegonha - open to all for the holiday of your choice:

..........the perfect place for everyone

Guest Reviews

"Lovely spacious accommodation. Absolutely ‘5 star’.
Hospitality as good as ever. We will be back"

- Dave and Pat

"I honestly couldn't fault your hospitality and the thinking you had put into the accommodation from an access point of view - certainly for the majority of Independent Spinal Injured visitors I think you have it pretty well covered.

The balance you have struck between being a comfortable villa for a holiday but with the thought about requirements for a wheelchair user is superb and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to able bodied or disabled friends alike.

You made everything easy. Great information on service and accommodating requests. Thank you for your hospitality and your help
- we both really enjoyed our holiday."

- Richard and Stephanie

"Penny & Greg made us feel very welcome. Super, fully self-contained accommodation at Vale da Cegonha. A stunning countryside location with beautiful wildflowers and wildlife, but not too far from fabulous restaurants at very reasonable prices. If you want peace and relaxation, this is the place for you."

My family stayed there for two weeks in July/August and we are already anxious to go back... The house was lovely and had all the right conditions for a wheelchair, including an excellent bathroom for a person with special needs. Penny and Greg we hope to see you soon... as well as "your sunset"
