The Algarve Odemira

Odemira is a beautiful Portuguese village in the Alentejo with about 2,800 inhabitants, an immense diversity of landscape, extending between the plains, the mountains, and the sea.

Odemira is located on a small hill where the typical whitewashed houses are located facing the Mira river, from where you can navigate 30km along the river to Vila Nova de Milfontes. It is a perfect route to walk, row, and canoeing.

With a coast of great beauty, integrated into the Natural Park of the Southwest Alentejo and Costa Vicentina, the county of Odemira has become a popular holiday destination, with places such as Zambujeira do Mar, Vila Nova de Milfontes, Carvalhal or Almogrove, and the village of Odemira only 30km from the coastal zone.

There are still some traces of the Castle and the Wall from Islamic origins and in another high point of the village there is a windmill that has been preserved and is fully operational, and still working so that you are able to appreciate the traditional grinding of the cereals.

The gastronomic cuisine of Odemira is varied, with fish and very fresh seafood, quality choriço and like any good Alentejana village, good cheese, bread and aguardente de medronho.

Tranquility, tradition, and quality of life is what we find in Odemira.
