Verdemar is a special country retreat, hidden away among stands of cork oaks in Casas Novas, 7 km from Cercal. It offers 7 rooms, with all the conditions for a well deserved relaxed rest to enjoy the country side, the beautiful beaches of the area and the flavours from chef Nuno's familiar kitchen, where “as you wish” are the watch words and the art of being a good host is a "must".

A ll rooms are independent with en-suite bathroom and entrance to the garden, a spacious outdoor area with a lawn, biologic al vegetable garden, fruit and olive trees, where you can pass the time of day in the pool, with a book from the library or playing table tennis or table football.

The site occupied by a former Tavern – which retains some of the original features - gave way to the living room with books, music, bar, and an open kitchen, where you can sample some recipes, prepared at the experienced hand of the owner, which will give you an unforgettable dining experience, both on those hot summer days, and the days on which to be warmed by the fireplace during the winter.

If you prefer to explore the area, you can do it by walking, bicycle or by taking a ride in a convertible 1979 Land Rover. There are also marked trekking trails through rice fields, moors and cork tree forests where you can watch the area’s plants and birds. On these occasions you can use homemade guides- a special touch of the Verdemar- as a cultural itinerary of the region.

    and Nuno Vilas Boas

    The Verdemar was born almost 30 years ago, when Nuno swapped his restaurant in Amsterdam for the makeshift kitchen in a rustic tavern that he had bought in a village near Cercal. With Christine, his better half, a specialist in restoration, they have celebrated a life devoted to artistic skills creating a place full of charisma and affection, like a piece of art sculpted by the two.
