The German-born owner and manager, Cornelia, lives on the Alentejo coast in southern Portugal since two decades, and still, again and again, is intrigued by the diversity and natural beauty of the area that in most parts is classified as Natural Park or National Ecological Reserve. Convinced that the almost untouched and culturally still authentic landscape between the Atlantic Ocean and the Monchique mountains has all ingredients to be a prime destination for nature tourism, she decided in 2008 to convert the private property into a rural tourism that reconciles "Nature & Comfort".
Maintaining the spirit of her original profession as development consultant and based on an ecological concept, Cornelia developed and now runs a very special holiday place with a unique atmosphere and great hospitality, which blends local culture and cosmopolitan style. At present, the nature tourism of “SELÃO DA EIRA – Turismo Rural no Alentejo” has 7 high-standard accommodations with modern comfort in a genuinely natural setting - cozy hideaways for singles and couples and true "homes from home" for families and anyone who wants to slow down and get away for a while from the modern pace of life. They are distributed over the three neighbouring sites SALGADINHO - SÍTIO DAS ROLAS - SELÃO DA EIRA VELHA.
Supported by her staff and her Thai daughter, a doctor of Thai Traditional Medicine, Cornelia takes pride in making the guests feel at home while staying in this peaceful place. Her long-term personal ambition is to create a holiday destination that is attractive and accessible also for travelers in wheelchair or with other forms of reduced mobility, and for families who integrate and care for a person with mental constraints. Two houses and one of the three swimming pools are adapted for wheelchair, and parts of the Nature Paradise SELÃO DA EIRA VELHA will soon be accessible on wheels, too.
Dedicated to promoting not only the private business, but also the development of local potentials for the benefit of the rural that has become her home, Cornelia does not run short of ideas and visons. The most recent developments include the opening of a small Café in the Nature Paradise along the hiking route “Rota Vicentina”, the creation of loop trails for light walking in the local private forests, and establishment of a Thai-Ayurveda Treatment Centre for natural health care.
