Highlights

How does a quick dip in the ocean followed by a home-style brunch with local bread and fruit juice from your backyard—before you even open your laptop for your first e-meeting on Zoom—sound? Quinta Camarena invites you to relocate to the rustic countryside charm of Cercal do Alentejo and work remotely as a digital nomad. Indulge in long days in the sunshine, relax by the pool and enjoy the sounds of the birds and sheep while you live the simple joys of a workcation. And if you get restless, there's a world of activities that will fill your days when you step away from the screen. Use the indoor gym with an outdoor deck and exercise surrounded by nature. Have a run up and down the hills of the property. Practice your down dog in the yoga pavilion. Try your hand at surfing and SUPing on the coast. Keep your productivity in check as you choose the pace and work mode that best suits you.
