The property is located between the city of Estremoz and the village of Borba, approximately 175 kilometres from Lisbon and 40 kilometres from Spain.

Estremoz is in the very centre of the prolific marble-quarry region of the Alentejo.

Surrounded by 17th-century fortifications this town was one of the most important fortifications in the country and the influence of other cultures is reflected in the battlements which have a Moorish feel.
