About Sónia Melo or João M. Gil
Sónia Melo: I am dedicated to providing guests and visitors at Horta Vermelha a holistic experience of the best and most fascinating features the Alentejo has to offer. My work and commitment to Horta Vermelha is paired with my activities in research and policy in international development. João M. Gil: In Horta Vermelha, I hope guests will link to the world, from local to global scale, from the roots in the soil to the world. I transversely apply these ideas in my work also as a Engineer and Photographer, as I do in my engagement with Horta Vermelha.
Why Sónia Melo or João M. Gil chose Borba
Horta Vermelha is fully Licensed and Registered as "Country Cottages/Rural Tourism" with no. 673 RNT, Portuguese Tourism Board.
What makes this Cottage unique
COVID-19: Following the local national recommendations (from DGS, in Portuguese), we have our Contingency Plan, all important frequent touch points are disinfected, as well as furniture, clothings, etc, in between different guests' stays. We use the recommended disinfectants. Hand-gel and masks are also provided for guests. All staff/personnel uses their equipment for the appropriate cleaning. The eco-pool is also disinfected between stays. Due to the pandemic, our decision has been to rent one house at a time, of the two cottages that we have. This means that guests do not share anything with others, and that there is alternate use of the cottages, in between stays.
