The lovely town of Odemira is set within the Natural Park of the South West Alentejo and Vincentina Coast area of Portugal (PNSACV). The river Mira runs through the town and is approximately 15 kilometres from some the country’s most beautiful beaches. This region is a combination of natural beauty and stunning beaches, crossed with wild and untamed stretches of land all exhibiting a vegetation rich in a diversity of species.
In 2007, whilst walking through Odemira, Beatriz discovered a small abandoned house for sale. It stood on a slope surrounded by olive trees and cork oaks with a wonderful view of the River Mira. Here she had discovered a tiny paradise within the town itself.
Situated in this idyllic location Beatriz’s Chocolaterie is a bijoux where the work being predominantly carried out by hand without the help of any large machinery. At the chocolaterie you may watch the chocolates being made, taste a variety of samples and buy as many or as few of the chocolates you like best...

When visiting Odemira, take the path which follows the river and within a moment you will find yourself in front of the Chocolaterie.
On returning to the Old Castle area of town you will discover a wonderful view of the river. There are many interesting shops and the Library José Saramango, dedicated to the famous Portuguese author, is well worth a visit.

Inside the market building you can visit C.A.C.O.(an association of artisans who work in our district) or buy an excellent goat cheese. Going back direction river, one can also visit the weaving atelier, where original pieces are created of superior quality.

In case you have energy left, please go and visit the high part o f the village where you can find an antique windmill which, if you are lucky, is functioning (if windy). Here local families still have their maize milled for animal feed or for a typical local type of maize porridge (“papas de milho”).
