Indulge yourself in this multi-starred hotel in the wild Alentejo, a magical and unknown part of Portugal. With fabulous views, just nineteen rooms and exceptional service, this jewel is the dream of a wealthy businessman whose ancestors came from the area. Built beside a ruined wine-growing Roman villa where horses were bred, its themes are water (the spa), wine (seven hectares) and… horses. The farm conversion was designed by one of Portugal’s best architects and a renowned interior designer to be unpretentiously luxurious and modern, a white, black and brown world with some striking art and some bookshelf wallpaper. Natural materials and original design ideas marry well, rooms are big to very big, bathrooms the last thing and the staff absolutely charming. Plenty of activities are to be had without leaving the hotel: the magnificent pool, riding, wine harvest, making, learning, prehistoric and Roman ruins,… Come and experience a degree of pampering and relaxation few other places can offer.
