“In the same family for over 200 years, the estate has its heart at the monte, an ancient small farming village, which has been brought carefully back to life as a remarkable hotel of understated luxury, surrounded by ancient holm oaks, olive groves and vineyards. Here, the feeling of being at home is intimately connected with the sense of belonging to the vastness of the land. In Alentejo, farm and landscape soon become your home. On the way to your room, let yourself be carried away by the fleeting aroma that escapes through the open doors of our winery; at harvest time, share the hustle and bustle that the production of our blends brings to the surrounding landscape. And, by the reflecting pool or in the comfort of your sofa, make a toast to life.”
São Lourenço do Barrocal is one of Portugal’s most special properties. Starting with its location, in the deep Alentejo, close to the medieval town of Monsaraz and nearby the Alqueva Lake. This is a family-owned property, which after an intense renovation process went from a typical “Monte Alentejano” to a remarkable luxury countryside hotel. Sustainability is key in this property, not only when it comes to the environment, but also to the local culture and traditions. The architecture respects its origins, with artisan touches; the restaurant serves local food, respecting the local flavours and simplicty; the activities you can do inside the property take into consideration ancient local traditions – pottery, horse riding, wine tastings, etc.. This is the perfect rustic retreat, for everyone looking for an unpretentious luxury experience.
