Enjoy a relaxing getaway in the heart of Alentejo. 


Enjoy a relaxing getaway in the heart of Alentejo. Stay in a hotel of understated luxury, set in the foothills of medieval Monsaraz.

In Detail
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.

Inhabited since Neolithic times by sedentary tribes, São Lourenço do Barrocal was once the epicentre of the megalithic culture of Central Alentejo. This ancient history lays among the barrocais (the huge outcrops dotting the landscape), which represent some of the most monumental natural features of Alentejo.
