Hotel Profile: São Laurenço do Barrocal

São Laurenço do Barrocal (@sao_lourenco_do_barrocal) is a 40-room country estate, winery, olive grove, ranch, and hotel nestled in the foothills of Portugal’s Alentejo region. Built several centuries ago, the hotel has been family-owned for eight generations. Described as a rural retreat, guests will be enchanted by the hotel’s expansive, farm-like landscape, which presents the opportunity to frolic amongst ancient holm oaks, a private vineyard, olive groves, or enjoy a pleasant picnic at the property’s picturesque meadow. Design lovers will revel at the hotel’s whitewashed edifices and, within the interior, ubiquitous Portuguese vintage pieces paired with contemporary crafted furniture and accessories. Repurposed from its original function, the site’s former farm kennels have been transformed into a chic farm-to-table restaurant. Travelers can choose from a variety of local activities like sailing nearby Lake Aquelva; horseback riding through the olive trees and bucolic pasture within the grounds; exploring storied towns, Monsaraz & Évora; and guided stargazing as the property is part of the constellation-abundant Dark Sky Aquelva Reserve. ✨ 🇵🇹
