    São Lourenço do Barrocal

    Set on a 780-hectare estate of olive groves and vineyards, 7km west of Monsaraz, this rural tourism stay offers countryside charm that doesn’t stint on high-end comforts. What was once a self-contained farming village has been transformed into lovely boutique accommodation, and the excellent restaurant uses many products grown or raised on-site.

    Dom Nuno

    Inside the old walls, this delightful, family-run guesthouse was one of Monsaraz' first lodging options when it opened in 1983. Today this historic building (a pharmacy in the 1700s) is run by the second generation, and it offers eight spacious rooms with thick walls, terracotta floors and bright, modern bathrooms. The best rooms have views over the countryside. Good breakfasts.

    Casa Pinto

    A touch of class and the downright quirky pervades this five-room guesthouse. Each room has a design theme based around former Portuguese colonies, from Macau to Mombasa. We’re talking serious embellishments, from a stone-walled waterfall shower (Mombaça) to lovely Buddha statues (Dili) and much more besides. Fabulous terrace views and pleasant living spaces.

    Casa Saramago

    Based in Telheiro, at the foot of Monsaraz, this delightfully converted blue and white quinta (estate) is great value for money. Rooms are tastefully decorated in old-style furniture. The Portuguese owners are friendly and accommodating. Rooms in the former celeiros (silos) have verandas and face Monsaraz.

    Vila Planicie

    Down in Telheiro, roughly 2km from Monsaraz, this pleasant guesthouse has spacious, nicely appointed rooms (some have kitchenette) with terracotta floors and windows overlooking the vineyards next door. The poosl (take your pick; there are two) are a lovely spot to cool off in summer.
