São Lourenço do Barrocal

Boutique hotel in Monsaraz

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.

You can arrange loads of activities, including horse riding, biking excursions, picnics, walks in the countryside and wine tasting. There’s also a spa, an appealing bar and plenty of options for children. The estate is located off the M514.
