    Luxury farmscape hotel with spa and swimming pool in the Alentejo region

    Enjoy the Portuguese countryside at São Lourenço do Barrocal, a beautiful estate with a farm. A relaxing hideaway with a luxurious spa, a winery, and bedrooms overlooking the beautiful Alentejo landscape.

    São Lourenço do Barrocal is a luxurious five-star farmscape hotel and monte alentejano - a rural estate - located in a fairly undiscovered corner of the Alentejo in Portugal. Major plus points for the beautiful location: in the foothills of medieval Monsaraz and near Lake Alqueva.

    Holiday here on an estate of 780 hectares, which has been lovingly cared for by the same family for 200 years. The hotel is located in an old, small farming village that has been brought back to life as a hotel, and where you live to the rhythm of daily rural life. So, really relax to the fullest in this understated but luxurious farm hotel amid ancient holm oaks, olive groves, and vineyards. Once you stand between the vast land here, there is a great chance that you will be overcome with a sense of 'coming home'.

    São Lourenço do Barrocal produces top-class exclusive wines in its own winery, making it a perfect holiday destination for the true wine fan. But even if you appreciate a restaurant where dishes go straight from farmer to plate, you will undoubtedly experience moments of happiness at the table here. You can taste their respect for the flavor and simplicity of Alentejo food! You can also enjoy these regional delicacies at home when you shop your holiday souvenirs in the farm shop.

    Ultimate relaxation? That's what you do in the spa with products from the renowned, organic Austrian brand Susanne Kaufmann. The hotel also has an outdoor swimming pool, an organic vegetable garden and orchard, and an outdoor restaurant. Horse lovers are also catered for. São Lourenço do Barrocal has several Lusitano horses that you can ride through the beautiful surroundings. Thanks to the many indoor and outdoor activities, you will never be bored here.

    In Alentejo, the farm and landscape quickly become your home. Want to experience it too? Then book this rural and top-class luxury House of Hideaways accommodation!

    Doing on the estate

    Visit the winery for an exclusive tasting or plan a visit to the hotel's spa. The common denominator; enjoyment! In addition to wine and spa treatments, this particularly fine hotel also offers a whole range of activities. For example, ride a horse along the Roman dam and to the Monsaraz castle at sunset. And be sure to ask the hotel staff for hiking routes, plus a well-stocked picnic basket for the road. Or hop on a bike or treat yourself and your love to an unforgettable balloon ride.

    Rooms with a story

    All rooms of the five-star hotel São Lourenço do Barrocal are beautiful, but we secretly have a few favorites. These are the rooms that were once used for the agricultural machinery and tools. Or the room where the stone oven stood. These rooms not only have history, but are also a bit larger than the rest. Would you prefer a cottage? Then choose a cottage with the most beautiful view, such as cottages 28 and 29.

    Enjoying Portuguese cuisine

    A stay at this luxury hotel includes an organic breakfast in the fresh dining room. And even in the evening, you can enjoy the hotel restaurant. You may repeatedly choose from a menu full of homegrown products and locally produced ingredients. Of course, accompanied by exclusive wines from the São Lourenço do Barrocal winery.

    Spa and Fitness

    The spa is the ultimate in zen and minimalist design. Each treatment room opens onto a white corridor with a vaulted ceiling and there is as little as possible to distract you. Enjoy the hot tub, dry sauna, relaxation room and of course a treatment. Why does the spa bear the name of Susanne Kaufmann? All spa products are from the Susanne Kaufmann brand - that promises a lot of good. And if you haven't sweated enough in the sauna, you can also work up a sweat in the fitness studio. Nice to know: during the summer, free fitness, yoga and Pilates classes are offered here.
