Monte Velho



Herdade do Monte Velho is a stunning new 6 room boutique hotel in an estate that is surrounded by an eco-reserve in the region of Alentejo, Portugal. Inherently connected to the Lusitano horse, the philosophy of this Chic Retreat is to make use of the produce that has been developed in the surrounding agricultural land for over twenty years. The award-winning Monte Velho Stud Farm has made a name for itself nationally and internationally as one of the best breeders of the Lusitano horse. The 'Monte' or main building dates back to the Roman era with several additions over the years to create a traditional Alentejo farmhouse, the latest of which adds a stunning contemporary aspect to the building.  

Monte Velho combines a luxurious stay in bright contemporary rooms with unique and authentic Portuguese experiences in Alentejo, one of the most unspoilt and protected areas of Portugal.


As can be expected all sorts and levels of riding lessons can be arranged at Monte Velho ranging from dressage, private lessons for beginners and field trips. Mountain bikes are provided free of charge for all guests and there are some stunning paths to explore within the estate and further afield. Monte Velho have their own Indian canoes which guests can use on the property's lake where you can also enjoy a spot of fishing. Just 10 minutes away by car Arraiolos is a Roman town with medieval castles, beautiful architecture and some traditional Alentejo restaurants. A little further away is Evora, a National Heritage Site with the Temple of Diana, a Roman cathedral and many prehistoric monuments and traditional shops.


Delicious home made traditional dishes can be prepared on request.
